      i would've gone with the flow if they'd done things right , but for similar or worse actions they turn a blind eye & don't make a fuss about  it as much as they would've for the opposing side, they expect the audience to be gullible. not once or twice, simply too many times & still going.

      Only problem the highlands don't have good roads. They are all single lane tracks which makes traveling much slower compared to highways at night..

      it's crazy to think that intel can be competitive in the gpu market. but it just might happen. 

       

      and if they do, i'll be happy. Intel stuff generally works well on Linux. both nvidia's and amd's linux drivers are kind of a mess sometimes. i've never had an issue with an intel gpu on linux so... 

    3. dizmo

      dizmo

      @Jurrunio Aye, but Intel's come leaps and bounds in a single generation of their integrated graphics. Shows something's working behind the curtain.

      @firelighter487 Not too surprising, they're a massive company. It only makes sense to expand into the GPU space, especially with AI and deep learning becoming more and more of a thing. If they stick to traditional CPUs they'll fall into obsolescence.

    4. Jurrunio

      I'm interested in memory used for the testing though, as faster iGPUs always do significantly better with faster memory. I mean, I'm not surprised if data from leaks are using Hwbot worthy memory setting after that chiller event

  14. A random thought: When reviewers tested RTX GPUs, they tested their power consumption in GPU-intensive games, or synthetic benchmarks such as FurMark.

    However, they never tested the power draw when RT and Tensor cores were loaded, so in games that use those RTX features you're going to obviously get more power drawn because more hardware is active that way... I wonder what the numbers look like in that case.

    1. Ryan_Vickers

      Ryan_Vickers

      Unless the card as a whole is power capped and by activating those extra cores you'll actually lose performance in the traditional core.

      Also a new form of bottleneck, as BFV demonstrated you can get Tensor bottlenecked with high resolutions and ultra DXR at the same time.

      yah, they doubled the minimum deduction, but they did away with personal exemptions, so they could claim it's a tax cut but not really. I set up my withholding to be tax neutral so I make more but don't get a return, the only time it screws me is if they decide to change what they're going to tax you for mid year like they did in 2018. 

      They basically raised taxes retroactively, in a way.

      Don't you sell stuff online? Really, your tax bill should always be $0. Unless you're having an extremely successful year sales wise.

      No, I work, selling stuff online is side money, and I really didn't as much in 2018

      i would love to have this but at the same time one less port for an adapter method seems a bit fitting in terms of overall design, this just an opinion , but if you're already planning to hook up a thick Ethernet cable to it , but to compromise the whole design aspect of the lapt for it for the real-estate it takes. adapter is a good way.

  17. Greg Gutfeld, of Fox News, asked on air if Social Security is "socialist". 

     

    My heart winced so hard, I was without pulse for a minute. 

     

    How do you have a job as a newscaster (or whatever) when you have to ask such inane questions?

      No journalist is perfect, especially when at least half of your job is to speculate, as is the case with Greg Gutfield.  Regardless of what he says or whether I agree with it or not, I usually find Greg to be hilarious.  😂

       

      Social Security is welfare, which is a large aspect of socialism.  Does that make it a socialist policy?  Honestly, I feel like that's a political grey-area.  I'm not sure myself, because both "yes" and "no" are valid responses with good supporting arguments & evidence.  What about an economic perspective on the issue?  I'd say it's economically socialist, but I'd also ask @CUDAcores89 because he's more knowledgeable.

    4. CUDAcores89

      CUDAcores89

      Regardless of what you think of social security: there are two things that are facts about it:

       

      1. When you me, and every young person on this forum has our turn to retire, we will only be receiving 80 cents on the dollar back that we pay into social security after adjusted for inflation. Why is this? Well this brings me to my next point.

       

      2. Social security is the very definition of a ponzi scheme. The money you pay into social security isnt being put into some sort of "trust fund" where it will be given back to you when you turn 65. The money is going right back out to pay for retirees TODAY. 

       

      Now lets circle back to part one, why you will only receive 80 cents on the dollar. Its because when social security started, the first generation (the silent generation) paid barely anything into it but got back thousands in benifets. The next generation (baby boomers) paid back the prevoius generations deficit due to the large population boom and were able to mostly recieve what they paid in right back. The in the 1980s something changed. People werent having as many babies to replace the old generation meaning social security is at risk of going bankrupt. So who is going to come to pick up the tab for the deficit? Thats right, millenials and gen Z. THAT is why we will only get back 80 cents on the dollar. Because we have to pay for the people who came before us because the government mafia stole our labor through a nice sounding program.

