  1. I'm the same, bought a 2 year. What gets me is that PIA went above and beyond taking out full page ads in the Ney York times during the whole Net Neutrality debacle, you'd think even if they were looking to sell, that they wouldn't sell to someone with such a shady history. It basically ruins the name for me entirely. As soon as the acquisition goes ahead I'll be shopping around.
  2. Was just on my way to post this. They cast a wide net with this, but were apparently only looking for about 600 machines?
  3. I'm really excited this is finally happening, but god damn that was a ridiculously long wait. I think Microsoft are making some moves to cosy up to PC and Steam. I honestly think all of this is a prelude to whatever ecosystem they think they can build for the next Xbox Generation, maybe something a lot more closely tied with PC, blurring the lines a bit.
  4. True, but as it's a new threat we've not really seen GPU side attacks like this before, and something to be aware of as there could be a period where anti-malware and spyware software isn't looking for this.
  5. Original article from UCR website Research paper: Rendered Insecure: GPU Side Channel Attacks are Practical Toms Hardware article about the vulnerability. From the University of California, Riverside article: So as of this time, the vulnerability is only known in Nvidia GPUs, however AMD and Intel have been notified to check. Nvidia will be releasing a patch, I just hope it doesn't require mitigation like the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerabilities did, however it seems a more straight forward fix.

  7. That new vulnerability that was found and the researchers recommended doing away with SMT and Hyper-threading as they are inherently a security risk. Watch as Intel starts to include it in their slides as a "feature".
  8. Out of interest, do you think it will actually take until Holidays 2019, I was hoping for a first half of the year for Ryzen on Zen2 7nm
  9. This drove me nuts. I got a 2500k about midway through it's lifecycle, and the performance jump was so much from the previous gen. Then Ivybridge came along and didn't offer that much of an upgrade and of course the infamous switch to toothpaste thermalpaste inside meant it was hotter. The next gen required a new motherboard and I kind of got landlocked in, and so on for the next 5 years, and what I really wanted was a 6 or more core processor with a good uplift, but Intel locked that behind HEDT requirements. Ryzen comes along and yes, suddenly Intel could find it in their hearts to offer 6 and 8 core processors to the main stream. Jumped on Ryzen as soon as it came out for so many reasons not least of which they promised AM4 would be compatible to 2020, and looking at how they managed to double core count on Threadripper2 while maintaining socket compatibility was really impressive.
  10. Aw I fucking love it so much. Inconsistent supplier indeed.
  11. I'm honestly more excited about technology and to see this battle over the next few years than I have been since Sandybridge was rocking the performance boat.
  12. Watching Lisa take a shot at Intel for that during the AMD Next Horizon event was quite vindicating. As time has gone on, the true reasoning of scaling and yields behind AMD's method has become clear. They're knocking it out the park at the moment. I do worry for them once Intel does get it's 10nm and beyond sorted out, but hopefully they've got the momentum now to keep going and not hit another brick wall like they did with Bulldozer. I really like the scalability of AMDs approach.
  13. Paramour: The only Exception - A special live version that happened when performing at the Reading Festival in 2014 when the sound system broke for about 10 minutes. Hayley was handed a working microphone, and it resulted in a really intimate performance with her and the band members sitting on the side of the stage. About half way through you can hear the crowd cheer as some of the sound came back online, from the video's perspective they still had a working line to the mix, it was just the crowd couldn't hear it.
