    unfortunately that's just the inevitable direction it'll go for small time devs in china. which is frustrating because now they have to fit into the template and only make retellings of historical fantasies and mythologies, just to do work in game dev there. or clone international games to cater to the chinese audience
     
    it's the stagnation of explorative culture i'm more concerned about; anything else (like audience reach) would definitely reflect on that.

    Well, just to clarify, those who choose Chinese Simplified language can be from Singapore and Malaysia, because we do use Simplified Chinese.
     
    Anyway, for China gamers, most of them only cares for MMORPG or any form of online multiplayer games.

    There were several parts that bothered me and I tried looking away and listen to the video but it didn't help. I honestly zoned out as I was going into the seizure and only remember bits and pieces. I'm not inclined to re-watch the video to find the exact spots. I do know that I had to look away when they were testing the contrast and playing Doom. I should have left the room or turned it off but hindsight is 20/20.

    seee the state im in nooow reacted to porina in Why the Perseverance Rover computer is so "outdated"   
    On a similar note someone had asked why better cameras aren't used in space. The short answer was that the limit is in the data path of getting that data back to Earth. They only have a certain amount so generating much more than that doesn't help. Also there was a case of, they have a camera and know it works.

    The rover mostly just has to collect data. All of the heavy processing will happen on Earth.
     
    And yeah, it does have different requirements:
    Be as reliable as possible Use as little power as possible Be resistant to space, radiation etc. Using bleeding edge technology is no good if you need something that is ultra reliable, because you haven't had decades to fix all the kinks. And smaller process nodes are much more susceptible to stuff like radiation and high energy particles. You don't have a magnetic shield on Mars like you do on Earth.

    Summary
    Today, Samsung announced that its new HBM2-based memory has an integrated AI processor that can push out (up to) 1.2 TFLOPS of embedded computing power, allowing the memory chip itself to perform operations that are usually reserved for CPUs, GPUs, ASICs, or FPGAs.

    My thoughts
    Well, this is interesting. Memory that can increase the performance of a system without increasing power consumption is an amazing thing, This will be a great thing for, especially, Data center applications where power consumption is an important factor and if (when) this eventually will make it's way to other consumer stuff, I think it would be great. But as with any new technology, we'll have to see how it holds up in the real world, its cost-effectivness and its usefulness.

    seee the state im in nooow reacted to porina in NVIDIA pretends to care about gamers.   
    They say they're targeting something in the ethash algorithm so it remains to be seen if it may be triggered by unrelated compute use cases. My current understanding would be that something like folding shouldn't trigger it, but we wont know for sure until someone tries it and reports on it.

    seee the state im in nooow reacted to GoodBytes in Windows 10 March 2021 Update - Here is everything you need to know - Coming soon   
    It's that time of the year again, Microsoft will soon release (estimated for a March release), a new version of Windows 10.
    Codename 21H1 the new update will feature.... well.... nothing really. Normally, they are new features, but this time, they are absolutely minor.
     
    The update contains mostly just bug fixes. This is the whole list of new things from Microsoft:
    https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2021/02/17/introducing-the-next-feature-update-to-windows-10-version-21h1/
     
    The update should be small in size and update quickly.
     
     
    So, what's the deal? And what's next? Is it all over?
    No. Microsoft has been focused almost entirely on its new OS: Windows 10X.
    Windows 10X is NOT aimed at replacing Windows 10. It's a new OS on the side of Windows 10. Windows 10X is different in a lot of ways to Windows 10 from the core level, all the way to the user experience. Its initial goals were to be the OS of choice for new form factor devices, like foldable screens devices, dual screen ones, and whatever crazy contraption we make next. This has changed to not only be that, but also be an OS for very powered devices and compete directly with ChromeOS.
     
    Why ChromeOS matter to Microsoft?
    As reported earlier, ChromeOS is now the second most used OS after Windows. Microsoft needs to have an answer before it loses first place, as more and more people need are sufficiently meat via their web browser.
     
    Why a special OS? Why not Windows 10 on them?
    Windows 10 biggest issue is legacy support. It can't be dropped, else most of your programs and games will not work. Sadly, Microsoft is cursed carrying this legacy on its back, for potentially forever. Windows 10X dropped all legacy support. It only works with new, modern technologies which pushes GPU acceleration and is more light weight and secure (at the expense of flexibility/power). No more explorer.exe, no more Shell32, all legacy, all gone. This end results are expected to deliver an OS that provides a smoother experience on low powered, low cost, laptops/tablets while providing very good battery life. 
     
