AMD gpus are very competitive. If I were the ceos I would sell of cpu business. Keep ATI.
The reason AMD sucks is because they no longer have the economies of scale for chips lower than
Nvidia is stuck at
If AMD didn't sell global foundries and also had
Hairy let's say AMD has a theoretical superior architecture?
They can't. Lower size increases speed and power requirements. Only advantage AMD has is cost
Only saving grace is ATI graphics. If nvidia gets a hold of
I was a loyal AMD user too. I tried and stayed til last year. It is frustrating but an i7 4 core with 8 virtuals with hyperthreading really sped uo my games compared to the 6 core. It is 2015 and time to move on. AMD needs to leave xp 6 and go all ATI to stay solvent.
It could also be related to the ranking of minor league affiliates to Major League Baseball teams. A teams are typically rookies, or veterans well past their prime who are looking for a way to move into coaching or some non-playing role (but they're still good enough to show off some skills). AA teams are sort of Purgatory. If a prospect doesn't move through this level relatively quickly, statistics say he probably never will. AAA teams are where the replacement-level Major League talent is being held in reserve, or fine-tuned, or where injured players go to sharpen up after time off, etc.
What would be interesting in this grading system is that AAA is not the top, as the entire system is a feeder for The Show. What would the equivalent be in game studios? I have no idea.
You'll never be the Purple Squirrel,
You'll never even see on.
'Cause I can tell you anyhow,
They'd rather H1B one.
Yeah, I remember. However, a) it still worked on NVidia, and b) it doesn't seem to have helped AMD's marketshare.
Witcher 3 is included with all sorts of NVidia cards, I noticed today. It's still going to work on AMD. It doesn't mean CD Projeckt thinks AMD needs better Linux drivers.
No Beowulf clusters yet?
Steam Manager 1: Ok, lets tell NVidia what's what. Make HL3 AMD only. Somehow.
Steam Manager 2: Sir, I'm just looking at the Hardware Survey that we run, and just over half of our customers use NVidia.
Steam Manager 1: Oh. Ok, lets not throw away half of our potential sales.
Steam Manager 2: Good call.
Would that really help?
I'd think steam users fall into two main camps; the casual 'whatever came with my PC' camp, and the 'hardcore gamers' camp. Hardcore gamers are either going to blindly go with their favorite platform, or they're going to go by benchmark numbers.
