    bbqsauce reacted to Ryujin2003 in Final content patch for Ubisoft's The Division 1 released. RIP   
    Understood, but most of the game breaking bugs have been fixed. Yes, some of them were abortions..
     
    However, in Ubisofts defense, they have learned a lot. With both Division and Ghost Recon (for example), developers have done a great job interacting with fans/consumers, and making updates and changes to fix bugs and make the games better. For The Division 2, I think Ubisoft learned a lot from the first Division, and if they start the game at least where Division 1 ends, then they have a good start. But from the previews, it looks like the Snowdrop engine has been buffed, and the game brings even more aspects the first one didn't have. Taking feedback and making things better.
     
    Upgrading the Snowdrop engine may not have worked for Division 1, so I'd rather take the new game. I'd rather Ubisoft not repeat the game design of R6S, with constant additions without much base improvement. Yes, they'll fix some bugs, but some things need a whole redesign which you won't get unless they make a new game with a better engine, better graphics, and an actual story campaign.

    bbqsauce got a reaction from cj09beira in AMD encouraging retailer price gouging   
    so they are expected to just say don't buy our stuff because of increased prices?
    obviously they cannot control what retailer sells at.
    being a business they undoubtedly want to maximize profits and high demand with limited supply offers huge returns.
    management and shareholders probably can't give 2 shits about whats happening as long as they see the products fly off the production line as soon as they are ready and that is what exactly is happening.
    What benefit is it to a company like AMD to bump up production to keep up with the inflated supply. what happens if the crypto market collapses? AMD will suffer due to investing in upping production to unsustainable levels. It literally makes AMD take in all the risk
    you imagine yourself as a shareholder of said company and their CEO tells you during a meeting that they lost millions due to investing in increased production because of people qq-ing about retailer price gouging and then the demand fizzled out. So who is responsible then.
    i'm pretty sure they have proper financial teams that have gone over the potential short-term gains over the risks involved and deemed it not wise to ramp up production to unsustainable levels.

    bbqsauce reacted to dizmo in WB profiting of the death of one of their devs?   
    That's incredible. I can't believe that people are actually complaining about the fact that a company went out of their way to pay homage to one of their devs, and is even donating money to the family.
    Do you know how many people die, any the company that they work for does nothing for the family? Yet here WB is, putting in work, making sure they help out the family. If the company catches flak for it, do you know what will happen in the future? Other companies, that might have thought of doing something similar, simply won't do it. Not worth the hassle. People that are complaining are ruining it. Fucking selfish pricks.
    I don't care how much the company makes, the fact that they're donating anything is something to be proud of, and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to take their head out of their entitled asshole.
     
    Moreover, has anyone actually asked the family, who is really the only person entitled to an opinion about this, what they think?
    No it's not. Setting up something like that, putting in the time, effort, resources, and then donating money to the family?
    How is that a piece of shit thing to do? They didn't have to do anything, and here they are putting in tons of work.
    I think it's wonderful. Why is it grievous? You know what they're entitled to? Nothing. And yet, here WB is going above and beyond to provide something to them. Attitudes like yours are a huge part of what's wrong with the world.
    Stupid reason to boycott someone. Stupid reason to bitch.
    I love DLC. I love getting content for a game I like after its been released. Now, granted, some companies charge way too much, and that's where the issue should arise. Not wit the fact they're offering post release content at all.
    No, they should be happy they're getting anything at all.
    What? $3.50 out of $5 is 70%. Where are they lying?
    Did they have an asterisk by the every unit sold, or was it spoken, and thus taken out of context?

    bbqsauce reacted to straight_stewie in Windows 10 Scheduler bug causes poor RyZen performance   
    "The real cores of threads"??? A thread is simply a piece of a program that is executing independently of other pieces. A core is a physical subcomputer (really a full computer) in a microprocessor. A thread is abstract, it does not actually exist. It is a way of talking and thinking about how to execute things simultaneously. 

