AMD will follow Intel's and NVIDIA's lead by hosting its own conference. The event will take place on October 18-20, 2010 in Taipei, Taiwan.
For as long as we can remember, AMD's way of showing up what's the latest and greatest with the company was done through two ways: Analyst Days which are usually open for only a limited amount of press, and no tech partners etc - and piggy backing off "the other big blue" when that company brings press and analysts for its IDF show in San Francisco's Moscone Center. Looking through a looking glass, that was a wise use of resources for some, but it also sent a message that AMD is an "also ran" company, rather than one of industry heavy-weights and a leader in a lot of technology fields.
In the past couple of years, AMD organized a single gathering, every year in October time in Taipei. However, this time around the company decided to evolve the event into a fully-blown conference, which is going to be hosted between October 18-20, 2010 in Taipei, Taiwan [via BSN].
