  1. You don't need a big IDE for code completion....

    You don't need a big IDE for code completion. Sublime does this very well, Vim and Gedit have plugins just to mention a few. Developers may use whatever they prefer, but when it comes to code...
  2. Loads of programmers don't use an IDE at all,...

    Loads of programmers don't use an IDE at all, especially on other platforms than Windows using an IDE is the exception rather than the norm. Good debugging features is a must, but that should be a...
  3. I'm not completely sure what you mean by...

    I'm not completely sure what you mean by development tools, but I certainly agree with the importance of quality implementations. I would argue we don't necessarily need development "tools", but...
  4. AMD has promised multiple times to open source...

    AMD has promised multiple times to open source Mantle, and didn't they even talk about Linux support some time ago?

    Mantle is already obsolete by OpenGL 4.5 and will be compared to Direct3D 12....
  5. GLSL currently have like 6 different shader...

    GLSL currently have like 6 different shader types, and then we have OpenCL. There is really no reason why we should have so many of these, so in essence what we really need is a C GPU language you...
  6. True. Since DirectX 10+ and OpenGL 3+ is very...

    True.

    Since DirectX 10+ and OpenGL 3+ is very similar in terms of low-level functionality, and Nvidia has developed a driver model which implements this as Cg. This is the reason why Nvidia has...
  7. There is no future for Mantle, it's already...

    There is no future for Mantle, it's already obsolete with Direct3D 12 and OpenGL 4.5.

    Anyway, if "glNext" should end up being sort of "mantle"-like, it would be a step backwards. Every GPU...
  8. Lot's of GNU packages are in need of overhaul or...

    Lot's of GNU packages are in need of overhaul or replacement and LLVM is a bigger load of crap than GCC, but for now we still need both for lots of uses. But we need to get past bickering about...
  9. True, once Nvidia is done fine tuning the memory...

    True, once Nvidia is done fine tuning the memory allocation this memory restriction will be completely transparent to the user, since the GPU memory does store a lot of relatively static data during...

    Unfortunately there is no other brand with...

    Unfortunately there is no other brand with consistent build quality like the Thinkpads. There might be single models from HP or some other brands which come close to or is comparable to the...

    Even old Nvidia GPUs hold up great. A new low-end GPU like 830M will offere 3-4x performance on top of that. But most important of all, nothing can beat a GPU with dedicated memory to avoid...
  12. The people beating up Nvidia is the same kind of...

    The people beating up Nvidia is the same kind of people beating up the best student in the class for making everyone else look bad.
  13. Veske is right, this is hardly an upgrade from...

    Veske is right, this is hardly an upgrade from GTX 760. But also keep in mind that GTX 960 retail for $50 less, so it's probably targeting a lower market segment.

    I guess most sensible gamers...

    No, OpenGL 4.5 is more featured than Direct3D 12. Btw, Mantle is derived from Direct3D 12, not wise versa.
  15. Nvidia is in fact one of the main contributors...

    Nvidia is in fact one of the main contributors behind behind OpenCL, you'll have to blame the rest of the board for holding the advancement back.
  16. Thinkpads are of great build quality, but I think...

    Thinkpads are of great build quality, but I think the Carbon is the wakest choise in the lineup. It's slick and nice, but it's not suited for much more than light surfing og document writing. The T...

    You got it mixed up. Adaptive Sync is the spec, and a part of the DP standard. Both G-Sync and FreeSync are brand names which implements of this spec, among other features. G-sync is nothing new, it...

    Anyone switching from PHP to Java for bug or stability problems needs to overhaul their web application, not do a downgrade to Java.
  19. You are completely disregarding the basic freedom...

    You are completely disregarding the basic freedom for each user to utilize the hardware to their needs. Nvidia's official driver implements more open standards than the so called "open" driver, and...
  20. All three major vendors use proprietary firmware...

    All three major vendors use proprietary firmware for their GPUs/CPUs/APUs, so dropping an Nvidia GPU for "openness" would make them hypocrites. Including an discrete GPU were the only thing which...
