Project Quantum: AMD Explains Reason Behind Using Intel Chips
AMD has confirmed that it did use Intel chips for Project Quantum, and has explained why it did so.
When AMD announced Project Quantum PC system (powered by two new Fiji GPUs) during ‘New Era of PC Gaming’ event at E3, everyone was all praise for its product.
Later began a rather deeper examination of the machine with specific details emerging from tech and gaming sites. KitGuru revealed internal specifications of the powerful system: Asrock Z97E-ITX/ac motherboard with an Intel Core i7-4790K ‘Devil’s Canyon’.
This was sufficiently surprising for folks who know how serious competitors AMD and Intel are. And this compelled AMD to clarify its position. Which it did in a statement to Tom’s Hardware. The graphics card maker said that it felt customers would love to have Devil’s Canyon chip in the Project Quantum machine, and thus by incorporating the said chip AMD has valued customers’ demand.
According to AMD, via the news source, customers “want to pick and choose the balance of components that they want.” AMD believes its Project Quantum is certainly a machine which buyers would love to see as it has been made.
Moreover, the company has featured both AMD and Intel CPUs in the Quantum PCs, so everyone has something to cheer for — be someone adores AMD or is a fan of Intel.
AMD has scheduled Project Quantum PCs release in the autumn.
