    DOOM performance metrics (my 1st post here)

    It's a long shot, but I think you might be running into a power supply problem. You can see from my sig that I have the same supply and I have recently learned that it is less than stellar. I will be looking to replace it in the near future. I have not had any problems yet but I am running an I5...

    SpaceX Falcon 9 Successful Drone Ship Landing

    I think at this point it's pretty clear that you don't see an advantage because you don't know shit about space flight, how rockets work, payload fractions, etc. It's all about Delta-V. That means change in velocity. See, rocket scientists measure fuel in dV. AKA how much velocity change they...

    SpaceX Falcon 9 Successful Drone Ship Landing

    LOL. Firstly, Blue origin is not going anywhere near as far down range or as fast. The Falcon rocket booster actually has to turn around and go back the other way if it wants to land back at the launch site. It's not some fancy elevator like the blue origin. The barge landing means they can use...

    Xbox Chief Apologizes For Sexy Dancers At GDC Party

    Fucking ear buds. Why do people hate music? For the next event, Microsoft should just hire male dancers also. That way women get the fair treatment they deserve. :D

    Kim Dotcom’s Extradition Appeal Set For August

    I'm interested to know what kind of proof they have that this guy did anything illegal anyway. All I have seen is pure hearsay and some snippet of an e-mail that is surely inadmissible as evidence. In this country he will have a jury of citizens deciding his fate also. We all remember "If the...

    Steam constantly reinstalling updates for itself and games

    I have seen this happen before several times. Every time so far, it has indicated a failing hard disk. Is this on an SSD or a spinning disk? I have had reports from friends lately that steam is forgetting that they have games installed. In those cases it was clearly a Steam problem and the HD's...

    MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM Reaches DDR4 4605MHz Clock Speed

    With a clock speed of 800mhz on the processor, there is little point in running the memory at that speed.:rolleyes: I'm supposed to be impressed by that? I think not. Show me a 4+Ghz processor running that memory speed and I'd be a little impressed.

    $340 Audiophile Ethernet Cable Tear Down

    I really hope that is sarcasm. Unless you think your ones and zeros sound better than my ones and zeros.:rolleyes:

    Moore’s Law Is Showing Its Age

    Carbon nanotubes can only shrink the conductor. That wont help shrink gate size. The last gate size shrink they did wasn't even a shrink. It was just a vertical gate. They are approaching atomic limits. At a certain size, silicon just becomes a conductor and not a semi-conductor. Quantum...

    DARPA Robotics Challenge 2015 Finals

    Why are people so terrible with audio? FFS I have two ears for a reason!:mad:

    Grand Theft Auto V

    I don't really know how many times this has to be said, Direct3d does not do triple buffering. Does Not... In some cases there is an option for a flip cue buffer but that is not triple buffering and does not work the same way. OpenGL will do it, and as far as I know, the only triple buffering...

    Grand Theft Auto V

    OK, if I have one critique so far, it is that the in-game anisotropic filtering options might as well not exist. All it did was further blur the textures and nothing looked good unless it was two inches in front of my face. Needless to say, I turned that off and forced it to 16x in Catalyst...

    Grand Theft Auto V

    Oh yea. This game runs very well. It's a welcome change from the previous one. GG Rockstar. I'm already having a blast.

    Are Smartphones Making Our Children Mentally Ill?

    Do you know how I know that this lady is an idiot? She used the term "Pocket Rocket".

    Samsung Promises Another Fix for 840 EVO Slow Down Issue

    Hmm, I was thinking about getting one of these but went with the Intel 480GB offering instead. Smells like vindication.
