We here at ISC (Intel Shill Central) are not procrastinating at all as we announce that Xe Graphics are CANCELLED*.

* By which of course we mean the hardware scoreboards used for data coherency in earlier versions of the EUs are cancelled.


Aren’t Shortbreads normally Tuesday/Thursday affairs? Did you lose a fight with procrastination, fish?

For some added gaming news, Nintendo finally expanded their Switch Online service to include SNES games. In case you needed another way to play A Link to the Past or Super Metroid (non-randomized).


“Loch Ness DNA analysis suggests monster could be a big ol’ eel @ New Atlas”

In honor of today’s shortbread theme, I’ll give that Tree-Fiddy tomorrow.
