An Emphasis On Staying Modern
AMD's Jake Dominguez said that refreshing its technology is one key thread the company is working on. "As like any other company, over time our assets have been aging. Andy joined us last year and he's really focused on revamping the infrastructure and we've got this concept now within AMD where every year at a minimum we're going to refresh a certain percentage of the technology and hopefully in a rhythm where every four or five years we refresh and recycle."
BTW, I'm not a fan-boi either way, just saying..
They should give everybody in town free hot water that was heated by AMD processors. Sounds like it would be tasty! (After you made it cold, of course!)
I'm excited that AMD is keeping a datacenter in the USA!
(By the way, eriko, green is an AMD color, too!)
I'd be willing to bet the workstations they actually use for design are some sort of Unix-based operating system running high-end EDA software like Mentor Graphics. That said, maybe AMD uses a custom in-house EDA software solution, so I could be wrong.
Also, holy tape batman.
