This is pretty much it.
Depends on the model. Expensive ones are better...
I would look at other brands.
One of the downsides of a receiver (external DAC) is that none of them (in the sane price range) support headphone [surround] virtualization like CMSS-3D or THX TruStudio (which is nice for movies...
If you don't use headphones for games or movies, get a receiver.
And I hope Win9 looks much better than this.
Yeah, that sounds strange. Why would it look worse on PC?
Wow, stunning work!
The paper proves nothing... It's just what a single researcher thinks.
Wait for Maxwell. Kepler is pretty old by now.
4K is no easy task, and next-gen games (thanks to new consoles) are on the way.
Excellent post. I absolutely agree.
2 extra cores are definitely nice, but the chipset (which is refreshed a lot less often than on mainstream platforms) doesn't seem to be ahead of X79 at all.
No chance of that - release is less than a month away. Many CPUs have already been manufactured.
Intel has no ETA for the fix, either.
Remember SATA failure? While this feature isn't used by many software products, many more hardware units are affected: all Haswell, Haswell-E, and first revision of Broadwell...
I think its BIOS is a bit more important.
I am curious why Intel no longer uses solder, though. Is it just cheaper, or can't chips handle soldering temps anymore?
If it's much cheaper, it would be nice to see this epoxy used in more...
It should still be pretty good, though.
E.g., some silver epoxy results are HERE.
Thermal conductivity of solder: 41 W/m*K.
Thermal conductivity of ag-epoxy: 29 W/m*K.
The paper is from...
My math is correct as you've just shown.
All 3200x1800 screens are 15.4" or smaller. How is your experience relevant again?
Either way, the discussion of res/size has been exhausted 3 days...
Bigger is no doubt better but it doesn't look like we will see monitors larger than 32" in size soon...
Eizo has a 36" 4K screen (for $36000), but everyone else seems to be stuck at 31.5".
Simple math for you.
24" 1200p display has 94.34 PPI.
31.5" 4k display has 139.87 PPI.
Hence, using no scaling, objects become 30% smaller in each dimension. Given that 24" @ 1200p is far from...
Don't buy a 24" 4K display for gaming... Use a 32" or larger and everything is easily readable.
There is zero indication that this is a GTX 8xx card other than from author's fantasy...
Why would you want it to run at full speed? There is no performance advantage to this.
That's a pretty sad state of affairs. :\
You're right, something seems off.
Hopefully it's just because Intel is planning to retire 5930K quickly in favor of an 8-core replacement.
The enthusiast platform chips overclock as well (or better thanks to soldered IHS) as the mainstream ones.
This one lists 3.5Ghz:
Likely irrelevant if you look at past history of SB vs SB-E and IB vs IB-E.
Now, if there were actually noticeable real-world gains from this...
