New benchmarks coming in show the RX 480 can't even beat a GTX 970:



See pic, the Fire Strike score is significantly lower than a 970.

This thing is just plain garbage, you can even buy some 970s for $200 right now.
242 replies and 30 images omitted. Click here to view.
Your missing the point buddy the 480 is made for 1080p gaming for $200 its a steal, 1070/1080 is just overkill for 90% of people
390X stock - 12547 gfx score
970 1418MHz - 12015 gfx score

But this is weird, the 970 scores are all over the fucking place, from 12k to 14k gfx score with a 100MHz clock difference

Yeah, no way I'm taking this benchmark at face value.
Your probably one of those fags that would choose a 2500k vs anything modern

Is there an endgame for technology? like a 6inch 48 hour battery, 4k resolution, bezelless touch screen, with no bloatware, ability to customize, no branding, gorilla glass, 16gb ram, 6ghz processor smart phone is how long away? 5 years?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Were definitely getting there. Maybe not 5 years but in the next decade OP's specs will be a reality.
The endgame is continued planned obsolescence.
Future generations will look pitifully at our tech atm. Some of them will post pictures of Dell XPS laptops and call them "comfy". Kids will look at the laptops and wonder how people back then could do without having AI that will make most of the work we do on computers today redundant. Maybe someone will remember this very thread and laugh at the thought that we once thought that the endgame in tech is a fucking 4k screen and a large battery. If you knew what's to come, you would laugh as well.

I wouldn't hope for "no bloatware" though.

I really wouldn't.

T430 is best performer if the 6 row isn't a problem. Ivy bridge is sweet, and HD4000 is a really good iGPU if you wanna use that.
Bump please
They're the same, just one laptop is 14 inches.
Anyone ever had the issue of keyboard's fucking up and spewing out random strings on keypresses? My little sister's T410 had that problem and I'm just about to replace the keyboard. (a USB keyboard would work fine)
I don't know about the keypress issue but if you were to just take out the keyboard and replace it, that wouldn't be too difficult.

Hmm. When I checked it out I remember it could barely talk to native ABI libraries due to the compiler and its runtime. Must've been quite some time ago, I don't remember the exact version.

I should give it another go. What do I need to become productive in Windows 8 right now? Since you're a Go fan, I have some questions.

The VCS-based imports were always confusing for me because its decentralized. What URL am I supposed to put in there anyway? My code is hosted in multiple places, I often have a public github repo and a private bitbucket one. What if the dev puts up mirrors? It feels like a completely irrelevant implementation detail was sucked into the language, making me make useless decisions. I would have appreciated a more symbolic approach that lets me import libgit2 rather than github.com/libgit2/libgit2. Why was it done this way

How do Go libraries work? Back then I couldn't figure out why. Everything seemed to end up as a binary blob running on top of Go's runtime. I love making tons and tons of libraries so I need to understand how it works. How does Go link its stuff together?

Do goroutines support actual concurrency or are they just coroutines? I remember asking myself that back then. I read about the runtime's allocation of code to threads or something of the sort, but never reached a conclusion.

They have a "rune" type. How good is the Unicode support anyway? "Strings are byte arrays" good? "We know the difference between UTF-8 and codepoints" good? "Our functions take locale into account" good? ICU good?

If I daemonize a Go process, can I expect it not to shit itself randomly and unfixably as is the case with unreliable bullshit such as Node.js

>What do I need to become productive in Windows 8 right now?
Most editors have some kind of Go plugin. https://github.com/golang/go/wiki/IDEsAndTextEditorPlugins You will likely want automatic formating on save and a linter.
Or, if you want a dedicated IDE, try https://github.com/visualfc/liteide

>What URL am I supposed to put in there anyway?
The URL of the website and repository. `github.com/libgit2/git2go` as an example.
>What if the dev puts up mirrors?
>Why was it done this way
To prevent naming conflicts. Any site that implements the meta info for go get to parse can be used directly with go get. This makes all repository URLs absolute and allows to easily refactor directory structure.

>How does Go link its stuff together?
Compiling a library produces an intermediary binary, which is stored in $GOPATH/pgk. This binary includes all of it's dependencies in it. When you link against this library, the compiler extracts the parts, which the dependant needs, and includes them in the dependant's binary. But my knowledge on the actual workings of the compiler is really basic.

Why not use Google and problem solved. No need to be hipstery.
I use startpage. It does everything I need it to do, which means I type in what I'm looking for and get relevant results.

Ddg results dropped in quality significantly in the past month or so. I find myself forced to fallback to ixquick or plain google more and more.

I have the HyperX Cloud headset and i could definitely recommend it. This shit is super comfy (note that i have glasses and never got any pain in those), the sound is good but not too good (as expected from GAYMING headset). Overall experience is good.

Compared to the T20i I meant, but aren't there several versions of the SE215, with one of them being somewhat flatter than the rest?

Anyway, one of the reasons why I'm also keen on the SE215 was for the detachable cable, now if there was an affordable metal constructed, detachable earphone then I would be totally over it...

Those Etys look (and I assume) sound good too, but seem to fragile for me.

Do you mean the special edition?

http://goldenears.net/board/5400159 | Special Edition

I think you previously mentioned that you lived in SA. If only you lived in SYD. To go to Minidisc and try audition the SE215 yourself.

SE215's have a misleading plastic build quality. I recall people accidentally stepping on their Shures and it breaking.

what's an "okay" 1080p card?

>people buy AMD GPUs for budget builds usually because they're supposed to be better value
>reviewers test the cards with the most powerful cpu available to regular consumers like the 5960x or 6700k
>people buy the budget AMD card with a budget cpu
>people suffer horribly from AMD driver overhead

What's the point of AMD? They're no good in the budget end because of the driver overhead, and they're no good in the enthusiast tier because Nvidia flagships usually perform better.

When will they fix their drivers? Or will they just force dx12 down our throats instead?

If they fix their drivers, both on windows and Linux, they will be a viable option for many people who understand the issue and go with nvidia because of it.

wasn't the beta using 4.5 on amd? then a hot fix made it work on amd?
If I had an AMD gpu I wouldn't use the dx11 version just to be 'fair' to the nvidia gpus......
no, they hot fixed 4.5 to 4.3 on AMD.

AMD just doesn't support 4.5 properly.
My 980m could do high/ultra settings hitting 75 and it's about 4 times more powerful. So I'm calling bull.

i should note that my windows 7 install takes 20gb, after i debloated it, my 8.1 install takes 14gb, but my windows 10 takes only 11gb. who would have thought?
