    I think the GPU's and all graphics cards are small segment from their business. They are not the smartest company for only selling cards, correct me if I'm wrong.

    More accurately, consumer GPUs aren't all of their business. GPUs for supercomputing are huge right now, and expensive.

    That's called blindsided by Intel.
    I believe that when I see that but it happens so far-their CPU is a different story.
    AMD should be the one crying fowl but we got their surrogate to do that instead-not surprised here.
    Unfortunately AMD fell on their sword and let Nivida go straight over them.

    I don't think we've seen Ryzen/TR have their full impact yet.

    The reviews on the Vega FE aren't that impressive basically 1070 level iirc the future doesn't bode well considering Volta is around the corner.

    Having to split major R&D bucks between CPU and GPU is clearly not a sustainable model for competitiveness with market leaders who only need to invest in just one of those areas hence why Nintendo had to ditch it's 3 generation long partner to go with nVidia because AMD didn't have anything that could compete tdp to perf with the 920mx which is like 550 gflops fp32 for only 16w tdp and that is last gen hardware!

    Thought that had more to do with a different direction in form factor, but point taken. I'd be interested to see if XBox and PS products make a similar switch from AMD APUs in the future.

    Game consoles aren't as worried about Watt to Perf ratios since they have more cooling real estate and don't have to worry about battery life, IMO the focus there is more like cost to perf with an emphasis on total cost which I doubt nVidia will be willing to race to the bottom with AMD on

    They know what happens after they choose Nvidia (monopoly). But if one becomes greedy to bite Nvidia's offer then 2nd willjump too and oh, boy.

    Also iirc both xbox and playstation divisions got burned dealing with nVidia reaping all the benefits of die shrinks and not passing cost savings down the line

    That makes sense. The good news is consoles are still big sellers so AMD's got a decent income stream from that to play with.
