Lisa Su says she has no plans to leave AMD , and that there's much that she still wants to accomplish as the CPU and GPU developer's CEO.
During a wide-ranging conversation with TheStreet that took place a day after AMD held a very well-received launch event for its second-generation Epyc server CPUs, Su forecast the CPUs, code named Rome, will see strong early adoption within cloud servers and high-performance computing (HPC) systems. She also discussed AMD's landing of Google as a Rome client, partnerships with Xilinx and memory makers, expanding investments in software and her thoughts on using acquisitions to strengthen AMD's competitive position.
And following her denial of a recent report stating that she's thinking about leaving AMD for IBM, Su indicated she'll be at AMD for a while to come.
"I can say for sure, I'm staying at AMD," Su said when asked about her future plans.
"Although I've been CEO for 5 years, we're just at the cusp of some incredibly competitive products.
And I'd like to see us become one of the premier growth franchises in tech...So yeah, I have a lot to do."
