I'm really hoping that AMD can turn it around and actually become the company we all want them to be.

Everyone gets giddy with excitement when amd and nvidia duke it out with video cards, hopefully soon we can feel that same excitement when it comes to their cpus.

First reactions, that's a dude with lipstick and a wig. I know, very insensitive. Hopefully she'll do well and I wish her all the best.

Vishera/Trinity probably nothing substantial engineering wise; although project management and to market objective will be solidified. In the meantime she’ll have the reigns for CPU roadmaps engineering focus, so really it’s at least a year and a half.

Luckily looks is not everything. This firecracker will rock your world technology wise ....

@OP This will be good, international experience, properly educated, well traveled, no more than 5 miles around AMD's home office and anything else she brings will be great.
This might finally push AMD to become a global company.

Keep up the good work Rory. I suggest those that has cash start looking at buying AMD stock, it might appl your stock portfolio.

It's not the engineers that are the issue, it's the management.
