  2. Half a million GPUs

    Ok, they are not current Gen. But it’s still a startling number. The interesting nugget in this story: The vast majority - MSI models...
  3. Gave Edge a shot

    So, in a rare spat of open-mindedness, I decided to give Edge a try. I'm a long time Chrome user - at first because Chrome was a lot cleaner and lighter than most other options, has a nice cross-platform integration with my Mac/Windows environment, but today it's mostly out of habit and the fact...
  4. Opinion - Various responses to COVID inventory challenges: ranked

    So now we are coming up on a year of inventory challenges -- it's been well over a year for COVID, but most of the highly desired electronics didn't release until around September and onward. Roughly ranked from worst to best in my opinion. After I typed this up I ended up doing a good bit of...
  5. Xe is now Arc

  6. MakeMKV?

    Looks like they forgot to pay the rent. I've been a long time MakeMKV/Handbrake guy. What are people doing now to rip their personal home movies?
  7. Used/mined GPUs lose 10% / yr ?

    https://www.pcgamer.com/palit-used-mining-graphics-cards-advice/ Hmm, I saw this, and I have to say I'm skeptical. As much as I despise mining... The first is the source - a AIB provider (Palit). They want to sell new GPUs, the gray market hurts them. So there's a very obvious motif for saying...
  8. Time to jump from Chrome?

    https://www.techradar.com/amp/news/microsoft-edge-is-finally-killing-off-one-of-the-worst-things-about-being-online This might be what it takes to get me to switch from Chrome. Auto play is horrible, and every time I seem to find a “fix” that works, Fox News, CNN, and others find a way around it.
  9. Update or move your podcasts!

    Just a friendly note - Landed on the front page (I admit often I just jump to the forums) and noticed that your podcasts are prominently displayed along the top right there. Which is fine. Except they haven't been updated in months - there are two from October 2020, and it kinda makes the...
  10. MSI solves GPU shortage with new releases

    https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiEMM__D4U7Zc8onp2bZ0RehkqMwgEKioIACIQ4eZVCfUvh0fQ2m7Cn7ChFyoUCAoiEOHmVQn1L4dH0Npuwp-woRcws_fLBg?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen This will fix everything
  11. EA code stolen

    https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/06/10/tech/electronic-arts-hack/index.html Mostly just embarrassing for EA - the game matching code for FIFA may be an interesting revelation, as EA had pulled some patents for game matching algorithms to improve spending (like matching better paying players with...
  12. HDD / SSD Caching still a thing?

    So I remember things like Apple's Fusion Drive and AMDs StorMi used to be a thing - where you used an SSD as a cache for an HDD. The theory was that it would get you SSD-like speeds for most of your stuff, but still give you the storage advantage of HDDs. Did these die off? Are there any...
  13. Newegg Shuffle

    So, I complained pretty vocally about the EVGA queue system. Still pretty disappointed in that. I'd be amazed if I get a notification from that before the cards are totally obsolete or I'm dead from old age. So a lot of people seem to be having some luck with Newegg Shuffle. It's not always...
  14. Moar 5000 series CPUs

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-ramps-up-Ryzen-5000-supply-to-counter-Rocket-Lake-availability-advantage.530800.0.html But since I’m not aware of any huge increase in TSMC capacity - it means it comes at the expense of something else: Probably Not Epyc - those are high margin Probably not...
  15. Intel - Don't call it a come back

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/03/23/intel-makes-foundry-strategy-shift-under-new-ceo-pat-gelsinger-.html At least not yet. They have a plan - and that's good. But plans are only as good as their execution. There was also an article over at Tom's stating that Intel had "fixed" their 7nm process...
  16. Grr.. NAS died

    Been running a Synology DS412+ since... shortly after they came out. Been a nice unit, software stays upgraded by the company even though it's older, performs well enough for what I use it for, and has been online pretty much 24-7 since I got it. Couple of weeks ago, I notice a degradation...
  17. Starlink

    Dishy came in today. Ships with the dish, a small tripod, a router (which I am not using - plugging straight to the dish works with your own router via bridged/DHCP, so I’m using an edgerouter), and the biggest POE adapter I’ve very seen. It has pre-terminated CAT cables - which makes it...
  18. Teams down!

    And there was much rejoicing throughout the land https://news.google.com/articles/CAIiEA6qWIIVWa9f0yVv8WTf3SAqFwgEKg4IACoGCAow3O8nMMqOBjCkztQD?hl=en-US&gl=US&ceid=US%3Aen
  19. What happened to the EGVA queue anyway?

    Seems like they kinda gave up on it around December?
