Narishma Re:Performance improvements (56 comments)

Google Announces Motorola-Made Nexus 6 and HTC-Made Nexus 9

Narishma Re:Also announced Nexus player (201 comments)

Do we know it's 64-bit? Some Atoms are artificially crippled to 32-bit-only.

Raspberry Pi Sales Approach 4 Million

Narishma Re:That's easy! (146 comments)

That means they'll have to go with Intel. I predict a noisy fan and a quadrupling of the price.

Ubisoft Claims CPU Specs a Limiting Factor In Assassin's Creed Unity On Consoles

Narishma Re:Crappy programming? (338 comments)

That's much more likely to be the case than whatever nonsense some PR person is feeding these journalists. Ubisoft isn't known for their optimization prowess.

NVIDIA Launches Mobile Maxwell GeForce GTX 980M and GTX 970M Notebook Graphics

Narishma Re:680M is previous generation? (29 comments)

Rebranding is widespread in the mobile (as in laptop) GPU market. The 7xxM is probably just a rebrand of the 6xxM series.

Update: Raspberry Pi-Compatible Development Board Cancelled

Narishma Re:There is almost nothing right in this headline. (165 comments)

They don't mention where they got their first batch of chips. It's very likely they got it from some third party since Broadcom doesn't seem to deal in small quantities. When the 3rd party supply dried, they went to Broadcom and were probably told to get lost.

Update: Raspberry Pi-Compatible Development Board Cancelled

Narishma Re:Broadcom won't release documentation ever (165 comments)

- The GPU documentation, but I've never seen the SGX documentation in any SoC TRM, or for any other GPU

Some documentation is available for the GPU in the Raspberry Pi.

California Man Sues Sony Because Killzone: Shadowfall Isn't Really 1080p

Narishma Re:That's a garbage lawsuit (286 comments)

I didn't describe anything, and if you still think it's 1080i, then either you didn't understand how it works correctly, or the person who described it to you got it wrong. I posted a link earlier to the game developer's blog where the technique is described in detail: https://www.killzone.com/en_GB...
