  1. Isn't Cayman just Barts with more shaders?...

    Isn't Cayman just Barts with more shaders? They're both 6xxx series, Northern Islands. The driver support shouldn't be that hard unless I'm missing something.

    AMD's Hemlock cards will have perform over 5 TFlops. Fermi is projected to do 1.5 given its shader count (512) and architecture, with a similar die size. FLOPS isn't everything but as a measure of...

    @Ex-Cyber

    I agree - look how much yields suffered with the very small chips GT216 and GT218. They should have been launched around the same time as AMD's first 40nm in March (HD4770, which was...

    Now Nvidia is suggesting Q1 2010. "Ramp" usually comes well before retail release for all CPUs and GPUs I've heard of.

    “Next year it is going to be an interesting first quarter because, in fact,...

    If such large performance improvements over GCC are possible, why has GCC itself not been changed? It's not short of developers, money or expertise.

    If a feature isn't ready in time, it isn't merged in during that window. Each release of X.Org will have the features that become stable during its development period. This works for every other FOSS...

    They might sell proprietary apps through it. Or perhaps paid services associated with the package you're looking at.

    Don't get excited. Everything else points to it being a derivative of their current integrated graphics. It won't run games or anything.

    For anyone who's interested, current rumours put Evergreen (The internal codename's not R800 as far as I know) in mid-September. It's a 40nm part so from transistor count alone it should be twice as...

    What? I'm against everything I listed; i.e. I don't want it changed from what it is now. I much prefer GNOME's feel to KDE.

    I think this is doing more harm than good. There's the rename thing, just because Windows does it, and also the proposal to make double clicking on archives auto-extract it into a new folder. I want...

    Based on the single game test (and the fact that Shanghai is the same silion as the new Phenom II Deneb), the new Phenoms will be 10% faster clock for clock. That would put the 3.0GHz Phenom II...

    Would you rather have every game at slow but playable framerates or very few games, at good framerates but with no graphics quality.

    Using make uninstall and then winetools is just as easy as .deb unistall and then .deb build. Either way, I need to press a few buttons for uninstallation and still have to compile and install...

    Because I'm not using a package format - I'm compiling from source. There are packages availible, but take a week to come out with the project being on a two-week release cycle.
