    "She replied that AMD's strategic roadmap doesn't rely on competitors not doing well. "

    That is exactly right. Exactly. Spot on quote. Do what youve got planned and by all means watch the opposition, but do what's right for you and not what's wrong for them.

    Exactly, I think she's done an amazing job, she secured my current build by nearly matching intel on single thread perf and blowing then away in multi thread and value, that's impressive work since excavator! Whatever you think of AMDs products their CEO deserves an award for what she's done. And unlike most CEOs I actually think she knows what she's talking about when she does the videos on the product, I'm not sure Jeff bezos had ever actually ordered anything online himself!

    In fairness though, if you're the underdog, by definition, you can't rely on competitors not doing well, since you're the one not doing well. Intel and nVidia has been able to rely on competitors not doing well because they haven't been for the better part of 10 years. Now, let's hope that AMD can mirror the CPU bounce back in the GPU arena with the upcoming 7nm parts.

    Did they ask her why AMD has sucked harder than an overpriced hooker for the past 15 years? Doing scummy things like half-cores and then calling them full logical cores. Having terrible general performance. Having poor $ to performance ratios. And now their just repeated disasters with GPUs...

    Seems like the only reason AMD is keeping their head above water is because they make APUs for bunches of stuff including the console vendors (who will probably steer away with next gen due to performance). And they make that line of super high end thousand dollar CPUs that people love OCing.

    This coming from a former hardcore fanboy of AMD. My first 3 computers since 1998 I built with AMD; K6-2, Athlon, Duron. Was so sad to see them slide into the gutter and wallow there.

    So the last 2 years have been a complete waste of time? The purpose of this interview was to discuss with Lisa how she has drawn AMD back from its deathbed. If you can't even perceive any of that then it's not worth your time even asking those questions.

    Re: AMD CEO shares key decisions behind company renaissance

    ONE OF THOSE DECisions was to not go hard on GPU's in 2018 ...saddest thing is that I didnt buy any shares @$3 ...This will really stand her in Good stead if/when she leaves. they should be competitive when their new GPU parts come out. I dunno whether crypto saved them, or at least threw them a great big bunch of unexpected $$$
