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...

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
