AMD Opens New Global Design Centre in Hyderabad

AMD today announced the opening of a new design centre in Hyderabad, featuring world-class lab facilities dedicated to furthering both software and hardware innovations at the heart of AMD's popular Accelerated Processing Units (APUs.) In a ceremony held today, the new design centre was inaugurated by Rory Read, president and chief executive officer at AMD.

"AMD is committed to providing our customers with innovative, tailored technology solutions that empower people and deliver exceptional experiences," said Read. "Our Hyderabad Design Centre will play an important part in that mission as the team works in concert with our other design centers around the world to deliver AMD's next round of innovative products."

Located at Raheja Mindspace, HITEC City, Madhapur, in the heart of Hyderabad's technology hub, the new facility features 175,000 square feet of world-class engineering labs, equipment and office space for the hundreds of engineers who work there to deliver world-class, differentiated System-On-Chips (SOCs) for AMD and its global customers. AMD also has a design centre in Bangalore, as well as sales offices in New Delhi and Mumbai.

"India is a crucial market for AMD, and our design centers in both Hyderabad and Bangalore are key design and development hubs for our business," said Madhusudan Atre, corporate vice president, Design Engineering at AMD. "Like our talented engineering teams around the world, the engineers working in AMD's new Hyderabad Design Center are every bit as focused and committed to the sustained delivery of hardware and software innovations that can help drive the company's business forward."

No, you implied Hyderabad as the world famous tourist destination. I just quantified that it wasn't necessarily going to be considered in 2013... at least by that list, just like those other cities you mentioned.

You where the one who took issue with me. It wasn't that I didn't know Hyderabad is in India, but yes want to know exactly in what part of India it is located. Perhaps I didn't need to say I needed to look it up, I suppose it's that I'm secure enough to realize intelligence isn't what you know, more what you're willing to learn.

Ah, you pretty much already did...
I just wonder what people like you do in a technology-related site. We have all read and understood every word you said from the start. You can continue to edit the posts, but you cannot edit our memories or the cache stored in many many servers.
The following (which itself you edited after a while like most of your posts):

Had to look up Hyderabad just to be positive where it was exactly was...

Hey Jim (an engineer from any other country in the world)... we're sending you to a design centre featuring world-class lab facilities dedicated to furthering both software and hardware innovations!
Wow that's sounds Keen!
Where is it!
Hyderabad
Where...?
Hyderabad, India
Who's on first...
in addition to the following:

First the article never specifically said it as being a city in India, at least in the abbreviated front page. While I've heard of Hyderabad it's not something my brain needs to commit to memory as to exactly where the sixth largest city of India is geographically located?
...proves that the following:
It wasn't that I didn't know Hyderabad is in India, but yes want to know exactly in what part of India it is located.
...is a BIG FAT LIE.

About whether Hyderabad or Moscow or Berlin should or should not be considered well-knows cities on account of their absence from a particular list, I am gonna say CHEERS! You've proved your worth!:respect:

Thank' for using my writings to delineate exactly what I said... I'll entrust those in this form to read and make their own assessment.

You've established in just 36 posts (almost all in this topic with various members) you're confrontational and a bane if members articulates something that doesn't suite you. I'm not here to change anyone's beliefs, especially when technology-related, but when some "schmo" confronts with denigration, such provocation is not going unchallenged.

It's evident you're just the latest in a long list of what's termed as nothing more than, a Troll.

I am truly disappointed in some of the members in this thread, the opinionated responses to an article that is otherwise harmless and informative leave something to be desired. AMD know what they're doing. They're a company that handles(notice i said the word handles) millions and millions of dollars. I'm fairly sure they know how to do business better than 90% of the people complaining about where the location of this new building is. Good for AMD, good for Hyderabad. China has nothing to do with this so dont mention it.
Take your pointless conversations into private messages, thats what its there for, you can "discuss your opinions" there.
THIS. Also I would like to add to all the India bashers on here that they really should look closer at statistics. India's higher education work force is one of the BEST in the world. They train in the US and Europe for their graduate degrees and if you think snake charmers are the ones that will be working at AMD I got some cheap land to sell you idiots......errr elitists forum members.

You, Nabarun, are taking the price for stupidity though. Calling people Hitler is not productive in any way.

In short I have no idea why you are arguing. They are opening a design centre in Hyderabad. That is good. End?
I have had that Bookmarked since around '91!

Literate folks will brains will of course make their own assessment. The references to your ever-changing conflicting statements are provided to simply aid them in the process.

With this last vulgar name-calling you have also revealed your true "class".

