Xbox One: AMD services have cost Microsoft $ 3 billion


Bob Feldstein, who previously held the position of vice president of strategic planning and business development at AMD , on his page on the social networking site LinkedIn reported a rather amusing information about the next-generation consoles Xbox One . According to him, the processor from AMD has managed to Microsoft more than three billion dollars.

Recall that at this point Mr. Feldstein is the Vice President of NVIDIA licensing issues. Looking back, I should mention that at the time Sony spent about 400 million dollars to build the processor Cell, which is a joint project of the Japanese giant companies with Toshiba and IBM. AMD and Microsoft, is likely to have signed such a multi-year agreement.

He also added that the AMD processor for Microsoft created to order, which is perfect for Xbox One, combines the communication and entertainment functions.

“The project required coordinated work of several teams within the camp AMD, as well as regular meetings with the client team leaders on whose shoulders lay the responsibility. The project is valued at more than $ 3 billion, “- said Bob Feldstein.

Recall that for the consoles Wii U and PlayStation 4 , AMD also took a hand. It should be noted that the heart has not yet been shown PlayStation 4 is based on the AMD chip microarchitecture, Jaguar, and Microsoft has not disclosed the details of a platform of Xbox One.

One thing is for sure – well, AMD managed to gain a foothold in the market of gaming consoles. It is hoped that the new APU Temash, Kabini and Richland , as well as next-generation consoles will significantly improve the position of the “white-green” .
