So... you're basing this off of gaming results against a more expensive GPU? The Fury X might not be as compelling as we had hoped, but it's solid proof that the HBM idea works.

It's nice to see that Intel intends to improve FPGAs but I have a bad feeling they're going to go in a very bad direction with them. Intel is notorious for making things more complicated and...

Wow so 3.6W per core? That is actually very nice. Not to mention, these platforms are also physically small and relatively cheap. These 3 things can be a huge gain over Intel, IBM, and Oracle.

This is why capitalism is a failure? Are you not aware of MS's history? They got as far as they did BECAUSE of pulling this kind of stuff. They put companies and organizations in a situation where...

Actually it's dual 1920x1200. But anyway, it hasn't always been that way. The DK2 is a single 1920x1080 screen at 60Hz, and it didn't appear the developers had any immediate plans on improving that...

Those requirements seem pretty high, but, considering latency is crucial for these headsets (in order to reduce motion sickness) I think they make sense.

Banjo-Kazooie was one the best adventure games for it's generation, and is still better than most adventure games released today. Maybe not as good as Mario64 or Ocarina of Time, but pretty close.

That article was unfortunately improperly written. Those are different variants of the GPU. So for example, the OEM R9 380 will not be the same thing as the R9 380.

$5 for shipping in the US, which is a pretty average price if it is 3-day shipping. Understandably, I wouldn't want to pay $15 extra for shipping either to ship to the UK. Since the Pi was made in...

That is true, but, they're (mostly) interchangeable. There's a possibility that due to CHIP's size, it won't have a full-sized HDMI port anyway. In other words, you might need a special cable or...

That is true - DisplayPort is royalty-free but otherwise has roughly the same specifications. So, it would make more sense to go for that.

Allwinner for a system intended for linux? Seems like a poor choice to me. They're notoriously bad with anything linux related. But hey, whatever it takes to lower the price I guess.

Those timings are pretty bad. Could be worse, but still pretty bad. I can't believe people are still buying into this.

I believe intel's recent decisions are conscious choices, but there are a lot of factors contributing to that; more than what that article quote pointed out.
