Its not what the law is intended to be used but how it can be used. Just cause you claim a law you want passed is to prevent child porn which for a while of laws like SOPA or PIPA. That was what they claimed the law was to prevent, it was written could be abused and used against just about anything they wanted to use it for. DMCA was wrote to remove illegal illegal content from sites, but language was so vague its been abused by RIAA/MPAA groups to allow them to extort money from people.

970 is only effected cause a shader core and ROP are disabled cause they are bad. the last 512mb ram shares a cluster so its slower cause that. Reviewers have test this and only time it became a problem is running super high rez with MSAA and scaling, pretty much to point probably running sub 40fps anyway.

With the reactors on board most ships they got the power, without the need for large shells with/or gun power taking up space. They can have much more ammo on board since they only need the shell part not a ton of gun powder to get shell from A to B. On top of much more power behind a rail gun shot makes armor of another ship well worthless.

o please, intel has superior cpu, straight out. AMD hasn't had a decent cpu since athlon xp/64. Blaming intel for AMD failure to innovate their cpu is straight up retarded. Intel has the market share they do cause they have made cpu's people want, not slow power hungry piles of silicon.

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
