Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) which has two R&D centres in India is planning to hire more engineers for their units in Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The company has around 1300 staff in India, as reported first by PTI.
We should be continuing to grow at the existing centres. We have many open jobs at each site," said Jim Anderson Senior Vice President – AMD.
Stating that India is an important market for California- based AMD, Anderson said there is a huge market for business PCs and the company aims to increase its share with aggressive marketing of its new products.
He, however, declined to give a specific number of open jobs to be filled.
Asked if more Research and Development (R&D) centres will be opened in India, he said there are no plans announced yet. The company will strengthen the existing centres because a lot of advanced engineering work is being done in India.
"For our Ryzen Mobo processor, lot of engineering work was done in Hyderabad," he said.
So far this year, the company has launched high- performance chips Ryzen 3, 5 and 7 for consumer PCs, a chip named Epyc for corporate servers and also a revamped graphics chip called Vega. Last week, it had launched a new line of microprocessor chips called Ryzen Pro for commercial PCs.
