    That's a dual core CPU. Video encoding relies heavily on CPU and multicore performance.
     
    How much would the i7 6700 + Hyper 212 Black edition cost? You would probably be able to buy a Ryzen 1700 + new motherboard for less. The Ryzen would be the better buy as well as you would be able to overclock the CPU and you would have more CPUs to upgrade with later on if you wanted to. Also 8 cores 16 threads which will help a lot with video editing.

    It's not actually the IF that is slow or causing the latency increase it's the communication path and load/store steps when you go across CCXs. There is no direct path between cores on one CCX to another, it goes through L3 cache and that requires clock cycles to load and complete and then also access which is why there is such a huge jump from intra-CCX to inter-CCX latency.
     
    But it's not that bad nor necessarily the root cause of low gaming performance as current Intel HEDT processors use Mesh and that has double the latency of Ring, CCX to CCX is another 60% on top of that so there is still a significant difference. The difference between Ring and Mesh isn't that big even though there is twice the latency, there is a difference but much of that is clocks.

    Yes, but you need to have native driver support as well
     
    No, that is just a problem with NVIDIA drivers

    It's more like "They built an OS inside a virtual machine" but the ART today Java VM is a different thing from the past(Dalvik, the one before android 4), much comparable to native performance

    There are also some other good vm-based OS like Inferno/Plan9

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from leadeater in An Open Letter to Linus Tech Tips from The Passthrough Post   
    I do not completely agree with their statements at all except a few things they mentioned about compatibility, (Especially about AMD CPU's and NVDIA, I don't remember if they are using an AMD CPU) but what the hell does "Manjaro/Arch" is not supported mean?

    The entire process of passthrough just requires libvirt or QEMU and KVM + vfio, with vt-d support enabled in the bios which pretty much any linux distros can do

    And in Arch it's actually easier, in the AUR you can get the latest ovmf firmware from the AUR or even the linux-vfio package with ACS patches applied and eventually every software in there will be updated as a newer kernel with the latest vfio updates

    Also i don't even think they are using VirtIO, i don't know why they mentioned that, MacOS wouldn't even show the drive in that case, and my only concern about passthroughing raw nvme drives is about TRIM support is able to work fully (it could in theory)

    Also, doesn't matter if you passthrough Windows, Linux or MacOS the result will absolutely be the same, the only issue with NVIDIA drivers only on windows is the error 43 but just because of their driver force-checking if they are running in a VM

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from Totalschaden1997 in Trying to boot into Manjaro (Budgie) using a laptop with broken GPU   
    I would edit the boot parameters to disable the Radeon driver and forcing the Intel one for everything
     
    Try
    press E when grub is shown to edit boot parameters, add them after quiet splash separated with a space
     
    Try those boot parameters separately if putting all of them doesn't give any luck, like
     
    radeon.blacklist=1 i915.modeset=1
    then
    radeon.modeset=0 i915.modeset=1
     
    radeon.blacklist=1 only separately, same for modeset
     
    If none of those still gives any luck, try amdgpu instead of radeon like amdgpu.blacklist=1... etc following all the steps again

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from r2724r16 in So you know sleep paralysis? Is it actually your room you see or is it the dream world? I don’t get it   
    I still get it sometimes, I could basically open my eyes after a nightmare, but I'm not able to distinguish things and I start to hallucinate like you looked at the sun directly or some bright image, and you still see it when you look at something else, things that do not exist in the real world but that can get confused in a dark room, but once I'm able to move I quickly pick up the phone and just act as it's normal...I just deal with it.

    When I was a kid, I was totally able to control my dreams and wake up relatively quickly, now I can't but I'm not scared as I used to do

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from Totalschaden1997 in Which Linux Distro qualifies my needs?   
    Hi, Dell usually tends to have supported ACPI because of their XPS developer version which comes out with Ubuntu pre-installed, so you won't have any problems with the backlight, sleep, etc...

    As for external drawing screen tablet, usually depends from the availability of the drivers, I got a simple Huion for playing osu, and it works. Wacom should have native support too, its something you can check with Google.

    Davinci resolve has a native linux version and is easy to install, has a windows-like setup, but unlike windows, it doesn't support H264 video playback for some reason, so you will need to encode in HEVC or something else, I don't know the details

    Any DX11 game is likely to run, except the one with EAC which are something currently unsupported with wine atm which are currently in development with Valve for a solution

    As for customization, every linux distro lets you do that

    Speaking of safety, viruses are less prone to attack you due to linux being less used in desktops and also because of the package manager, as for hacks/vulnerabilities, as long you update your system regularly, there are no issues compared with WIndows 10 automatic updates, as for privacy, some distros like ubuntu tend to send a minimal quantity of data compared to Windows.

