  1. Benchmarks on the FOSS driver show plateauing...

    Benchmarks on the FOSS driver show plateauing performance around the 7870 / 270x anyway - the 7950 / 280+ cards all barely get more than a few percentage points over Pitcarin and Curacao, even with...

    So it is more Upstart and Systemd than Wayland and Mir. I've been using ufw on Arch for years, and I had to go check to make sure, but community/ufw is still up to date with upstream (0.33-3), so...

    So, firewalld vs ufw. My understanding is ufw was developed first, and that firewalld has some NIH syndrome going on from the Red Hat camp, unless I'm missing some critical failing in ufw that...

    In some ways they are still trying to destroy KDE, since they are basically reinventing all the wheels the Plasma guys have made from Plasma Active and Plasma Widgets in the last 5 years.



    How...
  5. Variable VBlank refresh is an eDisplayPort...

    Variable VBlank refresh is an eDisplayPort feature, AMD just called it something else and showed laptops using it. They did probably put enough pressure on VESA to get it in DP 1.2a, though.

    Consider, though, that for AMD and Intel, their principle OpenGL implementation is still at 3.3. For all intents and purposes at least. Very few games use OpenGL on Windows. WebGL might change that a...

    I'm just wondering why PCI switches are hugely expensive compared to soldered in ones on router PCBs.
  8. It isn't about source-iness. Though I don't even...

    It isn't about source-iness. Though I don't even think Mantle's API specifications are public yet, which doesn't help it any. But at this point we can soundly assume AMD has no intention to make...

    Where do you find cheap ethernet switch cards?...

    Where do you find cheap ethernet switch cards? They always seem to be like $200+ online, yet I can buy a router switch for $40 with 4 gigabit ports (albeit it could never route 4+gigabits of traffic...

    You can also get single DIMMs. If I went with a 760k + 750ti / 265 type build, I'd just a 4GB stick of 1600mhz ram. They are usually only around $30.

    It really sucks how on Arch or its derivatives,...

    It really sucks how on Arch or its derivatives, you have to try building LLVM from their SVN from scratch to get the radeonSI gl 3.3 shader compiler. Arch got Mesa 10.1 like a month ago but I won't...
  13. If you are using a discrete graphics card you...

    If you are using a discrete graphics card you should just get a 760K (which is $15 more than the 5350) and get double the cache and almost double the clock speed with an unlocked multiplier. PRIME...

    This Antec case is effecitvely that. $60 with rebate, more than enough power for the use case.

    Though I'd like to see a high efficiency low wattage Flex ATX PSU unit, and cases to utilize it....

    This is definitely infeasible. Especially when you take a formal definition of a computer, in which case your microwave, fridge, pool filtration system, etc would all need to come without any...

    I'm thinking of building a 5350 based pc for my mom, since all she does is read email and doesn't need her 500w guzzler.

    I found this case, which I would definitely strongly consider. Throw a 32 -...

    1GB of memory would just take up too much space on the die. Look at Intels Crystalwell, they implemented it as a seperated soldered die for HD5200 parts, it would add 1/8 the size of the die to the...

    The RVZ supports over foot long graphics cards (13", but if you say a foot you cover your bases if you get one with power connectors off the back rather than side). It is designed to hold a potent...

    That thing is gorgeous and I was looking at it last year, but honestly I'd suffer a Galago Ultrapro's less stellar build and keyboard for Iris Pro and not giving Microsoft money.

    You've got to get an SSD with anything over $600. Even a 64GB one for just the OS and a few choice games.

    Also, in a case like the rvz its silly not to get a discrete gpu - a 760k + 270x would...
