I would be crashing into a lot more people if the population were significantly denser. My real life driving skills are immaculate; my GTA driving skills... not so much.

I just read an excellent review at PC Perspective of the NVMe version of the Samsung SM951 M.2 SSD. As expected, it is appreciably better than the Intel 750 in very small file transfers, making it a...

I'm inclined to think that Philip's reveal indicates that Martha is a goner, and that the situation is to parallel when Elizabeth was most candid about herself right before she killed the old lady.

Yeah, the deplorable Trevor character in particular is extremely over-the-top, even by this series' standards. That said, the game is lots of fun.

I believe he said 92%. I remember a couple of years ago when it was said that the figure is around 90%.

It's no surprise, and it will only get more significant when content and people's...

I was never that big of a Weekend Update critic as I feel the stories themselves are often almost enough of a joke. I did not think Seth Meyers was that much more interesting of a host than Che and...

I have a good memory and can confidently say that I've seen far worse seasons of SNL. I'm thinking of a lot of the duller than dull '80s dreck in particular.

Not much when compared to a regular SATA SSD. The real benefits at this time would come from tasks like 4K video editing.

I suspect that the newest crop of consumer SSD controllers cannot be reasonably tuned to take advantage of anything beyond a PCIe x4 link at 3.0 speeds.

I'm sure some here will find fault, but I thought last night's show was very funny. The CNN and "Neurotology" (Scientology) segments were particularly well done.

That's just his kind of humor; look at MacGruber. Lowbrow jokes and despicable clowns are his forte, which is not necessarily a bad thing when implemented in an interesting way. I don't need likeable...

Yeah, that is one of the most bizarrely written shows. The human interaction is odder than its vampire premise. It will be interesting to see how season 2 turns out.

Excellent news.

What I like most about The Americans is that it's smartly grounded. FX's The Bridge could have been a masterpiece if it wasn't for a number of head-scratching decisions in its...

Nobody would be able to adequately replace Jon Stewart in delivery, so a quick "what the hell" pick seems apt. I will say that Trevor Noah is of my age, and I find very few people my age or younger...

I'm just saying that something like a 980 or whatever AMD has in store is a perfectly good holdover. The memory bandwidth and process benefits of Pascal alone should do wonders for 4K gaming.

Next year's Pascal GPU in the $500 range could very well eviscerate the Titan X in 4K performance.
