    Apple M1

    IIRC, Apple has what's called a perpetual license for ARM.

    Apple M1

    My laptop uptime is currently 14 days and that's about to end tomorrow or the next as there's a security update. My workstation is at 48 days and that will end when I apply another security update (it's two OS versions behind due to age and Apple not supporting it beyond High Sierra). Crashing...

    Apple M1

    It's no secret around here that I produce video. We have multiple instructors for multiple projects that take multiple weeks to get done and multiple tasks required to get raw unedited video to a final publishable product. I'd be absolutely useless to anyone if I had to wait for one of these...

    Apple M1

    Your inability to work on multiple projects simultaneously doesn't affect my ability to do so.

    Apple M1

    I'm usually working on four to eight projects at the same time; ten to sixteen applications open; web browser with quite a few windows and tabs (30+) open... One project at a time? That's me on vacation. Dual boot? Hell, no. That's too much time wasted. That's what a second or third computer is...

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    I was going to post the same thing but you stated it better than I could.

    Where Gaming Begins: Ep. 2 | AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards - 11am CDT 10/28/20

    I made my decision to avoid nVidia after the GPP fuckery and am glad to see AMD matching or beating the competition. Good show, AMD! (y)

    Haven't built a rig since the i7-3770k was king, is hardware offloaded audio still a thing? I'm finding very little [H]ard evidence on the subject.

    My wife has an older version of the Razor Kraken. It doesn't sound that bad but it's no match against the built-in computer audio out to my Sennheisers.

    Starlink Public Beta About to Happen?!?!

    Our current cable internet isn't bad (100/10) but we're planning on moving north in the next 1 to 5 years where we anticipate being rather far away from fast (let alone stable) internet. The existence of LEO satallite internet is very intriguing from that standpoint.

    How do you convert wav file to CDA?

    Your 5.1 multi-channel WAV file is not compatible with the two-channel Red Book audio format of CDs. To burn to a CD so that CD players can play them you need to down mix the audio to two channels so that it complies with the standard (as has already been pointed out to you, which you appear to...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    Compared to Bulldozer it was... Now Zen2 is quite amazing as AMD finally mitigated the weaknesses of the original Zen architecture.

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I was seriously considering a silencer for my home defense weapon with the stimulus money but the wife placed a hold on that (she wants any intruder to hear the full sonic impact) so instead I’m considering a compensator. With the leftover I’m considering a Zen 3 plus RDNA2 card. Even the...

    RTX 3xxx performance speculation

    I’m going to hazard a guess that you don’t spend a lot of time supporting users.

    Logitech Z625 Speaker System

    As long as my current speakers continue to work on my dresser top workstation I’m going to continue to use them. I’ve tracked down the weak point to the controller input (the one that goes from the subwoofer to the volume/bass/treble controller) and I sometimes just need to apply differential...

    Apple ARM Based MacBooks and iMacs to come in 2021

    I already have an iPad Pro so I'm not planning on jumping to a desk/laptop with ARM for home use. For work, since we're discussing 2021 budgets right now, I've made my recommendation that we get the last available Intel-based MacBook Pro before phasing out using Macs entirely.
