    I just had a weird idea for a fan



    Imagine the little sled thingies have magnets in them and the track in the body has wire through it

    Ring motors already exists, except it's a full circle making contacts rather than four small points.

    I just tried to render a really really simple object in Inventor and for the hell of it I stuck Anti Aliasing on max (there's only 5 settings)
    It renders 4 tiny sections of the image, which are all just parts of the background with nothing on it
    The entire program then proceeds to crash and burn, pushing my CPU usage almost to 100%

    Render Illiterate Software Who Think They Can Render

    Just watched one of those FBI "you're a hacker, pay a fine" pop ups appear in fullscreen on a school computer. It diguised itself as rundll32.exe and launched itself from a website, and then locked up the computer. Gotta love our security...

    In my old school we had a ticket system that wasn't in the intranet. This means whenever we got bored at home we submitted some fake tickets.
    Also they had the domain admin PW stored in a config file in c:\temp. Plaintext.
    And one teacher had such an extremely bad breath that you could smell it from outside the classroom if he was late to class or not.

    Oh good ol' school times, I miss them.

    So, Imo it seems the 680 is better. Not performance wise, it mostly matches the 7970 in games, but for the features. TXAA is fucking awesome, and the new PhysX is nice. Not to mention the fucking tiny reference design and quiet reference cooler, oh and green is a better colour.

    A lot of those reviews were written before official launch and use sources that aren't exactly respectable, a lot are very sensationalist. I'd mostly trust the reviews in the coming few hours.

    You're expecting cheaper than the previous gen on a new fab process? It should be costing more, a fuck load more.

    I'm personally looking at a 670 or 680, or the AMD equivalents which should be the 7870 and 7970. I might go with Nvidia though since performance wise they're mostly the same while Nvidia has all the fancies like PhysX, TXAA or this new adaptive vSync

    Hopefully with the release of the GTX 680, the 580 will drop down in price. :( Just realised the motherboard I just bought doesn't have a 3.0 16x PCI slot, so getting a 680 is out of the question.

    It is? Well sweet. Though, for the price that it's at, I don't think I'll be able to pick it up just yet. Still hoping for the price drop of the 580!

    And yes wingless, you covered it well. Thanks for all the videos!

    This.
    He's also a bit of an ass and just a plain ass generic reviewer. I'm sure there's other reasons. But my main reason is there's better reviewers. Look at TTL. He has an amazing ability to connect with the viewer and give a spot on, perfect review of everything he reviews. He doesn't talk to the camera like it's a camera, and doesn't talk down to said camera. He's an all around awesome and funny guy and gets probably the most accurate reviews out there.

    Yeah I know but that's mostly recently, I was judging over the past few years.

    Elric actually has been through a lot, not saying Tom hasn't, but through all of it he kept a smile and being humorous.
