Who we are
AMD processors power people to lead their fields at the cutting edge. From healthcare and entertainment to science and autonomous driving - when AMD performance meets the potential of our partners, we can solve the world’s most important challenges.
At AMD, we develop semiconductor technology that helps to enable the future. Our high-performance processors power the servers for modern data centers, personal computers, game consoles, industrial devices and more. Through the use of our technologies, we help open possibilities for creators, researchers, inventors and explorers to tackle some of the world’s toughest challenges.
That is why we are focused on creating the next generation of products to positively benefit society and the planet. We aspire to embed environmental sustainability across our business, ensure safe and responsible workplaces in our global supply chain and promote stronger communities where we live and work.
Founded in 1969 as a Silicon Valley Start-up
The AMD journey began with dozens of employees focused on leading-edge semiconductor products. From those modest beginnings, AMD has grown into a global company setting the standard for modern computing through major technological achievements and many important industry firsts along the way.
Today, AMD is the high performance and adaptive computing leader, powering the products and services that define the future of the data center, artificial intelligence, PCs, gaming, communications, and automotive.
High performance and adaptive computing is transforming our lives.
Build great products that accelerate next-generation computing experiences.
To achieve real progress, it takes ground-breaking innovation and human ingenuity working together to create something better than either could achieve alone.
We care deeply about transforming lives with AMD technology to enrich our industry, our communities, and the world. Our mission is to build great products that accelerate next-generation computing experiences – the building blocks for the data center, artificial intelligence, PCs, gaming and embedded. Underpinning our mission is the AMD culture. We push the limits of innovation to solve the world’s most important challenges. We strive for execution excellence while being direct, humble, collaborative, and inclusive of diverse perspectives. This is who we are at our best. One Company. One Team.
Equality and diversity
We are committed to growing diversity, belonging and inclusion (DB&I) in our workforce to help embrace different viewpoints and experiences, foster innovation, challenge the status quo when needed, and drive business performance. To achieve our aspirations, we need a strong culture that reaches across all aspects of our business. That’s why we have set a goal that 70 percent of employees participate in AMD Employee Resource Groups and/or other AMD inclusion initiatives by 2025.2
Additionally, we are committed to increasing the percentage of global female hires in engineering roles and the percentage of under-represented group hires within our U.S. workforce year over year. For 2021, we have made these efforts a component of our company’s strategic metrics and milestones to inform our incentive plan.
At AMD Research, our efforts to build a culture of inclusion expand beyond the company walls. AMD Research members actively participate in a wide range of external-facing activities aimed at enhancing diversity and inclusion throughout the broader research community. These activities include supporting early-year graduate students, fostering the careers of women and under-represented minorities, and promoting a welcoming and inclusive experience at the conferences we attend.
