  1. You do know the 64-bit versions of windows does 32-bit emulation since 32-bit hardware doesn't exactly exist in wider consumer space hence making 32-bit versions of windows a waste of resources to develop and up keep, and if a business has mission critical software that only runs in 32-bit mode I can assure you those businesses aren't upgrading the os it runs on (unless it's linux) to lose that functionality or corrupting any databases that reside in it. They most likely will run that software in a VM or try their hardest to keep some spare hardware that they can transplant the needed parts to
  2. Oh look microsoft, here's something decent you could take out apples book going forward. I legit don't know why they still have 32-bit windows 10 even though they said there wasn't going to be one
  3. Generally it's more practical for a business to have hardware to run some piece of custom software so they end up with those expensive support contracts, whereas us consumers are expected to change systems every few years since 3-5 years of us is a fairly long time for consumer pc hardware, but I'm look forward to the day where we don't have to upgrade so often and hardware support is a lot better on the windows side of things. Apple nor microsoft can touch the hardware support of linux if we're going to be totally honest about it. I know that why I said they can and not they wi
  4. In my experience Dell can support hardware for over 10 years, IF you're a registered Dell Business partner. At my first job I've had to do services on legacy machines that were running windows 95 and 98 on some ancient optiplexs' that still got support from Dell but that comes at a cost. Not sure if HP and the likes have a similar thing with their business users.

      I used to really like Samsung phones. But the company has started to make a turn for the worse in the past year or two. The continually rising prices and lack of a headphone jack, microSD card slot, or charger in the box is a huge turnoff for me. I'm definitely going to need a new phone soon, but I have no idea what it's going to be. It becomes harder and harder every year to find a phone that still has all the features I want.

    He most definitely won't give me a raise, heck he doesn't even want to pay for overtime but he'll gladly charge the client for it tho.

    These are classes I was doing before I started working here and they're long after working hours, but he somehow thinks making threats about employment to me is somehow supposed to scare me. He's gonna get told suck it regardless. Funny thing is my classes would help with what he's doing but since the last guy resigned after doing the special certs he only has one person to qualified to do certain stuff. (Hint: everyone keeps quitting becasue of his shit attitude.)
  11. I'm convinced that I'm doomed to work for stupid people. My boss wants me to drop my classes that I paid for out of my pocket to do some certification on the premise that there's no guarantee that I'll stay when I've completed it. The trainee before me did all their certifications and then resigned and is currently working at another firm with said certifications. Make it make sense lol

      If boss wants more of your time, boss needs to pay more. If I had a boss that wanted me to drop by classed, I would need a major incentive like a promotion and a raise, especially if I paid out of pocket.

      Haha, then honestly it sounds like you're sharing too much personal information with your workplace.

      They have no need to know what you do in your free time.

  13. One dual rank dimm is equivalent to two single rank dimms of the same speed and timings Yes in some cases single rank dimms will OC way better but board and cpu imc still plays a key factor there and the quality on the chips on either ram set up
  14. Welp now my board is dead

  15. So I  got the case.... This thing is fucking solid, jeez. Only disappointment is that it's not the black out edition like they had listed. Ah well black fans and spray paint it is.

  16. Think I shall buy a RX 5700XT as a stop gap til stock gets normal.... Just to figure out what CPU to buy

  17. Okay, so I got the case but here's the catch.... it has a TG panel (fuckkkkkkkkkkkk) now I have to pray it doesn't shatter in shipping.

     

    Now I have to decide what ryzen CPU and graphics card to buy. If anyone has any recommendations for 1440p 144hz gpus I'm all ears cause the lack of stock is real

      @PCGuy_5960I have the cards I wanna buy in mind but none are in stock lol and I'm not sure if I wanna buy last get nvidia card. It's more of a do I wanna get scalped or buy a 1650 and wait on stock

      Misread the last part, lmao. Yeah, buying GPUs sucks right now. Maybe look around in the used market in case you find a deal on a 2080 Ti or something, other than that, it's entirely up to nvidia/amd to fix the horrible supply.

      @PCGuy_5960second hand market is a big nope for me... Knowing my shitty luck I'd buy  card today and it's dead a month into using it

  18. I would really love to get my hands on a define r6 blackout edition with solid panels.... Why is this case so hard to find 😭

  19. Finds the case I wanted on ebay but it's a bid... Wins bid and pays fees..... Seller cancels for no reason.... REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  20. Trying to get my hands on a define r6 blackout edition.... Sold out everywhere I've checked q.q

  21. Resources as in talent to get it done properly. We already know hos AMD's drivers go, they start off horrendous then get better with each revision but seeing this is a step up from RDNA1 I'm glad to see there aren't a shit-ton of bugs or maybe that might be due to the low quantity that are actually in the hands of people who would use them and not scalpers. Yeah I wish they would update it already, it's really a pain how slow it is compared to intel's and AMD's own software.
  22. They probably can but as someone else said earlier in the thread, AMD's driver division probably doesn't have the resources to make most of that feature with software only, though it would be interesting to see how they do it either way.
  23. I'd say much like asynchronous compute, dedicated hardware would perform better than leaving it up to drivers which would incur a lot of overhead
