AMD Has No Faith in Its Own Processors

/ 5 years ago


AMD had everyone excited up to their press conference where they presented us to the new Radeon R7 and R9 300 series as well as the new Fury, Fury X, and Fury Nano graphics cards. The event wasn’t very spectacular in itself, although everyone did get excited once the Fury’s were presented.

In the event was also the presentation of their Project Quantum gaming PC. A system smaller than most consoles, yet packing the power of two Fiji GPUs inside, quite possibly making it the most powerful gaming system built, at least in such a compact form factor.

The funny side of things comes when we look at the hardware specs on the system. We know that the graphics card is a dual-GPU Fury card, but the processor is an Intel i7 CPU. It seems that AMD doesn’t have enough faith in their own processor power to put them into a system like this. Either they’re not powerful enough and will bottleneck the huge amount of GPU power or they’ll run too hot for a compact system like this.

What the reason is, we don’t know. But it clearly shows that AMD needs to step up their game in the processor department too, because not using AMD hardware in an AMD designed and built system is pretty funny.
