AMD (NASDAQ:AMD 69.4 16.50%) has emerged as the biggest winner from Intel’s (NASDAQ:INTC 50.625 -16.18%) massive cock-up yesterday, further cementing its status of a rising challenger. As an illustration, AMD shares are up 16.27 percent, trading at $69.26 price level, as of 14:50 ET. Should AMD manage to close near this point, it will have formed a fresh all-time high.
So, how did AMD receive such a boost? The saga began yesterday when Intel revealed as part of its Q2 2020 earnings:
“The company's 7nm-based CPU product timing is shifting approximately six months relative to prior expectations. The primary driver is the yield of Intel's 7nm process, which based on recent data, is now trending approximately twelve months behind the company's internal target.”
AMD shares are on track for a new all-time high on the back of the announcement by Intel yesterday of a delay in its 7nm products
Damn, Intel keeps failing on those nodes. I mean, we all know those CPUs will be really fast, but damn.
