AMD’s Project Quantum powered by Intel CPU

AMD’s Project Quantum powered by Intel CPU

Earlier this week AMD announced its new Radeon R300-series graphics card generation, the all new Radeon R9 Fury video cards and Project Quantum – a rather interesting concept PC, which features two Fiji video cards with HBM memory for never before seen levels of graphics performance.

It turns out that AMD’s Project Quantum, however, comes with a little dirty secret – the concept computer is not powered by an AMD CPU. Instead the oddly looking computer sports an Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell processor. The reason behind this choice is rather trivial – according to AMD the Core i7-4790K is a perfect CPU for gamers. Apparently the chip maker does not want to officially admit that its FX line of chips is slower than what Intel has to offer but this doesn’t really matter that much – gamers want performance and two Fiji cards with an Intel Core i7 chip seems to be the perfect combination no matter how you look at it.

Project Quantum also includes an ASRock-made mini-ITX motherboard, two half-height Crucial Ballistix DDR3 memory modules and an AMD-branded SSD. In addition there’s a custom-built Asetek liquid cooling solution, a large radiator and a single fan to cool the hardware inside.

Project Quantum will be on the market sometime this year. The price of the computer is unknown as of now but it will be high for sure.
