In Topic: Are Data Limits Hurting Anything, Such As Online Gaming?

Yesterday, 09:04 PM

Yes. I have a 10GB limit on my Verizon cellphone and so I almost never uses it for fear of using it all up and not having it when I need it or worse going over and having to pay though the teeth. What's the point of having a 100Mbps wireless connection if at that speed you run out of data in a matter of minutes? It's like having a car that can go 270MPH but runs out of gas after 100ft. That's not cool.

Which convention yields an answer different than 9?

Wow, this is reminding me of the dress issue. But this is math! It is very concise. How is it left to interpretation? The equation was shown as a photo using a division sign instead of forward slash, but still. 


I don't see how there is division over it. 


P.S. I won't disclose my answer until I see where everyone is, and at least reasoning behind it. 


By the way, now 6 is in the bag. haha. 


That dress was only ever blue and black in reality. No such reality exists for this equation.

6 / 2 * ( 1 + 2 )


You modified his equation. It was originally 6/2(1+2) which makes a difference in this case. No longer speaking directly to Nyphren... The fact is that this can be evaluated using more than one convention and those two convention yield different results. You might think one of these conventions is the "right" convention, but that is just your opinion. Unless you can get everyone in the world to agree then an equation like this will always be ambiguous unless you specifically state which convention you are expecting people to use.

No, Intel dedicates a huge portion of the die to the HD/Iris graphics cores.

According to AnandTech's article on Iris Pro (see last paragraph), Intel is dedicating somewhere around 65% of their total die area to the GPU in this generation.



Yeah, and it feels like such a waste of space and transistors when you have a dedicated GPU and it goes unused. Those transistors would be better spent on more cores. 16 core i7 when? tongue.png
