what alien technology they reverse engineered to come up with this?
This is why I have always bought and continue to buy AMD, and the dirty games played by Intel......
AMD has trumpeted its next-generation GPU architecture, painting the design as a radical departure that has one foot in the graphics world and the other in what AMD, Microsoft, ARM, and others dub "heterogeneous computing".
