  1. There is only one supplier churning them out at one fabrication plant. Also demand far outstrips supply with 7nm, All AMD stuff is 7nm for example and they are having trouble fulfilling orders. All current AMD cards have been pretty much a paper launch with stupidly low supply (even worse than Nvidia who use samsungs 8nm). Meanwhile everyone else is scrambling to jump to 5nm and 3nm. Oh and corona virus sent demand for chips through the roof and it's taking ages for TSMC and others to ramp up for the demand. So basically you had the perfect storm. A new process which early on had p
  2. In some ways yes and in some ways no. I mean 16nm is still used somewhat but it's TSMC who do it and it will be coming to end of life use. A 12nm process would also be done by TSMC and would be a nice earner for them given the fact that they cannot pump out 7nm chips with any speed at the moment. Nvidia probably have a good deal with them.
  3. Current rumour is that's another die shrink of the Mariko chip found in the switch lite/Revised switch. if that is true then clock could go higher with lower power draw and would also mean that the chip could well have been tinkered with to include tensor cores and still hit it's power budget. Current mariko is 16nm which was a relatively small die shrink from the original 20nm (in fact it was more of a tidy up from the leaky 20nm design). A drop to 12nm (very likely) or even 8nm (less so) would be very nice.
  4. Yeah I think it can if not now then in the future as its very flexible. Also Turing introduced mash shading and if the switch will use DLSS (for which you need tensor cores) then mesh shading might be doable as well. As for what to expect out of a Switch Pro well given what it's rumoured to include the I think we could see something of a stop gap machine until the world silicon situation is resolved. There is quite a bit of headroom for clocking the switches SoC much higher than is used. A remodel of the cooling system would solve the extra heat issue. I'm pretty positive it will i
  5. EVE online is still going strong and I'm still playing it after 15 years.
  6. Aqua tunnel. And it was the fucking balls. Great track.
  7. Money, Money, Money. I've been considering writing an update for a while about a number of things that have happened but probably the most pertinant one, or rather one that could have wide reaching repercusions in the future, is what has occured over the past week or so. While The Imperium, Legacy and Panfam happily shot the shit out of each other every day they also so something else. The leadership of all three decided (back when everyone wasn't shooting each other) to set up an co-operative business venture. All three created an entity called TTP whose purpose was
  8. Also as a bit of a war update here is a simplified sov map of Eve. Imperium is Gold and the big blue donut is blue. Noone really cares too much about those up north.
  9. As for local chat well we tend to block Brave and Test and I think I also blocked Horde. Init tends to be pretty strict when it comes to talking in local. The only one who really indulges i shit talk is Brisc Rubal but then again he gets a lot of shit back as well thanks to him presenting the meta show. He's actually a nice chap though and a bit of a laugh.
  10. Goons are nothing like they used to be. They changed a lot since about 2015. Init meanwhile is a great bunch of people. No drama. Discord is fun. Fc's are all really good people. Dark Shines even apologises when he loses his cool in fleets. Pando is just super chilled. Also TGRADS is just as awesome as it always has been because I am in them
  11. Oh you really should be with the good guys. Also if that was from the fight earlier then fucking hell the tidi was mental. Totally screwed up my warp in. Ended up dying before I could get to the gate. Still Braves staging ihub died.
  12. Yeah what good stuff there is in skyward sword is really good stuff. The bad however is really bad. Lots of repetition for example.
  13. Thanks to the gigaleak they have access to the original names for the samples used. That's how they figured out the original sound of the tracks.
  14. The videos above really show you how much nintendo improved with their sound drivers and compression.
