Former Employee Reveals Xbox One APU Deal Is Worth $3 Billion To AMD

Former AMD vice president of strategic development and current Nvidia vice president of technology licensing, Bob Feldstein, revealed that the deal between Microsoft and AMD to supply the system-on-chip APU for Xbox One is worth more than $3 billion.

"AMD provided a custom silicon solution to Microsoft for the XBox One, a game console and entertainment device," Feldstein wrote on his LinkedIn profile.

"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 billion]."

After securing deals to develop CPUs and GPUs for Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo’s next-gen consoles, Feldstein left AMD in July 2012. A few months later, in January 2013, AMD accused him among several other executives of stealing more than 100,000 proprietary documents and electronic files before leaving for NVidia.

AMD's deal to provide the system-on-a-chip for Microsoft's Xbox One is worth more than $3 billion. That information comes from the LinkedIn profile of Bob Feldstein, former AMD vice president of strategic development and current Nvidia vice president of technology licensing. Feldstein left AMD in July of 2012, after handling the deals that found the company's silicon in the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U.
