That's technically an NFL 2019 thread, and since Luck won't be playing in the NFL in 2019, I think it deserves its own thread.

For all the people whining that Intel's numbers are down a bit year over year, let's take a look at the competition (and no, I don't mean AMD): Here's Samsung: Profits off 56%.

OK, this might even deserve its own thread, but my posts are being hijacked by "Viglink" auto-inserting spam URLs when certain keywords are typed into a post.

Sounds like an Itanium style chip. If it ever sees the light of day I'll be shocked...and more shocked if it's remotely good. It's half Itanium and half trying to use old GPU-like compute units (think pre-GCN Radeons before AMD adopted superscalar units) to implement a general purpose processor. Th...
