    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    Yeah, the only issue with that idea is that Nvidia did indeed position the RTX 3000 series as a better value than the RTX 2000 series. Plus the refinement with Raytracing is a massive bonus, as well as its absolute mastery in the 1080p and even 1440p area. It can't really be beat, if you can get...

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    There's no way that that can be the truth. I waited outside Microcenter on launch day, and they only had 14 in stock. And it was the same every day after that too. There's no way that this is normal. You can't launch a product with just 15 or so per store. No, this was either calculated, or...

    What exactly is the deal with GPUs

    Yeah, there have been a few days where Microcenter really does have enough for just about everyone in line, or at least everyone who cared to show up even a few minutes before it opened. So what's the DEAL with GPUs??

    I think that a lot of people do indeed understand vaccine theory and the science behind it. But there is one little thing on their mind: What if the vaccines are intentionally corrupted or given additives? What about microchips? Microphones don't need to be that big. Is that too fringe? Maybe...

    World Wide Web creator, Tim Berners-Lee, sad to see his invention being used for evil, hatches plan to take it back

    Then you misread and misheard everything I said. It is the opposite. Only a fool would legitimately dispute you. To be utterly clear, all I can say is that your paranoia is not paranoia: It is the actual intention of those who would begin to surveil and control us. If they had their way, what...

    Face it. Shikami is in this thread, and a lot of us might be thinking the same thing. Even me, with my other posts here. "Shikami might be taking this paranoia thing too seriously. He's nuts!" Yeah, too many deep-youtube videos, weird conspiracies, and other things that seem to go too far...

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    Wow, what a dream! But I don't think I quite believe in that dream, so I think my money will go to someone who will do something useful instead. Sorry, champ.

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    Yeah, investment isn't gambling unless you treat it like it is. The most absolute core aspect to investing is very simple: Invest in a small business that needs funding assistance. A small company that wants to build something big, but just doesn't have the budget. Invest in the little guy...

    Thanks Elon you screwed us

    Ha, shows them right. Well, I'm certainly happy to see you succeed. But all I meant is that it's easy to say, "Just go big and live rich," but not nearly as hard to actually invest A LOT into something, and then have it multiply your money enough for it to free you from the shackles of employment.

    Gee, you guys sure are snarky about something you don't HAVE to buy. It's a luxury good. You're lucky I'm not charging $1500 or more for this. ;)

    5800X Sanded Flat

    Smooth peanut butter always. I've never tried the light cheese stuff. It'd probably be a little TOO gooey. I recommend keeping these cheesy, but not too cheesy. That's why this CPU is confirmed to actually work, despite the cheesy ad.

    5800X Sanded Flat

    Peanut butter to Cheez Whiz. Or you can do what I do, and put your preferred thermal paste in a cup of boiling water until it's hot. Then it'll be gooey.

    5800X Sanded Flat

    How seriously are you taking this? I'm not some sanded-cpu-salesman. Did you think that this is my professional job or something? I'm just having a good time. I sanded it for myself quite awhile ago, and now I want to upgrade. All I can do is put it into my computer to prove that I didn't break...

    That's just the individual core wattage. It's hidden to conserve screenshot space. If you want more information, just ask. And sleazy? Of course it's an over-the-top sales description. It's just sanding a CPU. Either you get it or you don't. It is what it is. If you don't like the price or the...

    If you want to avoid voiding warranties, don't sand or overclock. If you're enthusiastic, then let's have a great time voiding warranties.

    You can mock me having used a stock image, but you can't mock the process of sanding a CPU IHS. Here, the proof you all crave!! It reflects the [H] logo off my monitor about as well as you'd expect. If you don't want one that's been sanded, then buy one that's BNIB.

    Ok, full disclosure, that's just a stock photo from the internet. The 5800X is in my PC but redoing the thermal paste job is a hassle. But MY SANDING JOB IS BETTER!! Fine, I'll go take a photo soon.

    As the reviewer noted, the card functioned at normal mining speeds for about a minute before the speed got cut in half. So it certainly does seem to be trying to detect mining. That means the card works normally and good for gamers.

    Yeah, true success relies on thinking not just long-term, but ultra-long-term. Decades are not enough to truly develop an advanced civilization that will stand the test of time. Even now, 21st century science, technology, and knowledge hardly impress me. We must go further. Join me, Sir...

    The funny part is that the more work you go to to hide yourself, the more you'll look like you have something to hide. The simple truth is that we should have an expectation of privacy, and it should be absolutely forbidden to gather our information or spy on our communications. Forbidden for...

    Yeah, but good luck opening a fabrication facility. Three hurdles: Government clearance. Funding. Knowledge. Even if you somehow get the OK to build a plant somewhere, how will you afford to hire people to build it? Where do you even find people who would be able to do it? Furthermore, even if...

    Yeah, you're basically right. If a person finds that they're being called a communist, it doesn't mean they're actually a communist. But communism is the sort of viral idea that we already have an immune response to. When people detect the proteins and building blocks of communism, they...

    The sorts of powerful sources that can break or create backdoors in AES-256 are not likely to tell you that it is broken. We can only hope.

    Paranoia pays off. Trust doesn't. When were the paranoid ever wrong? No really, look back on cyber history and tell me that the paranoid were wrong before 2010, before those NSA revelations. Tell me the paranoid were wrong back when phreaking was a thing. Paranoia always pays off. If the...

    In the future, it might mean loyalty to buying high-end cards because it's fun to have powerful computer hardware versus buying mid or low-end cards because you want to game, but every company is a villainous rat. Or worse. You might just decide you don't want to deal with any of these...

    I do a similar thing, but I run my computer through the wall of my office into my bedroom. I have a full setup, including aluminum mouse pad and a nice TKL keyboard, as well as a ton of DEDICATED USB ports. I'm using the Dark Hero motherboard, so I've got loads of USB slots, and I route a bunch...

    A Physicist Has Worked Out The Math That Makes 'Paradox-Free' Time Travel Plausible

    I don't think that it does, in that case. If a theory is not modeling reality correctly, then either the theory is incomplete, or wrong. Therefore, I would compare reality more to a fractal pattern than a Hilbert space, where a fractal is defined as a simple equation, but always viewed as a...

    A Physicist Has Worked Out The Math That Makes 'Paradox-Free' Time Travel Plausible

    Yes it does. The models you speak of are quite likely wrong. There is absolutely no reason to think that the direction of time is not linked to the fact that only one result occurs BECAUSE only one result CAN occur. It is logical to think that all events follow the path of least resistance...

    A Physicist Has Worked Out The Math That Makes 'Paradox-Free' Time Travel Plausible

    Yet, I still cannot find any answer to the position that "If time travels in only one direction, then due to the fact that only one result occurs, only one result CAN occur." Who will be able to answer this? No matter what our 21st century models suggest, as opposed to what our 31st century...

    People overly biased in either direction don't really appeal to my intellectual or philosophical side. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is either impassioned, but balanced, or just mildly interested, and can still easily notice when some people seem to have a religious fervor for or against...
