AMD is in the Green again
Okay, that sounded a little narly. But good news for AMD as they have managed to achieve a net income of $48 million on revenue of $1.46 billion, this would be the company's first profit since Q2 2012. A good chunk of profit came from a sale-and-leaseback operation of AMD's Singapore facility that netted the company $22 million.
Non-GAAP net income came in at $31 million. AMD's computing solutions (aka processors) sales fell from $841 million to $790 million versus the previous quarter, while graphics and visual solutions revenue soared from $320 million to $671 million in the same timeframe. The large increase in GPU sales is thanks to AMD's deals with Microsoft and Sony for the next-gen consoles, AMD stated that that sales of GPUs for PCs fell sequentially and year-over-year.
