Microsoft says multi core systems are useless
without multi threaded applications. Epic
does not think much of the upcoming Nintendo Revolution console.
While speaking at the IGN live event, Reign offered to the audience, "Don't
kid yourself - you're going to see more gimmicky, crappy, cheap, I-wish-I-hadn't-bought-it
gimmick games based around that controller than you can ever possibly imagine."
ATi has just broken the 1
GHz GPU mark with an Intel style approach. ;-)
At the same time, ATI was bi**hing over its 90 nano baby, the "Fudo
rocks nVIDIA's butt in Quake 4" prototypes just couldn't get past the 500MHz
barrier. However, once the guy which deserves the highest company bonus in 2005
solved the problem, the clocks started climbing. First, it was 600MHz. Then,
650MHz. A lot of samples hit 700MHz, but attainable yields held at 625MHz, which
is the shipping speed of the yet-to-be-shipped Radeon X1800XT.
