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.

The same in true in video cards market, if you don't have the full range or halo products no one notices you at all. Nvidia and AMD are very close and competitive. Everybody else S3, Matrox, etc have died a death.

Technically those two aren't dead (yet?) - Matrox making some niche products ( www.matrox.com is there to check), S3 as a GFX component of Via chipsets.
