Poor Roy. After working at Nvidia he must still be in a state of shock at the difference in competence of management between the two companies.
He does sound pissed. I am guessing he was up for some huge promotion at NV and didn't get it so he called AMD and they offered him way more $ and he booked it. Those employees are the best to hire because they have a vendetta against their former employer and will work twice as hard to bring them down when they switch sides. :biggrin:

He can work 4 times harder and it wont matter with the level of idiocy in the management surrounding him at AMD.

If thats teh case, then he is more a liability than an asset.

And looking on his comments, I expect he will have a short career at his current job.

LMAO. Epic hate much?

Epic Price? For sure. 100% agreed.
Size is an issue? Why?
Epic performance for a single GPU. That's what it is.

Coordinator: "your next question comes from [journalist A], go ahead."

[journalist A]: "Yeah, just one last question on Titan, and a fairly pointed question. Do you concede that in a couple of weeks' time, you probably won't have the single fastest GPU in graphics?"

Roy: "How can we possible concede to what actually hasn't been delivered?"

[journalist A]: "Obviously, you know a fair bit of what's going on, do you believe that in a couple of weeks you'll still have the fastest single GPU? Let's flip the question around."
Darren: "I think what matters for end users, is the graphics card. And that's what ASUS' ARES II delivers. I see absolutely no threat to the ARES II's market position right now…"

[journalist A] (interrupting): "…with all due respect, I'm not asking that question about the world's fastest graphics card. I'm asking about the world's fastest single-GPU graphics card?"

Roy: "I don't think we can comment until we've seen it. Based on what we know so far, I don' think that this (GeForce Titan) is a threat to our business."
Stuff like this really pisses me off.

Nvidia are presenting a very strong single GPU solution in to the market and some gamers want that, after the 5970 I won't be going back to dual GPU solutions, it's just not a great gaming experience and it's not worth the effort to get it working "smoothly".

So I'm extremely interested in things like the single fast-as-hell GPUs that deliver huge performance, I want to know what AMDs answer to the titan will be.

They avoid the question, the caller then re-words it so they can't worm out of it, and they do anyway. And then they leave off with a comments which DOES NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION, saying it's not a threat to their business is not what was asked.

I'd have much more respect if they simply said, we don't know solid figures yet but it's possible the Titan will take the single GPU performance crown, we have no intention to respond with an equivalent product until late 2013 or 2014.

The answer they gave just makes me mad, I'm not a fanboy of either camp, and sure Nvidia do this as well, I'm so sick of it, just zero fucking respect. It's obvious they're squirming in their pants over possible competition, just be bloody honest for once.

They avoid that question like the Ebola virus. Like any PR guy would I suppose.

Da hell is this? A product is a failure because you don't want to buy it? I'd hate to see your reaction if a girl turns you down, woof!

It's nice to know what AMD's strategy is though. It will be interesting to see how their mature drivers, their hardware strengths, much more aggressive developer relations, impressive game bundles effect the market place in 2013.

Every time I glance VC&G, Roy's statement reads like:

GK110 - that which is not of this world

Like we are dealing with Progenitor Cores or at least HAL 9000...

once again great marketing... in opposite direction

AMD fanboys are vultures. You can't expect cheap Titans when competitor gives rebrands. :awe:




Stop your trolling. Continuing to post only your anti-AMD sentiments at every turn will result in your being removed.

This is a video card forum not an anti-AMD forum

Wait, are you trying to say that nVidia doesnt rebrand? They rebrand cards every single year, just like AMD. Just go look up the GT620 for the most recent entry.

He's a severe fan who looks forward to AMD fan suicides according to him.
Needs a bit of help, methinks.

54 posts and every single one of those is loaded with NV fanboy propaganda or dissing AMD at any opportunity. What was the point of you joining our forum again? :colbert: They are plenty of other places for you to join like Semi-Accurate or Fudzilla if all you ever intend to post are comments related to AMD fanboys and taking jabs at them. Plenty of forum members disagree with each other here but they don't troll at every opportunity.

Quoted from the interview
I see absolutely no threat to the ARES II's market position right now…
What market position? There's a thousand of them and I just checked Newegg and it says, "OUT OF STOCK". The only market Ares II has right now is the USED market as far as I can tell.

Are they hoping to float on the back of the <1000 consumers with Ares II in their machines as hype for the company?

Quit deflecting and trying to point at Ares II. It's about pointless to bring it up.

Wise? PR? I'm not seeing it!

To me, it looks like they got the people asking the questions off of their back for that immediate moment. People will then realize later how silly it all sounds to keep deflecting to Ares II and its market. What market?

Jedi Hand Wave,

"Titan, it's not the card you're looking for."

Oh well, what card am I looking for? ---->>>> *points* Ares II market

The Titan looks pretty good for the prosumer market, mainly just because of 6GB of ram. Might be very useful for Adobe products...

I don't see how nvidia can sell this without cutting into quadro or tesla sales.

Still, not a market AMD really needs to address, I don't think the $1000 video card market is high volume enough to really matter, this is just the tail end of nvidia's business market.

I found the constant reference to Ares II pathetic to be honest... Like others said, these are the kind of replies you would expect from Nvidia

I mean, sure Titan might not compete with anything AMD has in price/performance, but they specifically asked "Do you acknowledge Nvidia will have the fastest single gpu card? Yes/No?" and they still refused to answer, wow

Not sure how this is good PR in any way, makes them look like a bunch of idiots
