AMD shares dip 13 percent on revised forecast

Written by


32nm transition issues cost shareholders dearly
AMD shares dipped 13 percent after the chipmaker cut its quarterly forecast on Thursday.

The pessimistic forecast sees AMD failing to meet its growth target in Q3 due to poor 32nm yields and ramp issues faced by the Globalfoundries fab in Dresden.

Although analysts agree demand for 32nm Llano APUs is healthy, AMD is simply falling behind schedule due to production difficulties. Sadly, while other companies are slashing forecasts as a result of poor demand, AMD finds itself in the awkward position of being unable to meet demand.

It is unclear whether the issues will in any way affect the introduction of upcoming Llano SKUs, although this doesn’t seem very likely at this point. AMD is working closely with Globalfoundries to improve yields and claims to be making headway.

No need to panic. It's better to have high demand and low yields than low demand and high yields. Hopefully Globalfoundries will sort things out soon.

Hopefully Bulldozer's launch will change this. By Q1 2012, AMD shouldn't have a problem getting as many 32m parts as possible.

digitimes within the same story:
"Meanwhile, AMD's server processor codenamed Interlagos will also have difficulty shipping on schedule and is expected to be delayed to November."

I was expecting the same thing. Then again, it wouldn't surprise me if every comment so far has 30+ down-votes by days end...

Banned a bunch of them and that's just the start, more will follow.

There will be no rules, there will be no warnings - it's up to everyone to think twice before they start acting like dicks.

Man.. financial sector confuses me. AMD's share fell because its growing, but just less which is good in this economy. Speaking of which I notice that A8-3850 has been sold out on newegg for over a month now, gloflo needs to pick up the pace :o

Thank you for doing something about them, maybe the comments will be relevant to the stories with real discussion.

Actually, both scenarios are leveled, and not good. In the first there's not a lot to sell so yield loses aren't recovered by large sales, in the 2nd there are not many clients to sell to so the production costs involved in achieving that high yield land as loses.


The bad part is that people still see this as an AMD issue and not a GF/TSMC one.
