    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Oh they're only up to like 9:30am 9/17 based on the community spreadsheet. I hit the notify button on 10/5 as well, I'm not counting on getting it before cyberpunk even with the delay. Hell at this rate I doubt I'll get it this year. nvidia isn't going to own up to the crappy production...

    Lack of 16:10 options is DEPRESSING

    How is having the flexibility to display the content in a manner you prefer a "crutch"? This is coming off like grumpy old boomer nonsense where people have failed to catch on that regardless of what they think the industry for the most part moved past them 10+ years ago. Hell, I find the idea...

    Lack of 16:10 options is DEPRESSING

    Do you only have one display?

    Super Mario 3 Prototype Sells for $31,200

    I'm sure you've see the famicom cartridges. If I were to take a blind guess, it's because the NES cartridges had more room for the dev board someone wanted to use and it's not like they wouldn't have had easy access to them to gut one to use as a shell.

    EA, Motive and Lucasfilm Announce Star Wars: Squadrons

    Yeah, EA didn't kill Wing Commander at all. Chris Roberts had left in '96, which was the last year of a wing commander game and EA didn't mandate Origin Systems be an online only game company till '99 or 2000 and even then when it had cancelled Origin's projects, it was Privateer 3 that got...

    Intel Acquires Killer NIC

    Ugh, had a killer NIC on a board ages ago and hated it for similar reasons to what exlink mentioned above.

    Intel launches its 10th gen Comet Lake CPUs - breaks world record in soldier numbers (possibly)

    Most actually. Dell, Lenovo, HP, and that's your big common ones. Asus, Microsoft, Acer all do as well. Sure it's more laptops than desktops, but that's just fairly common in general these days.

    Zooms end to end encryption, not really end to end.

    Skype and Skype for Business have effectively been treated as two almost entirely separate things for years, with the consumer version getting the shaft. However over the past couple of years, MS has basically stopped doing anything new on the S4B side of things, as they're pushing all of that...

    Intel’s Culture Needed Fixing. Its C.E.O. Is Shaking Things Up.

    Wait, so it went from a white bias, to now including people from all over Asia? And that's still the same bias? What the fuck even?

    Intel’s Culture Needed Fixing. Its C.E.O. Is Shaking Things Up.

    So then why does Intel hire so many men from Asia?

    REFURBISHED HGST Ultrastar He8 8TB SATA Internal HDD $139 Free Shipping DEAD

    Damn. Was excited till I saw newegg, then as expected from a random seller. But I suppose that's been an issue for years trying to find deals on HGST drives.

    DOOM Eternal: The Final Preview

    No. Because preordering doesn't accomplish anything except throwing away money at something sight unseen. Wait until the game has been out at least a couple of days to make sure you're not buying a dumpster fire.

    Capture Carbon in Concrete Made With CO2

    Well... According to various sources we cut down around 15-25 million trees a year just as christmas trees in the US. https://www.wsj.com/articles/how-many-christmas-trees-do-we-chop-down-each-year-11575032401 https://realchristmastrees.org/dnn/Education/Quick-Tree-Facts There's likely other...

    Atari is building a series of Gaming Hotels across America.

    Sure, there's some occasional nostalgia for $20-$30 that sells. But much like how questionable it is that nostalgia is going to sell a $350+ console, and that's at least a product that people could consider within the same category that people have some mild nostalgia for... do you really think...
