While cloud hyperscalers have dominated the generative AI discussion, enterprises are wary of costs as well as protecting data and see hybrid approaches more viable.

AMD CEO Lisa Su said multiple customers are at the chipmaker to power AI projects and have "initiated or expanded programs supporting future deployments of Instinct accelerators at scale."
Intel's PC chip business was down 12% in the second quarter from a year ago to $6.8 billion and its data center and AI business had revenue of $4 billion, down 15% from a year ago.
