#1193712 Star Citizen / Squadrdon 42 - a real PC game

Truly, you need to give one of the free-fly weekends a shot. Given it's a *big* download though, you may want to hold off for 3.0 to drop.


Haha... I'm not sure my system could even run it mate. Besides which, I don't want to try incase I get addicted to it.

Intel are throwing some serious shade at AMD:







Bit salty are we Intel? Glued together dies like Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad? Like AMD used to throw shade at you about hmm..?


But seriously? No ecosystem support? You have companies there like: IBM, Microsoft, MSI, Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock (twice), VMWare, Oracle, Cray... and many more whom AMD have partnerships and EcoSystem integration with. Intel threw in a couple more OEM's twice to make it look good... but unfortunately they've just made themselves look really stupid lol... and a little scared.


EDIT: Apparently "glued' is a an accepted industry term. Whether it applies in this case though is still unknown to me.. if only I could be bothered doing hours of reading/learning.

If Cinebench is your thing... Threadripper 1950X 16 core smashes the Core i9 10 core and it's the same price.

It scares me too. And it also scares me that the two are put on the same level. The media has a lot to to answer for.. for a lot of things. But then again, the Media is corrupt and agenda driven. In my tin foil hat opinion. Which is why helps to do your own research into things and not take what they say at face value... but yes... people these days are looking to be told that their crazy ideas and opinions are valid, that they are included, and that they're welcome to watch a show long enough to get those advertising dollars. But what does that do? Well... that allows other crazies to stand up in the state forum and represent them and try to push, pull, sway, hinder, create legislation that has progressed little or has even gone backwards. The United States is a prime example.
Or am I just a whacko with that opinion?
Everyone is allowed to have an opinion... but not everyone's opinion has to be heard.

I don't blame the media as much as people in general. I think we get the media and politicians we deserve to an extent.

I think it's up to everyone to challenge not just the opinion of others, but our own opinions as well. Take them out and give them an airing, see if they still stand up :)

I posted the link in the OP previously, it's great to see people have a read of it this time. And challenge it.

Every day we hear more and more about interference in the political process, the generation of fake news and opinion by hackers. I think it's going to be harder to tell real from fake before it gets better.


1) I think that's true.. they pander to the demand


2) I agree


3) Yes, discussion on this subject is good


4) We do. The blame is being pointed to Russia, they influenced the US election, they tried to do the same with the French, and German elections, and the trend is likely to continue to other member states of the EU. There's something very dark happening in the world today. The new rise of nationalism in western democracy. Neo Nazi groups in Europe, and just deplorables in general globally becoming emboldened. Fake news and misinformation agenda drives, even against life and death matters like Global Warming. Refugee Crises, economic concerns... endless list of woe, etc.
