    Linus Torvalds Slams Security Researchers Without Taking Names

    Maybe you (and the rest of the press) should have given AMD enough time to even comment on it before publishing unsubstantiated libel. But then again, you got so many clicks from the bait so I'm sure you don't regret it one bit.

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Germany Prices Revealed - Price Increases Marginal

    That's completely wrong. Sandy Bridge 214mm^2, Sky Lake (Kaby Lake is almost the same) is 122mm^2 even including graphics. If you go by price/mm^2 of silicon for 4 core i7s, the Sandy Bridge is half the price of the Sky Lake for the same silicon area.

    Blizzard Pays Generous Bounty for Original Starcraft "Gold Master" Source CD

    It just shows how dumb the guy is. I seen this story posted is so many sites now and every time, it sounds like PR push from blizzard when the whole thing costed the billion dollar company like $1000 total.

    They are likely talking about half precision which is what nvidia quotes for their X1. It will be 500GFLOPs of single precision if the cores are maxwell.

    AMD and Oculus Shatter VR Barriers With $499 CyberPowerPC VR Ready System

    People complain about things being underpowered for VR and yet most of the VR games out are not even taxing. The minimal requirements for Oculus isn't the same as the Vive so the steam VR bench isn't even relevant. There is only the artificial requirement of the minimal spec. All the games run...

    Microsoft XBOX Scorpio SoC Powered by "Polaris" and "Zen"

    The source only speculates it's Zen. If it is Zen then it would only be 4 cores 8 threads. A full 8 core Zen plus a 6TF GPU will not fit inside the power envelope of a console while remaining cost effective at all. 8 core zen is 95W, even the lower clocked low power version will probably be...

    Nvidia is slowly raising the price of the cards and everyone is buying it up. $700 is insane and it's not even the titan yet. I can't imagine what price they would release the 1080ti and titan10 at.
