speed_demon If Elon Musk's argument is to be believed then we are living in it. Or rather our non base reality inspired the matrix's design.

I dunno. I still want to know if there is a scientific way to prove what is or isn't base reality.

Kaltenbrunner Where's the matrix so I can upload all computer science to my brain overnight

Yeah, free cores were the best, my 1605T served me well until very recently and would still be in service if AM3+ multi pci-e x16 unlocking boards were not so scarce..

He's got all the research he needs provided weekly by Intel's PR team with the check.

Not like the old days though everything is binned now, flashing an 850xt to a 850xtPE was the best.

Anyhoose this is another reminder to run noscript. Its a perfect attack vector and apparently now we have JS that can run sidechannel attacks.
Nothing new to see here the vectors opened up from parallel processing are going to continue to give us exploits its just the nature of the beast apparently.

Haha, lol.
The EPYC 64C runs at 2.15Ghz.

bigjdubb I don't think the performance is awful, but it's not exactly a great improvement over the last gen parts. Very likely to stop feeling like flagship performance once we get the new mobile parts from AMD though.
