Is that a surprise to anyone?
As if there was any doubt, Intel integrated graphics continue to suck despite promises of burying discrete graphics with this generation. In speaking of the latest generation (520/530) this review of 4 generations of Intel iGPUs concludes:
"neither chip’s ability to play Battlefield 4 at 1,366 x 768 is going to make gamers salivate. At that point, you’d be better off buying the game for a console — arguably, even an older one, like the Xbox 360. If you have no choice, you’ll find that most games will play on the latest Intel IGP, but it’s clear that Intel’s HD Graphics remain the solution of last resort."

Nvidia Wins Trial Brought by Samsung Over Memory-Chip Patent
Nvidia Corp. won a scaled back patent-infringement trial brought by Samsung Electronics Co. over computer-memory chip technology, potentially tipping the scales in a fight between the two over royalties for computer graphics.
Nvidia fended off a claim that it infringed a patent owned by Samsung, in a federal jury trial in Richmond, Virginia, said Friday. The case had originally started with four Samsung patents and was whittled down to just one after Samsung dropped one patent before trial and the judge ordered a mistrial on two others.
“We are pleased with the outcome of this case, which reflects the jury’s careful attention to the facts and the law that applied,” said Hector Marinez, an Nvidia spokesman.
Ahoj !no offense taken, you have to laugh given the situation." Morituri Te Salutant" - does that roughly translate as "i'm dying here"? Lets hope we can have Nil Nisi Rectum for Nvidia stock after earnings :)
It was AVE Cesar, not hail...hail sounds a little bit #$%$.....and seen the financial situation I'd add MORITURI TE SALUTANT. Anyway, my first reply to you wasn't intended to offend and I hope you didn't take it as an offense....As I said...I want to give you my amused congratuations...if it was intended it would have been great....When in ancient Rome someone went to a Sibilla soothsayer asking for his son future in the battlefield, the answer would have been (in a poetic formula): "He will live not will die in war"....If he survived, the answer was read as "He will live....not will die in war". On the contrary, if he died " He will live not....he will die in war"...So..that' s what your post remembered me.
ha!Very astute, but the double edge was unintentional :) Your right, I would have been more suited to the ancient world but instead I'm stuck here and now, surrounded by nincompoops! Hail Ceasar!
