    WereCatf got a reaction from broccoli27 in Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB supports Ray Tracing??? (GPU-Z)   
    NVIDIA released CUDA-based ray-tracing for Pascal-series cards. It is NOT fast enough to use for gaming, it's really slow on Pascal, but technically it kinda-sorta works.

    WereCatf got a reaction from ZFSinmylungs in OpenGL vs. Vulkan   
    None of the graphics APIs are about image-quality, they are about features and speed. You can get exactly the same quality with either API.

    WereCatf got a reaction from tuk1maar in Why soundbar exists?   
    Because they are. There is no explaining taste, mate.
    No one's telling you to do jack shit. Soundbars are for people who want them.
    If you don't like surround-sound, then you don't. I don't care. I like surround-sound and to me it does make 100% sense, it adds to the soundscape and when used well, it can really set the scene in a way that's just not possible with stereo-sound.

    WereCatf got a reaction from tuk1maar in Why soundbar exists?   
    Looks, for example. One, sleek-looking soundbar looks far cleaner than those ugly speakers of yours. Soundbars also often have a bunch of connectors on them, including HDMI, so it's really easy to plug consoles and TVs and the likes to them, ie. easy-of-use.
    For many of us, yes.
    Because if something is happening behind you, then the sound does come from behind you. I mean...duh?

    WereCatf got a reaction from FakeKGB in Freeware category   
    What's there to discuss? A list of freeware software is not the same thing as a discussion, and people just making new threads with something along the lines of "This InsertAppHere is cool and free!" would very quickly make the category both uselessly unwieldy and cluttered and it still wouldn't induce any sort of discussion.

    WereCatf got a reaction from Mr.SeriousCat in The creators of Humble Bundle are suing Valve for monopolistic behavior in a class action lawsuit   
    You keep referring to rabid fanboys and similar things, you keep bashing Steam/Valve, and it all seems like you just have an axe to grind. It's hard to take anything you say seriously with such an attitude.
     
    For one, why are rabid fanboys and such even relevant? Literally everything attracts those kinds, including the other storefronts, but they're all in tiny minority and not a driving force here. Secondly, you seem to be insinuating that people are boycotting EGS just simply because it's a competitor to Steam. Sure, for the most rabid fanboys that may be true, but for the rest of us that's not the reason. I mean, if that was the reason, then why would many of us still support e.g. GOG, which is also a competitor? No, there's more to it, but I'm not sure if you just don't want to see it or if you don't even understand it.

    WereCatf got a reaction from LAwLz in Suggestion to add telemetry in Audacity GitHub page meets huge backlash   
    Mmmno. They've always had to vet patches, this is not new in any way. The issue is that universities were expected to be more trustworthy than others and thus patches coming from universities specifically -- not everyone -- were let through with less scrutiny.
    Of course there is. E.g. many UI-design improvements come from telemetry -- knowing what features get used the most, which ones get used the least, how long it takes users to find their way into this or that feature and so on and so forth.

    WereCatf got a reaction from waterjug in corona virus   
    It's only hysteric alarmists and journalists looking for clicks that keep making claims about an incoming pandemic, that's for sure. I have a hard time imagining some disease managing to spread worldwide and killing even just 100k people with modern protocols. I'm no virologist, but 10k worldwide deaths seems to me like something that just about might be possible at most.
     
    Granted, 10k would still be a lot of people.

    WereCatf got a reaction from Virus__ in What if you hooked up a turbo (or two) to some rtx 3080s   
    If you wanted over-the-top, just plain retarded cooling, you'd sink the cards in mineral oil or similar and then cool the oil with e.g. refrigerators or peltiers to below zero.
     
    That said, it's both a retarded idea and not interesting, either.
    No.

    WereCatf got a reaction from Hassan170 in The creators of Humble Bundle are suing Valve for monopolistic behavior in a class action lawsuit   
    That's such a massive oversimplification that I don't agree on the point still standing.
    Valve runs their own servers Given the size of games, especially AAA-titles, they need absolutely massive amounts of storage They also allow people to save screenshots and upload videos and all sorts of other content of their own, which increases storage-needs They have their own CDNs all over the world They consume insane amounts of bandwidth at all times and, as you might be aware, that doesn't come cheap They have their own, entirely free streaming-service, which also consumes bandwidth and storage They have their workshop, which also consumes bandwidth and storage The Remote Play and Remote Play Together - stuff goes through their Steam Network if all parties are behind strict NAT and that consumes massive amounts of bandwidth -- they are proxying all the data through their own VPN-servers for no fee on the customer Voice-chat in and out of games also goes through their Steam Network, if needed. While it's obviously a lot less bandwidth, it is still an additional drain Ask anyone who actually runs something that consumes massive amounts of bandwidth and you'll very quickly find out that it does not come cheap.
     
    The software could use quite a bit of work, but it's not like they haven't been doing anything at all with it. What they've been doing as of late has been more about designing a good AI-like system for recommendations, trying to find a way of getting the less-easily-found games out and about, giving them some much-needed visibility and so on -- it's all entirely non-flashy stuff and uninteresting for most people, but I tend to pay attention to such things.

    WereCatf got a reaction from WereCat in What would happen if I put 2 non identical nvidia GPUs in a pc? (could I use it for video encoding when I stream?)   
    You could, but you'd get worse performance, not better, and you'd also get worse quality. This is to say, it'd be pointless.

    Google sure seems to say that that's a R7 265 2GB - model, but that VGA - port looks like it doesn't belong there. Maybe it's some sort of an OEM - model or something? I have no idea how OEM - models of old Radeons look like since I use NVIDIA - cards.

    WereCatf got a reaction from Kilrah in Old IPhone 4s Bloated Battery Question?   
    There isn't really any reason why it would've stopped working, unless the ballooned-up battery bent the motherboard enough to loosen solder-joints on it. That is to say, there's a pretty good chance it's still perfectly functional and just needs a new battery.
