    AI Accelerator Cards in Desktops?

    I just want Jensen to increase the number of tensor cores and VRAM in his cards, so I can game AND run LLMs locally without paying extra for 2 cards. A 64 GB VRAM 5070 is what I want.

    How many 4080/4090 owners plan to upgrade to a respective 50 series when available?

    The 5000 series will be interesting. I suspect the main question will change from "how many fps will I get in Crysis/Avatar/etc" to "how many tps will I get from Mixtral-8x7B".

    Update your WinRAR installs!

    I prefer WinRAR over 7zip because it has out-of-the-box support for multiple select -> right click -> extract each archive to separate folder.

    Amazon CEO Andy Jassy threatens employees to return to office or "things are probably not going to work out for you"

    Yeah, at the very beginning. A lot of it had to do with the mismanagement of care homes for old people. But if you take the whole pandemic into account, the deaths/capita was actually lower than many other places, especially those with draconian lockdowns where many people died of preventable...

    Amazon CEO Andy Jassy threatens employees to return to office or "things are probably not going to work out for you"

    It looks like Sweden, without forcing lockdowns and masks, actually did better overall. But WFH and workers' rights in general are pretty big things in Scandinavia, so that might have had something to do with it.

    AMD Plays the VRAM Card Against NVIDIA

    AMD, make a card with 48 GB VRAM in order to be able to run 70B parameter LLMs locally, and you will have a winner.

    DLSS is the true revolution in gaming, not ray tracing

    I think AI 3D scene/level generation via LLM will dwarf both of these.

    GitHub accused of varying Copilot output to avoid copyright allegations

    If a human with eidetic memory (or just very good memory) sees some licensed code and decides to use it for his own projects, while altering it here and there, is he breaking any laws? There is no qualitative difference between what such a person is doing and what a transformer neural network is...

    Samsung Profits Plunge by 96%

    After 4 years of extortion pricing for GPUs, people are moving on to hobbies that don't require much more than the cheapest internet client. I'd rather pay 20$ a month to OpenAI for ChatGPT Plus than invest that money in hardware. What I have is overall good enough for the rather simple indie...

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Developer Is Victim of Hacker Group, GSC Game World Issues Statement

    We do pay here in Romania, we have a 2% defense budget that goes directly into NATO defense, as per Donald Trump's instructions. We'd gladly pay more if we didn't have our countries bankrupted by 45 years of communism after you guys abandoned us to the Russians back in 1945. I certainly hope...

    Microsoft's ChatGPT powered Bing Search Suffers Mental Breakdown

    I've followed the r/bing subreddit and some people have been acting really unhinged, even more so than the AI itself. Even the NYT reporter, instead of asking it to demonstrate what it can really do (write essays, summarize search results, write code), continued to prod the AI even after the AI...

    I didn't get access to Bing, but from reading online I grew to like the Sydney persona, in spite of its occasional mental health issues.

    GTX 1060 finally dethroned as top GPU on steam!!! By the 1650...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    My current card, the RTX 2070. I have it for 3 years now, tied with the 980 Ti in longevity, but with no signs of being able to replace it anytime soon. Even today, I literally cannot buy a card of similar performance for what I bought the RTX 2070 back in 2018. Still kicking myself for not...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Why would anyone install a beta version of Windows without waiting for at least a year of patches? This should be common sense by now, then again I am old enough to have used every version of Windows since 3.0.

    Bitcoin value cut in half as cryptocurrencies tumble in weekend slide 05-24-2021

    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    I play games with laughably low graphic requirements like Factorio, though fortunately thanks to my 2070 I can also afford playing Subnautica: Below Zero, Transport Fever 2, or Satisfactory maxed out at 1080p. I still have a full HD monitor and probably would have got at least a 1440p one if I...
