    So It Finally Happened---> First Genetic Engineered Human Born in China

    I'm having difficulties deciding which flavor conspiracy theory -site article this is about. Or do I get to pick?

    So It Finally Happened---> First Genetic Engineered Human Born in China

    One of the worst plagues of human mind is fear for failure. Another great is fear for the unknown. Lots of combined fears in this thread. edit: sunday morning induced typos

    Said a caveman to another when they saw a fellow use fire to cook food.

    So It Finally Happened---> First Genetic Engineered Human Born in China

    CRISPR babies is the future. Genetic manipulation of the human species - besides cultivated organisms - is the only way we will get better than this sorry state we are in now. Now if they would find the genetic defects that allow existence of superstitions (bye bye religion) and moronic...

    Intel to Introduce 3D XPoint DIMM Tech to the Market on 2018

    XPoint RAM? Nice! All things DRAM has been awfully boring for 10 years already.

    That die on the right is Kepler GK110 from 2012, not Volta. :rolleyes:

    GTX 1060 Owners club

    Got a vanilla Palit GTX1060 6GB here. It replaced a GTX470 1280MB that started to flake out. Had a GTX970 for a short time back in hmmm... ...whenever they were released... but got rid of it as I had no use for it. And I was not impressed by it - for a number of reasons.

    Favorite GPU you have owned

    Favorite GPU? G92. Owned a few of this type of chippery. One 8800GT 512MB I vmodded 'n' OC'ed until it was dead. Burned (!) the VRMs while torturing the poor thing. Thus came in a 8800GTS 512MB which ended up being strapped with vGPU, vMEM and OCP. Shader core reached blistering >2.4GHz until...

    SSD reliability

    SSD reliablity? Excellent. In my experience. I've been using SSDs for over 8 years now and both of 'em still work. First an OCZ (now retired [60GB]) and a Samsung. For what it's worth.

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    Incorrect - and it would be irrelevant even if it were true. The ROPs are disabled.

    Nvidia GTX 970 problems: This isn't acceptable.

    I'm prolly too lazy to bother to return my card but it looks like I did not get what was advertised and what I paid for: - 64ROPs ===> 56ROPs - 4GB VRAM, 256bit ===> 3.5GB L1 VRAM, 224bit + ½GB L2 VRAM, 32bit The matter of the number of ROPs is not concrete. Knowing the truth doesn't...

    GTX 980/970 Club

    Ack! The fannage is annoying my ears - at idle! I'm so pampered by ten years of watercooled silenced computing... Luckily, the mounting hole dimensions are the same as on my retired GTX 470s so muffling the bugger is only matter of poking it silly with a screw driver.
