I wish him well. Enjoyed the forum. I always thought he gave both Intel and AMD a fair shake in cpu reviews. Likewise Nvidia and AMD in gpu reviews.

We sometimes get very cynical on these forums and forget these are human beings who need to provide for their families.

And nothing of value was lost.
Be it in terms of reviews that even i knew were lacking, be it in terms of a front page simply re-pasting other sites' "news", or of a forum that i frankly found very.. pan-American; very pan-American; that wonderful, simultaneous combination of innocence/ignorance and self-proclaimed wisdom (and the inevitable rage, true rage and lashing out, when shown for what it is [as is often the case with most innocent forms when 'exasperated', yes? And yet..]) that's so rare in most other cultures, but alas.. not in all; evident there in all its glory, though what for is for each to figure out.
But going back to 'a' technical website's purpose, as i can see this coming up too, perhaps we will one day realise that plurality alone does not guarantee much.

What i personally focus on is a corp giant's drawing more and more "influencers" in; and that's bad, potentially detrimental to the consumer.
You'll always find people willing to 'listen', nature of the beast so to speak. So the more you have shouting whatever it is you want them to shout.. Add to that their knowing whom to shout it to and how (they didn't hand pick them for their looks), and you get some very interesting potential right there. For Intel that is, not us.

* nothing new of course, merely the past repeating itself albeit in new forms, as we didn't have "social media" back then. They'd grab them from newspapers and magazines, use them for the exact same purposes; and most of the times, with the exact same outcomes, but hey, who pays attention to history anyway)
** to the kind-hearted poster above me, many ways to make money.. many ways. This superficial, dangerously "broad" justification of a "man's needing to eat" is something you might want to reconsider.. for your benefit, not mine.

Pride, honour and purity.

Having a hard time understanding the jokes about noone being affected.. Hardforum is FAR busier than OCN has been in recent years. Feels like an arid wasteland here 😕

In fact I think half of OCNs past users moved to [H]. A good test is to just state an opinion and see how long it takes for somebody who signed up in the past 3 years to yell at you!!! I kid I kid.

Oh well..

Who knows -- it could be that surge of additional users that tipped him onto Intel's radar. Given the title, sounds exactly like Intel wants to leverage his fan-base.

Too bad

I agree with you here. I'm just not sure the sound byte, video first transition has been a good thing for the enthusiast community. To much "cult of personality" not enough substantive journalism.

Then it makes further sense because just like Anand who left for Apple, Scott who left TR for AMD and Ryan who left PCPer for Intel, it just further shows that the traditional on-line tech press didn't successfully transition to the video first, written article second model, like Gamers Nexus does and thus a well paying career path for a senior member in an overcrowded space is only to be found by moving to higher grounds.

With Keller and Koduri over at Intel, it's certainly an exciting place to work at, with them entering the GPU market next year and with the inevitable CPU arch revamp that is due in the next few years. About the HardForum though, it will raise a few doubts to have an Intel employee being an admin though. Kyle always did what he wanted, but he will be a lot more scrutinized from now on, as there are other interests at play. It will be a privileged place to get first hand info about Intel though, so it has a good chance to survive without the anchor site active - and what better way to do his new job than keep his current community?

Which brings me to the last point, which is the importance of having an independent discussion forum; independent from publications and owner brands / major sponsors.

Funny how so many were calling him an AMD shill for so long.

Although this won't prove the brainless wrong anyway.

From a different point of view what better way for Intel to silence their opposition than to buy them out and convert them.
