    Crysis 3, please :). Very High + (at least) FXAA, for single digit framerates on midrange cards :D. Other sites test C3 on Medium :shadedshu

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    Seems like AMD is trying to kill Moore's law. First they slowed down CPU development with Bulldozer, now they stalling graphics cards market. Good job, AMD.

    No New GPUs from AMD for the Bulk of 2013

    AMD fails again. Could 2014 AMD Radeon "HD 8970" Fail Edition compete with nVidia's next high end chip (~30 percent faster than Titan). I think not.

    6 GB Standard Memory Amount for GeForce Titan

    $900, still no improvement in perf/USD, 2bad. Yawn. That's not how you popularize PC gaming. Tough times for nVidia, Tesla got a problem with Xeon Phi, Tegra 4 apparently sucks, next gen consoles use AMD hardware (although a mistake IMHO, absolute performance and perf/Watt wise), GeForce might...

    AMD "Richland" Desktop APU Lineup Detailed

    IGP still slower than 7750, Hybrid CFX slower than 8750. Impressive, AMD you have fastest IGP world has ever seen, too bad it's glued to slow power hungry Pile of <beep> processor. :D

    Apple Reports Record Results for Q1 FY2013

    There is another reason for high profits. It's failure of all PC/Notebook companies to deliver real good quality hardware. Most important, notebooks. An average PC notebook has 1366*768 ~200nits, ~300:1 (there are worse ones, as well, another lenovo, T430s or T430u scores less than 150:1)...

    Remember Zune? I didn't think so. What we learned from all these years is that M$ cannot compete with Apple products. Especially with this silly price.

    Think about this when you need to render something (video or raytracing), or play Crysis 3... And virtualization is violation of user's privacy. So, it is being dumber from user's point of view. It just means that hardware and software are owned by an Corporation (could be evil, what do you...

    Intels Xeon Phi looks to demote GPGPU

    Hopefully compute Maxwell (Tesla) will be a homogenous GPU - all shaders can execute 2 prim/clk FP32 or FP64 (or 2 SP or 1 DP). I think intel cannot match that kind of performance (up to 4xDPof GK110 [or 2x] - 2880 FP32 SP and 2880/3 FP64 SP), even with smaller production process. Also a special...