    Windows 10X is expected too only support: PWA and UWP apps only. With the exception of Office and the new Chromium Edge web browser, and that is because work has/being done to those apps to make it possible (details are unknown, but from my own, personal, understanding, it is integrating some UWP elements and some stuff is done on the OS side).
     
    We do know that Win32 support running in a sandboxed environment is something that Microsoft is working on for Windows 10X, but leaks suggests that it won't be a feature coming out on time at release, and based on current, in development, builds of Windows 10X that has this feature, running a Win32 makes the OS load all the legacy stuff, and turn the system to a total crawl fest (basically as if you installed normal Windows 10 on the system). So, definitely a feature for better spec'ed devices, and understandable why Microsoft is not rushing this one.
     
    The focus, at least right now, for Windows 10X is to be a competitor to ChromeOS, so 
     
    Ok ok, so what's next for Windows 10?
    Ah, this will be exciting. Project name is Sun Valley. A big project, which we don't know officially what it is. From rumors only, it can be summarized as dropping Metro Design from Windows 8, and going full in with Fluent Design. This is supported by leaks from Microsoft showing screenshots in help documentations and marketing materials where things don't match exactly what we have right now. Like one of the more notable change is what Windows 10X already has: rounded corners on windows and on many UI elements. Right now, we have hints of this in the new Edge web browser and in some built-in apps. Of course, as expected, Win32 apps and specially those using a custom GUI framework will probably be left out as there is nothing that can be done unless they are updated to use WinUI 3.0 which basically give UWP GUI elements to Win32 programs. Based on observation on how the Windows dev world works, don't have your hopes up, unless there is massive line of people in front of the software makers with briefcase of money willing to buy a new version of their app just for this feature, and MAYBE, just maybe, it might make it to the lowest of lowest priority in some forgotten backlog of backlogs... it's not Apple world here, unless there is multi-million-dollar business case to be made, it won't be done. Competition is low for many apps, and its users tend to not like change and stick with what they know. Heck, people use a video/music player that looks like Windows Media Player from Windows 98 because that is what they grew up with. Anyways.

    seee the state im in nooow reacted to porina in Why don’t they make a low profile gpu with a powerful mobile GPU?   
    Seeing some misunderstanding of hardware scaling in this thread.
     
    Generally speaking, both CPUs and GPUs run much more power efficiently at lower clocks than higher clocks. A given % reduction in power will result in a smaller % reduction in performance. For best efficiency, you actually want the biggest core you can get, and run it as slow as possible. Due to the workloads, GPUs are a case where going wider still generally scales well, unlike with CPUs.
     
    Looking it up a 3070 mobile is apparently: (EDIT: these mobile numbers are different than the nvidia page shot in post below, and may be because they are one actual implementation but doesn't represent the whole range. It is within the range and good enough for a hypothetical exercise like this)
    5120 cores, 1110 base, 1560 boost, 1750 mem, 115W TBP.
    Desktop version:
    5888 cores, 1500 base, 1725 boost, 1750 mem, 220W TBP.
     
    Overall, the mobile version is about 79% the peak performance of the desktop version, at just over half the board power. Generally speaking, higher performance desktop products run well into the less efficient zone. Backing off a bit improves efficiency a lot. However if we start at the lower power and try to reduce it further to say 75W, you'll probably see closer to linear scaling there since it will be on a much flatter part of the curve. Not everything will scale, especially more so if we do more extreme power shifts, but I'd estimate a "75W 3070" would be about half the performance of the full power one.
     
    The mobile 3070 is pretty close to the desktop 3060, the latter having 170W TBP. That's in part due to tradeoff between cores and clocks mentioned already, although binning may also be a contributing factor. Anyway, for a typical desktop component buyer, would you want to pay (desktop) 3070 price to get (desktop) 3060 performance? Or just buy the cheaper 3060 at higher power? For those who really do want lower power cards, setting a lower power limit on a more expensive model is about the most realistic way of going about it. This in itself wont be enough to eliminate the requirement of the PCIe power connector.
     
    Cooling of a low power "75W" 3070 would be very easy. That amount of power is not great, and the relatively big die give a nice area for contact. It would probably be easier to cool than an AMD 75W GPU for example.
