  1. I dont think anyone really cares, the real GNU/linux problem is not the UI, or the goddamn "new" wallpapers every other new distro has.
  2. Not anymore, the cost of building new fabs, and R&D for new process node outweights the little gain in lower production cost per chip from stacking more chips per wafer, at least thats what i understand from various tech sites. But if you actually increase core count/transistors count per chip you might end up with chips of similar size as previous node hence your cost for a similar sized chip will be much higher, which is most likely the reason we still dont have 6-8 core i7's at 3-400$ mark and 6-8 core i5 at 2-300$. But im no expert might be wrong.
  3. Actually the biggest problem with the UI is that they do not allow people and real UI designer artists create their own themes and share them freely, that and the fact that this "UI Update" is going to be for UWP alone and thats it. Imagine how terrible and frustrating it will be when you open some new UI modern UWP app with transparency do to whatever, and then go into old Explorer.exe to search for some file... the impact of that experience will trigger my OCD over and over again until ill break something. Windows 7 is unnacceptable at this point,the UI is great, but installing stuff so
  4. Please use linux, please use linux.... fuck, its windows...
  5. The costs arent the problem, Intel is, they have no competition as we know, hence they can do whatever with prices. Like the recent i3 7350k dual core 200$, wtf dual core 200$. AMD is like "moar cores for cheaper". Intel does the opposite.
  6. Just FYI, all intel cpu's that are from same slice of wafer or binned, i7 non extreme, i5 ,i3 , pentiums and maybe even celerons, can run hyperthreading if intel decided to switch it on inside the cpu. The only reason they dont is either the chip is broken in that regard or most commonly intel has no competition so they turn it off and sell as dual/quad core without HT for less performance to convince people to buy i7's with HT, just because they can.
  7. Honestly i dont care about programming for such a weak gpu. If you invest your time learning all of that, at least program for a true GPU like pascals,vega or prof grade quadro/radeon, such that when you give it some "real work" it actually finishes this century. I honestly dont care about "OMG my GPU dieded and i cant fix it without iGPU" scenario, old entry level gt 210,410, 710 or whatever sell for scrap change used, if you are a enthusiast/high end PC gamer or developer(especially dev)and you dont have an old gpu layin around in your nerd stash, boi you are doing something wrong.
  8. Get a better monitor 24inches minimum at 2K resolution 1440p/2560x1440, or 120/144hz 1080p, dont ask just do it. Get a bigger SSD, if you install games on it for fast load times its not enough, get at least 480GB, a 275GB SSD gets capped with windows + 4 modern games (usually 40-50 GB in size). Get a closed loop watercooler if you plan on overclocking, even if you dont its a nice quiet addition to have and it removes the CPU heat very nicely away from motherboard vrm's, ram and graphics card sitting right next to cpu. Closed loop water coolers are pretty cheap on newegg USA, it would
  9. Even if its true i completely disagree with such decisions. If intel wants to sell APU's they need to make a separate line of APU's outside of high end cpu's. Its mindblowing that they still sell i5/i7 for enthusiasts with fucking iGPU, get fucking lost, instead of that extra useless silicon that i will never use put 2 core's and more cache extra on i5's/i7 7600k/7700k FOR THE SAME PRICE, else fuck of intel. If you want a real APU get one from AMD A10/A8 whatever, it has great graphics.
  10. Its called CoolLaboratory Liquid Pro/Ultra its been known for years https://www.amazon.com/Coollaboratory-Liquid-Thermal-Compound-Syringe/dp/B001PE5XAC
  11. Please create a rule against click bait titles i so fucking hate these threads they are top of the shitposting. 10 quintilion asteroid and collapsed economy f you and your senzationalist news this has nothing to do with reality, unless NASA itself announces a plan to bring the asteroid close to earth and actually mine it stop posting fake titles. Not to mention such an operation would be meaningless since the cost of operation would outweight that of the materials which would devalue quickly. Also you cant bring an asteroid down to eart without burning in atmosphere and causing a mas
