AMD "Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase & Co to explore options, which could include a potential sale, as the chipmaker struggles to find a role in an industry increasingly focused on mobile and away from traditional PCs, according to three sources familiar with the situation." Woah. Bad news for competition in the x86 space.

Samsung would like to take Intel on. They are already hinting at that direction with the new Chromebook sporting an Exynos 5 processor.

Samsung actually has the resources and fabs to compete head to head with Intel, so they could be a very dangerous competitor.