    Understanding why Windows sucks requires understanding the real difference between a physical core and a logical core. The first step is to understand that a "logical core" is not something that windows makes up, it is hardware enabled (Intel's version of this is known as HyperThreading).
     
    We can think of multiple physical cores as having more than one processor per processor. I know that sounds weird, but that's actually what it is, sort of. When you have a 4 core processor, what you really have is 4 independent and complete processors with their own control units that are all driven by a central control unit. This allows multiple instructions from multiple programs to execute simultaneously, like actually simultaneously. This is an important distinction to make, because as we are about to find out, Simultaneous MultiThreading (aka SMT, or as Intel calls it, HyperThreading) isn't really simultaneous at all.
     
    Now that we know that we have multiple cores per chips, it would be nice to know what those cores look like in the context of SMT. A core has an instruction pipeline which feeds the core instructions on what to do. It also has a small amount of addressable memory, known as a register file. The register file contains the following things:
     
    General Purpose Registers Stack Pointer(s) Program Counter(s) State register(s) It is this register file which is interesting in the context of SMT. What we do to allow Simultaneous MultiThreading is to have more than one (but usually only two), distinct and separate, register files per core. This allows us to do a very fast "context switch". In a core without SMT, a context switch involves the following steps, in order:
    Finishing the execution of the current instruction. Stopping the execution of the current program. Saving the machine state, including the contents of the register file to memory. Loading the new program (or a previous programs saved state) into the register file. Starting execution of the new program. This is very time consuming, and if it happens frequently (which it does, every time you move the mouse, type on the keyboard, or make an OS call) will significantly reduce the amount of time that your processor spends actually running a program. Beyond that, memory accesses are the single slowest thing a computer can do. To fix this, we use SMT. A context switch in a core with SMT enabled follows the following steps, in order:
    Finishing the execution of the current instruction. Stopping the execution of the current program. Switch to the other register file. Begin execution of the new program. We can see a few things from this. The first, and most important for our purposes is that SMT does not involve executing two programs simultaneously. It comes close, as we will learn about in the following paragraphs, but two instructions from separate programs are never executing simultaneously on a single core. The second thing we can learn is that a naive implementation of SMT will only speed things up if the program we are switching to is already loaded into the second register file. There is an easy way past this, however that is out of the scope of this discussion.

    So why is Simultaneous MultiThreading called "Simultaneous MultiThreading" if there's really nothing simultaneous about it? Well, the answer is fairly simple (although implementation of the answer can be quite complex. The two programs running on the single core can compete for system resources, and the OS may grant access to such based on how badly the program needs it, in a way of speaking. In this way, the programs can execute "simultaneously" in the sense that one program does not have to finish or willingly release resources for another program to use it. This could be naively accomplished by alternating which instructions execute. First from the first program, then from the second, then from the first, and so on.
     
    So how does all of this relate to the problem in question? Well, it has to do with how AMD's architects have chosen to implement SMT (or lack thereof if they are just virtualizing it). Windows developers didn't fully read the processor datasheets that they were given, and they failed to write a kernel that could properly manage system resources on the new chips. 

    P.S. I know I gave windows a hard time. It's all in good jest, computing systems are overwhelmingly complex and problems like this, or worse, should be expected when any new product this complicated is released.

    bbqsauce got a reaction from Mihle in AMD officially classifies Polaris 10 as mainstream desktop GPU and high-end notebook GPU   
    the enthusiast market isn't where the money is at. mainstream i.e 970/390 and lower is where the bulk of the market is. why launch a flagship card that would more than likely make up the minority of their margin when you can lead your launch with what makes you actual money.
    So it makes sense to launch the more mainstream class cards first that will more than likely go into prebuilts and laptops.

