Why should AMD move to China 100%?

US government only likes INTEL, its procurement specifies INTEL brand, in other words, US government explicitly excludes AMD(and others). US FTC ignores AMD's complaints, DOJ silently endorses INTEL's monopolistic actions by doing nothing to stop it. AMD is fighting for its survival. This is the situation 3 years after the introduction of Opteron and AMD64.

AMD should sue US government for illegally excluding AMD.

US government has large deficit and huge debt, it's on the brink of bankruptcy.

China has an annual trade surplus of $200 billion with the US. China has a foreign reserve of $800 billion. Chinese may not be rich, but their government is well managed financially and has mega tons of money and they spend lavishly on hi-tech gear.

If AMD moves 100% to China, its revenue will jump $1 billion instantly. Chinese government will immediately specify AMD brand for all government purchases, INTEL will be excluded in China

*) The millions of Chinese government employees will buy 2P dual core Opteron workstations

*) The 3 million strength People's Liberation Army will only buy AMD64 and say no to INTEL 32 bit or EM64T copycat, millions of Opterons there. 10x more purchasing power than any Google.

*) All Chinese schools and universities will buy AMD64 only. That's huge.

*) All those countries which don't like America (such as most Europeans) will buy more AMD and spit at the American bully INTEL.

*) Once US found China's AMD performs better than INTEL, it will dump INTEL too.

*) If US government continues to exclude AMD, then a China based AMD can invoke WTO rules to demand fair trade.

*) ..................................

The world will be a better place, as we move to pervasive 64bit computing.

What is best for AMD is not necessarily what is best for the US, or Taiwan.

Perhaps a FAB in mainland China is what you really mean - it could fill the mainland Chinese needs for cpu's.

AMD is a multinational, it could move it's HQ to wherever. Sadly, the US government would never consider exclusively using such a product not under's its geographical control, the German plants may well be one reason that Intel has the US military and other government monopolies.

Actually, AMD moves to China will be better for US in the long run. Finally, when US military folks find their INTEL CPUs slower than PLA's AMD CPUs, they will upgrade to AMD64 too. That will be progress for US to walk out the dark age of 32 bit computing, don't you agree?

So, it is not Ok for the U.S. gov to stick to Intel but it is Ok for the chinese gov to stick to AMD and ban Intel?

So, should AMD go to China to become a monopoly there?

Then it will follow the same path of Intel towards its demise.

Let's see if you are as good to realize about your mistakes as you are about detecting Intel's

Eddie, sometimes you have to take extreme measures to battle evil, just like there are death penalties for murders. Some say death penality is also murder, most say it's justice. If the democratic and freedom touting US government is sponsoring INTEL monopoly using tax payer money 3 years after the launch of AMD64, how could you accuse China doing something similar by sponsoring AMD64? At least, AMD64 is 5 generations ahead, and represents progress.

Just so you know, the U.S. government has already declared bankruptcy in the past.
Legally, it is now a corporation.

It is apparent that your opinions are not made from a basic understanding of freedom.

While it appears to be true, that the US Government has broken its own law by naming the INTEL brand, there is a still a very fundamental point your missing.

That is, that in America, we have the right of wistle blowing. That we can call them on their mistake. That we can ask the courts to force this practice to end. And if the court agrees, it will be done.

Try that in China.

Hey, China doesn't have that AMD exclusion problem to begin with, it's fair from the beginning...I bet if China excluded AMD or INTEL, US government would jump up...

Now, let's ask why US government uniformly decided to exclude AMD.

When talking about freedom in china, someone better do his homework. People in different country just think differently. Thinking about what the american do on iraq (killing so many innocent civilians), do those american really take care other people's human right? Now iraq really become a 'better and peace' place in the world.
