AMD: CPU and graphics software may be charged in future
AMD considers learning from Intel and NVIDIA: CPU and graphics software may be charged in future.
Compared with two “partners”, NVIDIA and Intel , AMD has always claimed to be the only company in the world that has both high-performance CPU and GPU .
Both sides are like a duck to water, and the hardware foundation is strong, but it is weaker than the other two in terms of software. It is also the focus of AMD ‘s next strengthening.
At the financial report meeting a few days ago, AMD mentioned that it will launch a processor with integrated AI functions in 2023.
At the end of February this year , they completed the acquisition of Xilinx and spent more than 300 billion to buy this FPGA chip manufacturer. AMD will next Launched data center processors that integrate FPGA – accelerated AI .
While developing a new generation of hardware, AMD is also developing a new generation of software, which will provide developers with a unified development framework for chip platforms such as CPU, GPU and FPGA .
However , AMD ‘s software may change its operating model in the future. CEO Lisa Su said that he will explore the software charging model.
After all, NVIDIA and Intel have already made money from software, and AMD will not miss such a business model.
As for how to charge, AMD has not announced the details yet, and it may be announced at the analyst conference in early June .
