Your unfounded opinions built upon a foundation of conjecture and alarmist kiltflipping has been rejected, and placed upon the waste pile where all other internet puffery goes.

Getting enough GPU power to drive all those pixels might be expensive, difficult (SLI/crossfire) and problematic with drivers not playing nice, but its at least possible. Ramming all the data for those pixels down a wire that hooks up to the display is the trick we all want to see.

This would have been great back when google was inventing the relational search engine. But now that the corporation has thrown in its hat with the regulating bodies of the real world, I can only predict that google will become the ultimate censor, finally cementing Orwell's Minsitry of Truth in the virtual world.

In addition to evidence of more tactical nukes being used in combat elsewhere and much later in history than WW2, there were also more than a thousand tests of nuclear bombs, some done underwater and leaving their highly radioactive byproducts in the sea. If we only take our information from video games, we can see that nuclear detonations cause global warming. (Sid Meyer's Civilization 2). If we examine it with careful thought and actual science, we can see that the nuclear bomb releases heat and greenhouse gases orders of magnitude higher than most anything else on the planet, excepting perhaps volcanoes, the other elephant in the room with regards to global warming. So. Before we start talking about goals and fantasies where we reverse global warming and recycle every plastic bag that comes with our shiny new computer components, let's think about whether those two degrees are because of nuclear testing and detonations.

GPU is nVidia 320m I have several dozen screenshots of the problem. Yes, saving the screen to PDF or PNG actually shows the scrambled graphics as is. It only happens after severe overheats and is easily corrected with a simple restart of the affected app (game) a full system reboot is not required.
