News Comments > AMD Calls Out NVIDIA; Former NVIDIA Dev Calls BS

PhysX does work universally, you just have to do it in the CPU with AMD, but it works. I've done it. It only works on nVidia hardware because it's their technology, and they can dictate who gets to use it. I'm sure that even if nVidia offered to license it out, AMD wouldn't pay the fees, and so we'd still be in the same place we are now.

Since then, I think they may have changed the drivers so you can't do that anymore, but that could just be to alleviate any responsibility from people breaking their systems and then trying to blame nVidia or something, but I won't speculate, unlike what some seem to want to do in this thread...
Well except it doesn't work universally. If it worked universally then I could slap a 520GT in my machine and let it do the physx calculations, but I can't. The reason? Because nvidia deliberately crippled their drivers, going as far as reversing gravity and introducing timebombs to slow users machines down to a crawl. If you had both a amd and nvidia card.

So for those that were wondering whether or not that trick worked on the EU key? Yep. Got my key from GMG, and it worked fine on my NA Uplay account. But GMG sure fucked up the release time. Aussies are just getting theirs now almost 18 hours later, and I'm still waiting on my season pass key. And no one got it at midnight except west coasters.

Samsung is the one copying Apple...Its the other way around.
You mean "round corners" that samsung had before apple? This could very much bite apple if they want a retrial, just think how much they'll be frothing in the mouth if they loose this time.

It's actually pretty decent, compared to the full blown CGI stuff that's toss out on a regular basis these days.

He's also a bit incorrect in a few spots...one in particular is the comment about how you aren't alerted about deaths on the island due to a deficit. You still get popups about the deaths (lack of medical coverage, starvation) in the PIP popups. Matter of fact, I do believe anything that occurs on my island that is pertinent to my attention needs is shown in that little window, all without having to open the almanac, albeit I still do that out of habit anyways.
One of the things I do like now is that protests are actually informative, and you can simply pay the protesters off.

Only hit the second mission but so far I like it, getting used to the whole change in production/recon makes it a bit more intersting as well. Also noticed that mines aren't static, if you discover a mine, reload and rediscover it you can get something else.

Some bugs, such as it reverting colour/brightness controls every time it starts. I've got my brightness/colour controls set low and lower on my monitor because of photophobia protip: never get a head injury. So I get tired quickly while playing and it gives me a massive headache. But the jokes are quite good.

Oh and swiss bank account? Now useful! Required to upgrade your dynasty.

Minnesota bans antibacterial soap. Took long enough, there's enough studies out there showing that triclosan can cause antibiotic immunity.

My money's on "extremely overhyped." I love that the PC is finally getting the recognition it deserves from the terrified console community though. Rightly so. Consoles have never had the power to compete, so they pretend like PC gaming is "dead" to make themselves feel better.
Lot of console fanboys have finally clued in that PC's really are better for gaming. It's the die hard people who haven't clued in that a 2 year old GPU is more powerful than "next gen consoles."

According to that reddit thread, uPlay is region-free. Tempting. I'll wait for release reviews.
Find out soon enough, I already contacted their support and got pretty much the same answer as the other poster. If the key doesn't work, to simply contact them and they'll exchange it.

i hope Windows 9 is 3D (and no i do not mean stereoscopic, i mean a 3D UI/UX and not 2D interface.)
Won't happen until there's widespread adaption of 3D UI's, and the requirement to wear shit on your face is gone. That along with the headaches, eye strain, migraines, and who the fuck knows what else.

It was cold and rainy yesterday, and it's cold and sunny today. Bleh. At least its supposed to warm up by next Saturday. Sigh. The winter that would not go away.

And lol at the woman who remarks that the lions killing the antelope is "sick". So wtf are you on a safari tour in that case?
We got all of 3 days above 20C here in SW Ontario, and one day where it was 28C in the last week. It's been below 20C for the last 3 days, and will be until monday. I get the feeling that this summer is going to be one of those unusually "wet and cold" ones. They almost always are when spring doesn't start until almost the may 24 weekend.

I'd hate to see what she'd do when a brown bear chases a deer onto the road and savages it in front of traffic.

They stated that the average bundle is now 189 channels, of which people watch about 17 at most. And they wonder why people are cutting the cord because they're not offering a la carte.
The last time I watched TV was when I was traveling down to Florida to do some estate work for my grandmother when she was dying. I stopped in two places Dry Ridge, KY(satellite) and Dalton, GA.(cable), between 90-100 channels, and not a damned thing on but reality TV shows even on Discovery, Military, and NatGO. I think I watched both for an hour while when I got back from eating dinner, and promptly got on my laptop and played FTL for 3 hours.

The industry is killing itself, and they have no idea why people are cutting the cord. But they think that it has something to do with people being cheap. Not that there's nothing but crap on TV, hell when I was in Florida, the only thing I watched in Zephyrhills was the local Fox and ABC stations, and that was for the news.

To toss in, I don't know why companies in the US aren't following the lead of Teksavvy up here in Canada. They've got a nifty program called Zap the cap, basically, you get a reduction in speed during primetime(8pm-12am), and you get unlimited on any plan you're on. If you don't want to use it, you don't have to. You also get free downloads between 2am-8am. For me, I don't use my internet during primetime, since my primetime is 12am-9am. Well I do have an idea why, you guys don't have the competition you used to. I remember when you could get DSL for $9/mo, or cable for $19/mo back before they said that incumbents no longer had to sell to 3rd parties. Up here in Canadaland we only got rid of that in the last few years.
