AMD says the chip is a CPU only (no Radeon GPU on board). It is made in a Globalfoundries 32nm process and is sampling now. No info on price or power consumption.

I'll be curious to see more about this. The biggest issue I'm aware of for the gaming crowd looking for that last bit of performance is heat dissipation. A few years back, one of the extreme tech sites ran a feature on how they'd overclocked one of the Intel Pentium models to 5 ghz. They used liquid Nitrogen to cool it. It was a "Kids, don't try this at home." sort of thing. They could point to it and say "We *did* it!", but it wasn't a generally applicable solution. I also wonder about the graphics core. My feel is that Nvidia has the edge in gaming, and there will be gamers who might want to use the AMD CPU but not use the graphics core, and let Nvidia graphics cards handle the video. There will probably be a custom BIOS to make that sort of thing selectable.

The PS3 used the Cell processor, which was a very unusual 7+1 core processor from Sony/IBM/Toshiba. Aside from being difficult for developers to use, development on the Cell processor has basically stagnated for the past 4 years, so it is no surprise it was not a contender for the new generation of consoles. (The Wii and Xbox360 both used more conventional PowerPC processors from IBM, so pricing might be an issue for them.)

I am not sure when Intel was competing in Game Consoles, Before AMD previous gaming systems had IBM 8 core processor's. (3 Gens) Probably now, they are too expensive for Gaming systems.

AMD will continue to be on the ball. I fell they are on the brink of something huge. http://bit.ly/IC4m9t

I have questions out to AMD about the chip's cost and power consumption, so look for adds later. Meanwhile, I take this as a sign AMD is still keenly watching the game and moving quickly.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
