AMD acquires Xilinx

Creating the Industry’s High Performance and Adaptive Computing Leader

Over the next decade, high-performance computing will be at the center of nearly every major trend shaping the future. Whether in the cloud, at the edge or across the growing number of intelligent end devices — there is an increasing need to push the envelope to enable new experiences and services. While CPUs and GPUs will remain critical engines for those devices, in a world where algorithms are always advancing and new standards are continually emerging, we see demand growing for adaptive computing capabilities that will be critical to accelerate these emerging and evolving workloads. 

AMD’s acquisition of Xilinx creates the industry’s high-performance and adaptive computing leader, combining a highly complementary set of products, customers and markets with differentiated IP and world-class talent.  As we bring AMD and Xilinx together, there are considerable product, technology, market and financial benefits.

“The acquisition of Xilinx brings together a highly complementary set of products, customers and markets combined with differentiated IP and world-class talent to create the industry’s high-performance and adaptive computing leader.  Xilinx offers industry FPGAs, adaptive SoCs, AI inference engines and software expertise that enable AMD to offer the strongest portfolio of high-performance and adaptive computing solutions in the industry and capture a larger share of the approximately $135 billion market opportunity we see across cloud, edge, and intelligent devices”. Dr. Lisa Su, Chair and CEO

Bringing together AMD and Xilinx will create an even stronger AMD.
