Submission + - Nvidia's GTX 460: Competition Once Again? (

NervousNerd writes: Nvidia's first DirectX 11 offerings ran hot and offered a negligible performance difference compared to ATI's Radeon HD 5800 series for the cost. Also missing was the $200 mid-range part. But that stopped when Nvidia released the GTX 460 based on a modified version of their infamous Fermi architecture. The GTX 460 offers incredible performance for the price and soundly beats ATI's $200 offering the HD 5830.

Submission + - Bad Company 2 No Better Than MW2 After All.. (

An anonymous reader writes: Remember when DICE placated Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as being better because it had dedicated servers? While it still may have dedicated servers (that are hosted by EA's partners), it appears that there will be no new map packs until Bad Company 2: Vietnam is released later this year for $30 and includes 4 maps. Quite naturally players are up in arms over it because there are still bugs that haven't been removed since the game was released back in March. That's too bad since Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield 2 were excellent games for their time.

Submission + - What's Happening With SkyOS?

Stephen writes: I paid to be on the SkyOS beta team several years ago. Development has been "suspended" and the lead developer has not answered any emails that I've sent him. From what I've heard, a good portion of the SkyOS code is actually just lifted GPL stuff. Does any other Slashdotter know what's up with SkyOS?
