You don't need to hire the world's best programmer to code your fart soundboard app.
For every job there's millions of people who could adequately fulfill the requirements or learn everything they need in a few weeks.

Affirmative action literally only exists because of whites discriminating in favor of whites and against PoC in the past. You're just creating more justification for affirmative action polices. Trying to fight affirmative action using white supremacy is brain-damaged; if you oppose such policies, do so by advocating hiring people regardless of demographics, judging them only on their merit.

Wait, so did Nvidia next fix the issue that Keplar, Pascal, and other archs have when VRAM starved?
AMD GPUs don't have nearly this problem. A 3GB 7970 runs far better in a game that uses 4GB of VRAM than the 3.5GB 970 does despite being a little more than half as powerful.

I thought after the lawsuit over the 3.5GB that they updated their memory controller to behave more like GCN did when VRAM starved.
Did they not?
What's the point in getting an Nvidia card if you are forced to upgrade when you want to play a game that uses more VRAM, whereas AMD cards keep working fine?

I bought back into the AMD meme. Had two R9 290x 8GB cards in Crossfire. The setup couldn't stop tripping over it's own dick long enough to even touch 4k. Had to run in 2k windowed to get anything done. Had to run a single card with the other disabled. Switched both in their slots with the same result.
Bought a 1080 and boom. 4k all day long. If not maxed then high in most cases. I commonly play Battlefield 1, GTA V, Beam NG, Doom (new), Witcher 3.

Go ahead and throw some shade.

You should be fully aware by now that single core performance is the only thing that Ryzen's lacking, that's what is hurting their performance on videogames compared to the i7 7700k. In any case, Ryzen CPUs single core performance is on pair with Intel's 4th Gen. CPUs which isn't bad at all for AMD compared to their past CPUs. Might as well mention that in games that correctly support Multithreading, the Ryzen 5 CPUs seems to be on the same level as the i5 7600k while using 20-30% less of their power, clearly there's room for improvement before moving onto Ryzen+.

hey /g/
So I recently have really gotten into editing videos and I actually wanna start going outside to film videos/footage for videos and edit them at home
I will be doing stuff like timelapses and go out to record stuff and I actually have a cam for the timelapses already, however while the cam is taking photos for the timelapse, I need another camera to shoot the actual video and here's where my question for you is at..
what camera should I buy for this?
1080p and 60-80fps will be just fine
thank you guys in advance

>>60626802
I am an enterprise level system admin. Where I work, we have KVM over IP switches. Google it. KVM over IP is a KVM switch that uses Cat5 cables as kvm cables. The KVM signals, that's keyboard, video and mouse, use cat5 cables that connects to dongles at the end that convert the cat5 connection to VGA and 2 PS/2 connections. However, I'm pretty sure that there are also dongles with VGA and USB end connectors.

So, if cat5 is good enough for KVM, it will also do USB. Maybe not USB 3.0, but almost definitely USB 2.0.

>>60627791
You would need some signal repeaters along the cat5 cable, depending on how long it is. But yes, it will work.
