I understand AMD still has a lot of cash in the bank, but must be flushing it down the toilet at a furious rate. It seems the next CPU release date has been pushed back until whenever. Unless they have double the performance (and have less TDP) than the current crop of disappointments, I think the liquidators will be called in. I worked for a company that had clusters of Opterons all over the world, but they switched to Xeons years ago. I doubt the profits from the ex-ATI GPU division can keep the rest of the floundering beast above water.
