AMD files suit against nVidia for stealing PlayStation 4 secrets?

If rumours are true, AMD is fighting head on with arch rivals nVidia over leaked documents which former AMD employees took with them while jumping ship to their rival video card manufacturer. A report by Engadget states that AMD has filed suit against four of its former employees, claiming that they joined nVidia along with thousands of confidential documents which included sensitive information regarding tech being used in the next-gen consoles, etc.

The lawsuit is filed against former VP of AMD’s AMD’s Strategic Division, Robert Feldstein, who played a pivotal role in developing custom hardware for game consoles like the Xbox 360, Wii, and Wii U. The company also claims that he, along with three others transfered over 100,000 files that contained trade secrets related to development, based on “forensically-recovered data” that indicates the executive used external storage devices on his company computer before his departure. Feldstein and Richard Hagen, another AMD executive are also being accused of luring others to Nvidia.

This comes as a body blow to AMD as they saw nVidia being muscled out of the next-gen consoles if reports are to be believed. However, their new-found data can help nVidia bounce back from their woes.

  1. in my opinion,whoever is going to support the playstation 4 with the graphics card should do his best..because the best graphics should be made for the best console ever.

  2. see why are you bagging on nvidia its was amd employees that did it and a ps4 this early would be pointless anyway as they still have bugs in the ps3 servers and need to figure out how to get rid of those stupid fucking hackers

  3. amd has always been better when it comes to 3d graphics but nVidia has been better for multimedia but when most people buy a console they buy if for the games not cuz it will play blueray movies. u can get a blueray player for 100 bucks while the ps3 was 600 bucks so it only makes sense the consoles should have amd video cards

  4. well one thing for sure wait for Xbox since everyone think their soooo good besides their the woman lol let them be first again because after all we came first with ps2 then here comes the 360 a year ( or month but who gives a jelly) but yea let lady micro go first . THEN BAM!!!! 3 YEARS LATER PS4!!!

  5. Let micro soft go first besides , all those micro soft D**** riding mofo’s think sony suck .
    but PS2 came and bam here comes 360 then some months later they get a crapy online server thinking the own ish . so just wait on lady Micro soft .. AND then analyse their crap and pleease dont cop anything like theirs they swear eveything sony makes we still from them just get ideas and make it better
