Many players, but especially AMD’s customers or suppliers, are now wondering what the future could bring with the global impact on supply chains. AMD’s Dr Lisa Su has sent a message to her partners and pledged that they will support them and do everything they can to support their business. According to Dr Lisa Su, the focus is on the health and safety of employees and will be followed by local government and health authorities. It has also promised to keep the communication line open and transparent, so that not only its partners are informed of where they stand, but also many of the fans who follow the development of the company.
Below is the announcement that was sent out in its entirety and which I deliberately do not translate to get the sense 100%.
