    Goldman Sachs Upgrades Stock Ratings for AMD, Downgrades Intel to "Sell"

    Intel needs to learn how to "NDA" journalists from nVidia. There are no problems Intel has at the moment that could not have been addressed this way. Long term Intel Fab vs TSMC&Co fabs is a different discussion.

    NVIDIA GTX 1080-successor a Rather Hot Chip, Reference Cooler Has Dual-Fans

    Right, it was "somebody else" not bentoverbackwards team greens calling cards consuming 250W "power hogs" and 50-70W difference in power consumption "huge". I'm preparing popcorn for the price justification talks.

    NVIDIA GTX 1080-successor a Rather Hot Chip, Reference Cooler Has Dual-Fans

    Why does wording in OP sound like it was written by an nVidia employee working in marketing department? Elaborate on "hope for AMD", I might have missed the problems they had recently, looking at their stock. First, it's billions, and second, because developing GPUs takes many months and there...

    Bethesda Readies Appetites for Quakecon With a Catalog Sale on Steam, Bethesda.net

    Dear Customer, we are fed up with giving 30% of our revenue to Steam. We couldn't care less that Steve Jobs found 30% cut to be appropriate. Sincerely, Bethesda, Epic Games, Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft, EA Uh, what? There is nothing like gog, from which you can download game installer using...

    Philips Releases the 278E9 Monitor: 27" VA Panel, 1080p, 1800R, FreeSync

    128% sRGB, hmm, interesting. https://www.philips.co.uk/c-p/278E9QJAB_00/curved-lcd-monitor-with-ultra-wide-color/specifications "Ultra wide COLOR" range alone warrants it, citizen.

    AMD Beats NVIDIA's Performance in the Battlefield V Closed Alpha

    FFS, AMD regularly "beats nvidia at something", but it doesn't happen that often, that AMD beats nVidia by a whopping 30% in an nVidia sponsored game. It's hard to see with eyes wide shut. So, nVidia got ahead in DX12 Hitman? Why does a minor alpha game benchmark force you to start spitting...

    Xiaomi Mi Laptop Air Launched in Spain, Ready to Rock in Europe

    They are as "gimped" as mobile GPUs always were. Premium buzzword created to sell you stuff in superslim format for less money, makes perfect sense.

    Could you please: 1) Stop calling DisplayHDR 400 standard HDR 400 2) Spreading misinformation

    AMD Comments on FreeSync 2 HDR Controversy

    FS2 was announced before DisplayHDR certification, how could AMD align with anything? When you see "GSync HDR" what does it tell you in terms of "DisplayHDR" certification? AMD's adding of "HDR" to FreeSync solves their problem of customers misreading "GSync HDR" vs "FreeSync 2" as "oh, the...

    AMD Comments on FreeSync 2 HDR Controversy

    TVs can slap "HDR" on them with no certification whatsoever. Suddenly we care about Monitors misleading about it, wow. As calculated by well known all encompassing experts, such as south eastern part of Mr Gasaraki's body. Why on Earth? FS 2 is about several things, ONE OF THEM HDR and not...

    Revised NVIDIA Reviewers NDA Raises Eyebrows: Our Thoughts

    heise.de: The NDA should apply to all information provided by Nvidia, so it did not refer to a specific product or information. There was also no concrete expiration date. Oh, right, sure thing. There was also a lawyer that said "I don't know what it means (so it should be fine". Those stupid...
