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 should be shut down, but only after games like Bulletstorm have it patched out. And I'd like that particular patch sometime soon, thank you very much.
