    The way they've done Steam Machines means they've already taken the console crowd out of their comfort zone. With consoles, you've got a very few options, none of which are related to the consoles'...

    But does it check the answer against a known correct answer?

    The reason Prime95 is a good stress-tester is not just that it will crash a slightly too-overclocked CPU very quickly, but it will also...

    The habit of making screens ever wider is why I'm still running... a CRT.

    It could be a useful tool with that many computers around.

    I think the X99S+i7 5960X incident had more to do with this than anything else. You never forget that smell.
  5. If you've got Mesa installed on Debian (lots of...

    If you've got Mesa installed on Debian (lots of stuff depends on it, so it does), every time there's a Mesa security update, your proprietary graphics driver will break because the symlink to...

    Prime95 for a while, especially if you have an overclock. Your system may act stable, but it might put single-bit errors in weird places regardless.

    Passively cooled 270W cards kind of require a rack server chassis to work. These things have to dissipate 270W of heat, and they have no fans of their own, so they basically require a rack mount...

    Who says it's not in hardware somewhere? Lots of places in those billions of transistors where one could be hidden.

    Go to Nvidia's website, find the right driver, download, install, run. I suggest not messing with one of those beta drivers, cause installing those invites pesky issues.
  10. For most of us, yes. C isn't completely...

    For most of us, yes.

    C isn't completely machine-independent (big endian/little endian), but assembly is very machine-dependent. There are also a lot of instructions, and for best results, you...

    Graphics card/driver testing with slower platforms.
    I know they perform really well with a $1000 i7, but most of us don't have one of those. What happens when you drop one of these in a computer...
  12. The big deal about R9 285 won't be outright...

    The big deal about R9 285 won't be outright performance increase. The big improvement will be reduced TDP and memory bandwidth requirements, which will make the new APUs not require $300 RAM and...

    Hopefully Excavator will be something Intel has to be afraid of.
  14. So, how do these things perform when you pull...

    So, how do these things perform when you pull that i7 out and add a 2GHz Pentium?
  15. What's the power draw when you run something like...

    What's the power draw when you run something like Furmark or OpenCL? Another reveiewer found it to be... high.

    I'd put money on Wine not recognizing it right away. It took them a few tries to get my GTX 770 to work.
    You'll probably need to run update-pciids as root, or it will just say "NVidia Device xxx"...

    Debian 7 works with it.

    I haven't gotten any PhysX or OpenCL type of stuff to work in Wine, but the GTX 770 works almost perfectly.
    My big gripe is: it loves to tear frames.

    I doubt it.

    I did have a P4 laptop (Dell Inspiron 9100). The people at Dell put a desktop Prescott in that thing. One day, the fans didn't spin up when I applied load, and... poof. No fire,...

    I don't suppose you're going to quad-GPU with that thing?
