AMD selling SandyBridge and Opteron based servers using this fabric is mind-boggling in so many ways:
- Does AMD get preferred pricing and roadmaps from Intel?
- Would AMD compete with Dell/HP and other OEMs who buy most of AMDs processors
- AMD is in effect a server company now selling systems - what would be the investment in going from a semi to a system company
It is not clear to me how this freedomfabric/sea micro system strategy is going to benefit AMD. Either someone at AMD is a genius or then they are completely clue-less.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
