Why you ask?
Because GCN sells itself.
nVidia is a closed proprietary GPU - subject to change without notice and no peer review or user community feedback.
Asia has no bias with Intel - nVidia over AMD.
AMD can market wares in Asia and allow the word to get back to the West. via confernces and trade shows.
The AMD 28nm APU is a balance in CPU and GPU architecture for the first iteration of HSA unified and queuing. nVidia is still using 28nm for all their GPU's yet - why?
AMD has the 20nm as next APU using a substrate that still will maintain balance with CPU and GPU.
Apple only has to address a CPU ARM design with no GPU on the SoC.
Samsung is having NO problems with their ARM processor.
Samsung and Qualcomm is kicking Intel's rearend.
And MediaTek is using an ARM with HSA design for the Asia markets.
No - XBOX1 is a specialized finely tuned Rendering Engine with ultra wide memory band width.
U don't know jack!
R i g h t ....!
Samsung will load up a portable Product with whatever Intel is dumping at cost.
When that supply runs out - Samsung uses the next features to sell devices - and AMD has some great selling points that Intel can't touch.
Too bad Qualcomm is kicking Intel's butt in Global sales in smartphones.
Let us know when Intel sells off their Foundries.
Goldman Sachs is fishing and feeling around for a spread to short Intel / nVidia and long AMD.
That's how the Big Time exits and enters markets.
DirectX will not drive the complex higher count objects like Mantle can on AMD hardware.
Intel and nVidia choke out on the frame rate with over 300 dynamic objects.
AMD solution is 9 times better in frame rates.
Your one penny options way out of the money - aren't going to do anything - idiot.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
These generation of gamers have a full AAA rig at home and plan on taking mobile with same games in strategy, look and feel (but of less performance).
Going Mobile is like practice time for the big time play.
These bashing morons are without a clue!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
mobile gaming beats twitter and facebook while in nothing better to do mode.
Plus AMD mobile will play AAA games and Android games all in one device.
Intel spends $31 Billion per year on Foundry side to build one size fits all chips and underutilized (unless Intel starts giving parts away at cost).
TSMC, Global Foundries are building custom SoC chips at full capacity and still keep within one half generation of node size.
Intel will spin off their foundries under separate company soon.
IBM IS! (selling their foundries).
BIG Blue first and Little Blue will follow (Wall Street will demand it).
Intel gives the stuff away - Samsung will take the gifts - when that runs out - AMD APU's next - AND Cheaper with same performance.
The major error by the Foolsters is keep out Intel and nVidia from the system - and the AMD system works the same at the price of 45% less.
Their goes the Dividends - Market share - and Profits.
APU System on Chip (SoC) CPU+GPU is cheaper and the performance is just as good.
Combine the APU with HSA and Mantle (leave out Intel and nVidia junk) - and it screams yeah baby to any consumer (Price 45% less / Performance the same as over priced status symbols)
Like I've been saying - AMD is getting back Apple's lead talent in hardware (and probably software).
AMD - Appleesque Methods Diffusion
Maybe Apple will roll back their GPU development to only concepts and let AMD do the rest.
Mac Pro is going to win a NAB and Siggraph award in Graphics.
Koduri has already put some fruit on the table I'd say.
if you're into patronizing - condescending - superior posturing - Monopoly Fools can't be beat.
Seeking Volatility (Alpha) just can't let Muckraking fools get all the attention... sad
