Dont want to put too much into this... because I am enjoying my Wii U so much. So AMD pretty much came out recently and said they secured work for at least one new console. here is the link http://gamingbolt.co...ew-game-console and here is the actual quote....
"Speaking of future opportunities for AMD, Devinder Kumar, chief financial officer of AMD said, “I will say that one [design win] is x86 and [another] is ARM, and at least one will [be] beyond gaming, right. But that is about as much as you going to get out me today. From the standpoint [of being] fair to [customers], it is their product, and they launch it. They are going to announce it and then […] you will find out that it is AMD’s APU that is being used in those products.”
to me this screams Nintendo NX... I mean what other console manufactuer do we know is going to launch a new console (NX has been confirmed) I know all of them start working on their next one as soon as the current one is released. here is another link http://powerleveled....ing-processors/ and the quote
"The other thing I’ll mention in the semi-custom business which you probably picked up in the announcement that we had in October earnings call is we’ve been having a lot of interest in the semi-custom business, the semi-custom business is very unique, whereby it takes AMD’s core IP, we use it across market segments, across customers, across products, customer interest has been high and we projected earlier this year that we would have at least one to two semi-custom design wins and I’m pleased to report that we have those design wins, the work to design the products that has already started, the contract assigned and those parts get introduced in 2016.
We didn’t say at which space it is in. I’m not going to give too much detail. I’ll say that one is x86 and one is ARM, and atleast one will be on gaming, right. But that’s about as much as you going to get out me today, because the customers from the standpoint to be fair to them. It is their product. They launch it. They announce it and then just like the game console or the parts you find out that its AMD’s APU that’s been used in those products."
If you look at the bolded we can see where the Nintendo NX is the likely candidate. Iwata said we would get further info next year which is "2016". I could totally be wrong but I think AMD was talking about the NX here. What are you guys thoughts?
