All it means is that you are told something or saw something you aren't to discuss.
Also, you're "sure your under some NDA"? You don't know? Sorry, I know exactly what NDA's I am under and for what. If you don't know if you are under an NDA or not, you aren't.
Look, Mahigan already admitted to working for Team Red. Now he is saying he can't talk about it or who he works for? He is obviously biased, which is why EVERYONE should take what he says with a grain of salt.

I mentioned that batches needed to be threaded in increments of 64 (256 often being ideal). When someone posted over at Beyond3D that "Mahigan had concerns" someone hit back that I once worked for ATi therefore I was biased and my concerns didn't matter.
There is a lot of hostility towards me. There has been from the moment I posted my theory. I'm not going to change the story, as it unfolded. Now on with the testing.
It's been an interesting 2.5 months since he showed up at the OCN door step to be sure. If I didn't know better, I'd swear that he is AMD_Roy.
What I'm about to say is mainly for the people who don't follow what he has said over the past 2.5 months closely. It is intended to be as a public service announcement, and not a personal attack. I'm simply providing the publicly available knowledge and a bit of logic, so feel free to draw your own conclusions.
He has admitted to working for ATI in the past, and now admits to working with some other company that is in a similar field now. That is a fact (if you take him at his word).
He has made post after post in his short 2.5 month OCN tenure to try to say he is unbiased. More to the point, he has said that he isn't biased, but rather just very experienced and just giving his opinion and he relies on his vast knowledge and intelligence. Now it comes out he is an insider (again, if you believe what he said). So if he is an insider, then how smart and "predictive" do you have to be if you have access to inside information? To me, that is just trying to pass yourself off as something you aren't. Further, if you take him at his word about his NDA's, then you have to wonder how trust worthy he really is since he is basically violating the NDA (or at least the spirit of them) by coming on here and disseminating that information. If he isn't under NDA and he is just giving his opinion, then once again, he isn't being honest. Then there is the possibility that he is a plant by AMD or a close company, and he is just AMD_Roy 2.0. Etc. Regardless of what the real case is, I personally don't trust or believe a word this 2.5 month alias who came to OCN like gang busters on AMD's side. "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." - William Shakespeare.
Again, this is just personal observations and basic logic for the people who don't follow people too closely. Draw your own conclusions.

It's funny how now his predictions weren't ever predictions at all, and he's been on the inside the whole time.
And this dude says he's impartial and unbiased... It seems it's his job to taint Nvidia's image
Exactly. IMO, what ever "credibility" he thinks he has is pretty much out the window. He comes on like he is the most fair and honest "Graphics Card Aficionado", but in reality, he is one of the most partisan PLANTS there has ever been on this board.Edited by 47 Knucklehead - 10/21/15 at 5:58am
