    [quote<]PepsiCo reserves 100 Tesla Semis, likely at $20,000 a pop @ Ars Technica[/quote<] It’s the choice of a new generation. BTW, in case anyone else was confused by the headline, it is the reservation that costs 20k a pop, not the semi itself. For a minute there, I thought Pepsi was gettin a sweet deal.

      It’s roughly a 10% downpayment.

    I find interesting that nobody has reviewed Titan V with “Quantum Break”, one of the most -if not the most- demanding videogames to date.

    I am really liking the cheese perspective. It gives the news bite a less serious tone. And a good laugh at the same time!

    Sage wisdom from PC Perspective:

    [quote<]First and foremost, I want everyone to remember that no matter the scores we showed or talked about, I do not recommend that anyone buy a $3000 graphics card for a gaming system. Please. Listen to the words that I am typing to you. Do. Not.[/quote<] But there's this too: [quote<]Now that’s out of the way – holy hell does the Titan V offer impressive gaming performance for a product not aimed at this market. [/quote<] So while Titan V is clearly a terrible idea if you want to play games, it looks like future versions of Volta that are designed for the gaming market should be getting the job done.

    The Titan V – Gamer’s Nexus link is interesting with respect to overclocking..

    -it’s been a while that a video card could be overclocked beyond “partner’ (over-clocked) and air-cooling to achieve significantly better results.

    Assuming that power delivery is “up to the task”, *Geforce* Volta might just be worthy of watercooling for substantive performance gains (..beyond a typical “partner” 3-fan solution).

    How is TR not reporting and commenting on the FCC report to repeat net neutrality. I imagine this would be a pretty interesting topic of discussion.

      I’ve covered it a lot in previous Shortbread’s, but today’s vote happened after I put the bread in the oven.

      [i<]Edit: Dang it, I should have gone with, "Dude, a picture of Ajit Pai is part of this post!"[/i<]

        You should have gone with “We did, not sure why it keeps getting taken down though?!”