    We should also take the word "mainstream" with a pinch of salt nowadays. AMD seems to be pushing VR to be mainstream and a 970/390 class card is like the minimum. Extrapolating from that and it would say that the "new mainstream" would likely be above 970/390 in performance

    bbqsauce got a reaction from Luraguse in The Division - Ubisoft's Fastest-Selling Game   
    people are quick to judge the game from the beta, thinking they know the game in its entirety. fine by me. if they want to let bias get in their thinking so be it.

    they hear youtubers say its boring and they jump on the bandwagon and say its boring too.
    sure i don't disagree that its repetitive. its an age old mmorpg formula. So if you personally don't appreciate those grindy missions and what not. don't play it. say it's not to your tastes, don't say the game is shit cause it's not to your personal preference.
    it does have bullet spongey enemies, especially the elites and named enemies in the dz. however its not as bad as people would like you to believe. if it takes you 5 mags to drop a elite, you are either too under leveled, under geared, or you aren't aiming for the heads and or the gas tanks/grenade packs. it's an mmorpg so it should punish you accordingly if you are under geared. On top of that, mobs melt when you are in a group. in that sense i would say for the dz, they need to nerf group play. 
     
    i played both the cbt and obt with over 50hours of gametime combined so yeah i've played a lot, i po it since i knew i would like it after the beta and i got it cheap (around 40usd) so to those who think the beta is a representation of the entire game: don't. 
    to those who are still on the fence after playing the beta: if you aren't interested in the grindy aspect or didn't have fun playing, then i suggest holding off.
    sure it gives you the gist of the game and its mechanics but it sure as hell doesn't give you the entire content. heck the beta was like what 10% of the entire content? you barely had access to any skills and there was no variation in playstyle. but now that the full skill trees and talents and perks are unlocked you got more to choose from.
    the game sure does has its gripes and i'm not saying its perfect, but i'm pretty sure its not a shit game like people would suggest. 

    tl;dr
    its a repetitive, mmorpg, loot-based, third person shooter.
    it's fun if you are playing with a group of friends and you can just mess around in the dz.
    it can be fun if you like playing solo which i do most of the time since its challenging and exciting.
    so if you can't have fun, don't buy it. i sure as hell enjoy it and other people not liking it sure isn't gonna make me stop playing. hell it just means less griefers and trolls

    bbqsauce got a reaction from ApolloX75 in Divison Beta is a mess   
    some issues at launch where my character would refuse to load and what not. lots of disconnects due to server overloads right at the launch. however the character problems were resolved when i clear my division games folder where it stored my cbt character profile. 

    so on day 2 etc there wasn't much problems. sometimes the server would experience delays probably due to load.
    there were some fps dips here and there however for some reason playing on ultra at 1080 compared to low at 1080 net me a better experience.
    30-45fps on ultra compared to 120fps on low. i get fps drops to 40ish sometimes on low so the experience was really jarring.
    on ultra settings my 380 could maintain a more constant framerate with less fps drops. (i get the feeling my potato i7 965 is probably causing the fps drops. i get usage spikes up to 75-80% once in awhile while the game hovers at 50% usage)
     
    lots of eye candy on ultra settings. the game looks really good for what it is. its a beta, and before anyone says that just because its a beta they are allowed to get anyway with it. i personally did not notice much of game breaking bugs and what not. i did see a few graphical glitches like twice. most of the issues i encountered were probably server related-wise. optimisation wise idk, 40fps during the snowstorms on my 380 without proper drivers. so i think its pretty ok.
     
    now, gameplay wise. off the bat,
    if the concept of the game doesn't appeal to you, doesn't mean its shit. you can find quite a lot of things to dislike about it but it doesn't mean its shit. its just clearly not meant for you. Personally yes i find it repetitive too, but i keep in mind that there's a lot of the game yet to be made available to me. From what the game shows, its promising but we will have to wait till the full release to see if ubisoft decides to do some dick move.
    Its an mmorpg, it feels like a grindfest / constantly doing the same thing again and again.
    doesn't feel realistic if you have bullet sponge humans as enemies.
    etc etc
     
