  1. Sees Title - gives hug

  2. "my computer isn't working" Slaps monitor (or case, but particularly the monitor) mrw:
  3. It's the fact that CPUs based on the Core and Zen architectures are fundamentally different and require different electrical and computational components to accompany them. It's not as simple as software or programming, it's a matter of chipsets, of power delivery layouts, having to design an entire interconnect across which the CPUs to talk to one another, because you can't just have them operating separately and you can't use QPI or Infinity Fabric because one CPU won't support the other's interconnect. Then you've got the PCIe layouts to worry about, because those differ across platforms and with Intel, even across different lines of processors... I could go on, but hopefully this wall of text gives an idea why it would be not just impossible, but impractical even if it were possible. tl;dr, for several dozen reasons, that's just not how it works
  4. IIRC they have technically done this with DirectX12 or Vulkan testing in some of the early Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks... but that was over the PCI Express bus and it was not sanctioned by either company. But it is at least to some degree feasible. Crossing the streams with CPUs is not.
  5. Even if it were physically possible, neither Intel nor AMD would EVER do this. It would force their different architectures to compete on the same platform, which is just heresy as far as competition goes.
  6. Hiiiii

      How have you been?

      aight, you?

      I've been potatoes and cheese. Are YOU TOON ENOUGH? *Cue old ToonTown commercial.*

  7. It is, and it does. and it does work, if you jump through some hoops. At the moment it's just a stand for the card, but I do have plans to use it at some point.
  8. My laptop, my work machine (A Q6600, pity me, PITY ME /s), an IBM Model M keyboard, a random chinese mouse, two empty soda bottles, two 1080p monitors and lots of paper.
  9. Jankiest thing of all time, but if you can get the whitelist off of the wifi port, it totally works The drivers BSOD the machine if you boot it without the card installed though, so... that kinda puts a damper on the portability side of things...
  10. These are the most interesting things I have on my desk.
  11. This has more of a christmassy theme to it but even for generally nerdy gift ideas, it has some good ideas. Saved my bacon last year buying presents for my mother
  12. quick back-of-the-napkin math puts total idle heat output of my stuff at about 300W, when using both machines and ALL of my monitors. That'd be a pretty lackluster spaceheater but it warms the place up eventually.
  13. Currently my streaming computer is a dual E5-2670 workstation (because it's the only machine with which my capture card will initialize properly every time). Even at idle it kicks out a fair amount of heat. But what also helps is wearing more sweaters while doing the stream, because I'm not as comfortable in front of a camera so while talking and trying not to slip up, I get a bit hot under the collar. Warms me right up. Sometimes gets bad enough that I have to open a window and put a box fan blowing into my room The six monitors dumping 30W each into my bedroom help as well, I suppose
  14. The 7000 series AMD cards are totally fine. It's only after that that they started doing stuff like put more heatpipes on the heatsink that could touch the chip You haven't used it yet??
