@p_g, Other than Apple, who the heck is making money in tablet. If you hear the wildly successul Tegra2 (as per lot of analysts out there including EET), even their Tegra revenue in Q2'11 was "STEADY". Its the battle of the OS in Tablet and only ios is winning and Android & Win are losing. HW has nothing to do with it.

@help.fulguy- great point. Several firms are chasing the tablet market with ARM-based processors. If they have a compelling product, they kind of have no choice. But nobody is making money except Apple. Nothing is going to change until an OEM comes up with a true competitor to the iPad. If and until that happens, these guys are fighting it out in the trenches for design wins that ultimately mean very little revenue.

As long we have the current system of litigation with judges that think they know the truth even better they think that they are the repository of the thrust AMD has little or none chances of getting bigger. Intel needs AMD for antitrust reasons and will not give them to much space to grow using the legal system. The choice is, in my amble opinion, wrong because the new CEO will try to keep AMD a PC chip maker. The CEO should be e person that wants conquer the future with innovative ideas knowing that many stockholder will not like it.

Is that an up to date picture? He looks like he is in his twenties, not 49. I guess he can help AMD to not look so old.

The recent trend that i have seen with the new hired CEOs is that they go back to doing what they were doing before joining. Nokia, Canon, HP are some examples.

Read will have to learn many new things and we wish he come at par and produce results very fast. He may also have to align with other big player like Apple or Google.

The photo is at least fairly recent (within the past few years) as near as I can tell. You can take a look at the official photo on the AMD website. http://www.amd.com/us/aboutamd/corporate-information/executives/Pages/rory-read.aspx I agree with you. He looks a lot younger than 49. More power to him.

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.
