I really hope this doesn't happen. Without a competitor for Nvidia in the desktop graphics department, things won't go well...

You could kinda say this about other companies too.

I think that Apple might buy AMD.

Wouldn't surprise me to be honest seeing as their CPU's are lagging way way behind and their whole company is seen as "The budget corner" and Nvidia having over 76% market share isn't helping them either.

Their new products need to sell seriously well for them to not go down the bankruptcy route.

Apparently Samsung were looking at buying AMD.

IMO Nvidia does put FUD out about AMD too.

There are way too many Fan boys/girls out there

They won't go bankrupt.

Before bankrupcy is even a option someone will 'lend' them a hand so to speak whether its buying into the company or providing massive injection of funds!

Very true but as an owner of both AMD and Nvidia hardware I've not been "wowed" by AMD since the 4870 came out in 2009.

Won't happen. If AMD partner up with another company or change their name in any way, Intel have the chance to sue the holy hell out of AMD due to the termination of the Cross license policy in place between them. without that agreement in place, they can fight over patents and technology. At the moment its a kind of mutual forgiveness.

same applies if Intel sold up or changed their name, AMD have the right if they wanted to sue Intel on patent infringement etc. This is why AMD are a bit stuck in what to do, and why Samsung were interested but never got in on the action.

The only thing they can do is what MrKambo suggests and accept injected funds with promise of some kind of return.
