Bulldozer was a epic blunder bust fail so AMD's Zen copied Intel in many but not all ( Intel Ring Bus) µarch features, but again it will be too little and too late to compete with Skylake's new µarch and much improved performance.
AMD's Zen will be a cheap lower performing meager margin inferior Intel copy, better than Bulldozer but nowhere near Skylake's µarch. AMD R&D is so flawed that it needs to copy Intel to keep from designing another blundering Bulldozer, AMD is indeed doomed.
Nobody is paying anyone to bash AMD but AMD marketing is paying viral propaganda pumping puppets to infest tech sites and investment boards. AMD needs to be in BK reorg court ASAP so we can clear these paid AMD pumpers from the face of the Earth.
Its just blatant AMD excuses to come out and say a old rebranded GPU needs more driver tweaks to get it up to speed. AMD has become one huge blundering cash burning excuse of clueless blundering mistakes.
HBM1 is a expensive 4K gaming dud, AMD missed the 4K gaming boat with its lowly 4GB of memory and now its one excuse after another.
Nice find Doc, the AMD dooming news will soon bring closure to all the HBM1 hype, 4GB of memory just isn't going to fly in the 4K gaming sky. HBM1 is too little too lame and too late to save our AMD friends from doom.
