  1. Does Intel name anything in a simple to understand way? Not sure I understand where you get "4" from 7nm, and "3" from 7nm+ Or where 20A comes from unless the processors use 20 Amps. - I know it states "Ångström" but if 10 Ångström = 1nm, then shouldn't 20 Ångström be... 2nm? when in this case its 5nm?
  2. Exactly. I can think of a handful of older PC games or older console games that were ported to PC that haven't been released on Switch (yet if ever).
  3. If Netflix fails at this, can we finally declare cloud gaming as Dead like VR gaming was the 90s? Or will we hear some other company that has even lesser odds of making it work trying their hat in the game? I'd personally wager Netflix has a lesser chance of making this work then Google or Amazon. While they have the infrastructure for video streaming, it isn't 0 buffer 100% live. Also I doubt their infrastructure is set up in any way shape or form for running games, vs streaming a video file off of a hard drive.
  4. These images reminds me of how the US airforce made a super computer comprised of 1700 PS3s back in the day. https://phys.org/news/2010-12-air-playstation-3s-supercomputer.html
  5. I know black makes it more readable, but Blue at this point is more recognizable as "issue has happened!" My PC displaying black with white text makes me think I'd just seeing some kinda BIOS related shiznaz.
  6. "TV like ads" You mean that in the cutscene before a boss fight, the game will fade to black, then show me of an old guy saying he has ED, and if I do too I should ask my doctor about ____ (insert all side effects) ... Return to the game.
  7. Well, this is gonna suck and break a lot of random posts... Its like someone looked at old forum posts about how to do/fix something and how a good chunk look like this: And thought "YES we need another wave of this!" Seriously I can't describe how much Ive seen those two images, when trying to research some stupid obscure bug/error message.
  8. The last laptop I got that didn't have one was my old Thinkpad W520 - a 2011 laptop. It had a "Thinklight" instead, which is essentially a lil spotlight at the top of the screen that pointed down towards the keyboard. (I actually really liked that feature over backlit keys) It but even then it was uncommon for laptops to not have web cameras back then. Its a weird requirement that probably has good intentions (get laptop makers to put an actual decent quality web camera in their machines rather then the same garbage they have been using for 10+ years. But that could totally get in the way
  9. I'm not even talking big games. These days it tends to be those super small "This sold < 50K copies" Developer and publisher are long gone. Then again... I guess if The Mystery of the Druids got revived, and Plumbers Don't Wear Ties is getting a rerelease anything is possible if its meme worthy enough.
  10. Buying media as a kid, even if you have cash was, and still is difficult. When I was a youth, piracy was the only way to get some titles. There was no Steam, no GOG, no digital stores whats so ever, so unless you could find the game in stores you were outta luck. - Gamestop stopped stocking PC games besides WoW for a long time, and Bestbuy's selection tended to be lacking - Even with new releases. Oh and flat out forget anything older then a few years. I was unable to purchase a PC copy of Morrowind till sometime after Skyrim came out. (Same story with Diablo 2, DOOM 3 exc.) A whole gen
  11. Can you actually verify that some guy got payed to go to a test bench, boot Windows 11, do whatever kinda test protocall. Turn off the machine swap a Ryzen 3600 for a Ryzen 3600X, did the test again... (exc exc) Personally that seems like a waste of time if you have lets say 5 SKUs that only have a change in clock speed. It make more sense to verify the slowest, and then the fastest, then assume the other 3 where the only difference is clock speed, all work. Unless there has been an incident in the past where 2Ghz works, 2.1Ghz works, 2.2Ghz fails, 2.3Ghz works. And did they actually te
  12. Its probably more like "Minimum requirements" that games give. Beyond the OS, DX versions, and storage requirements, "minimum requirements" is completely subjective, and most of the time are based on a test bench developers have. (Thats why games always list mid to high end GPUs of yesteryear rather then ever mentioning low end cards, and why you can often go with lower end hardware then what they say is the "minimum". ) I'd seriously take the CPU suppoted list as a "These are the CPUs we have verified actually works." - (And by verify I mean they probably only tested a few from each ge
  13. Maybe I'm a lil outa touch, but weren't there notable issues with SecureBoot, to the point its actually kinda pointless, and more then anything just gets in the way of someone who wants to install a different OS on their system?
  14. How far back does one need to go before GPUs no longer support DX12? Off the top of my head I am pretty sure the HD Radeon 7000 series was the first to support DX12, (Long live the HDR 7870!!!) Nvidia it seems to be the Geforce 400 series, and Intel-Oh.... RIP everything pre Skylake without a dGPU. Looks like my parents Thinkpads aren't going to Win11.
