Re: DFI Patent Dual System Platform, Hybrid is Disclosed

Interesting concept, but I don't know about saving the planet with such a system. I would think the cost of producing something like this would offset the benefits achieved. Maybe they could offer some concrete numbers in the form off a demonstration on the savings possible.

Re: Ultimate NVIDIA Themed Gaming System for Auction on eBay

OMG that is 1 ugly system. The only reason to buy it is to gut it for the components. Oh and to donate to charity.

Re: New Fermi-based Tesla GPUs Reduce Cost Of Supercomputing

Hmm, what would I use a super computer for? Run simulations of the theoretical yield on the nuke I am building in backyard. Maybe even use a few of them together to try to break AES 128 bit. The illegal uses are seemingly endless.

Re: ATI 5970 Cards Sold Out In Hours

No need to hurry getting these out in big numbers yet. It may cannibalize their already great sales in the 5870.

Re: AMD Announces Redemption of 7.75% Senior Notes Due 2012

Their cash position seems to be much improved with the $1.25B Intel settlement. Reducing debt at this time is a great idea and their graphics devision is going to have a fantastic quarter beating up on NV. AMD is a buy stock right now.

Re: Gameskulls GS-1 Tactical Gaming Helmet Headphones

Not practical in any sense. Drilling holes into the top is not going to eliminate heat issues. I don't know how many of you have worn a Military issue kevlar helmet before but this helmet is obviously modeled on it. If you have worn one, you would that helmets are heavy and uncomfortable for any per...

Re: Intel Finally Demonstrates Larrabee Graphics Card

I don't think Larrabee is close to market at all. They will have to beat AMDs APU which is scheduled for 2011. Nvidia is going to left out in the cold.

Re: ATI Radeon HD 5850 CrossFire Video Card Review

I want the 5850 but it is still a little pricey. I'm going to have to wait till it drops below $200. GT300 is rumored to be coming out december. I hope there will be a price drop then so I can retire my 4850.

Re: Nividia's Imminent Demise?

The biggest discrete gpu maker is Nvidia. If you want to run SLI, you need Nvidia's chipset. Nvidia's got their niche market and don't want to give it up. Intel wants to keep their bases covered now that their previous close relationship to ATI is non-existent. The only way they are going to get a S...

I heard somewhere there is a possiblity of IBM buying out AMD since their stock is in the shitter. That would truly create a monster.

Re: Phenom worth it?

The X2 5000 black does not come with a stock cooler, doesn't need it as it runs cool at stock speed. The Phenoms cannot be OC. Anything beyond 2.4 creates massive heat. 9700 and 9900 have already been cancelled because AMD cannot get a full batch of them to run stable. If you want a Phenom wait till...
