Ashes Of The Singularity Running On AMD And Nvidia Hardware Simultaneously

Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together…mass hysteria! Check out this demonstration of AMD and Nvidia cards working in tandem for RTS game Ashes of the Singularity.

Note that in this case, the hardware obviously isn’t configured for any kind of SLI passthrough — AMD doesn’t use physical bridges the way Nvidia still does, and this kind of hardware wouldn’t be able to take advantage of it, since the two company’s use very different pinouts. Nevertheless, the rig works and works well.


Snapdragon 820 Might Have Overheating Problems

Qualcomm has officially denied this, but I think they said the same thing about the 810.

It is identical to the issues the Korean company had with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processors last year. In that case Samsung decided not to use the SD810 in any of its high-end Android phones for 2015. Apparently walking away is not an option with the Galaxy S7, which we’re expecting to see hit the market towards the beginning of next year.


Reports Of Surface Book And Surface Pro 4 Problems Proliferate

I’d like to think that these are just isolated incidents, as I’d hate to see Microsoft make a serious fumble after the momentum they’ve managed to achieve for their new Surface lineup.

There are reports of Surface Book freezes all over the Web. Tweetium Windows author, former developer at Microsoft and all-around guru Brandon Paddock @BrandonLive had a series of freezes and hangs with the laptop, at least some of which were apparently caused by the Intel graphics card.
