  1. Won't happen. I don't believe MagSafe is coming back or that the TouchBar is gone. Apple just set up it's whole ecosystem to use USB-C; and the TouchBar functionality is being enhanced every now and then.
  2. Makes sense that the first two systems both aren't working if they are sharing hardware like motherboard, ... . Try updating your BIOS, or swapping components out one by one to isolate the issue. The PSU is plenty fine. Could be that SWBF2 has the 1080 Ti backed in. If GPU in [known GPU list]: use settings for that GPU, else use default (medium). Since the 3080 wasn't released at the time SWBF2 came out, it's not in that known GPU list.
  3. I'm looking for tips for workstation notebooks. A dedicated GPU is a must, however a quadro is not necessary since current Nvidia offerings are quite good for the mid-tier photo and video editing that I'm planning on doing. Current device I'm using is a Dell Precision with a Quadro 2000 and a quad-core i7 (8 threads) from some 5-6 years back. What are the currently best manufacturers and product series? I can pick out the right specs (CPU, GPU, storage, RAM) myself, I'm generally in search of "X manufacturer's Y series is great performance to price value/build quality/customer supp
  4. I've had their mice and keyboards for solid 6 years now - still work like a charm. The particular mouse (BMW design) was not the best ergonomically (the reason why I switched brands), but it sure is robust.
  5. At this point with PC gaming it's better to pretend you're living in <current year - 2>. So basically, if it's 2021, play games from 2019. They have bug fixes, mod support, all DLCs released, they cost less. You can also run them at 2-year-old hardware that costs normal money, and where you never feel sad because you bought a Ti card only for Nvidia to release the Ultra Duper Ti x2 card the next day
  6. I miss the simpler times when I had a series of base cards, sorted by their performance in ascending order (x50, x60, x70, x80, x90), and where they would release a Ti version some years later that would be sitting above it's base version, but below the next one (x70 < x70 Ti < x80). Such simpler times. Why the current fuckery.
  7. What is input in this context? The variable isn't declared. In any case, small code prettification: if input in ["w", "a", "s", "d"]: break #this is your stop() function>
  8. Chrome on PC because lazy and complacent. Any browser would work nowadays. And I guess Chromecast is nice, roughly twice a year. I would only switch when a browser has significant advantages at this point, this isn't like it was back in 2009 when Firefox, Opera, Chrome were battling it out. Safari on Mac for development reasons
  9. It will be missed for sure. Hundreds of hours of fun in Flash games.
  10. EU always had a strong silicon market, but in different areas. A lot of leading telecom companies are EU-based, like Siemens (Infineon now), Rohde und Schwarz, Nokia, Ericsson... even Intel had telecommunication design in Europe Fab investment is the bigger thing
  11. Sell them on the mechmarket subreddit
  12. Was that an out of season April's Fools joke? dbrand?!
  13. Went through four Logitech G502's in two years due to the middle mouse button stopping working (3x) and left mouse double clicking (1x). Then switched to Corsair Ironclaw RGB, went through two of those in one year (middle mouse button not working 2x; left mouse button double clicking 1x). Now on Steelseries Rival 600 and I hope it lasts longer. It got recommended to me by like 30 people on the Dota 2 subreddit, all of whom specifically use MMB to drag their map - so a lot of people who use it a lot. It survived one month already; considering that one Logitech died after 2 hours of Dota and one
  14. And Apple customers - they won't have to deal with shortages. I guess Apple doesn't want customers to notice current supply problems. Would not be exactly magical if someone wants to buy a device and it's out of stock.
