    AMD Confirms Stadia Will Run on Intel CPUs

    Wait a tick. Does intel own the x86 license or amd? While we know you hate intel I'm pretty sure AMD owns the licensing rights... I could be wrong but last i heard intel didnt ever hold the rights for x86 nor sell licensing. Been a while since I looked into it, but AMD had always controlled the...

    Intel Shows Off Graphics Card Designs at GDC 2019

    I disagree a bit. I think it will be what we consider mid range card as they have a few solid engineers working on it. It's not going to directly compete with either AMD or Nvidia in the enthusiast or high end markets, but could just challenge the status quo which would be good for all. We'll...

    Crytek Demos Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections Running on an AMD Vega 56

    At worst its a pretty good demonstration of their tech all things considered, but I wonder if they have the funds like Epic to push it. Devs and engineers at Crytek are doing amazing work on the budget they have, but Epic seems to be trying to bury them and you are right will likely attempt to...

    Crytek Demos Real-Time Ray Traced Reflections Running on an AMD Vega 56

    Crytek does some amazing things with software, but it was my understanding few are using Cryengine. I thought there was a migration due to the ease of development and lower cost to UE basically across the board... That's a solid demo and performance on a Vega 56. The nvidia haters are still...

    OMEN X Emperium 65 Is Now Available for Purchase

    Shit, I rented a really nice cube van, had a big friend with me, strapped that sucker down tight and drove 20 mph under the speed limit home! We got it in and after seeing the packaging once opened realized that was probably unnecessary. But after I did get it up and running and gave that sigh...

    OMEN X Emperium 65 Is Now Available for Purchase

    You pay for bleeding edge. I paid near as much for qled a few years ago. And the "retail" (dont get why on high end items they inflate msrp, the people buying them likely know its silly) was $8999... honestly for everything they are giving it might be a tad over priced but not insane.

    Quadriga Cryptocurrency Wallets are Empty

    So it was a "third party" device... makes more sense. Blockchain has it's place and I'd like to see it utilized in something other than crypto for security purposes, but yikes it is being utilized for the worst possible purposes!

    Quadriga Cryptocurrency Wallets are Empty

    How did E&Y find out they were empty? I thought it was uncrackable - the article says analytics, but either the right people can crack it or the key wasn't "lost". I just breezed the article so may have missed something though.

    Anthem Is a Buggy Mess

    Havent played it yet, but know people who are. They like it but have told me its buggy. That said, have you worked in the industry? Tested or dev? Unless you have these comments mean nothing. Zero. It's near impossible to find and fix all the bugs on a game of this type of scale and producers...

    Activision Blizzard Layoffs May Cause Key Talent to Leave

    Tesla Launches $35,000 Standard Model 3

    A friend of mine bought one of the mid level 3s and was able to get delivered shortly after production ramped up a handful of months. There is definitely a wait but I think the "years" is gone. At one point yeah... it is a nice car, not for me really. If I were ever to get a Tesla it's the 95...

    The best gaming mouse EVER is back

    Remember that mouse preference often depends on your grip. There's nothing truly special about this mouse, it was just well made, with good specs, at a fair price. MX5xx is probably best for people that prefer a claw grip instead of resting their palm that some of the more current designs have...

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    Great detailed review. Actually surprised at the silver award at price to performance considering the conclusion of the rtx being generally the better option and not getting the same treatment... but no matter the performance gives me hope and hard has always put out more accurate reviews!

    Apex Legends Hits 25 Million Players and 2 Million Concurrent Peak in Its First Week

    Your Privacy and Data are Different Things

    I assume you are referring to machine learning. So that isnt utilizing data and is somehow disconnected? I'm not going to say I'm even an amateur on ml but still understand the necessity of information flow... if you want to not call that data I guess I interrupt it differently. Edit: responded...

    Your Privacy and Data are Different Things

    Strange argument. To think that data and privacy are not directly interconnected even taking into consideration the amount of plaintext information being transmitted (this included) which allows the function of creating these profiles/models through querying that data is a little silly.

    Machinima Is Shutting Down, With 81 Staffers Laid Off

    Which was once valued at 100 million and now defunct. Did you take a single finance, accounting or basic business class? You are speaking as if that previous valuation is the current valuation of a company that just shuttered. And with authority. It's worth 0 right now. And as you said if you...

    Machinima Is Shutting Down, With 81 Staffers Laid Off

    ^ Here is how capitalism works. And I think it's pretty clear my leaning from all my previous posts and it's definitely not far right, but if you want someone else's ip after they are defunct then request to buy it!!! You can then choose to release it for free to the internet for everyone (but...

    I wish I could quote the Billy Madison comment after he makes the statement about the lost dog. What you just posted (kinda the beginning) is making everyone who reads and agrees with it dumber. How is it difficult to understand the profit motive? Ffs they do it here at [H]. This is an...

    San Francisco May Be the First City in the Nation to Ban Facial Recognition

    At times it's fun to read the comments just to see how clueless so many people are (or bigoted, but that's the same group constantly posting opinion as fact). Facial recognition or any biometrics are intrusive in nature. These are things that should be highly regulated. Although this seems silly...

    Check Clockspeeds and Benchmarks Before Buying a Gaming Laptop

    All this^. I thought this was just common knowledge for anyone that would visit [H]. How they don't have high wattage desktop variants of their video cards in a limited sized cooling environment doesn't need to be reiterated and isn't a gotcha moment.

    AMD Reported Its Q4 and Annual 2018 Financial Results

    Love non gaap reports lol. But I literally just had a conversation explaining the amazing job lisa su has done at AMD with my wife. Keep it up and keep the pressure on intel. This is shaping up to look more like 2004 than the stagnant dominated market place of the last decade. Even intel...

    Metro Exodus Is an Epic Store Exclusive

    Why do you think he wants ea games on steam? If it's for accessibility then give 100% profit to ea but that is not the reason. Valve wants a cut of the pie. Open your eyes.

    The electricity is not free but it is possible for break even. If purchase and depreciation cost was properly accounted in comparison to former costs as well as potential credit they could be technically profiting.

    Anthem Demo a "Clusterf*ck": Connection Errors, Loading Issues, and More
