    Unity will likely have to adapt their business model, but they're doing fine now and will continue to do so. Unreal doesn't have the reach or the ease-of-use that Unity does, and in particular Unity...
  2. That's not really how consoles work -- I have it...

    That's not really how consoles work -- I have it on good word that the PS4 low-level API is an awful lot like Mantle. Xbox Developers have D3D.11x, which has capabilities beyond D3D11.2 on PC to...

    My own speculation is that "Vulkan" is not the name of the new API, but the name of a technology/tool for deep inspection of GL usage -- a reference to the "Mind-meld" such a tool would have with the...

    Thanks for the link, I appreciate it.

    I guess such problems don't really concern me too much. This sounds like a faulty firmware that just bricked the drive, which is far less evil than a firmware...

    Samsung's always been reliable for me.

    I've heard about possible performance bugs in the firmware, but not anything about data loss, full or partial. I generally consider Samsung to be among the few reliable SSD drives (along with Intel...
  6. So we can't take the upper bound and call it...

    So we can't take the upper bound and call it accurate, but we *can* take the lower bound and call it accurate? Hardly seems fair. It would seem to be more accurate to say that single-threaded,...

    RMS doesn't think that. RMS, if he had is ideal world, *maybe* wants *you* to have control over *your* PC. But in amongst that, he really only wants you the freedom of choice between GPL FLOSS...

    In what way is extending the freedom you enjoy to make one choice to another person to make a different choice, anarchy?

    The very essence of freedom is predicated on choice. To have the ability to...

    LLVM long ago stopped trying to be a Virtual Machine platform and shifted its focus towards being a great compiler framework, which is a goal its executed on in spades. The Moniker 'LLVM' is...

    Its almost certain that GLNext will crib as much from Mantle as D3D12 has -- and that's not a dig at any of the three. Mantle essentially said that modern GPUs, driven by emphasis on GPGPU...
  12. Technical Specifications are not "the standard"

    The Filesystem Technical Specification is explicitly *not* part of the standard, perhaps in the future, but not yet. That's why its called a Technical Specification, and isn't being rolled into...
  13. Denver core size isn't an issue.

    I wouldn't call it enormous, not for the high-end devices this is intended for. The Denver 64-bit CPU core area seems to be a little larger than twice the area of the CPU cores in the quad-32-bit K1....
  14. Nay-saying for nay-saying's sake

    But why should it be that way and remain so? Because people like you think its unnecessary and that there are better tools today? Its not for you to decide what benefits others see in technologies...

    AMP *is* a standard, or aims to be more or less,...

    AMP *is* a standard, or aims to be more or less, even if de facto for now. Seems silly to argue that once any acceptable standard emerges that one shouldn't look to improve upon it in various ways....
