Last Monday, AMD revealed several details about its current release schedule and has been quite impressing the industry, especially when it comes to the Zen 4 architecture, which appears to be an extremely aggressive increase in the number of processor cores in each processor.
But the thing didn’t stop there. AMD also announced that it has shaken hands with Meta, the company that owns the entire Facebook universe. Which in turn drove the shareholders crazy! The company earned 12% but closed the day + 10%.
AMD joined Facebook and the exchange loved it!
In case you didn’t already know, Meta’s ultimate goal is to be one of the largest companies in the cloud service delivery industry. In other words, the giant responsible for Instagram and Facebook wants to be a serious rival to Microsoft, Amazon and Google, which in turn are responsible for the Azure, AWS and Google Cloud infrastructures.
In other words, the basis of Meta’s new infrastructure will be entirely from AMD, which in turn has relied heavily and ugly on the “pro” world. To like? Just look at the latest announced product range, such as the MI200 CDNA2 Compute Accelerator as well as the Zen 4 EPYC ‘Genoa’ and ‘Bergamo’ processors, amazingly they reach 128 cores.
AMD is growing in all markets and at this rate there is very likely no end in sight! This is so much how Intel is laying down its feet and saying it wants to return to the throne and complete dominance of the x86 processor market.
