    Microsoft Unveils Project Silica, a Durable Silica Glass-based Optical Storage Media

    pretty much, only that it's 3D, infinitely more precise and fancy.

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    those acer predators are really nice. The 27" checks almost everything,IPS, gsync, 144Hz, QHD, sadly it IS 27" after all, AND it doesn't specify the colourspace (a review indicates 100% SRGB), but it is 500 USD~ Another option is the Aorus AD27QD which is much better (HDR10 amongst other things)...

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    but if i'm not finding a QHD monitor of 32" at a reasonable price, it would be nearly impossible to find a 4K 32" IPS 144Hz freesync 2 monitor at less than a small fortune(if one even exists), from that pchardware site, there's none

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    yeah so far from what i see, i'll have to wait 5 more years for a IPS monitor with these specs. ¿Isn't Aorus Gigabyte's gaming brand?, that's hardly an unknown brand, a quick check shows 27" is the biggest i'm going to check the PH listing, thanks!, edit: checked it, there's absolutely nothing...

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    Let me put it differently then, given no budget constraint, ¿which model would fit?. I know that there are some 32" IPS QHD that have 75Hz vsync, but honestly i wouldn't even bother to change from 60 to 75Hz The thing is that, it should be an upgrade in every sense from the 2708, no compromises...

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    it could be freesync 1, but seeing as FS2 is already out i wanted to take advantage of that, what i'm not sure is if "gsync compatible" maps to freesync 2 better or if it's amd only(i should mention i'm going to use it with a 1070 so it needs to be gsync compatible) i'm checking that website but...

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    i know 16:10 is dead, that's why i listed it as a "would be nice". i don't want 4K, i'm not going to lower details in any game and not using native resolution is visually terrible. You need pretty much top of the range GPU to use 4K at the same FPS as full HD, i don't/won't thus no 4K needed or...

    ¿FS IPS/VA QHD monitor recommendations? and rant

    Hello, this is part a question and part a rant, i want to upgrade my existing monitor (Dell ultrasharp 2708WFP that is a wide gamut 1920x1200 16:10, IPS, fixed 60Hz and absolutely gorgeous, extremely bright (450cd/m2) you can watch it sideways and has no distortion, plus it has a ton of inputs...

    Lorne Trottier Acquires Full Ownership of Matrox, to Lead New Era of Tech Innovation

    the parhelia was a fail, not because of comparisons to ati an nvidia at the time, but to itself, it could not do a fraction of the performance it promised priori to launch i vividly remmember that john carmack did a review of the card and even after some specific careful programming the card was...

    Lorne Trottier Acquires Full Ownership of Matrox, to Lead New Era of Tech Innovation

    ¿where to begin?, that news release is so full of boilerplate bullshit i feel like i'm reading an EA apology. "Matrox will continue to be at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, and work closely with its global stakeholders to solve specific real-world issues." Matrox has been irrelevant...

    As Gaming Becomes New College Football, Players Can Now Hire COD Coaches

    i'm with you on this one, the sole idea of watching someone else play is crap, and the same applies to sport. Why would i watch something instead of doing it?, instead of wasting time watching someone play, i will sit down and play(and will most likely play much better than the guys i would be...

    Philips 32" QHD 328P6AUBREB Monitor Offers 99% Adobe RGB, docking USB-C, $500

    i for one don't give a rat's toss about 4K and i certainly actively don't want it, this monitor looks vewy vewy promising and it's right in the resolution i want. and at that price it's competitive with dell ultrasharps so yeah, i'm hyped about it

    AMD Expands EPYC Availability, Introduces ROCm 1.7 With Tensor Flow Support

    well HPE has burnt a lot, i don't like selling HP servers as they come with "expiry date" since they started enforcing active warranty / support contracts to download firmware/software some years ago(a retarded move like no other), but i still have to sell something as a last resort if need...

    AMD Expands EPYC Availability, Introduces ROCm 1.7 With Tensor Flow Support

    looks like i'm not the only one waiting for DELL... funny thing their announcement stated "second half of 2017", well... we're practically at the end of the second half and no products in sight, hell not even an announcement of the product which is very worrisome. i'm holding back some...

    Synology Introduces DiskStation DS418j NAS

    4 bays... 87MB/s encrypted writing(and that's ofc sequential, so best case), in which world is that acceptable for 2017? quick math, any HDD these days can seq write at least 100MBPS ID and more than 200MBPS OD, let's say 150 to average... that's 150 * 3 (one is lost to parity in raid...

    ASUS Intros the Expedition B250-V7 Motherboard for Gaming iCafes

    indeed... i mean, an icafe board with TREE x16 slots?, that's useless, as if any icafe will be running SLI :D this should've been a single x16 slot in microatx, much much cheaper

    Windows 10 Process-Termination Bug Slows Down Mighty 24-Core System to a Crawl

    and why would they even consider using such a end user os for development when you already have windows, once you have windopws you don't need anything else

    Windows 10 Process-Termination Bug Slows Down Mighty 24-Core System to a Crawl

    you have to be a troll or a dimwit to even think that they should use chrome OS on a fucking development workstation. chrome OS is a lightweight end user OS which is mainly web only for shit hardware devices. Where in that is a proper development environment for a super high end desktop?. ffs...

    AMD Ryzen Infinity Fabric Ticks at Memory Speed

    yes they do, KBL IPC is far far higher than ryzen, ryzen IPC compares somewhat to broadwell and KBL is 2 gens above and all benchs do sustain that.

    AMD Ryzen Infinity Fabric Ticks at Memory Speed

    wow this is incredibly SHITTY, no matter how you spin it, at the tech level it's terribly bad, letme expand: first you have a non-monolithic-ish CPU design -not quite MCM but you could call it "MCM on die"- that communicates with each other on a 256bit bus as well as the other uncore parts with...

    AMD Radeon Vega GPU Architecture

    i'm really jaded about AMD.. remember guys that FAILdozer sounded REAL GOOD on paper and those slides made it look like the saviour of cpukind with it's "real" CMP and shedding of "duplicate hardware that is mostly unused", then they failed so hard the echo still sounds like a gong. so this...

    Intel Core i7-7700K vs 6700K: 22 Games, RX 480 & GTX 1080

    i wasn't expecting much from KBL... and intel delivered(on the dissapointment that is), i'm still running my watercooled 3570k @4.3ish(does not go 1Mhz beyond that even increasing vcore radically and lots of tweaks, probably due to cheap mb) and for what i see i'll still be running it for...

    AMD Radeon Crimson Edition Drivers

    i'm going back to the old drivers.... these crimsons are shit: no shader cache on my 5870, that means lazy programmers as that feature is NOT GPU dependant because shaders are CPU compiled... the FAN stays at 100% at random(the fan checkbox in overdrive turns on by itself), spcially when i...
