    And something else that hurts sales is making a bad monitor that doesn't deserve an honest good review.

    AMD’s upcoming flagship GPUs should be 3x faster than RX 6900XT

    Ow. When I read "should be three times than RX 6900XT" I hoped that it would be "should be three times more in stock than RX 6900XT"but in these weird times, the fact that it's "three times more performance" is a big disappointment.

    Seasonic has a new take on cable management.

    What I like about this is not the cable management aspect, it's that it allows for more cable ports than the surface area of one side of a PSU would allow.

    Crytek's lawsuit over Star Citizen using Cryengine continues heating up

    According to the official roadmap, S42 is scheduled to go into beta, with all chapters complete, in Q3 of this year. Yes, it will probably get delayed, but $25 is a good price to pay for a beautiful dream.

    One more thing artificial intelligence can beat you at ...

    Actually, it's 51/49 chance that it will land on the face that was facing up when the coin was tossed. It has been confirmed by multiple studies. It can be the exact same program. Only the weights applied during the training phase change, but those are not technically part of the program...

    Intel Demos DG1 GPU at CES

    Jen-Hsun Huang said that for something to be called a GPU, it had to have hardware transforms and lighting, which the GeForce 256 was the first card to provide (other than SGI/workstation cards). So it all depends on how much you want to follow his guidance on that terminology :P PS: if not...

    NVIDIA: We Would Like To Surprise Everyone With 7nm (GPU) Announcement

    ...but that's not plagiarism. Plagiarism is the practice of trying to pass off someone else's work as your own. If you put the tiny excerpt in quotes and immediately credit the author and even link to their article, then how can you be trying to make people think it's your article? All he's...

    AMD’s Flagship Ryzen Threadripper 3990X 64 Core & 128 Thread Monster CPU Leaks Out Accidentally

    Niche or no niche, the answer is super easy. "Cheap" means: a price that lironmiron can actually afford. :)

    Windows 10 New Start Button redesign

    Oh, they're not forgetting their visual hints :) All the icons are grey and backgroundish except the only icons that they visually hint that you should be paying attention to: Edge and the MS Store! The only colored icons in a sea of grey.

    VR Rhythm Game 'Beat Saber' Sells over 1 Million Copies

    LOL. The secret to the game's success is: Lightsabers! I had to try it even before I knew it was intuitive or had polished code, just because Lightsabers! And yes, games where you stand in one place in the gameworld, like this and BoxVR, are the funnest... until someone can offer a realistically...

    Vitaminwater Offers $100K to Quit Smartphones for a Year

    I still use my 1990s phone without any prize involved and wouldn't change it for a smart phone unless forced. The only problem is that people hate having to give me directions instead of sending me a Wayz.

    Google and Facebook Cross "The Creepy Line"

    That seems very effective, if the objective is to stop all data collection based advertising. But that's not my objective, so I don't want this. I don't want to have to pay to use google, or hotmail, or gmail, or websites. It sounds really ominous when they say that they are not selling me...
