3 Big data security analytics techniques

AMD has denied the London finalist in its Quakedelica competition was secretly using a Pentium II/450 rather than the AMD-based box specified. A report in UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph said that a US Quake champion with the unlikely nickname of Thresh had beaten UK contender James Page, who goes by the equally unlikely name of Billox. But, according to AMD, the report was also a load of Billox. Said an AMD representative: "We're trying to set the record straight. They were all AMD machines supplied by Elonex. The report in The Telegraph is erroneous." Asked whether it was possible for Thresh to have smuggled in a PII/450, the representative said: "No one was playing on an Intel-based machine." In the end, all was well, AMD UK reported -- the definitely K6-2 equipped Page was declared the winner. ® Click for more stories
