    Intel builds new fabs on regular basis or upgrades em. That's how it works, you can not keep the fabs for long time. If AMD would ask Intel if they want to produce their chips it would be very...

    You forget 10000 ppl at Globalfoundaries and and lots at TSMC as AMD was splitted and Nvidia never had own fabs. So you compare apples with oranges. Comparing AMD to Nvidia might be better. I don't...

    @SSX

    Intel mobile SoC are pretty expensive, what you think is much is less than 4% marketshare. The new Atom x3/x5 do not use Intel HD gfx and are not produced by Intel itself, but they are...

    @eydee

    You said Steam would count Optimus as Intel and I just explained the case where this is impossibe if you parse glxinfo (or the OpenGL renderer).

    You can be sure I know how this works, but he mentioned Bumbebee and that works differently. I can configure Optimus with Kanotix Spitfire as well, but it would not work with pure Debian because of a...

    @eydee

    It would be better it you think before you write. Bumblebee works with an on-demand started 2nd xserver as the Nvidia hardware is switched oft with bbswitch while not used. That's...

    It is very simple to detect if Optimus is available. In case of Linux glxinfo would not show anything from Intel if "xrandr --setprovideroutputsource" is used. Can't be hard to check on Windows.

    Well Intel gpus are heavyly used, most common are Ivy Bridge (HD 4000,HD 2500) and Haswell (HD 4400) - they are used more than the first integrated AMD (HD 8800 series) - which is interesting as they...

    Very impressive that Valve pays for development of a Vulkan driver. Must be a LunarG project, would really like to test it myself. Better now than tomorrow ;) Is it the "standard" DOTA2 beta?

    @Passso

    Does the ICON really matter? For me only the quality of the ports does. And many could be done better.

    Witcher 2 is a 32 bit app via a wrapper, can use at max 4 gb ram, crashed very...

    @Geri

    Is your own engine running too slow or do you think it is fast enough? Many engines that are used for shooters or in future for VR really need maximum speed - did you think of 4k gaming yet?...

    These are low cost chips, maybe the HD graphics part is too huge. Smaller die, more profit - in that market only huge numbers count.

    This device has very powerful hardware for games but I think it will be too expensive against a FireTV - at least for streaming (think of Limelight).

    Valve is in a very good position to give away an engine for free, revenue comes directly from sales, but it is limited to fewer target devices - why would you give away an engine for free to sell...

    I expected a streaming solution but not only powered by a dedicated Linux box but maybe together with a BT joypad just as app for Android and iOS and Windows 10. Valve has the opportunity to create a...

    I don't get the point why you should not pay for something you use to create cool things and earn money. Basically you have got several engines out there and you can choose whatever suites best....

    Well Nvidia had at least a special multithreaded rendering mode since driver 310. Made for source engine based games first. AMD created some profiles but the csgo binary still has no special...

    Well Nvidia does not use the term GCN, but i think the current WDDM 2.0 is working with Kepler+Maxwell, most likely Fermi will do as well (all DX11) later.

    @bridgman

    If AMD wanted to support Mantle for LONG time then

    A) Full specs would have be provided at release
    B) Linux binaries would exist (since the beginning)

    It was 100 % designed as...

    It is a wise marketing step to open the code for everybody. It should definitely increase the number of new multiplatform games. I think it was a great fault that Unigine did nothing like that...
