  1. It's because both PCie and EPS (4+4) cables are made up of 12V and Ground, but their arrangement of pins are different, so you need a different cable to make use of each of them, but the port (on the PSU side) stays the same
  2. OH That is exciting! I believe this would be the future of chip designs going forward, can't wait to see what it can come up with
  3. The 3600 performs slightly faster in games but it isn't much, and I agree that it is enough for now, but as I've said, in the very near future games will become a lot more CPU dependent so the extra 2 cores will become handy
  4. A 100Mhz-200Mhz clock difference is insignificant compared to the amount of extra cores, 6 Cores is 50% faster than 4 Cores, while as an example 4Ghz and 3.9Ghz is 2.5% faster. Especially since the 3600 can easily be overclocked
  5. An RTX 3060 is not overkill for 1080p, it'll most likely perform closely to the regular RTX 2070 but cheaper and with 12GB of VRAM, and going forward games would become more CPU bound for sure, so a 3600 is needed, even though a 3300X would be okay right now.
  6. What games are you running? it seems to me that you have a CPU bottleneck which prevents the GPU from being used to 100%, that's why it's only at 50W. That FX 770K CPU is ancient and is not up to handle an RX 480 by any means.
  7. Also when I mention AI, I don't mean humanoids or anything resembling that, I mean it as a software tool, like GPT3 as an example, It's a language model but it has picked up various skills from the amount of data that it was trained on, it's quite impressive.
  8. I see AI as a tool to help develop the world around us, I believe one day AI would be able to engineer, design, manufacture a product based on the description of it, and that includes CPU and GPU development, imagine if the AI could optimize an architecture beyond what is humanly possible and for a small amount of money as it won't require the huge amount of R&D that comes with employing humans, except of course the initial design of the AI. That extends to all human-made products seen around us, it can be a massive accelerator for R&D, and therefore products would get chea
  9. https://www.marbridgeconsulting.com/marbridgedaily/2011-06-20/article/47115/qihoo_360_partners_with_german_anti_virus_firm Partnering/licensing ≠ owning/developing
  10. This is not proof that Qihoo owns or made Bitdefender, their 360 Total Security software is using multiple antivirus engines to scan for "extra security", I'm assuming they've grabbed licenses for it to utilize it, though they've removed Bitdefender from their software a couple of years ago. Are you also saying that Qihoo owns Avira?
  11. Using the same engine doesn't mean it's a product by 360TS, where is the proof for this?
  12. Only relation I see between Qihoo 360 (360 Total Security) and Bitdefender, is that 360TS is using Bitdefender's engine.
  13. I see no such claims anywhere that it was bought by 360 Total Security..
  14. Bitdefender is a Romanian company
  15. I've used to use Bitdefender a few years ago but Microsoft Defender (Windows Security) has gotten good enough that it wasn't necessary anymore, I have reasonable trust in it to protect my system from viruses
