Intel Vs. AMD Anonymous 12/25/2019 (Wed) 03:05:57 No. 686 [Reply] [Last]
Building a new computer soon. I've been out of the market for a decade and much has changed. I've seen a lot of news about AMD overtaking Intel in the desktop processor market, but have never been an AMD fan. I am seriously considering AMD for my next build, but am concerned about processor heat, longevity, and linux compatibility. Intel will also release their new line of processors early next year, and I am tempted to wait for that. AMD has also been gunning for Nvidia, but currently does not have a superior graphics card. There is so much conflicting information online, and so many AMD fanboys it is difficult to find objective information on what to put in a build. I used to turn to YouTube for information, but so many channels appear to be bought and paid for. I am curious to hear what /g/'s consensus is on what to put in a new build. I plan to spend roughly 4k on the desktop and 1.5k on a high-res 200Hz monitor. I plan to use linux for my main OS and Windows for gaming and video editing. Also curious to hear about storage options. I'd like to use 2 or 4 M.2 SSDs for in pairs of RAID0 for the OS and 2 or 4 HDDs for backup. Anyone have a more effective/cost efficient setup? Appreciate your responses.

I'm going to assume this is the general computer build thread I've had a skylake 6700k + 1060 build for years now. I've looked into upgrading it a few times now but it's never seemed like the cost-benefit lined up. Mostly I'm just a low-res frametime autist so I'd be looking to reduce stuttering at 120 / 144 hz. I DGAF about any graphics settings besides draw distance. All my monitors are 1080p so i don't care at all about high-res, just maximum fast and smooth. >botnet use a separate LUKS encrypted drive for normie linux stuff and an entirely separate machine + VPN + tor for shitposting so it's not particularly critical for this machine. got a million other machines I can play tuxcart on already The new ryzen CPUs seem pretty cool but they seem like they're mostly just wider in cores, not all that much faster in single core. I render videos and bulk convert mp3s once in a while but not really that much. I specced out a 8c/16t build but couldn't really justify the new cpu and mini-ITX mobo for the small improvement. So mostly it's the graphics card. I picked up the 1060 6GiB with the intention I might upgrade at some point, but then the buttcoin meme blew up and sent prices to the stratosphere so I sat it out. Anyone know roughly when I can expect CPUs to have 1.5-2x single-thread performance for ~$250 or GPUs to have ~2x performance at the ~$250 level? I remember the old days when that shit happened like clockwork every 2 years....
alright well I just checked newegg and wew lad prices are still fucking retarded. still higher than when I bought in late 2016. what a clusterfuck. guess I'll just sit this out until 5nm happens or something
>>686 I would go AMD for the CPU. Just like with cars, maybe don't buy the very first stepping of a new product (so don't get the ryzen 4000 series yet) but the 3000 series and older should be fine now. They did have some very embarrassing bugs re linux compatibility that marred an otherwise very strong launch. Intlel hasn't been all that great these days (understatement) with all the Speed Holes they've been putting in their products. The only reason I would go Intel on a new build is if the one and only thing you plan to do with your computer is game. Intel still has a thin lead of about 10% in frame rates on some games, but they squeeze this edge out by just running fucking fast and hot. like seriously socket-melting hot, intel TDP means nothing at all these days, check out the meme measurements under synthetic loads. If I was in the market for a 'reasonable' machine I would probably go with an 8c/16t ryzen. If you're going to go balls out I would get one of the memerippers with 16c/32t which should sort of future-proof you for a world that is begrudgingly moving towards multi-threaded software. I wouldn't get an AMD gpu though. it's my understanding that the one good thing is they are a little cheaper for same performance in the lower end but you pay for it with heat and power distribution, not very efficient. Every single year some AMD people say "just wait" and it never gets here as far as I can tell. If you're serious about the $4k price range I'd probably just get a 1080ti. I think the only real improvements to the 2080ti is the snake oil RTX stuff, they upped the transistor count a bunch but GFLOPS basically the same. Or go all out and get the latest Titan or something if you want to go balls to the wall with 24 GiB ram but $2500 is pretty fucking steep if it's not a work expense for CUDA. If I was buying a GPU at a more 'reasonable' price point i'd look at the 2070 Super, 1070Ti, 1070, 1660 Super, etc in roughly descending cost order.
>>806 Thanks for the advice. I ended up getting a fully specced Thinkpad P1 (except chose the IPS 4k display instead of OLED touch) and got the minimum ram and ssd. Ordered my own 32GB Corsair ram and 2x 500GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus drives from Amazon. M.2 drives are in RAID0. The laptop screams, it was an excellent choice. I put the money for the desktop into bitcoin, hopefully it goes up by black friday. The laptop will make it much easier for me t wait until then. I plan to get a 3970X and a 2080Ti for a screaming deal and I'll basically have a laptop and a desktop for the price I was intending to buy the desktop at earlier this year. I got an incredible deal on the Thinkpad as I got my company discount on top of a huge sale.

