Hester and other AMD executives say that the technology in its laboratories gives them plenty of reason for optimism, and that in some product categories Intel is just catching up to advances AMD pioneered. Just next month, for example, AMD is expected to introduce improvements to Opteron, and both companies are designing chips to run cooler and consume less energy.
Much like Intel, AMD is working to increase the number of processors on each chip from two to four, and the company says it will introduce new designs for servers and desktop systems that will be released in mid-2007, followed later in the year by a new design for notebooks.

Basically he's saying that the engineers/scientists aren't coming up with what they want.
"Hester said AMD's road map for new products had not changed much since his arrival. Mostly he has focused on improving the way employees manage projects and pushing them
to develop multiple designs at one time. He said he also emphasized cooperation inside development teams, rather than having teams compete for attention." Sounds like someones getting their pee-pee slapped. :wink:
