What exactly is an "EU"? You are aware that the first time you use an abbreviation that isn't well known in a piece of writing, you should explain what it is, because someone will be encountering it for the first time? But you guys didn't even do that in the earlier piece you linked to. Once again, y'all need an editor.

(Don't tell me "just Google it" as the onus is on the writer to provide clarity.)
While I partially agree with you, Intel has been using EU term since 2006. So it's very well known thing IMO.
Are you serious or is that a lame attempt at sarcasm? If you're serious, what rock have you been living under, eh?

" EU " stands for European Union, a VERY common expression...

Actually, while I was being snarky, I was also being serious. Wasn't trying to troll at all. EU is commonly used to abbreviate "European Union". However, in the case of Intel's line of GPU's, EU is used as an abbreviation for "Execution Units", something EASILY searched for and discovered. But that user was being obstinate.
"the Arc Alchemist flagship has 512 EUs"

That very clearly DOES NOT mean "European Union" in this context.

EDIT: FFS read the article next time. If you did a CTRL-F on "EU" you would see Europe never came into it.
No need for the hostile attitude. Your ego runeth over.. You failed to quote anyone and thus failed to establish a clear context. That's on you. I went with the most common usage of the term "EU". Next time, state requests for information in a way which clearly defines what information you request.
