    Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Display - 7/25/2017 12:00:00 AM - 22.19.128.0 update has reduced display resolution to a maximum of 1280 * 1024

    I would agree if AMD were supporting ATI 2000, 3000, 4000 series graphics but they're not. AMD only support Windows 8 on these ranges.

    Microsoft is interested to buy Advanced Micro Devices

    Hi there

    Not sure if that would make any sort of business sense -- AMD is probably going into terminal decline anyway. Will take a while but IMO AMD is essentially living on borrowed time.

    Snapdragon stuff for phones etc, and Intel for other devices with a few special graphics GPU's for gamers. I think for non specialized gaming machines things emanating from AMD - especially things like Nvidia stuff probably have caused more aggro than any other hardware component since the first ABACUS was invented.

    AMD could probably pay off Greece's instalment to the IMF - although it's leaking cash even quicker than Greece !!! but other than that it's a ZOMBIE corporation -- if you own any stock in it FLOG IT QUICK.

    @fracking4oil -- as an old Oil engineer -- Fracking doesn't get OIL -- you get GAS from it (not GASOLINE !!!!). You can of course LIQUIFY GAS for use in motor vehicles etc - LNG and LPG are two common examples but most of the products of fracking outside the USA would be used for ELECTRICITY generation -- much less carbon intensive than a lot of current systems (and FAR safer than any Nuclear option). Probably get slaughtered by the Green Party here but to be independent from regimes like Russia, Saudi etc etc is probably worth going this route until real carbon free renewable CHEAP energy can be generated in volume and with ability to STORE it.

    Companies like TESLA look good as they are now making Batteries that can STORE the solar energy generated -- problem with Solar has been that you haven't been able to STORE the electricity and use it when the sun isn't available.

    ...end of lecture !!!!!!!!!

    Cheers

    Not only that, It would probably damage their existing excellent relationship with Intel.

    I don't see them wanting to do that.

    Windows 8 and Windows surface RT did quite a bit of damage also.

    Hey Jimbo,

    Don't look into my username too much, it's just a username (kinda has a ring to it). I know little about the technology nor benefits or negatives to it, besides the little that's been in the press. If you prefer you can just call me James. *Smile

    Have a good day! *Cool

    James

    P.S. Sorry for the off topic posts.

    Actually, it might benefit MS. Usually when you purchase a company, you get all their licenses, patents, etc. They can then turn around and license other companies to make stuff.

    Huh? Using a NVidia processor in the Surface RT isn't going to damage their relationship with Intel. I don't see what Windows 8 has to do with anything.

    If Microsoft became their competitor, that's a different story.
