    By time these Puma core chips released they'll already be obsolete because AMD will be putting the final touches to it's successor while still developing Puma's successor successor if that makes sense.

    I think people that buys a console does not care about it having the latest chip in the market, just think in gaming. If consoles will be waiting for the last technology they would be waiting forever to release a product. So what is the point of this article demeaning consoles ? demeaning AMD?

    A lot has been put lately into AMD providing the chips for the next gen consoles (and how powerful they are), so I'd have to say this article is pointing out that AMD is not resting on its laurels? What I got from it was that AMD's next iteration of mobile APUs has some serious potential to put better mobile PC gaming in our hands next year. Didn't seem demeaning at all, really... Just another confirmation that PC gaming is superior to consoles ;)
