    Didn't Linus mention something about this limit in one of his videos?

    TOMPPIX reacted to rand_althor_cometh in HUB concludes that if you have a lower end CPU a Radeon GPU may be a better choice (if you can find one 😆)   
    This is a bigger deal than people in this thread are making it out to be. For budget minded gamers looking for an easy upgrade, the default reccomendation has been to get a better gpu for now until you upgrade CPU + mobo later. Not all of us have \<3 year old CPUs. Many of us have 4-5 year old CPUs that we want to push for a bit longer.
     
    If you're in such a scenario, then buying an NVIDIA card could cause a regression in your performance. Imagine spending $500 for a "cheap" upgrade and getting worse performance (assuming you were on AMD). And even if you were on NVIDIA, then you don't get the upgrade that you should be getting.

    I'm gonna test this out of with i5 6500 + 1070. I just bought a 6800xt and I'm trying to source a 3080 as well (I need 2 builds). But I will test a CPU limited game on my 1070 and a cpu limited game on my 6800xt. See if I can get a significant improvement of 20-30% just by going with AMD.

    Edit: Also thanks to those of you talking about completely unrelated opinions of who has better Linux drivers for derailing the crap out of this thread. A+.

    It's funny because the US whines loudly when EU countries try to tax US corporations on money made in the EU.

    TOMPPIX reacted to Kisai in Bitfinex sets record with titanic $4.5B and $5B BTC transactions   
    Bitcoin is quite literately doing what everyone knew would happen. All the "value" ends up in the pockets of a few, who already had deep enough pockets to invest in the mining in the first place. So they will turn around and dump their speculative holdings when they see it won't rise any farther, leaving whoever is stupid enough to be left holding the bag with bitcoins with no value. So the "rich" people will have gotten out a month before the value crashes, and then everyone else will want out, but find nobody willing to buy it, so the price will rapidly crash.  Because bitcoin has no value in the first place, whoever is last holding it is likely just to abandon the wallets. Then that's it, Bitcoin and all competing cryptocurrencies are dead.
     
    The "fees" for trading are far too high for anyone to be willing to use it for any purchase, and too slow to use for impulse purchases. So let's reverse the numbers here. If the crypto exchange fee is $20.00, and energy is $0.10 , $200 in energy is wasted per transaction regardless of the transaction's value (Assuming that was the break even point.)
    So the amount of money you have to exchange to make it "better" than:
    Western union (4% of principal, or around $50 per 1000, depends on country)  = $400
    Walmart (10% of principal) = $200
    Paypal ($4.30 +2.9% of principal) = $541
     
    Like never mind shipping checks or other monetary instruments through the mail or courier.
     
    If Bitcoin or some other crypto currency ever establishes itself, it will only be for very-high value exchanges, think mortgage payment or rent. And only as an interstitial. Nobody in their right mind would hold onto cryptocoins as a store of value with the kind of volatility it has.

    I hope they manage to ban and crackdown on crypto globally, it has no value other than scamming amateur investors, and producing massive ammounts of CO2.

    TOMPPIX reacted to Vishera in EU to start with a "Digital Euro" within 5 years   
    There are much better reasons to regulate crypto currencies: Criminals and terrorists like to use it,it's easy to get and use without the knowledge of law enforcement.
    So crypto currencies are also used for ransom payments,money laundering,hiring hitmans,financial support for terrorists and more,
    It's total anonymity makes it almost impossible to track such illegal transactions.
     
    It's not about taking control of people,it's about safer and more stable currency that is more suitable for the average Joe.

    That's why it's retarded. An actual currency shouldn't be an investment. It should be used in circulation not stored in a vault to be turned into an actual currency later.

    With GPU mining you're not really printing it. You're sort of just exporting it to PDF 😉

    The cryptocurrency market has to die. From a logical and rational point of view it makes no sense whatsoever to convert electricity into an online currency. It literally has zero purpose. No I don't care that it helps you dodge taxations or that you are able to make an income from this. Electricity usage is already high enough in the world, we don't need morons running graphics cards day and night for nothing more than just money making reasons. I doubt Americans are able to understand my argument or care too much about environmental consequences but I can definitely see the EU stepping in one day and regulating this because it literally defies logic from a humanity perspective.

    They did it to themselves. They should have not released the game for the last-gen consoles. The open world large scale scenes they want cannot run on old hardware the way they want them to.
