One last tidbit related to AMD’s last conference call that doesn’t have much to do with AMD itself, but sheds light on Microsoft’s
plans for Windows 10. During the call, CEO Lisa Su was asked whether she could clarify how Q2 results were expected to play out with regards to both the semicustom and embedded business (Xbox One and PS4) against the more mainstream APU and GPU business. Su responded by saying that she expected the semicustom business to be up “modestly,” and that AMD would move some inventory in Q2 and begin ramping Carrizo in greater volume. She then went on to say:
“What we also are factoring in is, you know, with the Windows 10 launch at the end of July, we are watching sort of the impact of that on the back-to-school season, and expect that it might have a bit of a delay to the normal back-to-school season inventory build-up.” AMD could be wrong, of course, but it’s unlikely — the company
almost certainly knows when Microsoft intends to launch the new operating system
, and this isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors of a summer release date for the OS.
