News: Nvidia responds to AMDs GameWorks allegations
     Thu, Jun 05 2014 | 4:26P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

NVIDIA and AMD Fight over NVIDIA GameWorks Program: Devil in the Details
     Thu, Jun 05 2014 | 4:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In my opinion, after talking with a bunch of different people on the matter, I think there was probably some merit to AMDs claims of a lock out with NVIDIAs GameWorks toolset at the outset of the program. Gamers using AMD hardware might eventually be at a direct disadvantage when a game developer uses it but in reality it is the developers decision to integrate and correct any issues. NVIDIA is in no way required to make sure that AMD gets equal optimization with GameWorks. AMD was not required to build Mantle in a way to help out NVIDIA gamers. And NVIDIA never needed to apologize for developing CUDA."

Thecus N2310 SOHO NAS Server Review: Budget Storage with Premium Features
     Thu, Jun 05 2014 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the most essential level of a networked storage drive, the N2310 performed flawlessly. It was easy to create a storage array and the NAS ran reliably during the three weeks I ran it at home. Between multiple PC`s and a couple of MacBooks it was always available on the network. I never had to restart it, and it was inaudible over the computer in the room with only the drive access sounds noticeable during use."
