    What's the power draw when you run something like Furmark or OpenCL? Another reveiewer found it to be... high.
  2. I'd put money on Wine not recognizing it right...

    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?

    Sooo... who wants to write new FOSS Radeon firmware?

    That's not just MSI's problem.

    I went to update the BIOS on my Asus motherboard. I got the BIOS from the website, installed the flashing utility from the motherboard's installer disk, and went to...

    The whole point of an antistat bag is to allow the discharge of static at a safe (discharging static in <1ms isn't good for electronics) rate. That makes it the best place to leave your motherboard....

    Maybe cause he just got one now?

    What happens if you change cpufreq's up_threshold to something lower than 95%?

    Try:
    # echo 50 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/ondemand/up_threshold
    (Sets cpufreq to scale higher when load hits...

    Don't do your driver development kind of things...

    Don't do your driver development kind of things on a machine with irreplaceable data. The hardware is expendable-ish. Your data, priceless.

    My PowerPC 603e-based Mac quit playing nice with Linux a looooong time ago. I tried to put Debian 4 on it to get files off of it (no USB support at all!), after it had been out of service for a...
  13. "Release the docs and there will be drivers"...

    "Release the docs and there will be drivers" worked much better when the hardware was much simpler. Nowadays, it helps a lot to have a driver team that knows not only how to read specs, but how to...

    My motherboard has a feature called "Processor Downcore." I can set the CPU to only use 3/2/1 cores (or 6-the board was meant for Phenom I, not Thuban). Maybe there's a similar one on an Intel...

    40-60Hz?

    I think G-sync was meant to go with 120-144Hz monitors, which help with mouse lag.

    It would be really nice if someone implemented Shadowplay with this.

    I've noticed someone has gone in with Valgrind and started looking for and fixing memory sloppiness.
  18. I know someone who still likes to use iBook G4s,...

    I know someone who still likes to use iBook G4s, which also use this chipset.

    Nitpick: I don't think there was ever a 64MB version of Rage 128. I think it was more like 8/16MB (the iBook has 8).

    I have an HD 4670. It still works like it did when I first got it. Open-source drivers are pretty good for that card from what I'm reading here, but I'm running Debian Wheezy, and don't want to go...
