Hi Guys... I've been wondering a few things.

It seems like AMD dominates in the graphics, but lacks in the processors? What do you guys think of the latest announcement about layoffs?

I'm curious. AMD is a giant. I remember going to CompUSA years ago (around 2001-2003) and buying the latest ATI Radeon graphics. Radeon is still the best graphics.

Not surprised, all companies go through layoffs, it streamlines the business and cuts out waste, so instead of having 2 people doing either the same job or a small part of one job, you have one person doing the whole thing. It makes for a bit more work for those people though, but they learn to adjust. All depends on how good the CEO actually is as well as how fast they can push out Piledriver revisions and Steamroller.
