    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    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/

    OCZ SSDs - Why are they so bad?

    V3 128Gb going strong was only removed from daily (and now is a games drive) a few years back... no problems at all.

    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    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...

    new light-field 13" by 30" display to create immersive 122" panoramic virtual screen without goggles

    I wonder how much wavefront distortion it will create. Would love to try this approach though.. could make very cost effective high spec displays.

    Ryzen 3900x fails prime 95 with stock settings

    Built a 2600x G.Skill rig with over two different types of boards (faulty PSU killed them) and I just ran 3600 at 3200 XMP settings and never had a problem.

    AMD Announces Renoir for Desktop: Ryzen 4000G, PRO 4000G, and Athlon PRO 3000G

    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...

    How do I get rid of Microsoft Edge and Skype on Windows 10 Pro ? They mysteriously installed themselfs

    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...

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    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...

    Blackmagic casually announces 12K URSA Mini Pro Camera

    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..

    What's the latest on AMD's driver issues for the RX 5600 XT and similar models?

    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...

    AMD Announces Renoir for Desktop: Ryzen 4000G, PRO 4000G, and Athlon PRO 3000G

    Eh? These are Zen2 (4k series).. they are the fastest laptop CPUs out and now being released for desktop. Cache doesn't hurt them much either.

    What's the latest on AMD's driver issues for the RX 5600 XT and similar models?

    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.

    What's the latest on AMD's driver issues for the RX 5600 XT and similar models?

    Have you RMA'd the card yet? If not, why?

    AMD RDNA 2 gets ray tracing

    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.

    AMD RDNA 2 gets ray tracing

    DLSS doesn't work equally in all games in first revision, I don't see it changing for 2nd. Third maybe with a more AMD type solution. Open world and non-linear games are not a free ride for this tech.

    I saw a 28K red image nearly a decade ago lol. I think they were arraying sensors for that though.

    So prescription video games are now a thing..... I could see that

    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.

    No Man's Sky - a procedurally generated sand box space exploration game

    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.

    What low profile video card will fit Dell Optiplex SFF 3010 (Dells specifies AMD Radeon R5 240 1gb but I want something better.)

    just run an external 12v brick and cut a full size card in with a dremel, it's not hard, onl yissue is draw on the port if it goes over spec and doesn't use external molex

    Connect Aluminum to Copper Wire for PicoPSU?

    Soldering aluminium is possible but yes you need different solder and what gigabite said basically. But most of those wires shoul dbe solderable as they are soldered to the board originally.... cheers

    AMD Launches Ryzen Threadripper Pro - OEM only

    If there is an ASUS TUF board or similar for that it might be the way to go. Could you get a prebuilt from a smaller build company that is decent? That'd be the easiest way around it..

    Connect Aluminum to Copper Wire for PicoPSU?

    If in doubt solder it out. And if in doubt of soldering, solder it out more often.

    Should I return it ?

    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.

    Mining is only going anywhere for the same reason MLM/guru scams are doing record numbers - dumb people stuck at home looking for lazy money and the whales are pumping $ in to make it look good.

    AMD RDNA 2 gets ray tracing

    But it has almost the same size die and similar features otherwise.. nearly the same core it's not like ngreedia did a complete revamp just partial.

    games that were on your school computers

    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.

    AMD RDNA 2 gets ray tracing

    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...

    AMD RDNA 2 gets ray tracing

    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...

    Why Microsoft switched from Intel to Power PC

    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
