nateman1352 links to an article at Tom’s Hardware which makes the interesting point that chip-maker AMD will offer Intel — rather than AMD — CPUs in their upcoming high-end gaming PC. (High-end for being based on integrated components, at least.) From the article: Recently, AMD showed off its plans for its Fiji based graphics products, among which was Project Quantum – a small form factor PC that packs not one, but two Fiji graphics processors. Since the announcement, KitGuru picked up on something, noticing that the system packs an Intel Core i7-4790K “Devil’s Canyon” CPU. We hardly need to point out that it is rather intriguing to see AMD use its largest competitor’s CPU in its own product, when AMD is a CPU maker itself. Read more of this story at Slashdot.
