Two big bits of AMD news to share with you this morning, as they appear to be going from strength to strength as a company.
Firstly, this week their financial reports went out and their strong growth has continued. The latest results cover the fourth quarter of last year and the annual results, on the whole they're doing well with around a 50% increase when compared with Q4 in 2018. For 2019 as a whole, they were up about 4% on revenue compared with 2018.
During the conference call following the report, AMD CEO Lisa Su announced (~42:10) that "So in 2019, we launched our new architecture in GPUs. It's the RDNA architecture, and that was the Navi-based products. You should expect that those will be refreshed in 2020, and we'll have a next-generation RDNA architecture that will be part of our 2020 line up.". Su stated that more will be detailed about them "at our financial analyst day" which should be in March. Once the info is out, we will let you know.
A strong AMD is good news for the industry, since it helps keep both Intel and NVIDIA in check on prices and keeps them all pushing technology forwards. It's also great to see AMD aren't slowing down on pushing out more advanced hardware, especially powerful GPUs to compete with NVIDIA.
