    America and Canada Ground All Boeing 737 MAX Planes

    That entire last paragraph could describe boeing and still be entirely accurate. There is in no way any difference in the degree to which either company was nurtured on and still milks their sponsoring governments.

    Toyota Has a Curious Justification for Not Selling Any EVs

    Talking about putting advanced batteries in ... Just about everything is the hot new craze. Is there enough Lithium in the earth's crust to make all of these and then make their replacements every few years when they're worn out. I don't see it, personally.

    "Back 4 Blood": Left 4 Dead Creator Announces New Co-op Zombie Game

    I was the exact same. I didn't like the played for laughs tone of l4d2. The first game wasn't exactly serious but it still had some grit to it. Also the l4d2 campaigns and characters weren't the greatest.

    Microsoft Announces DX12 Support for Windows 7

    Wait no your omitting the multicore abilities of dx12. Dx11 mandates piling everything onto one main/central/coordinator thread. The high draw call issue with dx11 just aggravates that issue. We as pc gamers don't appreciate that issue as a lot of what we play are console ports that are made to...

    JPR Releases New GPU Market Share Statistics

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    Thank you! I went and did some reading. You are correct. Learned something today. Re: rowhammer cpu vs ram problem. Well yes but ram is present in cpus, which I took as clear. Rowhammer flips bits.... to infer the contents of neighbouring memory cells. ECC has 2 problems vs rowhammer: flipping...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    It isn't a simple fix. You could say they don't care or you could say it's a set of vulnerabilities that strike at the very heart of the means by which CPUs have been made faster for close to 15 years. The entire idea that speculative execution/memory prefetch/memory disambiguation could become...

    New Speculative Execution Bug Allegedly Affects Intel CPUs

    I think the gist of it is there is no sandboxing this away. It's a very simple bit of code that reveals memory addresses, which are the keys to your whole system. The thing with all of these side channel attacks is that whereas your software is sandboxed/tightly controlled permissions and...

    AMD Radeon VII Video Card Review @ [H]

    I always go for 3 years. The card has earned its asking price by then and you grow to love it as it gently drifts from 'wow this thing is fast' to 'come on old girl you can do it'.

    AMD Radeon VII 33-Game Benchmark: "It Makes the GTX 2080 Look Pretty Good"

    A wide but slow bus will always be more efficient than a narrow but fast one. A lot of engineering hoops have to be jumped through to make a high speed bus (voltages + signifigant extra logic) and that comes with a hefty penalty in terms of power consumption. Honestly hbm holds all the cards vs...

    AMD vs NVIDIA Drivers....FIGHT!

    My experience to. Never run into problems that have dragged on for ages and ages over multiple sets of drivers. That being said I've never run multi-gpu or multi-monitor setups, which is a minefield. I can't help but suspect that outside of these 2 use cases folks are running into actual faulty...

    Specialized Processors are Seemingly Overtaking General Purpose Chips

    Ah ok that alters things a touch. Even so we've gone from 2 types of chips doing 99.99% of everything everywhere - cpus and gpus - to 3 types - cpus, gpus, inference engines. All 3 will happily exist beside each other. You're right though things have been majorly shaken up. Who would've thought...

    NVIDIA DLSS Boosts Performance by up to 50% in the Port Royal Benchmark

    I go back to 1997 with my interest with PCs so I'm as cynical as it gets. Ray tracing on your home pc is, frankly, dead in the water unless you have a 2080 ti. It'll take 7nm gpus to make this shit fly. So yeah it's a new feature.. On box art of 2080s, 2070s and 2060s. Not a feature in any game...
