Which language is set to replace C++?
38 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
javascript, probably.
Sooner or later everything will be replaced by javascript, sitting on 6000 layers of abstraction.
but why would they?
you got the get() method for a reason.
It's very common to pass non-owning pointers to other functions.
We laugh but it's true.

We're all going to be replaced by Karlie Kloss Koders, plugging in half-assed pajeet JS libraries and nodding our heads in satisfaction because "it just works! lets treat ourselves to Avocado toast!".

I'm already seeing chromium on linuxfb's on embedded devices running some electron app.

How did AMD succeed with Ryzen/Threadripper while monumentally fucking up Vega?
294 replies and 28 images omitted. Click here to view.
Well they did target 1080 level performance as was previously stated.
They never officially stated they would reach 1080Ti level performance as some here were speculating.
Still a massive disappointment that AMD cannot compete with NVIDIA's top dog after all this time.
Ideally they should be leapfrogging one another performance wise not play catch up with their competition for a sightly lower price a long while after.

Crypto currency mining only complicates matters considering it might not be sustainable but they do benefit from it in the short term until the demand for mining plummets and an influx of dirt cheap cards floods the market.

>They never officially stated they would reach 1080Ti level performance as some here were speculating.

True but there is nothing - that is publically available - that inherently limits GCN to reach such performance. The most obvious point is AMD's resistance at increasing ROPS and simply bolting on more compute units (and related solutions) to attain throughput. Now naturally 128 ROPS with the same ratio of compute units and whatnot that hawaii has would lead to a massive die which is likely why AMD don't do it but on the geomrty front they are lagging. If you want to crunch compute tasks GCN is an absolute beast and vega is no exception - it fights Nvidia cards thats are considerably more expensive and have notably larger dies.

My own theory is that AMD banked on either 1) GPGPU or 2) igpus basically invalidating discrete cards outside of niche accelerators (i'm looking at you xeon phi and tesla) when the Vega design was initially instiagted. That and a combination of zen basically sucking up all the major talent and resources in the company leads me to suspect that Vega is - in practical terms - merely a hot-clocked GCN chip rather than being the GCN successor everyone hoped it would be. While it is cliche Navi is looking to be that radical shift but I severely doubt it can meet the expectation as (effectively) MCM gpus are the holy grail and much like HMS Dreadnaught will instantly invalidate everything before it.
Nvidia also seems to be working on their own interposer as well, wonder if Navi will beat them to the punch.
I hope AMD does manage to compete with Nvidia otherwise we will end up in a similar situation to the stagnating CPU market which only managed to pull its shit together recently.
Actually, Vega was specifically designed to overcome the limitations of GCN. Most of the new uarch features in Vega like primitive shaders, primitive discard and draw stream binning rasterization are all aimed at addressing GCN's previous limitations.

Unfortunately, the driver team did not succeed in getting primitive shaders implemented by launch for RX Vega, so at present Vega is still front end bottlenecked in gaming by the 4 triangles/clock throughput limitations Fiji struggled with. This is why Vega 56 performs exactly the same as Vega 64 at the same clock speeds right now. Until primitive shaders get implemented in RX drivers there is no way to know what Vega is actually capable of in games.
I'd be cool with that.

none of these can
proprietary graphics drivers + dual monitors + X + vidya = tons of wonky behavior

Seriously I couldn't get most games to work like this and as far as I could tell it was literally unfixable without switching to slow Nouveau drivers or losing a monitor.
Someone brings up some actual points against using Linux
>well in my opin-
I'll give you privacy, but that's just a consequence of the license, not the OS;
>available software;
Bitch, i know my software works on Windows, and don't have to worry about the repo being constrained by the minor version of the OS, since most of that shit gets recompiled every time a new version comes along.
>performance optimizations
That's ironic, since i look at phoronix test suites all the time, and windows always has a 5-10-15-30% lead, depending on the program(unless it's something dependant on NTFS, or openarena)
Not particularly remarkable.
Besides, im here to use my PC, not hold hands with neckbeards to fix basic functionality.

