So did Intel just win the CPU speed wars against AMD?

Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

According to AMD’s CEO the company will no longer strive to built the fastest processing units.. Why? Who knows, they will probably focus on ARM and low cost units now.

“That era is done,” Rory Read said in an interview and added, “There’s enough processing power on every laptop on the planet today.” Uh oh. Those quotes leave room for speculation that is significant enough to upset an entire loyal customer base of enthusiast users and may not have been the smartest choice of words.

“I think we come in and steal the bacon around the whole thin-and-light movement and capture a significant portion of the opportunity there,” Read said.

“It can be a very different AMD going forward, but we have a long way to go,” he said. “There’s been a passion for innovation but there needs to be a passion for delivery and a passion for the customers.”

Ofcourse this dosen’t mean AMD processors suddenly suck, just that future generations will not be as fast as Intel processors. And considering AMDS rather recent aquisition of ATI they might put more energy on making a faster GPU than NVIDIA.
