AMD to sell its consumer division?

Posted on Saturday, May 10 2008 @ 00:05:31 CEST by

FUD Zilla claims AMD is trying to find a buyer for its consumer division:
We’ve heard a rumor that AMD is trying to sell off its consumer division, and currently the big issue is that it's tough to sell it and keep some important intellectual property that the company uses to make these chips.

AMD got this division with ATI and in the last few quarters it took a nasty beating, mainly due to bad performance of their key clients. ATI’s biggest customer for handhelds was Motorola, and as this mobile maker is down on its knees it also put AMD in a nasty position. If Motorola comes back, so will AMD’s consumer division.

The second key customer for Xilleon chips is Sony for its Bravia TVs, and as far as we know Sony is doing fine with its TVs.
Last quarter AMD's consumer division posted a loss of $8 million on a revenue of $81 million.
