SAN FRANCISCO -- Advanced Micro Devices Inc. said yesterday that it would buy Canadian graphics chip-maker ATI Technologies Inc. in a $5.4 billion deal designed to press recent gains against industry goliath Intel Corp. The move expands AMD's offerings beyond the microprocessors that run computers to include a range of ancillary technologies that will enable the Sunnyvale, Calif., company to sell what are called computing platforms - basically, integrated systems that make computers better at such specialized tasks as playing games, editing video or surfing the Internet wirelessly.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Advanced Micro Devices Inc., Intel Corp.'s biggest rival in the market for computer processors, said yesterday that its second-quarter sales and profit missed forecasts because demand slumped and chip prices dropped. The company's shares sank 18 percent after it said sales fell 17 percent from the previous period to $985 million, instead of the 10 percent drop predicted in April. Profit was 3 cents to 5 cents a share, far less than the 27-cent average analyst estimate.

I cannot take statin-type drugs. Is there a natural way to get triglycerides down? Triglycerides have just been shown to increase the risk of heart attacks (Journal of the American Medical Association, July 18). Fish oil is a natural way to lower this risk factor for heart disease. I have been fascinated with letters from people reporting that Lipitor weakened their muscles. I believe Lipitor triggered my ALS. Until last month, my doctors wouldn't listen to me, but then a report from the World Health Organization showed a link.

I have an IBM PC with an AMD 333 processor. I installed a DVD-ROM drive that called for system requirements of a Pentium 350 or above. It worked fine for a while, but now when I put a CD in my computer, it locks up. How can I fix my problem? You clearly stepped over the line by purchasing a drive that requires the speed of a 350-megahertz Pentium chip to handle the required data transfers. Your solution is dangerous and requires you to step over another line. I don't know if it is worth it. In brief, you can force your AMD chip to move data faster than its design is supposed to permit by using a dangerous technique known as "overclocking."

SAN FRANCISCO -- When Intel Corp. chief executive Paul S. Otellini takes the stage here today to kick off his company's conference for developers and partners, he'll talk about Intel's forthcoming "quad core" semiconductors with four separate processing engines. He'll discuss his company's plans for more power-efficient chips - the rallying cry for the semiconductor industry these days. He'll probably give up some new details about Intel's strategies for wireless networking, home entertainment and health care.

SAN FRANCISCO -- One of the most lucrative monopolies in American industry was finally broken last week when Advanced Micro Devices formally rolled out its long-awaited clone of Intel's 386 microprocessor, a computer-on-a-chip that forms the brain inside many popular personal computers.But the AMD 386, which remains the focus of a bitter legal battle between AMD and Intel, is expected to capture only a small fraction of the PC microprocessor market. Major personal computer vendors are reluctant to risk alienating Intel by buying the AMD chip, and Intel will soon fight back with cheaper and faster versions of its more advanced 486 microprocessor.

Sunnyvale, Calif. -- Advanced Micro Devices Inc. said it expects third-quarter sales and earnings to fall from the previous quarter because of big price cuts on a chip used in personal computers.The semiconductor company shipped the same number of AM486 microprocessors as in the previous quarter, although at "sharply lower prices," it said in a statement yesterday.The slowdown in revenue growth from the AM486 chip probably will continue through the year until Advanced Micro starts shipping a more powerful chip in 1996, the company said.

What has happened to my shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc.? The bottom has fallen out. - K.V., via the Internet Babe Ruth, the legend goes, once pointed to the bleachers before slamming a home run. Joe Namath guaranteed a Super Bowl victory. Both athletes delivered. Investors in the big chip maker are waiting to see whether such bravado can succeed in semiconductors as well. "There's no reason why" Advanced Micro Devices can't have 40 percent of the global server market by 2009, AMD Commercial Vice President Marty Seyer recently declared.

Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices Inc. hopes to one-up industry giant Intel Corp. with its new 64-bit microprocessor for PCs. Introduced yesterday, the Athlon 64 is the first 64-bit chip used in desktop computers running Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system. AMD, whose chips power about 17 percent of the world's Windows-based PCs, expects the Athlon 64 to be a must-have for speed-hungry game players and to usher in the next generation of super-fast microprocessors. "We're on top of the mountain with a snowball," said Rich Heye, vice president of AMD's microprocessor unit, "and we're going to drop it."
