    The entire video and it's context revolve around the CPP and it's censorship of video games. I'm not sure how you expect to have a conversation about the video and avoid that topic.

    Skipple reacted to Dtx1 in Linus should stop his $GME "Investment"   
    Okay guys, we all had fun at the WAN Show right now, especially seeing Linus squeal. He thought he'd be in for $10K at most and could ride it out as a meme. $50K is not chump change and who knows if this publicity stunt he just accidentally did couldn't be construed as market manipulation.

    I don't think it's funny anymore and I would accept a "OK, I fucked up" from Linus, followed by a more reasonable donation to a charity. I don't want to see LTT or Linus get F-ed by some oversight body he didn't know existed and I would still enjoy his content and believe in his integrity if he bowed out of this mess. There are real jobs, real people, real lives involved and as much as i want to stick it to the big hedgefond guys i don't find it funny to see LTT or Linus get sucked into this.

    Skipple reacted to sowon in best under $200 sim wheel, bang for the buck, and dont even fucking mention g920, or g29, they are loud and dont come with a good pedal set   
    Obligatory "I'm a Logitech G920 owner and I've had no issues" statement aside, a few things to note about the Logitech G920 and the Thrustmaster TX.
     
    The Logitech G920/29 produces 2.2Nm of torque; The Thrustmaster TMX produces 2Nm of torque.
    source
     
    The Logitech Shifter is an optional extra, you do not need to buy it, unless the simulator you're playing on has cars with H-shifters, otherwise the paddle shifters used for sequential semi-automatic cars will suffice.
     
    I've got my money on that you're likely using too high of a force feedback setting. This can also depend on what game you are playing. Simcade games like Project Cars 2 will definitely rock you out of the wheel on 100% force feedback, while other simulation games like Assetto Corsa Competizione are more lenient on how aggressive the overall force feedback profile is.
    Arguably, your final point about the G920 being too violent would contradict how you said the G920 produces less feedback... Unless you really despise the gear-driven force feedback system of the G920 for some reason.
     
    I feel like you're highly dismissing the G920 and other gear-driven racing wheels due to your soiled experience with the G920 which I still feel is wholely undeserved. You've given no real critcism towards the wheel apart from "It's too violent and doesn't produce enough force feedback, it's also loud", which have lacked anecdotal evidence apart from "My friend owns one and I used it for a while".
     
    Reality is, gear-driven racing wheels are what you will come to expect from this $150-$250 price point, with the Thrustmaster being the only real belt-hybrid I have come across from a few minutes of research with your given pricepoint.
     
    Admittedly I am a little disappointed you find the G920 to have let you down as it has, but I'd highly recommend you give it another shot, and properly configure force feedback and get to know the wheel better. You've already tried it, and therefor you would be able to know the wheel and the pedals with a few more laps around the track.
    That being said, you also mentioned your friend also owns a Thrustmaster TX so... The choice is really in your ballpark. You have experience with both Logitech and Thrustmaster wheels, reality is it's up to you to decide which you want for yourself, but like I said earlier, I feel like you're letting your emotions cloud your judgement regarding the Logitech G920.
     
    However, I can understand that if you truly despise the Logitech wheels, I won't force them down your throat.
     
    For further reading on Thrustmaster wheels, I've found some posts from other forums that detail what you can expect if you choose a Thrustmaster wheel, and why torque generally does not matter, as well as generally just further reading into which wheel you want.

    Skipple reacted to Nayr438 in Apple is in a position to take it ALL(PC,Server,Embedded)   
    Benchmarking completely different architectures on different Operating Systems is a bad performance comparison.
    There are way to many factors that alter those results. For instance you can run the same benchmark on Linux and Windows on the exact same hardware and get vastly different results.
     
    The chances of Apple taking over any market they are not already in is fairly slim and probably not the primary target. In the server space, Apples products are far to expensive and not user serviceable. This could result in even more expensive repairs and more downtime in the server space. In terms of DIY, that's one thing Apple wants to prevent.
     
    We also have no idea what Apple may be giving up to obtain the performance they do on these chips.

    Yes, excluding the differences, there are no differences.
     
     
    Why? Why even test CS:GO at all, frankly. Yes a lot of people play it; a lot of people play Candy Crush or used to, so? In both the cases the hardware is irrelevant at this point, everything just crushes it. It's more a meme than a test.
