Locked: AMD "won an order" regarding the NX

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - AMD "won an order" regarding the NX

Wow, were back to square one again



Around the Network

lets also not forget that amd announced a custom arm chip win along with the x86 custom chips.. So that could be Nintendo, a Sony handheld, or maybe something else. but likely from sony or Nintendo.

1. Article is from May.
2. Article is speculating based on design wins that AMD announced.
3. AMD did not confirm if the design win was for Nintendo. esp given that PS4 Neo and Scorpio count as new design wins.

In other words, this thread is misleading and should be closed.

Thanks for the info.  

 

Pity,  because I'd like AMD to get the Nintendo gig.  They're getting spanked in the pc market by Nvidia so it's important they do well elsewhere.  I'm aware console profits are not big for these guys but it's better than nothing.

AMD, which competes with Intel (INTC) and NVIDIA (NVDA) in the CPU (central processing unit) and GPU (graphics processing unit) market, dominates the gaming console market. It’s the sole supplier of semi-custom processors for Japan-based (EWJ) Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s (MSFT) Xbox. It has also won an order for Nintendo’s upcoming console, codenamed “NX.”

Don't be offended, is just that many people on most forums simply read the thread title and quickly reply. Myself included.

The articles are dated so no.



Likely false. When has Yahoo ever broken any news regarding Nintendo or any console maker?

The working theory was when AMD decided to blow their mouth open and brag about three contract wins that Nintendo must be one of them, but that was never a guarantee of anything, especially since we have three new SoCs from them -- Scorpio, PS4 Neo, and XBOne S.

These articles are just piggy backing off that. Sorry SuperMetalDave64. 



blast processing 2.0 confirmed.



Well, there's nothing stopping this from being true.
It could that Nvidia has the portable contract and AMD, the console contract; it could also be, like SMD64 suggested, that Nvidia chip is only being used for the time being and not as the final chip.

Yahoo is not suggesting/speculating something, they are really affirming something.
