AMD CEO has talked about the direction that the company is going to take. AMD has released the 12nm based CPUs which is a major achievement for the company keeping in mind that Intel is having issues with the 10nm process and those chips won’t be coming to market before 2020.
Keeping that in mind AMD CEO Lisa Su mentioned that this is only the beginning and that the AM4 platform will be relevant till 2020. This is great news for people that already own an AM4 motherboard. The following is what she had to say in this regard:
The Raven Ridge/Ryzen Mobile design was sort of like the first step, but we are nowhere near done with everything that can be done, so you are going to see that power profile get better and better as new systems come out. So yes, I am very optimistic about the whole, like I said, I am simply amazed with some of the things that you can do, or we can do with in partnership with the OEMs.
AMD is committed to providing value to the user and not only has AMD released the 12nm chips but has also promised that 7nm chips will be ready before the end of the year. That is something that we are interested in seeing.
AMD is also moving Vega to 7nm as well and AMD Navi is based on the same node so will be interesting to see what kind of performance these upcoming CPUs and GPUs will have to offer.
Let us know what you think of the induction of AMD CEO Lisa Su into the National Academy of engineering and whether or not you think she is taking the company in the right direction.
