  1. you don't need to spend twice as much as a normal...

    you don't need to spend twice as much as a normal PC to do that either. The point is, a lot of these tests aren't just a 5% performance difference. In some of these tests, its over a 50%...

    I think this is located in his basement, so, it's probably sufficiently cool during the summer.

    Pretty sure he gets to keep it. They've sent him some pretty pricey things in the past that he got to keep, and Michael sure as hell will put more benchmark use to it than most review websites. ...

    Very nice. You should edit the picture with before and after pictures - I'm not sure everyone knows how much work went into this.
  5. This is definitely good news. AMD's open source...

    This is definitely good news. AMD's open source drivers are very nice but with all the new technologies coming out and intel basically not contributing to mesa anymore, their current devs will just...

    If Mesa supported OGL 4.2 then I'm sure AMD GPUs would be a lot more competitive. Catalyst just has too many issues. There are moments where it performs fine, but a lot of the time there seems to...

    Well then, I'll definitely go out of my way to not support Allwinner. And I thought Rockchip was bad.

    Its a shame, because Allwinner offers pretty decent performance at very low prices.

    That was nice of nvidia to send over such a valuable piece of hardware.


    For $1000 it better come with an unreasonable amount of everything.
  9. I never said other companies aren't interested. ...

    I never said other companies aren't interested. And FYI, Intel has been using finfets since 2012, and I personally am unaware of any other companies not using them. This is a very long time for a...

    OGL 4.2 is pretty reasonable, at least if the game actually takes advantage of it. Hopefully it'll be available soon.

    I'm not sure I'll get this game though. Bioshock 1 was incomparably the most...
  11. 3D transistors are expensive and have not proven...

    3D transistors are expensive and have not proven to be anywhere near as good as Intel claimed they would be. Almost no other company bothered to use them, including ones with very sufficient...
  12. I'm pretty sure they won't screw up again. ...

    I'm pretty sure they won't screw up again. Bulldozer wasn't a bad architecture by any means, but it wasn't ideal for x86 software and though it is arguably very fast and cheap to manufacture, it...

    Not necessarily. The R9 290 and 290X had TERRIBLE reference coolers, allowing the GPUs to heat up to 95C and therefore down-throttling the performance. They chose that reference cooler because it...

    Knowing AMD, they don't set prices like this unless they know it's going to sell well. This must be really competitive to the GTX980 if they're charging this much. I'm not sure this is actually a...

    If these chassis are mounted above everything else then these power supplies are fine. But yeah, I'd look into getting PSUs with a fan on back of rather than the bottom. In some situations, I'd be...

    You don't need 2 versions of the same game to support multiple APIs. I have played several DX10/DX11 games that also support DX9 or even DX8, or games that support several versions of openGL. ...

    VGA isn't that bad. For full HD resolutions and lower, it's very capable.



    Anyway, though I think this projector is pretty nifty, it seems a little too dim and the resolution is a bit too low...

    Again.... I never said consoles will support Vulkan or OpenGL. I'm not implying it either. You're failing to understand what I'm saying and you're thinking I'm an idiot because of it. All I'm...
  19. You're missing the point - I'm not saying the...

    You're missing the point - I'm not saying the consoles use DX, OGL, Vulkan, or whatever. My point is there are hardware limitations to what API you can use. The current-gen consoles are based on...

    True, and almost all closed-source programs are also on Windows too.

    The main benefit I can see of stuff like this (if cygwin can't do it - I'm not sure) is running X applications over SSH.
