    Coaxialgamer got a reaction from dalekphalm in COVID-19 - READ THE RULES BEFORE REPLYING   
    That argument applies for literally every single piece of medication that hasn't been available for more than a typical human lifespan; even with longer testing periods, if you test your vaccine for n years you still have no way of knowing for sure that problems won't pop up after n + 1 years.
     
    You're ultimately running into the limits of actual science here: it is not possible to disprove that problems will happen after n years, just that it doesn't occur (or doesn't occur in significant amounts) in n - 1 years.
     
    Ultimately, COVID is killing many people now and the vaccine is not (or at least not more than a handful of people), so giving out a vaccine is not unwarranted from a risk-reward perspective.
    Besides, most later-in-life issues relating to hazardous compounds typically occur as a result of repeat/regular exposure, whether that be smoking, radiation or other compounds. When something is toxic enough to be problematic after one or two exposures (eg poison, massive radiation doses,, heavy smoke) it typically manifests rather quickly (and would have during clinical trials).
     
    You can also take solace that there are multiple viable vaccines out there, based on different tech. And ultimately, one can trust that those developping these vaccines have some amount of experience in the matter.

    Coaxialgamer reacted to manikyath in Adding wireless charging functionality using third-party means   
    i'm aware of this product that's designed to plug into the phone's charge port, and go in between the back of the phone,and a rubber phone case.
    it's essentially just a qi charging receiver coil, a pcb to turn that into 5 volts, and a flatflex cable to a connector, wrapped up in a sticker to be more marketing friendly.

    Coaxialgamer got a reaction from Taintedmind in Asus Multicore Enhancement - On or Off?   
    You'd still see a benefit though.
    MCE essentially makes the CPU run at single-core turbo speeds ( 4.7ghz on the 8700k). The regular 4 core turbo is 4.4ghz , so you'd be gaining 5-10% with it enabled.
     
    Those speeds are safe and intel rates their CPUS to run at those clocks. Accelerated aging should not occur , at least not during the CPU's usable life. Power will be higher through , but those chips still have power saving features. Clocks should go down at idle.

    1-yes
    2-your cpu will run hotter and use more power
    3- multithreaded workloads

    There's no real point in doing so. You won't be extracting any extra performance from it

    Coaxialgamer got a reaction from Taf the Ghost in TSMC started R&D on 2nm process   
    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).

    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,

    Coaxialgamer reacted to mr moose in Huawei to find alternative to play store   
    All the crap with politics and spying aside, this highlights the monopoly google has over smart phones if a company can't sell a phone without them.
     
    Remember all that shit in the apple thread about ios and monopolies.  This is the same thing.  Google refuses to allow them access to the play store and all of a sudden it is significantly harder to sell your product. 
     
    Time will tell if they can or cannot produce an alternative to the play store, my guess is likely not seeing as MS couldn't compete in the same market. 
     
    As far as I am concerned the whole industry needs a shake up.

    Coaxialgamer got a reaction from PlayStation 2 in Emulate or Not   
    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 gears (both of which needed cap replacements btw).The feel of using the old hardware can't be matched by an emulator.  There are ways to get the OG controllers connected via USB, but it isn't always the same.
    So it's up to you, really. Do you value the experience or the authenticity more?

    Coaxialgamer got a reaction from 8uhbbhu8 in MSI will support ZEN2 on 300 series motherboards, models to come in the future   
    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.

    Do people actually want foldable phones though? Seems like this is another thing people find cool but don't actually want, like flying cars or 3D television. Out of everything i want from a phone, being able to fold it wasn't on the list.
