Oh Grant Rodiek how wrong you are. EA will simply fire you, hire a developer than cares less than you, and continue to crank out increasingly crappier versions of Sims until there isnt a single penny more to be squeezed from the franchise.
Oh but it's the consumers fault. /sarcasm.
I like that AMD is constantly pushing the evolution of the CPU.
That said, not sure how much this CPU will excite OCN users. Look at the computing applications the x86+ARM core is being targeted for. Unless I can do something totally unique like ALT-TAB between simultaneous OSes (Android & Windows perhaps?), what benefit will the ARM cores be to the typical PC user.
AMD does need some big business wins tho. Good luck to them.
I tested a 7950 on a Q6600, a few weeks ago, and the results were surprisingly good. Obviously benchmark scores wont compare well to anything modern, but most games will be very playable. Your son will be very happy.
Not a classy move Nvidia. These patents seem way too broad, you are initiating the lawsuit rather than using the patents to defend yourself, and you only appear interested in suing the final device manufacturer and not the companies actually producing the SoCs. Are times that rough or your lawyers that bored?
