Windows 7: Rumour Mill AMD to stop making CPU's

Rumour Mill AMD to stop making CPU's

There are rumours circulating saying that AMD is to stop making desktop CPU's and concentrate on APU chips for computers and consoles etc.

AMD to drop FX CPUs, move to APUs, suggests leaked slide |

Whilst the Intel guys may think so what this if true (which I don't think it is) it will mean with no competition innovation will stagnate and prices will most likely rise.
Lets look at some logical reasons why this is not happening.
First of all the 9000 CPU's are on sale with cooling kits for reasonable money. The suppliers want to get rid of them in the Christmas and New Year rush.
The FX regular chips are at really good prices with the 2 8 core chips at $199 and I have seen the 8320 at $149 for a day or so. Chip prices wander up and down but the FX 8350 seems to sit at $199 most of the time.
I have an Asus Sabertooth motherboard with another one on the way and I have updated the bios to the latest version released. Version 2013 released 11/23/2013. All the CPU's on the market were currently supported in any case and this latest release states "Supports new CPU's". What new CPU's? An FX II series based on the latest tech? Would not surprise me on bit. Tech companies have a habit of releasing CPU's after the new year once all the older models have sold out.
That is my 2 pence, cents and so on. I am often right about some of these things too.
