    Correct, the 300 series cards have their own hardware IDs. Though I don't know if Steam is IDing cards by hardware ID, or just reading what Windows and the device manager report.

    that gives them an extra 2 quarters of capital if they keep going down the road they are going. Which should be enough for Zen to come out.

    Did the acquisition of ATI help with the development of the GCN architecture?
    Wondering if this came about because of the diverse shared resources, and so the new move could be a mix of good and bad (positive accelerated development in some ways but may lose some of the insight that created a forward looking architecture).
    Cheers

    The Good. This should allow the graphics division to be more focused and more agile on producing new graphics products.

    The Bad (or good depending on how you look at it). This could make it easier for AMD to divest itself of the graphics division (unlikely). Or to divest itself of the CPU division (also unlikely). However, if fortunes continue to fall, it makes it easier for an interested buyer to make an offer for only the CPU or GPU division.

    Regards,
    SB

    SB, you're right. In fact such a reorganization and GPU consolidation would be a prerequisite for any divestiture/split. Yes, any such split does not make business sense to us since the CPU and GPU are so synergistic (and core to APU), but we're not the ones in AMD's boardroom unhappily rereading revenue statements and debt calendars. Was it really pure coincidence that Silver Lake's purchase of a 20% stake in AMD was happened simultaneously with the GPU division consolidation?

    A sign to watch out for: if Silver Lake puts one of its people on AMD's board.

    Isn't this board seat pretty much guaranteed for anyone with that much stock? Surely anyone would like to have some influence over the company they've bought a fith of

    Why are you posting as if Silver Lake purchased a 20% stake in AMD. That is only a rumor.

    I'm not sure why AMD hasn't tried to get out of the wafer supply agreements. I don't remember the terms of the spin-off deal with GlobalFoundries, but I don't think they were originally supposed to be tied together in perpetuity. If AMD could simply rely on Samsung and TSMC, it would probably make things easier. Of course, this is just a Digitimes rumor, and they're known for sometimes being nothing but a mouthpiece for Taiwanese companies, TSMC in particular.

    Might as well link to the source: http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20150910PD202.html
