So you say.
Or a rodent.

Agh! My secret is finally out. All these years I've been faking it by knowing sort of knowing who Pikachu is. But you know what, it actually feels good to be honest. You're right. I have never played pokemon.
I had the Plug and Play game for my TV a while back lol
Pardon the temporary Pokemon interruption but here's some more light reading on the stakes of Zen (and Polaris). Just a 5 part series this time. AMD has been on the ropes for a long time and is promising to be able to really go toe-to-toe with Intel and nvidia. If they're over-promising what the tech is capable of, I'm not sure their current businesses can keep them together. I think they could end up getting sold for parts.
But.. if Zen/Polaris/(and even the new FX) live up to the specs, you will see a return of team Red
We haven't seen a tech company that has (had?) a tech presence like AMD die out. I'd be worried for users where their support may end for their products. It could be quite wonkey tbh.
I assume you meant "won't" from context. But I wasn't imagining a death so much as their various businesses getting sold to different companies. Intel is already licensing some AMD tech, and they could use some help in onboard graphics. MS and sony both use AMD in consoles. Any of the big ARM companies might be tempted to buy AMD to expand into x86 and limit their exposure to Intel's Atom/core m in mobile at the very least, but perhaps also to expand their chromebook options. The link above lists several other non-consumer businesses which might have different buyers. I think if AMD does face a sale, they won't stay intact.
