@Corky42
I believe intel's recent decisions are conscious choices, but there are a lot of factors contributing to that; more than what that article quote pointed out.

The main factor is...

Intel could make a CPU that is twice as fast and twice as power efficient as SB and aside from some laptop/tablet users, the average person still wouldn't buy it. Everyday software doesn't need...

Ah cool, thanks for the explanation. But yeah, I didn't think charge rate was correlated to capacity. What I was getting at is the increased charge rate means (in a case like rengerative braking)...

I'm interested to know why exactly some batteries charge quicker than others. Think of it in this perspective - suppose that you have this aluminum-based battery and a Li-ion battery with the same...

That to me is an interesting question. Though hypothetical, there are answers to it. Many people invest in companies because they're hoping to get more out of it than they put in. That's fine -...

In my opinion, adding more RAM to a single GPU is hardly going to make games perform better on 2K resolutions or higher. It wouldn't surprise me if many people on such screens don't use up all 4GB,...

Knowing EVGA, I don't think they'd let a problem like that slide. They probably have direct access to modify the BIOS, so I'm sure that's a non-issue. Besides, the limits you speak of are probably...

8-pin power plugs don't actually supply any additional power. The spare 2 pins are just grounds, and in many 6+2 connectors, the +2 are directly connected to the other ground wires. The purpose of...

I guess it is possible - if your normal maximum read speed is 250MB/s but you have a 1.3GB file compressed into less than 250MB, then your CPU and RAM is handling most of the load.

I agree, but isn't Windows Server a lot like that? I never directly used a Windows Server setup on a PC so I don't really know.

I remember that used to be a problem but I'm not really sure that applies anymore. If MS intends to compress the entire drive, I can't imagine it's still an issue.

I find it funny how the people who think 100GB is ok seem to be legitimately offended and angry that people disagree. Seriously - it's an opinion. Though saying "the developers are lazy" may be...

Right but I'm sure the backers weren't expecting the game to be that huge. 100GB is NOT the lowest it can be - that's exactly the problem. I understand high-res textures take up significantly more...

This is pretty exciting. The Descent series was one of my favorites. But, this is a pretty ambitious game to re-create. I'll have to look into it more before I consider pitching in.
