According to ZDNet Asia that since the CEO change, the company had restructured its business to focus on low power, emerging markets and cloud computing.

AMD is also targeting cloud and virtualization with its Bulldozer series of server chips. Virtualization technology is a "must have" in servers, Mushell added.
