  1. I think our best hopes for performance here have to do with hyperthreading potentially being enabled on more of these CPUs. IPC won’t change and frequency should barely change, so we’re pretty much stuck with hyperthreading to improve the value proposition on lower end CPUs, I think. So, even if it’s boring for enthusiasts, it might still be worthwhile for system builders.
  2. RX 580 = GTX 1650 Super > RX 570 > GTX 1650 So what you get really depends on local prices and availability, but they're all fairly good except GTX 1650. GTX 1650 is trash. You could also look at used RX 470/570 or RX 480/580.
  3. Nintendo struggling with online services the rest of the industry figured out a decade ago. Who would have thought it?
  4. First you have to sell off tiny parts of yourself to thousands of strangers.
  5. It's hard to say anything about new cards right now. I doubt they'll arrive prior to Computex (June 2 - June 6) and they might not actually launch until considerably after Computex, like in September or later. It's also pretty likely that only the high end (like 3080 Ti and 3080) will launch at first, with lower end cards like 3060 launching sometime later. Potentially into 2021. Their specs and performance are unknown. 2060 Super is a pretty good GPU right now. AMD's RX 5700 XT handily beats it in gaming performance, but Nvidia has advantages like the NVENC encoder.
  6. Yes, but it’s a waste of money (electricity) considering there’s not any real use for the second GPU. You can already run 4 monitors off a GTX 1080 on its own, and PhysX is a joke.
  7. You only need a single GPU to do that.
  8. This doesn't have anything to do with vagueness at all. What Broadcom and Apple were arguing was that Caltech's patent was obvious, i.e., it's an obvious extension of prior work by ECC researchers in the 1990s and therefore invalid as a patent. That argument was rejected by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. I'm not a patent lawyer but it's pretty clear Broadcom/Apple were pretty much doomed at that point, because 802.11n and 802.11ac clearly implement IRA codes as patented by Caltech. A federal jury found in Caltech's favor there.
  9. America, the only place in the world where patents exist.
  10. Only with the right makeup. Juggalo makeup works because it redefines your jawline and messes with the way software recognizes your face shape. The makeup in the bottom left corner did not do that.
  11. Luckily, there's an easy solution to defeat facial recognition software, even if someone else happens to photograph you in public. Just become a Juggalo.
  12. This is bad, regardless of who’s doing it.
  13. I’d prefer even a budget Ryzen 1600 AF system over that, personally, but the Xeon system will be competitive or even slightly better in certain workloads. LTT recently did a video on a similar CPU situation.
  14. That’s not much of a distinction. Wait for 10700k to be out and reviewed before asking how the specs compare. Those specs, especially with regards to actual performance benchmarks and pricing, are all speculative. These threads pop up every time a product is rumored, and they’re never very helpful for anyone.
  15. Wait for the CPU to be released before asking about if it's a good purchase, this isn't hard.
