Maybe AMD should brand their own laptop and make it. Would be a niche system like a mac.clonazepam :Sorry, I had to thumb you down. Public perception has unchanged. The masses still consider an AMD system as a low price budget system. I doubt high priced AMD systems sell well, which is what actually determines what sort of products are released, not conspiracy theories.Intel paid off the OEMs to not get any good AMD products to the market - as always...
The ball is in AMD's court to overcome that.
I'd love to have one of their brand new APUs in a mobile form factor, but like many, I don't want to pay a lot for it.
Well, I think you're wrong. There are hundreds or even thousands of premium Intel laptop configurations available.
And how many are there from AMD? Pretty much 0.
Now let's assume 95% of all laptop-buyers hate AMD and only want to buy Intel laptops. So even if only 5% of the people would buy a good AMD laptop, it would be one of the best selling laptops out there. And trust me, even if it's the minority, still more than 5% of the people prefer AMD.
Just google and you will find forums with people looking for premium-ish AMD laptops - and not finding any.
In short: it would sell, even if it were slightly inferior to Intel counterparts (which it isn't), just because of many people preferring AMD.
Only the bad laptops make it to the market, because Intel makes sure to block the others off. Same for tablets, which AMD gave up by now.
As I understand it, both the XBOne and PS4 use six of the smaller "cat" cores or, now, the current iteration, Carrizo-L. What helps makes them potent is that they leverage H.S.A.
Screw you too, Intel (or any other company trying to smother competitors through uncompetitive practices). I decided to wait for Kaveri to get an APU notebook system, but have been unable to find a Kaveri fx-7600P based laptop ever since they launched last June. Now the FX-8800P isn't going to be available in the USA (at best we'll see some dumb $1400 system pairing it with a high-end dGPU). This is maddening. AMD needs to consider producing their own laptops, because *for whatever reason* OEMs aren't trying to make any money with AMD systems.
