SAN FRANCISCO—On the day before Intel kicked off its annual developer conference, executives from rival Advanced Micro Devices were in a nearby hotel announcing the company's 2014 roadmap for embedded processors, which power everything from in-car technologies to data center systems in such areas as communications infrastructure, networking and storage. At the same time, AMD put on display a range of systems powered by its processors, from servers to notebooks to a virtual reality game. The vendor's presentation touched on what AMD executives say will be the key growth areas for the company, including the embedded space, dense and highly energy-efficient servers, and ultramobile systems. AMD, like several other established vendors, is looking to reduce its dependence on the global PC market, which is continuing to see shrinking sales. By the end of the year, AMD executives expect these new markets to contribute 20 percent of the company's revenues; within a few years, they hope that percentage will be closer to 50 percent. Here is a look at some of the systems AMD had on display.
