    Statement by Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini on EC Ruling

    this is deserving: what cracks me up the most about all the "this is BS" people ranting off about this ruling and intel's position is the obvious. intel has been engaged in evil doing (anti-competitive practices) since the late 90's through to this day. it's pretty obvious that both the...

    TPU GPU review irregularities (question)

    well the point isn't the results of the 4850 but rather the cards that appear in both reviews running drastically slower in the review of Sapphire's HD 4850 512MB as compared to the previous review of the Zotac 8800 GTS 512MB. just trying to figure out why this occurred. ok i can see this...

    TPU GPU review irregularities (question)

    yes you are correct: Zotac 8800 GTS 512MB review uses: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33 GHz (Conroe, 2x 2048 KB Cache) Sapphire HD 4850 512MB review uses: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.6 GHz (Wolfdale, 6144 KB Cache) assuming you were pointing to the CPU as the cause of this --> if the CPU involved...

    forgot to mention that i modded it so that the regular round bullets are worth $500,000 so the third time through i had every massive weapon i could get carry and ammunition falling out of my pockets. that third time through was a hoot. trying to buy a ton of stuff from the trader at one point...

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Club House

    putting myself down as obsessed with S.T.A.L.K.E.R.. i don't think a single gamer i know either in my "clan" or other could say that in the last seven years they've not heard me mention S.T.A.L.K.E.R. any less than 20 times. ShadowFold --> to carry pretty much a maxed out assortment of death...
