Leading the way into DirectX 11.
AMD didn't have the best financial news to report, as it went through another third quarter loss, but its graphics division did have some good news. Revealed at the same time as the financials was that AMD has shipped over 25 million DirectX11-capable ATI GPUs since introduction in September 2009.
The added competition from Nvidia may have played a part in ATI's revenue down 11 percent over the previous quarter, but things are still up 33 percent year-over-year.
The ATI division's operating income was $1 million, compared with $33 million in Q2-10 and $2 million in Q3-09.
AMD will hope to increase that number of DirectX 11 Radeon HD GPUs sold, as it will be unveiling new products this week. Stay tuned!
