Financials should never really come into any thread. It doesn't matter.This is kind of why I wanted to back out of the "conversation" though.
You are way to pent up and way too serious about it. The petty bickering and such.
Gross, net, mislead. Things that shouldn't even matter in our wildest dreams, come under microscopic scrutiny. I dunno. What do you think about all this stuff?
As long as the companies aren't dying/about to lose their ability to make cards/make future architectures, discussing of who has the most money or who's making the most money isn't really relevant to any end user.
But many threads devolve into "my company has more money than your company", which indeed is stupid and irrelevant and ends up with people just bickering.
When I made my thread discussing the AMD Q1 conference call, I deliberately avoided putting any talk of financials in the OP specifically because it always results in a shitstorm.
