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.

When it comes to general usage, what does "late on the CPU front for a while now" even mean? Because CPUs have been more than powerful enough, in such usage, for a while now.

There are only really two home PC areas which can be still starved for power - gaming and video editing. In both, the GPU kinda matters more; so in both, AMD is the one with an edge, thanks to more capable integrated GPUs.
