    AMD game console chip exec departs for NVIDIA

    This just reinforces the likelihood the GPU for the PS4 is going to be Nvidia, not AMD/ATI. Sony may not be totally happy with their working relationship with Nvidia but with Maxwell not far away, they are the only real powerhouse GPU choice.

    AMD game console chip exec departs for NVIDIA

    The executive at AMD chiefly responsible for getting the company's graphics chips inside the Xbox 360 and the Wii game consoles has now left the company. The Wall Street Journal reported today that Bob Feldstein departed the company on Friday and came to work for one of its biggest rivals, NVIDIA, this week.

    The story states that Feldstein previously worked at ATI before AMD acquired the company in 2006. By then, ATI had already signed deals with Microsoft and Nintendo to bring a version of its Radeon graphics chips to the Xbox 360 and Wii game consoles, respectively.

    Feldstein, who had the official title of corporate vice president of business development while at AMD also reportedly has signed a deal with Nintendo to put a Radeon-based chip inside the upcoming Nintendo Wii U console. The story adds that he also secured similar deals for the next game console from Sony and Microsoft, even though neither company has commented publicly on their next-gen game console plans.

    His new role at NVIDIA will be as its vice president of technology licensing. You can bet that NVIDIA, which got its GeForce chip inside the Playstation 3, would like to have its hardware inside future game consoles as well.

    So...... The point is they are following the man who signed the deal. I see allegedly similar deals have been made (though honestly who else would be supplying the chips?) but I'm lost as to how this shows NVIDIA chips winning the hot seat for PS4.

    Agreed, I don't see how can they draw such conclusion from this. PS4 & Xbox 720 could both be running on AMD graphic cards for all we know.
