    I saw the Hollywood Medium episode featuring Cory Feldman with Tyler Henry discussing Corey Haim, and I anticipate his related, upcoming project…

    AMD profiting off these slim and future consoles is great, despite redundancy!

    I don’t see World of Warcraft coming to consoles unless Blizzard redoes coding to support more than 3 threads maximum, barely using a third, because current consoles use multi-threading via low overhead APIs to accommodate their 8 cores clocked at 1.6/1.75GHz:

    However, this might be incentive for Microsoft to push/aid Blizzard to code World of Warcraft for the Xbox Scorpio by adding more threading and DirectX 12, since DX12 has low overhead supporting more threads than previous DX APIs and Asynchronous Computing on which AMD’s GCN architecture excels while current and upcoming consoles have GCN architecture:

    Windows 10 users could, then, benefit from WoW using more multi-threaded code and DX12 which might cause millions of players to switch to Windows 10 being the only OS with DX12.

    Bethesda announced that Doom will get Deathmatch and Private Match modes via its Free Update 3 later this month! We can expect Arcade mode via the campaign eventually…

    I’m highly anticipating AMD’s Zen CPUS!
