Good luck. But the problem is not a new face. It is Intel. The last I checked, Intel is still there. Let us see what he will do...

Good to see that AMD has found their CEO after a 8 month long search. Hope he could bring AMD to a better position in the future.

Here is a good chance to give the new CEO some ideas about what needs to be changed at AMD. Anyone else want to volunteer their three ideas? 1) Don't bet the farm on IBM. 2) It's not just a PC world any more. Look for partners and create some new markets you can dominate. 3) Look for alternatives to just adding more cores.

Frontal attack never work if your enemy is Intel. We have tried it before at other places. Cyrix failed. Transmeta failed. Please remember how Intel was transformed from a memory company into CPU company. May be a metamorphosis is needed for AMD also. Why do you have to follow Intel? I have seen a lot of smart people in AMD. You can totally create something new & OWN the market!

Dylan, Sad to see that there is no one at EETimes doing a Proof read, before you post the article. In the 3rd Para, it says Lenovo bought AMD's PC Business. What? Should be IBM.

AMD may well go back into OLPC project - not One Laptop Per Child, One Loss Per Ceo ;)

We apoligze for the mistake we made. The story is now corrected. Lenove bought IBM's PC business in 2005.

For that purpose Intel is not doing too good in tablet market. Good time to gain that market.
