    Maybe they weren't BSing with the whole highly scalable mantra. Huge news for AMD non the less, considering both Nvidia and Intel failed to get any traction in mobile space.

    It's even bigger news given that AMD exited GPU IP licensing business ages ago.

    Literally the last thing I'd ever expected them to do

    I'm pretty sure it says
    That's a very-very clear statement

    True. But AMD has yet to tell everybody what is exactly RDNA compared to GCN (or what defines GCN for that matter.... :rolleyes:)

    Actually I'm pretty sure it wasn't many gens ago when AMD said they'd be willing to license their graphics IP out, not just do semi-customs. Also there were rumors about Samsung licensing AMD gfx IP already in 2016.

    I run several & many gaming rigs. A mismatch of sockets, memories, cards, etc.

    And I prefer AMD's Radeon Driver Suite over Nvidia's Geforce Experience. It is just a better over-all experience(installing/uninstalling. And as new games have to be patched on (again) several different gaming systems, for each patch/release, things seems to be much smoother of an experience with AMD. Nvidia driver's always messed with audio & other system set ups, etc. It never use to be this way 5-6 years ago Nvidia had much polish and solid stuff. I would like to add that nVidia's driver package's intrusive nature, is off-putting. AMD's driver suite is inviting and welcomed.

    My perspective.

    super-SIMD...
    Meaning it can do both GCN and/or RDNA simultaneously... similar in concept to what a-sync compute is, but for libs.

    GCN compute + RDNA = Navi.
