    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Mark Kaine in Reddit user discovers msi scalping own 3080s on ebay for massive profits   
    MSI's response is basically an "Error let them do it". Once they had stock what else could they do but price gouge right?  🤣

    Where is a statement from the police? Where is a statement from their boss? Why should I believe these people?
     
    I have to assume Kotaku did not bother to verify any of these claims because this is just a hit piece to get clicks and champion people who share their politics.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from Maury Sells Wigs in HELP: Should I get Cyberpunk 2077 for PS5, or my older PC?   
    Well your GPU is definitely considerably worse than what the PS5 will have. Your CPU is probably roughly equivalent, better single thread but less cores. I'd expect PS5 to run games at higher detail level and framerates. 
     
    Though with your modern CPU, the $500 PS5 cost could be used to replace that GPU with a 3070, which would spank the PS5.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from JabroniBaloney in EA no longer banning cheaters in Battlefield   
    For the last few months I have seen the same cheaters in Battlefield 1. Same names over and over and over again. Looking at Steam reviews it also is a massive problem with Battlefield V. I have reported them every time I come across them, which now is basically every time I play. Yet they do not get banned. I have seen cheaters running full aimbot, with 99%+ headshot rate, go from rank 1 to rank 150, logging well over 100 hours of full on aimbotting, and I am guessing at least 500 reports by players, yet nothing has been done. They are not banned.
     
    It is my belief EA has defunded the enforcement division that handled this. I suspect this happened when they stopped production on new patches for BFV. I strongly recommend not buying Battlefield or any DICE shooter. There is no anticheat anymore, there is no enforcement anymore, it is a garbage experience.

    I wonder where they got that entertainment unit. It looks really nice and it's been difficult to find one with doors covering the entire front and that looks that clean in a nice "duskwood" finish like that.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from LAwLz in Richard Stallman of GNU leaves MIT email leaks   
    That is not how blacklisting works. Anyone who works with him will be smeared a pedophile and blacklisted as well. His career is over. That his incredibly libertarian views on sexuality have nothing at all to do with software makes no difference.
     
    This is interesting piece by one of the people who got him removed from MIT. https://medium.com/@selamie/remove-richard-stallman-appendix-a-a7e41e784f88
     
    I particularly like how she embraces that this is a blacklisting for wrong think, by starting with "1. Richard Stallman has problematic opinions." Then notice how at the end she veers off into other far left issues that MIT has failed to appease her on.
     
    Tech is ruled by leftwing people who think and act like Stalinists now. There is no future in it for anyone who commits the sin of wrong think.

    Thanks.  Had same problem, had installed the driver from ASUS on a B450-f Gaming, and had the same un-recognized hardware.  Installing the chip directly from AMD solved the issue.

    Chett_Manly got a reaction from vanished in Honey Extension - Does it ever feel unethical to you?   
    I've been using the Honey extension for a few weeks now. For most things it seems to just give me the coupons I already got in an e-mail or advertised on the site. Which is great.
     
    Yet then there is this $20 coupon I keep getting at Safeway from it. A coupon Safeway has never sent me, and I cannot find anywhere. Yet it works. Which gave me this feeling that I am somehow pulling one over on Safeway, that I have somehow gotten this secret code that I am not supposed to have and using it to cheat them of $20 a week. I mean who gives out an unlimited use coupon of $20 off any order no strings attached?
     
    What if the code is only for employees, and it says so on the employee handout that had it, would Honey be committing some sort of fraud offering it? Woud I for using it? I do not know what circumstances it was given out, but certainly suspect that it was not for general public use.
     
    I guess the question is, is it unethical to use coupons you were not supposed to receive?

    I tried turning on ultra low latency and played some Battlefield, then I turned it off, and played again. I cannot tell the difference. Would make for an interesting LTT video, can anyone tell the difference in a blind test for Nvidia and AMD.
     
    I did have GSync on, if that does make any difference.

    If the business accepts the coupon then it's on them, is the way I see it.
     
    Employee coupons etc. in my experience almost always require some kind of verification that you actually work at the place in question. The only exception I've found is things like periodic "friends and family" discounts where an employee grabs a book of coupons (or a coupon code) and gives them to friends and family. Someone COULD just post that code out for a while.

    Chett_Manly reacted to Oshino Shinobu in Effective memory clock   
    That's the actual/physical speed. Effective speed is when DDR and other factors are accounted for. 
     
    GDDR4 and higher (I believe, it may be true for others as well) performs 4 operations per cycle. If the actual clock speed of the RAM is 1000MHz, the effective clock speed is 4000MHz. 
     
    There's some confusion, as it actually has three different clock speeds that can be quoted. Different programs show different things. Manufactures will pretty much always quote the effective clock speed, which is the actual clock speed x4. Most system monitor and overclocking programs will show the actual clock speed, which is multiplied by 4 to get the effective clock speed. There are also some, however, that show another clock speed, which is half that of the effective speed. This is a clock speed that accounts for how GDDR RAM works, but does not account for DDR.
     
    I have a longer post somewhere that explains the RAM clockspeeds in more detail. I'll see if I can dig it up.
     
    EDIT: Can't find it. There's some details on it on the GDDR5 Wiki page. It's the parts that cover CK and WCK. For the most part, you don't need to know it, but there's a common misconception that it works in the same way as standard DDR RAM.