>>776 Got a recommended site to look up local police frequencies? I think my department around here is smart enough to encrypt their radios but you never know. What band/approx frequency range are your local transmissions on? I've got a RTLSDR sitting around and have been meaning to get started with it
>>777 https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/ It's kind of boring now with the lock down, so there isn't anything on the channel I listen to. But normally there's chatter about shoplifting, and occasionally shots fired or so. But I live in a large city, so if you live somewhere that's like ~10,000 people and 2% nigger I'd imagine it's not going to be very interesting.

Red-pill me (and I'm sure others) on Quantum computing. Lets not get left behind in a new computing age.
>>707 It’s a completely meme. Not useful for anything outside of some very niche scientific applications.
>>708 yet
It's just multi-state computing, like using a trinary or larger base. Currently our computers work with little pseudo-switches that are either on or off, 0 or 1. Using multi-state switches you can exponentially increase computing power BUT... it just means a faster computer. It's not like it's going to magically turn into some kind of AI singularity due to inherent mathematical limitations, namely the "curse of dimensionality". Also keep in mind our computers, even quantum computers, currently use a flow of electrons... which means they use mono-dimensional energy. It's possible though to use other energy forms, even biochemical energy forms as well as modulated energy forms, like light wavelengths in order to create photonic processors. And then of course, if you want to go full science fiction you could theoretically create a quantum temporal processor using tachyons. Where a calculation could be performed and then the results of the calculation could be sent back in time by a few nanoseconds. So basically the computer would know the results of a calculation before it even performed it. And the further back in time the weirder it would get. For example if information could be sent back in time by a few seconds it would be possible to create a computer that would know what you want before you even knew you wanted it. Essentially an interface-less computer. The interface would be there, but you wouldn't actually need to use it.

Don't know too much but you will need an alternative when transistors are only the size of one atom because you've reached a bottle neck.

Phone OS Alternatives Anonymous 03/23/2020 (Mon) 23:19:44 No. 773 [Reply] [Last]
Fuck every major phone OS but especially fuck jewgle and its 'open-source' android, 90% of which is preinstalled bloatware and spyware. Fuck having no possibility to do anything except push pre-existing buttons. Touch-screen devices are the epitome of walled-garden-style computers, their functionality intentionally reduced to a point where even a nigger can buy one and push all the buttons he likes without having to worry about fucking anything up. I've resigned to the fact that all smartphones are just spyware a long time ago, so I got used to just clenching my teeth like a good goy while jewgle fucked me in the ass with every app I couldn't uninstall and setting I couldn't change. But enough is enough, so I'm here to open a discussion about phone operating systems, so that others may read it and free themselves from nigger-tier techology. I'm looking for open-source linux, a bash terminal, and, as much as possible, avoiding any service provided by google nigger-kikes. Looking at ddg hits, articles on recommended OSs all strike me as clueless and written for monkeys, so I'm asking here: What OS does your smartphone run, how satisfactory is the functionality it offers?
My phone is running LineageOS, which is GPL licensed. In fact, it is an important requirement for me to figuer out whether a phone has a LineageOS package or something similar when i am choosing my phone.
I want to check out the Pinephone but they're all out of stock.

