    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Kroon in Please go back to 16:9 (Poll added)   
    My phone has the option to zoom in, my TV does not. 16:9 was better. 
     
    Also phone screen ratios are still changing, I think Samsung is going to 19.5:9 or something like that with the next models with the new Infinity O displays. 18:9 is not a standard. 16:9 is.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Mutoh in What do people hate about Apple?   
    To put it bluntly I don't feel like they value their customers. I think OS lock in and iOS being more important has led them to just take Mac customers for granted.
     
    I see this in how they do not support their products, routinely denying issues, like with the terrible butterfly keyboards failing, and then them adding a dust filter with the next generation, but won't fess up the reason was to fix the dust breaking the keyboard. 
     
    I also see it in the lack of options in the Mac space. Mac Mini abandoned for years. Mac Pro abandoned for years. MacBook Pro reduced to a machine no longer really suitable for pro work. As the LTT video pointed out, you can't even trust in being able to recover your data if your logic board goes out. In a pro machine. That's insane!
     
    Then you have the pricing. Why does the entry level MacBook Pro cost $2400 to get a 15 inch? To move up 2 inches in display size your base cost increases by $1100. And even then, that $15 inch is so underspec'd compared to PC makers products. 1/2 the ram, 1/4 the storage of a Dell XPS15. 
     
    Limited options, all overpriced.

    I am quite enjoying this drama. I would watch a Riley GPU review. Especially if he ends up doing it on Gamer's Nexus to spite Linus.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from pinksnowbirdie in Best country for immigration?   
    1. Is so unrealistic to happen to you. If you look at the numbers, you are more likely to die from a train.
    2. Is a State by State thing, Federal taxes aren't that bad. Especially compared to a lot of Western countries.
    3. Also a State by State thing. Go to Texas, affordable housing, low taxes. Go to California, unaffordable housing, insane taxes.
     
    I think it would be smarter to figure out how you want to make your living, and which country will facilitate that, and will actually let you in.

    Chett_Manly reacted to AlexTheGreatish in Let Riley Review GPUs - a Petition   
    August 31st, 2018 - when Riley "@RILEYISMYNAME" Murdock's lifelong dream died.
     
    As a child Riley Murdock would watched at first sprites, and then polygons forming on the screen before him in amazement, thinking that one day he might be able to test the bleeding edge of graphical technology.  Over the years Murdock has slowly positioned himself at the forefront of technology news, using his good looks and charming awkwardness to not just enchant audiences, but also to penetrate the inner circle of Linus Media Group, potentially giving him some of the hands-on experience with the latest and greatest in graphical technology, although sadly it was not meant to be. 
     
    The stage was finally set, Murdock was in the right place, and with Nvidia launching the first GPUs capable of Real Time Ray Tracing (RTX), the time was right too.  For those not familiar with RTX, it is considered the greatest graphical leap in recent history, with Tom's Hardware's esteemed Editor in Chief saying "If these cards deliver even half of what they promise, you won't want to settle for last-gen technology" and "Just Buy It". As you can imagine Murdock was bursting with glee, going as far to say "What's the point of living without Ray Tracing", and in front of a massive live audience, Murdock finally mustered up the courage to ask permission to review this unprecedented new technology, finally realizing his life's purpose.
     
    Moments later though, tragedy struck. Murdock's request was carelessly shot down by Linus Sebastian, @LinusTech (claimed CEO of Linus Media Group, but we all know he's simultaneously paid by Intel, AMD and Nvidia). Imagine a balloon popping in deep space - complete silence - as everything this poor balloon has ever known gets cast out into the void, eternally scattering into the universe, forever forgotten - the look on Murdock's face was like that, times ten.
    But it doesn't need to be this way, we can make a change.  Sign this petition, let Linus know that we won't stand for his callous disregard for others feelings, and that we believe that Riley Murdock will do an incredible job reviewing graphics cards.  It's not too late people, if we band together we can defeat the evil Linus, and once again give Murdock a reason to be alive.
     
    Since the incident, Murdock has said "When I'm 99 years old and lying on my deathbed, I'll think back and say, 'Oh my gosh, I didn't have Ray Tracing for 6 months'", but with your help, he can instead lie on his deathbed in peace, please sign the petition.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from J.b091 in "Leaked" 2080 benchmark   
    The pricing is outrageous, its offering worse performance per dollar!
     
    I can get a 1080Ti off NewEgg for $650 that is only 6% slower than the $800 founders edition 2080. 6% faster than a 1080Ti, and that is Overclocked, and it costs  ~20% more.
     
    We actually had size-able drop in performance per dollar here. All in exchange for features which while cutting edge clearly are not ready for primetime if you cannot play above 1080 60 with them on. 
     
    Part of me really wants to go in on a 2080Ti, so I can take full advantage of my new ultrawide monitor, get that full 120 fps at 3440x1440 on Ultra. Yet part of me says that Nvidia is price gouging, and F#$% That!

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Hi P in What's so good about 7nm?   
    Basically you can fit more transistors in the same space because they are smaller. 
     
    At 16nm, there are 12 billion transistors in a 1080ti.
    At 28nm there was 8 billion in the 980ti
     
    This increase in transistors is what drives power/performance improvements.

    Chett_Manly reacted to Fullmental in Banned from the Internet - Current Lawsuit could force ISPs to ban users   
    Is a car manufacturer or dealer responsible if a car buyer uses said car to commit a crime?
     
    Is a state DOT responsible if a car runs a pedestrian over on their roads?
     
    Is the electric company responsible if their customers use electricity to run a server that distributes copyrighted material?
     
    Why should an ISP be responsible for their customers using the internet to do something illegal? It's completely stupid that this has even made it to court, much less be seriously considered as a possible outcome. Is the RIAA going to foot the bill for this kind of monitoring, or are they just going to expect the rest of us to pay for it in higher internet service costs? As if our internet costs in the US weren't high enough already...

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Mutoh in Reddit turns political in regards with censorship   
    There is a lot of people on Reddit, and the company itself, who stood up for net neutrality, yet while they demand that ISPs treat all content coming across their networks neutrally and fairly, here they are taking it upon themselves to censor content they dislike, to remove people they disagree with. They think Comcast should have to carry The New York Times, yet they should not have to allow a news post they dislike. I find it highly hypocritical.
     
    The internet, social media, is a space people use to discuss things publicly. We should have the same rights in it as the public space in the physical world. We should not allow a handful of corporations that are practical monopolies to dictate what is acceptable conversation.

    Wouldn't the solution then be to make discrimination based on race illegal, not to make it illegal for some races who get protected class status. What protected status exists that cannot be universalized based on the underlying principle that led to having that protected status?

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from FunkmastaFlex in Buy a 1080 ti strix for 400 usd or wait for a 2080?   
    I have a 1080, I found it adequate for the 2560x1440 your monitor has. So the Ti should be great. I'd strongly consider it, as I highly doubt the 2080 won't offer worse performance per dollar, and its a question of if you need that extra performance for the cost.
