AMD interim CEO Thomas Seifert revealed that the company has no plans to enter the smartphone market at the present time, and that a Fusion chip for the tablet markte won't arrive until 2012.
AMD interim chief executive officer Thomas Seifert said Wednesday night that the company has no plans to enter the smartphone space at the present time, and the company was not developing a baseband chip.
And although some tablet makers are selecting AMD parts now, Seifert said that its 2012 APU roadmap addresses the tablet space.
"We have no intention of entering the smartphone space at this point of time," Seifert told the Goldman Sachs Internet and Technology Conference. "We are not in the process of developing [a] baseband [chip] and this is a clear statement. There are enough players in the is market that have a hard time earning money."
