AMD has recently been seeing progress in its development of accelerated processing units (APU), while achieving success in discrete GPU market share, during Computex 2010 in June Digitimes took the opportunity to talk to company CEO Dirk Meyer to further discuss AMD's strategy and lineup for the future.

DigiTimes: How did AMD benefit from the spin-off of Globalfoundries?

Dirk: AMD has become a fabless semiconductor company and is no longer required to manage its factories, therefore the company is able to spend more time and energy focusing on R&D and marketing to efficiently boost the investment return of its intellectual property (IP).

In order to speed up the company's response time to market demand, we have integrated the management of CPU and GPU departments and formed a new department, the products group, led by Rick Bergman. As a result, AMD will be able to evaluate all the products with a more comprehensive perspective, helping the company to best use its IP and launching products with an even quicker time-to-market.
