    Rekx reacted to Lays in MSI 980TI Lightning Revealed [Reviewed by guru3d]   
    Why would they be calling it a duo frozr if it's triple fan, in the past they called the Lightning 3 fan cooler "tri-frozr"  I don't think they will put a little baby fan in the middle again, nobody liked it that had one, because the little baby fan barely did anything and made way more noise than the other 2 fans.
     
    Seeing as the accents say "O C" and there's only 2 accents, I think those accents are surrounding 2 fans.

    Rekx reacted to GoodBytes in "Hey Cortana, wake up my PC!" A possibility with Intel Skylake CPUs   
    Intel announced a new Skylake CPUs feature which works with Windows 10. This new feature enables the CPU to always listening to your mic when your system is sleeping. Much like the XBox One with Kinect when enabled, it will allow a user to be able to wake up the system if it is sleeping by saying, "Cortana, wake up" or a similar voice command.

    Intel presented this feature at its Developer Forum in San Francisco, yesterday. The company says that its current Core M series CPUs already supports this feature as well, and should be enabled in Windows 10.
    No news however, if Windows 10 currently released build actually support this feature or an update is expected to be out later on. I can't verify, I don't have a Skylake CPU or a Core M one. The feature is Skylake and Core M exclusive as it is has the built-in hardware to be able to support this feature.

    Rekx reacted to GoodBytes in GeForce Experience Update - Play co-op over the web and share game   
    Nvidia is working in adding new set of features to GeForce Experience.
    The software will allow gamers to stream their game to another user's PC over the Internet, and allow them to play cooperatively with a just a single copy with a friend. The feature will be called: Nvidia Shield! GameStream co-op.


    It is launching in the coming weeks as beta form.
    The company says that GameStream co-op will only support 720p streaming at 60 FPS using h.264 encoding at first, with a minimum 6Mbps upload speed recommended. The co-op player or viewer can view it/play via a Google Chrome plug-in, so technically speaking, from what we know, if teh player has intel integrated graphics solution only or AMD, they will be able to join with the host.
    In addition to this, Nvidia says that their will release a new GUI for its ShadowPlay DVR capture suite.
    Finally, GeForce Experience will no longer boost the best graphics with it's auto=tune feature for MOBA games, but rather try and achieve 120fps. So many, expect a visual degradation in both settings and resolution, if you don't have a powerful graphics card (or you can turn it off).

    So you may wonder, what the distance, to the nearest fiber node is?
     
     
    But fear not!
     
     
    Ended up getting NNTC instead
     
     
    25/25 for 140$ That's the price for 500/500 fiber in Denmark.

    How remote is remote? My mother lives in a town of 3500 and they have fiber..But the geography is completely different in the united states. Im not saying that this price isn't expensive but remote means something very different in such a big country.
    Unless your dad lives on a really remote farm, this is just not the same.
     
    I just reread the article again.....4,5 miles does not seem that far....If there is not many customers in that area, I can understand why they would demand that he pays all the establisment fees.
     
    Although there might be political reasons why the ISPs should pay as @Trik'Stari has been writing about.
     
    This was just about the whole "This is the price for fiber in denmark" thing....We are pleased in terms of fiber here, but its still a bit of a bad comparison

    - Power user phone
    - doesn't have removable battery, doesn't have a high capacity battery, doesn't have a microSD slot, doesn't have a 128gb storage option
    Umm....Samsung? We need to talk. And it's not about the S2 watch that no one cares about (smart watches are not that big even now, unless you have Apples fan base)
    You turned your power user Note into a larger S6. But we have a larger S6 now, so what's going on? The S Pen doesn't overcome the obvious lack of battery life and expandable storage.
    Android is not as good with power management and Samsug isn't the best out of all of the Android OEMs - what the hell were they thinking?
    This is truly a downgrade from the Note 4.
    Thinner for what? Looks? Glass back for what? Looks? Don't you dare tell me they couldn't have maintained removable batteries and mSD and still had a glass back, that isn't rocket science. This is disappointing.
    I don't know what to upgrade to. At least the Note 4 will become cheaper as a result.

    I'm hugely disappointed about the battery. I was hoping it'd be the rumored 4100mah, but 3000mah and fast charging is just such a cop out. Almost wish Qualcomm hadn't invented it.
     
    You hit the nail on the head with the storage. They'll get more profits if they can sell the higher storage option ones. Companies look for profit. It's not overly surprising.
    There's also the fact that a lot of people will just shove low quality microSD cards in there and complain about how they're slow or lost their data, and then blame the phone.
    I've seen it happen over and over again. So I do kind of understand phasing them out. Though I'm not overly happy about it.
     
    Glass backs look so good for the first 30 seconds though! I think they're possibly the worst thing on todays phones.
     
    I don't see the massive appeal for USB Type C. I never had a problem plugging in my phone. So I'm not super disappointed it's not there.
     
    Haha, how is one speaker on the top and one at the bottom any kind of improvement? It'd be worse, if anything. Much worse. Plus the phone would be larger to include it.
    I hate bottom facing speakers. I think back facing is almost better, at least it's easier to cup.
    I'm glad more companies are going front facing though, if the new Nexus rumors are true.
    All I need to hear now is that the Huawei Nexus phablet is dual SIM and it'll be my next phone.

    The Moto X Style/Pure, with its microSD card slot, seems like a better phone honestly. Too bad the battery on that is only 3000mAh too.
     
    Give us a 3400mAh or bigger battery if you're gonna seal it in there, thanks.
