    Sony Is Skipping E3 2019 and Won’t Host Their Own PlayStation Experience

    E3 is turning into a giant shareholders meeting anyway, it started in 2017 but was really bad this year with Microsoft, EA & Ubisoft all focusing more on business decisions than games. I reckon E3 is going to become less and less relevant as time goes on, Nintendo don't care about it anymore, Sony probably won't go back again if 2019 turns out to be more business, EA already moved their conference out of E3s main arena a few years back. The best thing about the last 2 E3s has been devolver digital.

    PC not wanting to boot into OS

    Accessing the files is pretty trivial, create yourself an Ubuntu installer, boot it in live mode and copy your files onto the second drive. In the UEFI is the setting called Compatibility Support Module or CSM disabled or enabled?

    PC not wanting to boot into OS

    Is (or was I should say) the computer booting in UEFI or Legacy mode?

    Command And Conquer and Red Alert 4K Remaster, No Microtransactions!

    That's a very eloquent way of putting it.

    Help me figure this out!

    Go into your UEFI and disable all C States you can find, also disable Speedstep AKA EIST and finally make sure XMP is enabled. Next boot into Windows, head into Control Panel > Power, click Show More Options and set the power plan to Maximum. That's everything you can do (outside of overclocking) to speed your CPU up but remember what I said, Battlefield is notoriously a very CPU intensive game anyway.

    WIndows installer missing files

    Is that booting from USB? Has the hard drive been in a PC before? If you run multiple hard drives in a computer at the same time and use legacy boot mode sometimes Windows can put the bootloader on the wrong drive. That would cause an error like this when the drive is moved to another computer.

    Help me figure this out!

    That's called a CPU bottleneck, the CPU is starving the GPU of work. It's likely the systems you're comparing to are overclocked hence the improved performance. Furmark is a synthetic GPU benchmark, it's designed to stress the GPU and isn't real world at all. Remember any game has all the actual game calculations to perform on the CPU as well as drawing the game on the GPU. The solution is get a faster CPU or overclock however remember Battlefield is notoriously a very CPU intensive game anyway, that experience will differ on a game by game basis.
  9. What in all that is holy did I just watch? I want my 3 and a half minutes back.
  10. So you're saying i should pour chicken blood over my CPU to prevent Spectre & Meltdown? Edit I shouldn't have to do this but JIC... DO NOT POUR CHICKEN BLOOD OVER YOUR PC!!!
  11. I think they used local as a qualifier because theres speculation of a remote variant that researchers are currently trying to find. I left it out of my post but here it is...
  12. A team of 7 researchers, including some of the team who originally discovered Spectre & Meltdown, have published a paper outlining several new variants of the bugs, the team is also pushing for a name change from Speculative Execution to Transient Execution. All in all the team has discovered two new Meltdown variants and five new Spectre branches. Perhaps most interesting to me is they were able to demonstrate Meltdown running on AMD Ryzen based hardware for this first time ever. Despite the researchers saying otherwiseboth Intel & ARM say these new attacks can be mitigated using existing patches, AMD have remained silent so far. Industry expertssay no current mitigation technique is perfect and a fundamental redesign of hardware is required to fix this properly. The group finished the paper with the following statement https://www.theregister.co.uk/AMP/2018/11/14/spectre_meltdown_variants/ This situation keeps getting worse and worse. Seems like Intel & ARM have taken to sticking their fingers in their ears and shouting to try and drown out the noise.
