Director Sales- EMEA Component Channel at AMD, Neil Spicer, talked about the condition of the company and where AMD stands. In an interview, he also stated that the need for high-performance processing power will increase in the upcoming years and that will benefit the company in the future.
Applications are becoming more demanding as the days pass and that is where AMD comes in, AMD is the only company that is in a position to provide both processors and graphics cards to professional and gaming markets and that is a huge plus point.
AMD has been in the business for 50 years now and Ryzen has been a game changer for the company. Ryzen has been able to get AMD 40% market share and with the chips coming to laptops, that number is only going to rise.
Neil Spicer also talked about the fact that even though mobile and desktops can be categorized into one category both have different demands and that they need to focus on different elements when dealing with the two.
