AMD Revenue Steady, Earnings Up

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) this afternoon posted Q3 revenue of $1.62 billion, about in line with the Street consensus at $1.61 billion. The company posted non-GAAP profits of 15 cents a share, well ahead of the Street at 6 cents.

AMD also said it expects Q4 revenue to be sequentially flat with the third quarter. That would imply $1.62 billion; the Street has been forecasting $1.67 billion.

On a GAAP basis, the company lost $118 million, or 17 cents a share.
