Ruiz tells shareholders

Hector Ruiz, AMD's chairman told the company's annual shareholder meeting that its new Barcelona technology will save the company.

Ruiz admitted that AMD was two or three quarters behind the larger Intel in improving manufacturing capabilities and would not manage 45nm production until mid-2008.He also confessed that the company's financial performance was disaster.
