AMD to host own "IDF" conference in Taiwan

Processor 721 Published by

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].
