    Indeed. And seeing as we invented both the Milky Way and Mars Bar (Masterfoods) I fail to see how this blatant ad is correct in any part of the world.

    It's bad enough that Marathons got renamed Snickers, but this goes too far.

    Some of them are.... or at least they used to be.

    IIRC, 5 years back most of the quadro cards had at their core the same chips as used in geforce cards, with the only real differences being:

    1. The drivers (quadro optimised for quality over framerate, geforce optimised the other way round)

    2. The price (quadro much more expensive).

    So if you wanted to do gaming on them (and I did) you could just install the appropriate geforce drivers (telling all the warning boxes to fuck off) and you'd end up with a geforce card.

    Not sure if installing the quadro drivers on a geforce branded card would work though... never had reason to try that.

  • Fullmetal (unregistered) in reply to eViLegion

    You can game on quadros even better now. I get pretty goood framerate on a Quadro K2000M. the card is essentially a GT650M that's been tweaked. They still have the same chips at the core(Kepler/Fermi). The drivers are even unified now(one package, all the cards).

    as for the old method of drivers, GeForce drivers could run a quadro. people could never get it the other way

    Don't understand the morality of the chocolate companies these days. back in the old days we had mars bars, bounties, milky-ways, milky-bars, smarties, opal fruits, etc etc. Simple confectioneries with a simple distinct fillings that worked.

    Now the motherfuckers just bring out variations on existing lines, inventing sick flavors like sharp and sour and putting mint where mint shouldn't go and stuffing perfectly good confectionery with cheap biscuit and shit.

    "Confused Skittles" was the last fucking straw. Next they'll bring out a mint flavored bounty bar. I am telling you this is where the world is heading. I thought once Obama was elected the world would change, but NOT LIKE THIS.

    "Confused Skittles" is mild next to Bertie Bott's "Every Flavour" jelly beans. I'm not sure which is more disturbing: that there's an "earthworm" jelly bean, or that someone had to do the research to get the flavor right...

    Oh, that debt? Not to worry. We're not going to pay it. It would be impossible.

    Yes, you'll still have to pay your college loan and so on. Debt is just for common people. But governments can change the rules however they want, you see.

    A little hand waiving, a few puffs of smoke... the debt will be gone! You won't even be able to understand where it went.

    Deep fried mars bars seem more sensible now.

    As for video cards, I used to work on Surface (big-ass-table) the first version used GPU processing, but when they tried to 'upgrade' the GPU performance got worse.

    Apparently (I'm not the guy who tested it) newer cards are either 'optimized' for video output path, or 'crippled' so that if you want to do serious number crunching with them you need the special compute cards.

    p.s. black pepper flavored jelly beans are also amazing. When I read the first Harry Potter book and they mentioned those as one of the supposedly-gross every-flavor flavors, I was like, I must try that. Then they defictionalized them, I got to try them, and sure enough, they are super tasty.
