AMD Will Focus More on APUs and Less on Desktops
Last week on AMD's Financial Analyst Day, the company revealed its roadmap for the next two years. On the discrete graphics front, we have seen the launch of its Southern Island GPUs for desktops while for mobile graphics solution, AMD made available its Radeon HD 7000M GPUs that are codenamed "London".
Besides revealing the roadmap, the company also outlined its strategy for the future. It is hedging its bets on system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs, low-power solutions and heterogeneous computing. AMD CEO, Mr. Roy Read said that with AMD's realigned strategy, the company is poised to take advantage of an inflection point of the computing industry.
The company will leverage on its first-to-market advantage with its APUs that were first launched in 2011 and continue to expand on the ecosystem that is established by its APUs.
