AMD had a profit largely because of the two consoles released in November. Their PC chip sales however are slumping

Gaming yes, but they said their majority of PC sales were in laptop chips. I have only played WOW on a laptop, and would not consider playing any other game on a laptop

Wii U sales are poor, therefore console gaming is in decline. Am I doing this right?

AMD is just getting annihilated by nvidia/Intel when it comes to PC gaming, and AMD does not represent PC gaming.

yeah i use intel cpu's in my builds. but i do use amd gpus, i would use nvidia ones if the price/performance metric were equal.

It's the CPUs that are slumping, seems like the GPUs are doing fine (thank you cryptocurrency)
