First, it was a joke. Second, that's not how DLC works. DLC is very specifically extra content, above and beyond the base game. There is always better and worse DLC, and I don't approve of the trend of releasing shit tons of it for every little thing. But, the company is providing the base game as a complete experience and DLC isn't needed to enjoy the game.

IGPs are only good for games that require very little gpu power, like older titles. I have an AMD 290... and I have to juggle quality and performance @ 1080p. IGPs don't even come close. Bare minimum quality settings on a top of the line IGP will get you about 30fps on a relatively modern game. They're what you use if you have no option, or don't game.

The use of jury nullification is long standing, sure. But, just because it's done doesn't mean it's always correct. Legally, it's a big gray area. For example, New Hampshire has a law on record specifically allowing attorneys to inform juror's of their right to nullify. I also quoted bits above that specifically mention it's prohibited. Ultimately, the act of nullification requires one to go against the juror's oath. That oath would not be part of the process, if it wasn't intended to be taken seriously.

Not knowing the specific deals in your case, but finding someone guilty of a standing law is different than being in support of the law itself. I believe US drug laws need to be changed, but they are the law. One should not be excused of a crime, solely because you don't believe it should be a crime. I know I personally would not be able to find someone innocent of a crime they committed, solely based on my opinion of the law itself.

From the summary: AMD partnered with Hynix and a number of companies to help define the HBM specification and design a new type of memory chip with low power consumption and an ultra-wide bus width, which was eventually adopted by JEDEC 2013

AMD started this with Hynix 4 years ago, so obviously the tech itself isn't brand new. The new news, is the pending release of hardware using said technology.
