What AMD Views as Important: Tablets, Servers, Notebooks & GPUsby Anand Lal Shimpi on February 2, 2012 1:33 PM EST
The slide above really puts AMD's focus into perspective. AMD is mostly interested in markets that have high annual growth rates. Looking above you can see that pretty much all of those categories with the exception of the client desktop are interesting for AMD. It's about time that AMD focused more on mobile and I don't believe that it's too late for the company. Given all of our history as a community with AMD, it is sad to think that the high-end desktop CPU market won't be as important to the company going forward. It's likely the right decision for AMD but it's truly the end of an era.
