AMD's New Flagship HD 6970 Tested

ttnuagmada Re:Drivers! (152 comments)

Crossfire changes this significantly. Also, updating their drivers is risky business. I've ended up in situations a couple of times where I basically had to reinstall windows to get things working right.

The 5-Year Console Cycle Is Dead

ttnuagmada Re:It is all about resolution (422 comments)

The Cell merely gives devs more options for squeezing out better graphics than the RSX can do on its own, since that's the only real way to even use all of the Cell's SPE's. This isn't something to be impressed by either. Both consoles are definitely completely GPU bound. 3 CPU cores is plenty for a console. Had Sony gone with a more standard 2-3 core CPU, they could have spent more resources on a better GPU which would have had a much larger impact on the PS3's graphical abilities.

The Universe Damaged By Observation?

ttnuagmada what? (521 comments)

do people not even understand their own field? "observation" isnt talking about humans literally observing quantum particles, its talking about them interacting with things allowing us to infer exact information about them. a quantum particle is going to colapse if it interacts with anything at all, not just a humans eyeball.

Dark Energy not necessary after all?

ttnuagmada ttnuagmada writes  |  more than 6 years ago

ttnuagmada (1064148) writes "'Dark energy', which researchers have spent years trying to fathom, isn't necessary to explain our universe after all, according to a new solution to Einstein's theory of general relativity. This challenges the notion that dark energy makes up 76% of our universe, as many cosmologists believe."
