We at SemiAccurate would like to thank AMD for such a generous offer. AMD did not have to pay an external firm to do this, nor did the firm have to set up calls with such high profile companies like they did. For the now extremely motivated ex-AMD employees, it is an opportunity to continue work in the semiconductor Sales and Marketing field, likely with many of the same clients and co-workers as before. This is in no uncertain terms a win/win/win.S|A
