Gamers on a tablet?
I’ll be migrating away from computers altogether as this happens. They want us to adhere to their own proprietary standards, they want us to put everything “in the cloud,” and they want us on mobile devices that can be tracked and kept to “moderate” electrical consumption. Well, not me.
I’ll likely build up one more heavy-hitting gaming rig with liquid cooling and ride on it until the next-next-gen of video games comes out that won’t run on the old stuff. My current gaming rig is still humming along and plays anything I throw at it.
It’s only a matter of time.
This, I fear, is just the beginning. The market wants to force us to mobile devices instead of giving us more power in a smaller (and cooler) desktop package. If the ASUSes and the Gigabytes of the world don’t rise up and perhaps work with AMD to continue the socketed processor lines, enthusiasts, as well as websites such as NewEgg and FrozenPC, will go extinct.
If this is true, and it just sounds like you won’t be able to build your own machine by buying a motherboard, it just means the gamer and enthusiast market goes to AMD.
This really makes little sense to me as Intel has no vested interest in selling the rest of a tower’s innards. They don’t make power supplies, graphics cards, sound cards, HD’s etc. I’m trying to make sense of this because as written it doesn’t make good business.
I played Evercrack on a laptop for years. Wasn’t so bad.
Who cares! I will never knowingly buy another Intel product. Their corporate values do not jibe with mine so they will not receive any support from me. After all isn’t that how the demoncrats play the game?
