AMD Bridges the X86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center AMD Bridges the X86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center Presentation Transcript

  • AMD BRIDGES THE X86 AND ARMECOSYSTEMS FOR THE DATA CENTEROctober 29, 2012
  • FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENT This presentation contains forward-looking statements, concerning among other things: AMD’s strategy and future products, including the features and timing of production of these products, which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are commonly identified by words such as ―would,‖ ―may,‖ ―expects,‖ ―believes,‖ ―plans,‖ ―intends,‖ ―projects,‖ and other terms with similar meaning. Investors are cautioned that the forward-looking statements in these presentations are based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of the date of these presentations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations. The material factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from current expectations include, without limitation, the following: that Intel Corporation’s pricing, marketing and rebating programs, product bundling, standard setting, new product introductions or other activities may negatively impact our plans; that we may be unable to develop, launch and ramp new products and technologies in the volumes that are required by the market at mature yields on a timely basis; that our third party foundry suppliers will be unable to transition our products to advanced manufacturing process technologies in a timely and effective way or to manufacture our products on a timely basis in sufficient quantities and using competitive process technologies; that we will be unable to obtain sufficient manufacturing capacity or components to meet demand for our products or will not fully utilize our projected manufacturing capacity needs at GFs microprocessor manufacturing facilities; that our requirements for wafers will be less than the fixed number of wafers that we agreed to purchase from GF in 2012 or GF encounters problems that significantly reduce the number of functional die we receive from each wafer; that we are unable to successfully implement our long-term business strategy; that customers stop buying our products or materially reduce their operations or demand for our products; that we inaccurately estimate the quantity or type of products that our customers will want in the future or will ultimately end up purchasing, resulting in excess or obsolete inventory; that we are unable to manage the risks related to the use of our third-party distributors and add-in-board (AIB) partners or offer the appropriate incentives to focus them on the sale of our products; that we may be unable to maintain the level of investment in research and development that is required to remain competitive; that there may be unexpected variations in market growth and demand for our products and technologies in light of the product mix that we may have available at any particular time; that we will require additional funding and may be unable to raise sufficient capital on favorable terms, or at all; that global business and economic conditions will not improve or will worsen; that demand for computers will be lower than currently expected; and the effect of political or economic instability, domestically or internationally, on our sales or supply chain. Because our actual results may differ materially from our plans and expectations today, we encourage you to review in detail the risks and uncertainties in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.2
  • THE DATA CENTER IS THE FOUNDATION OF CLOUD COMPUTING AMD solves the most important problems facing data centers: power, space, and bandwidth bringing choice to customers3 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • THE DATA CENTER IS UNDERGOING UNPRECEDENTED CHANGE Annual global data center IP traffic will reach 6.6 zettabytes by the end of 2016 The demand for compute is growing at unprecedented rates Raw data is growing exponentially and we are at the very beginning of the big data revolution Our appetite for information is insatiable - instant access in our pocket, at the coffee table, in the kitchen, at the office… Zettabyte is 1 million petabytes Where does the compute chewing through this data live? In the data center*Source: Cisco Global Cloud Index: Forecast and Methodology, 2011–2016http://www.cisco.com/en/US/solutions/collateral/ns341/ns525/ns537/ns705/ns1175/Cloud_Index_White_Paper.html 4 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • AMD HAS A HISTORY OF INNOVATION IN DATA CENTER TECHNOLOGY AMD acquired SeaMicro and the industry’s premier fabric technology Direct Connect First x86 architecture super- introduced First x86 native computer to dual-core reach a processor petaflop launched AMD Opteron™ launched 2012 first x86 64-bit processor 2008 2005 20035 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENT:AMD WILL DEVELOP 64-BIT ARM PROCESSORS FOR SERVERSProduction of ARM technology-based AMD Opteron™ processors for servers in 2014 The AMD Advantage: Differentiation and ChoiceARM technology-based processors will embed the AMD SeaMicro Freedom™ Fabric, the industry’s premier supercompute fabric CPU APU FabricAMD will continue to design x86 CPUs and APUs for client and server markets6 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • THE RISE OF CHOICE: THE IMPORTANCE OF TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENTFor the past two decades there has been only one choice for industry-standard servers–x86In the era of few workloads, the ―one size fits all‖ server design matched the homogeneity of the workload7 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • THE RISE OF CHOICE: THE IMPORTANCE OF TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENTThe last 5 years have exploded the one size fits all modelWorkloads have changed, and continue changing at unprecedented ratesThe fastest growing are small and highly parallelized workloadsARM CPUs are particularly well suited for these workloads8 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • WHY ARM? $ New business models drive highly parallelized workloads These new workloads drive massive datacenter growth ARM technology-based CPUs can revolutionize the data center by providing disruptive Massive data centers require lower compute/$ and compute/watt compute/$ and compute/watt Lower compute/$ and compute/watt drive hyper dense compute clusters9 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • WHY AMD + ARM IN SERVERS? 10 years of server CPU leadership shipping in millions of systems World-class 64-Bit microprocessor technology leadership AMD is the only company bringing world-class server and systems expertise to the Enterprise class IP portfolio – ARM ecosystem memory, I/O, RAS, design methodologies, tools, platforms Fabric technology for data center- level scalability10 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • EXPLOITING EFFICIENT PROCESSOR CORES REQUIRES A LEADING-EDGE FABRICARM CPUs have many advantages but some tradeoffsARM CPUs cannot fill network links as well as large CPUs doIf each ARM CPU is linked directly to the network, you have efficient compute but inefficient networkingFabrics solve this problem—they link together efficient CPUs into a cluster, and then the cluster is linked to the network11 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
  • AMD-BASED ARM CPUS EMBED THEPREMIER FABRIC IN THE INDUSTRYAMD SeaMicro Freedom Fabric is the industry’s premier fabricDeployed for more than 2 years and in production for millions of hoursLinks small cores and large cores, regardless of CPU ISAOnly fabric that supports Ethernet and storage trafficExtends outside the server enclosure to support up to 5 petabytes of storage The Freedom Fabric provides AMD-based ARM CPUs unique and enduring advantage12 | October 29, 2012 | AMD Bridges the x86 and ARM Ecosystems for the Data Center
