    Coronavirus : Folding@home takes the challenge, needs your help.

    Actually I'm a little better now. Called my physician. He told me it's not sure it's the coronavirus, but it may be. I frankly don't see what it could be. I'ev done the flu vaccine and already had a cold that I'm not so used ot. He told me it doesn't look I am a sever case as long as I don't...

    Coronavirus : Folding@home takes the challenge, needs your help.

    Just posting to say I may have caught it. My experience. I'm french. About 2 weeks ago I went shoping and some person had a cough on me. I decided I needed plenty of masks. I had at the moment around 10 masks FPP2 but kept them for better use later in case. So I got the next day on Amazon some...

    Threadripper and Windows 7

    Of course. No problem. The problems will appear if surfing the web with that computer and when browsing with an obsolete web browser that ended support the web site will refuse some tasks. This is not going to happen any time soon. Maybe starting in 4/5 years at worse. And I bet web browsers...

    Coronavirus : Folding@home takes the challenge, needs your help.

    Aren't there also any BOINC project around the new coronavirus ? Could be interesting to have several projects around, since the virus is mutating. BOINC is more portable.

    Coronavirus : Folding@home takes the challenge, needs your help.

    I've heard those people saying not worse than a flu. This is completely misleading and false. It is at best 25 times worse, not counting people that will be left weaker for life. Stop this bullshit. Even Elon Musk who said something stupid because he wants to save his business, reformulated his...

    Coronavirus : Folding@home takes the challenge, needs your help.

    https://foldingathome.org/2020/02/27/foldinghome-takes-up-the-fight-against-covid-19-2019-ncov/ Not sure if someone posted this. It's very crucial people help if they can. In Italy the new coronavirus has already mutated into the L variant and is much more lethal and spreading faster than the...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    True on everything public service, space. I believe everything out of it uses money. In TNG, and even TOS, DS9, Voyager... you're looking at some people in a close military environment living their life and everything around it. I'm quite confident you can't interpret that as a general case...

    Are the AMD drivers really that bad?

    Radeon VII needs to be revised by the user. You need to take off the blower and flatten with care the contact on the GPU with very fine sandpaper to obtain flat mirror surface, then put substantial Artic Silver MX2 all over it, and then reseat the blower with a bit more pressure. You can find...

    Are the AMD drivers really that bad?

    Clearly GPU stuff sold is unlike the CPU not 100% safe proof. It's also overclocked by the manufacturer. If you look at the professional grade cards they are used at lower speed and TDP. So there could be plenty of problems : faulty or unstable GPU at high speed, bad RAM, some failure in one...

    CBS Makes Star Trek: Picard Pilot Free On YouTube 'For a Limited Time'

    Looking at the latest episodes Picard is getting better. Nothing to compare with TNG, but much better than Discovery. Clearly watchable with some pop corn.

    "Intel in jeopardy" from insiders. Much much worse than what they tell.

    News still worse for Intel. Ice Lake is coming out and it's a joke compared to AMD Renoir. Maybe replacing low end CPU on laptops. Intel earnings will melt down with this. Even Apple is now looking into AMD CPU stuff even if they will put Ice lake CPUs in their new Macbooks. Intel showed a GPU...

    PCIe 8X slot Graphics cards

    Doesn't pay the time spent in my case. Not so fund of playing with hardware for the sake of playing with it.

    Are the AMD drivers really that bad?

    I kind of see, after reading all the details on reddit and other forums, were the problems sit. It's mostly because of Windows 10. When you use Windows 7 there are around 0 problems. The problems come from the continuous updates on Windows 7 and some other stuff where the OS may collect all the...

    Theoretical maximum specs for AMD cpu based platform under Windows 7

    I wonder if there is something that prevents the TRX 40 chipset and the 3990X from running on W7 Pro.
