    The loss is actually have been down to other factors:

    The revenues has actually been flat,but the main reason there was a loss was due to a $209 million write-off related to Global Foundries and a $98 million loss due to the restructuring.

    Edit!!

    Wrong AMD article linked to in OP! Those are results for Q4 2009.

    It was still a net profit over the full year which makes a change for amd as during the good times when the rest of the world still had money they were loosing it hand over fist for something like 3-4 years in a row if my memory serves me right to the point they were running out of reserves yet managed to buy out ati with what was left.
    In the current financial climate any company that makes money over a year should be well received by investors and not slated (like google recently was) for not making as much as someone outside of the company 'predicted' they would make.
    These outsiders make me feel almost as sick as pointless patents and there lawyers.

    i'd say they were also down due to people waiting for the mainstream new gpu's, i know i've held off waiting to see what the 7850 & 7870 come out at in both cost & performance.