    Wine should be capable of running Windows programs, but has to be compatible. C# ones tend to be the most supported

    As for the distro, you may choose the one you like, that should have all you need, but if you are unsure choose the most updated one just to be sure to have more drivers for your peripherals you want to run, like Ubuntu 19.04 or PopOS, or Manjaro Linux (Which has a slighly harder learning curve as it's based in arch and is a bit less stable)

    You can try a desktop environment like KDE, since has widgets, so Kubuntu would be a choice, or Manjaro KDE, or PopOS with KDE. But GNOME offers customization like Windows too with something like DashToPanel

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from Arika S in Latest Windows 7 and 10 updates reportedly making systems run slower - Windows Defender a suspect   
    I'm not 100% sure, but my supposition since I don't know how they pick this data, and assuming it's via browser, they could have decided to include even undetected platforms as "unknown"

    Which can be obtainable by using browsers with some privacy extensions which presumably hides the user agent OS data, or again also by phone browsers who have "desktop mode" enabled, which again changes the user agent (which shows as a Desktop OS iOS or Android for example, so those may be put in there as well)

    That's the only way I could explain this

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from mr moose in April Windows update causes system to freeze or hang upon restart   
    Imo they are not that comparable

    Since this is exclusively an issue with Windows 3rd party drivers, and in those systems (BSD, MacOS and Linux) the driver release are completely different.

    First of all, the linux mainline kernel drivers require the code to complain to some standards (and for a reason) and FreeBSD follows a similar line, MacOS too

    Second, Windows drivers do not break ABI that frequently, while on those unix-systems drivers need to be recompiled for every kernel build (and linux drivers are open source, so pretty easy to port for eventual ABI changes thus causing not issues with that, but they still have to be recompiled anyway by design), that means windows drivers are retro compatible (and can ALSO be installed on later versions of the OS), and could be installed when they shouldn't

    The only to blame here are 3rd developers, and in a small quantity Microsoft, which imo should require stricter controls and a sort of certification for those drivers to be installed with quality standards, and stricter OS requirements (Not every windows 8 drivers will work on 10 and will just cause issues)

    Most AV software are heavily criticized for not following Microsoft recommendations for many things and violate many fundamental principles of 3rd party software kernel integration. This is why it's so common for AV software to break with updates and OS upgrades and why it's specifically mentioned, along with drivers, to make sure you have updated before doing such updates etc.
     
    Microsoft simply cannot test every application out there, no matter how popular it may be. Follow the proper guidelines and this won't happen and it's the responsibility of those companies to test and validate their software not Microsoft's. This sort of thing shouldn't happen with general updates like this.
     
    Edit:
    If I remember correctly Symantec caused a privileged execution exploit a few years back, Windows Defender recently too. If you want to exploit a system look at AV software, if a system is going to break it's probably AV software. It's the digital double edge sword.

    so in other word, linux doesn't really offer any much better performance in gaming and a pain in the arese to set up to do the things you need it to do so you're better off just sticking to what ever you're using unless you have bunch of spare time to trouble shoots stuff. 

    PS not really saying you are wrong, just talking from a perspective of a person who couldn't be bothered to switch to a whole new OS, hence my original comment

    Chunchunmaru_ reacted to Franck in Stackoverflow survey reveals growing interest in Linux   
    If we look at demographic of languages used most on the site we do not see much glimpse of windows only platform languages. With the big microsoft language called C# being third most talked languages on the platform the Linux side is very strong. To me this relate to my work experience where i have .Net devs and they do prefer Linux for daily use but they use the tool that make it easier for them to bring the client projects to term. I am not surprised by this number. It does match very good what my teams opinions are on the subject.
     
    Currently the top 20 most actives language/platforms are :
    Javascript : 1.79 million
    Java : 1.53 million
    C# : 1.30 million
    PHP : 1.27 million
    Android : 1.18 million
    Python : 1.14 million
    jQuery : 950k
    html : 816k
    C++ : 613k
    ios : 595k
    css : 581k
    mysql :  556k
    sql : 487k
    asp.net : 344k
    ruby : 305k
    C : 300k
     
    Javascript and Python skyrocketed in very-very short time. Except IOS, C# and asp.net they are all cross platform
    (note C# do not include .net core which is cross platform yes but is far from making a top 30 as it has its own section)
     
    Nice to see the top 20 is 85% cross platform. Dev can more than ever choose their favorite platform and are less and less tied to a specific one.
