HECTOR RUIZ, AMD'S CEO, presumably headed back home after opening an R&D centre in Bangalore, took time off to talk to Gulf News, and said some interesting things.
One was that every single innovation in computing technology came from AMD, and not one from Intel.
He has a point, in a way. Intel copied X86-64 technology, even though Intel claimed to us AMD had copied its stuff.
Intel is copying AMD by putting memory stuff in next year's "Nehalem" although it could be very reasonably argued that AMD copied that idea from the DEC Alpha chip.
One thing Intel certainly didn't copy is AMD's poor financial performance. AMD had a lead in technology, but Intel wouldn't let that stay around for long and has clawed its way back in the last two to three years. Read more at Gulf News. µ
