How come Asus can make the price of their Strixx 100 to 200 dollars more than regular cards of the same type? Just because they're clocked a little higher?
I would've bought a different card it's just that I have 3 monitors but no displayport connection so I need at least 2hdmi connections, and Asus Strixx are the only cards that have it. But is that worth the extra money?
Why is Asus so much more expensive than a similar card from MSI for example?
You dont have to buy it if you don't want to.
I bought mine because I the price was worth the quiet fans coming from a HD 5650 with one tiny fan. Fells good men
>You dont have to buy it if you don't want to.
Yeah that seems obvious, but they are the only ones that still put 2hdmi connections on their card. But for 200$ extra, I might as well buy a new monitor that does support displayport so I wouldn't have to put up with their insane prices.
the problem is 1 have one main 27" monitor, which only has hdmi and dvi, 1 second monitor that only has dvi, and 1 tv that only has hdmi. So for those 3 monitors I need at least 2 dvi's and 1hdmi or 2hdmi and 1 dvi. And Asus are the only ones that do that.
So why are they that much more expensive?
Is an Asus 1080ti so much gonna outperform and MSI 1080ti?

Holy shit guys it's happening for real

/sqt/ -- Comfy Minimalism Edition
Started tooling around with Arch this week. Ranxstartwithout a display manager / environment, with i3, xterm, and xorg-xclock, following the Arch Wiki xinit advice. The result was super bare-boned, which I assumed it would happen, but the terminal emulator text was also too small to read. Is this normal without much configuration? Weird skeletal emulator windows and small text by default?
What if modern tablets/netbooks went down this path?
They'd be shit. No, really. Tablets only really took off the way they did when the "overgrown iPhone" approach to them became a thing.
Netbooks and handhelds like that are just too small to really be practical for a physical keyboard. Any task or use case that needs such a small device probably doesn't get any benefit from a physical keyboard, and any that really call for a physical keyboard probably don't need a device that small.
Now don't get me wrong, I find them as interesting and fun to play with as the next /g/entleman, but in practical terms they're pretty pointless.
How i fucking wish we had something like this just now.
Heck, it could be just a phablet slapped on instead of a screen and id still buy it for the convenience of a proper keyboard instead of the meme that is touchscreen typing.
What would /g/ consider the worse anti-piracy measures a company or business has ever used? Can you name them? I'm curious to know if any we're just downright malicious in there attempts to stop people from pirating. Or if you had to go through so many hoops it wasn't worth it to get it working.
Contemporary "anti-piracy" measures are already very malicious and, like always, they only ever punish legitimate, paying customers.
Don't modern blurays force you to be online only and don't play on older bluray players or even PS3/PS4?
A few days before Pokemon Black and White were released in Japan, a version of the ROM was leaked online and disseminated about /vp/. The entire game was playable, but you couldn't gain experience. This was eventually patched, but it was a special kind of hell.
Incidentally, there was also an anti-piracy message inserted into Pokemon FireRed that can be seen using some early emulators that weren't so perfect at pretending to be a real GBA. One of the fishermen in Vermilion City will say, "By the way, if you like this game, buy it or die."
