BREAKING NEWS

Vega 56 is fine.
Vega 64 is shit.

They're both overpriced like every GPU on the market currently.

Wait for Navi and Volta in late 2018.

>one night with 10 tabs open

Firefox is using less memory, they said.

Does anyone knows what "unused-gc-things" is and why is accumulating so much shit?

Is it garbage collector? Why is not being erased? Even clicking on "free memory from GC" in about:memory does nothing.

Can be something in my about:config?

Help, please.

This is why I switched to chrome like 4 years ago. Firefox had perpetual memory leaks that seemingly everyone would claim didn't exist (or were somehow my fault lol) and after a full day of browsing it would start taking up around 4GB of memory and 30%+ CPU until crashing. After restarting from the crash, it would work well until the usual timeframe passed again, rinse and repeat.

If that shit is still going on, I'll never go back even though I really want to stop using chrome.

Faster Function Units. It's a known fact that Intel has better FUs than AMD. Their superscalar professors are just naturally better because of this.

Because Intel paid you to say so.

>>61899787
AMD CPOOs are inherently cheap knockoffs. That's literally the only reason AMD exists - making budget clones of Intel chips. Some things never change.

I am currently using Debian, just coming from Arch:

>pacman, aur

and that's it. That's the only advantage arch has, and it isn't that superb. It's good, yes, but not long miles distant from the others.

the downside is that arch is a ricing-magnet. You'll probably spend less time doing what should be done and more time making it look neat because arch is the ricer's choice and you have to resiste greatly in order not to be swallowed by the eggregore.

How to assemble a PC, select components & more (outdated)
https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560 - poverty-tier builds
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games
>Vega NOW.

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.

What would you pick?

I have an offer from a very well known company that would make my CV look impressive and offer great training. However the commute is long and I know I'd leave eventually. If I were to join it would only be to put it on my CV and being able to show off.

I also have offers from remote companies. Remote is my ultimate dream as I fucking hate commuting and in-person workplace culture. I also want to be free to travel and my colleagues would be likeminded. However, it's a startup and they're more likely to fail or kick me out. As a junior dev, training probably wouldn't be as extensive, or nonexistent. I worked for a startup a few months ago and it ended awfully.

What would you do, /g/?

tl;dr:
>world renowned company, lots of training and less likely of being replaced or kicked out as a junior dev
>remote company, no commute and free to travel extensively. Ultimate dream, but more risky and less training.

Trying to get out of it man. Remote feels less like wagecuckery + I have more time to work on my side shit but it's riskier. Being fired would be even worse. Hence my dilemma
>>
as someone who faces this issue daily i must with a heavy heart say wagecuck. just do everything you can to make it as painless as possible by reducing commute times and have 1 day of work from home
