Henri Richard, AMD's Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, said in an interview: "We can maintain our technology leadership until 2007/08. "It's difficult to predict what'll happen after that, but we'll work hard to keep our customer-centric leadership intact."
Richard admitted that AMD has a window of opportunity. But, he said: "Being realistic, there are going to be times when we're a little ahead and there are going to be times when we're a little behind but, technologically, we'll not rest on our laurels and allow them to catch up. I don't see us shrinking and, as anyone that was at IDF can testify, they [Intel] have nothing that can hurt us.
Richard further claimed the new fab in Dresden will provide a significant boost and he believes it may enable AMD to capture 30 percent of the market. More info at The Inquirer
