  1. If that would've happened, I imagine news headlines would be abound about how the Internet was non-functional for a certain amount of time. And even so, "switching off the Internet connection" is as simple as unplugging the modem, or depending on the configuration, the router.
  2. Bear in mind the diagram says Defect Pixel Correction, not Dead Pixel Correction - while a Defect Pixel Correction could include a dead pixel, it's not exclusive to that.
  3. Which is a valid argument, but it's not inherently just about bandwidth.
  4. Outlast II is fucked up. 

  5. There's another factor to consider with HBM - space taken up. Not only is the bandwidth higher, but it's also integrated in with the GPU package, allowing for potentially shorter PCBs, or more robust, larger components to be placed on it.
  6. Partly. Hynix helped develop it too. NVIDIA is using HBM on their Tesla P100 cards, aren't they?
  7. I can only see that being useful for people that never have their side panels on, people with windows in their side panels, and the card being on a test bench. Professional overclockers(particularly the ones using exotic cooling) will see limited use for the display as it looks like it's mounted to the card's cooler. If they can easily dismount it, I might be swayed to a different viewpoint.
  8. From what I remember, Ivy Bridge was plagued with heat issues due to the switch to thermal compound.
  9. The Titan X Pascal was dubbed "Titan XP" due to the confusion with the previous TITAN X. NVIDIA afterwards released another Titan specifically named "Titan Xp."
  10. That's not the slot power. I'm fairly certain that's including slot power and auxiliary power. 300W of power through a slot is dangerous as that power is going to be coming from the 24-pin connector most likely where the wires can be destroyed, on top of the other components. With Tom's Hardware's quote in mind where they state it can support 300W when fully implemented on a motherboard, this doesn't mean a power supply's 24-pin connector will be able to take it. This is exactly why certain motherboards implement 6-pin PCIe connectors and molex connectors on the board to prevent the 24-pin connector from burning out when utilizing multiple video cards. Going back to the PCIe 2.0 spec, the slots are exactly the same. There's nothing different about them physically. If PCIe 1.1/1.0 couldn't handle anything higher than 75W, PCIe 2.0 nor 3.0 could support it. Supporting what I said, I have a quote from Wikipedia that confirms the 300W value, but still requiring auxiliary power connectors: Take it how you will. The only revision that might increase the power limitation further is PCIe 4.0, which is still 75W from the slot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#Power After the part where Tom's Hardware discusses the power increase, they specifically state this:
  11. PCIe allows for 75W maximum to be drawn for all three generations per slot.
  12. Airdroid. It may not be usable as a Mac OS X application, but you can use it through a web browser. Bear in mind that this is not available for iOS - only Android devices.
  13. Lack of SMT doesn't mean no threads. Threads are components of processes, and they're always there, and they're also required in order to understand why a 4770K would likely outperform a 4670K clock-for-clock despite the same number of cores and the same architecture. I think I understand why you would want to avoid the mention of threads, but ultimately IMO you are doing the recipient of the explanation a disservice.
  14. Your own post shows that Intel vs AMD in gaming can be circumstantial, and at the moment, there is no clear cut winner. For new builds, Ryzen might be the better option, but in terms of pure frame rate, you might be better served with an Intel CPU, and that might matter for people that game at 144Hz(such as me). The statement that anything below a 7700K is dead is nonsensical as many people(including me) are rolling on Core i5's, and I'm currently rolling on a 3570K, so I'm certainly a few generations behind. It's quite a stretch to state that anything below a 7700K is "dead" when different people have different requirements.
  15. The Core i5 can execute four threads. Each core can execute one thread. Hyper-threading(and AMD's version of SMT) adds another thread to that, enabling each core to execute two threads.
