AMD reported third quarter 2007 revenue of $1.632 billion a 23 percent improvement compared to the third quarter of 2006.AMD reported an operating loss of $226 million, and a net loss of $396 million, or $0.71 per share.

Third quarter 2007 gross margin was 41 percent, compared to 33 percent in the second quarter of 2007 and 51 percent in the third quarter of 2006.
