You could say that again. I mean whatelse was he going to say? Nvidia was a better choice for the PS4 & XBone, but they went with us?

This story has been done to death months ago when Nvidia was butthurt about not get the contract with consoles, and thusly badmouthed AMD and the "small profit margins" that made the business case for not taking on a console contract.

Nvidia costs a hell of a lot more than Amd for what a 5 fps difference for £60 no thanks and some games actually perform better with amd I know this litterally because I sold my gtx670 ftw edition and replaced it with a amd hd7970 ghz. Also if you were to talk about apu type processors just for gaming amd is a lot cheaper and you actually get better performance than intel if you dont believe me check this out

Unless they were prepared to go with ARM then Nvidia wasn't even in the running.

That leaves only Intel and AMD that could deliver an x86 APU. And when it comes to graphics AMD is still well ahead of Intel, despite their recent improvements.

So really there was only ever one choice.

I kind of agree after Nvidia's seemingly sour reaction after missing these contracts.

Expect a lot of back and fourth between these two companies showing up on N4G.

Oh and PS4 is going to be amazing Nvidia whether you guys like it or not. Now you might as well play fair and create something innovative instead of bashing competition or next gen consoles.

Also, now that MS is going with AMD as well, don't expect them to automatically lift you up by the bootstraps.

They're just sticking their finger in Nvidea's bullet wounds lol.

Expect a reaction(s) such as that from a wounded lion at some point in the near future.

Nvidia is actually very, very healthy atm. AMD has been in more trouble lately though, so this needs to work for them.
