  1. Bad news: A Spectre-like flaw will probably happen again

    The issue arises from speculative execution. It can very well happen on in order cores.
  2. Bad news: A Spectre-like flaw will probably happen again

    And performance would be worse, with extra costs due to overhead.
  3. r5 2400G and r3 2200G will have an igpu . They come out in february.
  4. Controllers have changed .Intercompatibility isn't guaranteed , so it should be named 3.1
  5. Hobby for a nerd

    Build an 8 bit computer
  6. uhhh... what did I do and how do I reverse it?

    registry editor
  7. When will the new Ryzen Cpu's come out

    They launch in april. Can't say about widespread availability though. But cpu supply was fine with ryzen 1 so there's no reason to believe it'll be any different here either.
  8. AMD Athlon x4 880k microarchitecture question

    I can confirm that it is steamroller. It's basically a refreshed 860k. The only excavator we ever got for fm2+ was the athlon x4 845
  9. Gpu needed?

    6600k has an igpu with quicksync already.Won't look the best , but it will work.
  10. AMD Athlon X4 880K?

    The 880k is last gen . I wouldn't buy it IMO.
  11. I'd like to put a number out there : 7 million. That's the number of premature deaths caused by air pollution every year according to W.H.O. Pollution caused by cars , coal plants , gas plants etc. A pure electric and nuclear world wouldn't have those deaths. That's not counting the lives lost by oil spills , chemical spills ,coal mine collapse etc, which are far too common. Sure , nuclear has claimed lives in the last century . But you can't claim it's anywhere near the figure above .There have been only 5 major incidents in the last century . Only 2 resulted in an exclusion zone being placed. Fukushima was placed far too close to the ocean for it's safety. All the other plants were cold-war era facilities built for 1 purpose : making fuel for atomic weaponry. The faster they could produce plutonium the better , safety be damned. Modern reactors are much safer. Fun fact ; The Chernobyl power plant was actually active ,manned and producing power until the year 2000 when it was shut down. But considering you're putting your head in the sand already by ignoring the mounds of evidence pointing to human-caused climate change , i doubt you'll listen to me anyway.
  12. Multi-GPU no work

    650w is plenty for that
  13. I have 2 major gripes when it comes to electric cars . Both are related to batteries. -battery technology isn't there yet; batteries make up a significant portion of an E-vehicle's weight , they take a significant amount of time to charge and don't offer nearly enough energy density to even come close to a gas/diesel car's range . Current Li-ion batteries are also VERY expensive to build and harmful to the environment. -Lithium ISN'T a renewable resource. We want to use it in cars , but there might not be enough of it to replace petrol . And it's not like lithium is only used in vehicles. That lithium is taken away from people who legitimately need it to sat healthy ( lithium is used quite a lot in the medical industry) Basically , e-vehicles have one problem in my eyes : lithium-ion batteries . If we find an alternative ,cheaper, more energy dense material to store our energy , then they'll be able to fully surpass petrol cars technologically. Hydrogen , for example , is abundant and inexpensive ( produced through electrolysis ). It can be used as a fuel in a "traditional" combustion engine , and as such could be used in higher powered engines , such as planes , trucks and boats . It has a higher energy than even petrol. There's just the concern of safety when it comes to such high energy storage , but that could probably be remedied somehow.
  14. r9 290x won't boot , cold to touch.

    95C is the max operating temp for the 290x, so that's fine . It usually runs at less than 80 C though with the tri x cooler . but yes , it's possible other components are damaged , and that's what i suspect it is.
