AMD has reported a smaller-than-expected loss for the third quarter, and said it saw growth in unit shipments for its microprocessors and graphics chips.

The company reported a net loss of $128m, or 18 cents a share, on revenue of $1.4bn for the quarter ended on 30 September. The quarter was helped by a net gain of $54m, or eight cents a share, due to the repurchase of debt. AMD's operating loss was $77m. Wall Street was expecting a loss of 42 cents a share on revenue of $1.26bn, according to Thomson Reuters.

In terms of outlook, AMD said fourth quarter would be "up modestly".
