    patrickjp93 got a reaction from TheSLSAMG in so, what is nVidia's Fast Sync introduced with Pascal GPUs?   
    If Nvidia can engineer a solution with more features and better quality than Adaptive Sync, then that competition is pro-consumer. Just because a standard is open doesn't mean it's the very best.

    The only die we have is an 8-core, and the 6900K is a cut-down 10-core die. Seriously people, think...
     
    And even if this is a quad-core module, Intel has the iGPU included and AMD doesn't. Either way, huge density DISadvantage for AMD.

    I would argue that people getting their feet wet with "complex tasks" and getting low level should start wit C++, not C. You will get lost in a sea of code with C, and all valid C code is valid C++ code that acts pretty much as expected save for a few pointer aliasing rules. The era of C really needs to end in all fairness.

    The last report we have is from Q3 2016, and Nvidia claims it made ground in Q4.
     
    In terms of real production cost, the CPU is more expensive, but because of cache, not because of the logic. More of the die is used for cache and memory transactions than actual logic.

    It's just as strong as an A8 from AMD. Hell in a number of compute benchmarks Skylake GT2 goes toe to toe with an A10.
     
    Compute power is compute power. Games should try to make use of everything in the system to its fullest extent, period.
     
    A real developer maximizes the performance potential of any system. That is my standard as an HPC programmer, and given my age that standard should be lower than industry veterans'.
     
    Sorry but still wrong. If I just want to practice parallel and heterogeneous computing but don't want to triple my electric bill by having a dGPU, an iGPU is a very good option.

    Java compared to C is easy. Compared to C++ it's like pulling teeth to do anything important. Once you learn how to leverage the STL and just 1 or 2 Boost libraries, you will NEVER want to go back to Java.

    I meant achieving "extreme" clocks on air using one of those server fans to cool CPU. Like in the video.
    Someone correct me if I am wrong.
     
    LGA 2011-3 CPUs have soldered IHS, smaller CPUs don't. it has to do something about physics. I do believe that the solder shrinks/expands during the temperate changes. Smaller dies are sensitive to this and they would crack whereas bigger dies won't.

    Because the solder "holds" CPUs die, as the temperature rise, solder expands, die does too. Similarly with shrinking. Eventually this will cause die to crack. You  probably could have CPU with smaller die and soldered IHS but you would need really good cooler to avoid temperature changes. CPUs with bigger dies have... well... bigger die surface, it is capable to withstand this stress. Because thermal paste doesn't create this issue. You can have it on smaller die and not cause to crack it during temperature changes. It either:
    1. doesn't expand/shrink
    2. simply doesn't hold die tightly as solder so even if it expand/shrink, it doesn't affect the die
     
    Atleast this is how I understand it.

    patrickjp93 reacted to Delicieuxz in RyZen will get official Windows 7 support   
    In computing, low level means less helpful abstraction, and so more complex to work with, though I think you meant to imply the opposite. But, that article looks like it lists pretty much all the advertised new changes to Windows 8, over Windows 7. For desktop usage, it amounts to virtually no difference in user-experience or OS functionality.
     
    Most of that stuff is specific to mobile devices, and since Windows 7 wasn't a mobile OS to begin with, isn't relevant to Windows 7, or to a comparison between Windows 7 and 8, since people who prefer Windows 7 were never using it on a mobile device. 
     
    Most of the rest of the mentioned stuff: A Task Manager visual update, Reset & Refresh, Windows Defender, Windows Store, a virtualization tool
    ... is not enhancing to the average user's interaction with Windows, and none of those things are particularly important. Also, Microsoft Security Essentials is available for Windows 7, as well, though it needs to be downloaded separately. If a person wants it, they can get it. I shut it off in Windows 10, because it was a constant annoyance, and offered no proper management controls.
     
    The only really interesting thing in all of that, IMO, is the faster boot time, which is only by a few seconds, and ultimately not important. I would also consider the purported additional hacking safeguards as interesting, except that I have seen no manifestation of Windows 8 being safer in that regard, and have never personally had an issue in that regard with Windows 7. So, it sounds like a potential benefit, but which hasn't proven itself in a public account.
     
    Ultimately, I think that list proves that Windows 8 offers virtually nothing, other than a few seconds faster boot time, over the core OS functionality and user-experience of Windows 7.
     
    Also, that list of Windows 8 changes doesn't support an argument that people using Windows 7 would be holding anything back, technologically, since those advertised changes, whether they're present or not on a system, do not affect any opportunities for 3rd-party developers, since nothing is being built upon those changes, and the only way any potential interaction with 3rd-party technology is impacted by Windows 8's changes is by limiting what interactions can occur (for the sake of safety, and except for Windows Store).
     
    I think it can be said that any difference between Windows 7 and 8 for desktop use are extremely superficial, and pretty much non-factoring. And also, that Windows 8 was a for-mobiles refresh of Windows 7, and that Windows 10 is again another refresh of Windows 7/8, this time for the sake of injecting a plethora of monetization functionality into the OS, for the sake of Microsoft's revenue.
     
     
     
    The BSOD Jayz got there has happened to lots of people who aren't running Kaby CPUs, and the cause of it doesn't appear to be CPU-related. It's too bad that Jayz didn't look up the BSOD, find out what it's associated with, and talk about it in his video. Instead, he, unintentionally, is giving a false impression that that instability is related to running a Kaby CPU with an older Windows version, when, in all likeliness, it had nothing to do with the CPU being Kaby Lake.
     
    DPC_Watchdog_Violation has occurred on Windows 7, 8, and 10, with all types of CPUs:

    You don't need a driver to tell the OS how to talk to the CPU. Period. A CPU driver is a contradiction. Period.
     
    The only things you need drivers for are the busses EXTERNAL to the CPU, and the devices which are on the other sides of those busses.
     
    Your OS can function perfectly fine without them (just see Linux where you can actually remove all of these special utilities and nothing bad happens). Now, if you tell the OS that some extra handles are there which it includes in its scheduling and clock controls when they aren't ACTUALLY there, OF COURSE you're gonna crash, but that's not a driver! It's a utility!
     
    No, the OS interacts with the CPU out of the box of its own accord. If it didn't no one could even write a boot loader.
