I haven’t seen the rash of wiki changes that usually proceeds a release. So, other than the source being generally reliable, I have no other evidence the release is happening.

But, one is due and soon.

New Photoshop CC… ugh

Adobe updates their software often. Recently they updated Photoshop (15.5.0). I just got the previous version figured out… now things have moved around again.

The cost of a GTX1080 is in the US$700 to $800 range. The 2016 Titan X is rumored to have a MSRP of $1,200. That is 50% more in cost for 25% more in performance.

Things are ‘Buy It Now’ or the remaining time in the auction shows. I can control my wait time. But, getting a GTX1060 was proving to be a problem.  Continue reading
