    mvitkun got a reaction from NumLock21 in eVGA old video card trade in contest   
    I'm confused.
    They say you get 1,000 of their digital currency, which according to this page is worth 1,000 of whatever your local currency is.
    But in the official terms and conditions they say 
     
    So each grand prize is 1,000 EVGA Bucks.......and 1,000 EVGA Bucks = 1,000 in your local currency......and yet somehow 1,000 in your local currency also equals 1.00 USD?

    mvitkun reacted to Rupe in UK Gambling Commission says children as young as 11 are getting into skin gambling   
    I think the biggest reason why it's dangerous is that you can get some cheap skins for just playing the game and not spending a penny. This can then act as a gateway where suddenly the kid decides they quite liked gambling their meagre inventory. Perhaps they ask their parents for steam gift cards for birthdays/christmas so they can continue to gamble skins. This addiction can eventiually lead to more sinisters outcomes such as kids taking their parents credit cards.
    But the point is to get started not a penny needs to be spent, and their is a culture inside of CSGO when you hear people talk almost like its a status symbol to have a really good inventory of skins which for young kids can be a serious draw

    damn, beat me to it.
    this does somewhat prove Linus's view (and mine too) that 1440p displays on stuff like smartphones are useless, because nobody can distinguish the difference anyway.
    720p is a bit low, but the fact is that nobody noticed until now, so

    mvitkun got a reaction from themaniac in [US] [WALMART] 24in 144hz VA Curved Freesync Monitor 100$ Free Shipping   
    Correct me if I'm wrong, there are multiple different ED242QR models, I think the wi is the 75hz one while Abidpx is the 144hz.
     
    Acer's own site is less than clear on this, you can find two different models of the ED242QR but none with the wi suffix.

    mvitkun reacted to GoodBytes in Nvidia CEO - Moore's Law is dead; GPUs to replace CPUs   
    Context people context. As people points out, it is the context of mass processing that can be paralyzed. GPUs SUCKS at doing logic. An 'if condition' (if this, do that, else do this) is taxing for a GPU. Each SMs or CUDA cores, doesn't have its own set of logic circuit. That is currently impossible to add, else the GPU would be easily as big as an entire wafer of chips. Imagine the mass cooling needed, let alone production cost.

    mvitkun reacted to LAwLz in LG's newest Phone has a serious branding problem   
    LG have had their logo at the bottom for several generations. It's not like they have moved their own logo to make room for B&O. It's just that they have added another logo in a spot that has been left blank on all their other phones.
     
    This seems like a lot of fuss about nothing.

    mvitkun reacted to Misanthrope in Which GPU you have for video rendering doesn't matter as long as you have one   
    This is an important point: From what I've seen there's a wide range of inconsistencies among different editing software. This basically translates to replace "Video Editing Workstation" with "Premiere Workstation", "Vegas Workstation" "Final Cut Workstation" "Hitfilm Workstation" etc.
     
    Basically you can optimize the build for the specific software you'll be using. Sounds like a chore to me but when you start looking into professional software in general this is usually the way it goes: there's similar decisions to be made when building servers for example that are task specific, software specific even software version specific.

    mvitkun reacted to Flavio hc 16 in [Possibly fake] AMD losing 100+ dollars on every vega sold   
    guys we all know why this happened:
    When nvidia released the gtx 1080 at 700$ that would have been great for amd, they also had a planned release for end 2016/start 2017. We have seen all the gpu of the 10xx series get higher priced than the 9xx series. So in amd mind they were: we are going to sell the rx 56 for 450/500$ and the rx 64 for 600/650$ and that would be a great bargain, especially considering the fact that you can use freesync and they are great for gpgpu stuff.
    Then happened something that nobody was expecting: when you could smell that the 1080ti was in the air, at the start of the year, everyone (myself included) could have betted his own mother that the 1080ti was going to launch at 850/900$ so even if Nvidia would have had the "gpu king", but that would have been still ok for amd, because they would have the best performance/dollar on the high end market (not the enthusiast), BUT then nvidia slashed the price of the 1080/1070 and launched the 1080ti at 700$, so Amd did find itself in a tight spot

    Holy shit that's a dick move. You don't put out big slides with "new king under 500 dollars!", make all reviewers base their price:performance numbers on a 500 dollar cost, and say "oh the 500 dollar price was just a rebate which has now expired".
