Microsoft’s deal with AMD for Xbox One’s processor is worth more than $3 billion, a former AMD employee has revealed.
Bob Feldstein, former AMD vice president of Strategic Development, posted an entry on his LinkedIn profile revealing the value of the deal. “AMD provided a custom silicon solution to Microsoft for the Xbox One, a game console and entertainment device,” he wrote.
“My involvement was focused on business management and supply agreement negotiations. This required the coordination of multiple functional teams within AMD, as well as regular customer meetings with leadership teams responsible for handling the challenges of complex, multi-year deals. This project is valued at $3+B.”
AMD also supplies chips for both the PlayStation 4 and Wii U.
