    Spelling in paragraph 4? "AMD has agreed to pay" and "for every wafer it purchases"

    This seems crazy to me, company struggling as is agrees to pay the equivalent of 1/3rd of its remaining cash balance sheet for what ? Some technology helping in 7nm which lets be honest even Intel won't launch by 2020.

    Is this one last throw of the dice or something else.

    Spelling mistake in 2nd paragraph. However is incorrect.

    Howver, that same year AMD would renegotiate again following weaker-than-expected demand for APUs, paying $320 million for wafers it had agreed to purchase but now no longer needed.

    I wonder if Global Foundries is making any money or if they're also bleeding cash.... it not cheap building a fab to then be under-used because your main customer has weak demand for its products....
