Though the idea that AMD would be acquired by any company is nothing less than a wild notion, word today is that one of the larger companies in just such a position may make such a move. Or make an attempt, anyway. Word from Korea today is that Samsung may have the clout - and the cash - to buy out AMD. Not to dismantle them, by any means, but to assimilate them into their own unit. What a monster that'd end up being.
