You're right, I fucked up the date on the article. Juan is sort of off the hook but not really..
Charlie has a good write up on it. https://semiaccurate.com/2020/07/23/an-examination-of-intels-7nm-timeline-delay-claims/
Funny that happens when certain people come out of the woodwork in certain types of threads, after certain types of announcements.
End of the day, INTC share price must be defended... that is what you are seeing here mostly.
Guess what the two drops were this year? Both the same thing - 7nm...
In benchmarks they are as fast in laptop flavour as the desktop counterparts and sometimes slightly quicker in certain edge cases due to an improved IMC.. all while using less power. The cache didn't make a huge difference. Case in point is the 3300X, the quad which performs as good as some of...
As much as I hate this behaviour, it's been practically the same for most earlier windows versions, you could never quite completely get rid of IE as it was needed for some internal dialogues and functionality. I did however disable it down as much as possible it would then sometimes cause weird...
Yeah after one of the earlier updates the same happened to me. I put in around 100 hours in the first 2-3 versions and lots of progress was wiped out (max upgrades multi/ship/etc) and replaced with technology modules or something. Was frustrating and put me off a bit but these days don't mind...
Used to do silly stuff with a setup just under half that, best shots sometimes are a risk/reward curve.
Some of the pros have what functions a bit as a roll cage when it comes to a fall. Things still can easily break in optics/mounts though..
I understood what you wrote - the card very likely has an issue but you won't RMA it, yet bitch about drivers instead? Are you just a hardware karen? Will you then sell your karen card to another sucker?
Just go to nvidia, hopefully you have another hardware issue and will blame their drivers...
Had crashes like that from PSUs and undervolting too much, both are hardware related.. you may have a chip that barely scraped qualification or some sort of critical voltage not quite at spec. RMA it so you can at least eliminate that.
Fair approach and fits what they do in past. I'd just prefer more universal solution (play lots of different games these days), even if it might be a little inferior in supported titles.
This time around I'm open to running nvidia, then selling when AMD had something ready. Depends on timing.
I used to subscribe to EvE.. what is new?
Ok that's a shitty troll attempt, I guess the major difference is difficulty adjustment or that it's been tailored for ADHD kids? Weird market but if it works then that is good.
Looks like a great gameplay loop addition. Finally abandoned/alien infected ships, SC still can't even do something like this lol.
All I hope is an exploration/proc gen update is in the pipeline to diversify worlds and give more detail.
This. Don't fret, yes some boxes have seals but not all. Sealed anti-static bags are not common and by sealed; meaning a piece of sign written tape or sticker, to close it for smaller components and often with ESD warnings.
Test it first.
Forgot this one too, Kraken: A Deep Sea Quest (1989), spent many hours during holidays at my mums work playing that (my imagination made it much more exciting lol) and some Apple 2 archaeology game where you could play in the 1500s and as an current day archaeologist, was good fun. Few others too.
Seen lots of weird shit about that but from what I can tell in more recent benches, only one does the paytracing properly and the other is a bit slower. I always assumed they were the same but allegedly they are not. It's really not that interesting because almost no one is going to use Volta to...
It was pretty cringe but volta didn't really end up doing much for mainstream dGPUs either, so they must have known something we didn't and got it partially right.
DLSS also was pretty shit first time, barely worked to look better and only in tunnel shooters. Does it work on open world yet...
Lmao that was exactly one of the ways we test and induce failures too. To the point where I had to cut reliefs out of top covers of laptops with a dremel and a jig on 300+ laptops. Still have that as a memento xD
