AMD On Building Custom Silicon For New Consoles

AMD claims that Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft had no idea that they were all to be AMD powered until they were launched. That's odd, I wonder how we knew that two years ago?

Moshkelani wouldn't get into the details of the differences between the chips he built for the consoles. Instead, he talked about how AMD developed custom silicon for each and the necessity of secrecy in the process. In fact, Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft had no idea that they were each going to the AMD well to get silicon for their next-gen platforms until they were announced.
