    Er. Wasn’t that Mass Effect teaser in another shortbread a while back?

    Frankly – I think that’s uncalled for.
    The amount of disinformation here is sometimes unbelievable. AMD is obviously not a penny stock, and my post was not intended to invite day trading, or any kind of trading for that matter. My intent was simply to point out that Intels actions appear to have backfired. Replies to my original post had further incorrect info – that AMD was /[

    When? Never with the SPARCs. Maybe you’re thinking of a 3/60?

    You could say that the “Sun” is about to set.

    How does “the day MS stops undermining standards” sound to you?

    Your information is incorrect.
    Here is a 5 day chart showing AMD, INTC and the S&P index for reference. While the whole market is up, INTC is up less than the average. AMD is up more than 3x the average, with the biggest movements coming after the INTC claim that AMD is violating the agreement.

    When you have what amounts to a penny stock, significant volatility comes with the territory. Most of that rise was before the latest dueling press releases, and can be ascribed to larger market forces.

    Stock buffing. It’s the new price fixing.

    What about Anand’s new article about SSD’s? It’s a very good article.

    • khands

    It’s all a stock buffing scheme developed by both companies? I’ll say yes when it’s settled for pennies out of court.

    Nvidia semi-officially named the MCP82 XE as well. If you go to NV’s download section and choose ‘nforce drivers’, the default option is a new ‘nForce 9 family’, and the only member is the ‘Nvidia nForce 980a’.

    Looks like the publicity is working both ways, Intel’s up 17% in the last 10 days.

    When will this “Opera chief” finally shut it?

    Looks like the whole cross license deal backfired on Intel. AMD shot up 20% over the last 5 days – analysts are saying Intels actions indicate they consider AMD’s new setup to be a real threat, drawing the attention of investors!
