what a bunch of pap
They will lose the only competitive advantage that they have over intel.
The ability control the pricing on it's chips.
What is going to motivate these fabs to perfect the newer processes for optimal yields of AMD specific designs.
I understand GPU's getting farmed out because they are always at least a generation behind CPU's (usually) in terms of fabriaction processes. The design and fabrication of CPU's are not independant processes. Iterations of design should take into consideration the existing limitations of fabrication and adjust accordingly.
Without access to the fabs and people "on the ground" there then they will lose touch of these limitations and suffer.
