AMD has a 10-15 yr(?) cross-licensing agreement with Intel regarding the x86 architecture patents. It's going to be another interesting legal slugfest if Samsung (or any other company) were to show interest in buying out AMD.
Just speculating here, but what could keep Apple from gobbling up AMD with all it`s huge financial resources, if AMD indeed goes up for sale, and manufacturing it`s own Processors (among other things)?
(edit for clarity)
