Re: Interesting render engine, silly topic
Quote: The render engine used however is quite a clever bit of coding and modeling. It's quite capable of generating some truly stunning results. (If you have enough time on a render farm to spit out results.
My understanding was that the Nvidia demo of the Moon landing was done in real time on a pair of GTX 980's not a render farm.
Watch the video and really look at the part where they pan the camera away from the L.E.M. camera view (with the bright light at the base of the ladder) to see that that light was from the sun bouncing off of Armstrong's space suit.
Demo was way cool.
One says "electrocution" the other "only fire"
Did she die of electrocution or just a fire?
This story just states she died in a fire:
So why the different causes of death?
Which one is the real cause?
Okay, those who accept the higher prices (2 to 1) should pay twice what they are today so that ones who don't (the one in the 2 to 1) otherwise is just another forced tax on those in the minority position.
Re: It's empty!
Fantastic. I wonder how many here got your UFO quote. That was and still is a favorite show of mine and the episode you quote from was a Mind Bender (Pun intended).
AMD always has "One Time Charges"
AMD always has "One Time Charges" and the reason for GAAP is so that companies that try to cook the books would be caught. AMD seem to be one of those companies that try really hard to have investors/analysts/public ignore the GAAP numbers.
Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)
A better deal
Get a Refurbished "Lenovo ThinkCentre M58p Small Form Factor Desktop Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz 2GB RAM 160G HDD DVDROM Windows 7 Home Premium" for $89.99.
Most users still on XP are just using it for basic tasks and the above system is more than powerful enough for those tasks and it comes with Windows 7.
I bought one to replace my wifes aging XP machine,
Yes, Seagate's and Western Digital's infant mortality rate are fantastically BAD.
When these drive makers went to a 1 year warranty it was a clear signal that they were making crap drives.
And those 1.5 GB drives were very bad. I had purchased 2 WD WD15EARS drives and one was DOA on arrival. The replacement drive I kept as replacement drive for my 4.5 TB Raid 5 external eSATA ( 4 x 1.5 TB) and was tested during it's warranty period and was found to have become defective. So a RMA on an RMA not good at all.
You also forgot to mention that AMD launch is a paper one as the card won't be available until Q2 2014 whereas Nvidia card is a hard launch and is available now.
Intel has cheated with benchmarks before
So why is this a surprise to anyone.
AMD had finally added SSE instructions in the early 2000's to finally perform well in the multimedia portion of the tests when Intel added specific code to not run SSE code unless the processor was "Genuine Intel" so AMD had to execute the code slower on the CPU. There were specific configuration bits on processors that tell if instructions like SSE are on a CPU but Intel knowingly inserted the "Genuine Intel" to hobble AMD.
This Atom cheat was again probably specific since the end results were many articles about how Intel's new Atom crushes ARM. So far I do not see any changes in those original articles so the damage is done and many believe that Intel has crushed ARM.
Well done again Intel. When you fail in competition then Lie Lie Lie and Cheat Cheat Cheat.
Re: Texas ADULT
Both this article and the one linked state TEEN to gain some sympathy and to invoke the image of a child. An eighteen year old is an ADULT in the eyes of the law.
And as you state where do shitkickers like yourself who obviously can't even do a basic search learn how to use computers.
Texas ADULT who posted threats about killing school children can't make bail
That is a more accurate title. Oh, thats right an accurate title would not generate enough web hits.
Also this is an old story.
Teen remains jailed after violent comments posted on Facebook
Titan has passed rigorous acceptance testing
Reg quote: The entry of Tianhe-2 at the top has pushed down other systems in the June rankings, of course. The "Titan" XK7 ceepie-geepie at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which has not been formally accepted by the lab yet,
Yes it has: OAK RIDGE, Tenn., June 12, 2013 — Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Titan supercomputer has completed rigorous acceptance testing to ensure the functionality, performance and stability of the machine, one of the world's most powerful supercomputing systems for open science.
And please put that finger where the sun doesn't shine or in your mouth whichever results in you becoming less of an *ss.
Don't let any FACTS get in the way of your malicious rant
Nvidia isn’t a defendant in the case.
DATA Plan reverts to AT&T's higher pricing after the year one teaser
>> 'insanely low pricing on its data plan ($50 per year)'
That should read 'teaser rate of $50 for year one followed by a 360% increase when you will then be required to purchase a LTE DATA Plan from AT&T at the $14.99 per month price for the same 250mb"
Re: Dr. Who is a lot of shite, and everyone knows it
This from Mr Big Pile of #2. And everyone means you and your friends in the bathroom, right.
Methane has greenhouse effect many times more powerful than carbon dioxide.
Methane has greenhouse effect many times more powerful than carbon dioxide yet somehow the planet didn't cook itself to death yet with some small of additional CO2 it will.
