Between Financial Analyst Day 2015, their briefing on High Bandwidth Memory, and now a carefully seeded hardware sample to DICE developer and uber guru Johan Andersson, AMD is making sure that no one is left unaware that they will be introducing a new video card this quarter.

With both Computex and the AMD-sponsored PC Gaming Show taking place next month, June should be a busy time in the PC hardware industry.

    I'm confident AMD will come out with their GPU on time (relatively). It is the same manufacturing node, so there is no concern there.

    It is the CPU we're all doubting being anywhere near to on time or near set expectations. Show me stuff on the CPU and I would be impressed and excited. I'm not talking about Carrizo either. I would love to buy an AMD CPU to build around; please give me a reason. I hate to feel like I have to say this also: update your chipset. AMD has even less excuse to be so far behind in chipset features.

    For $59 you can get a 4 module 8 thread sort-of 8 core chip from Microcenter (counting the $40 off bundled motherboard) that can run very quietly at 4.3 GHz with a decent cooler. For certain workloads that's quite a value, even for a chip and chipset that old. Reply

    Time is ticking, and the value of AM3+ is falling off as fast as the GTX 970 flew off the shelves when it first came out. The three-part board design is unacceptable in 2015, the only valid reason for it being AMD's current financial situation. Between Vishera's IMC, power (and board) requirements, and the sheer age of the NB/SBs, there are a lot of sacrifices to be made for that budget value.

    The modernity of the Bolton FCH family is additional proof that even AMD stopped taking AM3+ seriously a long time ago, and is saving as much money as it can for Zen and the next generation of GCN. It's getting much harder to justify an AM3+ purchase; there is no doubt that some workloads favor Vishera's dollop of integer hardware, but that feature is about as relevant to most enthusiasts as FirePro's proprietary performance boosts are to gamers.

    Also, few people enjoy the privilege of living near a Microcenter.

    AMD's 390x is 20nm. Why do you think its over 9 months later than Nvidia's 900 series?

    It is 20nm, 250W, just as fast as the Titan X, but $200 cheaper, shorter and cooler.

    Who has a working 20nm process? GF? Reply

    IBM, Samsung, Intel and TSMC. Of those, only TSMC is commercial. It also offers about zero benefits over their HPM 28nm. Especially for large GPUs. Reply

    Nope. It's AMD's largest GPU ever designed. And, it's on 28nm. Reply

    Had there been a single AMD notebook with IPS screen, there would be a reason to buy one. Reply

    Yes, I'm very sure that the HP business laptops offer AMD APUs and have IPS displays. They also cost WAY to much. Reply

    I hope it got DVI, my screen only likes that. Reply
