Evidence that MSFT is really buying AMD?

Wasn't the whole point of Zen to be a sort of architecture convergence? Proper integration of CPU with the ATI GPUs AMD bought... and with the CPU being either an x64 or high-end ARM part with packages pin compatible regardless of CPU architecture. Presumably it was that broad strategy which made Jim "k7k8A4A5" Keller the *perfect* choice for running the show.

If the Wintel Corp., really is sniffing about AMD, it'll presumably be in a desperate bid to crush the ARM in the server/desktop aspect... obviously abhorrent to both the Win' and the 'tel... Hence JK's been completely wasting his time these last few years.

A tenner on AMD's high end ARM chips... and AMD... both being gone (the way of Nokia) within two years.
