Recommended Posts

Yeeeees, 4-way SLI. And an external PSU.


Any unknown button should be pressed even number of times.

Yeah, but its still going to be priced much higher than desktop hardware and you cant re-use hardware, when something gets too old you'll have to replace the whole damn thing (certain parts can be switched), im sticking with desktop gaming ;)

It's still pointless with where battery technology is at.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Here's the big thing- IF it's in any way swappable in the future with maybe itx or reference cards with some trickery. 


muh specs 

Gaming and HTPC (reparations)- ASUS 1080, MSI X99A SLI Plus, 5820k- 4.5GHz @ 1.25v, asetek based 360mm AIO, RM 1000x, 16GB memory, 750D with front USB 2.0 replaced with 3.0  ports, 2 250GB 850 EVOs in Raid 0 (why not, only has games on it), some hard drives

Screens- Acer preditor XB241H (1080p, 144Hz Gsync), LG 1080p ultrawide, (all mounted) directly wired to TV in other room

Stuff- k70 with reds, steel series rival, g13, full desk covering mouse mat

All parts black

Workstation(desk)- 3770k, 970 reference, 16GB of some crucial memory, a motherboard of some kind I don't remember, Micomsoft SC-512N1-L/DVI, CM Storm Trooper (It's got a handle, can you handle that?), 240mm Asetek based AIO, Crucial M550 256GB (upgrade soon), some hard drives, disc drives, and hot swap bays

Screens- 3  ASUS VN248H-P IPS 1080p screens mounted on a stand, some old tv on the wall above it. 

Stuff- Epicgear defiant (solderless swappable switches), g600, moutned mic and other stuff. 

Laptop docking area- 2 1440p korean monitors mounted, one AHVA matte, one samsung PLS gloss (very annoying, yes). Trashy Razer blackwidow chroma...I mean like the J key doesn't click anymore. I got a model M i use on it to, but its time for a new keyboard. Some edgy Utechsmart mouse similar to g600. Hooked to laptop dock for both of my dell precision laptops. (not only docking area)

Shelf- i7-2600 non-k (has vt-d), 380t, some ASUS sandy itx board, intel quad nic. Currently hosts shared files, setting up as pfsense box in VM. Also acts as spare gaming PC with a 580 or whatever someone brings. Hooked into laptop dock area via usb switch

Yes.  I have a GTX 980M and if you're not plugged into the wall you're either using nVidia Battery Boost tool to detune the 980M or just flipping over to the integrated Intel graphics since honestly they're better at saving power.  It's not even a battery life issue, it's an issue that the battery wattage just can't feed the card.

I understand the embargo thingy, but...

 

I expected more than a 3 minutes video for a daily video.

 

yeah 3 mins and 43 secs of video is kinda dissapointing if you ask me, I understand they have to follow rules etc, but without outro/intro it's 3mins or less video, which is short even for things like techquickie, this just feels as quite a let down.

altiough I do know the video was done within a 48H time span, considering the tweets of luke and edzel(?) being in LA. This would be more like a bonus if you ask me, this would be a great unexpected, unannounced video release considering how short it is, but for the full vid? hmmm...


May the light have your back and your ISO low.

I figured this was what Linus was talking about on the WAN Show on Friday. Can't wait to see this in ASUS's watercooled laptop.

i rlly cant see the point of it, i mean, if you want to play on it you have to put it on a desk (because heat problems) and plug the charger (because battery), might as well buy a desktop.

Its must be heavy as fk. why not buy or build a dekstop (with half the money) and buy a tablet with keybord and you will save a lot of money.

I just cant see the use of it.

And you have to stick with a 60hz display...

What about the person who has to stay in hotels a lot, maybe for business or is just a traveler, and is also a gamer? Speaking from personal experience, carrying a desktop and a monitor into a hotel room is time consuming and not enjoyable. 

This product isn't for your average consumer.
