  • AMD's Kaveri Looks Like A Dud [View article]
    Its a bit amateurish to quote an obvious Chinese falsehood when AMD just had a Kaveri Tech day of which slides are folding the internet.

    Original source, currently down http://bit.ly/1i8zRav#

    Highlights captures on the internet.

    That ^^^^ should get you started on the right track, let me know next time you need some proper research help, ay?

    Good Grief....

  • Oppenheimer raises red flags on AMD, Cirrus, semiconductor sector [View news story]
    lol at these idiots, AMD's GPU's are sold out constantly the world over they are so much in demand. over 4m AMD powered game consoles sold in 2 weeks with $100 from each one going to AMD.

    AMD havent done this well in years

    In the light of that they have Down Graded AMD to Under-performing....

    Lunatics. do they just make this crap up as they go along, it looks like it.

  • Nvidia cuts GPU prices to counter AMD, expands Shield's game support [View news story]
    If this keeps up, if AMD keep half of this level of up take longer term, it may do serious damage to Nvidia.

    Nvidia need the lions market share and higher profit margins at the same time to keep up revenues.

  • Will Plummeting PC Sales Affect Advanced Micro Devices' Stock? [View article]
    @ Justin Jaynes, jkioshfiohwiof and joezane. Guys, i added an LTC calculation link so you can see for yourselves how profitable it is. http://bit.ly/190ICRB

    An R9 290X @ 350 Watts (at most) = $15 profit for every 24 hours mining.

    LTC have no ASIC miners yet, LTC is not BitCoin, its still ver very profitable on AMD GPU's and will be for a while.

    Take it from someone who is mining LTC on an AMD GPU.

    Soon after ASIC Miners become available for LTC then the profitability will drop off, but thats not for a while yet, when that happens LTC Value will sky-rocket just as BTC did, so get your coins now.

  • Will Plummeting PC Sales Affect Advanced Micro Devices' Stock? [View article]
    There has been a spike in AMD's GPU sales this quarter

    #1 the release of Battlefield 4, Battlefield 4 is the biggest game of this year, and is an AMD sponsored Game, the creators of BF4 have been working with AMD on 'BF4' the result is it runs best on AMD's GPU's.
    http://bit.ly/1bhcMMh

    To add to that AMD's Mantle API will be added to the game later on.
    http://bit.ly/1bhcMMi

    That and the fact that all the new Game Consoles run on AMD Hardware has PC Gamers increasingly choosing AMD GPU's.

    #2
    Lite Coin has shot up in value over the past week, from less than $20 a coin to around $40, the best GPU's to mine those coins are AMD, some 5x faster than similar prices and even the fastest Nvidia cards, netting about $10 to $15 profit per 24 Hours on an R9 290X. http://bit.ly/190ICRB

    The difficulty on that will go up as more people mine the coin, people are cashing in while the going is good, it will take a long time for it to become much less profitable, with that coins mined will increase in value as the difficulty goes up.

    I'm a long time member of hardware enthusiast forums, i have watched this BF4, and in this last week the LTC mining thing unfold, AMD GPU's sold out the world over in just a couple of days of that LTC Mining news.
    They are restocking now but the price of AMD GPU's has also gone up. supply and demand.

  • The Tragedy Of AMD [View article]
    "AMD has technology, but lacks urgency" -Roy Reed

    There seems to be a problem with AMD's product execution.

    They seem to think its ok to sit on new products indefinitely, until its too late and their competion beats them to it.

    Even now, right now they have a GTX Titan competitive GPU, they have had it for weeks if not Months, some reviewers have had them for weeks, there has been a steady stream of benchmarks leaked over these last 2 months which show it at least on par with the GTX Titan.

    Mean while AMD have had an NDA block on it for all that time, and now, with that giving Nvidia plenty of time to catch up, there is still no singe of AMD releasing it, it is now again too late.

    It makes you wonder give that AMD have done this over and over and over again, are they doing this on purpose? are they in self destruct mode?
    There is no other explanation for it, no one is that inept and stupid.

  • NVidia: Much More Than The Power Behind Gaming Computers [View article]
    Correct :) however Nvidia do need to watch out as AMD are about to release their Hawaii GPU's which are rumored (performance) to sit in between the $650 GTX 780 and $900 GTX Titan for $550, its also rumored to be much smaller and cheaper to make than the GTX Titan and 780.

    http://bit.ly/19pXMeN

    that would put it around < GTX Titan performance on a DIE size thats 120mm^2 smaller.

    AMD have also gained a few percentage points from Nvidia in the last two quarters, its now about 57% to 43%.

  • Next Era Of Computing Favors AMD [View article]
    I was about to say this to him, the A10-6800K is still using the 3 year old VLIW GPU architecture.

    The next APU will get the latest GCN /GCN 2.0 cores. once that happens Intel will be 3 generations behind again, aside from OpenCL Intel need an iGPU with ~3 times the transistor count on a much smaller node to beat AMD's 3 year old GPU architecture (IrisPro)

    I get the feeling some are not expecting what AMD's 28nm APU's are going to do and a few jaws will drop because they don't understand enough about this and because, well, its Intel, they are the masters of the universe....

  • AMD: Digitimes' Rumor Not Relevant To Investors [View article]
    IrisPro's iGPU is the size of a Radeon 7870 while also being on a much smaller 22nm node, Intel had to grow their iGPU to vast size to beat AMD.

    AMD's performance per transistor is 4 times that of Intel, once AMD put GCN onto their APU's IrisPro is left in its dust despite being much larger.

    You should do some tech research, DDR4 and GDDR5 are two completely different things, DDR is system memory, GDDR is Video memory.
    The system cannot use GDDR memory, but the Video can use DDR memory, a GDDR channel has no use other than Video memory.

    It can only be for a GDDR5 iGPU, nothing else....

    The key lettering here is 'G' for Graphics.

    DDR4 is DDR3's 'System memory' replacement

  • Advanced Micro Devices - A Company That Is On The Edge [View article]
    AMD stock goes up and down every time there is a bit of news about them.

    That news is always one way or the other "AMD is a disaster" and in the next breath "AMD will double your money" and then back to disaster again... and so it goes on and on and on...

    Over the past couple of years people have made huge amounts of money from down talked and up talked AMD.
    And so it will go on for many more years to come.

    Here's waiting for the next doom sayer to come along....

    AMD Kaveri Unveiled: PC Architecture Gets GDDR5 http://bit.ly/15x9S7J

    That ^^^ is very important, as it is at the moment the iGPU in the APU is bottlenecked by the system DDR3 RAM.
    Kaveri will get its own GDDR5 memory, which will remove that bottleneck, so it works in just the same way as a discrete GPU, which means the Kaveri iGPU will be similar in performance to a Radeon 7770 / GTX 650, it will blow Intel's IrisPro out of the water with about half as many transistors.

  • Advanced Micro Devices Responds To Kaveri Delays, New Never Settle Bundle [View article]
    Your 'animosity for AMD' is getting quite blatant, Ashraf.

    everytime AMD are involved in a sentence your there with nothing but hate hanging over it like a dark cloud..

    Big cores are still AMD's bread winner, to say they should kill them off is an idiotic thing to say.

    Ashraf, Kaveri does matter, it matters in the same way these things matter to Intel, so much so that Intel are throwing vast amount of resources at the technology and still haven't caught up with AMD where this maters, perhaps thats why you want AMD to stop with this?
    The only way for Intel to keep up its revenues in this climate is for them to take over AMD's market share, and then ARM, and that might still not be enough..... "For a whale"

    Good article Jistin, thank you
