We've just reported on the new mysterious 'JM601' GPU from NVIDIA, which could be a new dual-GPU or the new Pascal GPU, but now it's time for some Team Red rumors.
A new entry on Zauba has been spotted as a "PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY-AMD MAGNUM FPGA PROTOTYPEBOARD FOR DTV P/N .102-B25432-00 (FOC)". Now, some of you have probably spotted what I'm about to point out, but the 'DTV' part of that stands for 'Digital Television'. A DTV-capable device from AMD might be an NVIDIA Shield competitor... or something completely different.
I think we could see a console from AMD, something that would be capable of playing PC games at 1080p 60FPS - but more importantly: VR. If AMD can release a modestly priced console that is capable of VR gaming, it could be a very exciting step in a new direction for AMD - especially with all of the struggles of splitting into Radeon Technologies Group, and losing its chief CPU architect to Samsung.
