Complete with mystery guest


Top AMD execs will host a news conference next week to shed more light on AMD’s ambidextrous strategy. We are looking forward to it, as we are still sort of puzzled by the new approach.

The ambidextrous strategy envisions new system-on-chip designs based on AMD’s in-house architectures combined with solutions designed by third parties, namely ARM.
