oh oh... how about fans blowing too hard?
At first it might seem as a bad idea, but maybe it will finally force hardware developers to actually focus on one generation instead of just pushing out new cards all the ****ing time only caring about huge profits?
Maybe finally we can get flawless drivers and cards that are top notch for more than a few months.
And greenpeace is happy.
All we know they'll follow MS' approach as they did with the "N" versions of Windows .. just supply Europe with a different BIOS, though warranty may be an issue if people start fooling around.
What do you think discrete means?
THis is getting ridiculous now, damn beaurocracy.. Sooner the UK has a referendum to get out of the EU the better.
It is such a blessing to be in the European Union - e place where dreams come true, where crime and poverty are nonexistent, where everyone's happy!
So I guess devs and hardware manufacturors will focus on non-EU countries now...
This is absolutely correct, nowhere in the linked report is any of this mentioned.
But no one else actually reads these things. They just read headlines.
Yeah thats what i missed
Its funny how that post went completely unnoticed by every subsequent poster until your quote. Seems like most gurus still can't read properly!
There is a mention of 320GB/s, in this working document, and only so far to classify PC with such GPU, and to actually exempt it from regulations (kWh/year) .
isnt discrete what we have?
The most famous example is when they thought the start menu for Windows 8 had been completely removed.
So many people "WELL MICROSOFT HOW AM I GONNA LAUNCH ANYTHING?"
DW guys we'll import our 8990s and 790s and overclock them in sli/xfire still and we'll use 1200watt psus because we can and because they tell us we can't. Stupid law gets ignored I was straining with rage when reading this story and it became the first ever news story that made me fart accidentally.
So we should take the bandwidth upper limit statement to be from an anonymous source.
Yeah that is pretty much all we can take from the article. It is clear that the linked report is not the exclusive information they are talking about since it wouldn't be exclusive if it was. "Exclusive information" is pretty much the same as "anonymous source." So, I mean, that is standard fare for online news now anyways.
Well, most of the time anonymous sources are full of...
since im in the ****yest country in the europ were never gonna enter eu so fu.k the law.
The sooner we get a vote on our place in the EU the better for the UK.
I know how I am voting, 100% out!
For this I am now going to add another HD 5850 along with my current two and burn extra power, SCREW YOU EU!
Don't worry, I'll happily ship any graphics cards over to the EU countries for a nominal fee!
If this was a TDP/Wattage limitation then I could at least understand the logic behind it; as it is, this makes very little sense at all. :/
lol where is the pic...
aah.. here it is.. seriously wtf is going on, just makes me think about what kind of trolls are behind that bs, and how innocent they are at computer parts knowledge jezzus
Will hit the likes of OcUK massively
