  1. That's the crux of the issue. having one part of the CPU that has been carefully planned to avoid a specific attack doesn't mean other parts don't have unknown vulnerabilities.
  2. They're not saying "but but AMD" because they want to highlight AMD, They're pointing to AMD because they are countering the naive claims that AMD are immune to exploits. No hardware is immune to the discovery of exploits. All hardware will have a weak point somewhere, the only difference in the last few cases is that the Intel ones have been found.
  3. My quad core no HT is perfectly fine for 1080p gaming. I have it paired to a 570 and don't really feel I am missing out on something. I am certainly not a high end user but am far from the average user.

    No one likes DRM except the devs.

    So you have shit laptop, As I said before I have used shit hardware too, and lots of apps run slow and laggy on shit hardware. stop trying to pretend it's only MS stuff that has problems. No, I think people buy better hardware because all apps are laggy. The bit you are ignoring is that it's not solely MS apps that are shit on shit hardware. BS, There is an endless list of apps of all sizes that run shit on shit hardware. That's nice, you have an experience. You seem very insistent to dismiss other peoples experiences simply because you have one. Or as it seems you'd rather just get more technically and try to push the definition of shit hardware further to maintain your point. Not sure what you are trying to say. The conversation as I read it seems to be fairly logical. you tried to insinuate only MS apps are shit on low end hardware (as you are still doing) to justify calling this one a piece of shit. Or maybe instead of arguing about it, you could just accept that your single experience is not reflective of everyone or hard enough evidence to continue arguing all metro apps are shit. But if you need me to penis compare hardware so you can understand that one experience is not reflective of everyone's I have a pre core series celeron laptop that runs Vista Areo just fine, I have a N4000 that can't run FF without waiting literally minutes to load pages, I have an AMD A4 laptop that does the same on every browser and forget loading steam. I even have an i3 yoga that takes forever to load and save any thing on any program regardless of it's brand. Shit hardware is shit and different configurations will have different results. But to try and claim only MS apps are shit then defend it is silly.
  6. As far as I am aware AMD also doesn't pay as lucratively for exploits found in their products. Why would anyone concentrate on their products if there's no money in it? There is a lot of discussion about this guys desire to upgrade, but he hasn't even said why or what he does. I am on a 4 core i5 3rd gen. I have no issues playing any of the games I play, apart from the extra time it takes to render a video I would not notice very much in an upgrade. If this bloke is in the same position then even going all the way to HEDT is hardly going to get him noticeable results. It just seems a moot discussion as regardless of the on paper or specific situations where an upgrade does work we just don't know if his usages warrants an upgrade.

    What? you seriously want me to believe that only metro apps that are laggy on slow hardware? Sure. Having worked on slow hardware I can guarantee you a lot of apps run slow and laggy on low end hardware, if they didn't no one would buy better hardware. So you can't actually say either of those if you haven't used it because you have no idea. You speculating at best and projecting at worst. So clearly you just want to make shit posts about MS. If you don't like it don't use it, you aren't the only user in the world.

    As I said, unless you can compare a fair number of DRM AAA to non DRM AAA in terms of sales and account for piracy related content traits, then you can't just look at one game and claim piracy has no effect. You may as well try and claim the world is flat because if you hold a level up tot he horizon it is flat. How did you conclude that? not sure what you are trying to illustrate by saying that though.

    So one game sells a bit over 10M copies while other games with DRM sell in whole multiples of that? not really a convincing argument. Maybe if you could point to an array of AAA titles without DRM that outsell their DRM counterparts I would be willing to look further into it.

    Make believe. Even the heavily touted EU report into the cost of piracy was misplaced wishful thinking. There just isn't any evidence to back that position. Like it or not the whole institution of DRM came into being because people pirated. It has simply snow balled from there. No one likes DRM and it doesn't make people buy games so if it does nothing for sales revenue then there is literally no reason for it to exist. Game companies are in it for the money, nothing else.
  11. The biggest thing I hate about my government at the moment is that they spending millions trying to educate people not to abuse other people. They have been doing that for the last 20 years at least and nothing has changed. To most rational people that indicates simple education campaigns are not the solution and maybe they need to rethink the problem. I like our workplace laws, they elevate these issues straight out of the hands of the employer, however they are still open to abuse and people caught abusing the system should be held to the same account as those they wish to see found guilty, sadly they are not.
  12. Majority of walk outs and protests fall on def ears, protests are the same as prison hostage situations, if you curtail to one then everyone will protest over anything expecting the same outcome. If it doesn't already suit an agenda or profitable narrative then it is literally a waste of time.

    Everything is laggy on low end devices. Have you used it already? It sounds more like you have an issue with MS than paint.

    I think nearly everyone would prefer DRM free, but the reality is that's not going to happen unless you can find away to prevent piracy. Until sales figures show these companies that a negligible amount of sales are lost to piracy then it won't go away. Contrary to popular belief, no company intentional antagonizes their consumer base when there is no gain to it.
  15. They could just be one of those outcast weirdo lonely guys that just penned exactly why they have no friends. Either that or a scammer, 50/50 if you can guess.
  16. I was more like: 5000mAh battery? Oh goodness Notchless display? SWEET JESUS Headphones jack? AH WOW 649 price tag? ... oh ok You had me at "headphone jack"...

    How long do you use your pcs?

    Most wouldn't make 10 years without a GPU upgrade, but for 1080p gaming and decent results I am coming upto 8 years with only a single A$200 GPU upgrade. Total cost of my system over the last 8 years is now A$1000 or ($125 a year).

    Money talks, anything that will give the game companies a few more dollars will be in effect. Every thing from their own store fronts through loot boxes and DLC to DRM that squeezes a few more pennies out of the game overall. Money talks, You can bet your arse the major labels have considered what will give them the biggest return, investing millions in DRM or playing the DRM free card. It appears trying to be cool and hip with your customers doesn't net as much cash as Preventing them from stealing from you if only for a few weeks.

    HP Enterprise to Acquire Cray Inc for $1.3B

    I would say it's mutual, AMD having a product/policy that is worthy of a partnership and can be leveraged at this level of market is powerful for all parties involved.
  20. yep, there is a line between data collected to improve products in an honest manner, and data collected to on sell etc.

    Samsung announces 3nm MBCFET

    It's still what I would call within the expected realms of advancement. Every node change comes with new tech to overcome issues that the older tech can't. To be Honest, I now fully expect 3nm to be thing, I just don't expect it to be ground breaking.

    Samsung announces 3nm MBCFET

    This is good news, I wouldn't call it a game changer, in fact it's basically par for the course (they already are using 7nm for their phone processors and 5nm is due next year), but the good thing is that manufacturing that small isn't without new limitations so the announcement would indicate they are confident of work around's.
  23. The whole existence of exploits in these aspects of speculative execution (and many surrounding issues) has been around since god knows when. The problem is you don't stop production of a CPU architecture you've spent billions developing just because something thinks they can exploit it. It took until 2016 to actually do it. and even then there were mitigations.
  24. If history has anything to say, the mitigations for these exploits will likely have very minimal impact on home users anyway. Then on top of that there is no guarantee if you did buy Ryzen (like I am now), that similar exploits won't be discovered in a few years. Tech is so complex now that it is safer to assume everything has holes and the only thing in between discovering them and patching them is an unknown length of time.
  25. MS didn't insist on any of that, consumers demanded it. When their OS is running everything from nuclear submarines to high precision and extremely lean manufacturing plants, they couldn't afford to not support legacy. EDIT: in fact they tried to get away from it much earlier but that older tech is so entrenched in some services that companies elected to spend millions on further support rather than billions on upgrading everything.
