      The article states at the end that this won’t be happening for anything except Xeon, which prices it well outside the range most of us will be considering for upgrades. 🙁

      Hope they reintroduce 95W as sort of a mainstream performance+ segment, if that’s what’s needed to bring faster/higher core count chips below the 130W enthusiast bracket.

        I agree

      To bad the $0.05 thermal grease inside the chips will make them start on fire.

      I expect you read the article…it’s only a possibility for high-end Zeons, it won’t change anything for regular CPUs or ones that sane people buy for personal use.

    Do I want a browser that puts even more advertising into my web experience?

    No, I do not.

      Could be worse. Imagine if Google made glasses that you wore all the time. Oh wait!

        good one xD, in Spain google is pretty popular just because it’s the all free company, but people forgets that ad supported products are paid by daily life spending. So nothing from google is free, it just gets paid from other ways. But no one cares… As long as there is no fee, its free in their eyes. So in spain google is way cooler than in uniteds…

      Dont buy an add-supported product and stop going to web site like TR that plaster adds all over the place?

        • Deanjo

        There are ads in TR?

          • smilingcrow
          • 8 years ago

          I find it so easy to tune out the style of ads that are on TR that I don’t see them either. Some sites use ads that are very intrusive though to the detriment of that site. It’s all the devil’s work of course.

          I’d take up some sort of subscription to remove the TR adverts, if it was offered.
