AMD Will Discuss Netbook Plans Next Month
I guess the wait and see period for AMD is just about over when it comes to Netbooks. Previously AMD had been content to sit on the sidelines and watch the market develop. In fact some of AMD’s talk was completely dismissive of the Netbook scene. Now that it is clear that Netbooks will continue to gain market share, it looks like they are ready to move forward in some fashion. AMD’s CEO Dirk Meyer is saying that their approach involves a “complicated answer” and that they will reveal their plans at an anaylst’s meeting next month on November 13. AMD is certainly behind the 8-ball in this market changing scenario, and in the context of competing with Intel, it is obvious, at least in the early going, that Intel’s Atom chipset has delivered so far.
