In a response to a question about the launch of the Radeon RX 480 video card, AMD CEO Lisa Su commented that demand continues to be strong and that 14nm LPP yields are good. She also reiterated that the RX 460, 470 and 480 are the full Polaris lineup and that these three products will drive the overall product momentum in Q3 2016.

Okay. Great. Thanks, Lisa. And since the launch of your Radeon 480 graphics product end of last month, have you been able to supply to demand for the cards or if not, when do you expect demand will rise to match supply?

Lisa T. Su - President, CEO & Non-Independent Director
Yeah, so, David, we're very pleased with the launch of the Radeon RX 480. We had good supply at major retailers on launch day. Since then, the demand has continued to be strong and so some of the retailers are out of supply. We do see that the 14nm LPP yields are good and we are ramping up production steeply. So we expect that that will equalize as we go through the quarter. We are also very soon going to launch the rest of the Radeon RX family. And so you'll see three products in the third quarter in terms of overall product momentum.
