AMD files a patent for its new Project Quantum

Four years ago, AMD announced that it is moving forward with its ambitious project quantum. But no news came out of the company with tech enthusiasts feeling almost sure that they all but shelves the project. But sources claim that the exact opposite is true. AMD has recently filled a patent, and the news is extremely juicy.

The latest patent shows some brand new features added in the project not to mention it has now an integrated PSU solution. This supposedly means that the intel’s rival was working behind the scenes on its project and soon plans on revealing it to the world.

As per the reports, the patent was approved on September 15, 2020, but was filled in the month of February.

AMD’s Richard Huddy in an interview with PCR magazine stated that “The interest we got immediately after E3 was very high, from journalists and consumers and OEM partners, I don’t know whether we have an OEM who is committed to building something like it. We built it as a concept PC, so like concept cars, it’s not usually practical to take it straight to market, that wouldn’t make a great deal of sense. But it’s not far from that.

I would think that if we have the right kind of conversations with some of these OEMs, then we might well turn it into a real product. In that case, it will probably be a very small number. Maybe only one or at most a handful of PC manufacturers who would bring that to market, potentially. It’s a custom piece, not a high volume piece, but it is a thing of beauty.”

To summarize the reason behind AMD not moving forward with the release of its project Quantum was simply that its processors were not powerful enough to drive their own machine.

In fact, the company even used Intel processors to power the dual Fiji GPUs in the machine.

The release of the device could mean that AMD would have to accept its failure against Intel. With Intel gaining a good amount of profit with every sale made by AMD.

But time has changed, and now AMD is not only Intel’s number one competitor but also is a leader in desktop-grade CPUs. The company’s Zen-based architecture chips have their own market value, and Project Quantum can now be developed with all AMD internals.

As of now, we know one thing for sure from this patent. The Project Quantum will almost certainly not be including the dual Fijis. The AMD RX 6000 series flagship GPUs are far better choice indeed, launching on October 28th.

Will the new Project Quantum be able to compete against Intel’s NUC? Let’s wait and find out.
