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.

Ah yes, Slot B; though Socket B is new to me. And did I remember correctly about some plans for Slot A (and/or Socket A?) Alphas? The world of computing could be somewhat different if we had those...

Oh well, too bad the Itanium was so successful... (in persuading most of the competition to exit the market)
