Thanks for all the attention I earned unvoluntarily. :toast:
But I didn't deserve. Didn't realize that this might bother some eurocom enthusiasts. So I've to apologize as I didn't want to offend anybody.
On the other hand one could get the feeling stirring up a hornet's nest.
If not sharing an opinion which wasn't meant that serious why this overreaction?

Besides: there's nothing wrong with the "Euro" except transforming Europe in a dictatorship.
But this was only metaphorical. And if Taiwan would be tagged "oriental" it could be signed as well as Eskimo. 16% of AMD/ATi is owned by Mubadala Development Company.

So I still wonder what about:
3dMarks11? As long as there's not a single benchmark presented, it's easy to talk big. So numbers, please. And how long will the accu last while playing demanding games?
Price? What about heat and durability? Noise of fans?

Mubadala is owned by the Abu Dhabi royal family. The Arabian Gulf isn't the Orient

Sorry to frustrate this educational mission, everyone knows AMD is proud being owned by oily sheiks, emirates, orient.

Abu Dhabi and UAE Laws
Nvidia stocks are publicly traded right? As are intel stocks , corsair pretty much any company you buy from.

Every company you buy from is probably being supported by rich people from other countries.
