Re: Intel has BIG plans.

... You are so drunk on Western propaganda, it is sad to read what you just wrote. China is Taiwan's biggest export market, people go to work there, etc. People in West are fed propaganda daily and USA wants you to be scared of CCP because united China and Taiwan would create a country that is more …

Re: How over powered are modern PCs?

If nobody would buy these shit coins, the chinese wouldn't mine them and there wouldn't be a shortage. You are out of date. Chinese government messed them up, so now most minning is happening in USA. https://www.forbes.com/sites/roberthart/2021/10/13/us-claims-top-spot-for-bitcoin-mining-as-miners- …

Re: How over powered are modern PCs?

Same thing with resolutions. The difference between 4k and 2k is not worth the 4x extra computing power required. You need to take into account also the increase in screen size. Monitors used to be 15" and less, but now 24" is minimum and people want 27" and more. TVs are also much larger than they …

I ended up retiring my old Core2 Quad when simply opening Twitter used to freeze the system for ten seconds. A site designed around the almost utilitarian concept of displaying simple 140 character messages (SMS!) should be fairly lightweight. I have an old computer from 2005 (which I don't use …

Re: When horses are faster than the internet

in Milliways
I understand the point. But what make me think about it is getting used to not actually preparing our own food, loosing the ability and more important the logic of the (free) time factor needed for something that might be better to be choosen, prepared at home instead of being prepared, boxed, …

Re: When horses are faster than the internet

Interesting it's like the old logic of going somewhere walking instead with a car searching for a parking place or waiting a bus. Nowdays some people would choose the digital road for everything even for the most basic stuff like when I hear about people ordering their food on some phone app …

Re: ATI TruForm

Alone In The Dark (2008)

I am using the latest version of dgVoodoo. For some reason the game starts in a window and does not accept input. If I Alt+Enter to fullscreen and back it accepts input when in window, but not if I go back to fullscreen again. I can move the mouse but it does not accept mouse, keyboard or controller …

Re: What do you think about Steam Deck handheld PC ?

in Milliways
(People are moaning that it won't have capacity to install the 100GB AAA games like RDR2 and CP but it doesn't have a hope at running those games well to begin with. I would love to be proven wrong...) You can already play those games on GPD Win 3 and Aya Neo which are much smaller devices: …

What do you think about Steam Deck handheld PC ?

in Milliways
Recently Valve officially announced Steam Deck; a handheld PC running SteamOS, similar to GPD Win 3, Aya Neo and One Xplayer that already had successful crowdfunding earlier this year and that run on Windows. https://store.steampowered.com/steamdeck

Re: graphics that over promise and under deliver

in Milliways
I would say that modern games have too much "noise" in them. Before 2000 there were so many hardware limitations and levels consisted of only what was necessary. They built the gameplay and atmosphere with the bare minimum. Those games are actually much more comfortable to play, because when you …

Re: 8k

I was thinking of buying a 1440p monitor, but since GPU prices are ridiculous now, I can't buy a GPU to run it.
