  1. I'm curious to see how this will work out on a Surface pro with LTE. Namely will it have drivers for the LTE modem. I will give it a try this weekend and let ya'll know. Of course IF you install this on bare metal ... make an IMAGE of your drives partitions FIRST. This way if it borks your computer you can just restore that image and it'll be like it never happened. Barring that somehow installing an OS causes magic smoke to rise from the computer.
  2. Since it is not what I was hoping for I just hope it has WSL2 or better Linux baked into the core. Yeah it would just be a VM but a system that would allow one to run whatever software we want would be awesome.
  3. The real question is ... how many games will be totally broken by this upgrade? Upgrading from one major version of Windows to another ALWAYS breaks compatibility to some degree. On the bright side maybe we'll see GTA 6 soon.
  4. Congratulations on your first build. I've only built one recent computer, but put together my share in the 90's and early 00's before I went 100% laptops for quite some time. The build I am using now posted on the first time out. That was likely as much due to having done careful research before I even bought the parts to ensure everything would work together. The details of building had changed a lot. SATA SSD's and NVME VS IDE HDD's PCI-E VS PCI or ISA slots. The fundamentals are the same. That said to be honest more recent computers don't have jumpers and dip switches th
  5. Yes. I am pretty sure an RTX 3080 Tie will be on sale if it isn't already. If I were a dude I'd buy it and wear it ... heck I might buy it and wear it anyway. Dudes have a lot of strange things on ties. It and socks are one of the places where a guy can show personality in an otherwise conservative suit.
  6. Watched and re watched this really great old anime I somehow missed when it first came to the US.  Basically it is set during what must be the apocalypse  about fallen angels sent to Earth to fight ghost.  Angels who act more like demons in every way other than full filling the mission they were sent by God to full fill.  It's hard to explain. The ending song of it is deceptively spiritual sounding... while also being stripperific.  

     

    This is just stuck in my head and won't get out. 

     

    If you haven't checked this one out do so it's pretty interesting.  It's like what a PowerPuff girls reboot should be.  You know like the girls grew from being Hannah Montana into the Miley Cyrus of 2-5 years ago.  It's like an anime thats made to look western in the way that Princess Robot Bubblegum is western animation made to look like Anime.

      I don't even have funimation ;(

      If you don't mind subtitles it's accessible out there.  *  Although the Funimation Dub this time is kinda special.  It's not really faithful to the original dialog ... but more to the spirit of it.  The original Japanese director helped them re-write it and edit in as much raunchy English swearing as possible to teach the people at his studio more English swear words.    Even subbed it is pretty enjoyable. 

      *At websites you should ... never go to.  Just like back in the day we never passed around VHS tapes of unreleased anime that had been copied and copied and copied.

      I meant more like funimation isn't a thing here :(, VHS tapes of leaked materials ahh and CDs with ripped music of unreleased stuff sounding low quality is also a good one

      Oh.  Well I don't know then.  Various bootleg websites might be the only option.  

  7. A this reminds me of China's all new, totally not copied, indigenously developed stealth bomber. You know this one.
  8. For me the very VERY first... was when I was under four. https://spectrum.ieee.org/tech-history/heroic-failures/the-texas-instruments-994-worlds-first-16bit-computer All I remember of it was playing a Star Trek video game on it. The second one.. the one I really learned how to use was a Coleco Adam computer. The Adam was the computer. The Coleco was a video game console which would plug into the computer or which could work without the computer. It also came with an impact printer which was where the power supply was. As such it was a pretty good gaming experience
  9. @AlexTheGreatish would you be interested in doing a video about the LISA mission and its technology OR just talking to us about how you make videos. LISA stands for Laser Interferometer Space Antenna. We (I am a TINY part of it) are going to do the same thing as LIGO but using a space probe. As I write this I am on Zoom with our social media group and the scientist in the collaboration they are so lost when it comes to making videos and social media. We are talking about how to build a social media platform and sounding so very lost. You guys make videos about what could be bori
  10. Tried the noble experiment of using VFIO to pass a GPU through to a windows VM for gaming.  It works quite well up to trying to actually play the game.  Lots of hitching. This is with the upgrades I've made over time to a computer I built a year ago.  Considering what the OLD 1080 I used for this experiment is worth  now it really does not feel like I am using some baller 3000 dollar computer.   But apparently that is what these parts would be work now.

    The thing holding it back is that processor. Once the 8C 16T parts come out I will try this again.  Until then dual system will have to do.  Although it is kinda nice still having a windows setup of some kind, in a VM that I can use as backup in case my other system breaks down.

      QEMU/KVM and VFIO can be a lot of fun but you do want ample CPU & RAM. You're basically turning your desktop into a hypervisor server.

       

      You can tune the performance by enabling hugepages and doing CPU pinning so the active cores stay on the same NUMA node & the cores managing the virtualization aren't used by the VM itself. Good for high load applications. Might smooth things out. 😉

      Once I have a 5700g I may do just that.   Then I'll have Cores and threads to spare.  I can do Linux native productivity, streaming, and lite gaming on 4 C 4T just fine.  I can do Windows Gaming on 2C 4T just fine.  So dedicated 3-3 C and 4-6 T to windows should be plenty.  Plus they'll be newer more advanced cores. 

  11. I'd say that they can't integrate a sort of little RDNA GPU with a Zen CPU but they did it custom with a Zen2 CPU architecture for a console. It could be a matter of limitations of the socket. In a console everything can be custom. On PC their standard needs to change to support that. A It's a 5700G not a 5800G . BUT it has the same 8C 16 T processor but with half the cache. So one gives up some cache for having a GPU. You know a GPU which exist.
  12. I know I have a 1080* .... but a lot of people don't. In fact there are those who would say those of us who have a 1080 or 1080 Ti or better we should just not complain. *Used with a laptop in a TB3 enclosure not my desktop daily driver which has a 1050 just for using CUDA for research purposes.
  13. Not really. If one goes back to when AMD first used the term APU. The idea was to have a heterogenous system architecture. In which the APU would run code that can be accelerated by a GPU on the internal GPU. Being cost effective is a bonus. As I understand it these 8 Vega CU's on the new processors are better than the 11 of them on the past processors. Considering what I have been able to get out of a 3200G I am very much looking forward to this. If I didn't need CUDA specifically I might not even bother with a dGPU.
  14. Summary Ryzen 5000 APU's are being released to DIY in August Ryzen 7 5700g will be $359us 5600g will be $259us. Quotes My thoughts Praise be to Allah! That was my first response. Finally. As of now anyone wanting to build a PC for gaming in this environment should wait until August. I personally have been waiting for a new APU for my Stimulus money build since this time last year. 8 C 16T CPU is very respectable for most people, doing most things. Plus this comes with the very excellent Vega graphics which under L
  15. QNX does not need to run on phones ... there are so many in car entertainment systems for it to run on. Linux without an open platform for people to hack on would be dead.
