**NExt gen Console ALL ARE AMD.
Console sales compared to computer hardware sales are quite small. And from the huge, expensive chips in the consoles AMD is getting $60-$100 each. The console deals are more about getting AMD tech out there than profit.
**AMD architecture is going to be utilized better.
Jaguar will be utilized better. Multithreading improvements will help pretty much every CPU people are buying these days. And this only applies to gaming, a relatively small market on the PC side of things.
**Macpro is being Equip with Firepro GPUs.
And a 12-core IB-EP CPU.
But the adoption rate for the mac pro among serious power users and enterprise class consumers is likely going to be very small. It just doesn't provide the same features as competing products.
**APUs are selling well.
Your best buy desktop is dying, workstations don't use APUs, gamers do not buy them most of the time and the market where they should be selling well (laptops and similar devices) is dominated by intel's offerings with much more attractive products being produced with intel chips in them.
**Next AMD GPU is going to destroy Nvidias counter part.
Very unlikely, especially with Titans and 780s getting a voltage boost above 1.3v. Are you sure you want to bet that a 9970 will destroy a 1300MHz Titan? For example the fastest non LN2 7970 in the valley thread is a matrix card at 1375MHz. It gets beat by 49% by a 1330MHz Titan. No hardware mods. No extreme cooling. Just a watercooled Titan.
**Most of new games are going to be AMD Gaming Evolved.
Since when? Future ubisoft Titles are Nvidia title' and so on. Watch dogs for example. What confirmed gaming evolved titles do we even have? Even BF4 atm runs better on NV than AMD.
Anyways I don't really even know why AMD is an issue in this thread. They don't have any consumer CPU that doesn't get beat by at least 50% by IB-E. Steamroller FX isn't coming for ages if at all and even then it wouldn't be even nearly enough. Right now the latest info is no new AMD high end CPUs in 2014. That means that by the time they are ready to release something, intel will have produced a consumer CPU over twice as fast as AMD's most powerful chip.
