For a half cen­tu­ry, AMD pushed the bounda­ries of what’s pos­si­ble in high-per­for­mance com­pu­ting to crea­te new expe­ri­en­ces and pos­si­bi­li­ties for hund­reds of mil­li­ons of peop­le,” said John Tay­lor, chief mar­ke­ting offi­cer at AMD. “We cele­bra­te this moment with our fans around the world who inspi­re us to push for­ward in that spi­rit for ano­t­her fif­ty years to 2069 and bey­ond.”
