Brainstorm – Animeverzió

AnimeHungarianRantRecommendation 3 comments - Seya.Raysen

Üdv mindenkinek, hosszú kihagyás (lustulás) után ismét itt vagyok. Némi brainstorm várható, ami épp csak megfordult a fejemben.

Elnézve a mai animés trendeket, elgondolkodtam hogy vajon hogy a fenébe lett ilyen gagyi ez az iparág. Valójában tudom miről szól a dolog, ami nem más mint a pénz. A pénz irányít mindent ebben a világban, így már nem az a lényeg, hogy az alkotás jó legyen, hanem jövedelmező. Ez bizony meg is látszik a minőségen.

Why I don’t need a Coffee Lake CPU

EnglishHardwareRant No comments - Kagamin

Let me state this… I think the author of this video is right. But I have many problems with the means in order to reach the maximum performance. And why the heck Intel uses sh*tty thermal paste between the IHS and the die for an overclockable CPU? But I digress…

In order to get your overclockable Coffee Lake CPU to perform much better than Ryzen, you have to:

  • buy a delid tool
  • delid your CPU
  • risk to rekt your CPU
  • void your warranty
  • buy liquid metal thermal compound
  • apply the compound and reseal the CPU
  • buy or have a beefy cooler (like a Cryorig R1 or Noctua NH-D14/15)
  • have a high-end motherboard

Well, that’s quite a bit demand (read: unreasonable) for a performance boost.

A PC enthusiast honest opinion about mining

EnglishHardwareRant 2 comments - Kagamin

DISCLAIMER: I consider myself a PC enthusiast so my opinion about mining is one-sided. And yes, I’m angry.

I wanted to build a new rig… WANTED. As GPU prices hit new records I’m no longer able to buy a new PC. And the sole reason is? MINERS.

Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB pricing chart, source: https://pcpartpicker.com/trends/price/video-card/

Reason of the price jump

I don’t really understand people caring and spending so much about… well, what… mathematical formulas? And worst part is they are not currencies anymore because they are investments. The number of altcoins slowly but steadily will reach the number of the stars on the night sky. This situation is a complete joke except nobody laughing.

That’s where your GPUs went...

Because Linux…

EnglishOperating SystemRant No comments - Kagamin

One of my friend linked me this gemstone. My reaction to this one was…

Man, f*ck gravity!

My favourite quotes from this message:

  • “Is Intel really planning on making this shit architectural? Has anybody talked to them and told them they are f*cking insane?”
  • “And that’s actually ignoring the much _worse_ issue, namely that the whole hardware interface is literally mis-designed by morons.”

These ones are made me giggle. 😀

Update: Bryan Lunduke also uploaded a video about Linus’ reaction.

Argh, Intel…

EnglishHardwareRant No comments - Kagamin

Let’s summarize what he said:

  • So they are into data center stuff… that’s great.
  • We are screwed up but the others too so that’s okay. Derp!
  • We will do some damage control that slows down your CPU but not that much… Hurr!
  • We are the next-gen recording miracle. 
  • We will follow the greatest trend after RGB everything… THE VR THINGY!
  • Oh… neural networking that’s cool stuff.
  • Quantum supremancy from a company that couldn’t make a decent GPU and now using their competitor’s solution… again great.
  • Hidden cameras on the car are impressive.
  • The Trolocopter…
  • And finally a small indoor-capable drone. That’s decent.
