    Despite the ramblings on performance AMD has helium and general market belief that they will have very sellable products.

    Given that Zen is still speculative in that there are no motherboards and Zen chips are still very much ES stage the peformance has a lot of potential to be a special product.

    If you were brave to buy low on AMD back in the bleak times, you could fetch a nice payout today.

    The stock price seems to go up despite more "experts" touting half fall from "credible" stock analysts like Seeking Alpha.

    It's less about AMD's stock surging and more about the entire market surging.
    Thanks Trump.

    Too bad I do not have any stock at all, this one have been a good one to have. It also means they have more money or will and AMD needs it.

    I should have put the [sarcasm] banner up, they have nothing good to say about AMD ever.

    I've been seeing posts like these for weeks now (since a few days after the election, oddly enough) and nobody ever mentions market trends.
    Show me a title like this: "Amid record-breaking stock market rally, AMD passes $11 for the first time since 2007" and you'll get a thumbs up from me. AMD's stock going up is not that interesting when everyone else's stocks are going up, too.

    Otherwise looking at things in a bubble is just fanboy hype. Please don't do that.

    Nvidia stock passed 105$ as well. Its more linked to GPUs than CPUs btw.

    Nvidia went from 33$ to now 105$ over a year.
    AMD went from 3$ to now 11½$ over a year.

    Well it has to start somewhere and on the positive side Lisa Su has done well to ensure AMD's survival.

    The opinion I get here is that people don't really want AMD to survive, the expectation seem to be if they don't beat intel it is a failure, if they deliver a representative product it is not good enough, where should the line be drawn. Would Intel or Nvidia in the same postition have done any better and by exact position I mean exactly right down to the last transistor?

    I do think investor confidence is coming back and there is a solid product line that bodes well for everyone

    I bought a bunch when it was $7. Just wish I'd bought it when it was going for less than a cup of coffee. Now the trick, do I hold onto it and how long.

    I was gonna buy at 8.50 but didn't cause I am kinda broke.

    If I had stock I'd definitely hold onto the ride cause its going to go up more. How far? I dunno. But once the cash starts coming in from sales and it gets buzzy around conversation people are gonna buy and all them buyers are going to make it rise up.

    Unfortunately its like being at a casino. When you fold is up to you.

    Might have something with Intel bringing AMD on board for iGPU too.

    Mainly patent protection, but there's nothing keeping the two parties from doing more joint projects. Intel are invested in keeping Nvidia from encroaching any further into their area of hpc.

    Intel and Nvidia/AMD isn't competing in the same HPC space, its an often misunderstod case. Xeon Phi works with memory loads and data that Pascal or Fiji/Vega cant do. On the other hand Pascal and Fiji is faster at other load types.

    Xeon Phi 384GB
    P100 16GB
    Fiji 4GB
    Vega 8GB?

    I don't understand why Intel just don't buy AMD and end it all.
