Interview with Marty Seyer of AMD

By Justin Mann on May 18, 2006, 6:38 PM
There is a very excellent interview up with Marty Seyer, a senior VP of AMD, in which they focus primarily on AMD's advantages in performance per watt and up and coming technologies. Virtualization wasn't mentioned as much as you'd think, but was mentioned made it plainly obvious what AMD intends:

Seyer: Virtualization is going to be big in 2006. We're going to hear a lot about it ... we already are hearing a lot about it. Virtualization is going to be broadly analyzed and adopted in 2006, but the ramp is 2007-2008 for real virtualization. So on one hand, it's hot.
He talks a lot about the semiconductor industry as a whole, and how AMD's primary focus will continue to be performance-per-watt, which is probably a good idea as it has treated them so well thus far. It is a very interesting interview, well worth the read.

[quote]"AMD is going to be the leader in performance per watt per dollar," said Marty Seyer[/quote]Lol, where do they get this stuff? June 19 he will eat those words, Woodcrest will see to it. July will kick him in the back side hard(CONROE!,) and August will put salt in a open wound(Meron.) And this Virtualization thing, has AMD even gotten one chip with it to market yet? It's funny, they talk like they don't even know what's happening in the CPU market.Now look forward to the FX-64, 3GHz, 125watt TDP, vs. a E6700 2.6ghz, 65watt TDP. Conroe is faster, lower power, and allot lower priced. Sure AMD has the lead in performance per watt per dollar now, but the forseeable future is all Intel(at least in the less than eight core market.)[Edited by mirob on 2006-05-20 08:13:10]
