14. Intel 10nm and then 7nm and AMD? Feb 23, 2015, 21:26 eRe4s3r
 
Amd is plodding along with 28nm (it's "newest mobile CPU anyway)

Intel is getting a massive domination going here, and as AMD cpu user that saddens me! My next cpu is most definitely going to be Intel, let's see whether I can survive on my old Phenom II x6 until that next next generation of cpu's comes ;p

All info that is known is that sometime 2016 AMD will figure out how to build a desktop CPU again. At 14nm... but by then Intel is going to be at 10nm....

Also interesting is that due to higher power requirements in GPU's, they haven't figured out how to go beyond 20nm (which explains why AMD is using 28nm fabs)... the process used for 14nm and 10nm apparently has massive problems with power leakage... So gpu's are going to be jumping straight to 7nm? Wouldn't this mean a massive jump in performance and power savings / heat reduction?

Ah, the next 5 years are going to be another great time for tech stuff

That read took or a turn for the interesting.. but.... the people that had these problems were really not very smart in how they handled this. That first women in particular, she was annoyed at a spambot, that's hilarious if that video she put on youtube hadn't been so sad. She came about as a hysteric with zero argumentation ability. (Hint, this is why you never confront people about an serious issue alone). Very sad all around but the Internet is what it is.

I mean for fucks sake, there are ENTIRE CHANNELS (on youtube) that crawl the web for stuff (genre name -> "Why would you put that on the Internet?" )

If by fine you mean less than 0.05% of the global gaming market.. then sure

Personally I would really like if the people in charge would get their head out of that cloud and start working towards making Linux an actual gaming OS, with proper API support, binary blobs, auto updating of drivers etc.

I'd be opposed to a medicine that prevented smokers from getting lung cancer, because that'd force EVERYONE ELSE in their vicinity to also get that medicine....

yet everyone here is saying it is pay to win... ???

Although we've beaten the pay-to-win discussion to death, I'm interested in how buying a $1200 ship isn't paying to win. That ship will give an advantage to some players over others. Let's hear how it doesn't.


The game needs to come through with it's one promise. Player run servers. If it does P2W will mean nothing on them.

I don't see how player run servers are even feasible at this point.

Maybe if you have a server cluster it's doable, as in you rent some MS Azure or AWS servers and spin them up, but I have trouble imagining one consumer-grade computer running a full universe simulation, unknown planetary-side simulations, AND run FPS simulations- simultaneously.

I can see a minimum of one server for each along with maybe a master server that coordinates everything, with additional server spinning up for every X number of players. Not to mention the bandwidth required for that kind of server hosting- it'd be kind of a nightmare.

An expensive nightmare too... I am still only along for the ride for the SP portion.. the other persistent nonsense doesn't interest me.

And like you I see feature creep and it makes me wonder how this is even going to work. Squadron 42 is an entirely different game it seems, using systems that were developed for persistent world but offline in SP. And how is persistence even going to work with user hosted servers? I mean i can see how you could simulate FPS and ship battles in 1 "sector" at the same time, no problem. But what if there are 50 such battles across 50 sectors?

I think the more this game takes shape, the more people will realize that what they backed might not actually be what the this game ends up with. Let's hope SP is not that ;/

Fact is if player run servers are not possible to do there will be a giant shit storm coming. And there already seems to be confusion whether "player run servers" applies to the PU stuff, or just the simulator stuff (ie single missions or dogfights).

And to be honest, I don't see how this game is not going to be a giant clusterfuck on release anyway with these huge modules. And persistent universe crap already ruined 1 perfectly good game previously pure SP game (Elite Dangerous)

Never had a facebook page. Never wanted one. I made up a facebook identity once... you may know ... " and it was the name of a friend's father. So they managed to cross reference me somehow. Kinda creepy.
Anyway, fuck facebook. Never saw a reason to use it when it started and I definitely see no reason to use it now.

I have something somewhat similar, at least in the creepiness factor. A few years ago my wife's friends kept bugging her to sign up, so she finally started working on it. I figured I'd go ahead and make one too, just as some kind of moral support. Anyway, signed up, clicked the verification link, then logged in to my wall. Already had quite a few 'you may know' possibilities, and seriously, less than a minute in, I had a post from my uncle saying hey, didn't know you were on here. I was just thinking WTF! How'd you find me so fast? Just friggin weird.
I never use it though. I've made one post in the last 2 or 3 years since I made it.

from what I can tell Facebook actually informs you when someone joins that it thinks is related to you, that's absolutely fucking creepy by the way ! (I do not use Facebook and never will) but that's what I heard....

Oh, I recommended it when I had less hours in it. Yes, I suppose you could argue I've "gotten my money out of it" if you ignore the frustrating effects of unrealized potential. I got in early on it, hoping it would grow into something great. If it worked properly, I'd recommend it.

They HAVE my money, I was telling the rest of you not to buy so that you wouldn't waste YOURS. Also, I haven't bought (and won't be buying) medieval engineers. I've learned my lesson.

Well after MineWars or what it was called I didn't ever plan on buying anything from them, so yeah

"Successful launch of Space Engineers?" It's still languishing in early access.

Don't buy from these Shysters. I should have heeded the warning when they abandoned Minerwars 2081. Space Engineers is still very alpha, very buggy, very unfinished, has no endgame other than multiplayer, and multiplayer is unplayable due to shit netcode.

And that's coming from a guy with 600+ hours, and made one of the most popular tutorial serieses for the game.

"Don't by from these Shysters" and "I have 600+ hours in this game" are pretty incongruent. Sounds like you got your money's worth, why wouldn't you recommend it?

As he said, he expected development, and with 600 hours into a game you can assume he knows what parts of the game never saw development...

That said, with 600 hours in I too think you [OP] got your moneys worth

Exploding kittens at 8.3m and then this + Ukraine crisis, makes one wonder why you ever had faith to begin with.

Humans are stupid.. not all of them, but sadly enough of them. (Although I am not sure peer pressure is stupid, or whether that is not more like.. social nonsense people subscribe to because they want to be "part of the group" or something...

I'll believe Broken Age Act 2 exists when I have it (and it's longer than 3 hours) Act 1 was a huge disappointment when at the same you have stuff like The Dark Eye - Memoria or Chains of Satinav. That has both a gripping story, complex characters and exceptional artwork.

Grmpf.. still kinda regretting buying that..

Sadly this KS shows that you need to actually be fully behind it 24/7 if you want to succeed.

an entire week without updates, no greenlight campaign.. etc.

If I were to do a KS, it'd be synced with a greenlight campaign on Steam, a proper demonstration of gameplay, and updates that I'd have planned out ahead of time every 1 or 2 days.

And most importantly, KS sells hope, not games.
