    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    I think it would be fair to say this game will never meet the expectations set almost 10 years ago.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Star citizen a scam spanning decades raking in hundreds of millions of dollars. It seems destined to be one of three things. 1. A VERY special game that loves it's players and it's universe that attracts people that want to live in this living breathing game world. 2. A underwhelming...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    It's just a sad show at this point of watching people throw gas on a burning ship in hopes it will make the trip before it sinks. I envision Chris roberts and team will be the subject of a class action lawsuit before too long.

    Academics steal data from air-gapped systems using PC fan vibrations

    I'm not going to break this up into many sub quotes so my apologies. Yes you can have crowded 2.4ghz communication channels all operating on the same frequency because of the bandwidth on that frequency range meaning the number of times you can chop it up before it becomes saturated and starts...

    Academics steal data from air-gapped systems using PC fan vibrations

    OK to address 1 through 6... in a controlled lab. That's great.. when you have a single server, and a single receiver be that a camera, or audio device listening for the frequency pitches. To elaborate.. on the frequency changes... are you aware of what a white noise generator is...

    Academics steal data from air-gapped systems using PC fan vibrations

    Guys there are very clear scenarios where this can matter. 1. You identify someone responsible for servers in a secure air gap protected facility. 2. You confirm they have access to bring their laptop with them into the facility. 3. You infiltrate their laptop and place code on it that...

    Apple’s A12Z Processor Confirmed to Reuse A12X Silicon

    Wow it's like watching a tennis match between a pro and a gold medal Olympian from the "off season" Olympics in here. I loke the current iPad. My wife loves hers. Should you buy a newer one when it drops? Does it do something you need it to do that your current one doesn't? Then yes...

    Apple’s A12Z Processor Confirmed to Reuse A12X Silicon

    I see people saying 2018 Ipad. I just got my wife the late 2019 model Ipad with the 128 gig storage. She already has a surface book and a samsung phone so now she has compute devices from each major school. Kinda funny. I asked if she wanted an Iphone and she said no she likes her Note.

    China Bans Online Gaming and Chatting Internationally

    I'm sure that businesses exploiting online gaming as a source of income to steal money away from lazy stupid westerners will continue with allowances for them. But they will get easier to block as red tape will (lol red tape.. communist tape..) slow them from getting new IP ranges through...

    Intel Core i9-10900K benchmarks have leaked, and it's still slower than the Ryzen 9 3900X

    If you don't want to multitask and want to burn more power for performance I don't blame you. I went from a 7700k to a R9 3900x and my power use went down even with adding water cooling. I'm not sure how... but there it is.

    Your home ESX server lab hardware specs?

    No just. Commenting about the blade chassis and how smooth that must be.

    Your home ESX server lab hardware specs?

    Not bad especially for at home too. I'm just glad I have a decent lab at work I can play with. Migrating vms between hosts on a common 10gb switch is nice. Must be bad ass on those 100gb backplanes.

    GeForce NOW Open for All

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. I called it. Spectrum just sent me an add to sign up for their streaming gaming service Shadow. Everyone is going to be doing this. It's function as described is chillingly similar to Geforce Now.. almost like a portal license.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker released early on digital platforms

    I'll pay 8 bucks to watch frozen 2 and the latest starwars movies. Seems like a fair trade to me. *shrugs*

    Radeon RX 5700 Series Thermal Issues Points To AMD and NOT AIB Partner Designs!

    Yes that happens but really this is EVGA bitching because there was an updated bios that boosted performance and they did their QA work on the old one and didn't count on the boost figuring 'overclocking pain' or someone else would 'figure it out'.

    Radeon RX 5700 Series Thermal Issues Points To AMD and NOT AIB Partner Designs!

    The way it's meant to be played is completely dependent on what gives me the best experience for my dollar. I hold zero allegiance to any brand.

    Radeon RX 5700 Series Thermal Issues Points To AMD and NOT AIB Partner Designs!

    You don't like going with the best when they are the best? Your choice man. But no need to be a fanboi about it. These things come in cycles and it's always good for consumers when they do!

    Radeon RX 5700 Series Thermal Issues Points To AMD and NOT AIB Partner Designs!

    Let me ask you a question... and bare with me here... it might take some explaining. For the 5700 chipset the cooler designed and tested by AMD had a specific setup/flow/handling of heat characteristics. If the default cooler setup works fine. How is AMD to know if a vendors custom cooler...

    I accidentally broke a $2500 video card... like an idiot

    You can differentiate yourself by going into the engineering behind the hardware you're installing in your kit. For instance explaining how the chiplet layout on an xxxxxx CPU gives performance boosts and why based on your discussions with the vendor using x amount of Cache at these points is...

    Next-Gen GeForce Teaser

    So if it reaches 200 thousand comments that would be 1 in 2597.4 Still FAR better odds than a lot of giveaways, and you don't even need to spend five bucks.

    I accidentally broke a $2500 video card... like an idiot

    They are tech heads trying to branch out and be more marketable to people in general not just tech heads. So they humanize themselves by showing he foibles and mistakes. Like watching a Jackie Chan movie back in the day. He's a total badass but it's still fun to watch him mess up in the end...

    Activision Blizzard Pulls Out of NVIDIA GeForce Now Game Streaming Service

    Remember when streaming in HD was a pipe dream and you'd need a 5mb connection at a minimum for 1 stream? Remember when that was seen as not doable for a long time. As far as the latency issue, once a gaming service gets large enough to have dispersed data centers when you log on...

    Intel to lay off Bay Area employees

    That says to me that there are more people looking for IT work in Texas than in CA. Also take a gander at the unemployment numbers between the two. Plus that isn't # of people but salary change. Nonfarm Wage and Salary Employment So yes the cost to hire someone in California has increased...

    Intel to lay off Bay Area employees

    Austin Tx, DFW Tx, just to name two regions off the top of my head with a lower cost of living and plenty of experienced people. Sure you have to compete with some big names. But even then your cost per employee is less than SFO.

    Activision Blizzard Pulls Out of NVIDIA GeForce Now Game Streaming Service

    Gamers are fineky and resistant to giving up. They want to game the system. Make a hot game that a lot of people want to play exclusive to a streaming service at launch for a window of time. People will flock to the system and as long as the system is bad ass then they will stay. I...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    All they need to do to win is launch the ps5 with a remastered ffvii and art related. To that on the box. Have that be the only way to get that game for three months. Then release the game after that. The FOMO will make people nuts for it and it will sell out in hours.

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    I understand what you are saying. I really do. But... bare with me here. If a game on PC/Console explodes in sales on a phone. Then the mobile customers discover they can get a better than phone experience on a TV with a Console... this is the market the Sony and Xbox's would love...

    Can you name 5 people that have a smartphone that do not game on them in some fashion? No... then there is crossover. Sure it's a rather ephemeral crossover but it is there. Please note the number of people is meant to highlight that the majority of smartphone owners also play games on them...
