    Bombastinator reacted to Falkentyne in 2060 Super Suddenly not working properly? Help?   
    Is this a laptop?
    Looks like it's trying to use the integrated intel iGPU?

    Bombastinator got a reaction from unclewebb in Zephyrus duo 15 AMD 5900hx CPU 3080GPU Normal Temperatures?   
    The norm for laptops in general for the last year or so has been run then at whatever huge temp they get to and let them throttle down to 95°c.  These days a “cool” laptop is one that can actually hit its max spec before it throttles.  It sux.  😕 As far as keeping or tossing goes the statement that “they’re all like that” actually has some merit.  As far as actual discomfort from heat goes that’s a bit unusual.

    My understanding is it kind of doesn’t.  Or at least not in a way that is intuitive.  I’ve personally droppped the nm entirely because it’s deceptive.  I call it intel14 or TSMC7 or Samsung8.  They might as well be intelCat, SamsungDog, and TSMCParrokete

    I kinda wish it mattered more.  With GPUs so hard to get neither ryzen3 or alder lake are particularly relevant.

    Agreed.  There’s nothing actually wrong with the 5800x, especially since msrp has left the building.

    Bombastinator reacted to D13H4RD in The new Intel Core i7 11700K is being sold already in Germany and Denmark, list price of the 11900K leaked   
    As I said, there are reasons to buy a 5800X, there just aren’t nearly as many to buy it over a 5600X or 5900X assuming both are at MSRP. And those reasons tend to be specific like wanting more cores but unable to justify going all the way to a 12 core or you want the higher binned Zen 3 cores in a single CCX.
     
    I’ve already also said no one should feel bad for buying a 5800X because it’s a fundamentally good product...

    Pinner is a slang term meaning weak or inadequate.  A cheap low capacity cooler I think.

    Pics are failing for me. The structures for coolers that matter is how big the holes are, how far apart they are in all directions, and how high surrounding structures are.  Intel cooler sizing is by far the most common.

    Bombastinator reacted to EjectedCasings in USPS is getting new trucks but only 10% are electric   
    The point is that these vehicles do not have the same performance as a Tesla. Shocking, I know. (Shocking, hehe, get it?) They will most likely not do anywhere near 300 miles. Even if, for the sake of argument, they could do that distance, they will not do so in real world use.
     
    Saying that 300 miles is doable regardless of condition, route, or speed is not an argument. Neither is sarcasm. Defend your point, or conclude that others are right.

    Bombastinator got a reaction from spicy-j in 2013 H60 water cooler mounting bracket   
    So 115x and 1200 are mount identical for coolers. That’s interesting.  As it happens I’ve got a 1150 cooler I rather like as well.  The company is long gone so I figured it was an artifact of sorts.  Apparently perhaps not.   Still sitting on the old cpu

    Bombastinator reacted to spicy-j in 2013 H60 water cooler mounting bracket   
    so i did some more research and found it is indeed compatible "“The heatsink mounting on Intel’s new LGA 1200 (code name Comet Lake S) is identical to all LGA115x sockets (LGA 1150, LGA 1151, LGA 1155, LGA 1156,” the company wrote on its FAQ page. “Therefore, all Noctua CPU coolers that support LGA 115x also support LGA 1200 and don’t require any mounting updates.”

    Bombastinator reacted to StDragon in TSMC on Track to Begin Volume Production of 3nm Chips in 2022   
    There's room for a lot of software optimization. While code-bloat (excessive reliance on libraries and copy-paste code) is more of an issue in RAM utilization, it still impacts CPU cycles to a lesser extent.
     
    I think CPU performance at some point will plateau with focus on gains being more on code optimization.

    I would agree, once the water is processed for purity, I too would think refiltration would be a lot cheaper and require less energy to recycle. In addition, at least your plant can account for water inventory during this period.
     
    Hopefully an expert in fab production can chime in. When it comes to plant operation, stuff gets complicated.

    Bombastinator got a reaction from Benji in Your unpopular (non-political, non-offensive) opinions!   
    Ive seen seen numbers 3-4 times higher that what you are describing.  The lowest one I’ve seen is 183.  The argument is probably “but if you drive on a normal manner the numbers are much lower” where ‘normal’ is racing.  ICE engines have the same issue.  I’ve got an older GTI.  It can get 20mpg if I drive it on the street, but if I pummel the thing mileage rapidly drop into single digits. The opposite is hypermiling  where intense care is taken to Maintain high mileage.  The accusation seems to be that the 300mile range often marked for electric vehicles is a hypemile range not a real one.  The way to test this would be to hypermile an electric car and see what kind of range advantage is achieved.  People have done this.  The ICE hypermilers do get better numbers than the electric hypermilers but it’s not as severe as you describe.  Even if it was it wouldn’t matter though, because very few people exceed the 50 mile round trip per day required for your complaint.

    Seasonal stuff is sort of up in the air with global warming.   Don’t know what things are going to do.  One would think that water would be reusable.  Makes one wonder what is in the used water and what is being done with it.

    Bombastinator got a reaction from MarvintheParrot in Every game closes after 5 minutes of gameplay   
    So it crashes after 5 min but not on everything.  How accurate is the 5 minute thing?  Exactly five minutes to the second? Seems like a short period of time described as 5 min?  Something in between?

    Bombastinator got a reaction from RTX 3090 in Intel is dropping its overclocking focused warranty   
    They might get a negative return.  If few enough people buy it and a larger percentage of those people destroy their chips the cost could get very high.  Plus there are fixed costs to running anything.  What actually caused the decision isn’t known though and unless the statistical things associated with the policy are divulged I don’t think it even can be known.  If it’s sufficiently profitable some company specializing in unregulated insurance like Assurion might step into the breach.  As a rule I won’t buy anything from assurion.  Unregulated insurance generally has a scam built into it.

    Bombastinator reacted to Arika S in Intel is dropping its overclocking focused warranty   
    people have been overclocking for years up until now with most people not even knowing about this warranty, it didn't stop them, AMD doesn't offer one and yet also get overclocked. Both Intel and AMD's warranties are voided if you overclock, but very rarely would they even be able to tell that was the cause of the chip's death unless you severely fucked up
     
    seriously what's with everyone suddenly making it out be that this optional warranty was somehow required to overclock? and that it's the end of the world that they are getting rid of this largely unknown service?
