    minimoose reacted to porina in PCIe 4 specification finalised and released   
    Source: https://www.anandtech.com/show/11967/pcisig-finalizes-and-releasees-pcie-40-spec
     
    If you're feeling the need for more expansion bandwidth, you can look forward to PCIe 4.0 offering double the per-lane bandwidth over 3.0. This has now been finalised so people can start testing real products using it. It may be assumed they would have a head start using earlier versions of the specification, so they don't have to start from scratch now, and work will be mainly to iron out any implementation and compatibility bugs. From our perspective, could AMD and Intel implement it in the next generation chipsets? We'll have to wait and see. Assuming the number of PCIe lanes doesn't grow significantly in the consumer space, the increased bandwidth may help with using more and/or faster storage or IO.
     
    It is also interesting that PCIe 5.0 has also got a date, under 2 years away in Q2 2019.

    I have a similar house, what I've found is that those walls kill WiFi signals. Also the WiFi can only be as strong as the client, so if the clients can't yell to the AP any louder than they already are, you will need to have multiple closer APs

    So the advantage of that is then you're never asked what it's in it? If something went wrong wouldn't I still be responsible?

    Except communism was independently established in China, Cuba and others. And their intellectual authors are german dudes.
     
    But I see your point. Especially since we've changed the definition of fascism just by using it to mean something else than just the Italian regime for quite some time.

    minimoose reacted to cynexit in Questions about switching to Linux   
    I use Linux as my daily driver and only boot Windows if I want to play some games. Although I wholeheartedly welcome your decision to switch to Linux, I have some doubts when reading your post, but lets start at the beginning.
     
    Ubuntu is a solid choice, however I hear more and more people recommending Linux Mint and I guess it would be worth a shot to have a look at it before you decide to go with Ubuntu. Driver support is independent from your distro.
    You'll probably want to switch your distro as soon as you've grown with Linux tough to get rid of the last bit of limitations.
     
    VirtualBox can do this with just one command. However, this will fuck with your Windows Activation because the hardware changed.
     
    Just to put this first: native gaming sucks balls. I own a fairly capable PC and am not afraid to tinker with driver and kernel modules at all but I couldn't even get close when it comes to FPS in most games. Besides the games from Valve almost all games advertised to "run under Linux" aren't optimized for OpenGL at all.
    The best way to game would be a Windows VM or dual boot system. If you want to use a VM you would've to pass trough your GPU, this works fairly well in my experience but can be a bit of a hassle.
    Now the software part: Try to use as many native-to-Linux programs as you can, but to some there will never be an alternative. If you do anything with Adobe stuff or Visual Studio there is no chance to find an alternative. You would have to run all of this in a VM. Yeah, you can get some of it to run using Wine and custom bindings, but you'll need to be an expert to do so, this is no task for a beginner. (I spent a whole day to get IDA Pro running...)
     
    So, conclusion time: The way you described it it seems to me like you'll have to run Windows in a VM. Not just occasionally but most of the time. This will work but there is a good chance this won't make you happy because it's not a very natural workflow. So my final advise would be: Set up dual boot, try to use Linux as much as possible and if you find yourself gravitating back to Windows as much as I think you will reevaluate the whole thing.

    First of all, I don't understand your line of reasoning? What sites in particular follow Twitter's lead? 
     
    Secondly, free in what way? Many people would say that being constantly exposed to hate speech about a group you belong to because some guy wants "a free internet" is not very free. And I would agree with them.

    This is a tech forum so most people will vote no because they liked his product instead of ever looking into him.
     
    Do I think he's a bad guy? Idk. Not for me to say. Never met the guy. Is he guilty? Yes. Of several things. Insider trading being one, the contents of megaupload being another, although that is a huge grey area altogether, making the situation fairly complicated, since it was also used for legitimate purposes.
     
    The search warrants being another huge grey area. They have been deemed invalid and then valid again. Frankly, that's a decision that should only be made once and should be irreversable, imo.

    This may have been answered already, but when you bind say a proton and a neutron together the collective mass is slightly smaller than the two separate particles and thanks to e=mc^2 that small mass difference means a huge energy release, it's what the sun does.
