As the whole world encounters financial crysis, lots of rumors about layoff have been going around. According to Digitimes, AMD may lay off an additional 10% of their global workforce of around 15,000 employees in January 2009.

Considering the gloomy ecnomic background and demand dropping in the PC market, this version sounds reasonable, but AMD now denies this rumor officially. Actually, they haven’t decided for cutting jobs.
