  1. Improving 4G speed

    No. Better antennas won't improve anything if you're already at the advertised speed.
  2. Improving 4G speed

    If you're near the tower, then you're more or less in an ideal spot. Any network problems are either due to congestion or server load and is beyond your control.
  3. Improving 4G speed

    Also note it's very rare to ever get the advertised speed. Especially with wireless networks, you'll be lucky to even approach it.
  4. Xbox one emulation for crossplay?

    The major problem with most emulator development is it's done by people who do not have access to development resources. Or at least, access to very little. When you're trying to replicate something without knowing the intimate details of it, it's going to be a long process before it gets anywhere near good enough. But again, the Xbox One is basically emulating a 360 on hardware that's really no better than a $400 tower from Walmart. At least from the CPU side. EDIT: Also I believe early Intel Macs had a PowerPC emulator that was good enough for most macOS software at the time.
  5. Xbox one emulation for crossplay?

    You wouldn't need to strictly emulate anything considering the XB1 is basically a PC with a custom version of Windows. All an "emulator" would need to do is trick the system software into running on some other x86 hardware, Hackintosh style. Plus the more I thought about it, the more modern emulators don't need to emulate the hardware in a manner of speaking. The XB1 isn't really emulating the 360, it's intercepting all the API calls 360 games make and translates them into native platform API calls. There is some "emulating" on the executable side, but it's probably dynamic recompiling.
  6. Computer hardware job(s)?

    Computer system building like that isn't really a lucrative career. If you want something that has more potential, an electronics technician, like someone who can prototype PCBs or do basic troubleshooting of issues, is better. I'm not inclined to believe it involves a lot of math because all of the design is done by an electrical engineer, but you need to at least be able to understand the basics of electronics. Basically if you think you can do repair work like what Techmoan or 8-Bit Guy does and then some, then you can be a technician.
  7. I feel like I'm losing a few brain cells, but at least I'm getting a laugh out of it.

    1. Cinnabar Sonar

      Cinnabar Sonar

      I'm out of the loop?  Dammit!

    2. Ashiella


      Lol, yeah, same.

  8. DRAM Buffer to SSD?

    I'm not seeing how this would be beneficial unless this NAS is connected to a 10 Gbps network and you have clients hammering it all the time.
  9. Assembly

    @KhakiHat, assembly language is nice to be aware of, but something you almost never touch in most software development. Unless you're working on a really basic 8-bit processor (like something from PIC), most microcontrollers are capable of being programmed in C. Heck, I worked on an MCU with like 10K of ROM and 0.5K of RAM in C. The only time you'd ever need to touch assembly is if you need highly tuned code or you're working in the MCU before it's initialized and jumped into the application itself.
  10. Help restoring old version of Windows

    The only way to roll back without reinstalling from an older ISO is if you upgraded. Otherwise you have to reinstall from an older ISO.
  11. In game screen scale setting vs inc. resolution

    Some games allow you to render the game internally at some resolution, but output it at the desired resolution. So you can ask the game to render at 1080p on your 2560x1440 screen and it'll simply scale it up. Alternatively if it offers it, you could ask the game to render it at 4K and scale it down (though at that point you should use DSR if you have NVIDIA)
  12. Looking for GPU which stays

    If it's 1440p, then a GTX 1080 Ti might last a few more years. If it's 1080p, then a GTX 1080 Ti will handily last 3-4 years. Though I'd imagine a 1070 Ti would also last at that resolution as well.
  13. If you're goal is to try to keep up with the hardware Joneses, then nothing's going to be worth it unless you can wipe your butt with $100 bills.
  14. Obviously Samsung tuned the shrink ray too far.
