    They are more experienced in the integrated gpu and SoC market. Not really a bad thing considering the recent deals AMD cut with Intel, Sony, Tesla, and Microsoft. Not sure how this will pan out in the consumer gaming graphics market. AMDs current architecture is more capable of dealing with modern graphics APIs and that adoption is happening more and more every year.

    So...what is this all about? What does it mean for me?
    Lol, nothing much.

    AMD is doing really well in the cheaper laptop and office computers which is great since we need more than a single source of GFX cards. It is also doing well in the lower gaming cards and while not great at least acceptable for the more expensive cards.

    2 successful GFX card manufacturers means cheaper and better cards then if there were just 1, that is what it means. It also means you get more models to choose from.

    Hiring new executives to replace one who left isn't really a bad thing to do, but I don't think it justifies the title of this thread.

    I have tried AMD once in my Life (CPU and GPU) going for Cheaper instead of Quality. Never again!

    Intel may cost a little more but the quality far outshines AMD.

    To me, Intel > AMD!  Always! I will never touch an AMD product again.

    Have fun with your Intel integrated graphics.  Hope you don't get ideas about playing games on it.  On the bright side, Intel graphics have improved enough that they can usually display the desktop pretty well.  They used to struggle with that.

    Right now AMD processors are much better than Intel in regards to Meltdown and Spectre. With the patches planned for Intel CPUs, they will see performance drops. Saying you built a cheap machine and got a cheap result doesn't say much to me. It would be difficult to even tell if it was the processor that caused the issues you were experiencing.

    I've always liked the AMD machines I've built. 

    That being said, it isn't about brand loyalty. It's about putting together the best machine you can while staying inside your budget.

    Sometimes that's AMD, sometimes it's not. Just depends on what is available and what the market is doing at the time your looking to build.

    In general, I've seen more issues with specific AIB providers than I have any GPU provider (and that goes clear back to the Matrox/CirrusLogic/3DFX days).

    Same thing with CPUs - I have had more issues with specific motherboard manufacturers than I ever had with any of the x86 providers - including some Cyrix 486 chips back in the day.

    AMD canceled the driver path for Primitive Shaders, that's totally upping their game, yup!
