Get a fucking life you moaning bitch!

The article does contain some interesting details such as being able to use 8-bit instead of 32-bit. It also confirms that if you want to do lots of machine learning nVidia is a good place to start, which is backed up by sales figures after a couple of failed bets. This is good for the industry as a whole, as it is a boost to custom chips and will put more pressure on Intel both to cut prices and be more accommodating in its own chips.

And I also wouldn't put it past Google to release the specs at some point. They've done so with similar things in the past.
