    World of Warcraft Engine Updated to Support DX12, Adds 21:9 Cinematic Rendering

    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...

    World of Warcraft Engine Updated to Support DX12, Adds 21:9 Cinematic Rendering

    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.

    Code of Conduct: Texas Instruments CEO Brian Crutcher Resigns

    Oh man someone just had to say it. :roll:

    Code of Conduct: Texas Instruments CEO Brian Crutcher Resigns

    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...

    The game engine is an absolute relic , wasted effort.

    Western Digital Shuts Down Hard Drive Factory - Just not Enough Demand

    They are obscene but they are also definitely lower than what they used to be. I'd pick a SSD with half the storage and twice as expensive any day over a HDD.

    i7 7700HQ frequent temperature spikes

    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.

    Kaspersky Labs Warns Against Cryptocurrency Social Engineering Schemes

    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.

    Kaspersky Labs Warns Against Cryptocurrency Social Engineering Schemes

    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...

    SSD overheating and underperforming

    I returned the drive and decided to buy a 860 EVO.

    Kaspersky Labs Warns Against Cryptocurrency Social Engineering Schemes

    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.

    QA Consultants Determines AMD's Most Stable Graphics Drivers in the Industry

    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...

    Intel Z370 Chipset Motherboards Get 8-core CPU Compatibility BIOS Updates

    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.

    QA Consultants Determines AMD's Most Stable Graphics Drivers in the Industry

    It was never proven that CTS was paid by Intel , stop making shit up just to spite people. Also , FCAT is just a tool, I literally never heard any complaint about it.

    Pay $160 for the AREZ Sticker: The Mess GPP Landed AIC Partners and Consumers in

    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.

    Need Experts Suggestion: Should Sell my Gtx 1070 Rig now and buy New 11 series Next month? Or keep current Rig, just add new..?

    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.

    Pay $160 for the AREZ Sticker: The Mess GPP Landed AIC Partners and Consumers in

    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...

    Pay $160 for the AREZ Sticker: The Mess GPP Landed AIC Partners and Consumers in

    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...

    More of Apple's stupidly absurd policies...

    When everyone has them it definitely isn't a status symbol anymore. I know people that live in the ghettos and still got an expensive phone, it means nothing in this day and age.

    Apple Updates MacBook Pro with 8th Gen Intel Core Processors

    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...

    SSD overheating and underperforming

    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.

    WWE 2k16 and 2k17 Slow motion issue!

    940mx is a rather weak GPU. Some games instead of dropping frames when there is a fps drop they simply slow down the action , so that's what is probably happening.
