    Microsoft Unveils Pricing for Cloud Streaming Windows 365 Service

    Unless you are a small business and you don't have a Microsoft rep, you rarely pay the listed price. We pay about 30% of the actual license cost in our enterprise agreement. Those would still be expensive for what they are. I wonder what are the future of these Virtual Desktop solution when...

    Intel Rebadges 10nm Enhanced SuperFin Node as "Intel 7," Invents Other Creative Node Names

    True, but the power consumption is not only dependent on the node. I can also be dependent on the architecture and on the v-curve intel implement. That is back to the point i made. Only the real world performance (and power consumption) matter, not the number on the fabrication node.

    Facebook Pauses Sales of Oculus Quest 2 Over Skin Irritation

    It also depend on how many user use it, i am the only one that use my headset. But if you have a family, and pass it to other people, it can certainly mess up skin biome.

    Facebook Pauses Sales of Oculus Quest 2 Over Skin Irritation

    I think the real issue is the foam was porous and that create a good environment for bacteria. Initially, I didn't had any skin irritation when doing long sessions (1h+). Then i started playing Thrill of the fight, (an intense boxing game). Well after 2-3 sessions where the foam was soaking...

    Intel Rebadges 10nm Enhanced SuperFin Node as "Intel 7," Invents Other Creative Node Names

    This is fun for speculation and all that but in the end, it do not really matter to us customers. What is important is the final performance of each product. This is only for people that might want to buy manufacturing process. I am not surprised that they are renaming their manufacturing node...

    Intel Core i9-12900K Allegedly Beats AMD Ryzen 9 5950X at Cinebench R20

    Well i still need to wait for actual game results to see how it perform but that is indeed very interesting. But the CB single thread score do not exactly reflect to gaming performance sadly. But that is indeed very interesting for content producer. If that is true, there are 2 scenario, and...

    AMD FSR FidelityFX Super Resolution Quality & Performance

    a Bilinear upscale + sharpening do not look as good as FSR with it's own sharpening. Way more artefact.

    AMD Zen 4 Desktop Processors Likely Limited to 16 Cores, 170 W TDP

    The main problem of Gustafson's Law is Amdahl Law still apply. And that also prove my point too, you talk about resolution and graphics. Like i said, things that can be easily parallelized are being run on accelerator like GPU. It's true that you can increase the difficulty of the work of...

    Valve Announces the Steam Deck Game Console

    1280x800... 8 CU RDNA 2 shouldn't have too much problem to run these game at good framerate. I am mostly concern with UI size as some game require a minimum of 1080p, do all pc game will work or they will require specific version of games to run on these? We will see, but with the spec, that...

    AMD Zen 4 Desktop Processors Likely Limited to 16 Cores, 170 W TDP

    Those 2 quote can't be compared. There is no law that limit how much data it's worth storing. But there is a rules about multicore/multithread scaling. Amdahl law https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amdahl%27s_law The thing is a lot of the thing that can easily be parallelized can be done by GPU...

    NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 Added to Red Dead Redemption 2

    I had some time to test it but i read that to not get artefact, you will want to disable TAA Sharpening. I didn't and I had strange artefact around edge. I still need to try without it but that is a good to know. It's quite strange that turning on DLSS do not turn it on by default. Also...

    AMD Zen 4 Desktop Processors Likely Limited to 16 Cores, 170 W TDP

    I think the key here is the power envelope and the intended buyers of these CPU. AMD already offer up to 64 cores with Threadripper so we could say they limit consumers desktops to 16 cores, but that is more than enough for most people. A key selling point for desktop CPU right now is still...
