AMD is feeling the hurt, partially due to their acquisition of ATI, as they post a larger-than-expected loss for the last quarter. Today, the company posted a loss of $611 million, in stark contrast to their profit of $184.5 million from the previous quarter. This was more than double what was expected by some analysts:
Excluding special items, AMD was expected to have lost $258.1 million, or 47 cents per share, on revenue of $1.23 billion, according to the average analyst forecast on Reuters Estimates.
Doubtless, increased pressure from Intel in many areas as well as pressure from Nvdia has contributed to this loss. Hopefully, we'll see them make a turnaround soon. Will R600 and the next gen Athlons be able to save the day?
