Samsung's new Supremely Suspcious Deal

It will be a surprise to many that Supreme is a skateboard fashion brand; even more surprised was Supreme, when Samsung announced they were forming some sort of partnership with the company.  It seems that a knock-off version of the New York based provider of duds for skaters exists in Italy, thanks to a less than effective trademark and that company not only convinced Samsung they were the real deal but also that it would benefit Samsung to partner with them to host a big fashion show in Beijing.

Samsung is rather embarrassed about the whole thing, so don't taunt them too much.  Pop by Ars Technica for a bit of a lesson on why you should double check anything a skater tells you is true!

"Supreme is not working with Samsung, opening a flagship location in Beijing or participating in a Mercedes-Benz runway show. These claims are blatantly false and propagated by a counterfeit organization."

Hey what is worse is all these "Technology" Press outlets doing "Cross Fire" Testing on the RX 590 and not Knowing/Pointing out that in some DX12 games The Games/Gaming Engine is not making use of any Cross Fire IP but instead the Game is making use of DX12's Explicit Mitli-GPU Adaptor IP that's not Cross Fire based.

How Embarrassing for the Tech Press to have so many "Technology" Sites not take the time to differentiate between DX12's Explicit Multi-GPU adaptor game usage and the old AMD Cross Fire IP that's not made use of in some DX12 Titles. So what the hell is up with these RX 590 dual GPU reviewers calling it Cross Fire when some of the DX12 games are not using Cross Fire but are using DX12's Explicit Multi-GPU adaptor instead, and getting some nice dual GPU scaling under DX12 by the way.

So not the ball is not on the GPU makers side it's on the Games Developer's side but still the "Tech" press just adds to the confusion. BOTH DX12 and Vulkan have API based methods in their respctive Graphics API's so why are the games makers not adapting their games should be the question the Technology Press Should be asking of the games makers. Some DX12 games have great performance using dual RX 570s, RX 580, and RX 590's and the games makers should really be taken to task because DX12/Vulkan have both been available for some years now!

So Why is the "Tech" press more intrested in affiliate marketing and so less interested in championing DX12's and Vulkan's New Graphics API based dual GPU gaming! Where are these Tech Press folks that should be badgering any game maker that has not added Explicit Multi-GPU Adaptor support into their gaming title!

Stop using the terms Cross Fire or SLI when refering to any Games that Make use of DX12's/Vulkan's Explicit Milti-GPU Adaptor IP that's Graphics API based and not GPU driver based.
