ES 2019 keynote speaker will be “Lisa Su,” the AMD CEO who saved AMD from crisis. Her keynote address will be held at the Venetian Palazzo Ballroom in Las Vegas on Wednesday, January 9, 2019, at 9:00 am.
In this speech, Dr. Su will present a variety of applications for new computing technologies ranging from games and entertainment to the future. He will present the Ryzen PC CPU, Radeon graphics processor, and ZEN2 architecture-based next generation CPU, It is expected to provide information on the Ryzen 3000 ‘roadmap.
Su is praised as a heroine who has saved AMD, which has been pushed out of competition with Intel after failing in two strategies of CPU architecture ‘bulldozer’ and CPU and GPU combined ‘APU product line’. Dr. Su has been planning a diversification strategy for the video game market in 2012, supplying ‘APU’ to video game machines developed by Microsoft and Sony, and after the launch of both game machines, AMD succeeded in getting out of the crisis.
AMD is booming in the CPU market after launching the ‘Zen’ architecture and its ‘Ryzen’ processor in February 2017, which is now proprietary to AMD PlayStation and Microsoft Xbox. In addition, Lisa Su believes there is a great potential for block chain, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies-based technologies and has focused on developing drivers for block chain and Bitcoin operation. Based on this technology, AMD launched the Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.3.4, which improved efficiency in March when using existing graphics cards for password-borrowing.
“We see blockchain as a positive technology that can change the way we interact on a daily basis,” she said. “Blockchain technology will bring chances to change the way we do business on the Internet.”
In addition, with the expansion of AMD’s line-up by 2018, AMD’s products in the industry are attracting attention as the supply of Intel’s CPU from competitors fails to keep pace with demand. In the PC market, it is estimated that based on this situation, AMD defeated Intel, who was a classic in the CES keynote.
