wut?

the article mentioned an 80% increase in stock prices in the last year but failed to mention hardly 20% from when she was hired two years ago - less than average stock performance; using 12% annually.

i'd be earning A LOT more money myself if my performance metrics were measured like that.

You have to consider AMD like more entities. Gpu, cpu, servers, consoles. Gpu it's ok. Cpu are losing money, this is not new and it's well documented and expected. Servers are doing good, a big commission to China was posted a while ago. Consoles were losing money a while ago, but they managed to get the developers attention and getting a new commission for consoles 2.0, a bit less than 2 billion expected if I'm correct.

I don't like CEOs to earn a lot of money, I think they should earn a lot less, or paid if there is a good results. They are the head of a company, so if the company is not good it's their fault. Still, they have done some good move, like Radeon technology group and the users saw many improvement, first of all drivers.

You can't compare AMD to Intel o nvidia, they have quite a lot more money to spend in marketing and especially in R&D, but I like how AMD put a lot of effort in whatever they're doing,and bare in mind that they have to fight both competitors and many users that are just ignorant. It's not easy.

well fortuitously NO ONE is focusing on one aspect or comparing them to other companies.

i'm pretty sure that starving R&D could use 75K a year better - if there is a "spare" 75K.

Yep,
You can get more efficiency by undervolting RX 480.

RX 480 is on 14nm and new architecture ***?

You tell me.
Its pretty sad that they have fallen so far behind when they have been working on Polaris and Vega for years now, ready to launch the new cards with the new 14nm. And it match Nvidias older architecture on 28nm.

Somewhere they have messed up or is just incapable of keeping up anymore.
Efficiency for example is EVERYTHING in mobile. It means AMD will never match Nvidias top card since mobile have a watt limit.

Yea, that's the important thing to remember. RX 480's are sold out EVERYWHERE, and there was a lot of stock at launch. When was the last time that AMD had this much success with a product launch?

BINGO!

The RX 480 is doing what AMD hoped it would do. Their strategy was not to go head to head with nVIDIA on the highend. Their strategy is entirely focussed on VR (whether that is a good or bad idea is not up to me to decide). The first part of this strategy was LiquidVR and GPU Open followed by the Radeon Pro Duo and now the RX 480. AMD are looking to seed the market with the software solution... the developer hardware as well as a low cost solution in order to takeover the VR market during its onset. Guess what? It is working... and their stock price is in part reflecting the success of this strategy given that Wall St thinks that the VR market (they are betting on it even) will overtake Smartphones in sheer volume by 2020.

@ileakstuff, stop TROLLING, the gtx970 is about as driver optimised as its going to get, where as the RX480, will be FAR ahead of it in pretty much every game, when the drivers get more mature and i dont think, i KNOW you know this, so stop the trolling BS thumb.gif
