A lack of competition is often cited as being the reason Nvidia holds back with its "big" chips (GF100, GF110, GK110), but the reality is that these actually are physically enormous chips. Big chips...

Antony, your article seems to (unintentionally) suggest that Nvidia and AMD are somehow holding back on their chip development. The reality is that 4K is still an incredibly intensive resolution to...

It's a good idea. One of the good things about PC Mark is that it places a lot of emphasis on storage, so systems with SSDs always score highly. It should avoid the situation where the manufacturer...
