[softpedia] AMD Not Competing with Intel Anymore, Goes Mobile - Page 9  

post #81 of 349
This is just very broad speculation, probably to get us to read the article. AMD's rep didn't specifically say they're getting out of the desktop PC market. Seems like from the original source, MerceryNews, AMD is expanding it's horizons. More like ARM/AMD than just AMD on x86. ARM being a huge challenger to Intel, I can see why AMD would go this direction. It's more of a foresighted move by AMD.

We might be seeing less innovation in the CPU market in the future. Intel now has even more flexibility to explore other technologies and enter new markets. I suppose that is the good and bad of this situation in terms of evolution.

Yeah this is being taken too literally I think. I think the current architecture may be the last one they do, but I still expect them to release Piledriver, Steamroller and Excavator. The bulldozer design is scalable, so they'll probably just continue to add more cores with slight increases to IPC.

Dropping out of the market entirely is a little extreme, and I don't think that's what this PR guy is saying. Less money invested into R&D for the desktop platform is likely what he meant.

Really he didn't say anything that the new CEO for AMD hasn't publicly said already...he has also made statements that AMD will be focusing on mobile technologies.

Am I the only one excited? Hopefully AMD can come out with a tablet we can play Battlefield 3 on by combining their ARM development and graphics (although I don't know entirely how ARM works).

All I know is with their focus in making "Fusion" happening, I can see this happening in our lifetime, maybe in less than 5 years.

Interesting thought, but I doubt it.

Meanwhile, I'll root for AMD's new strategy to go well.

Regardless, it simply won't be a competitive market. AMD just hasn't released anything to rival the performance of Intel chips, and if they're going to be spending even less time on such development, then there is going to be little push. At least in the GPU arena, there is a fair back and forth between Nvidia and ATI/AMD.

Everyone should just calm down their horses ...

I didn't read anywhere that AMD was leaving the high end chip manufacturing.

What they say is that, it can't be all about AMD vs Intel. They need to get their hands in other business opportunities, in this case, mobile opportunities.

They don't say they are going to a 180º change but instead, that they need to open up their business horizons.

Let's face it... for a company like AMD they need to touch in several markets to get some profit up. All they did until now was trying to battle against Intel and that was their moto ...

... and the wrong one, that led them to where they are today.

So, from everything i've read, i didn't understand that they were leaving the desktop industry but, spreading their focus into other markets.
That's my 2 cents smile.gif
