    mikat got a reaction from JoostinOnline in Computer shuts down in gpu intensive games/benchmarks   
    I just wanted to say that we figured it out whilst I was writing this but I didn't wanna throw this post away so other people in the future could benefit from our findings: the included fans in the meshify C only go up to 1200 rpm and we had to max them out all the time to get acceptable southbridge (chipset) temperatures, they were going up steadily while running furmark, gonna order him a noctua NF-A14 to fix the problem and get him some more airflow

    No, Linus explained it on wan show, he's the CEO of both companies but floatplane isn't owned by LMG

    I'd wait til you have all the money and spend it all at once, you never know when new hardware comes to market

    mikat got a reaction from Lowfat_Cheese in Does RTX allow for Faster Ray-Traced Renders in Maya/Blender over Non-RTX?   
    Blender doesn't have support yet but it seems like maya is getting support soon:
    I'd wait for the release before buying a new gpu (we don't know how much better an rtx gpu is vs a normal gpu, this could just be a gpu thing)

    mikat reacted to BrinkGG in LTT Server Rack   
    If it was a technical question about configuration of their servers I'd be more curious of the context for why you ask, but since it's literally about a metal box you have no worries. 
    If you do end up with an awesome looking rack setup though, feel free to share it in the Battle Stations and Build Setups thread! 
    I personally love clean server rack setups.

    Well, yes, you don't need a good monitor, but that sure as hell is nice. I personally love screen real-estate and crisp text, can get around bigger IDE's without constantly pushing things around to see the widget or screen I need. When I had a small screen I just got some vi plugins and worked on that, but eventually I needed more features on bigger projects. I'll get around to a 21:9 someday, code on one side, library reference on another, perfect.

    well yeah but only if you know beforehand what you're gonna be running your code on, you have to make a seperate binary for every architecture

    @Den15 Nice, Linux is great, you don't have to worry about getting the crappy version of docker then
    As for monitors I'd not recommend anything under 1440p, 1080p is really limiting from my experience (laptop for school) and it's always a relief coming home to 2x4k monitors

    Not much, but I can say that CPUs with higher clock speeds are nice and it's definitely handy to grab windows 10 pro, the clockspeed is because many compilers for web development only use one thread if you're only compiling one final js file. Windows 10 pro is for when you want to do virtualization with hyper-v and testing out docker images on your computer (the version for windows 10 home is awful )
    You should be fine with an cpu equal to or better than the i5-8250u. I'd get 16gb of ram for virtual machines and chrome tabs
    That is if you're shopping for a laptop, if you're shopping for a desktop, I'd get either the i3-9300 or the i5-9500 (i7's will be slightly better but not by a lot, perf/$ falls of a cliff at that point for web development)

    mikat reacted to The_Vaccine in Linus can we get YouTube exclusive videos   
    never going to happen. linus outright said that anybody can do whatever the hell they want to do on CSF, and use any ad money from there. nobody cares about that channel. 
    >1 video per day is not going to happen. the team is already working full time to get 1/day. they might do it after this next wave of recruitment but no commitments. floatplane is mainly meant as an extra revenue source and LTT spreading out their wings for stability. (literally why it is called floatplane)

    If you use NVENC you will not have lower FPS since it's a seperate part of the gpu that does the encoding from the part that does the gaming

    mikat reacted to Dash Lambda in Climate change real or hoax?   
    This is a very risky topic to make a thread about, usually these types of discussions are avoided to keep things civil, but before any of that I'd like to clarify one thing:
     
    Climate change in general shouldn't be thought of as weather getting warmer. The global average temperature is increasing, but a very significant change there is a fraction of a degree, far from the 5-10 degree differences that would make the weather feel significantly warmer.
     
    What that tiny global change does do is make weather more extreme and unpredictable. So record highs and lows are attributed to global warming, as well as increased storm activity, sudden changes in temperature (which happens a lot where I live, yay Michigan), and stuff like that. So the weather being warmer isn't really a climate change thing, but the weather being different and/or unpredictable is.

    mikat reacted to KarathKasun in A GPU suggestion for my very old i7 3770   
    The SITE is bogus, and you cant quad SLI 280ti's so you just look like a wanker now.
     
    CPU limitation depends on resolution and the game being played.
    Higher resolution = less CPU bottleneck.  Civ 5 is ALWAYS CPU bottlenecked.

    mikat got a reaction from mxk in What is the difference between a quadro and a gtx video card   
    You need a quadro if you want to use 10 bit color in adobe programs and they have more video memory to store large models, the rest is explained in the video

    mikat reacted to Sakuriru in [Javascript] Can a function call itself?   
    Don't do this. Please.
     
    Rewrite your algorithm to not be recursive. Recursion is harder to read and less performant. The performance difference can be huge, actually. It's an easy way to run out of stack space.
