    Where is Zen?
  • Sttm - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - link

    Okay so they have an engineering sample and a silly PR video.
  • bikal adhikari - Tuesday, May 31, 2016 - link

    Well zen is set to reales in Q4 so I don't know what you were expecting
  • junky77 - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    Is it 40% IPC increase including the HT?
  • ruthan - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    Just one more fail from AMD..

    Seriously, you started presentation with 10 years old success stories, in this age in AMD were different people.
    About Zen- only empty promise, APU small upgrade for low end, because Intel already has better IRIS APUs.
    Radeon - 150W and 5TF, low base clock, G1070 has 150W and 6.5TF and as we know, for AMD theoretical performance doesnt translate into real performance usually so good as in case of Nvidia, so its probably something like 4TF - G970 for $200, instead of 300$ for G9720.. and G1060 will smash it in performance per watt and will offer similar price.
    Rajas argument about cheap gaming for everyone, i dont take it from someone who worked for Apple, on products for rich only..

    And that Crossfire vs. G1080 comparison was ridiculous, same as Doom developers sponsored talk.

    Even presenters looked as second grade representatives, no real leaders, i think that AMD life support should be turned off and we new blood and real competitor for Intel and Nvidia.

    Do take me wrong, i wished them success, but they are ridiculous.

    "because Intel already has better IRIS APUs."

    for a price that you can buy 4 AMD APU's for. nobody should get iris unless you like overpaying.

    "Radeon - "

    everything wrong, and pure unfounded speculation.

    the 480 COULD draw 150 watt from its power connectors, but that doesn't mean it does.
    nvidia LOWERED it's performance per clock compared to maxwell, while AMD raised theirs and increased clocks.

    and you're talk about tflops is just utterly utterly wrong and ridicules.
  • dinin70 - Thursday, June 2, 2016 - link

    "G1060 will smash it in performance per watt and will offer similar price."


    First: of all you know nothing about it.

    Second: We'll see.

    Third: R9 480 > GTX970. The 970 is @ 350€ (unless you're buying used and dusty...)

    Fourth: 1080 = 800€....

    Fifth: 1070 = 500€...

    Sixth: 1060 = probably 350€

    So you're reaaaaaaaaally off reality

    If for High-End NVidia is MUCH better (better performance AND cheaper) than AMD. AMD fanboys will try saying the opposite, but it's the case. But for Med-Hidh cards Nvidia has ALWAYS been much more expensive and slower...

    380 > 960 and cheaper
    390 > 970 and cheaper

    Stop with your fanboyism... Jesus, I hate so much NVidia users for this. You don't even see that a 60fps on a 970 is smaller, YES SMALLER than a 70fps on a 390. You're worse than Apple fanboys...

    Jesus... I own a BMW and WILL always prefer riding BMW than Audi, but that doesn't mean the A3 is in any way a cheaper, as comfortable, and more spacious car than a BMW1...

    Fortunately Intel doesn't suffer such clients...

    "So after bringing down video card costs, bringing down headset costs will need to be the next big effort."

    Even children are routinely walking around with $600 devices in their pockets. Honestly, being able to stream to the phone in a Cardboard-like headset would solve the problem of simple VR being accessible. (Not great, mind you, but accessible.)
  • ShieTar - Wednesday, June 1, 2016 - link

    Err, no, children routinely go to school hungry in countries like the US, the UK and Germany. Children with $600 phones constitute a completely irrelevant part of business statistics. Every product that costs more than $100 is only relevant to a minority of people.

    There is a reason why AMD increased their market share last year even though they could not compete with the top-of-the-line products by Intel and NVidia, and that reason is pricing.
