    NVIDIA on the Cause of RTX 2080 Series Card Failures

    Unless Nvidia is pushing the limits on this memory, isn't this ultimately Micron's fault? .

    Learning Solidworks?

    Having used quit a few different CAD programs over the years, AutoCAD, CADD4, ProE, SolidWorks, and CATIA, I found SolidWorks to be the easiest one to learn and use. If you already have CAD experience, you can learn it on your own easily. If you have no CAD, or even drafting experience, then...

    Kangaroo Plus (Windows 7 install possible?)

    I have a retail version of Windows 7 Ultimate, so would it at least do a very basic install, enough in order to upgrade to Windows 10?

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    DEC was way ahead of everyone else, and were taken over and torn apart, solely for their technology, w/everyone bleeding them of it, and their staff. One could only imagine where they would of been today, if they were to have continued on. 128 bit perhaps? They were already running 64 bit when...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Actually, in my opinion, it is the memory which is way behind, technology wise. The SSD's and GPU's are moving right along. With the memory chips, they don't presently run at the same speeds as the CPUs do. Intel's latest supported CPU memory speeds are presently running from 1600 to 1866 MHz...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Certainly there is no question about it when it comes to their GPU's. Their R9 290X is suppose to faster than Nvidia's GeForce GTX Titan. It'll be interesting what they price it at. Rumors have them selling for around $600, while the Titan's run presently at around $1000. I look forward to...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    At the time, Intel's were quite expensive. It was the AMD x64 Dual Cores, that were a threat to Intel, w/them not having anything to compete against them, both in price and technology. Remember too, they ended up licensing AMD's x64. The only x64 bit chip that they had at the time was their very...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Be it a fluke, or they were simply ahead, technology wise, either way, it helped us, the consumer, at the time, and it would be nice if they kept that pressure on Intel. This would help us all, both in price and new technology, whether you like AMD or Intel. Like I said earlier, look at AMD's...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    First of all, that's overclocked. Second, you've got to remember, the 2500K, which is a Socket 1155 CPU, only has two memory channels, vs. the four of the Socket 2011. That should impede it's performance against the 8320, which I would imagine, is a four channel. How would an AMD 3.5 GHz 8320...

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again?

    Will AMD ever get their act together once again, when it comes to their CPU's? For a short period of time, AMD CPU's were ahead of Intel, when it came to affordable overall performance, w/multi-core CPU's, supporting 64 bit software, and memory performance w/an on chip memory controller...

    How are you guys liking Windows 8 so far?

    I went and loaded Windows 8 Pro today on my Alienware X51. On occasion it tends to come up w/some kind of error for some reason, causing it to have to restart. My hardware is only a few months old, and so is up to date. After using the OS for a while, I had to see if I could find a program...

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview to be released 02/29/2012

    Personally, I don't like it. :( Talk has it, that there will be several different versions of the OS when released, more than what's available w/Windows 7, w/each having some features that another doesn't. Myself, I would like a clean and efficient one, w/no absolutely useless bells and...

    Windows 8 Consumer Preview to be released 02/29/2012

    As I read here, everyone claims to be a know it all. That's fine, and I'm sure many of you do know something more than someone else. :rolleyes: Now try to look at Windows 8 from the perspective of a totally ignorant, new user. Now how do you like Windows 8 from that perspective? .

    To add to this, why couldn't they have designed a car would could be expanded w/more battery modules, and thus longer range, later, as prices come down? .

    GM Suspends Chevy Volt Production after Poor Sales

    Tesla is a small company, and aren't going to make and sell very many vehicles. On the other hand, GM for example, is a big company, and could very well sell more, if the range and price were there. With GM, the more they sell, the cheaper the product becomes. Yes at first there would be a loss...

    I commute some 26 miles each way to work, for a total of 52 miles, as well as own a condo, where there's no way to hook up plugs to my two parking spots that are assigned to me. I just bought a new car, and thought about the Volt, and think they, design wise, look great, but they only have a...

    Electric vehicles are fine and dandy in cities and urban communities, where travel is very short, to and from work and local shopping, but not all people live in those communities. Then where do these communities get the electricity to power these vehicles? Rural America, when it comes to the...

    Where they fudge the data in order to get what they want it to read? ;) We already know that has happened. That's why there is a credibility problem w/them. Of course now, we have politics involved, which makes things even worse, and even more questionable. .

    It's funny, people want electric cars, but don't want fossile fuel driven power plants (oil, coal), nuclear, nor even dams, which is the cleanest, to produce it. So what do we go with, wind turbines, solar farms, tital turbines, dams? Wind Turbines? They are known to kill birds, plus are an...

    Electric Vehicle, Battery Makers Get Charge Out of Stimulus

    A question that I keep asking all these electric vehicle fans is, where do we get all the electricity to charge them? We are really not doing anything to fix the electrical grid. We aren't doing anything, other than adding a few wind generators, to the grid. As the system stands, as many see...

    what to expect @ WWDC

    OS 4.0 is supposed to be released for the iPad in the Fall. The iPhones (3G,3GS) will get the OS 4.0 upgrade this summer. Don't expect a new iPad upgrade until next year. It will most likely follow the same upgrade pattern as the iPhones have been following, and that's once a year. Besides...

    NVIDIA Violated Rambus Patents on GPU Memory Controllers

    Again, I believe it has a lot to do w/the CEO's background, be it in engineering or business. As for religion holding back learning, that was true in the Middle Ages. A lot got lost, thanks to the Roman Catholic Church, and it's now being found more and more that what was learned after the...

    From my experience, R&D spending has a lot to do w/a CEO's background. One who was a practicing engineer, tends to think about the future, and does the spending now, though maybe not enough, while one who has a degree in business thinks only about now, and today's profits, and doesn't do any...
