Everything posted by lots of unexplainable lag

  1. So exactly why are port control computers and nuclear station monitoring computers connected to any network that has an internet connection in the first place? That shit should be locked behind 4 doors with separate keys, all with armed checkpoints. Same goes for hospital computers. The only way to access files on any of these systems should be on-site, and the computers connected to that shouldn't have an internet connection.
  2. can't wait for their retarded plans to backfire massively, this is a good start
  3. Have some motherboards yo... https://www.supermicro.nl/products/nfo/AMD_SP3.cfm?pg=MOBO
  4. Quite simple: optimising for one very specific platform is what makes these relatively low-end hardware machines run the games they run at right now, and these games don't have any settings menu to speak of whatsoever unlike their PC port counterparts. If Microsoft were to do this one could pop a game into a super low-powered office machine and it would run like crap, and Microsoft doesn't want the tech support calls from people like those who go "why cant dis pc run dis xbox game plz halp".
  5. That can either be a driver issue or a GPU not liking the clock speed/core voltage. What GPU are you running at what clocks?
  6. Can I just say that a 16c32t Epyc starts at like $650-$700? This bodes really well for Threadripper pricing. Like, REALLY well.
  7. Everything leading up to the Xen entry point (going into the main teleporter) is already released, and expanded upon in the last year or so with Surface Tension Uncut being the big update. Preordering means the game's not out yet, but Black Mesa is, just 2/3rds of it. You get about 7 hours of campaign gameplay with this, AND it has multiplayer (though it's a bit hard to find a populated server).
  8. https://forums.blackmesasource.com/index.php/Thread/30743-Summer-Update/ We start with the bad news: Better delaying it for maximum quality than rushing it out and have it be crappy and full of bugs. Good on ya'll. Now to the neat stuff. Image one. Image two: As stated: You know what, unlike pretty much every game studio ever, I believe these guys, mostly because I know how Source can look, and how earlier posted images of the game (long before they got onto Steam Greenlight) showed the exact same thing as in the game when you run it yourself. It's totally awesome, though I'd like to see some more green included in the ground and props. Xen will be huge. HUGE. They then talk about some technical stuff. One thing's worth mentioning: Source will also get a lighting overhaul adding deferred rendering bringing real-time lighting, shadows and god rays. Super sexy. Especially considering this is Source we're talking about. A 2004 engine (heavily modified though but still) with code going back to the Quake days. And it's pushing out this. Amazeballs. And it still looks realistic. Not overblown like current engines like to do. Subtle yet effective. They then talk about some color correction stuff and refined animations, but these are the main highlights I wanted to point out. So yeah. Good stuff's coming to our favourite remake.
  9. https://www.techpowerup.com/233966/amd-trims-prices-of-the-ryzen-7-1700-and-1700x Good stuff. A $50 price cut for the 1700X makes it a really good competitor to the 7700K (price wise) and the 1700 is now $10 cheaper as well. Not much, but still nice. Lowers the barrier to 8-core goodness just a bit more. Now with the top-dog 1800X at $469 AMD has a really solid line-up, though the 1800X could still be cheaper to better fit in with the other two.
  10. Good stuff.
  11. Only source I have is BitsAndChips' Twitter: He adds in one of the comments: That's pretty damn low if you ask me. Then again, it is multiple smaller dies making up the CPU unlike Intel who goes for one massive chip. And with yields of the 8-core Ryzen CPU apparently at 80% for all 8-core SKUs (meaning 6- and 4-core CPUs are perfectly functioning 8-core dies with functioning cores cut off) this allows AMD to be very, very aggressive with pricing. All good stuff. But then again, one massive bastard of a rumour. Nothing concrete at all.
  12. Yup. When Apple introduced the A7 back in 2013 it shook the industry, caught sleeping Qualcomm management off-guard and gave iPhone 5S users basically free performance. Now everybody's on 64-bit CPUs.
  13. Gimme a headphone jack.
  14. Quality shitpost. GG.
  15. If it makes me able to buy an RX580 at normal price without having to also wait for it for 4 weeks then go for it.
  16. Remember, that just gets you an 8-core. You can sell your arm, leg, kids and house for the 18-core. Also, that's one hell of an underclock on the Vega GPU in here if it only does 22 TFLOPs HP when the stock version AMD has themselves does 25 TFLOPs.
  17. Good luck getting any cooling done ever. Whaddaya think's in heatpipes? Anyway, cool tech, but by the time this will arrive I'll be 80 years old. As how it always goes with cool tech, someone thinks of a cool idea but then forgets to think about a cost efficient and fast way to mass produce it.
  18. Linus' video holds true here. Intel was ready to do something incremental again and boom, AMD comes along and rips Intel a new one. Now we have Threadripper with the only difference between SKUs being clockspeed and core count while the rest stays the same.
  19. Good luck. Don't think there's any room left on the board for anything once you slap the massive socket on an ITX board.
  20. Sauce from ASRock themselves: http://www.asrock.com/news/index.asp?ID=3625 The marketing blurb: First the ultimate X299 board: The Fatal1ty X299 Professional Gaming i9 (pretty much confirming an Intel Core i9 lineup coming). Built-in 10 GBit LAN on the back, all the PCIe 3.0 X16 slots, 3 M.2 slots all of which are full PCIe 3.0 4x slots, and of course all the RGB. Others are also on their merry way, including the X299 Taichi. Next, the very impressive and super puny but oh my god powerful X299E-ITX/AC. ITX X299 board, 4 SO-DIMM DDR4 slots, wireless AC WiFi, 2 gigabit Intel LAN ports, 3 (yes, 3) M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 slots, the lot. Oh, and the socket itself is about 1/4th the size of the entire flippin' board. On to something else that's ridiculous: the H110 Pro BTC+. An H110 board solely for mining bitcoin with PCIe 3.0 1x cards. This has 12 of them (alongside a full sized X16 slot). Finally here's the first of 2 AM4 ITX boards. This one is the Fatal1ty X370 Gaming-ITX/ac. AC WiFi, (what seems like) a 6-phase power setup, Dual HDMI ports, Intel Gigabit LAN, the lot, an M.2 slot on the back. The other one is pretty much the same (as far as I can tell from the press release), but with the B350 chipset (and logically a lesser VRM setup as we've seen with all other B350 boards, big or small). So yeah. Maybe there's more to come, but at least I'm exited about AM4 on ITX. But have to say, that X299 ITX board is impressive as fuck. No word so far on AMD's X399 platform. Maybe later, or maybe it'll be an entirely separate event later in June/July.
  21. Which bodes well for those prices, actually. If AMD wants to have a low point of entry to 10 and 12-core CPUs then you don't want to price them too closely to consumer Ryzen because it'd cannibalise sales from either Ryzen (more powerful option isn't much more expensive) or Threadripper (slightly lower multi-core performance for a lot less money).
  22. Not for the people who simply don't like/want overclocking who don't mind paying the premium for a better chip out of the box.
  23. Why so many 12c options?
  24. What makes ink so bloody expensive in the first place? Replace it with water with food colouring if that's more your thing anyway.
