    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

    Feel free to elaborate. I'm not holding my breath on it though.

    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

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

    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.

    NVIDIA's Volta Reportedly Poised for Anticipated, Early Q3 2017 Launch

    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.

    Looking forward to spamming this thread once my SLA printer arrives (some time 4Q16)... =P~

    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.

    MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G here too. Now I just need few more hours in a day to toy with it...

    GTX 980/970 Club

    I don't like the looks of most of those "full length" GTX970s, awful lot of wasted PCB... =P For the record, Palit GTX970 vanilla has the same PCB as the Jetstream version. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Palit/GeForce_GTX_970_JetStream/3.html

    Ordered some toys

    Indeed, I spoiled myself 3 years ago when I bought my to-be-obsolete Vertex 60GB and I'm so giddy to get my mitts on the new Sammy. ¦p~ Surely, SSDs have come so far in all this time... In case someone wonders why the motherboard is the dual Thunderbolt version; no particular reason. Got no...

    Ordered some toys

    I went bananas this evening and ordered some junk to toy with: Core i7 3770K Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH 2×8GB Mushkin Blackline Frostbyte DDR3L-1866 CL11-11-11-27 Samsung 840 Pro 256GB LSI MegaRAID SAS 9240-4i (RAID controller) Some thoughts: - No new GPU; I'll hold on to my dual...

    Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition 6-core Processor Starts Selling

    I wonder if you could find more of such results? Some with non-synthetic benchies perhaps? Maybe it would be possible to find a couple slides where AMD is on top, but that's about it.

    Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition 6-core Processor Starts Selling

    If IB-E actually launches I wonder how Ivy Bridge arch chippery can remain relevant against LGA1150 Haswell and it's Xeon counterparts that will launch before it. But ofcourse, it's another story if Haswell offers no CPU-side performance bump vs. Ivy...

    Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition 6-core Processor Starts Selling

    Seems to me LGA2011 is heading the way of LGA1366. I have a feeling Intel might just axe IB-E altogether and launch a new HEDT platform based on Haswell in mid-late and leave LGA2011 out dying much like they did with LGA1366, only worse as this time as users hoping to upgrade to IB-E would...

    DRAM Makers Disappointed in Windows 8

    I'm itching to upgrade from my 4GBs of DDR2. Always running out of memory. Mmmm... How about a nice LGA2011 board with 8×8GB... ¦p~ :D That clip is from a finnish skit show "Kummeli", skit's name is "Jankon Betoni" (part 1). Absolutely. Legendary. Finnish comedy. :rockout:
