Well let's see..... millions upon millions of chips sold???? Yep, that will generate some revenue.

Yeah, that's one way to put it. Let's hope the PS4 and Xbox One sell a lot so that this investment is justified. AMD deserves some love.

Amen. Imagine if there was no competition and only Intel could provide CPU for the consoles. What price would we have to pay then?

Nvidia are not AMDs sole rival. AMD have done great work in the APU market and have even trumped intel for integrated graphics across the board.

They provide us with something special - choice & competition. Well done AMD. You deserve this bit of success.

3billion deal yeah I read a article a while back saying that is what the deal is worth by that I mean that how much money they are expected to make from selling the chips to Microsoft over the years

We'll see later this month when Watchdogs, Battlefield 4, the Witcher etc look and perform better on Xbox One :)

@thetruthx1 compared to x360? no doubt.
TIER1xWOLFPACKx  +   354d ago
Witcher 3 devs said a while back that the ps4 is more powerful, there's a reason why watchdogs and assassins creed have only been shown on ps4 so far that's because it's the better version, battlefield 4 ps4 has been the only console version shown so far and dice like to show the better version of the console game although the pc version of bf4 will be the best version of that game

Basically all of AMD's work is done - they can just sit back for 6-7 years and watch the cash roll in. Maybe 1 or 2 fab shrinks but that should be easy if they are already on 20nm or so for pc HSA parts in a couple of years

''let's hope the PS4 & Xbox one sells well''

Why didn't you include the Wii U as in the article, Fanboy????

Although, that make you sleep at night.

Wii-U doesn't include the AMD APU.....

Only some old outdated AMD GPU, lol.
