    Mihle got a reaction from Aero_db in How to Lose 100TB of Data: A Guide to My $2000 Mistake   
    What you day about PSU and power efficiency only really matters for full load if you think it will actually spend a lot of time at full load. PSUs also get less efficent at low loads but then it's also drawing less. (5% of 800 is more than 5% of 200 % 😛)
     
    I doubt you would actually need 1300w ever unless you go dual CPU or GPU.
     
    But I had not thought of warranty or how long it lasts. I don't know if other PSUs have as long warranty. That had not crossed my mind.

    Mihle got a reaction from Mitko_DSV in what is worse for the environment? consumerism or using older stuff...   
    Yeah, that is what I think of it basically, really.
    But I have seen quite a bit of US people thinking of it as Only US/Canada.
    And I have heard some Europeans count for example Lithuania as in the west while other dont.
    Even if something have a definition doesn't mean everyone think like that definition.

    Best way to limit the impact on the environment:
     
    Buy less, for example longer time between every time you upgrade your PC. If buying higher end now makes it take longer time before you upgrade, that is better. Reuse, for example use older equipment for something else, or sell or give away to someone else that will. Recycle, of something is broken or too old that anyone want to use it, don't throw it away to just be burned or throw in a landfill, throw it away somewhere you know it will be recycled.

    “The West” is a pretty well understood term in political science. It generally refers to what we’d say are the developed English speaking world + it’s close allies. Think AUS, Canada, UK, US, NZ, EU members.

    It's not really a matter of opinion. Buying new stuff and throwing out the old is very bad. If it can be resold or given away for reuse, that would be better. And recycling it if it can't be reused is okay.
     
    Reduce.
    Reuse.
    Recycle.
     
    In that order.

    Mihle reacted to leadeater in AMD patent teases GPU chiplet design tech, is this the great big leap over NVIDIA?   
    Well that depends, it's certainly more likely to be harder (and I mean this now and before specifically for AMD not game devs). Synchronization between each chiplet is a real problem where as with SLI and Crossfire they settled on Alternate Frame Rendering (AFR) and increasing the number of buffered frames to reduce the impact of frame time differences, FrameSpacing in Nvidia speak. AFR removes a huge number of complications especially around post processing effects because if you have two different GPUs rendering the same frame but different portions of it and each apply post effects you don't get proper consistency around the entire frame on the display as each GPU doesn't actually have the entire frame when doing this step so is unable match with the missing portions. Split Frame Rendering is very uncommon because of this.
     
    AFR might be an imperfect solution in regards to performance as a whole but it is the most compatible and reliable method to ensure real time visual consistency and smoothness.
     
    Having access to a unified memory pool does not actually solve the synchronization issue, it solves the issue of being able to have multiple different GPU elements rending the same frame all having the same information. This doesn't solve the problem of each element completing a task ahead or behind another.
     
    What is desired is actually split, or more so tile based rendering, and a unified memory archecture across multiple chiplets does allow this but care around synchronization is still required and then you also have to be careful of the interconnect bandwidth and latency.
     
    This is why I said it's harder than SLI, however unlike SLI a working solution for a chiplet GPU will be far more effective and easier to utilize.
     
    Remember it was already hard enough to properly feed a simple single GPU solution like GCN, correctly filling the Wavefronts with work was a big problem and left large portions of the GPU idle. This is only going to be more complicated in a multi chip design with a more complicated memory system. It's not like I don't think AMD can do it, but it's certainly a more difficult technical challenge than SLI/crossfire were, or at least there is no easy cheat (AFR).

    Mihle reacted to CarlBar in Google employees formally launch new union after pushback from Alphabet   
    Been meaning to give my thoughts on this but been putting it off. This provides a nice springboard and i've got free time so here i go.
     
    Whilst i agree with the general sentiment above, some of the things people from the US have been saying in this thread make it clear the US style unions are incredibly flawed too. A lot of the stuff mentioned wouldn't fly in the UK, and i'm sure most of the rest of Europe, Aus, and probably a few other places too. A union cannot force people in a company to pay union dues or be part of it, they can't, (beyond keeping the employee informed of their rights and helping them represent those), keep someone from getting fired and they can't get someone reinstated once they have been fired. They largely boil down to helping you navigate the legal codes, providing representation and support in meetings, and should you need to take legal action, in legal proceedings.
     
