In a 'normal' year AMD and Intel would typically hold their financial days for investors in November. Intel held its investor day earlier this month where it revealed its progress in 3D NAND for SSDs as well as an updated roadmap for its 5th and 6th-gen Core series processors. AMD, on the other hand, is still yet to hold its equivalent 'Financial Analyst Day' (FAD).
AMD's overdue financial analyst day will be pushed back until 2015 to allow AMD to reshape its roadmap and reconsider its targets going forward. AMD has made some announcements already about its strategy for next year revealing its newest line of mobile APUs, codename 'Carrizo', and demonstrating the progress being made on the FreeSync project through its partners. However, several product areas remain unaccounted for and a detailed analysis of AMD's financial position has not yet been provided.
One of the main causes of the delay is likely to be the recent change in top-level leadership which saw Dr Lisa Su replace Rory Read as AMD's CEO. A similar delay to AMD's financial analyst day occurred when Rory Read took over as CEO in August 2011 from his predecessor Dirk Meyer.
AMD did not provide an official statement about the delay to the source, neither did it clarify the date when it would reschedule its financial analyst day for. The new date for the event is rumoured to fall in January or February of next year.
