  1. Based on pure numbers, sure, but in all around...

    Based on pure numbers, sure, but in all around performance and feedback, nvidia's drivers are arguably the best you can use in linux. Intel's drivers (as a whole) are 2nd best, but depending on the...

    As others have pointed out, vsync can have detrimental effects on input latency. Also, there was a time when it actually had a serious negative impact on performance, though I haven't seen a game...

    Eh... it's not quite that simple. In general, yes, the higher the frequency, the more power consuming it will be. But with GPUs this is rather difficult to represent, because they're highly...

    @sdack
    I understand what you're saying and I think you make some good points, but I think what you're forgetting is, in Linus' eyes, gcc 4.9 was released without even being properly tested. If its...

    Unlike most abbreviated terms on this site, ACPI is a pretty common one. Not knowing it is kind of the same idea as not knowing what SCSI is - doesn't mean you are directly involved with it on a...

    I'm not a fan of intel but I think intel deserves a little more credit. When you consider the clock rates and the relatively low number of transistors involved in intel's IGPs, they're actually...

    @89c51
    AMD, from what I heard, isn't that far behind. Neither is nouveau. With intel doing most of the mesa work, all the AMD devs have to do is add support for it in their drivers. That being...

    Ugh I had a MK808 not that long ago, but got rid of it. I'd have loved to try this on it, because the android setups were crap (decent performance but a serious lack of drivers) and installing linux...

    It is legal to do that, but it doesn't matter if it requires the Steam client in order to play them.

    Blu Ray is ideal for people who don't have high-speed internet, and people who prefer having physical backups. I personally am a little wary of online services, because if ANYTHING happens to them,...

    Blu ray was so poorly executed. It had so much potential to be in frequent use but companies like Sony had to make it such an expensive format. The prices of Blu Ray drives and discs today are what...

    Lol that too - I own a 6300 myself, at 4.4GHz (with cool'n'quiet on - I'd rather get power savings than the extra 200mhz). I could maybe push it to 4.5 if I upped the voltage a little but I'm...

    The pentium beats the i3 when highly overclocked. When you consider the money you waste on a heatsink and power consumption, this isn't really that impressive. If I have a discrete GPU, intel's IGP...

    I still can't get a clear answer - do current DX11/OGL4.x cards support DX12 and OGL5? And, I still don't understand why this needs a new specification - why can't older versions just simply be...

    I understand what you're saying, and to a degree, I agree. But, what bothers me about the Pi is as a supposedly non-profit product, for an additional $15 there are better alternatives. The Pi is...

    Undermining other OSes and correcting people into saying "GNU Linux" (which, as stated previously, isn't even completely correct) is exactly why people hate the linux community - it makes us look...

    Even though I primarily use AMD cards now, I'm a fan of physx. It puts GREAT use to retired GPUs and it's one of those "why not?" things to add to a game. If you're lucky to have support for it,...

    That's what I was thinking, except a little more abstracted since it's a bit more specific.
