America hasn’t seen a solar eclipse like this since the end of World War I
Next August, Americans will get best chance to see solar eclipse in their lifetimes.

The Solar Eclipse (Total) party is at LEE's house. :D

they have no reason to??

Comcast has no reason to use fiber to the premise because coaxial supplies all of the allotted bandwidth?

Blizzard makes so much money off WoW and has been for years now, so it bothers me that such a popular game from a major developer is so poorly optimized; it requires a decent PC to max everything (think raids and battlegrounds possibly with add-ons where more CPU threads could become useful).

An incentive would be Microsoft helping to fund the transition to further gain OS adoption because people would possibly use Windows 10 more if WoW showed a significant boost from it.

I forgot to mention the fact of new GPUs being capable of benefiting from async compute via concurrency (AMD GCN and Nvidia Pascal).

most pc users only have two to four cores. optimizing for all core usage with the game likely still being based off of legacy code would be a monstrous task.

the best option for the end user would be to just upgrade their parts which helps overall experience and not just how well people run wow lol.

im not saying it shouldn't be done. im saying they have no good reason to as of right now.

edit: most games, even well optimized ones still run off of one to two cores. it's commonplace

Also a completely new designed external radiator kit named “Eisscholle” has been revealed this year. It features ST30 x 360mm radiator and 6x low noise 700RPM fans in push/pull configuration and DC-LT 2600 Ultra low noise Ceramic pump. Special foam will protect the radiator against dust.




It's an AIO...except the whole thing is self contained and external.

I drew this pic back in January 2012, when ppl were arguing about whether the fans on rads should be intake or exhaust.
I used this pic to show where I thought the rads should be.
:)

It only took the Germans 4.5 years to actually make one....the: Alphacool Eisscholle
