    I wonder how the US government will make sure to secure their interests with such deals.

    GJ AMD! Might prove crucial in 2019.

    Be weary though - because there is no exact time frame in which they can expect this 300M.
    Heh... cant remember the last time they had good financial dealings news to share :)

    Considering Xbone/PS4 royalties, I can only imagine Chinese royalties!

    :funny:

    They need any and every deal they can get in my opinion, Otherwise how else can they compete with a Giant like Intel, I say take it and keep-on-truckin! I still have some of my Amd Fan-boy left in me, part of me wants them to bounce back so they can fix some price issues that Intel has been exploiting lately. Not that Amd wouldnt do the same.Still waiting on that Zen.

    Only $293 million and a fast developing nation of only about ~1.4b people

    Too bad for AMD, once the Chinese do the only thing they do best (reverse engineer everything Western, copy, steal) AMD will be out cold. AMD is even more desperate than I imagined. Creating stuff directly for a communist government. Aren't there laws against that in the US? By the way, USD $293?!

    If there aren't there should be. I'm actually surprised AMD are allowed to do this. Intel was blocked from shipping a metric ton of processors to one of the supercomputer labs in China, yet AMD is allowed to do this... wat.

    It's not as if China couldn't just buy the processors from a different country anyway. This goes for any AMD or Intel CPU. I think the report may not reflect the truth 100 percent though, I like to point out this quote from the article:
    AMD can't actually give China the design for such a CPU, simply because they do not own x86. In fact, it can't even be 64-bit only, because x64 is based on x86 intellectual property. It's just like if Intel were to do this, it could only be 32-bit or IA64, it can't be x64 since that is owned by AMD. Sounds like the Chinese government can't buy off the shelf either due to the extra 'stuff' they want on the chip. The chip will likely therefore be server Zen based with the Chinese stuff added to the CPU die, but manufactured by thy foundries used by AMD.
