AMD Project Quantum to have a range of CPU options

Last week news spread that AMD would be using an Intel Core i7 processor for its Project Quantum. There was some ridicule about this as it's pretty odd to see AMD using a chip from its rival and now the firm has issued a clarification for Tom's Hardware.

AMD says they're using Intel CPUs because that is what customers want, but the messages mentions that there will be a range of technology options for CPU in Project Quantum. The firm has prototypes based on both AMD and Intel processors but doesn't say whether the final retail version will include its own processors. Instead, AMD points to the Radeon Fury as the real star of the show:
We have Quantum designs that feature both AMD and Intel processors, so we can fully address the entire market. I'm sure you've heard AMD leaders speak before about how we're driving growth in the company and our key businesses, and that one of the key strategies we have for doing that is listening to customers.

You may have heard at the recent AMD financial analyst day that Lisa Su described Job #1 as "Build Great Products." In the case of buyers for systems like Project Quantum, there is a clear preference for choice; they're not interested in a narrow range of computing solutions - they want to pick and choose the balance of components that they want, that are hand-tailored in a world of off-the-rack-suits.

With a product as compelling as R9 Fury, we are extremely pleased to enable as much success as we can. There is a range of technology options for CPU in Project Quantum… but the real star is Radeon Fury.
