      I thought this was getting deleted, but if not.. well..

      it’s not a talent unless you make extremely awkward sounds while at it. I, for instance, make beat box D&B rhythms and breaks =)

      Nope, every tom dick and harry does that. Infact, it is as common as human being needs food.

      Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t see AMD “pumping” anything. The linked story is quoting “leaked” info not AMD PR; the slides are from AMDZone.com, not from AMD. And even at that, I don’t see anywhere there’s a claim that the IOMMU is “new”: it is listed as a feature of some of the chipsets, but not for others, presumably because some of the chipsets include it and some of them don’t. Right next to “IOMMU” is “PCIe 2.0” and “HT3” — neither of which is claimed to be “new” either. AMD appears to be doing exactly what Intel is doing with their equivalent VT-d tech; using it (among other things) to differentiate some chipsets from others.

    Per the celebrate your unique talent day, the talent I’ve always wanted was to be able to tie a knot in a cherry stem with my tongue…well, it would be OK for me, but I’d rather find a woman with that exact unique talent. Here’s to hoping.

    l[<"Fudzilla: AMD's Bulldozer hints at 3.5GHz 8MB L3 and Turbo 2.0"<]l All this talk makes me itchy for some hard facts. Get ready Scott... The slower L3 cache is a little disappointing. I was hoping AMD could do better. Nothing screams like 1:1. l[<"Kotaku cites report: Elder Scrolls V is a direct sequel to Oblivion"<]l And this almost made me wet myself. I'm not sure why but I LOVE the Elder Scroll series. Every one. And seeing this tibit of news is exciting! Maybe this will be the first game for my Bulldozer! EDIT: How nice is IE9? I have not tried the beta.

    why can’t anyone just suddenly owe me like.. 2.5 million bucks or something, geesh! what do I have to do?

      AGAIN! You’re on a roll today! as for what you have to do… I think we can work something out….
