  1. There are likely no 2nm structures within a 2nm transistor, they'll likely be somewhat larger than that. Q. tunneling may not be a problem, Even if it is, it's just a question of probabilities: the likelihood of tunneling occurring increases quadratically as you get smaller, but it might be manageable at this scale. Even if EUV is implemented, it will be running out of steam as well and require quad patterning IIRC. Costs will skyrocket. Also, you're probably thinking of electron lithography: theoretically it offers near perfect accuracy, but it's serial (one electron at a time).
  2. I'm not really concerned about them getting there, it's just a money problem. That said, I do wonder how many companies have the volume necessary to design a product on this node,
  3. To be honest i first though that 'S' was meant to denote multiple 9900K processors, not the actual model.
  4. Well, I wanted to get into collecting: having an actual "wall of old stuff" seems appealing to me. I actually grew up using an SNES (which my dad had bought 15 years prior), so retro gaming is something that is slightly nostalgic for me. But I do agree with you: emulation does provide the best experience in terms of video and general reliability. But it just isn't the same.
  5. Where's the fun in that? I payed 30 euro for a bad experience. If i wanted convenience and clean video, I'd do that. ?
  6. It is a French NES: fortunately it uses the same connector as the SNES, so i got a spare cable recently. I'll try the contact cleaner, however it's likely that I'll need to remove the entire AV/power unit and shield and check if the actual circuitry looks good (bad caps are a thing after all). Worse case I'll just buy a new connector and solder it . Shouldn't be too difficult (but it will be a pain). Thanks for the suggestion though ?
  7. I live barely 8km away from Notre Dame. I usually don't think much about it. This came out of nowhere..
  8. Where did you get that gif for your profile picture

      The internet, probably. I don't remember.

  9. This probably isn't a very popular opinion, but emulation usually gets you a better experience than the original hardware: the video and audio are usually cleaner, you don't need to worry about up-scaling and conversion on modern TVs and you can usually tweak quite a few settings, which you can't do on a console. What's more, the original hardware isn't always very reliable depending on age. Plus, emulators for popular consoles are now at a point where compatibility and accuracy are near 100% But i also get why people want the original systems. Heck, i own a NES, a SNES and 2 game
  10. already done. Taken apart twice over. The problem is that the whole video/power assembly isn't easily accessible: it needs to be de-soldered from the main board and is under a shield. I'd rather not do that if i can help it.
  11. Even if this turns out to be true, the article is a quite harsh. This isn't necessarily an easy thing to do given the massive changes in zen 2. Besides, one can ask if it's even worth it, seeing the features you'll probably be losing out on with a 300 series board anyway.
  12. About 2 weeks ago i got my hands on a use NES for basically nothing. Too good to pass up. As expected for hardware this old, there were issues involving the 72 pin connector, general corrosion etc. But i did eventually get it working. However, i haven't been able to get clear, stable video from the console itself. It outputs via SCART through the multi-AV connector, and fortunately we still have an old TV with that on it. Sound comes in fine, but the video is typically noisy/distorted, with color flickering in and out (typically, only part of the screen will b
  13. I mean, sure i don't care too much about thickness. But this is just ridiculous. At that point I'd just rather carry a battery bank.
  14. Hey, I learned something today: despite being a POS, the WII/GC's CPU is technically more advance than a PS3/XBOX CPU at an architectural level. Now if only the core count and clock speeds advantages weren't a thing...
