    Phil Rogers AMD Fellow Jumps Ship to NVIDIA

    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

    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.

    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.

    Antioxidants May Make Cancer Worse

    Well like anything it's all moderation. Too much Omega 3 is bad. Too much water is bad. Too much of anything is bad. With western diets I doubt you could consume too much antioxidants to combat the oxidants people consume today.

    Phil Spencer: “I Don’t Know If Xbox One Can Beat PS4”

    The reason Microsoft released XB1 in Japan was to not be the only console not to be released in Japan. You know how stupid Microsoft would look if they didn't? But at the same time Japanese game developers are still important for game development, so it's a good idea to appeal to that market...

    Phil Spencer: “I Don’t Know If Xbox One Can Beat PS4”

    Every so often companies tend to disconnect from their consumers and Microsoft couldn't have disconnected more so. But consider that the XB1's situation is about to get far worse for these reasons. #1 PS4 price drop is now equal to the XB1. #2 PS4 has 783 games vs XB1's 493. #3 SteamBox...

    Verizon Hiking Unlimited Data Plans By $20

    Sometimes corporations are so full of themselves they believe they can get away with anything. Their hubris is astonishing. All Verizon did was remind their customers that T-Mobile has unlimited data and is now cheaper than Verizon. Unless the $50 price also includes unlimited talk and text...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Is 'Far, Far Bigger' Than The Witcher 3

    What 90's? World of Warcraft is still a game that gets updated today. New expansion is legion. But a lot of games have "busy work" to entertain you instead of a real quest system like Witcher 3.

    Why Sweden Is Shifting To A 6-Hour Workday

    But no that is a sad existence. People need free time for themselves and 12 hour work days is just enough to sleep and drive to work. You might as well not own a home, just get a mobile home and save yourself the commute.

    How Much More Does Medication Cost In The US?

    We rank lower than Canada. So yea there goes that theory. Provide me some statistics not pulled from thin air. The reason it's cheaper is because those countries negotiate for lower prices for supplies and medications. Everything just costs more in USA. Lots of inefficiency in our...

    How Much More Does Medication Cost In The US?

    I was thinking more of cold hearted sons of bitches. Unlike most Americans, I don't think the world starts at California and ends at New York. Fact is we spend more money on drugs than any other country in the world, and by a large factor. Our government spends more money than any other...

    How Much More Does Medication Cost In The US?

    It's unbelievable what people think. You're putting a price on your life and one you couldn't possibly pay. If you get sick, like real sick, like Alzheimer's or Parkinson’s disease at a young age then you couldn't afford it. It can happen, cause aging isn't the same for everyone. Due to...

    Why Sweden Is Shifting To A 6-Hour Workday

    That's why Obamacare was a good start. The UK for example could probably do the 6 hour work day because they have universal health care. You're covered no matter what. America needs universal health care that way we aren't forcing people into a 6+hour work days.

    How Much More Does Medication Cost In The US?

    And that's why people need pitch forks and sticks with fire to attack people like Martin Shkreli for price gouging. Remember that Daraprim drug that's like ‎£1 in the UK while in the US it's $750. The rich are calling and they're saying you better get universal health care before we...

    Why Sweden Is Shifting To A 6-Hour Workday

    Don't forget anti-aging technology that might allow people to live for hundreds of years while staying young. So on top of the automation you also have more qualified people looking for work. You can't prevent it from happening. Eventually we'll have a class war where it's the rich vs...

    Is Sony Declaring Defeat On Handheld?

    Hardware was neat but for me it was clear the whole thing was doomed because of the smart phone boom. Well the guys at Extra Credits had a better explanation as to why the Vita failed. Remember both the Vita and 3DS were expensive at first and have to deal with the mobile market. You could...

    iPhone 6S Plus Vs. Galaxy Note 5 Speed Test

    That's the retarded thing about Android in that you can't utilize the SD Card as much as you want. Though you can move apps to it but it's not like I can specifically install the app first on the SD Card.
