>Literally the best phone out right now

>b-b-b-but the fingerprint sensor...is in...a spot that feels weird kinda....

Do you guys ever get tired of literally searching for the smallest thing to complain about? You actively try to find the smallest flaw of anything that is popular and good just so you feel like you're special and unique. It's disgusting really. This is how I behaved when I was a teenage. You're all adults now.

I will never understand why people treat Go's simplicity like it's a bad thing, as if being easy to learn, read, and write/use is somehow a bad trait. People claim this as an advantage when talking about learning C but Go has the additional advantage of being easy to write as well as learn/read.
>don't use this, it's too easy!
>why would you need to be productive, are you some kind of codemonkey? It's better to spend decades on a project and dedicate your time to audits instead of writing multiple things
>don't you know automatic memory management is bad, ignore everyone complaining about C for user created security flaws
>why not use rust, it's just as safe but twice as complex
Nobody ever talks about how nice the standard tools are too, the documentation system alone is worth it for me, even if developers don't write their own commentary the ability to see callee's, type information, etc. are fantastic when working with third party projects, standard build system, standard formatter, standard compiler, standard test suite. It has everything you need and it works exactly the same on every platform and every project. No dicking around with John Doe's special snowflake build system that only works on hp-ux which you can read all about using this custom documentation generation system.

Go has alleviated so many frustration points for me that it's unreal.

I just realized, Vega is a turning point for AMD GPU division, they've done something not even ATi has done.

Vega is the first AMD arch since forever where AMD had bigger individual shaders than Nvidia.

Lets take a look at die sizes.

Vega 10 - 530mm2 - Shading Units: 4096
GP102 - 471 mm2 - Shading Units: 3840

Simple math says that Vega is 12.5% bigger than GP102, but only has 6.69% more shaders.

Even going back to Nvidia's G80, I don't remember this ever happening, Nvidia has always had bigger shader arrays than ATi/AMD.
Last Gen GM200, which is Titan Maxwell, only had 3072 at the same die size as FuryX, In fact the whole situation with Fury X and Vega having the same amount of shaders is completely unreal considering Vega has twice the transistor count as Fury X/Fiji

Now the question remains how buffed up are the individual shaders in Vega compared to Fiji? They almost have twice the transistors dedicated to them.

People also forget to mention how much power the VRM and VRAM use, a good 20-30W for the high end GPUs alone goes to VRM, and another 50-60W for high clocked GDDR5

The GPU dies themselves are insanely efficient, this is why APUs are fucking awesome when they have a shitload of shaders in them.

Remember seeing a chart recently what showed that ATI/AMD have historically a lower power consumption than Nvidia. That chart even had a extra 1000 mark just for one Nvidia card.

Because you're going to forget to adjust your fans correctly.

Since you now have this big passive heat exchange area, you'll want to use that for exhaust and pull in fresh air from both the front and back of the case. As it stands now, your fans are probably configured for exhaust on at least one of those sides.
