    Tried your link Cloasters , they seem to be down at the moment.

    I head last night on the news that Nvidia is pulling out of the driver-less car experimentation and research it was doing. What little I heard was part of the Driver-less car news of a fatality. Seems the driver-less car marketers are pulling back...I think the long term liabilities have backed them up a step or two.

    I'll try your link later George

    I went back and got though to your link.

    So how much would it set me back to acquire an Nvidia super-dupper-computer?

    Bitcoin is a scam, it's the dream of money for no effort. IMHO. I apologize to you booman, I shouldn't have dangled that bauble ie, a $9000 Vidcard anywhere near any of our Members. It's performance is so outrageous that it will remain a thing of dreams for all of us, afaik. My bad!

    This entire "human driverless" cars and trucks concept is a pile of horse droppings, imho. Somehow I don't think that Uber's butt wipes in charge give much care about their dead woman in Arizona. Maybe I'm wrong, I hope I am. But the "people" at the helm of Uber are evil, plain and simple.

    It's just another method of the powers that be to punish us with AI as a threat to all of us regular folk. Thank you, Masters of the Universe! IMHO, of course.

    How much for this new GPU driven super-computer from Nvidia? Pretty safe to say that we can't afford one. It is one impressive piece of gear, at $9000 for each of those super duper Vidcards that drive the thing...

    B-b-but... How about some humble Linux drivers? Always something.
