Call of Duty: Warzone has quietly dropped Bounties, and players are not happy about it

Call of Duty: Warzone puts a real priority on collecting in-game cash. If you've got it, you can buy all sorts of items that will give you a leg up on the competition, and if you don't, well, good luck.

You'll likely have heard of the term "process node leadership" being bandied about from the red camp lately. It's a term AMD hasn't been able to use until recently with the advent of its Ryzen 3000 processors manufactured on the 7nm process node from TSMC. But behind the scenes there's an even greater debate raging on in chip making: what decides a process node's name, and what does it stand for?
