It is quite concerning to me that the much-vaunted “special inside look” into the AMD GPU roadmap for 2016 features better… tonemapping.
…Yes I’m an Nvidia fan but healthy competition is always good, hence my concern with AMD CPUs and GPUs. Pundits should note that AMD GPU purchases, prior to Maxwell, have also been strongly driven by cryptocurrency mining, but Maxwell equalises that playing field so AMD CPU has got to go against 14nm Intel Skylake, Kaby Lake etc. and AMD GPU has got to go against <20nm (AFAIK) Nvidia Maxwell, Pascal, etc. CUDA for better or worst is still ahead of OpenCL and only gaining lots of momentum.
As for ARM that will now start to chew on the bottom end of things but Nvidia is already poised with K1 and X1 plus tons of competitors with their own GPU solutions.
I am quite concerned about AMD at this point in the game. They have always presented reasonable or very good alternatives to Intel and Nvidia but this tussling match, much enjoyed in the past, may be coming to a one-horse-race.
