Submission + - AMD: what went wrong? (

Barence writes: "In 2006, AMD could seemingly do no wrong. Its processors were the fastest in the PC market, annual revenue was up a record 91%, expansion into the graphics game had begun with the high-profile acquisition of ATI, and it was making exciting plans for a future where it looked like it could “smash Intel’s chip monopoly” for good. Now the company is fighting for its very survival. How did AMD end up surrendering such a advantageous position – and was it given an unfair shove on the way down? PC Pro has plotted AMD's demise, including the botched processor launches, the anti-competitive attacks from Intel and years of boardroom unrest."
