AMD Completes Acquisition of Xilinx; Firm's Narrow Moat Is Strengthened With FPGA Leader

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Abhinav Davuluri, CFA |

Advanced Micro Devices designs an array of chips for various computing applications. These products include central processing units and graphics processing units tailored to PCs, game consoles, and servers. AMD operates in the x86-based duopoly with Intel that dominates the PC and server CPU markets. We think AMD benefits from intangible assets related to its x86 instruction set architecture license and chip design expertise, which gives us confidence that the firm will generate excess returns over the cost of capital over the next decade and thus warrants a narrow economic moat rating.
