Never said AMD would take over Intel....not any time soon anyway...

the point being is AMD is obviously not in any sort of danger in terms of 'failing' in either producing a CPU, getting their name out there, or consumers buying it...

A huge coorperation should be able to offer cheap prices and theoretically better product if they can put more money towards it...but is this the case? No...not only that but now Intel has gone to court a few different times for being considered 'scandelous' and the entire freakin country of japan has called them "Cheats" for not abiding with anti-monopoly laws.....on top of THAT, they still have a more expensive less performing CPU in terms of performance/price

As far as saying "AMD isnt making squat for earnings", unless you actually work in their main offices and are head of marketing and management....then I'd say you wouldn't have a clue....in terms of who makes the most in comparison to intel, then yeah of course it's going to be vastely different.

Intel makes a much larger range of products than AMD. The desktop CPU market is only part of it.

Secondly, what do you know about financial accounting or the stock market? Its right there in black and white on their quarterly earnings report. Any stockholder in AMD gets this in the mail, and any potential investor can look it up on eTrade or any number of other sites.

Their earnings are poor. Do you want to dispute this? Go look them up yourself. I bet they even have an investor relations section of their website. Download their Quarterly report and take a look. Take a look at their balance sheets and their income statements. You don't need to be an insider with a company to know whether or not they are making any money. Companies in this country are required to maintain dilligent and accurate public reporting of all financial information.

If you want, I can post their financials in this thread and break them down for you, or you can even check them out for yourself:

Take a look at the second link to their income statement. Look at all that red. You don't need to know much about accounting to get a picture of whats going on.

They're a company thats growing, but they aren't growing very fast. They've got a long road ahead of them.
