    pas008 got a reaction from slippers_ in Tesla pause German gigafactory construction after environmentalists protest cutting trees   
    you have a source for this
     
    could is a very weak word and
    and if they are more efficient and less wasteful that is a step in the right direction
    so everyone should just continue to use less efficient and more wasteful because we shouldnt go in the right direction?

    everyone just looks at cpus
    intel is in alot
    ai, storage, memory, quantum, networking, graphics(discreet soon) data centers etc etc
     
    they really dont need luck
    on their cpu side they can just do the gluing again like before, but now we might be see gluing with stacking

    always use LGS on that mouse, it always works for me. but i the battery issue is new, my G602 works perfectly fine on 2 AA batteries (just regular alkaline) works for months.

    pas008 reacted to dalekphalm in Intel Buying Back Stocks to Hide Declining Growth   
    I don't think that's correct - the company itself would continue to hold those shares. Most companies buy back shares so that they can get a larger share of the controlling votes (often but not always as a precursor to taking the company private).
     
    There would be literally no point to buy back shares if the share just disappeared and the company didn't get anything out of it.
     
    EDIT:
    https://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/05/retiredstock.asp
    A company can buy back and then "retire" (cancel) the shares - but it doesn't have it. It can just hold onto them, and issue them back onto the stock market at a later date. Or it can issue them privately to employees, etc, in various forms.

    streaming is the future
    hence hulu,netflix,vudu,disney, etc etc
    why arent they failing
    media streaming seems to be preferred over owning these days
    and considering next gen of people they dont care to own things

    Benefits of game streaming to developers/publishers...
    Kills Piracy
    Kills Modding
    Kills buyers actually owning a product
    Kills the second hand game market
    Generates a steady and guaranteed income stream
    Means they can sell a cheap dumb box instead of an expensive one
     
    Benefits of game streaming to consumers...
    Means users with less powerful hardware can still play
     
    OFC they're pushing this, its literally everything they've ever wanted rolled in bank notes.

    pas008 reacted to ARikozuM in Modemn't - Apple, Broadcom lose $1.1 billion lawsuit for patent infringement   
    The burden of proof is vastly higher for a company like Apple than it is for Joe Schmo. 
     
    You shouldn't compare a company with a 1/4 billion dollars worth of legal consultants with the average person. Any judge would know the difference in case law and legal proceedings.

    pas008 reacted to mr moose in Modemn't - Apple, Broadcom lose $1.1 billion lawsuit for patent infringement   
    As has been explained, liability can easily it be shifted with the appropriate paper work.  We know nothing about the case other than the courts decided apple was guilty. I think one of the biggest mistakes this forum makes when addressing issues of this nature or of any legal matter, is that they assume false equivalencies. I.E just because company A only sues one of 4 companies doesn't mean the suit is merely a money grab.  There are many conditions that effect how these suits go ahead.  In this caser going after apple might be setting the stage to then go after broadcom with which a win might enable them to go after Intel.   Or conversely if they went after a harder case and lost they might lose the ability to go after the main culprit.
     
     
    TL:DU  there is too much in this case we don't understand in order to draw such conclusions.  From the evidence/court outcome we have,  apple did something wrong and it remains to be seen if broadcom did.

    pas008 reacted to mr moose in Modemn't - Apple, Broadcom lose $1.1 billion lawsuit for patent infringement   
    It doesn't matter who made the chips if apple knowingly sold them with infringing product they are just as liable.  It's like selling counterfeit DVD's then trying to argue "I didn't make the dvd's I just sold them"  you are still guilty.

    2bn my ass they lose out on their ecosystem money
     
    this should be quoted also
     
    Apple, along with 10 other leading tech giants such as Nokia and Samsung, signed a memorandum of understanding in 2009.
    They pledged to provide micro-USB compatible chargers for consumers.
    However, Apple took advantage of a loophole that allowed manufacturers to continue using their own chargers if they offered an adaptor.
    Then, in 2014, the EU passed the Radio Equipment Directive, which called for a "renewed effort to develop a common charger".
    Apple insisted that its slimmer devices would be unable to fit the then-new USB-C technology, and it claimed it would cost up to $2bn (£1.53bn) to meet the desired standard.

    pas008 reacted to WereCatf in What Type Of Keyboard Is Best For Programming   
    Literally the best keyboard for you is the one that you feel most comfortable with. No one else can tell you what keyboard is or isn't best for you. Me, I use a Logitech G710 and while the noise is somewhat annoying, I love the feel of it and it's so far the best keyboard I've ever used.

    Cheapest stuff from the used market would do, I'd personally go with a GTX 750 ti at most because they're fairly inexpensive and draw very little power. Makes a neat cheapo 1080p card.

    pas008 reacted to Tristerin in 3800X is hot   
    Idling at 60 isn't good, and is indicative of airflow issues, or bad mount pressure.  Airflow issue could be due to types of fans, availability of their placement, and or lack of airflow in general from the case.  I only purchase cases with high airflow for this reason.

    pas008 reacted to AngryBeaver in Ryzen 4000 and X670 scheduled for late 2020   
    There is much more to a powerful chip than just clock speed.
     
    If for example AMD gets that 10-15% IPC improvement they keep talking about then they don't need any higher clock speeds.
     
    Remember a cores power comes down to frequency X IPC. 
     
    Just random example.
     
    If you have a chip that is 5ghz, but with 1 ipc. That is 5ghz of computer power
     
    If you have a 4.5ghz chip with 1.2 ipc then that is 5.4ghz worth of compute power.
     
    So there is more to ST performance than just clocks.
     
    The ST performance wouldn't even be as relevant if not for DX draw calls still being very much single threaded. When that changes the entire game changes.

    pas008 reacted to amelius in Asus ROG Zenith Extreme doesn't think it needs to be compatible with RTX 2080Ti's BUYERS BEWARE   
    I've never had screen tearing issues, nor stuttering, nor game not launching. I've had a few times where performance games weren't great, but supposedly the new nvlink sli bridge helps with that a lot and most games scale at least 50%, which is good enough for me. 
    Is it cost effective? Only if you can't upgrade any further. given how my system's specs are
    TR 2990WX, Titan V, 2x 2080Ti, i really don't have anywhere else to make performance gains.
