    Not sure what you're getting at and I don't think you do either. Both are programming guides for error checking. The syntax is just different for both Mantle and DX12. The wording for both is nearly identical, as if one copied from the other. Considering Mantle predates DX12, I would say...

    Windows 10 Upgrade Nags Become More Aggressive

    If you think that's bad. http://tech.slashdot.org/story/15/10/15/1422256/microsoft-now-uses-windows-10s-start-menu-to-display-ads

    No. Why? Cause they're both handled the same way. Kinda makes sense since they both use HLSL. Microsoft practically copied the guide from Mantle. It's no secret that AMD has poorly optimized drivers, especially when it comes to OpenGL. Why you think AMD performs so badly under Linux...

    You missed the part where Mantle is now DX12 and Vulkan. More specifically Vulkan since AMD has more direct development with that API. Think about the name used for Vulkan. Mantle is like the layer around the Earth and volcanism is the release of that layer in what we call a volcano...

    Well SPIR-V will be able to use CUDA code as well. It's in development right now and AMD is throwing a fair bit of code into it. But once SPIR-V is out along with new OpenCL there won't be a reason to stick with CUDA, as it isn't there really isn't.

    CUDA to SPIR-V not Vulkan. SPIR-V just comes with Vulkan. You should really read up about it. It's basically your one stop shop for GPU compute, thus making CUDA obsolete.

    Windows 10 Can Do Windows Inside Windows Inside Windows

    But can you run GTAV within the Virtual Machine like Linux? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16dbAUrtMX4

    Technically they have. We just don't think about it because how many of us need 8 core CPUs? The i7-5960X is over $1k and we don't bat an eye because it has nearly 0 effect in gaming. But it's technically a proper evolution of CPU design unlike the Skylake CPUs which for the most part perform...

    Well a lot of the problem is that most Nvidia cards use aftermarket coolers while a lot of AMD cards were using stock coolers. I'm the kinda of person that will remove the stock cooler immediately and plop on my water block to cool the GPU cause doesn't matter if it's AMD or Nvidia cause both...

    I know right. I mean who's looking forward to games coming out soon? Fucking losers. It's only 100W+ when gaming, while idle it consumes 2W+ over the 970. The amount of electricity would barely be worth mentioning it unless you game 24/7. But also consider that the 970's 3.5GB handicap...

    Right now a lot of i5's are priced around the FX-8350. The Skylake 6600K is a joke, but still costs more than the 4690K. Normally you'd see the 6600K take the price of the 4690K and all processors bellow it would drop in price, as they should. It's hard to justify buying the 6600K when you...

    Considering a lot of Nvidia users think AMD drivers are the worst, would it be smart to hire someone working for AMD for 21 years? Also doesn't Nvidia have driver issues with Windows 10? I hear they're buggy as hell.

    Antioxidants May Make Cancer Worse

    Or you could be the Mole Rat which never get cancer cause it always keeps its telomeres extended. With we could do that, oh wait BioViva just genetically altered a human being with two genes just for extending telomeres. More specifically Htert and a Myostatin inhibitor. This is done outside...

    Antioxidants May Make Cancer Worse

    The reason to eat antioxidant food is to combat free radicals which occurs naturally in the human body. Radicals aren't bad, your body uses it to attack bacteria and infections and exercising also causes free radicals and that isn't bad either. But when you include smoking, sun light, eating...

    Antioxidants May Make Cancer Worse

    Actually mltivitamins have been proven to increase the amount of Telomres in woman. But it helps to know what you eat and what vitamin you could be deficient in. Most Americans are deficient in Omega 3 and consume boat loads of Omega 6, but you need a 1:1 ratio of them both to be healthy.
