AMD is not about to release an 8 core cpu (or any # of cores for that matter) that bests or matches a comparable Intel cpu for a significantly cheaper price. Anyone that thinks that will happen is fooling themselves.

AMD cannot afford to do otherwise if it wishes to grow its marketshare. Outside of cheapskates and fanboys, no one buys an AMD processor. The only way AMD can regain public trust AND marketshare is to get their product in to the hands of as many people as possible. Right now, no one outside of the aforementioned two subgroups is going to pick an AMD product over an Intel product.

People still remember the shitshow that was Bulldozer and their much hyped Polaris cards were also ran, middle of the road cards compared to Nvidia's offerings. Even when compared to Nvidia's previous generation which was released a year previously.

Thus, the only thing AMD can do is compete on price. It's their only in to the market at this point besides their OEM sales to Sony and Microsoft.

I'm just hoping for a Note 8. I love my Note 3 but it is loooooooong in the tooth.

The Intel Core i7-7700K is what happens when a chip company stops trying.

lol.. AMD better not fuck this up

Exactly. I have been interested in Zen/Ryzen for sometime due to AMD's commitment to bringing a cost effective 8 core CPU to the masses. They have a golden opportunity here to win in a big way on both price and capability.

Uh.. AMD has been putting out "cost-effective 8 core CPU's" for over half a decade now, the problem is their single core performance has been abysmal while Intel's skyrocketed (until they had no competition and kind of hit a plateau). I'm more interested in their recent commitment to IPC performance and getting their individual cores up to the level that Intel has, while maintaining a competitive price point. This is what will save AMD. Simply churning out "cost effective 8 core CPU's" is what got them into this position.

Cost effective also includes performance. If something is cheap but performs like dogshit, it's not cost effective.

Black Flag is the best of the lot, so far, in my opinion. Pirates = awesome, fun, and win.

That Gatebox appliance is just sad, as in depressing and not meant as insulting. How hollow and empty of a human life must be led where the only emotional stimulus comes from a set of scripted routines. Moreover, where that's the only positive emotional stimulus.

I think their CDN is hosed, depending upon where you live. I can't get the actual site to come up at all. Not on my desktop, laptop, or phone. They're not all using the same connection.

"I multithreaded the texture loading at the start of a game in order to improve performance..."

Why wasn't the entire thing multithreaded from the start? Dual and quad cores were extremely abundant when you released this game.

Add to that the F-35 is terrible at CAS and it's the alleged replacement for the A-10.

I'm not quite sure what the F-35 is actually going to achieve when it's all said and done. The Navy seems really happy with the F-18SH (and they should be, it's quite the plane)and there's plenty of life left in that airframe plus it was designed with upgradeability in mind (unlike its predecessor, the F-14).

Everything I have read about the F-35 sounds neat on paper but every time anyone has tried to make one platform perform all, or most, roles, it does none of them well. Its got a severe black eye in the public perception and it's viewed more as a millstone than as an achievement.

I read it and it lines up with what I have suspected all along that we, the US, is on the losing side of the "cyberwar".

You'd think ActiBlizzard would be thinking about a remake sometime soon.

Perhaps some knew but "Hindsight is 20/20" implies the vast majority did not. Let's be real. The game was pitched as-is at launch but delivered nothing beyond basic gameplay. There's no amount of foresight to prepare anyone for that.

I think there is if you're willing to forego the hype train. What was shown in demos and videos just wasn't technologically possible for the hardware and software we have at hand, period. Anyone who has been gaming long enough should have known that, there's tons of examples in gaming history that show that NMS is far from unique in its failings. I feel it takes a mighty leap to disregard those facts and history when you see the latest example of it coming down the pipeline.

Do I like the fact that NMS customers got screwed? On the whole, no. But I do take a bit of schadenfreude in the people whom are crying about it now when I and others told them that this was a bait and switch scheme were shouted down.

Procedurally generated, truly unique content may be possible on the hardware and with the software we have 20 years from now (outside of ASCII based efforts). It's nearly 2017 and we're struggling to get photorealistic visuals at an acceptable framerate with limited art assets.
