    WSA continues to be the albatross around the neck of AMD. Having said that if Zen is even moderately successful and increases sales it should swing them to a profit.

    2017 is undoubtedly the make or break year for AMD and it all hinges on Zen. Q1 2017 is going to be very, very interesting indeed.

    But we've seen so many "make or break" years come and go! Even if losses were a billion, it would still be a shock to me if AMD was to shut down next year.

    Im waiting for Zen and Vega. Going to possibly be a very expensive 2017 for me.

    I genuinely see Zen being in my next build, it might not be the absolute top end but it looks to give great performance at hopefully a reasonable price.

    By far their biggest next year in a long while, at least for CPUs. They haven't had new CPUs since 2012/2013? That's 4-5 years. It's meant that their CPUs aren't even remotely competitive with Intel, so they're making next to nothing. Graphics cards were also not updated since the 7XXX series, just rebrands up until Polaris.

    So you are ignoring Kaveri, Carrizo and Jaguar on the CPU front, and which 7xxx series are 260X, 285 and Fury rebrands of?

    Sure AMD didn't put those CPU cores into the products that we as enthusiasts want, ie CPUs with lots of L3 cache to make them gaming friendly, and for that someone surely deserves to be fired. I hope that their focus on laptop chips at least got them a few laptop sales.

    They got at least three from my household

    The 260X was a 7790 rebrand

    OTOH, the 240, 250, 290 and 290X were also new cards, along with the 285 and the Fury. But other than those six, they were all rebrands

    lol, so it was. Released very late in the 7xxx series lifetime, can't say I'm surprised I forgot about it.

    Charlie has an interesting take on AMD's results: http://semiaccurate.com/2016/10/24/a...ets-stage-zen/
