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.

ARM is and will be more efficient than x86. but that doesn't mean it does or will matter.

intel has proven it can do VERY low power x86, and they are just getting started. they have had fully one ("1") x86 chip low power enough for cell phones. just. getting. started..

amd selling out to samsung or whoever would be fine. amd has been the walking dead since they stopped being competitive with intel at the same time as the ARM ascendancy.
