    It was literally, literally, only 9 panels, not pages, out of the few thousand that touched on it. No actual visuals were shown, just implied.
     
    I literally went into this to see the controversy and I see that it's, once again, blown out of proportions when the mangaka ran it as tastefully and with as much impact as he could.

    I don't believe for a second that Microsoft actually follows these things (after all, leaks has showed that they have gladly handed over master keys and created backdoors for the US government before), but it's at least nice of Satya to say it.

    First there was variable rate shading where parts of the scene were shaded at a lower rate (i.e., resolution) for better performance in places where you likely wouldn't notice the detail difference.
     
    Now we have the opposite: shading certain parts of the scene at a higher rate. While it seemed to be originally meant for VR to give where you're focusing at higher resolution, I wonder if they can bring this to games in general.

    Something on the back of my mind that resurfaced while I was looking for stuff about Turing.
     
    One of the major architectural changes was that NVIDIA made it so Turing can do FP and INT operations at the same time, rather than one or the other. However, this had an effect of making shaders that were either FP or INT. Pascal had 128 shaders per TPC which were FP + INT. Turing has the same 128 shaders per TPC, but they're split between 64 FP and 64 INT.  In NVIDIA's whitepaper on Turing they claimed that on average in the games they've sampled there were 36 INT operations per 100 FP operations. This is about a 26%/74% split between INT and FP.
     
    Looking at the RTX 2060 Super and the GTX 1080, two cards that have similar performance, not only does the RTX 2060 Super have fewer shaders (2176 vs 2560 on the 1080), it's also specc'd to run slower. And since half of those shaders are dedicated to INT, that means the RTX 2060 Super only really has 1088 FP shaders to work with. Even if we pretended that for the 1080, 74% of the shaders were doing FP and 26% were doing INT (I don't think this is how it's really partitioned), that's still only 1894 shaders doing FP work.
     
    So either 1088 shaders are doing the work of 1894 shaders, or something else is up.

    Question everything and do some research. I've learned so much by going against "conventional wisdom," which I'm finding half the time is not entirely correct or is misleading. Don't sweat the small stuff, lest you like bickering over semantics. Or rather, as long as it gets the point across, does it matter? Say what you want and move on. At least until someone boops you. Use what you know responsibly

    This is why I kind of hate USB-C. The only thing good that came of it was the connector.

    This is the same standard which Firefox and Cloudflare collaborated on earlier, and earned Firefox the title "Internet Villain" when a group of butthurt UK based ISPs realized it would make it much harder for them to snoop on which sites their customers were browsing.
