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.

I agree but on the mobile side there is still Samsung Enyo, and nVidia Tegra, and Apple A6. I know mobile != desktop but the success of those other companies in mobile isn't helping AMD at all.

Mostly gone are the days that AMD was the yin to Intel's yang. Even Intel is a late entry to mobile with Atom and Apple is talking about eventually using the A6 in MacBook Air. The duopoly is in trouble for sure.
