No plans to make an actual product
The tech press became rather excited last week when Intel started showing off a new GPU with some even claiming it would change the industry. It turns out that Intel has no real interest in changing the industry for now.
We shouldn't be surprised, but GPU sales have skyrocketed over the last few quarters. Our colleagues from the press have criticized AMD for Radeon Vega, but AMD sold every single one. Once the market sucked all Radeons, it went for Geforce GTX 1060, 1070, 1080 so pretty much anything that can mine well.
Without pointing any fingers and naming any names, Fudzilla had confirmation that Raja Koduri's successor to run the graphics side of the business will come from outside of AMD.
Way too early for that
Sorry to disappoint AMD fans but the new_chip.gfx10.mmSUPER_SECRET.enable [0: 0] is not Navi, as that is unlikely to show in 2018.
Ampere and the gaming GPU
There have been many reports that Nvidia’s next generation technology will be codenamed Ampere and we want to set one thing straight. The successor of Volta is an AI/ML chip and not a GPU - just like Volta never was.
Listed as the GFX10 architecture
A reference for AMD's upcoming Navi GPU has been spotted in latest Linux drivers.
AMD and Nvidia game market share
Overall GPU shipments increased 9.3 percent from last quarter, AMD increased eight percent, Nvidia rose 30 pe cent and Intel, increased by five percent, according to figures from Jon Peddie Research.
They are supposed to be for workstations
Nvidia has started enforcing a measure that requires its distribution partners to stop shipping GeForce cards to server and high-performance computer (HPC) clients.
Crypto GPU market here to stay
AMD and Nvidia are heavily profitinging from the crypto market right now. Today, a few quarters into the whole Bitcoin and Ethereum, it looks like the cryptocurrencies are here to stay.
