Another snippet from AMD's Q3 earnings call. While answering a question about how she sees the ramp of Summit Ridge, AMD CEO Lisa Su remarked they believe the first Zen-based desktop processor will certainly be competitive with Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 counterparts:
Chris Hemmelgarn
Thanks very much. And this is Chris Hemmelgarn on for Blayne. With Summit Ridge launching in Q1 of 2017, how would you expect the channel to ramp that? Do you see it ramping pretty fully in the first couple of quarters of the year, or are you looking for more normal PC seasonality?

Lisa Su
No, I would expect that there will be a relatively good initial demand for Summit Ridge that may be not quite at the seasonal patterns. From where we see, Summit Ridge is playing in a space in the high-end desktop, that we currently aren’t offering a product. So we believe we’ll be competitive certainly with Core I5 as well as Core I7, and we will be launching in those areas.
