PS4 and Xbox One high volumes no problem for AMD

Sony has allowed GameStop to take "unlimited" pre-orders on the PlayStation 4. GI.biz asked if AMD was prepared to handle the demand for both consoles on the manufacturing side.

"From a manufacturing perspective, in a year we ship tens of millions of units,"AMD said. "So we have a very strong manufacturing base for our APUs and discrete graphics. We leverage the same manufacturing infrastructure to develop for game consoles. So the volumes were not something that actually raised an eyebrow for us, because we're already in high-volume manufacturing." (AMD, Industry, Next-Gen, PS4, Xbox One)

if it were Nvidia they'd be crying and asking for more money.
sengoku  +   662d ago
AMD stock's should be looking good.
cunnilumpkin  +   662d ago
lol...not really


its been in the tank for a while, this will help, but not much

for comparison, here's NVidia,


they are KILLING amd on every from

while its good exposure for amd to be in consoles, ultimately their cpus and gpus are weak to the competition

more so their cpu's, WAY behind intel
b_one  +   662d ago
coz nvidia has some gov contracts...with "you know who".
JewyMcJew  +   662d ago
AMD has been famously deemed "uninvestable".

They are doing well lately but they are drowning in debt.
GDDR6_2014  +   662d ago
Not really, if amd barely make a profit on each APU, while that's good for Sony, not so good for AMD
Reverent  +   662d ago
Even if AMD isn't making a lot of money from the next gen consoles, it's still definitely good for their reputation. And having a good reputation is one step closer to getting out of debt.
Kleptic  +   662d ago

I wouldn't say 'way' behind Intel...its true AMD's processor selection for 2013 isn't exactly ground breaking, as they're all still built on the years old pile driver architecture...but new stuff will be available by the end of summer, with some major changes.

but they're also a good bit ahead in terms of apu's...intel's ivy-bridge is definitely a more powerful cpu, but their integrated graphics solutions have always been...and always will be...trash...AMD's integrated graphics can be matched with crossfire compliant dedicated gpu's, for sli configurations at a 1/4 of the cost...i know thats cheating it a bit, and not the performance of two true stand alones...but its affordable, developers say 'its the future', and getting more and more popular...

We'll see...

"Xbox One high volumes no problem for AMD"

No, Xbox One high volumes are only a problem for Microsoft.
Rowdius_Maximus  +   662d ago
Lulz, funny because its true
ricochetmg  +   662d ago
Funny how everyone is talking about GAMES, GAMES, GAMEs...When has MS ever been known for games ? Just about 4 solid franchises I would admit outside halo,gears........there is ?
RedHawkX  +   662d ago
i agree xbox 360 doesnt have many exclusives outside those 4 franchises. halo/gears/forza, etc but who needs forza when theres so many other racing games and gt6. all x360 had was the popularity in american and was cheaper so everyone got it. everyone is getting a ps4 this time around so those few trying to hang on to the xbox one dream need to give it the f up and jump on board the ps4 before you looking like a fool with your pants on the ground.

i mean what exclusives are you guys playing on the x360 right now? thats right it has no games.

meanwhile on the playstation 3 you got blueray movies . you shouldnt even own an hd tv if you dont have a blueray player also people are playing god of war ascension, the last of us, pupeteer, soon beyond 2 souls and gt6 and theres more but id rather not all exclusives.
swerve121  +   662d ago
Your behind schedule RedHawkX. Where talking about this Gen coming up. And they both have blu ray. And did you know M$ was one of 19 companies backing blu ray with there money
threefootwang  +   662d ago
@ swerve121

MS never backed Blu-Ray lol. They had their own version called HD-DVD which failed horribly and they couldn't go back to DVD for next-gen, leaving Blu-Ray the only other viable option.
A-laughing-horse  +   662d ago
Still an idiot huh?
adorie  +   662d ago

MS was trying to put Blu-Ray in a premature coffin by coughing up a billion or two to back HD-DVD.

PS3 trojan horse overruled that. Now, irony at it's best. Xbox One will have the "blu-ray" logo on the box.
pete007  +   662d ago
unless you live Under a rock and go out just to buy your blurayz, we can allready Stream flawlessly in codecs much better than blurayz all the movies you can dream of,
and dont worry about games cause we may have less exclusives but at least we have better multi plats, not sub hd ports with no AA and lots of screen tearing not to mention a far Superior online service
swerve121  +   662d ago
Look how many more there adding bro. This will really be a battle when it all said and done
Wikkid666  +   662d ago
X1 cpu has been in full production since last fall.
pimpschitz  +   662d ago
I hadn't pre-ordered yet because I knew the demand was going to be high. Guess I'll be heading to GameStop on Payday.

Can't wait to get my hands on the DS4 controller. So many games I want to play!
A-laughing-horse  +   662d ago
Anyone who thinks either system won't do well is an idiot.
superterabyte  +   662d ago
Not really. Systems can do badly just look at the dreamcast.
Akuma2K  +   662d ago
Both systems will do well yes, but the PS4 will out sell the Xbox1 with ease.....if the pre-order numbers are any indication, it's not looking good for Xbox1 concerning potential sales numbers.
hellvaguy  +   662d ago
Xbone pre-orders are sold out at alot of places. Gamestop, newegg, to name a few. Not saying they end up outselling sony, but yur doom and gloom prediction isnt accurate at all.
Redrever  +   662d ago
its no lie AMD makes some great graphics and processors.

i got a notebook with AMD mobility radeon hd 4200 its seen its share of gaming Minecraft timber and stone and i nearly killed it with a demo of spintiers.
hellvaguy  +   662d ago
Great gpu's, cpu's not so much.
kryteris  +   662d ago
this will help amd a great deal in the years to come. Nvidia has always had the edge w/ developer and driver support. Runs better on geforce not because the hardware is any better, the market is best adapted, cant think of the word.. adapted for the higher install base which is/was nvidia.

Truth is AMD CPUs are weak, very weak Core i3 and i5s would easily destroy Jaguar.
Hell AMD flagship CPU FX-8350 (Piledriver) at 5GHz only competes with Core i5s.

Everyone knows the ultimate set-up at the moment is Intel and Nvidia combo. Intel Core i7 4770K and Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan

Try arguing it, I send you a 100 links proving me right!
TheEnigma313  +   662d ago
Amd is great for the for the price you pay. Intel cpus are a bit too pricey.
jivah  +   662d ago
Hes not arguing price hes arguing sheer power
