AMD's revenue for the second quarter is expected to be $1.21 billion a 52 percent increase compared with the same period last year. However, it is lower than the $1.3 billion revenue target predicted by analysts.

Some analysts had fretted about AMD's performance in the face of a price war on Intel's part, as the larger chip company desperately tried to cut inventory ahead of the launch of its new Core architecture chips.
