Expecting headlines to be accurate is a fool's errand...
Be glad it actually said AMD.
It's bad enough that the article writers often erroneously summarize, but
a still different person writes the headline. Back in print days, the
headline had to "look nice".. Today, it's probably more about SEO to drive
traffic. But both lead to interesting headlines that don't necessarily
reflect the content of the article.
