NVIDIA Fan Gets 9 Years for Murdering AMD Fan with Kitchen Knife

Whoops, I’ve ended up in the degenerate corner of tech news again. NVIDIA and AMD fans can be a heated bunch, but I didn’t know they were literally stabbing each other over hardware now. ( Are you guys in the video card forum okay over there? ) Unfortunately, the articles do not seem to mention the important stuff, like which graphics cards they were arguing over.

آ…a Russian programmer "hacked" his friend with a knife after a disagreement about NVIDIA vs. AMD. The man murdered his friend with a kitchen knife by striking him twice on the head and then stabbed his friend another eleven times after he was already dead. He then burned the body in the attempt to cover the crime. It appears that the argument was the result of drinking alcohol and there may have been something in the alcohol to result in such a violent reaction over graphics card makers. The tragic event happened over a year ago, but the conviction was only recently handed down by the court to 31-year-old Aleksander Trofimov, responsible for murdering 37-year old Evgeny Lylin in Saransk, Russia. He was sentenced to nine and a half years in prison for the crime he eventually admitted to committing.
