None of this is a definitive indication that AMD will continue be a relevant company. I applaud their APU initiatives but the traditional desktop isnít dead yet and ARM is looking like a very big player. They could be caught between a rock and a hard place real fast.
AMD needs to outperform both Intel and ARM SoC with respect to CPU / GPU performance in the mobile space and do so within a more efficient power envelope.
I guess my point is, the question isnít the direction the industry is going in but if AMD will remain healthy enough to get there,Ö.
