WCCF Tech got its hands on a letter from AMD CEO Lisa Su that was send to the company's partners. Yesterday Intel CEO Bob Swan said the firm is shipping over 90 percent of products on time and now AMD also commits to informing partners about the state of its ecosystem. These are challenging times for businesses around the world as a lot of operations are hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic. How this will impact business is extremely hard to predict as on one hand production is affected, while demand is also impacted. For example, a lot less computers will ship but there's also a significant uptick in demand from cloud providers, which are frantically increasing capacity to facilitate the millions of employees that now need to work from home.
