Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) was in shambles six years ago. Its processors were massive failures when compared to what Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) was offering, leaving AMD with almost no market share in the server space and a failed personal computer chip business. Its Bulldozer-based FX-8150 processor, for example, was reportedly 40% to 50% slower than Intel's comparable offering at that time.
