Dr. Su’s address is sche­du­led for Wed­nes­day, Janu­a­ry 9 at 9:00 AM in the Vene­ti­an Palaz­zo Ball­room.

In 2019, AMD will cata­pult com­pu­ting, gaming, and visua­li­za­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies for­ward with the world’s first 7nm high-per­for­mance CPUs and GPUs, pro­vi­ding the power requi­red to reach technology’s next hori­zon. During her CES key­note, Dr. Su and guests will pro­vi­de a view into the diver­se app­li­ca­ti­ons for new com­pu­ting tech­no­lo­gies ran­ging from sol­ving some of the world’s toughest chal­len­ges to the future of gaming, enter­tain­ment and vir­tu­al rea­li­ty with the poten­ti­al to rede­fi­ne modern life.
 
AMD is trans­forming the future of com­pu­ting in our ever-expan­ding digi­tal world and revo­lu­tio­ni­zing the $35 bil­li­on gaming indus­try,” said Gary Shapi­ro, pre­si­dent and CEO, CTA. “We look for­ward to Dr. Su’s key­note as she paints a pic­tu­re of the next-genera­ti­on of com­pu­ting that will help rede­fi­ne the future of gaming and vir­tu­al enter­tain­ment.”
 
Dr. Su is AMD pre­si­dent and chief exe­cu­ti­ve offi­cer and ser­ves on the company’s board of direc­tors. Pre­vious­ly, Dr. Su held exe­cu­ti­ve lea­dership and engi­nee­ring posi­ti­ons with AMD, Freesca­le Semi­con­duc­tor, Inc. and IBM after recei­ving her bachelor’s, master’s and doc­to­ra­te degrees in elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring from the Mas­sa­chu­setts Insti­tu­te of Tech­no­lo­gy (MIT).
