AMD’s chief executive officer, Lisa Su, has received a prestigious award called the Robert N. Noyce Award from the Semiconductors Industry Association (SIA).
This award was created in 1990 to recognize people in the semiconductor industry who have done important work for their work. The name originates from Intel’s first CEO, who passed away in 1990. It is the highest award in the industry according to the SIA itself, and is awarded annually to individuals who have achieved exceptional results and demonstrated exceptional leadership.
Su will have received it through her work at AMD, where she from 2012 to 2014 as senior vice president functioned and as CEO since late 2014. Under her leadership, the Zen architecture has been developed and the graphics branch has been further developed. AMD was the first manufacturer with Zen to market chip-based processors on a large scale. With this, the chip designer has brought extremely high-performing chips to the market for a small fraction of what comparable monollithic chips would cost. Su has pulled AMD out of a deep hole with Zen in particular when it comes to company performance and competition.
Before Zen, AMD posted big losses, its first profit in years was recorded in the third quarter of 2017. Since then, the top woman has helped AMD achieve excellent results, minimize the company’s debt, bring competition back to a market where Intel has been lord and master for a long time and of course innovates a lot with chiplets. high bandwidth memory and other innovative technologies.
