My 8600m GT may have been broken too I guess.

Anyway they have Phys-X, better OpenGL drivers, more OS support, lower power usage, (alternative methods for anti-aliasing and lighting too I believe but I don't know what AMD have there) and G-sync. Better proprietary drivers. Still not at least as good open ones is a fair thing to say?

AMD have Mantle and Adaptive-Sync and .. ? Worse drivers even though their open ones may be better than NvidiaÂs open ones.

Mantle I suppose will be pretty irrelevant vs new DirectX 12 and OpenGL.
Just as G-sync should be allowed to become irrelevant if Adaptive-Sync let you make the same thing in a standard way.

Just suck that Nvidia is big and common enough that they may get away with not supporting it and do their own thing :(

19 September 2014 - Secret press conference - Nvidia will support Adaptive-Sync:
25 September 2014 - Nvidia won't offer support for Adaptive-Sync but will instead continue with their G-sync and hence never implemented DVI 1.2a support:

Both link in Swedish.

Nvidia - Assholes. If true.

I'd say price point matter more at this point.

I would prefer to have an Nvidia card and I would prefer to have monitor synced to the GPU.

As is Adaptive-Sync may be a standard of DisplayPort 1.2a but even the new Nvidia cards only have DisplayPort 1.2 and who knows what Nvidia will do. It suck to get an Nvidia card if they are retarded and decide not to support Adaptive-Sync but I don't want anything else either because Nvidia make the best products. :/

Some time some idiot lectured me using this: .. except it's not the same thing (that person may have also lectured me about DX12 which may have been correct (in that all Nvidia DX11 graphic cards will support DX12.))

I guess it would benefit all the buyers if they don't push up the price too much then again if the price is seen as low / in a way there one would had wanted more I guess one may want to pay more (then again it's ok getting less stock which you think you can do say 20% return on than twice as many but which you can only do 10% on ..)

Then again at least when it comes to purchasing lots of stocks many institutions are ok with paying a premium over the regular price to get what they want and hence paying "too much" relative the regular market price.

I don't know whatever the price normally end up being lower or higher than what the stocks will trade for later on.

I also think it differ how it's done. I don't know for sure but it may be the case that here (Sweden) it may be more common to give rights to purchase the new stocks for the old stock holders whereas say in the US it may be more common to look for institutional purchasers of them.

Both methods exist at least. There's also the possibility of just offering shares for a fixed price and then people can sign themselves up for interest and then have a lottery or give them the stocks they could get out from the ones one wanted to create.

I will get a machine with at least 32 GB of RAM.

This one have 8 GB.

And it's a Windows 8.1 machine not a mac. I think I said that. Possibly not just giving general experience what do I know.

I don't know whatever it support 32 bit plugins and whatever my bankid plugin is 32 bit and whatever that could increase the memory load more.

My feel for it was that it used more RAM at least.
