    Intel Could License AMD Radeon iGPU Tech for Future Processors

    personally i think this is no different than what nvidia and intel doing right now with their current cross licensing deal. intel have been licensing nvidia IP for years and yet their gpu did not work like nvidia gpu at all. in another forum i see one of intel graphic engineer talking about the deal with nvidia is more about letting intel develop their own gpu without illegally stepping into nvidia existing IP and not about integrating nvidia tech into their gpu.

    though what kyle been suggesting is something quite different. he said it is not a simply licensing it is more like intel want the entire RTG for themselves. means no more AMD radeon. but intel radeon instead.

    Windows Licensing - Hard drive replaced

    I had a laptop for 2 years and was originally on a Windows 8.1 OS. When Windows 10 came out, I installed it for free and it was great. Then my hard drive broke down, so I got it replaced. Now I'm getting reminders that I need a product key for Windows 10
    Licensing. What happens if I leave it? And if I want to fix it, would I need to purchase a new license or could I retrieve the license from the old hard drive?
