At the risk of not wanting to count chickens before they hatch, it's pretty hard to not be excited for AMD right now. For so many years, the company has struggled to increase its share value due to a lack of truly competitive products. However, this week, we've heard of two examples of how AMD could turn itself around, and the benefits are already materializing. A couple of days ago, we reported that AMD struck a deal to license its processor and SoC technologies so that Tianjin Haiguang Advanced Technology Investment Co., can create its own processors based on AMD's technologies.

This isn't a next-generation console we're talking about, but an incremental upgrade to the PlayStation 4 with a much beefier GPU capable of letting owners play games at a 4K Ultra HD resolution.This is based on unnamed developer sources who have apparently spoken with Sony on the matter, who then turned around and spilled the beans to Kotaku.
