That's something AMD is looking to change, and while it had no official announcements to make Read dropped heavy hints that new and more powerful workstation hardware is incoming. 'We delivered our fifth consecutive quarter of revenue and share growth in the professional graphics area,' said Read. 'We believe we can continue to gain share in this lucrative part of the GPU market, based on our product portfolio, design wins in-flight, and enhanced channel programs.'
Sadly, Read would not be pushed on exactly what those 'in-flight' design wins may be, but it was enough to get analysts' attention. 'After years of neglect, AMD's workstation group, under the tutelage of Matt Skyner, has the backing and commitment of top management and AMD intends to push into the market aggressively,' claimed Jon Peddie. 'We have seen them gain market share this year and expect them to gain even more [next year.]'
