AMD CEO Dirk Meyer promised his firm will deliver a tablet chip design that packs "great graphics", but he also added that it currently doesn't make sense for AMD to invest in this market because it isn't big enough yet.
Allocating significant research and development resources is a wait-and-see scenario, he said. "It's [a market] we'll devote significant R&D energy towards when the market is big enough to justify that investment. Frankly, we're still so small in the notebook market that it doesn't make sense for us to turn R&D dollar spending toward the tablet market yet. We'll start doing that when the market is big enough."
And what might an AMD tablet chip offer? "We'll show up with a differentiated offering with great graphics and video technology," Meyer said.
