AMD Reports $403 Million Net Loss, Plans Increase in R&D Spending in 2015

Without a doubt, 2014 was a tough year for AMD. Although the company managed a 4% increase in revenue to $551 billion, the company reported a net loss of $403 million for the year thanks to a $364 million net loss reported in the 4th quarter.

As expected, AMD’s computing and graphics division is primarily to blame for the company’s troubles. Segment revenue here is down 15% sequentially and 16% from 2013. Seeing as AMD hasn’t made any significant CPU or GPU announcements for most of this year, this is not surprising. On the other hand, AMD’s enterprise, embedded and semi-custom division helped slow the bleed with annual revenue climbing 51% in [...]

Supporting this theory is a recent announcement by AMD SVP and CFO, Devinder Kumar, who announced at a technology [...]
