If we are not divided by nation, race, ethnicity, religion, ideology, political views or favourite sports team already, why not divide us by our preferential graphics card manufacturer?

When the murderer arrives in Hell, his punishment will be that all the PCs in Hell are running AMD cards, and there's no Wraith coolers or water cooling...this also explains the high temps, lake of fire, screaming, gnashing of teeth, etc.

Oh, at least he wasn't killed over a cpu brand ... because that would be so much worse.
Maybe you meant he could have been killed twice over cpu then gpu?

just to respond to the poll. I voted no, the fact their are 2 key players does not, in itself, create the tension. it's the marketing and superiority complexes that generate the tension (and of course enthusiasts forums like this, where "opinions" are worth what you paid for them) .

each team has to set themselves apart from the other for a "market" to be created.

Next thing you know they'll limit Ryzen processor performance because of the added risk to society.

Inb4 AMD statement on why performance is lagging a bit in real world tests.

A Russian man was convicted for murdering his friend over an argument they had over whose graphics card brand is better. Although this incident happened about a year ago, a court placed on official record that the fight that led to the murder was over graphics card brand loyalties. Aleksander Trofimov, hacked his friend Evgeny Lylin to death with a knife as things got heated way out of control between them. The two were under the influence of alcohol. Trofimov, got so offended by his friend's arguments over which GPU brand's cooling solution is better, that he stabbed him 11 times with a knife. Maybe keep your flame-wars on the Internet, where mods with bansticks can sort you out. We stab only your ego.
