AMD just recently reported 4th quarter revenues that went beyond Wall Street expectations, however assisted for a 10% decrease in year-over-year sales in the present quarter.

The semiconductor sector has actually been coming to grips with lower customer need for ended up electronic devices and excess of parts required to make PCs and servers.
