Despite the fact that AMD bought graphics chip maker ATI Technologies—Nvidia’s chief competitor—earlier this year, AMD sales chief, Henri Richard, also made an appearance at the event saying that the companies would remain good partners. “In many ways, AMD is where it is today, it is because of you,” Richard told Nvidia’s CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang. Richard took the opportunity to introduce AMD’s new QuadFather platform—also know as the 4×4—a dual die quad core chip that uses the Opteron processor socket with two PCIe x16 slots for graphics cards and retail packaged CPUs. “We felt that this marketplace needed something better,” Richard said, alluding to AMD’s partnership with Nvidia. “We wanted to redefine the platform so Nvidia and AMD joined forces to bring you four CPUs and four GPUs. “That’s the power of this new architecture.”
