    Default This is another reason why I don't trust IGN.

    http://gear.ign.com/articles/797/797343p1.html

    That article is filled with so many technical wrongness that I want to kick Gerry Block in the face.

    Meh, that doesn't mean that there are alternatives.
    GPU-based physics processing or a CPU processing dedicated thread can easily do it. A single SPE out of the seven the Cell has is enough to do that and the Xenon's capable of processing six simultaneous threads with its three symmetric cores.

    Being a PC elitist, I like to bash consoles a lot, but I would not write an article full of bullshit for thousands of people to read and get a misconception of the current state of things.
    HDR, physics, etc. The consoles can do it, albeit at a different degree of quality (or fidelity, whichever interpretation you want to adopt) but saying that such things is not the greatest thing for the industry and fucks up the perception that both the customers and companies (publishers and manufacturers) both agreed on.

    I was skeptical when i read about 802.11n ... wasn't that named one of the biggest technological flops/failures of the last decade?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
