    Question about Threadripper Pro processors

    Pretty much all you can get now too. Compatibility with any Zen 3 versions is unknown. It’s likely, but anything aimed at business use (ie the mobos) doesn’t generally expect people to upgrade. You just depreciate and bin it.

    Intel 7700k to AMD 5900x

    I went from 7700k to 3960X and I was actually surprised how much of a difference it made in day to day snappiness of general office and windows stuff, not just the work stuff I bought it for. I imagine the Zen 3 stuff would be that and then some.

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    I think that’s nonsense, it’s all down to the company’s themselves. There are Chinese and British companies with extraordinary quality, just as there are some that are absolute shit. You’re just less able to do low margin low quality stuff on developed economy wages. If you’re doing contract...

    Nvidia’s GeForce Now has been quietly capping its founders’ frame rates

    It’s what investors require of you. Get people in and then crank the screws. I imagine someone will just have been seeing how much they can trim down the vgpu allocation until people squeal. If a fuss gets kicked up, say it was a mistake and roll back. Else just keep going. I made a lot of...

    Apple announces Self Service Repair

    You don’t really have much choice to use assemblies etc, the tolerances on modern devices are insane. It’s not like getting a waterproof computer arguably more powerful than a circa 2013 desktop, in a device weighing a couple of hundred grams is electronically trivial. Even 10 years ago they...

    AMD Celebrates 5 Years of Ryzen Processors

    Jeez that’s gone quick. I hadn’t looked at the share price for a little while either. Now in third place for return percentage behind Apple and Amazon. Bought in April 2017. I told soooooo many people to buy them too, all because I was following it on [H] My three greatest stock picks, based...

    VMware Workstation vs. Oracle VM VirtualBox

    Neither, use kvm with a pass through gpu.

    Is this GPU Artifacting

    Pretty sure it is but it's been a very long time since I've had that as a problem (overdoing an OC on a Radeon probably) but I've had this come up on windows desktop a couple of times and wondering what the cause is. Basically get black squares all over the screen. Sorry for potato like...

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    Local retailers in Australia still hadn’t fulfilled all the 3080 orders from Day 1 (particularly asus) before the Ti came out. My 3090 was the same price or cheaper than the 3080 Ti’s are now. All a bit mad. Then again I can’t get a new Xbox or PS5 either.

    why is AMD always behind on video decoding support? if decoding is a separate module?

    We’ve come so far, I remember having to reduce the size of windows to get video playing smoothly.

    FBI supposedly finds flaw with Bitcoin wallet encryptions

    I’ve got 20 bitcoins from the very early days that I cant access. I’d bribe a federal agent to get access to them them fo’ sho’ They should do it as a service, they’d make a fortune 😂

    How much RAM you got?

    General purpose. I collapsed all my machines into one. So I can do computer vision, games, development, ML and my office machine… all at the same time if I want. Generally all just runs as a vm on Linux but I can boot to windows if I want. keep meaning to play around with...

    Cloud services from a developers perspective

    Azure Devops is fine, it’s not really that close to azure itself except for aad and the attached services like repos are shit in comparison to just using GitHub. (Pipelines is ok but you end up just using custom agents and at that point its value is diminished). GitHub actions are great but a...

    Cloud services from a developers perspective

    if you just do exactly what you do on premise in cloud, it’s 30% more expensive. Though lower if you have less than 1000 workloads, just factoring for staff, operations and maintainance. If you develop services that run in cloud native architectures then it will be far far cheaper but the...
