  1. I didn't ask for a topper. You've made your opinion known, repeatedly. I get it. I tried to nicely nudge things to hear from other people so I'll be more blunt, just because you don't curse or flail around doesn't mean that you aren't being just as rude as those that do. My main curiosity in starting this thread has been resolved on another forum which had a more interesting assortment of discourse and actually provided some backing (in related, if not exactly on point) in the form of citations that more clearly explore things (in part, proving part of your point better then you ever did). I'm no longer following this thread. Leave your topper comment and be done with it.
  2. Better is not the same as different. I specifically said different for a reason. Using a non-tech example, a box that one hamburger is sold in vs another is not superior, it's just different and it tends to happen the more mature a market gets because eventually you end up being able to only differentiate and not necessarily with a more superior product but with a different one. This is a world filled with SD card arrays in PCIe slots and easy bake ovens in 5.25 inch bays. Absolute definite performance is not the only metric to measure and even if the tech is absolutely bogus (which I'm still looking for a citation on for anyone wanting to pop in with an offer) Linus made an entire series about "shit manufacturers say" where half of the time the tech is laughably found to be vapor ware, which still doesn't stop people from spending millions on building out half of these things and months/years spent making them. "powered by RTX" would absolutely be a draw to a headset, regardless of the validity of the claim to a technical point and it would be fun seeing it be the case regardless. Let it not be forgotten that Redbull tastes like garbage and five hour energy is arguably nearly no better then coffee (https://ww1.prweb.com/prfiles/2013/06/14/10836595/EnergyDrinkPoster_APS_05262013.pdf forgive me for being able to find only a research poster, studies in this area are shockingly spare to what I'm used to and the other one I found was behind a paywall to a site I have no access to). So I look forward to seeing what actually happens in the next half decade or so. Good day.
  3. My main concern is with that 'obvious' word. In my normal work, I like to see data (normal with a citation) to demonstrate a point in a technical domain (especially in an area such as audio tech and, thankfully, test rigs for such things are all but standardized and it would be an interesting thing to see some industry data in a working prototype, even if just for shits and giggles, but even if it weren't about the technical aspects, anyone with an understanding of basic economics would know that even if the tech was definitely inferior, it's still a differentiation which, in a mature market with lots of competitors and price competition, makes for a great way to get some slice of the pie, sorta like an extra fancy way of setting up one's packaging. Besides, I'm the kind of person that likes records. The sheer novel nature of this would be interesting to see.
  4. Great, comparisons have already been made! Can you point me to the source so i can see the numbers to figure out the magnitude of the gap in performance?
  5. Just curious if anyone else immediately thought of active noise canceling headphones when they saw the effectiveness of RTX Voice. Any news on if/when someone's going to license the tech for their headsets?
  6. Anyone care to guess the number of users for minecraft then? Let's assume compatibility and simply focus on bottlenecks of traditional sorts (ram, ethernet speed, cpu, etc.)
  7. I've done screen casting from my PC to my television on a Raspberry Pi 3 and it barely ate up anything.
  8. I think you'll be in for a real treat then. Here's a tutorial for how to do it: https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-install-minecraft-server-on-raspberry-pi/ . The question is, what's the limit?
  9. I haven't seen this answered for the latest generation of Raspberry Pi (Raspberry Pi 4). How many people could you reasonably host on a server using it? Website hosting? Minecraft? Web app? What would the first bottleneck be? Let's assume the 4GB version here and connection through Ethernet for internet. I'm well aware of the difficulty in figuring this out without more specific details, but collective guessing is more accurate then individual guessing and this data IS useful to have as a placeholder so I'm asking.
  10. Thanks for the suggestion. I get my hands on A,B, and E versions of those consoles from time to time and flip them. Occasionally they're missing the lid so i needed some better search terms then I currently had to look them up to grab'em. I'm aware they don't sell them new. 3D printing them isn't really an option (for plastic physics reasons I'm not going to get into) but I needed the term/s to look under for second hand purchases.
  11. I'm having a hard time finding the name for the piece that covers the left side of the Playstation 3 Phat console. Does anyone know what that's called and where I can buy one or ten? Thanks in advance.
  12. I'm looking to get a 7559 for someone, but their workload needs a more color accurate panel then the one native to it. Are there any alternatives to the normal panel on it and, if so, what are they? Thanks for any help you can give.
  13. Well it does say on the back, "no value until activated by register" and since it is encased in plastic...well. Regardless, I'm more interested in what EXACTLY it is. This is my issue. I almost don't want to unwrap it and tinker with it at least until I know that much.
  14. I can't find this particular version of Pokemon gold version packaging anywhere online. Is has a download code strip on the back so it isn't one of those store cards that you take up to the counter and they print something on your receipt or send an email, but I can't find anything like it on ebay or on google images. They're an untouched stack of ten. Any help?
  15. I have no idea what this mount style is. Does anyone have the answer?
