We talk to AMD about their new Market Share Lead

FusionRecently we talked to you about AMD and their reaction to the GTX 460 as well as a PR Spin e-mail that we received. At the time we were invited to speak with AMD about their newly gained market share. This was an offer that we took them up on. After all the e-mail was odd enough that is piqued our interest.  For the sake of coherence we are reprinting part of the e-mail here.

Is AMD getting nervous again?



GeForce_GTX_460_3qtr01Has AMD reached a point where they can no longer count on nVidia's bungling? Are we seeing a return to an even playing field after a year of failure from the green team? We know that AMD has a great GPU in the Radeon 5000 series GPUs, but are they ready to face head to head competition? Time will certainly tell on this one, but there are some very telling indicators that things might not be all sunny now that box sides have a DX11 GPU.

Are IGPs all Bad?

Aperture_ScienceYou have heard me say that today’s IGPs (Internal Grpahics Proccesors) are not for gaming. I have made sure that I qualify that and say that they are not for high-end gaming and that you cannot use them as such. But, am I right? I know that you cannot play a game like FarCry 2 and that even SIMS 3 bogs them down, but is that a fair representation of all of them? I have a feeling it is not. Where did I get this feeling? Well while I was playing around with the little H55N-USB3 I got a weird thought in my head. Maybe it was from watching the Portal2 trailer again, or maybe it was just one of those times when I really think about what I am doing and if I am giving the whole picture.  With that thought in mind I installed the original Portal and wanted to see what I could get from it.

11-stalker-5870Wow! Another product gets stripped from the safety of its box and shoved into one of my test benches. This one is a GPU destined for BSN, but will probably end up getting some commentary here as well. It is the Asus EAH5870 S.T.A.L.K.E.R.  Call of Pripyat Edition. We got this back in that big delivery the on the 9th and have just freed up the GPU testing station for its arrival. So let’s take a quick look at the box, the goodies and the card itself.
