AMD To Expand And Power Alibaba Cloud Services
Alibaba has made a name for itself over the past few years and it has quickly become an e-commerce giant. The China based company is now looking to expand Alibaba cloud services and it has picked AMD to help them do just that. I have to say that AMD is making a comeback and it is hard to say that AMD was once a struggling chip maker. Landing the Alibaba Cloud Services deal will help AMD in the long run. AMD shares have seen a 126% increase this year.
AMD’s Radeon Pro chips will be used in order to power and expand Alibaba cloud services and offering. The core competency of the business is e-commerce but now the company is expanding its horizons and is looking to compete with the likes of Amazon Web Services, the Microsoft Azure operation.
AMD CEO Lisa Su is hard at work reviving the once dead company and her plans for the company seem to be working and taking effect, as we can clearly see. Not only is AMD here to stay but the company is also competing with Nvidia in the graphics segment and with the launch of Zen, AMD aims to compete with Intel for the server market as well. Alibaba Cloud Services deal will also enable AMD to open up new doors and opportunities.
AMD has brought some impressive products to the table, these products include the RX 400 series and the Radeon Pro.
The company is not only targeting gamers but server markets as well. The Pro series is targeting professional content creators. It is safe to say that AMD has something for everyone as of right now and we also hear rumors about the company refreshing their GPU line and not waiting for the new architecture to come out. This means that there could be an RX 485 coming out soon.