Idea for a political game Anonymous 02/20/2020 (Thu) 05:53:20 ID:7afcb4 No. 810 [Reply] [Last]
it's a civilization game where you take charge of a small group of people at the beginning of time and try to raise it to a great civilization. the difference here is that you choose specific policies for you civilization, and the results of any set of policies are based upon how exactly how those sets of policies worked in the past. eventually, the player community will determine which policies are the best to use. everything is designed to be a 1:1 depiction of reality, as close as possible, even the way you take control of you initial population is also true to the way the first human societies were formed. there is also the distribution of genes among your people and the lifeforms around you, all of which are affected by your decisions as well, along with the environment, and each individual's genes determines their traits just as they would in real life. Genetic data is largely hidden from you until you have the tech to see it, and actually ask for that information to be determined for you. speaking of which, you can ask those under you to gather information, you also get updates on the visible affects of your policies on the people, though some of the less visible stuff must be actively looked into. you cannot directly choose the advancement of technology or culture like you do in sid mier's, nor do you directly instruct people to build structures (if you want a wall, you choose policies concerning border security, and a wall follows from that), people who are not politicians are the ones who do that, you are a political leader, not a scientist, engineer, architect, or artist, your power is strictly political in nature, only the ability of a real human leadership is given to you, though this means that you do not need to conduct research to discover political policies, you simply have all of them available to you from the beginning. on that note, you can choose from any political policy that has ever existed or from any political policy that had ever been proposed (the effects of these will need to be extrapolated from what is already known, or what is most likely).

>>813 I'm working on something similar. Think like how (((they))) put propaganda in everything except this game is going to all but name (((them)))
here is how katawa shoujo was made: - Idea guy posts image and states basic premise - Other anons think it's a good idea and start recruiting assigning roles, forming a small dev team "four leaf studios" - team begins creating game and posting updates, eventually releases demo and starts collecting fund via donations - more than enough is gathered to finish the project and so they do a bit extra notice how the idea guy doesn't get told to do it all by himself, notice how the idea guy is not even involved in the project past the first step. this is how a jewish movie is made: - jew producers find a barebones concept for a film from pitches - they hire a team of writers (not the idea guys) to flesh it out into a plot/script - they recruit a team of directors, actors, etc. (probably some of them will be jews) and production starts - any of the above may be altered in the course of production, but usually the core premise of the project remains the same (not always, however)

>>819 Sounds like a less shit verison of Nation States. You would have to limit the amount of options to pick from though as you would need to caculate the outcome for all them. I could see that working though, having a drop-down for Currency Backing for instance (Labour Backed Fiat, Gold, Silver, Unbacked) and then the money disturbtion (Private Bond Aggragate /State through public works). I could see that working. >>826 I was thinking of remaking it in Brutal Doom some time ago, gave up because of texture issues but it may be duable with the "final release". It honestly would fit better as a Brutal Doom wad. It would probally look better tbh, Ethnic Cleansing was pain on the eyeballs and the fucking shadows? It's like you're playing as the El Paso shooter but the dork left his glasses at home.

Hello, this is not a shill post. So I decided to create my own chan in python as a hobby (using the flask library) and this is what I have come up with so far. Just give me feedbacks here in this thread or there. Currently you can only upload jpeg , jpg , png , gif below the size of 4mb. https://rikchan.pythonanywhere.com

Woo, pays to make an offer! I even still got free shipping! D: Apparently it was the last one they had tho so they were probably just trying to get rid of it. I was about to trash the entire monitor too (since it's like a decade old). Didn't feel like soldering in new caps (especially since my soldering iron doesn't work very good). Plus it probably would have cost the same amount (if not more) for new caps. Granted it'll still probably burn out in 2 to 3 years, buuuut... I just need a dumpy second monitor to watch YouTube videos on while I'm doing other stuff, so it's not like it's some grand investment. For as often as capacitors fail (due to how cheap ass they're made) they really should start thinking about making them modular for quick/easy replacement... but then again I think maybe they do it on purpose... "planned obsolescence" and all like that. I think most of the caps are designed to fail at roughly the same time the warranty gives out.
