AMD last month also announced it would exit the SeaMicro server business. AMD acquired SeaMicro in 2012 for US$334 million.
Microservers aren't doing well, and there was no point continuing in the area, Su said.
"We aren't a systems company," Su said.
AMD has also moved away from the Project Skybridge, which involved bringing together ARM and Intel x86 chips into a common socket. There is no interest in a common socket for the different architectures, and the company will focus on specific solutions based on customer hardware needs, Su said.
Another area of growth would be IOT, especially with 50 billion devices expected to ship by 2020, Su said. AMD's expertise is uniquely suited to areas of IOT that rely heavily on graphics and data visualization, she said.
