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.

AMD had 750, 760 chipsets in early Athlon era (some data about them in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_AMD_chipsets ). But IIRC they were quite expensive, people were mostly buying VIA-chipped motherboards.


i've never seen the 760 in the wild, but the 750 was realy popular
could be because it was one of only 2 chipsets for slot-a ;)
