My Favorite MOBA So Far Is A Mobile Game

My Favorite MOBA So Far Is A Mobile Game

I want to enjoy a MOBA. I’ve tried every popular multiplayer battle arena game — DOTA 2, League of Legends, Heroes Of The Storm, Infinite Crisis. Each has its charms, but I’ve never quite felt at home in any of them. My enthusiasm for Super Evil Megacorp’s Vainglory suggests I may have been looking on the wrong platform.

AMD Higher Up with diverse fabrication experience leaves for Global Foundries as SVP

So word travels from Fudzilla.com that AMD’s SVP Operations ATI, has jumped ship to Global Foundries. This is a very interesting turn of events and could have interesting implications on the entire GloFo-AMD relationship. The high profile veteran in question was John Docherty, who is now the SVP Global Operations at Global Foundries. AMD did not comment on the story.

AMD SVP Operations ATi, John Docherty, Jumps Ship to Global Foundries as SVP Global Operations

As Fudzailla notes, John Docherty has experience not only in GPU but in CPU manufacturing as well and it is possible that this was a planned-and-approved transfer considering GlobalFoundries ties with AMD. Most executives at AMD only deal with one side of the business, be it compute, graphics or APUs. Very rarely do you get a higher up who has an all rounded experience. John has previously worked on APU production and before AMD worked for European Die Manufacturing, Motorola Semiconductor Freescale among other similar companies. Being really experienced in the manufacturing process makes him an ideal hire for the position of Global Operations SVP at GloFo.

And this, folks, as Fudzilla correctly points out is a “match made in heaven”. As most of you know GloFo was spun off by AMD as a separate company some years ago, but red remains its primary customer both by current demand and legally binding contracts. With Samsung as an ally (even more so now that Nvidia has managed to piss it off) and the new architecture Zen poised to enter the market sometime in 2016, we could finally see a comeback on the compute side with 14nm FinFETs directly. Although I must say that given historical data, the chances of that are not very high. Nvidia’s 16nm FinFET Pascal GPU will be out sometime in the same time frame as Zen appears, infact, there is serious evidence that prototype units of Pascal have already been fabricated.

To put it simply, all the evidence so far suggests that the 20nm Node is broken. The industry inertia is too high for the Industry to slow down and let the node mature enough for high performance ASIC purposes. While TSMC is catering only to Apple on the 20nm node, AMD needs to pick up the slack somehow since it is having a hard time competing with Nvidia on the basis of efficient architecture alone. The answer could lie in skipping 20nm completely and moving forward to FinFET. We shall know the answer in a few months at any rate.

Earlier it was reported that Microsoft will be holding an event in January to showcase the new features in Windows 10. And a relative rumor also says that it will also be showcasing a new dashboard for the Xbox One in January aswell. Microsoft is expected to release an official statement regarding this event sometime in the upcoming month. The photograph above was leaked on 30th September. While these are still only rumors, this will not only let universal apps to be run on the Xbox but from the sounds of it, this is a very comprehensive update.

A link of Xbox One OS to the Microsoft Windows can open many new doors for the gaming world. For one, we “can” finally see a mouse attached to and Xbox for gameplay improvement. But that’s prediction on a very imaginative level. But what is possible is the ability in Xbox to feature support for the Windows PC games and that will make the console a much lucrative offer. Just like the Alienware Alpha which used a Windows OS to showcase its capability of running 3200+ plus game, this will be possible on the Xbox aswell. Lets see what Microsoft has in the bag after this November update and hope its something to blow the Xbox fans off their seats.

Development costs for This War of Mine covered in two days

This War of Mine presents a different vision of war than many gamers may be used to, trading QTEs and pew-pew ‘splosions for somber reflection and grim analysis of war’s collateral damage. And yet, despite its dreary, depressing atmosphere, developer 11 Bit Studios is likely smiling wide at the moment, as the game has sold enough copies within just 48 hours to cover development costs.

11 Bit revealed the good news in an infographic sent to Joystiq, along with a lot of other interesting information. For example, 11 Bit also revealed that while only 11 percent of players have beaten the game, 96 percent of the more than 2,700 user reviews recommend it. The gender gap is also minimal, as 56 percent of players were identified as male, while the remaining 46 percent were identified as female.

To see the infographic in its entirety, read on after the break.
