  1. Google's ML team (the one that created AlphaGo) has been using exclusively MacOS for this. OpenAI might also do this, but not entirely sure. ML and software development on macOS is just fine. Visual Studio Code, JetBrains products, Matlab run on it. It can do everything Windows and Linux can, most things better than Windows thanks to it's Unix-like structure. Sincerely, a software developer and data analyst on macOS (who uses Windows for gaming and software dev in the pastime)
  2. Y axis is percentage, with M1 sitting at 100% and the other chips having relative performance to that.
  3. Oh the M1 Max has only 70 % of the performance of a 3080… So it has a desktop 3070 in it? With a power draw of a laptop? wtf even?
  4. Finally. Super annoying that I have to carry two different chargers for my iPhone and iPad. While we're at it, please also make a USB-C Apple Watch cable, so I can carry only one block, thanks
  5. I need a 17 inch laptop for a family member. The only problem: the use case is basically only couch surfing. I don't think laptops like this exist, but maybe they do - someone help me out please. The only requirements are basically 17 inch and as cheap as possible while still having a decent quality. Ideally lightweight, with a decent battery. No dedicated GPU (this would be too expensive), a CPU strong enough to run Google Chrome some six-seven years from now on. Right now I'm thinking that my best bet might be a second-hand 17" gaming laptop since I highly doubt 17" w
  6. As someone who's WD Red 8 TB died this week (within guarantee, phew) - maintaining this is going to be a pain in the ass. A single pre-clear run on Unraid took me 54 hours, and another 15 for parity sync to rebuild the array - so total of 69 hours (heh) to get the entire array online. For 8 TB. I think it's fair to say that this will take 2.5 times that, so 173 hours. An entire week. At what point do you stop upgrading storage size and start upgrading storage speed? For me, the cutoff is 10 TB.
  7. I would if I could, but I don't have an old motherboard, nor any DDR3 sticks, nor a GPU that's younger than a 1070 Ti That's why I'm asking for ideas here. Windows is not the reason - the system has no bootable hard drive present in it at the moment. In any case, Windows preventing a POST would be a first to me.
  8. A family member's pre-built PC stopped booting. Data was saved from the main HDD, now I am trying to identify the problem. I can't get the system to POST and get to the BIOS. I re-installed the RAM sticks to make sure they are seated properly. I tried booting without them, the motherboard beeps an alarm sound when doing so - so the motherboard is working to some degree. The screen is just black. The motherboard doesn't have a dedicated video output slot, so I have to rely on getting a video output from the GPU. It's possible that the GPU is cooked, however I don't think
  9. And yet they are making the world's biggest Linux distribution, essentially - between Android apps and WSLg. And the one that is by far easiest to use.
  10. I've just spend twenty minutes trying to find an age-restricted video to test this and failed. I'm not sure whenever this is sad or hilarious. EDIT: Nevermind, Samsung's Virtual Assisstant to the rescue. Didn't have to do anything... is this for newer accounts only? Or did my payment methods from 6 years ago when I had an Android phone count?
  11. My biggest gripe with the Setting menu is, it's too monochrome - it always takes me like two minutes to find out where I need to go. Control panel had different-colored icons, so it was way easier to find categories. So basically, color it/split it into useful groups instead of one gigantic scrollable list and I'm going to be happy.
