Link2Mobile. When a number of PC manufacturers flooded the market with the tablet PC product, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), manufacturer of the home processor Sunnyvale, California, United States, appeared calm.
Rick Bergman, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Products Group, AMD stated that they did not want to be present in industries that are now emerging.
AMD's view, the tablet PC market opportunities currently available only for one company and not yet present there is a complete ecosystem for the tablet PC as a whole.
For that, as quoted from DigiTimes, June 4, 2010, they will only focus on the Bobcat processor design, processor designed for netbooks in the upcoming 2011.
Currently, AMD is currently evaluating the tablet PC market and will wait until market demand began to emerge before going there. Now, AMD is also more optimistic view netbook segment growth opportunities.
With regard to the Intel's decision that expands Atom line processors to their smartphone product and work with Google to deliver Google TV, Bergman said that they will continue to focus on mainstream PC products.
"Currently, AMD has not had a plan to get into the smartphone segment or consumer electronics segment," says Bergman.
