    NVIDIA Powers Amazing Windows 8 Experiences

    For me after many years as windows/PC user i have never seen a new OS to be faster. Windows 98 faster than XP but crashed and buggy as hell, had to switch at some point because hardware was that fast it wouldn't matter how hungry XP was. Then comes Windows ME/2000, buggy and not a big...

    DOTA 2: Free to Play Confirmed

    No one put the free 2 play problem on the table, cheaters ! At least when money was involved the consequences was losing the money, now WTH will happen ? a new steam ID on a new email ? But who cares, if money flows better (from items,hats and all that bullshit you see in tf2) than when it...

    Japan's Nexon Attempting to Buy Out EA?

    Little programs that run in your corner so you can play a game and those runs only with internet or online happens because of piracy. Game developers probably have discussions like "wtf should we do so we can make money after our 2 year hard work on a game and millions of dollars spent on...

    Crytek Creating DirectX 11-like Graphics Effects for Crysis 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3

    I loved all crysis games so far, story and gameplay, sure they don't compare to modern warfare or BF3 but i love the sci-fi story and very good atmosfere. Problem with this game is they don't have a good multiplayer and if there is no good multi you are bound to have it cracked and pirated and...

    Nofan Unveils All-Copper CR-95C Silent CPU Heatsink

    It looks nice but i don't think it can compare to noctua/thermalright high end coolers wich most are not all cooper. I believe thermalright made an all cooper TRUE once that weight so much it could brake the MB, other than the price and weight it wasn't such a breaktrough in temps to make it...

    Toshiba to Launch the World-Fastest Class SDHC Memory Cards

    But , they go into a memory buffer , even if you have the fastest memory card on the planet they still go into the buffer and then dropped on the sd card , if the buffer is full then you will wait no matter the sd card. You will see a difference when you copy them on HDD.

    AMD Designing Next-Gen Playstation's GPU

    We all know why they chose AMD , because they were cheaper. Not to say they are worst than Nvidia , considering they need raw power and not sophisticated CUDA, physx or some other gimmicks , then AMD is really a no brainer , decent arhitecture in an envoriment where it will be properly...

    SK-1 and everyone that says upgrade , FOR WHAT ? except 1-2 games with absurd level of detail that you can't even spot , there is no game that will need all that power. PC's have now like over xxx times the power of a console and they still lack games that trully use all that power , of...

    New CUDA 4.0 Release Makes Parallel Programming Easier

    While Cuda has been very very good for video editing apps ( adobe ) and some other areas i don't know about ( science ?? ) it think it will come to an end at some point. Bottom line what cuda brought of real value to the world ? in games was physics and in content creation was faster...
