  1. To elaborate on this, SSL certificates can be had for free with any domain easily by routing through CloudFlare's network (which most small sites should do anyway tbh for the great features it provides), or using OpenSSL. There isn't really a tangible benefit to buy an SSL certificate these days for most situations. And subdomains are always free if you own the parent domain (provided the TLD itself supports subdomains, I believe there are only a few edge cases where this isn't true.) Sometimes there are technical limitations on this, but routing to CloudFlare's nameservers also mitigates
  2. We just turned ray tracing off in real life to take the right half of the photo
  3. With real-time raytracing availability almost being around for 3 years, people starting to actually ask if they should "future proof" for RTX. But can you tell if RTX is even on?
  4. Heyo! For After Effects you're going to be heavily CPU and memory bound. You will want to go with a new board, CPU, and memory, but otherwise it should be fine. If you can't stretch budget much, go for a 5600X, 16GB of DDR4 3200, and a B550 or B450 board (will probably require a BIOS update.) If you can stretch a bit, there is a slight benefit to getting a 5700X or 5900X, but it's not a linear scale-up with cores and the returns diminish very quickly after the 5600X (unless you use the C4D Renderer or RenderGarden). After Effects is HEAVILY single-threaded f
  5. The movement in TF2 is absolutely insane, it's basically a love letter to quake and old-school arena shooters
  6. Right to repair is a frequently misunderstood issue, and we’re here to set the record straight. Find more info on Louis Rossmann's GoFundMe here: https://gofundme.com/f/lets-get-right-to-repair-passed
  7. The Samsung Odyssey G9 is your best bet in this regard. It's an absolutely ridiculous monitor that I daily drove for a couple of months, and only sold because I had to move. If you want the best of the best, get the G9. It's 240hz, has 10 bit color, 5120x1440, and G-Sync compatible. There's also these options: AOC AG493UCX, Samsung C49RG90, Sceptre C505B-QSN168, Viotek SUW49DA; which are all 120hz panels. If you wanted 144hz or higher specifically you'd have to go for a lower resolution or dish out the high end G9
  8. Yeah for sure, I'm mostly just referring to them using the same SOC in the iPad and the Mac lineup now. Absolutely bonkers
  9. Welp, I stand corrected.
  10. It also depends on the game. You can expect to see upwards of 1,000 FPS in minecraft at very low settings or 400+ in CS:GO (both with an 8700k) OP your best bet is to get the best GPU you can reasonably afford. The best value is generally a 70 series Nvidia card (e.g. 3070) or a last gen 2070 Super, but the current GPU market is quite bad overall.
  11. The M series chips are similar to the A series chips in that they both contain arm cores and act as SoC's, but are otherwise not really comparable and it wouldn't make sense for Apple to merge the two technologies on a hardware level. The M1 (and future M series chips) is a laptop chip designed for mid-high power (relatively speaking) devices that will see professional applications and be involved in a wide variety of different workflows. It's truly for general use computing up to a professional level, will be in a device that has a large battery with more cooling, and will often b
  12. adventure time never looked this good
  13. I've been using the same tube of MX-4, and my ArctiClean kit at home for the past 8 years. You're fine.
