AMD's Radeon saddled benefits

AMD has posted mixed financial results for the second quarter of 2011. While the challenger to Intel's success in selling a record number of CPU, its sales and earnings are down from last year. Blame it on the graphics division, which displays an operating loss. The turnover of the branch CPU is stable over the year (1.207 billion dollars against 1.212 billion in the second quarter of 2010) and operating profit was up ($ 142 million against 128 million last year ).

AMD has seen its sales of processors for notebook PCs increased - thanks to the success of its APU and the Brazos platform - which offset lower sales of CPUs for desktop PCs and servers. Branch graphics displays her down a CA (367 million against $ 440 million in 2010) and a loss of $ 7 million.

This is a loss in volume, indicating that the AMD average selling price remained stable. Overall, AMD still finished the quarter on sales of 1.507 billion and net income of $ 61 million, while the company was still in the red a year ago.
