Microsoft's best operating system, Windows 7 SP1. Security updates available until 2020. Will you stop using it after support ends or hack it with your own patches?

>it's clear the designers at MS just gave up after 7. either that or they were fired and replaced with complete idiots.

americans quit their company every 2 years on average
>but will companies stop making software for it?
Partially they will drop out the support, as they did it with WinXP.
But, Windows 7 still has more market share than Win8/8.1, so, I doubt they will be doing it soon...
Seriously that exists wew processors coming out on the market which are Win X only????? Holy shit!

I thought windows 98 was the ultimate no?

Oh its xp? Win7 you say?

How can I become a successful woman in tech? What do I have to do?
22 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Not care about autistic cooworkers and actually liking tech stuff, aka, not just entering to "prove" something.
Get involved in some public and/or FOSS software so you can show technical skill and cooperation with a team of people. Employers like that, and it also gives you something interesting to bring up during an interview.
fuck off we're full
If you want a good job without working for it: Be a "woman in tech"

If you want to do a good job, and for people to like you: Work hard
Easy. Apply for the job, get hired. Look at those numbers and then compare it to the fact that 8% of computer-related major graduates are female.

unironically garbage collect yourself
Go binaries are statically linked and include a lot of debug symbols by default
Cool, I can also statically link libraries in C and I don't end up with a 2mb exe when I try to print a hello world
When I compile your hello world with Go, I get a 1.2MB executable on linux. When I statically build a C hello world, the binary is 700KB. That's pretty comparable, and the go binary has a lot of extra shit in it that could be stripped out if need be.

It just depends on how many libs you link. Go's compiler has a switch to not delete the temporary build directory. Try it and you'll see the many per default linked-in libs.

gnuplot is a lot easier to use.

Just use matplotlib. I think its quite easy, gets naughty when you want to do more complex stuff though (animated graphs etc.).

What do we know about AMDs upcoming "Vega12" GPUs?

I'm actually curious. I haven't read anything about AMD releasing new GPUs any time soon. But I did catch this:

AMD just added support for some new line of Vega GPUs named VEGA12. This isn't "vega 12" like "vega 64", RX 4xx cards were POLARIS10 and RX 5xx POLARIS12. So we're talking some kind of new line of Vega cards.

Any additional details on these anywhere?

it stands for Motherboard
The current rasterization methods are still a legacy nobody is willing to abandon.

The next step will be MCM gpgpu with massive compute performance, after that the new standards will start appearing ad getting implemended into gpgpu architecture.

A raytracing ASIC wont take off widely due to compatibility limitations
>buy an ASIC that can run nothing but tgese two games on this specific version of Unreal
>the new unreal version comes and the future games adopt it
There's already a game in early access utilizing real time volumetric ray tracing. Funnily enough it's not utilizing a rasterization hybrid, or either of the new apis on pc. It's called claybook, it runs all the ray tracing and fluid physics on the gpu, they've even gotten it running on the xbone so far. Nothing super fancy, but pretty impressive.
Ray tracing is a primitive technology and can be ran on any GPGPU that supports OpenCL.

The real time tracing is basically the same old shit except it uses the lowest possible quality and then some smart machine guesswork to fill in the gaps and noise filtering to smooth out the shitty grainy image.

There's no space magic in it.
>since we are on GPu topic, what with ray tracing boom out of nowhere?
It's just a matter of time until GPUs are fast enough, high end GPUs can probably real time raytrace at a few FPS now so they are making hybrid renders with only small portions traced. Another few GPU generations and you will probably see completely ray traced games. Old hardware and consoles will hold back adoption though. Things could also change rapidly if large companies hurl money at real time raytracing though.

Palm Pixi - Could even replace the battery in 10 seconds.

Should a single 980 be able to drive 3 1440p? One at 144hz the rest at 60, obviously the 144hz screen would be used for gaming.

Or would I need to get another 980 to even just run 3 smoothly.
Running 2D applications on 3x1440p will be fine on a 980. As long as your gpu supports the monitors and resolutions, desktop usage is going to be fine. There's no such thing as a laggy desktop due to GPU performance.
Thanks, it was kinda overkill for a 980, but they were 300 dollars(500 off retail price) and i'm planning to buy another graphics card but they're so expensive now i need to save more

Idk it was honestly too good of a deal to pass up.
