About Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc., a semiconductor company, engages in the design and sale of microprocessors, chipsets, and graphics processors. The company offers primarily x86 microprocessors, for the commercial and consumer markets, embedded microprocessors for commercial, commercial client and consumer markets and chipsets for desktop and notebook PCs, professional workstations, and servers; and graphics, video, and multimedia products for desktop and notebook PCs, including home media PCs, professional workstations and servers and technology for game consoles.
The company offers microprocessor products for servers, workstations, notebooks, and desktop PCs. It bases its microprocessors and chipsets on the x86 instruction set architecture and its Direct Connect Architecture, which connects an on-chip memory controller and input/output, or I/O, channels directly to one or more microprocessor cores.
The companys processors and chipsets support multiple generations of HyperTransport technology, which is a high-bandwidth communications interface. It designs its microprocessors to be compatible with operating system software, such as the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems, Linux, NetWare, Solaris, and UNIX. The companys microprocessors and chipsets are incorporated into computing platforms that also include graphics processing units (GPUs) and core software.
Server and Workstation: The companys microprocessors for servers and workstation platforms consist primarily of its six-core, quad-core and dual-core AMD Opteron processors. A server is a system that performs services for connected clients as part of a client-server architecture. Servers are designed to run an application or applications, often for extended periods of time with minimal human direction. The servers include Web servers, e-mail servers, database services, file servers, and print servers. A workstation is a high-end PC, designed for technical applications, such as computer-aided design and digital content creation.
The company designs AMD Opteron processors for servers and workstations with Direct Connect Architecture to enable simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing. These processors can be used in various server applications, including database processing (enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management and supply chain management), and business intelligence. They can also be used in applications, such as engineering and digital content creation and other information technology infrastructure applications, such as Web serving, cloud computing, high performance computing, and email messaging. Cloud computing is a computing model where data, applications, and services are delivered over the Internet. High performance computing involves the use of AMD Opteron processor based supercomputers and computer clusters to solve advanced computational problems in industries ranging from oil and gas to weather forecasting. AMD Opteron processors also allow enterprise customers to implement virtualization across their businesses. Virtualization is the use of software to allow multiple discrete operating systems and application environments to share a single physical computer by providing the illusion that each operating system has control over the underlying hardware. In June 2009, the company introduced its six-core server processor with Direct Connect Architecture for two-, four- and eight-socket servers. These processors incorporated six processor cores on a single die of silicon and added a 6MB shared L3 cache.
Client Notebook: In January 2009, the company launched the Yukon platform, which incorporates the AMD Athlon Neo processor with ATI Radeon X1250 integrated graphics and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3410 discrete graphics. The companys second generation AMD Ultrathin notebook platform launched in September 2009 incorporates the AMD Turion Neo X2 Dual-Core Processor.
The companys microprocessors for notebook PC platforms consist of the AMD Turion X2 Mobile Processor, AMD Turion X2 Ultra Mobile Processor, AMD Turion Neo X2 Mobile Processor, Mobile AMD Sempron processor, and the AMD

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
