    Intel ARC Performance and Pricing Speculation

    Can't judge it until benched against the Nv 1630.

    GTX 1630 to release in 2022. Seriously.

    The ARC competition has arrived!

    Intel ARC Performance and Pricing Speculation

    If we wait long enough, AMD will release something that's slower than the A380 (give it time)

    Do Lan Parties happen any more?

    LAN parties are now called COVID parties. If the space is tight, it can be upgraded to a Monkeypox party.

    Senators call for US to follow EU's lead in creating a national standard for phone chargers

    "It made better sense for the USA standard to be the USA standard. Fortunately, we have created a small adapter that can be used between the USA format and whatever the EU is using."

    Intel ARC Performance and Pricing Speculation

    Intel: Also requires an Nvidia 3080 Ti or higher. But other than that, should work with any system.

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    Somehow buying the used car makes me feel better than taking my neighbors. Maybe just me.

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    Apples M2 looks like a beast.

    And, like Apple, likely you can't buy those CPUs either.

    Apples M2 looks like a beast.

    I would say they have embraced and extended ARM so as to make it "not ARM" anymore though. It's their own thing. Much like MacOS and any suggestion with regards to its roots. "Evolution of ARM"? I suppose, but ARM that nobody but Apple can have.

    Apples M2 looks like a beast.

    Company: You can make exceptions to our standard issue laptops on approval. Employee: I require the Dragon's Breath 21" Mega Monster RGB Special Edition 8K with built-in smoke, 32GB, 2TB NVMe and 3090 (mobile) please. I need it for productivity work. The normal laptop can't handle the...

    Apples M2 looks like a beast.

    My point is that M1 and M2 are Apple only things. Just as I'm moderately interested in IBM Power or Oracle Sun Sparc or Intel Itanium. Edit: Becomes a bit more interesting with the Linux port, which is pretty early on. But even still it's much like the following: Do you have Linux ported...

    Apples M2 looks like a beast.

    From a purely tech point of view, I think it's "great". But unless you're locked into the Apple eco-system already, it's just "tech".

    Pretty sure the ARC cards will initially be bundled with Half Life 3.

    Broadcom to buy VMware in $61 billion acquisition

    We ran oVirt and I could totally do more with it and faster than anything VMware has. VMware is old. It hasn't changed all that much from 10 years ago (or more). Just saying. There's a ton of advantages in not choosing VMware. I think if you really talk to people that have truly used...

    Broadcom to buy VMware in $61 billion acquisition

    Well, maybe if your annual bill for VMware is in the hundreds of millions (which isn't hard to imagine with VMware pricing). I'd say your statement is "false". Lots of business either went to cloud (which is bigger than big on virtualization and doesn't run on VMware) or moved to something KVM...

    What is your Widows timeline?

    MS Grunt: "I think we should name our office products Word, Excel, Powerpoint!" MS Exec: Those sound ok. MS Grunt: "I want a raise." MS Exec: No. And there's the door. MS Exec: I think I'll call our new embedded OS, CE... Windows CE, or WinCE for short. Yeah, now that's a good name.

    What is your Widows timeline?

    NT didn't even understand ethernet until like SP4 or 5. Bad memories.

    Plus 1 for running many of the "weirdows" versions.

    Of course, that does depend quite a lot on version of Windows, just saying.

    Intel ARC Performance and Pricing Speculation

    You only need a absolutely crappy card or whatever for QSV. Maybe that is their goal (to not compete at all with anyone), but I think that's unlikely. My point is, not sure Intel is trying to create 25W cards for servers as part of this, but I could be wrong.

    You need the poo poo crapola Intel card for this.... not what Intel is talking about.

    Intel ARC Performance and Pricing Speculation

    Perhaps, but it would take this kind of "forced" (coercion) style to make it happen. And that's not nice. Regardless, if AV1 encoding becomes a "universal" requirement, look for the competition to support it quickly, which also means that at best, Intel has a very very short lived presence...

    Intel ARC Performance and Pricing Speculation

    Timing is everything. And now, after all the delay, missing the "shortage" boat, now AMD is going to have GPUs on most all their desktop CPUs. Again, timing is everything. Intel missed a big window of opportunity. Have a feeling Intel may have just bricked their product before delivery.

    Broadcom to buy VMware in $61 billion acquisition

    My recent VMware support is like: "Did that work?" No. "How about now?" No. "Now?" No. "Try this. Now?" No. "I don't see how this will help, how about now?" Yes... seems like it's working. "Hmmm... ok... I'm going to mark the ticket closed, make sure you give us a great rating."

    As it seems there will never be a 16:10 with any gaming options I finally ordered a XG321UG to replace the 30" Dells

    Sorry, I should have said some prefer "less". But, that's unusual IMHO.

    As it seems there will never be a 16:10 with any gaming options I finally ordered a XG321UG to replace the 30" Dells

    I get it 16:9, it's all you've every had... I get it. You'll just have to trust me (and I can't believe I have to say this), more is better. We took a huge step backwards when the "HD" revolution took place, we were so much more ahead of that.

    Will VMs ever be as fast as on a real system ?

    VMware Workstation isn't what I'd call an enterprise hypervisor, it's Type 2. It's an old (very old now) way to create VMs for desktop users. You could use Linux and Linux KVM and still have a full desktop plus a real Type 1 hypervisor with about a 1% degradation (if that much) Will VMs lag...
