One major error in the reporting, guys... that's 5 TERAflops, not 5 GIGAflops. I left AMD last June, but that factoid is one I certainly remember, since it looked like it would be both the highest flops rate as well as the highest flops-per-watt of anything out there, and would attract the interest of supercomputer sites interested in lifting their TOP500 ranking.

Thanks for clarifying, Jon. That's one of the advantages of the Web era and being able to update quickly.

This is still wrong.  Have you looked at the New Egg site?  There is no "pre order" option.  Only auto notify.  Your comments leave one with the incorrect perception that the product is sold out when it is not.

 

Could you please correct this?

 

There is no pre-order.  There is no pre-order.  There is no pre-order.

BTW - I was asked about the statement I made about AMD's offer on NewEgg for a R9 290X bundled with Battlefield 4. I misspoke when I said "sold out" since the bundle can't officially be bought yet. However, one could pre-order this special bundle and we were told (through reliable but un-namable sources) that all 8,000 have been spoken for.

Great, Jon. So, I get that this AMD's GPU is truly a gamers' dream come true. How big is such a market these days? Are there any other non-game applications this GPU is gunning for? The curious mind wants to know.

I'd love to hear from anyone who has had some hands on time with the latest AMD and Nvidia GPUs

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
