AMD better know that were praying for it!
there not the only possiblilty , what about the likes of IBM i read some crap back in jan speculating about this they spend loads on R&D and develop CPus themselves

would microsoft even be able to buy AMD cos that could cause some serious conflicts of interest to do with unfair compettition
