Tuesday posted a profit for the fourth quarter, as the chip maker reported improved revenue reflecting the launch of new gaming consoles despite continued drop in personal computer sales. Nonetheless, shares of AMD plummeted nine percent in after hours after detailing a weak outlook for the next quarter.
Advanced Micro Devices has reported a profit for the fourth quarter, thanks largely to the sale of its chips in the latest game consoles from Microsoft and Sony. AMD’s forecast for the current quarter seemed to disappoint, however, and investors pushed its shares 10 percent lower after the results came out. The chip maker’s profit for the quarter ended Dec. 28 was US$89 million, compared to a loss of $473 million a year earlier, AMD announced Tuesday. It was its second profitable quarter in a row after a string of losses.
