AMD has no doubt x86 will remain important architecture

Speaking to analysts at a Credit Suisse Technology Conference earlier this week, AMD CEO Rory Read said that x86 will remain an important segment of AMD's business for the foreseeable future. Despite increasing competition from ARM, Read said that he expects x86 will still have applications long after he's retired.
“There are no doubts that x86 is going to be a huge portion of our business. I think that it is going to be an important segment of our business for 5 – 10+ years. The x86 is going to be here long after I am retired. […] There will be x86 applications just like there are mainframe applications today, 25 – 30 years later. That is not going to fundamentally change,” said Rory Read, chief executive of AMD, at Credit Suisse Technology Conference earlier this week.

Throughout its history, the x86 architecture has fought many battles, some of which determined the future of the whole computing industry. The x86 managed to become the de facto microprocessor standard for servers, which replaced mainframes and essentially killed proprietary processor architectures. The vast majority of x86 wins were conditioned by their high performance amid relatively low costs.
