All the capacitor stuff was just people repeating and amplifying speculation from igors lab or whatever.

As it turns out there's already a driver fix with no performance impact so it looks like the whole cap thing was much ado about nothing.

EVGA did corroborate the findings saying they discovered the all 'poscap' design didn't pass their testing.

It’s always funny to me how engineers in several countries have rings made of conductive material (“iron”, but actually steel) on the pinkie finger, so very exposed.

I know a guy who got zapped by the 96v ringing voltage on a SONET backplane, after that he stopped wearing the ring :haw:

There are great chairs but keep in mind every one is different and what works for you won't work for someone else. I try to pick up Steelcase Leap v2 chairs on Kijiji for about $350CAD used whenever I need one for home or office. They're great chairs and there always seems to be used ones around.

Yeah most people will have 'minor cases' which is why this virus is so difficult to contain. Someone telling everyone they feel relatively fine is not some virus-conspiracy signaling. It's just letting people who care about your well-being know that you're ok.

I'll give them credit for trying to produce anything special and unique when they could easily release the 'gently caress you, you'll buy it anyways' gpu and it would still sell out instantly.

A majority of the reviews on youtube for any product category are equivalent to Linus' paid previews because that's exactly what they are but they aren't upfront about it.

After seeing a bit of the Linus ASMR video I went to twitch to show my wife some of the weird/real ASMR and the Amouranth was live, lying on a bed licking an double ear shaped microphone... mission accomplished?

Extremely same I have no idea what any of that meant.

Twitch bans sexual content if there's no context, so you can't have a girl in a bikini on her bed because there's no context to it other than sexual. A girl in a pool or hot tub is ok because the context is there that makes it non-sexual.

Someone figured out that you can buy a $200 inflatable hot tub and install it in your basement. They were taking over the IRL category so Twitch made a hot tub category which seems to be hurting the trend since those streams aren't appearing on the front page.

I believe Patrick Stone of GN (so the one doing the PSU testing) actually has an EE degree, it got mentioned during the NZXT riser videos. Note that there are two Patricks who work for GN and usually when Steve refers to Patrick it’s the other one who writes reviews and does camera work.

e: I was incorrect, Stone has a Computer Engineering degree. His LinkedIn was literally the first result when I googled his name.

Computer Engineering is basically a specialized form of Electrical Engineering so it's still his wheelhouse

It looks like he's making a huge bet on this, it's really amazing and I hope it works out for him.

Edit: he even said the long form rigorous analysis won't be on youtube, instead it will be on white papers on their website. Youtube clips will like say 'This is the best power supply for $100' and not go much deeper than that.

Part of the issue with Gamers Nexus is that he is incredibly detailed. The addressable market of nerds who want to see 20 graphs of 30 configurations in a 40 minute video is incredibly small. Linus obviously caters to a more mainstream crowd so I'd expect him to come up with a more mainstream way of distilling all this data.

Will DLDSR work in Overwatch? I started on a 4k screen and then downgraded to a 1440p screen (but 165hz) and I miss the perfect sharpness of 4k... too many jaggies at 1440p.

This is going to come with a heavy performance penalty in any game that isn't CPU bottlenecked. Nvidia is talking like you're saving so much FPS over regular DSR, and I guess you are, but you can still probably expect to see your FPS drop in half in games that aren't CPU limited, right?

It should be a minor performance hit. If you're running at 1440p and use DLDSR it would be like running DLSS at 4k. DLSS at 4k high quality mode renders at 1440p anyways which is how DLSS provides such a massive performance boost.

People always claim that the merch they bought is supposedly "good quality"

Back in the day 90% of merch and schwag was Gildan. Trash shirts that you would wear when you were painting or changing your oil. A few companies used American Apparel. I cherished those shirts.

LTT uses American Apparel so that's good enough for me.