    Well as an mmo player, theres always a certain amount of grinding and depending on the type of game it can be a shit load or very little. (i'm personally someone who prefers the grind compared to being led around questing)
    you get bored of the beta so easily but the beta is probably only 10% of the game. they didn't even unlock the security wing, only 20% of the medical and tech wing is available.
    in your skill tree, talents and perks are still locked.
    equipment mods are not available as well (not weapon mods)
    crafting is also not available. 
    bullet sponge human enemies admittedly don't do well for immersion but its fine by me, however its still an rpg system, if it takes you 2-3 magazines to down someone you are doing it wrong. (you can pretty much exclude bosses from this)
    they improved quite a bit from cbt to obt but i still see people ranting about the rogue system being broken, however i find it good. if you remove it no one will go into the dz for loot anymore. you will have people killing others everywhere. my only suggestion would be that your first shot that makes you rouge, the 20s timer before you killed someone. Make it so that the tick doesn't stop when others are shooting you (and you don't shoot back). IMO this will solve so many problems. you have a chance to run away if you accidentally shot someone, instead of pretty much ending up dead since once they hit you you timer doesn't tick.
     
    if you are not an mmo type of guy, this game will probably not interest you and that's ok.
     
    just my 2cents. from someone with 30 hours in cbt and 30+hours in obt.
    The game is pretty good, not perfect but I can definitely see how it will be easily repetitive, however we should all keep in mind that a majority of the content is locked so saying the game is shit because the beta is not showing more is quite frankly immature and biased.
    So, just wait till the game is out.

    honestly speaking, there's really no need for that 10gbps service for residents except maybe a select few. i use gigabit fiber and i find it difficult to constantly saturate my network. unless you have a home with like 5 users constantly streaming 4k stuff on netflix and what not then probably this is for those people. I doubt there are that many people who can truly make use of that bandwidth
    majority of the public uses wifi so yeah its already not very useful there. on top of that the way housing is laid out wifi is pretty shit if you stay in HDB.
     
    upgrading all the hardware to make use of that speed? laptops, desktops, 10gb switches etc. man just thinking about it is off putting.
    they should spend more time improving traffic routing, customer service and on top of that, better reliability. customer service across all the telcos are abominable.

    bbqsauce got a reaction from Ex14 in Singtel to offer 10Gbps residential fibre service (Singapore News)   
    just to clarify i have nothing against competition, but frankly there is so much more they should be doing instead of aiming for higher speeds. gigabit is pretty widespread today in SG. the current pricing is affordable and its only a matter of time when more and more are switching over from broadband as their contracts end.

    Stuff like ensuring they provide the advertised speed 24/7 and not throttle speeds during peak hours. Starhub themselves have a disclaimer in their contract that as long as you receive above 60% of your contract speed everything is fine and dandy. like what.
    Don't get me started on the amount of times their service goes down and how long it takes to restore connection.
    Above all, their customer service, oh boy. I can go on for days on that. 
     
    Having reached gigabit connection as mainstream imo is all we need for the next few years. You can pretty much get gigabit from any telco at around $50 a month which is pretty affordable given our standard of living. until 4k becomes even more mainstream then maybe we might move forward towards higher speeds.
    As of now its easy to tell that most consumer stuff only caps out at gigabit speeds and anything above is really bleeding edge. I understand having this plan for business and what not. But pushing this as the "after gigabit" thing is kinda not the point, at least not right now.
    I'm not saying that this isn't useful, i just mean from the perspective of the regular consumer they won't even come close to needing it. Why not push prices down instead of bringing out higher speeds. 
     
    I imagine this was the response to the 2Gbps plan, telcos be like we need the top spot. bring out 10gbps.
    Soon M1 and starhub will follow suit. 
     
    So it goes back to my point of, there are so many areas in our telco's service that needs fixing and imo they should focus on that first.
    If, by some miracle, Starhub is able to fix their customer service, ensure reliable service and at the same time provide the advertised speeds. In my eyes they will become the top ISP. Isn't this in itself competition? Since other ISPs will definitely try to follow suit.

    like me and another member has posted its nothing all but a numbers race that only looks good on marketing material. So what if 1Gbps is commonplace? The actual performance of the world wide web is closer to what other countries experience (maybe just a slight bump) like i mentioned Youtube buffers at times even on a 500mbps plan. Gaming wise my performance over to a japan based server has dropped from a very nice constant 80ish ping to now 100-130ms complete with dropped packets. If this increase in speed brought about better performance or heck just better equipment to us or even their back end to all its services then yes i wouldnt mind the race. But in reality thia is just a marketing stunt, with no real world benefit outside of anything hosted locally.

