    AAA Study Claims Cold Weather Significantly Shortens EV Range

    This. When you temp gauge stops moving your thermostat is opening and your engine and water are now 'heat soaked' and is operating at optimum temperature. Also, the reason why your mileage is going down, as well, is because the colder air is way more dense to a combustion engine than 70-90...

    Researchers Fabricate 2.5 Nanometer Transistors

    So the width of this thing is like 2 to 4 atoms? Fucking nuts. You have to be grateful for the people who have built modern times in the past 70 years, there are people sitting in a room somewhere where they have dedicated their lives to calculations and trial and error to make this shit work.

    EVGA 2080 Ti XC Catches Fire in Spectacular Fashion

    I'm thinking about making my wall socket 240v for efficiency purposes, all you need is a circuit breaker that connects to both legs of power in your breaker box, the correct wire and maybe a 3 prong wall socket thats made to handle it.

    Tech to Blame for Ever-Growing Repair Costs, AAA Says

    That higher compression will help in low rev situations. I'm not sure what you are worried about. You might want to look into a silverado with a 4.3L vortec in it, but I dont think they offer that motor anymore in those and most of the time it had a manual transmission in it, it would be ideal...

    Capcom Finalizes Deal to Turn "Mega Man" into Live-Action Film

    They will make MegaMan an African-American (BLACK). Bet you a bajillion dollars that is what will end up happening.... And holy shit, had a idea while I was typing that........It's a woman who wants to be a man and they perform an experiment on her that makes her a MegaMan, this is like the...

    ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 4K Preview @ [H]

    So when the graphics are mainly GPU dependent, the 2080TI is a ~50 percent performance gain for double the price of a 1080TI and thats at 4k.......damn Nvidia is smart. They know people will buy the hell out of them now but its such a fine line when it comes to it being overpriced. After seeing...

    Official Final Fantasy XV Benchmarks Feature the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 & 2080 Ti

    I agree with your pricing explanation to an extent, the shit part is is that Nvidia is pricing their cards like they are ultra rare lambos. Which it isn't, they are price gouging at this point but no one is challenging them and they know they have the fastest thing right now so they do it. When...

    Official Final Fantasy XV Benchmarks Feature the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 & 2080 Ti

    True, true. Im not denying that but I was just talking about the cars themselves which is why I said omit status. Other than status there isn't much difference when it comes to performance in most (and I emphasize MOST) supercars nowadays (for instance corvette vs Farrari) except price. If the...

    Official Final Fantasy XV Benchmarks Feature the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 & 2080 Ti

    Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass Contains Episodic Content and Surprises

    Same. I think its because it wasn't ALL about the revolution like that made it out to be before the game came out, and Connor wasn't a good character for a main top tier assassin, he seemed like more of a side character to me, still liked the game though. Just my 2 cents.

    Samsung Announces QLED 8K TV for Consumers

    Shocker at foreigners telling the US population how bad we have it. So tired of hearing that shit when it isn't true. And you can't compare any other country to Japan when it comes to electronics and the availability of them. Except to maybe South Korea. PROPAGANDA EVERYWHERE.

    DICE Made Nvidia’s Ray Traced Gaming Dreams a Reality in Just Eight Months

    Well it does say they went very "wide" to offload the work. Probably made it that way as a fail-safe I guess to get it working since they didn't have the actual hardware. Kind of like "regardless what the hardware can specifically do this will work". Thats what I took from it anyway.

    AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX & 2950X CPU Review @ [H]

    Don't see how companies can still not buy AMD for workstations at this point, AMD should take over the damn market with this kind of pricing and performance at this level. Unless Intel has them in some sneaky iron clad contracts paid for with their souls. Yeah....that's probably it.

    Thats weird, in the AirForce we would actually schedule a jet to become a CANN jet and they would rotate them out because how long it took parts to come in but it was normal practice in the AirForce. They would try to make them FMC/MC again before a month went by so it wouldn't go hangar queen...
