Game publishers have complained that current consoles, each with a different architecture, come with a steep learning curve that drives up development costs, according to Doherty. Those companies will save money with the new chips, he said.
That will keep the costs of the games down and affordable. Lower game costs usually results in more games being sold. The more games being sold will bring in more royalties to AMD for optimization. This will spark more demand for the new consoles which will be more revenue for AMD.
