AMD new official roadmap on February 2nd

Written by Fuad Abazovic



Financial Analyst Day 2012


Rory Read is currently one of the biggest riddles in the industry. AMD’s new CEO has already cut several head in AMD’s sleepy organisation and he apparently wants to make some big changes.

Read wants AMD to become more competitive, bring the roadmap on track and make money. Of course, this is what every exec wants to achieve, but it seems Read is wasting no time in taking some drastic measures. 

He will officially reveal the new plans on February 2, when AMD is scheduled to host Financial Analyst Day. This is the day AMD needs to reveal what happens with Krishna and other 28nm Fusion parts, what gets cancelled, what gets replaced and what comes when.

It probably won’t go into many details, but it will give us a hint at AMD future plans and what to expect in 2012 and 2013. This is something that financial and press communities need, in order to realize in which direction this ship is sailing.

Rory Read has been awfully quite since the day he was appointed CEO, and we know very little about his plans at this point. We did hear that some partners think that he is a man of action, but others are skeptical of his ability to pull this off. We will see some new things at CES but we expect to see the full roadmap on February 2nd, mid of Chinese New Year 2012, the year of Dragon, three years after AMD introduced its Dragon gaming platform.

"Rory Read has been awfully quite"

You too Fuad? :sigh: It's an epidemic.

"quiet"

AMD needs to focus on significantly increasing instructions per clock cycle by at least 100% and reducing power consumption by at least 60%. I wonder if that's what their new roadmap is going to reflect?

The one that grinds me is when dummies spell 'loose' when they mean 'lose'

@dicobalt - You said it perfectly! Also, add to that better GPU drivers. Roadmap should say we've hired 100 well qualified engineers to make our lousy products work, then I'll be happy! lol

What are you talking about? There's nothing wrong with LIano and the upcoming LIano replacements that will use Piledriver Cores. Rory Read is a fighter, just look at what he did prior to becoming CEO of AMD. He was Lenovo's President and COO, he was also responsible for the assistance in turning Lenovo right around into profitability making the competition shake in there boots.

If I were Intel, I would be worried because AMD can compete in Price/Performance, where as Intel cannot so easily compete this way. ;-)

A $209 8 core Bulldozer that can't outperform a $219 4 core 2500K isn't exactly what I would call price/performance competition. Not to mention the fact that the Bulldozer is a massive energy hog when it's under load.

@dicobalt - You're the only guy taking sense. All these other bastard AMD [censored]ers are either their PR team or Chinese paid [censored]s to talk good about them. Really only a [censored]ing delusional fanboy or someone who works for AMD will recommend to spend money on AMD CPU + motherboard now. You bastards talk about Llano? Guess what it's a dead socket you dumb [censored]s it's getting replaced by FM2. Intel will support current H6xx/Z6xx chipsets for Ivy Bridge via BIOS update as per IDF. Where are you bastards now to talk shit how Intel forces you to buy new socket motherboards every year. [censored]ing delusional bastards keep your bastardly opinions to yourself & let us enthusiasts buy what's giving better performance at a better price. Dumb [censored]s! :@

And don't give me [censored]ing shit on if I'm okay with supporting a monopolistic company like Intel or Intel would making us buy P3 for $600 if weren't for AMD & other blah. Who gives a [censored]? Does AMD come to your house & thank-you for using their shit? No. Neither does [censored]ing Intel. They all want to make money that is it. If you feel inner happiness or some shit if you don't buy Intel coz of their monopolistic practice or you want to support an Underdog, stop [censored]ing Using Windows/MS Office/ Apple products. Go do that hell if you do that I salute you. Nothing else. You all are just lying to yourself by saying Intel is monoplistic when Google, MS everyone acts that way it's business. Stop using Google..Gmail, Hotmail too then by your fag analogy

If you want inner happiness go donate something to the homeless people in your country or different country. At least they will thank-you for giving them a day's of food. Unlike greedy corporations? How about that? Intel wants to make profit & AMD gives you better shit well Intel did take a loss of US$1Billion with chipset recall. Will AMD ever [censored]ing do that? No coz they'll go bankrupt. AMD wants maximum profit on whatever they make to survive so even if they make shit they will sell it only [censored] ups like you will buy that shit thinking you're doing the world a favour by not supporting a monoplistic company.
