Pascal will be faster and much more expensive than Polaris !
But Polaris is built to increase VR TAM !
This is the Polaris success story !
From the beginning Sony alone will be the VR market share leader !
Even nvidia maxwell only made 30% of nvidia's gpu market share !
So your "volume availability this month" will be around 10,000 at best !
Pascal transistor count, bad design, new 16nm process burdened by earthquake means miserable yields !
You will hear is "high demand" and pascal sold out within minutes !
What they don't tell you are miseable yields because of design and TSMC 16 nm earthquake problems !
Intel knows it too ! AMD self destroying GPU license ?
Otherwise will be interesting how Intel and nvidia this time are trying to push AMD out of the VR market !
Nvidia did say it is not interested in low margin console business.
gtx 1070 as fast as gtx 980 Ti !
16 nm polaris as fast as 28 nm maxwell !
Only nvidia fanboys can be so excited ! LOL !
Intel killed mobile chips SoFIA, Broxton and others !
Intel can't get anything right !
Fab 42 Arizona: failed
Staying ahead in process node: failed
secure Jobs: failed
5 years GPU dev. with nvidia GPU IP: failed
Soon Intel will be an X86 One Trick Pony again ! LOL !
"they (intel) have lot's of work ahead for their core business."
intel core business:
PC down !
Server China goes to AMD so China down also !
Server competition by ZEN means Intel Server down as a whole !
Keep on the good work !
Sentiment: Strong Sell

"...Things are rough over at Intel. In addition to a huge 12,000-person layoff, Intel has finally thrown in the towel in the smartphone and tablet markets, too.
On Saturday, Intel confirmed that it was canceling its upcoming Atom chip, known as "Braxton" for smartphones and tablets, and that it was also ditching a few other related smartphone chips, the company told..."
"...But in those two years, 2013 and 2014, the unit showed losses of $3.1 billion and $4.2 billion, respectively, or $7.3 billion for both years, AnandTech reports.
So if it racked up similar losses in 2015, Intel could be down by maybe $10 billion in three years..."
I would say "Intel has finally thrown in the towel in the smartphone and tablet markets" and therefore had to layoff 12,000 people in R&D, fabs and marketing.
What will Intel do with this now free fab capacity and with the 14nm shrink there will be even more free fab capacity. Intel fab 42 Arizona is still empty and will be forever.
Wannabe "big" Intel will have to shut down fabs ! LOL !
Till Polaris arrival we will have two months with no news ! A lot of time for MMs to play with AMD stock !
Or did I miss any pps catalyst ?
No license fees for nvidia ! LOL !
