China Daily reports AMD senior vice-president Randy Allen believes the economic slowdown represents a tremendous opportunity for the chip maker. He also believes China will be critical to AMD's success.
But Allen said he is confident about AMD's business outlook.

He said China will play a critical role in the company's success, especially amid uncertainties in the world market.

"For AMD to be successful, we have to win in China," he said.

Earlier this month, AMD decided to drop its "Smarter choice" tagline in exchange for "The future is fusion", as it tries to highlight the combination of its microprocessor and graphics technologies.

AMD's first 45-nanometer processor "Shanghai" is expected to be shipped in the fourth quarter of this year, featuring high frequency, high performance and low power consumption.
