AMD plans to roll out to systems makers in the next two months multiple low cost PC reference designs based on its Geode processor and tailored to specific markets in developing countries. The company decided it will not sell to service providers complete systems like PIC which it said was too generic to serve diverse market sectors.
"We are going back to our core competency of selling chips. We will make reference designs and work with OEMs and ODMs, but we will not do an end product," said Billy Edwards, chief innovation officer at AMD.