       

      I dont care if you are socialist, capitalist or what. It is a fact of life that when we retire, our social security benifets will be cut 20%, meaning we will be the ones to come in and make up for the deficit meaning we get back LESS than we paid in. Remember, we are the generation who is also currently crushed with student loan debt. 

       

      By the year 2024, the US will spend more

      on interest payments to service our debt than we currently spend on millitary paying back our government debt. Who will be expected to sholder that debt? Our generation of course. I didnt consent to taking on this debt. This debt is outright theft because the prevoius generation has effectively stolen the future generations productivity. 

       

      Back to social security. Believe it or not yes, I do believe in the premise of social security. but only because people are idiots who dont save. Because thrse people do not save, we are going to force you to save for retirement. Okay thats fine because I was already doing that.

       

      What I DO NOT like about the implimentation in the US is that it is government managed meaning your money is invested in treasury bonds. The assets held in social security is literally a giant government IOU. I vastly prefer the way canada (of all places) manages their social security. 

       

      Instead of social security money going into a giant trust fund, it goes into the hands of a private corporation who invests all the money in the stock market. This provides far better returns than treasury bonds (0.3% real return vs 7% real return), and also prevents the fund from ever going bankrupt because it is managed by a private firm. If the stock market goes down, your benifets are cut. If the stock market goes up, the benifets increase. 

       

      In an ideal world what I would really allow people to do is manage their social security themselves. Yes the government is going to tax me and force me to save, but I am allowed to keep the money in a tax deferred retirement account where I get to choose my own mix of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds myself. This way the government van never borrow or steal my money since it is under my control.

       

      The privatization of social security was at one point proposed by George Bush. But then the 2008 housing bubble burst and suddenly everyone said it was a bad idea even though the stock market recovered a few years later.

       

      TL:DR: yes I begrudgingly agree with the idea of social security as a forced savings. But beyond this I should have the right to decide what I will and will not do with my social security money so the government cant steal it from me.

  18. Alright, with my experience with a flagship phone I would like to make a few observations. 

     

    I have only plugged a cable into the USB C port twice throughout me owning it.  I pretty much exclusively use wireless charging.  I transfer through FTP, so I don't even plug it in to transfer files. 

     

    So I more or less have an unused port, so my opinion of removing the headphone jack has changed.  I don't mind it as much, I would still like 2 USB C ports as a replacement for the times that I'm on the road and need to use a battery bank, or for USB OTG purposes while still listening to music, but a quarter inch headphone dongle isn't the end of the world with wireless charging and the extra features that modern flagship phones have.

      I've been thinking about picking up a wireless charging pad for a while now. Just haven't pulled the trigger.

      I'm in the same boat as you. I rarely use any ports aside from the charging one currently, and that's just because I haven't switched over.

    3. Ryan_Vickers

      Ryan_Vickers

      Obviously the next step is no ports at all.  People joked (in a "actually this isn't a joke we know it's coming but it's a joke because it's so stupid" sort of way) that was coming when the headphone jack was removed and it looks like we're close since some devices were even announced already.

      @DrMacintosh None, because batteries deteriorate over time and any OS or application becomes more hardware-intensive as more features are added, even in Apple's case.

       

      Yes, iPhones' practical longevity is the best on the market HANDS DOWN, but no iPhone from 2015 is "good as new."  Hell, my iPhone SE from late 2016 is not what it used to be.

  19. I should not pay sales tax when the company I'm buying from pays $0 in federal taxes. Lock em' up!

  21. I can't wait to play Unravel 2 today. I enjoyed the first game so much.

  22. I thinknive learned some interesting things about myself:

     

    If I am doing something productive, I am happy and not bored.

     

    If i am not doing anything productive, I am sad and depressed.

     

    I would argue this is the single biggest reason people are depressed. They feel like they dont have a purpose or anything to work for.

      well, if a laptop is dead that usually means a motherboard issue. and mobo's for a very specific laptop that was made 13 years ago are kinda rare. so unless you can find one that just needs a new hdd or something you're out of luck i guess. 

       

      unless you know how to fix a mobo.

      It's random, he'll try and fix it, and it he fails, it's a coaster.

       

      Also, yeah. I wouldn't rebuy my 1st computer - it was a pos HP D330uT, and it's not worth the money. I threw it out in mid 2018. Not sure if I'll regret that decision. Haven't yet tbh.
