AMD Offers a Performance Boost, Over 20 New Features With Catalyst Omega Drivers

arbiter1 Re:Remember guys... (73 comments)

You forgot i see that Mantle is still proprietary closed source software. So they couldn't use it if they wanted to. AMD claims they will make it open but when that will happen is at best a guess since any time AMD sets a time table they miss it by least 3-4 months.

Apple Disables Trim Support On 3rd Party SSDs In OS X

arbiter1 Re:Summary is misleading, you can work around (327 comments)

Cn anyone reasonably argue that having a system highly secure for non-technical users with easy workarounds for actually technical users is a bad compromise? The people who are not technical need all the help they can get.

Keep on drinking that nasty ass koolaid apple serves. Mac OS X is no more secure then windows. Just more people look for windows flaw due to more dominate OS in the world. In a lot of ways Mac is less secure cause takes Apple So damn long to release a patch to fix a problem.

"Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday" What about the iphone 6? it was designed to steal what samsung has been doing for how long now? That would qualify as a design for not just yesturday but least 3 years ago.

Apple Doesn't Design For Yesterday

arbiter1 Re:'Backward compatibility' (370 comments)

Apple's strategy is to make their software run like ass on older hardware to force people in to upgrading as much as possible. Sad how some older mac laptops are supported better by MS then Apple who made the f'in thing.
