AMD Confirms Rumored Acquisition of Xilinx 

AMD said it is buying Xilinx for $35 billion, confirming the news leak several weeks ago. AMD made it clear that this deal is all about high performance computing (HPC): it was the headline of its announcement; it is at the top of AMD’s web site today; and it was the first thing CEO Lisa Su said (after “Good morning”) on the company’s conference call with analysts. After all the speculation about what the deal might mean, one can now be fairly confident that the main focus of AMD buying Xilinx is HPC.
