    From what I've gathered has AMD been using these "dumb" buffers for a while in their driver. I am curious what the deal with these is (possibly less stress on CPU caches because of the combined, write-through behaviour) and why Nvidia waited this long to use them.

      Mentioned this before, but a reminder just in case. I am deliberately using PrivacyBadger instead of an ad-blocker, but still get a message on Phoronix asking me to turn off my ad-blocker. Perhaps you should look into this, and see if you really are loosing money on visitors using PrivacyBadger who don't actually want that. If there are more than a few then fixing that might be a low-hanging fruit for a bit of extra revenue.

        For what it's worth, I think that the volume of articles in July has been just fine. If this is a more sustainable pace for you, I'm in favour of maintaining it (and I'm sure Fatima is as well). That said, I'm sure you need the money anyhow, I might make an additional donation on top of the existing premium subscription later today.
