AMD's overdue financial analyst day will be pushed back until 2015 to allow AMD to reshape its roadmap and reconsider its targets going forward. AMD has made some announcements already about its strategy for next year revealing its newest line of mobile APUs, codename 'Carrizo', and demonstrating the progress being made on the FreeSync project through its partners. However, several product areas remain unaccounted for and a detailed analysis of AMD's financial position has not yet been provided.
One of the main causes of the delay is likely to be the recent change in top-level leadership which saw Dr Lisa Su replace Rory Read as AMD's CEO. A similar delay to AMD's financial analyst day occurred when Rory Read took over as CEO in August 2011 from his predecessor Dirk Meyer.
