"Stand mode." I suppose this is a good choice for media consumption -- turn your PC into a little touchscreen TV.

I know quite a few very highly ranked players who would open two clubs on any LTC of four or less.

Re: Intel is interested in Mantle?

Intel may consider it as a faster/easier way to get good support for AAA titles than trying to keep up with NVidai/AMD in supporting the other APIs.

Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. Three times, it's enemy action. -- [more]

Re: Graphics card inventory problem?

Interestingly, the current $550 price is the MSRP from AMD back when the card was launched.

The XFX Double D is an overclocked card with a non-stock board and cooler. Much better choice than the cards which use the AMD factory design, [more]

Re: Graphics card inventory problem?

I'd agree that a mix of factors is probably the right answer, with crypto not an insignificant part of it. Also AMD's and Nvidia's GPU product lines are getting a bit long in the tooth. They've been stuck on 28nm for way too long.

I'd [more]

Re: Apple to replace OpenGL with new low level API

You would think that Apple would have learned how trademark law works by now. (How many high-profile infringement cases have they been involved in?)

Re: Mullins can't find design wins

Semi trucks typically run 2 or 4 batteries, as the large diesel engine takes more amps to start than a Toyota Corolla. But for now, let's just consider a single car battery.

Re: Mullins can't find design wins

Most glaringly obvious difference I see is that AMD's reporting "0.95W" for "web browsing" - yet you look at the tomshardware link, and it separates out the panel backlight, and shows that as consuming over 1W.

Re: Mullins can't find design wins

This sounds like a job for Atom. Seriously, I don't see a reality in which AMD wins by selling a lot of Mullins into this market. (Maybe they do better than they would in a reality in which they don't sell a lot of Mullins into ANY market, [more]

Re: Mullins can't find design wins

Why would truck cabs need APUs and (kinda) high-end graphics? and why would they benefit from x86? If you have a truck cab, why do you care about low power consumption and long battery life? or graphics, when you can't look at the screen to [more]

Re: Is AMD ready to give Intel a fight again?

Ow! :( At least it seems to be two way, the way I read it, right?

Careful! The CLA means that there is a license in place, but there is also a process Intel and AMD use to determine (net) royalties due. There was a time when AMD was [more]

Re: Mullins can't find design wins

states that the right target for Mullins is high end gamer tablets. I agree.

I don't. If there is/will be a tablet gamer market, it will be ARM based. This is the real problem with Mullins for tablets--x86 tablets have a pretty [more]

Re: Low priced 4k display

Low priced 4k display

The Samsung U28D590D is available (well sold out currently) on Amazon for $699. I don't know what compromises they have made other than TN, but a 4k display for under what most 2560x1600 displays cost?
