    Im always lagging behind when some interesting news comes out so i thought why not create a thread that we can all Share and post the latest and interesting technology news and discuss them.

    Valve® and AMD Team Up to Provide Gamers with Easy ATI Catalyst™ Driver Updates on Steam


    Helps ensure gamers always have the most up-to-date drivers with the AMD auto-notification feature directly on the Steam platform....Seems kind of a good idea to me,But lots of people choose drivers suited to their needs, forcing updates would not go down well imo,Especially if newly released drivers are problematic or something like they can be sometimes.

    it isn't as much mind control as it is mind enhancement. but it does seem like it could be a bit dangerous. convincing the body it is in a state it isn't...

    Yes, but do you really think they will stop at "mind enhancement"? No, they will start putting thoughts in your head so that you do what those thoughts tell you to do...

    adobe released a 64 bit version of flash player. those testing out ie 9 or using ie 8 (or lower) be sure to install it and watch youtube vids on your 64 bit internet browser!

    the clock speeds are quite impressive for the mid range cards but I am excited to see if amd will finally go over 1gb/256bit for their future cards.

    I am also really excited to see how the 28nm process effects the performance and heat of the new nvidia gpus

    I would like to see if they get decent yield with dropping the size again on a new architecture, and they don't embarrass themselves again like they did with fermi
