How does it come that A L L OEMs make exactly the S A M E decision and sabotage AMD’s Carrizo with poor designs (e.g. single-channel memory configurations) ?
How does it come that Sysmark prefers intel chips ? The BAPCo-consortium is dominated by intel ! Others are also OEMs !
How does it come that OEMs make exactly the S A M E decision and sabotage AMD graphics with most intel inside Notebooks paired with nvidia graphics?
How does it come that all retailers have AMD PCs in very low supply ?
We know that Intel did bribe OEMs and retailers in the past with billions of Dollars and has been fined in EU for anticompetitive behavior !
Why do OEMs and retailers still act like in the past when they have been bribed ?
The problem is, AMD can't sue OEMs and retailers and can't make offers like the competition !
AMD should sue intel again if there is the least indication of anticompetitive behavior in a country where consumer friendly law still exists !
Dell did give Intel one year time to come out too with an x86 64 bit chip !
Nothing did change !
AMD did shut down SeaMicro not to compete with OEMs and make them angry. But AMD serverchip marketshare did't change.
I expect the same behavior with Quantum.
It looks like OEMs are saying: AMD, we can't be your customer if you compete with us and Intel could be saying to OEMs that only loyal customers will be supported with sufficient amount of chips, contra revenue and subsidies.
OEMs are too dependent on Intel to be free in their decisions.
You need a lot of money to compete with OEMs like Microsoft did with Surface.
AMD made the right decision to diminish its PC dependence.
Sysmark and broken Skylake didn't change anything.
"RBC analysts said they had thought LinkedIn was on the cusp of "fundamentally positive" change.
"We were wrong," they said in a client note."
search this " Just What You’ve Always Wanted, a Game Controller You Can Penetrate "
"The main limitation of today’s video-game controllers is that you can’t have sex with them. At least, that seems to be the reasoning behind VirtuaDolls, the “adult VR game controller” that’s currently hot on crowdfunding platform IndieGogo. In the past five days, 36 people have paid $6,700 for the possibility of penetrating a flesh-colored tube while playing virtual-reality games.
“The amount of passion that has gone into creating a controller with this level of immersion has been incredible,” the creators of VirtuaDolls promise on their IndieGogo page. I bet!
The brainchild of a three-person team out of San Francisco (where else?), VirtuaDolls is basically an interactive Fleshlight, with sensors that detect the player’s “movement” and “position” and affect the game on-screen accordingly.
And by “game,” VirtuaDolls is mainly referring to Girls of Arcadia, a 3-D porn experience they’re developing in-house........... "
You should know that TSCM 16 nm node is using old 20-nm-interconnects !!!
That's the reason that Samsung's 14 nm Apple A9-SoC measures 96 mm² and TSMC's 16 nm Apple A9-SoC 105 mm² !!!
Shorts did work hard the first two Jan. weeks to bring AMD down again !
Govt somehow protect its own industry.
Microsoft and Intel have been fined in Europe but not in US.
VW will be fined in US but in Europe I'm not sure.
With AMD and Intel both resident in US the so called "intel culture" could have relations AMD only can break when Intel runs out of money.
And there is some hope because of intel's very expensive fabs.
What did intel say to Dell when AMD developed 64 bit x86 first ?
Don't buy AMD 64 bit ! We pay you one Billion for lost customers, marketshare and profit for not selling AMD 64 bit ! Wait till we have 64 bit too in one year !
Now Intel 14nm chips are broken but find their way to market. Maybe stupid private consumer is buying at the advertising funded retailer who still referes to sysmark when he hypes Intel pcs !
History already repeats but will be perfectly repeated when intel would tell all OEMs not to buy 10nm chips from TSMC, GF and Samsung !
"Contra revenue reloaded" for old intel chips ???
at fudzilla "TSMC's 5nm plans revealed"
"TSMC expects to qualify the 10 nm node in time for customer tape-outs in the first quarter of 2016, Liu said."
at fudzilla "Intel’s roadmap has three families on 10nm"
"It says that Intel’s first Intel 10nm architecture processor will be Cannonlake and should arrive in H2 2017."
Apple will need high end GPUs and always did choose AMD GPUs in the top line of Apple products !
But another news headline I didn't like today is "Nvidia Details New Partnership With Alibaba's Alicloud"
Alibaba should wait till AMD Polaris is available !
Jefferies maintained its Buy rating and $3.50 price target.
Canaccord Genuity maintained its Hold rating and a $2.40 price target.
After reading the CC there is nothing to be worried about !
I would go so far and say this CC has been very encouraging !
Although AMD is not WS's darling and AMD did miss in the past WS never did learn that these estimates are always too high !
So you have to think that AMD estimates always are set too high so that AMD will miss for sure !
When AMD is such a bad company why not say AMD loss will be 25 Cent and then AMD could beat by 15 Cent !
Faked "Intel bench" already convinced tech media and retail salesmen that AMD FX at best has core i3 performance although it is on par with core i5 !
Now AMD feares that "intel bench" could put ZEN on skylake core i5 level although it will be more powerful than skylake core i7 !
AMD had to react before ZEN release !