    Thats not to say they're perfect. I had the one i was part of at my last job leave me with no support when i needed it. I had a rep change midway through my employment and he basically tossed away everything the previous rep had done to give me a safety net which left me with nothing support wise when the company again tried to push me out the door, (they where known for it and had tried it before, we ought them off that time).

    Mihle reacted to Dutch_Master in Google employees formally launch new union after pushback from Alphabet   
    Over here, that wouldn't happen. If company rules state he cannot smoke (never mind stuff he shouldn't smoke anyway) the company can sack him if he's caught (repeatedly and after several oral and written reprimandes, that's a hard requirement) and no union rep can give him his job back, simply because they don't have that power. Only a Judge could, and often they side with the employer with reasoning of "a heavily disturbed working relationship" as cause for termination even if the company is clearly at fault. (in which case the company has to pay, significantly*) And although employers are legally not allowed to discuss former employees with other employers, nor are those employers legally allowed to ask for that information, it still happens informally (regrettably) so that dude wouldn't have gotten that 2nd job after his antics got him fired from his first place of work.
     
    *case in point: Easyjet. Not too long ago they closed their Dutch air base as punishment for their Dutch staff going on strike, A Judge deemed the actions from the company illegal and ordered it to pay serious compensation to the sacked staff. AFAIK they paid up, as failure to do so would lead to a "contempt of Court" verdict, which would leave the company open to some serious trouble and not just in NL. The Judge could then have ordered grounding of aircraft, even if Easyjet doesn't own them (for that reason) because Dutch Law includes an " economical usage" clause: If you use it to gain a benefit (financial or material), even if you don't legally own it, it can still be impounded. So the Judge could have ordered grounding of jets used by Easyjet, not only in NL, but Europe-wide. And believe me, most Gov't here would have happily complied as they're fed up with the frankly immoral antics of that Irish "dude" in charge of the airline. 🙄  OK, rant over

    Only scummy companies are scared of unions because they know they won't be able to fuck their staff over anymore. In the UK unions have done a lot of good work especially these days. In the past some got a bad name but these days a lot of unions will really help you out. Companies think twice before fucking you over if you are part of a union. The US could really use with a lot more unions.

    Again Cryptocurrency is essentially a stock and there are risks involved and pointing to past trends of bitcoin as some indication that the is no risk in investing is simply not true.

    Mihle reacted to CarlBar in EU made CPU's? EU signs €145 billion declaration to develop next-gen processors and 2nm technology   
    And that affects what i said how. You can move everything into the cloud, (i guarantee most major businesses won't have for security alone), thats not going to stop businesses demanding extremely heavy control over whats going on with their stuff there and moving their existing software there, all of which will be x86 so the cloud will be x86.
     
    There's a reason Apple has next to no presence in corporate space, (relatively speaking). It;s because apples super locked down, everything obsolete eventually, you have no control style, is something corporate space absolutely will not accept. So they told apple where to shove it.
     
    Thats the issue with killing x86. Corporations will not let it die, it's too problematic for them to let it. They also want reliability and control. Any implementation of x86 that doesn't give them that won't get anywhere.And whilever the major corporations are using it it will persist in the home space because it's what people are familiar with and will be taught in school.

    Mihle reacted to Commodus in Voat.co, a social media website Shutdown their services on Christmas   
    I have a feeling this thread could very easily go off the rails given the nature of Voat, but I'll try to keep it on topic.
     
    It's not at all surprising that sites like Voat, 8chan, Parler and Gab struggle and sometimes die. If you create a site with effectively no rules, you just create a haven for the people kicked off other platforms... and surprise, those people are often extremely toxic. And when a community is dominated by toxic people, everyday people will just stick to the moderated spaces.
     
    In short: these sites are rarely the utopian dreams they're portrayed to be, and more-than-the-minimum content moderation frequently helps.
