    SurvivorNVL got a reaction from Scorpio 72472 in 2400 Vs. 2666 DDR4 ram   
    I don't know, because I don't know the ram kits or the latency.  2666 is faster than 2400 if they're the same latency, same for 3000, but 2400 can be considered faster than all of them if it has a much lower latency.  Like CL16 to CL12.  If you have a 2400 kit at CL12 and a 3000 kit at CL16 - the CL12 will beat it, but the speed is -hugely- negligible especially in everyday tasks.  Just get whichever is cheaper, the speed won't matter much unless you are rendering, editing, and running projects often and need to save time.

    SurvivorNVL reacted to Jon Jon in The FCC just KILLED Net Neutrality   
    Thank you for looking at this from the other perspective.
     
    It actually frightens me more seeing a lot of the comments here, on my social media outlets, etc. just how little people seem to understand about ISPs, how they are run, how net neutrality didn't MAGICALLY fix anything (because nothing was really broken).
     
    As someone who has been around on the internet in some form since 1999, I never noticed all of these issues that everyone seems to be so frightened of. It also bothers me that the people with the loudest voices seem to have the least amount of knowledge of how this stuff works, the business, etc. Granted, that is always the case.
     
    I am not AGAINST net neutrality, but I wish people would do their research and gain an understanding of what it entails, what its goals were, the pros and cons associated. Don't give into the SCARE tactics that people losing their minds over protecting this are feeding into the media, because there is no real basis for it, because these things have not happened.
     
    We've seen bandwidth caps in the past, and customer outrage nipped that in the butt (I remember reading numerous articles on Time Warner testing it out in some markets and getting major backlash). I also remember, more recently, how net neutrality really does not impact the cellular network space, because we had bandwidth throttling and accepted data caps all over the place on cellular (which is insane and ridiculous). You can thank T-Mobile for seeing an opportunity, stealing massive amounts of customers from AT&T and Verizon, and forced them back into offering unlimited data. The market made that happen. The customers (the PEOPLE), made that change happen. Now they throttle you if you use too much bandwidth and are in an area of the network where there is congestion (read the fine print for your cell carriers, as this is what my T-Mobile plan states).
     
    I would also challenge everyone here to think for yourselves. Digest the information available (real information, not BS opinion pieces and regurgitating what somebody else thinks). We live in a world too controlled by what the rich want us to think. Think for yourselves.
     
    Personally, I see no issue with "fast lanes" as we are all tossed onto a best effort track on these ISP's networks unless you are a business customer ANYWAY. I would love to pay extra money to get low latency, so the fiber that only extends to each city block with my ISP provider gives me priority, so during peak usage times, I don't get bandwidth starved. We do this in enterprise networks today, and I would be surprised if our ISPs aren't throttling certain access during peak hours to lower usage loads as part of maintenance.
     
    I think the major concern that everyone should be worried about is access to information. I would argue that THAT is an attack on free speech and freedom of the press. The internet is a utility today, as far as I am concerned. I would argue that restricting ACCESS to information should be deemed unconstitutional, and that freedom of information (digital or physical) should be protected in our rights. This should not fall under an act, but appended to the Bill of Rights.
     
    I could go on and on, but I really want everyone to take a deep breathe, get unbiased information, analyze the past of the internet and how it has evolved, etc.
     
    Also, as a side note, with net neutrality, MMOs would have struggled to become a thing. Am I the only one who remembers that there was an MMO that was actually partnered with Compuserve to guarantee you a good connection to the servers which ultimately helped drive down the cost of hosting it?

    See.  If there is a bomb threat, just for that on top of repealing net neutrality, they should just add an internet tax for good measure.

    SurvivorNVL reacted to Prysin in European Union Calls For Massive Internet Censorship   
    This is how EU works:
    Proposal with some very quiet public statements and publications
    nothing (secret lobbying)
    nothing (secret bickering)
    nothing (secret voting)
    Legislation announced to the public with a date upon which it turns into law
    Public outrage ensues
    Representatives addresses the complaints (goes on vacation to the bahamas on EU travel expenses)
    Nothing changes
    Law is in effect
    fuck you public
     
    This is what you get, when you allow a unelected, unregulated and UN-DEMOCRATIC ruling body, with NO responsibility nor accountability to its affected "subjects" to "govern" your life.
     
    This is why, if given the chance, i'd move to America. I dont care about Trump, violence, shitty pay, horrible healthcare or whatever. At the very least, you have the opportunity to call out your democratically elected leaders on their BS and actually have a hope of things improving.
    The only "people" that can affect whatever the EU does, is top brass of hedgefunds and fortune 500 companies/chinese/american government. Because nobody else has the ability to impose any actual "threat" or "consequence" to these people

    Germany already has a new "hate speech law" that forces social media sites to remove content. Of course, the law didn't define what hate speech is so much more gets removed especially if you are critically on Islam. I also noticed that one youtube Channel I follow is no longer accessible in Germany.

    SurvivorNVL reacted to GoodBytes in Steam reviewers are review bombing Dota for "killing Half Life 3"   
    Grow Up (I mean those doing this) Who cares?! I mean Dota 2 is a well known established franchised, and people who are interest in the game already bought it. Not to mention that people will read the reviews and see that it is about HL3 being cancelled. Game got cancelled most likely because Valve could top off the excellent HL2, and the hype and expectation of the HL3 is so high, that even if the game was really awesome, it will be a total disappointment, and flop.

    R&D, Salaries, Tooling, Sampling, Testing and Production cost hundreds of thousands. They will need to shift a lot of these. Which means they think TR will be a popular HEDT platform and worth the development cost.

    Isn't the coverage & mount holes the same for the Epyc version of the socket? If so, that would explain a bit of it. There'll be a market for AIOs for people making smaller Epyc servers.
