Re: A Play Problem

Declarer then leads a heart and overtakes West's jack with the queen.

Fouled board, or fouled description? Who has the Queen of Hearts?

That said, playing low on the first Heart was an error, so is playing the King. [more]

Re: $4.04

Tempted to take a little off the table or at least set a stop loss. This can't go forever.

No or, and. Take some off the table, and set a stop loss on the remainder. Remember that Bernard Baruch famously said he got rich by [more]

Re: Not just Sony

I disagree with the above because it is such a risky move. You are talking totally new CPU IP + new GPU IP + new process + new interconnect + etc. Also, you are talking a huge die. That's just asking for trouble.

Sigh! You are [more]

Re: Not just Sony

Since this is an investing board, let's ask an investing question:

What kind of revenue do you expect AMD to be getting from these systems that are not available to anyone but select few? Anything that will substantially affect

Re: Not just Sony

Magic! Sony will put $800 worth of silicon (2 Zen dies, Polaris & HBM2) into a $300 console.

Not this year or next, but eventually these SoC systems will be inexpensive enough for Sony.

Re: Not just Sony

Servers are CPU only. Consoles are APUs with much of the die dedicated to graphics (1). There is no way server chips will work for consoles.

You forget the magic world of HBM memory. The memory, CPU and GPU (if present) chips all ride [more]

I tried to bring clarity to ambiguous statements. My mistake...

Not a mistake really I'm just trying to clarify where I am coming from, and how it differs from your perspective. If your perspective is a consumer customer, that's fine, [more]

Re: Nvidia Pascal

Wayne, I don't know why you constantly try to misunderstand what I say. AMD participates in several markets other than consumer computers. I happen to be very interested in AMD's HPC offerings. It is possible that AMD will use this news conference to [more]

Re: Nvidia Pascal

I also expect that Polaris 10 with GDDR5x will not be among them. Why? AMD may prefer to wait for faster GDDR5x parts to become available

So no HBM1 option?


If so, it will be a rebadge of Fiji, I hope with eight high [more]

Re: Nvidia Pascal

AMD has (quietly) announced the non-Polaris mobile 400 series parts. I'm sure all the ODMs and laptop OEMs have a version which includes the mobile Polaris parts. (Probably one or two Polaris chips: [more]

Re: Nvidia Pascal

I have to agree with Wayne on this. Right now Pascal has announced release dates and Polaris only has rumors, with other rumors that Albatross, er, GloFo is having trouble getting satisfactory FinFet yields. As I understand it (and I could be [more]

Re: AMD Polaris

Sony will be producing a new console this year, using an AMD APU with Zen (lite?) cores and Polaris 10 graphics.

The lite? part. You can Google for Sony and Polaris and get lots of hits, for example: [more]

All the major sites have cards to review. They were given the cards at the press event. The NDA expires May 17, ten days before they go on sale. This is fairly standard in the industry, and is how Nvidia has handled most major launches in the past [more]