    What ISP are you on?

    I used to be on Singtel 500mbps and yes WAN show/Twitch was unwatchable for me. Latency to my US game server was horrible.
    I whole heartedly, agree with you that we don't need 500mbps to watch Youtube or Twitch and we shouldn't have such issues.

    I got fed up with that and switched to VQ and I haven't had any speed issues since.(barring the network downtime they faced)
    From Twitch 720p being an issue, I could watch WAN Show in Source.

    In this, we as consumers have to vote with our wallet on the Quality of Service that they provide.
    This would come down to each ISP's Peering agreements and capacity that they provision for their customers.

    And that's where competition comes in and the ISPs will react to how we vote.
    Unfortunately, most people are tied to their Multi Line discounts and don't like the hassle involved  with switching ISPs.

    i'm sorry but that statement is outright wrong.
    you wouldn't want anything remotely near any flying aircraft ever. There is a reason they do sweeps of runways for debris. even a small rock can cause harm to an engine. Runways can even be shut down if there is known FOD on the ground.
     
    FOD the size of the drone getting sucked into the intake literally means the engine is gone. Worse than bird into an engine. They literally need to take down the engine if even a rock gets into the engine. (from my experience being in the airforce. I have seen rock damage all the fins of the turbine.)
    Even if the drone doesn't get sucked into the turbines, hitting the plane at takeoff/landing speeds can still damage different portions of the aircraft.
    What makes you think a bird strike would do more damage while the drone does no damage?
    A birdstrike even if it doesn't hurt the aircraft is still a pain in the ass. Have you ever seen bird lodged in the wheel well of a plane? well i have, more precisely minced meat of a bird all over the wheel well. 
    Similarly a drone can strike the wheel well, break off into god knows how many pieces. Maybe get lodged into some landing gear mechanism? What if the gear can't extend after retracting in flight? Or even shear off some hydraulic and electrical cables? so many things can go wrong, not to mention even if nothing happens, the amount of checks needed to ensure not a single bit of the drone is left on the aircraft/runway is present.
     
    Furthermore, if the tower knows of this drone in the airspace, they will more than likely halt all traffic in and out of the airport. Now how much damage will that cause? hmm
    On top of lives being at stake, the amount of time and money is costly. Its no laughing matter. especially when you are in a tin can flying in the air and something goes wrong, there is only 1 way out and that is down.

Or even shear off some hydraulic and electrical cables? so many things can go wrong, not to mention even if nothing happens, the amount of checks needed to ensure not a single bit of the drone is left on the aircraft/runway is present.
     
    Furthermore, if the tower knows of this drone in the airspace, they will more than likely halt all traffic in and out of the airport. Now how much damage will that cause? hmm
    On top of lives being at stake, the amount of time and money is costly. Its no laughing matter. especially when you are in a tin can flying in the air and something goes wrong, there is only 1 way out and that is down.

    bbqsauce got a reaction from Bensemus in AMD accuses BAPCo and Intel of cheating with Sysmark benchmarks   
    asking AMD to do such a leap is pretty much impossible with 1 iteration.
    Its a new architecture and catching up to haswell level is already pretty decent in my mind. sure they still got a long ways to go, but they can't just flip the table like that.
    Lets be honest here, how much of a real noticeable difference is haswell vs skylake anyway? Its there but its not like the early days anymore. Marginal improvements per generation. Even a sandy bridge cpu is still pretty relevant today. Heck i'm still using my i7-965ee.
     
    We gotta be realistic here, if you expect that much you will just be disappointed. Pretty sure Intel could've squished AMD anytime they wanted to in the past few years, but they dont want to do that.
