AMD managed to land the PS4 & Xbox 720 with high margins
One look at the APU from AMD that puts the CPU and GPU combined on one chip at a lower cost than the combined cost of Nvidis's GPU and Intel's CPU.
By combining both into a single APU AMD could do it and save Sony, Microsoft and AMD money all at the same time
Since AMD can have the APU made at a reduced cost to them then using a seperate CPU and GPU, the saving could be passed on to Microsoft and Sony and AMD was still able to keep the margins higher.
(((Sony and Microsoft would have no idea what is costs AMD for these APUs.))) When Sony and Microsoft was taking bids, both companies knew what the bids were for a seperate CPU and GPU.
How else can anyone explain why AMD is going from a 300 million loss to a profit. To do that, margins would have to be high.
It is not by chance that AMD will have all this revenue coming in giving AMD a profit during the exact same quarter AMD is shipping components to Microsoft and Sony.
2+2=4 no matter how much the PAID bashers claim it equals zero.
