About 6 months ago I would have stood on a box and preached big Pascal first, and I did a few times to be honest. However, that has changed and I really don't know. I wouldn't be surprised if Nvidia, and Intel, just waited on AMD's move.
This year is going to be big for AMD, really big, either make or break them. Knowing that, the current market leaders might hold back until they know exactly how to respond. There is no reason AMD couldn't come out and knock them on their ass this year. They have to recognize that, and should be setting themselves up to handle a strong AMD.
I literally have MASSIVE amounts of faith in Jim Keller and his team. For how long have a bunch of us on this forum been talking about AMD just needing to commit the money. They have the brains, they just didn't use their money to fund those brains. Well, they finally did!
Let's shoot for the stars! AMD has done it once, they can do it again!
