Over the past fortnight, the company has seen several leaps. It finally seems like there is some stability in chip prices. The grapevine also has it that the new versions of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox gaming consoles will be outfitted with the Advanced Micro Devices. This news has been bait for investors who were previously bearish, to finally climb onto the bandwagon and it seems like a rebound is on the cards. Though the path looks like its clearing, AMD still has quite a run to make to lodge itself in a niche in the mobile and cloud computing markets. Nevertheless, its rise over the past few days has been a ray of sunlight for shareholders after a long period of overcast weather.