Colourisation is the worst modern trend on the internet at the moment. Ask yourself are you more likely to think of a coloured image or a black and white image? Colourisation ruins the natural integrity of the original image and steals the purity of the original image.

It's been around since the 19th century and was a huge industry until the early 50s.

Take your meds.
Colourising a photo does not destroy the original. It's still there for you to look at whenever you feel like it.

The problem with black-and white photos is you can't tell if someone's wearing a bright red shirt or a grey shit. It gives a false impression of what fashion, architecture, and a lot of other things looked like back in the day. For example really brightly colored dresses were popular in the 40s; but you'd never know that from photos and movies.

How come we still have these terms?

I feel like they haven't been relevant for almost 10 years.
are you proposing that we remove words from existence?
Lots of analogue media is still put into those formats
Once the last CRT, VHS tape and A/V cable dies, then you can stop using those terms

Is it worth it to overclock my 3570k and buy a new cooler or should I invest in a new cpu?
im pretty sure a new motherboard and cpu costs way more than a cooler. not to mention having to buy overpriced ddr4 ram.
it depends on what you want to use it for

gaming on 1080p resolution with a gtx 1060 6gb sc
Buy a better cooler. Even stock I don' t think you have a cpu bottleneck.
Buy a cooler, you can usually get conversion adapters so you can keep it for your next build

That's why there is a desktop thread (screenfetch) every fucking day. Also literally hundreds of themes on gnome look and devian art and reddit with it's unixporn.
screenfetch for the stuff on the terminal, going to the gnome extension page on your browser to get the right extensions(dock, etc.), and maybe some tinkering of Xresources or another conf file for the theme on the terminal.

I'm working on a swap meet style site to preserve old tech & keep stuff out of landfills

Focus would be on having a place where you could find a person to donate to instead of landfilling, or swap with someone else, or sell for money (but just purely selling wouldn't be the encouraged focus)
Something like that but with also location options and maybe a way to show your 'collection' of old tech and which items are up for donation / swapping / sale.
It could end up with a lot of good information and guide, a community of people to help preserve stuff, possibly even get some custom firmware hacks for things to keep them going into the future.
Any /g/entlemen able to dev stuff like this? I'd rather pay one of us than a pajeet from hotscripts
i-i made a dumb little imageboard but it's just for some ideas and stuff until i get the actual site going
no intentions of stealing discussion from /g/ or the old tech generals, just making a place to list & swap old tech with the whole interwebs

would you guys check out the eswap script and see what sort of options i might have to develop something like it from scratch?
Programming aint my deal but if the site is up and running im willing to mod or dedicate one of my systems as a serveri dont need to get paid ill do it out of charity because it sounds like a great idea maybe create a discord to discuss courses of action

The biggest market for that would be older people who just want to get rid of old systems but don't want the trouble of selling it on craigslist. A lot would be willing to donate but plenty would refuse to not accept some form of payment for their legacy system for some reason
I would say offer an appraisal service somehow that would tell people how much their system is worth and offer them the money for it right then and there
well, not just systems but any old or outdated tech, old logitech speakers, mice missing a wireless receiver, etc. old ram, old motherboards, stuff like that.

i like the feeling i get when something goes to someone who wants to try to do something with it, rather then take it straight to the trash. even if it ends up there eventually, at least we tried.

cool! i don't know about discord, it's easy to set up, but also the most serious and autistic /g/entlemen will refuse to use it, and those are the ones who probably have back rooms filled with old tech that they'd be willing to swap and give away

i believe my best option will be to host an IRC
Go after Staples, they're the only store where people drop off shit like that without paying to recycle. If you can get people that go to drop that sort of stuff off there you could clean up
What do they do with it? Sell it for scrap or refurb it if its recent enough?
