their graphic aib already uses gddr5 on mid-high end card. typically have 4-6 64bit interfaces. this is an evolution of those i/fs

I am a huge fan of Intel and employ two Core-i7 PC systems in my home. But game manufacturers are going to this 8-core AMD CPU for one reason only: cost. Don't forget that the price of a new game consoles is usually the price of a mid-to-high end PC graphics card. For me, game consoles always set the bar a little higher for PCs

This is the first time I've ever seen a computer system using GDDR technology as main memory which makes me wonder if AMD has also built a custom memory controller. Also, take a look at those CAV specs for the optical drive. Rumor has it that the XBOX-720 (a.k.a. Durango) will also shift to x86.

AMD's semicustom business is the pure gold nugget that people forget about when they start bashing AMD. They are loaded with all the leading IP and significan integration capability...

Yes, AMD delivers good value. December2010 I bought a new workstation equipped with an AMD PhenomII 1075T, 16GB ECC RAM, an high end ASUS board, and 5 1T disks (boot + 4 as RAID 5 fake raid), an passively cooled ASUS AMD 5570 video card and an silent CPU cooler all in a Fractal Design Define case. I paid less than €1000 for it. Even today I would pay more to get an Intel based system with comparable specs. Choosing Intel I have to use Xeon processors to get official ECC RAM support. But I am not AMD only, a few month ago a chosed an Intel Core i3-2367M based laptop for my wife.

That's clearly a big deal for AMD. I've often chose AMD alternatives over the years as they seem to provide better value.

Correct. It's AMD.

Yoshida, very interesting BOM... AMD, not Intel?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
