How AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su Has Made AMD Relevant Again

One of the most important leaders in tech today is Dr. Lisa Su, the CEO of AMD. Lisa Su became CEO three years ago, and since then she has turned the company around in big ways and made AMD a formidable competitor to Intel in the PC CPU space and made AMD a force to be reckoned with in server chips.

At CES I had a chance to sit down and talk to Dr. Su and ask her about the last three years of her leadership at AMD and why AMD has now become an even stronger force in PC CPU’s, GPU’s and Server processors. If you follow AMD, you know that before Lisa took over, AMD had some serious financial challenges. While it stabilized under former CEO Rory Read, AMD’s strategy for the future was not clear, and the company was often guilty of overpromising and under delivering.
