AMD: Nvidia is ‘Bitter’ Over PS4 Snub

Maximum PC: "From insisting that it was the one who dumped Sony to taking a jibe at the Playstation 4’s AMD supplied custom APU, Nvidia has been behaving a lot like a jilted lover ever since the Japanese company unveiled its eighth-generation console last month. But what does archrival AMD, which currently enjoys a near-monopoly in the console market, have to say about why it was chosen ahead of Nvidia for Sony’s next-generation console?"

Ohhhhhh! You gonna just let AMD say that about you Nvidia?

KingPin1131d ago

actually i would say nvidia is bitter over console snub. didn't the big three all go with AMD?

also nvidia hasnt done this much trash talking before. insecure much?

tachy0n1130d ago

why would nvidia be insecure? lol nvidia already knows pretty much everything about AMD technologies thanks to the many documents they posses from AMD!!

KingPin1130d ago

they insecure coz now they trying to tell people not to buy consoles. consoles were never meant to be superior than high-end pcs so why is Nvidia running their mouth like AMD tech is useless. if it was as bad as nvidia says, i think nobody would have used it in their consoles.

thing is, if nvidia were confident they would tell people why their tech is superior, not why you shouldn't buy the competitors products. and saying things like "Next gen consoles are low-mid range pcs" doesn't help their cause.

that would be illegal and they probably did do that as they hired quite a few top level amd staff several months before the release of the 7000 series

Sure doesn't look like they are bitter to me. Making console GPUs can be a gamble. They did not want to gamble and moved on with current projects that would have lost reasources if they made the console GPUs. Bitter? More like Business.

KingPin1130d ago

how would it be a gamble?
Chip manufacturers make profits from the get go. and its not like they had to open up a whole new R&D department or anything.

at the end of the day, they lost out.

There is nothing cryptic about what I said. I clearly explained why they chose not to go with next gen consoles. Now read beyond the bandwagon material shoveled at you from this website. http://www.kenkotech.com/nv...

(Nvidia's VP of content and tech) "If we say, did a console, what other piece of our business would we put on hold to chase after that?" he tells the game site." - That alone summarizes what I clearly said and answers what you clearly did not get.

damage control my friend. thats all that is.

they had me when they said
"Didn't want to do the business at the price those guys [Sony] were willing to pay."
that i could understand.

but then they come out and say this
http://www.gamemunition.com...

comparing a console to a thousand dollar graphics card. $1000. people don't even pay half of that for a console. remember what happened to the $500 PS3? doom and gloom.

and how many people will buy that oh so powerful card that they spent money creating? 2% of the pc gamer community? thats more of a gamble than actually putting GPUs in consoles.

guess nvidias wild spins seem to be working on you.
unfortunately for them, i can see through the bullsh!t.

oh and just before you start assuming im an AMD fan i should let you know that its not like i have a hatred for no reason against nvidia. they do make quality products. i can fully agree with that. but they shouldn't be bitter. they didn't wanna do business with console manufacturers, they shouldn't be down-talking the opposition that grabbed the opportunity.

The 7000 series is incapable of any error.
