AMD's money
Written by: darknatexs - 02:38 Jun-13-2018

AMD doesn't have the money Intel and Nvidia has. Lisa Su needed to bring in a lot of money fast. That's why the GPU stuff was spun off. Raja apparently wanted to make Radeon group a separate entity. Lisa did not. Even though Raja was in charge, 2/3 of Radeon group was dedicated to semi-custom jobs. Vega was made for Apple (because Apple realized that gpus are too hard to get into) and after it's texh would bleed into AMD's other gpus. Vega's timeline was all based upon Apple. Navi was started at the same time for Sony and is scheduled for a 2020 release. Lisa knowing this is then having the tech bleed over to the other 1/3 like Vega did to make it into a consumer product. That's why their schedule looks like it does. This also explains why Vega is what it is. Apple made plans and the software and hardware are made together. We know Nvidia doesn't like to do that because AMD became so far behind that they are positioned to do as they want and if you don't like it then you can go elsewhere.  Sony is in the position that they will get the product they want. Since it's custom, Microsoft is left guessing where to meet them.
