So basically, you're saying that NVIDIA does in fact have AMD's documents, and based on those documents, NVIDIA beat AMD to the punch?

Is that your claim?
Nope, it was ALL AMD's idea. rolleyes.gif

Actually what i'm saying is that your suggestion that AMD's vision came along after seeing nv's grid is one of them most idiotic things I've read in a long time. Maybe you could explain better what your cryptic message intended to convey if not that.

NVIDIA has beaten AMD to the market again though.... last times it was GPGPU and mobile.
Once again...

Ah but we won't know that until products are released. Guaranteed AMD didn't just whip up their unified gaming strategy in the month or 2 that nv announced grid. And Tegra has been pretty much a flop, delayed again and again, and nobody wants it. I could also write a long list of times AMD has beaten nv to market.

Can someone please explain to me exactly what cloud gaming entails? And why?

AMD is once again reactive, rather then proactive.

This is just off the top of my head....

GTX 6xx series launches, with a boost feature. Shortly thereafter, AMD comes out with a boost feature.

AMD Launches 7970 for $550. NVIDIA launches 680 for $500, AMD reacts with a price cut, and eventually an OC'ed 7970 GE to regain the title.

AMD claims Titan isn't a threat.... AMD is eventually launching 7990 to gain back the "World's Fastest Graphics Card" title. (15 months after the 7970 launched. ) Besides, 7990 isn't an answer to Titan, it's an answer to the 690. A single GPU card faster than Titan, would be an answer to Titan. Make sense?

Fermi brought a lot of compute power to graphics cards (GPGPU), AMD launches GCN with more compute power.

In AMD's conference call, they take a cheap shot at NVIDIA saying "We admire Nvidia's efforts in mobile" yet, AMD is just working its way into mobile.

AMD constantly talked about the The Way It's Meant to be Played program. They now have "Gaming Evolved"

NVIDIA announces Grid, now we get this announcement from AMD.

Do I need to go into the frame latency issues, which NVIDIA has been working on much longer than AMD?

Point is, AMD is once again reactive, rather than proactive.

I'm sure you will list some reasons where AMD launched products first, like the 5870....

lol, just lol. If that's what is on the top of your head, I won't even bother responding. Do a little research instead.

Its not so much a replacment for PC builders or PC gaming in general. It allows weaker devices to play games at IQ/speed the device could never do natively (phones, tablets, cheap laptops, etc).

Dont see what all the fuss is about.

Do a little research huh? AMD is once again just reacting to what others are doing.

I agree with you about Tegra being a flop and while Tegra 4 may be faster than Snapdragon 800, the power consumption is awful and that's why it won't be on smartphones and it will be mostly on tablets.
