AMD Abandons Micro Servers to Concentrate on Traditional Servers

Category: General News
Posted: 01:56PM

AMD acquired SeaMicro in 2012 to "tackle the dense server market which was believed to be major future growth opportunity at the time." Dense servers are also known as micro servers and use a large number of small, low power CPUs to provide computing power rather than high power, more powerful CPUs. As of yesterday, AMD has decided to exit the micro server market to return its focus to traditional servers and as a result will take a "$75 million special charge." AMD only released a single product as a result of the SeaMicro acquisition and will maintain the intellectual property rights from the acquisition to "use it in products where it’s of benefit."
