    how far have the apu caught up with gpu performance?

    The big barrier for APU performance is memory bandwidth. GPUs need a lot more memory bandwidth than CPUs, and typical dual-channel DDR4 system memory just can't get you more than low-end performance.

    VRAM on GPUs

    It tends to overclock better.

    Is my PSU not big enough?

    Those are overestimates. An extreme overestimate in the case of the CPU, a more modest overestimate for the GPU. The small OC and overvolt might push the CPU to around 125W. Likewise, the RX 470 might be pushed to around 170W. As a result, OP is completely fine on the wattage. The CX600M isn't the greatest quality, but these problems don't seem like a manifestation of a PSU issue anyway.

    EU copyright bill negotiations cancelled

    Article 11 and 13 were developed long before Romania took over. It's unclear how much Romania changed in the latest draft (might be very little). Well, it's not the only source. And the Techdirt article links directly to the Twitter account of an MEP campaigning for digital rights, talking about this.

    EU copyright bill negotiations cancelled

    One of the big countries in favor is about to leave, so there's that.

    EU copyright bill negotiations cancelled

    Romania is just leading the negotiations now because they just took over the leadership role. The text was negotiated mainly by the EU parliament, though I guess Romania's latest draft was crappy.
  7. The ongoing saga of the controversial proposal for a new EU directive on copyright took a surprising twist last night, as the "final" negotiations on what the directive would look like have been cancelled due to mounting opposition. This is the proposal with article 11 and article 13 that you may have heard a lot about. Link taxes and upload filters have faced strong opposition from digital rights groups, though corporations like Google and Facebook have also weighed in with significant lobbying. Swaying the Italian government against the bill appears to have been a major factor in the breakdown, which leaves the proposal with bleak prospects, though not officially stone dead. So that's good news for the internet as we know it. The EU legislative process has vacillated on this for a long time, and now seems to be swaying in the right direction at the goal line.

    Aorus Monitor: Yay or nay?

    The input lag is very impressive, but it doesn't really matter compared to eg. the group of monitors with around 2-3ms of lag. You'd never notice the difference. I think with that kind of price tag, it should perhaps be Freesync 2 rather than Freesync 1. Seems like a good monitor otherwise.

    Is Ryzen a Good Choice?

    GPU encoding is more limited in what it can do, since it's an ASIC. CPU encoding provides much more flexibility. Whether you need that flexibility depends on what you're looking to do.

    Intel buying out AMD rumors

    Walmart's not a monopoly, and the other ones you mention are quintessential natural monopolies subject to strict regulation.

    Intel buying out AMD rumors

    Depends who's enforcing the laws. Like the old telephone monopoly got split up in the 1980s, then was allowed to rebuild in the 1990s. You can definitely make the case that it's illegal. You just need the regulators to actually go and make that case.

    Need a decent PSU

    You can get a Bitfenix Formula Gold 550W for $50. That's very good quality at a pretty amazing price.

    Why is SLI dead?

    The support for it in games and the driver is poor. Most people only have a single card, so the devs don't devote significant resources to making SLI run well. This lacking support creates a feedback loop; fewer people invest in SLI setups, which then makes it even less worth it for devs to work on SLI optimization.

    Please go back to 16:9 (Poll added)

    My point is black bars are bad regardless of their orientation.
