In my opinion, chain command position reorganizing and marketing restrategizing should also be accompanied with some financial budget reallocation to critical areas, such as the driver development team or service support.

 

Don't you sometimes wish there was one or two more brands competing with each other on the market ?

We would all benefit from that.

 

But that's another story i guess ....

AMD should never have sold off the Xilleon division...That's now the Snapdragon Processor...

I believe top management, or lack thereof, is the biggest factor in the quality of product support, drivers being one and the new R series being another example. In a article from 2012:

Leadership struggles

 

AMD's management team has been in flux for quite a while. CEO Hector Ruiz stepped down in July 2008 in the middle of a series of layoffs, and was later implicated in an insider trading scandal that caused him to step down from AMD spin-off Globalfoundries in late 2009. In January 2010, the board of directors ousted CEO Dirk Meyer because he didn't have an aggressive enough vision when it came to tablets and mobile devices. CFO Thomas Siefert was acting CEO for seven months until a replacement was found. Siefert resigned in September, CFO once again, and he took a chunk of AMD's share price with him. Former Lenovo President and COO Rory Read took over as CEO in August of last year. The rapid turnover can't have inspired confidence in the company, but there's more to it than that.

Hopefully that's starting to turn around.
