Raspberry Pi A+ Details Leaked

Narishma Re:Will it have the same garbage CPU? (141 comments)

I don't think they will jump directly to ARMv8 because of the price point. Unless they wait 3 or 4 years for their next update, I don't see ARMv8 SoCs being cheap enough to use.

Raspberry Pi A+ Details Leaked

Narishma Re:Down side (141 comments)

There's nothing stopping you from running other operating systems on the Pi. There are plenty of them around and you can write your own if you want, all the necessary documentation is available, or you can just look at the Linux source code if it's not clear enough for you.

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.
