  • AMD At A Dead End With PC Processors?  [View article]
    Seriously?

    The Carrizo offering is based on an integrated package... not a mondo CPU difference.

    Perhaps the author is getting frustrated... or just trying to paint a political target on Tesla?

  • AMD's CPU/Semi-Custom Technology Roadmap And How It Relates To Investors  [View article]
    It's hard to make the call on the purported Nintendo semi-custom win. Keep in mind that AMD is paid for R&D for semi-custom so if Nintendo has a particular feature set in mind they could have asked for AMD to develop technology for it.

    However, I'm not used to thinking of Nintendo as bleeding edge... more so focusing on games compelling for younger or casual users and not so much on raw compute/graphics performance characteristics.

  • AMD's X86 Dead End  [View article]
    I don't know... if Carrizo is making sales and being competitive on 28nm then I'd suggest there is going to be room to advance in that market when the Zen version arrives. I'd also imagine that AMD's costs for 28nm tech isn't on the high end.

    As for Nvidia, isn't it still anyone's guess whether or not the design was originally finished too early with respect to DX12 behavior or have the Internet trolls called that one in advance?

    I think we'll just have to wait and see how the chips fall... ;)

  • AMD: Evaluating The Problems And Risks  [View article]
    @ephud,

    Have they determined the only way to crash it is via multiplying very large numbers or that sort or that this is an instance that represents such an issue.

    I'd wonder about the math in cryptography... as it is a very common activity.

    @ephud,

    Rebates can be perfectly legal... but aren't always.

    @bon,

    A lot of companies have "brand protection" and "social media representation" services... it's just another rabbit hole that is not very fun to worry about unless you can see the gory details.

    @wow,

    " AMD did it to itself..."

    How can you be sure? Mike has covered a lot of bases.

    @bin,

    "Slide indicate only improvement from finfet"

    Did not the article discuss 70% finfet and 30% AMD improvements? I don't think 30% is anything to sneeze at if it's anywhere close to that.

    @xxa,

    Maybe XBone is selling so poorly that AMD can't make up for it even with great Sony numbers? ;)

    @Patrick,

    " I guarantee you the machines were manipulated"

    I'm guessing they have some type of integrated system similar to Carrizo which confers a power advantage... making it harder to compare apples to apples.

    However, if the product is for that market segment then the numbers may be someone representative.
