Did you see they are going to molest notepad too? They are adding tabs. file explorer too.
The only reason to add tabs to notepad and explorer is if you are one of those Neanderthals who runs every program maximized. There's a reason its called WINDOWS, people!!!!
The last time I needed quad+ precision numbers, I translated an arbitrary precision library. It worked great, except it was extremely slow.
Not something I use every day, but when you need it, you need it.
For what its worth, I went on a retro hardware resuscitation mission last week.
My main objective was to find out what was on a pair of Conner 420 Mb ide hard drives I have been toting around for the last 30 years. (I also have a lot of other stuff like 30 pin simms that I have absolutely no...
Don' t worry about it. Yes, there may be a point where you do not get the best bang for your buck, but so what? You won't get worse from what you have now. Get the cpu that supports the connectivity and non game tasks you need, and its all gravy.

When the answer to those questions is "yes" then raytracing will be a must-have. If it just makes things prettier... meh.
They need to use ray tracing (and other new technologies) to enhance gameplay instead of just enhancing visuals.
If you gain an advantage, say, like if you could better tell that an enemy was around a corner because of a realistic shadow or reflection from a puddle, then it would be worth it.
Eh, I've heard it all. The computer case called the "CPU", the old 3 1/2" floppy called hard disks, hard disk called memory, CDs called records, etc. Some are inadvertently correct, but didn't follow the mainstream definition.
Technology moves faster than most people do. Including me...
What if you had windmills several miles off the shore of southern California,spraying seawater in a fine mist up in the air. Would that allow the water to evaporate without carrying the salt with it? Then that extra water would hopefully dump out over the southwest.
Just a silly idea I just...
I guess no one here has a house near a wind turbine.
They are very loud. and of your house is in the shadow of one, the strobe effect of the sunlight is actually harmful to health.
Now a lot of places have increased the setback distances where wind turbines can be located, but 20 years ago...