Thanks for all the praise, man :D But if you don't mind me correcting you, majority of people (including engineers) graduate from India itself. In addition to a plethora of engineering colleges, the Indian Institutes of Technology is some of the best engineering institutions in the world.

I'm just saying the US has some of the best if not THE best in the world for higher education and they are PACKED with foreign nationals coming here to get their degrees. A lot go back to their home nations and work in places like AMD's new plant in India.

There is NOTHING WRONG with this at all IMO.

Also according to your link that school is ranked 31st in the world. Honestly even on that list it didn't even break the top 10 and the engineers at AMD or Intel are top 5 school kinda guys.

A LOT of US and UK Universities are OVERRATED, don't flatter yourselves. There are extremely good Universities in non-English native speaking countries like Japan, China, India, Germany or even Iran that are a lot better than even top 10 Universities in that list. This is because those TOPs are made mostly by US/UK sites and are mostly subjective NOT objective reviews.

At the beginning of that article it stipulates, "Ranking of the world's top universities in physical and life sciences"...
Physical science is the study of physics and chemistry.

I thought this was about Universities with Engineering & Technology disciplines?

To clear things up, that link wasn't meant for you. Having said that, my point is, millions graduate from Indian college/universities every year (although, to be fair, not all of them are "world-class"). A VERY small fraction of Indians can actually afford to travel abroad for ANYTHING. You'd know, studying in MIT or Oxford requires more than just brains. And as far as rankings are concerned, they are not solely based on the quality of education. A number of factors are taken into account. India, with is poor economic and pathetic sociopolitical conditions, corruption etc, would be fortunate-enough to be ranked even 1000. What I do know for a fact, is that IIT grads are some of the most sought-after in the world.

I wasn't trashing India's schools man. They teach better than most "first world" nations. I was just saying the cream of the crop tend to do their graduate studies in Europe and or the US and they are the ones at AMD or Intel for the most part. Brains can only go so far. Sometimes you need the bankroll to buy the best......and one thing the US and Europe have an abundance of in private universities is excess cash to have the very best in equipment. MIT comes to mind.

Meh you're both right. There are good schools in many nations, and the top schools are sort of sprinkled out. The US many great schools, but I think Prima.Vera thought you said US school = great school. Which is not the case.

Indian engineers

I migrated from intel to AMD with the advent of the fx-8150. Prior to that, I had 6 intel gaming rigs but I ditched intel for personal and ethical reasons. I have an fx-8350 and I am very pleased with it. I am delighted to hear AMD have opened R&D labs in Hyderabad and Bangalore. They are the hub of tech development in India. I have been in the Indian education system for one year and Indian students (even in A-level) are incredibly good at mathematics, physics (and engineering at university level). Indian students are without a shadow of a doubt, of a much higher calibre than american students (just go to youtube and type in the search bar 'stupid americans' and you will be horrified to see the mediocre level of academic ability in usa).

I just want to illustrate this stark contrast to foolish individuals such as 'fordgt90' who arrogantly assume that engineers from a developing country are of a poor standard. This is completely false. My brother is a chemical engineer and he works in London. He was even transferred to a project in Boston (usa). In the London office, he works with Indian chemical engineers who graduated from Indian universities. My brother is impressed by the level of academic/engineering knowledge that the Indian engineers possess.

On the extreme opposite end of the (in)competence scale are the american engineers he worked with whilst in Boston. They were struggling to correctly design (from scratch) an oil refinery and extraction plant. In the end, the project was transferred to the Delhi office and the Indian engineers wrapped up that project in just one month and to a high standard.

Allow me to illustrate my point. We all know that usa makes the most atrociously bad cars in the west (your car panels, dashboards and steering wheels are not even properly aligned!). This is why the majority of people in Europe refuse to buy American cars because we know they are petrol hungry piles of junk.

I recommend you guys stop mocking the competence of Indian engineers, bearing in mind your own gross incompetence. You know who you are, Jorge et al. India is at the cutting edge of Biomedical research and is now making her mark in engineering.

Themailman78. Thanks dude. It is a shame that a lot of westerners think that scientists and engineers in developing countries are of a poor standard. This is completely false and their opinions are founded upon nothing more than arrogance and racism. In fact, many Indian universities are of a much higher calibre than the vast majority of British and American universities. I have been through the British university system and I can tell you it is over rated. In India, even at O-level and A-level, students are forbidden to bring calculators in the exam. They have to do all calculations by hand!. This is why Indians are very good at the cerebral sciences (ie: ones that involve a lot of logical deductions and calculations).
