    If that Apple A6/Samsung rumor turns out to be true, Time for Samsung to warm up it’s pimp hand.

    “Ultra HDTV technical standards agreed on, more pixels is a good thing”

      No this is definitely a good thing, especially for pc users. Manufacturers like to use the same resolutions on their monitors as they offer on their TV panels. This would lead to finally getting out of the stupid 1080p rutt that monitors seem to be stuck in.

        Yes, great for PC users…of 2020, at which point, your phone will simply wirelessly transmit its video output to your TV.

          My hope is that, before I die, computers will interact with my brain directly, and I’ll be able to see images that were transmitted to a monitor on my eyes.

            You should probably hope that’s not WHEN you die because Skynet hacks into your brain and shuts you off.

      If we can get more density per inch it’s definitely a good thing.

    Looking at the DXHR DLC vid there’s a lot of killing. Makes me wonder if they’ve removed the penalty for doing so. I hope the story is good and actually fits in – because it could be a rough fit.

    Is that a new typhoon animation?

    I hope they have a couple more DLCs coming down the pike. Not because I love DLC but it was fun to be back in that world again (and I can never get enough cyberpunk).

    [quote<]Hardware Canucks post Nvidia GeForce LAN day 2 & 3 coverage[/quote<] The LAN party seems awesome. The article needed more pics with nvidia babes though...

      If you’d have posted that on RPS you would have been crucified.

        I’m not sorry for being honest.

          Don’t be sorry. I saw the photo and now I want to be an Air Force Ranger, or whatever it takes.

            My thoughts exactly!

      Wait, [url<][/url<] isn't that picture of Jen-Hsun Huang...with a tattoo? If that's real, that's kind of nerdy-badass all at once.

        That’s the moust ridiculous thing i have ever seen from the tech world since Ballmar’s mental break down! Hahahaha

      It was an amazing event. I had a lot of fun, but the 870 mile drive there and back was a bit rough.. 🙂

        Atleast you got to attend, kind of jelly…

    It’s iSCSI btw Ronald.

    FYI the SemiAccurate articles about Bulldozer are two halves – and the first one listed here is the second half of the article.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to reading them when I get a chance. A number of people around here may not like Charlie (particularly those of the nvidia-persuasion), and I think he does get a little colorful at times, but I find the articles interesting 🙂

      He doesn’t really have much hard info. Basically the articles boil down to 1) AMD supposedly misjudged the market that BD would target back when they started designing the chip and no one noticed all these years, and 2) too many minor bugs in the process and design that couldn’t be fixed even with several years delay.

      Both articles really sound like mostly semi informed guess work to me.

      • destroy.all.monsters
      • 8 years ago

      I thought they were excellent articles. Read them a couple days ago as Semi is on my rss feed. I wondered why TR hadn’t linked to them yet.
