AMD vs. NVIDIA Flamewar Claims its First IRL Fatality

A Russian man was convicted for murdering his friend over an argument they had over whose graphics card brand is better. Although this incident happened about a year ago, a court placed on official record that the fight that led to the murder was over graphics card brand loyalties. Aleksander Trofimov, hacked his friend Evgeny Lylin to death with a knife as things got heated way out of control between them. The two were under the influence of alcohol. Trofimov, got so offended by his friend's arguments over which GPU brand's cooling solution is better, that he stabbed him 11 times with a knife. Maybe keep your flame-wars on the Internet, where mods with bansticks can sort you out. We stab only your ego.

"Aleksander ended up murdering his friend for claiming that AMD was better."

The murderer was an nVidia fanboy apparently.

What the hell, ah say, what the hell, son? </foghornleghorn>
It's great that the booze levels @ TPU are low or non-existent, otherwise there would be a murder-spree in this thread... :p

I think we require a new term for such behaviour. Fanboy doesn't quite cut it. What about, 'sub intelligent degenerate'?

Alcohol is the hardest drug on disposal and all others , which are lighter class for the whole class are prohibited in the interest for the manipulation of people as more raise awareness than cause addiction but everything in overdose is harmful even bread contains black croissants or pure LSD They can be dangerous. All the rest is in a human. EGO . Only Nixson can go to China !

The russian account is horrible.. He really thought it through.

Stolica
He later admitted to the investigator that then instantly sobered up and realized that he needed to hide a corpse.
He was sober when he wrapped him up and put him in the trunk

Stolica
The man decided to take the dead man in the wasteland of the plant "Rezinotekhnika"
Hes sober dumps his body goes to sleep wakes up and then goes back to burn it

As a Russian I find this disgusting and shameful. You can behold the result of intellectuals’ purges, gulags, and 80 years of Communism.

I hate 95% of population of my country, because most of them are sadly Lumpenproletariat and its descendants.

P.S.
Love the amount of Russopobic hate in the comments. Keep it coming haters. :laugh:

I have to say, the guy who got killed, actually knew how to trigger his friend. Too bad he died while grinding his friend's gears.

Just look at the face of killer, "highly" intellectual. I am surprised he could communicate like a human.
