AMD

AMD reported its fourth quarter and full year results for 2017 yesterday evening. The company's financial results are easily the best its posted in five years and arguably some of the best results we've seen in a decade (this last needs a bit of unpacking, but we'll get to that).

And fully deserved, too, despite the somewhat overly adulatory attitude many seem to have towards AMD.

It is so nice to say AMD actually being rewarded for the hard work they have put in for both improving their product and improving their organization so they can immediately benefit.

Intel is a behemoth that is being attacked from all sides now. So far Intel has always shown that in such situations they step up their game but it doesn't look like they are able to do that. The last 5 years they have only very gradually improved their performance while reducing power-consumption (to compete with ARM) and they still didn't succeed in keeping ARM out of pc's and completely failed at getting into mobile themselves. Now AMD has caught up performance-wise and it will be consumers that will benefit with more choice, lower prices and better products.

A great example of competition benefitting the market (despite only having a few big players and quite a lot of unfair behavior)
