In the long run doesn't AMD have a funding advantage over Nvidia?
Since AMD owns the console market and has a successful CPU division can't they afford to weather a less profitable GPU division vis-a-vis Nvidia? Although I suppose fighting Intel on the one hand and Nvidia on the other is almost like fighting a two front war.
Well I see it different as it's very easy for a console player to jumper over now to AMD's other platform which is PC with baseline 2200G all in one package as you start a build or just nice sound build running a Ryzen 5 1400 paired with that $129 RX 570 4Gb with games .
As i been around since 2002 and jumped ship many times and it took awhile to get 1080p and now working DX 12 and Valkan as it is always been about pushing the eye candy and not the speed as 60fps has always been enough , but it was more about how much load can 60fps really do as they add more and more = DX 12 and Intel will want to enter where AMD has helped them understand APU's and lower end as it's enough to make a knee move as it's a sound martket to me as AMD did what to other two can't show yet = balance the two going forward with chipsets and cheaper fabs .
AMD did some mistakes on console, they did not work with Microsoft & Sony to make the lock down "API works or game works" to negatively impact Nvidia in PC game. They also only make console 8 cores (with 6 cores for games), thats why most game are fine with 6 cores, it never really bring out the Ryzen 1700/2700 core advantages in games.
