And it's unlikely DX12 will change that , the main logic of the game can still be a huge bottleneck and given it's age it definitely is. I bet there is stuff written in there by people than left long ago and no one got a clue how to properly fix it or would dare to do so.
DX12 is not a magic...
It's not the art work , it's the age of the engine. People have to realize there's code in there written more than a decade ago , there is no chance this game will ever properly take advantage of modern hardware. And who knows what clusterfuck lies in the back end of the game which is just as old.
You mixed up so many different things it makes no sense. Being "Alpha" != CEO with billions or at the very least that's certainly not all. I mean does Zuckerberg look alpha to you ? I've seen multiple phycologists place him on the autism spectrum due to the way he behaves.
It's neither , it's...
It's a mobile CPU , that's how they behave , nothing out of the ordinary. Hell even the desktop variant of this CPU will hit pretty much the same temperatures with stock cooling.
70c idling is odd though.
Not true , people are busted for scams all the time , you can say most get away with it and that would be fair but certainly not all as you imply. One thing is certain though , the chance to get anything back with crypto is definitely null.
I have to disagree , with crypto if you get scammed or your money is outright stolen you are undoubtedly screwed with no chance to get anything back from anyone , there is nothing in the way of safety. You can educate people all you want but you need tools to protect them and that has everything...
Cryptocurrencies can't be defended well against abuse and fraud and I would go as far as to say that this is by design. Everytime someone makes money out of thin air a question mark needs to pop up in your head.
OpenCL and CUDA performance is dependent on the hardware configuration. The same code can run worse on more powerful hardware simply because things such as the number of ALUs per CU or the register file/cache size had not been taken into account properly. And there are many other architectural...
Would you look at that , turns out they can support newer CPUs with higher core counts without changing the socket. Who would have thought ?
Just a troll , look at his past posts. Don't bother responding to that.
You sort of did , or rather that it had nothing to do with any of this which is false.
Point is , you're saying we are beating a dead horse. If that's the case then you are doing the same thing , it's just that you are kicking it from the opposite side.
Not sure what your dilemma is , to sell the card now or then ? Well if you were to maximize your profit naturally you would sell it now since when new video cards are released the price will drop for the previous generation.
You would have to be very naive to believe ASUS would go out of their way to ask a premium for a sticker on a product that they know most consumers already think isn't very appealing. They didn't do it because they genuinely thought that will bring them more cash, they did it because the...
Because selling some IP to a foreign country impacts you more than a 'computer game' ? Weird set of priorities I must say.
I am sure you know just as much as everyone else here that it had everything to do with GPP.
That's just not true , you make it sound as if ASUS has no clue as to what...
Mad throttling, though to their credit at least they are doing it quitely.
These macs are definitely not desirable for a good chunk of developers. Most developers that do use macs it's pretty much exclusively for web or iOS development , but then again not much is needed in the way of hardware...
Said it twice , did you read my first post ?
Not in the US, thing is the drive wasn't even that cheap from where I bought it compared to others and there I was thinking It can't be crap.
Fortunately I can just return and not bother with RMA.
