This entire thing is just hyped up to absurdity to sell more CPU's

I think it has more to do with confidence in Intel rather than being genuinely concerned in regards to MDS. Intel has been riding a wave of damage control ever since Spectre and Meltdown was discovered which was further compounded by the scope of the impact as well as the solutions which can undermine performance especially in older systems.

Just two days ago a new MDS, Zombieload, popped up. Intel's potential solution to this? Tell consumers they may have to disabled Hyper Threading. I'm still sure the chances of being affected are microscopic but this is how far down the rabbit hole Intel has found itself.

I'm not at all concerned about my system getting compromised so I've been more or less ignoring the mitigations but it leaves an incredibly sour taste in my mouth when consumers are asked to pick up the slack because Intel put performance over security whereas AMD has hardware mitigation out of the box and are quickly gaining ground.


... this probably doesn't address the point you were making. Caught myself in a tangent.
forum post snippet
"Intel engineers haven't respected ring 0 kernel mode security for ages. Its why their hyper threading has major issues... I mean their unpatched chips basically don't bother to check if bits have permission to be there until after they execute. (just saying it out loud even complete laypersons know that is bad... lets unlock the door and then check and see if that shady looking dude had a key)"

Thanks ChadD

Purchased a 2080TI.

And...? How is it?

I'm about to purchase another 2070. The last one crashed on certain games (DCS), but worked fine for others (E:D). Hoping a new hardware revision, or better drivers will be sufficient.

I don't have it yet. I'll get it in 1-2 weeks, so I'll let you know then.

That puts my current 1080TI likely up for sale. In July 2018, I paid $810 for a MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DirectX 12 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GAMING X 11G 11GB 352-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16. This card is one of the best-in-class 1080TIs. So far, performance remains excellent and without issues. I didn't OC it, so there's plenty of life left in it. I'll likely offer it for $250 (shipping included) which is cheaper than a standard-priced 1080. Highly recommend for anyone on a 960 or less, but not ready to go full 2080 series.

I'd be interested. I'm still running a 670, which still runs great, but not good enough to power my VR HMD. Not really interested in RTX. Send you a PM?

EDIT: Oh, your Blues DM is off. Can you DM me?
I'm in need of a new card, I would buy it if for some reason jdreyer does not. my dm

Funny, I don't remember a Gallup poll on fan reaction to the new Barret. It's almost like Kotaku, ground zero in the culture-war-as-clickbait disease, sees the opportunity to bitch about something while harvesting clicks, without the slightest evidence. But how could that be? That would be like... I don't know... monetizing outrage.

But I'm sure that they actually have a carefully designed poll to gauge "fan" reaction, as opposed to asking a handful of soy-boy colleagues in the desks next to them (who never even played the original)...

Did you unironically call someone "soy boy?"


Yep, it's my "Beamer call." I figure you hear "soy" and just assume you've been summoned.
Spoken like a true troll. Dude, that's sad.

Awww, poor doggie. And yeah, you have to hold them down to get them to let you help them, silly things.

It sort of reminds me of that video where a dolphin had gotten entangled in a fishing line, it was wrapped all around its fin, and the dolphin found two divers and was able to persuade the divers to cut the line off. That video always makes me smile.

Anyway, thanks for helping the doggie, Blue!

there's also video of a humpback whale being freed from a fishing net, and afterwards it followed the boat around for an hour and breached for them dozens of times.
this one?

No it wouldn't. In fact every judge would ask that question. If there are alternatives, why aren't you taking them? Get an education, kid.
Judge: Could you have done anything besides murder those 3 innocent tourists.
Accused: Yes, I could have been playing pinochle.
Judge: Case Dismissed.

When a person violates the law; Whether it was driving drunk, not paying taxes, selling drugs, practicing medicine w/out a license or selling Hack Programs.
The judge does not ask if there was an alternative.

Once again it's you who needs to get an education.

I'm always amused when a place full of people with $2k+ computers that do barely more than a cheaper computer, that upgrade components regularly, act like a 2013 phone is perfectly fine for everyone and only an idiot finds reason to upgrade.
Some people use their phones like those here use their GPUs. There's luxury to it at that point, for both. And it's fine, for both.
Sometimes, on some topics, this place goes full Luddite.

So - could the Titan RTX support raytracing at WQHD at 30 fps? Could it really happen? Find out for just $2,500! Buy two and give one to your friend at Christmas!
Don't give it to your friend before you see if you need two Titans in SLI to achieve that milky smooth console like 30 fps.

Technically, his "choice" was to sleep with an adult.

In the same way that when you buy a sack of flour at the grocery store, you did not choose to buy a brick of cocaine.

Purchasing flour is legal, paying for sex is illegal.
Your analogy, much like the rest of your argument, is seriously lacking.

It re-opens apps after a restart. That porn pop-up dead website or crashed program will still be there upon restart.
