Lonerabbit, they already tried that hat trick, but it didn't stick, or produced the results that you speak of. Loyalty and hard work are just one of many issue that the next CEO will have to deal with. I agree with also the sentiment that AMD should focus in what does well, and not shadow everything Intel does. AMD has done great low power CPUs, graphics and server targetted CPUs, among other things.

wow...quite some discussion going on the new CEO. Probably we can send these suggestions to the AMD board and get some publicity. One thing is sure though that AMD needs the kind of magic that Mr. Sanjay Jha has done for Motorola.

@will99878898- Good point. Despite being shown the door, it sounds like Meyer has pretty good prospects for future employment.

Good post. Intel has it's own roadmap and It's almost monopoly in the electronic world and leading other ODM & OEMs. AMD is having it's own strengths & markets. AMD should have visionary team and strong financial to share NO 1 position with Intel. Competitive and futuristic solutions will easily lead AMD to capture major share on CPU market. All the best. We wish AMD & Intel will lead the electronic world in green direction.

Kinnar, I wont say he will be lucky person since AMD is not in its best so that person needs to earn hard.

Maybe the financial and marketing side of AMD has always been tough, but as they keep making these complex processors, there should be enough very competent people in the company. What I miss, is how they are going to position themselves between Intel and ARM in the mobile market. Maybe someone could take over that spin-off and create a fusion processor between ARM and AMD where you can power off the AMD processor completely, e.g. if anybody wants to work a little bit, he could easily load it into the accompanied (thin-client) tablet where he could plug-in the phone (and the phone charges). This would certainly boost the world of cross-compilation. Of course, e.g. in Android, you would need to reload the activity in the new processor core or pass it to the other Java VM. Why do we need an independent smartphone and tablet? If you buy a smartphone of 500 $ then 100 $ need to be enough for a tablet without processor, no camera needed.
