Intel & AMD
« on: July 25, 2006, 05:41:50 PM »
I just can't help it but to write about these two companies... Although most of us won't have the chance to purchase shares in these 2 companies. Nevertheless, these 2 have factories in Malaysia and there may be employees of AMD/Intel here.

Intel shares have dropped tremendously from more than USD30 to now about USD18, last time I checked. Furthermore, they announced that 1000 employees will be retrenched worldwide.

AMD is eating into Intel's market share. Dell has agreed to use AMD chips. Wonder will Apple do so too... Hmmm.... Anyways, latest news is that:
"Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD), the world’s second-biggest semiconductor maker, agreed to buy ATI Technologies Inc for US$5.4bil, adding computer-graphics chips to its product line-up" - biz.thestar.com.my

Definitely, in the future, I will buy AMD for my desktop :)

Intel shares will go up again because they got the more powerful CPUs again. I think they will overtake back AMD.
