Yeah, but maybe if intel had longer release cycles, such issues wouldn't occur in the first place. What exactly is intel in such a rush for anyway? With AMD so far behind the high-end CPUs, intel...

For some of their products, it's going to be more than $50 off for me to be willing to pay. But to me the real problem with intel is it's getting increasingly difficult to justify an upgrade. Sandy...

For Windows, this sounds like a massive security or malware risk, in which case the linked files will likely become useless for recovery. I'd rather MS just clean up the bloat so this wasn't...

As an American who uses Newegg nearly every time I want a new PC, I'd like to point out that unlike most stores, Newegg's shipping prices are only poor if you only buy 1 or 2 things at a time. As...

I'm well aware the amount of embedded devices that run Windows. The problem is you're paying so much more by doing that, not just because of the license for Windows but because windows demands...

What you're saying to do is equally as hard as finding the carrot that is big enough to bring back the horse. Removing kinect isn't an option - MS is trying to promote the kinect as something that...

Once again, both intel and MS are way too caught up in their existing products. There's a reason ARM is used for mobile platforms and there's a reason Windows isn't used, yet both companies are so...

I'm pretty sure the ESRAM is the only real problem. The hardware as a whole isn't too drastically different from PS4 yet I'm not aware of any PS4 titles limited to 720p (I'm not saying there aren't...

If the hardware is physically different, it won't work. AMD has a tendency to just re-brand one of their gaming GPUs as firepro and just alter the drivers. I'm sure nvidia might make some small...

I've heard of that, but as far as I'm aware that wasn't quite the same thing. IIRC, that was supposed to compete with CUDA and openCL rather than act as an actual GPU. In other words, you wouldn't...

@Gareth
Sorry my bad - I was kind of in a rush so I did skim through it quickly. I have a tendency to do that a lot, if you haven't noticed. But even then, $1000 is a lot for something so stupid...

I don't understand how $40m is, by any means, worth spending on something that shouldn't affect him personally. Why does it matter to him if gays get married? If he's religious and hates it, does...

I too am surprised they haven't done this sooner. The reason DX10 was a mis-fire is because MS didn't release DX10 for Windows XP, and, ATI took a relatively long time to add the support for it. ...

If any of you are using linux, they simply moved the DX10 cards to their "legacy" drivers. They still update those drivers, just not as frequently. So, if you'd like to keep using those GPUs in the...
