Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD) was the target of some unusual options trading activity on Monday

It's amazing that so many options were sold when the market was closed for Memorial Day...

Research alliance builds new transistor for 5nm technology

"This announcement is the latest example of the world-class research that continues to emerge from our groundbreaking public-private partnership in New York," said Gary Patton, CTO and Head of Worldwide R&D at Globalfoundries. "As we make progress toward commercializing 7nm in 2018 at our Fab 8 manufacturing facility, we are actively pursuing next-generation technologies at 5nm and beyond to maintain technology leadership and enable our customers to produce a smaller, faster, and more cost efficient generation of semiconductors."

AMD Threadripper 1950X Trounces Core I9-7900X In Multithreading Benchmark

The Cinebench R15 benchmark is a popular tool for measuring how well CPUs cope with multithreaded compute loads. AMD's Threadripper 1950X 16 core CPU, priced at $999 according to AMD, benchmarks 41% faster in Cinebench R15 than Intel's also $999 10 core Core i9-7900X CPU. While Intel's Core i9-7900X scores 2186 points on Cinebench, AMD's Threadripper 1950X scores 3046 points. Even the cheaper 12 core $799 Threadripper 1920X is over 200 points faster in Cinebench R15 than Intel's Core i9-7900X. Intel has its own 16 core Core i9-7960X in the works, performance yet unknown, priced at $1,699, but AMD's 16 core part currently appears to be a full $700 cheaper than Intel's MSRP. It remaines to be seen who is faster in single-threaded performance -- Intel may take that crown --and what the power consumption of a fully loaded Threadripper looks like compared to its Core i9 counterpart

Amazing. A 16 core processor outperforms a 10 core processor in a multithreaded benchmark!

Who would have expected that?

What's amazing is that AMD can offer you 16 cores for the same price Intel sells10 cores for, and kick Intel's ass doing it...

...glue and all.

AMD has always been able to lower their price to improve the price/performance ratio. That's hardly something to be proud about because they had to in order to sell their product. The problem has been that they had trouble making money in the process. Will that change? We'll see.
