AMD Denies CPU Graphics Business Split Rumors


AMD denies rumors that they would be splitting their CPU and graphics businesses, after Reuters published an exclusive report which said that AMD was considering a "break-up or spin-off". Reuters had stressed in their article that AMD were only considering the possibility and that no decision has yet been made.

AM Dhas now made an official statement saying that a break-up or separation of the business is not something that is being worked on at this time.


"While we normally would not comment on such a matter, we can confirm that we have no such project in the works at this time. We remain committed to the long-term strategy we laid out for the company in May at our Financial Analyst Day."


AMD Denies CPU Graphics Business Split Rumors  


 Last quarter AMD made a net loss of $180 million, though the company has a positive outlook for the rest of this year, forecasting a return to profitability by the end of this year. 

Next year AMD will be debuting their new Zen CPU architecture and plan on taking back a large amount of market share back with this launch. 

A lot of AMD's future depends on the next year, where the company will be finally be moving off the 28nm manufacturing node and into a all new CPU architecture. We for one hope AMD that Zen will bring AMD back to their glory days, like when the first Athlon CPU launched many moons ago or maybe even when the 1090T was launched. Some serious CPU rivalry is what will lead to a much more exciting PC market for both consumers and enthusiasts alike.

There is so much speculation and negative press on the net surrounding AMD, we at OC3D stand firm in our views that the industry needs a strong AMD to keep competition alive and keep the market and technology moving forward at fast pace.

I heard about this and the Rueters report wasn't all that convincing tbh but it's gotten a lot of attention as of late and it was smart for AMD to comment on it to keep investors from selling there stock and further hurting the company.. I'm glad AMD are committed to trying to get back to their glory days. Consumers need this. No other company is in a position to even begin to think they could compete with Intel nor any other company to also rival Nvidia.Quote

Bring back the Green AMD and give ATi their red back Quote

I never understood why they merged the brands. AMD CPUs have been underwhelming for years now and AMD made quite a few statements to say that they weren't going to compete with Intel and would just keep banging out good value CPUs.

So why would you take a company that had just had massive success with the 5000 series Radeons and call them AMD? it's hardly like AMD were kicking any ass. Making good GPUs doesn't make your CPUs look any better...Quote

I think the original story was FUD. The timing of it is way too close to the Fury X release to be pure coincidence. The obvious choice of who to blame (Nvidia) is probably innocent, my guess would be someone trying to tank AMD stock so they can rake in some cash with the (hopefully) improved situation for AMD.Quote

When they merged the CPUs and GPUs together, i.e. with the APUs, it made more sense to keep an AMD CPU and GPU brand inside of the chip so to speak. It would confuse those who didn't know Ati=AMD to have "Ati graphics" inside of an AMD APU.Quote
