AMD certainly have good products atleast when i look at the latest fusion and brazo platforms. But the advertisement and marketing are not as good as Intel. I wish the new CEO will put some idea into this and marketing their products in a creative manner.

Unfortunately, I don't have a good understanding of top level salaries... I wish I had more direct experience...

I can never digest these golden parachutes...way too excessive in my opinion.

If Meyer was holding AMD back then $12 million is deal so as to unleash that anchor. And if Seifert meant "nimble" as a complement and not a euphemism then that is a good place for Meyer to leave AMD so they at least have a shot at getting someplace good in a hurry.

"We have a good product portfolio, but we have to work on our go-to-market strategy," That is the summary of AMD situation. It is the market and not the technology.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
