AMD details new low-bucks, high-oomph graphics cards

BrentRBrian

Linux

It is consistently easier to get good results with AMD on Linux.

Intel insists on using graphics chips that don't support Linux.

Nvidia drivers are never on par, performance or feature wise, with their Windows counterpart.

Expect Results

Good thing these folks don't run the military, we would all be in chains.

Ever notice that the military STARTS OUT by degrading and stripping individualism from people? Why?

BECAUSE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD NO WAR WAS WON BY INDIVIDUALS.

Sometimes people are like old tube TV's, they need a GOOD SLAP to get their FOCUS back.

Microsoft talks up devices, Windows 8.1 at developer shindig

BrentRBrian

INNOVATION

They killed off all the Windows version ported to other architectures and climbed in bed with Intel. 25 years later, Intel's chips are more bloated than the Windows OS. Heat and battery life make Intel a "don't bother" in the mobile world ... and ARM takes over.

So, it is now an INNOVATION to go back 25 years and port Windows to other architectures ?

RUBBISH.

Think of where we would be if Windows ran on everything the way LINUX has? We would have CPU's that were cutting edge and efficient coming out of INTEL and 25 years of INNOVATION brought on by true competition in the hardware arena.

The only reason MOBILE is exploding is because there was an OS ported to run on ARM chips ... the same kernel and OS that runs on everything from IBM Big Iron to Raspberry PI.

We didn't get that CHIP from INTEL and we didn't get the OS from MICROSOFT.

Playing CATCH UP is not INNOVATION.

Patent System

The patent system is as old as the USA (parts of it, anyway). Long overdue for an update, unfortunately, Congress avoids anything that resembles REAL WORK.

I remember being invited to a series of high level management meetings ... lot of lip smacking ... even thought I could make out a bit of intelligent, human grade, speech, from time to time ... I took a day off ... and never went back to those level of meetings again. Problem solved.

Re: Not the same as Linux x86

Won't make much difference if you are running open source apps. Most FOSS apps are available across architectures.

But if you insist on running Proprietary x86 apps, you shouldn't be reading this article anyway ... go back to your ball and chain.
