While i see how pointless the article could be if its not your cup of tea, its not for idiots who just read a title. The article cites sources..
If you include a GPU inside a CPU (like AMD did with their APUs and console chips), that includes the CPU+GPU segment, and those are in phones as well, which includes qualcomm, apple and samsung chips.
How can you include APUs in consoles but not the SoC in phones? Those are CPUs and GPUs as well. Even if they are smaller.
If AMD tomorrow stop selling dGPU, would they still not sell GPUs? They still, because those GPUs AMD are counting, are inside their APUs and custom chips.
So you can't eat the cake and leave it whole.
If they include the SoC market, that includes the phone makers. If they are not including SoC markets, they shouldn't include APUs and consoles. Just like they also include intel's mobile chips, there are also tablets with ARM chips which act the same.
This would be like talking about selling of CPUs and APUs, but not including nvidia's tegra chips, which are also CPUs, or IBM's power series or qualcomm CPUs etc.
