PS4 launch game? It's been out for the PC

Well that technically doesn't stop it from launching with the PS4. tongue.gif

I think people are taking this too seriously. As a metaphorical/graphical representation of the potential of HSA and the new APUs I think it has some shortcomings, the same shortcomings inherent in any simplification of a complex topic. However, for what it is I thought it was decently well done.

Is it the best advertisement evar? no. But it certainly beats the typical commercial. I was at least mildly entertained.

Also, I wouldn't be so flippant about the 12 year olds, their parents have a respectable amount of purchasing power.

Yes this ad is insanely corny but its also like the first advertisement I've ever seen AMD really do so from a business standpoint I like that, they are trying to create a better image for themselves and get their product to be better known. Think back to the days when AMD had better performing CPUs than Intel, even shady business practices from Intel aside they still had a much larger market share because they advertised and people didn't know who or what AMD even was.

Long story short, for the price/performance the APU brings to the table it is VERY impressive and I think it deserves the attention, I myself would never use one in my own rig because my demands are much greater but for some 95%+ of users the APU is absolutely amazing and pretty much overkill.

(Before you start bashing me as an AMD "fanboi" My past few systems have all been Intel)

This so much, stop bashing on a commercial just because you think better resources etc elsewhere, marketing is a different department anyways. tongue.gif

The commercial is seriously good and something that will help AMD show its presence in a way that appeals to the mass market.

I do not like how they advertised Richland with that commercial...at all.

If they would actually ADVERTISE their APU's and explain why they're so impressive in a way consumers can understand it...They could make an absolute killing.

It's good to see AMD doing some more advertising. When most people (people who don't use OCN) need a cpu they jump straight to Intel, even if any pc made in the last 5 years will be more than enough power for them.
Hopefully they are not taking the money for ads like this out of their engineering and r&d budgets, I need to see some better crossfire drivers soon if they want to get any more money out of me.

So they should have made the slogan "Not as good as those $200 Intels!" then? It's advertising.

Funny, because their drivers are already pretty good..Equal to nVIdia's in my extensive experience with both companies.
If anyone needs to put effort into their drivers, it's Intel.

The G620 would not win outside of gaming, its CPU portion is destroyed by the A10-5800K in nearly everything....And a HD7770 alone costs as much as the APU alone, you could buy a cooler and a go for a slightly better motherboard with the difference the Pentium brings in, OC the A10 to 4.5Ghz or something and completely and utterly decimate it.

The AMD APU even wins in the Intel biased Sysmark and it's only at 3.8Ghz...That Pentium isn't going to clock very high.

Of course no one here seems to want to talk about those things.

The saddest bit about it is that the proof is already there and out, the FX is faster than its competing processor (The i5) in actual CPU intensive workloads which shows it pulls ahead when its 8 cores are used, and Crysis 3 shows games can make use of that...The i7 pulls ahead of the FX by like 20fps and the FX ahead of the i5 by like 5fps in Patch 1.3 going by results I saw somewhere in another topic.

Aside from the... Interesting... way they showed it, it actually is somewhat accurate of a CPU/APU's job. What they don't show is that it's a never ending battle, and any processes they finish will be back later.

Awesome!

Thanks!
