What the fuck is this? I started up my computer and this shows up as the new logo for Nightly.
What the fuck is going on?

I noticed my resource monitor was reporting 100% CPU usage. I couldn't get it to drop so I did a completely clean install of a legitimate copy of Windows 10 and the only thing I've installed was Google Chrome. Even before I did that I've still had 100% CPU usage. WHAT THE FUCK?
Any recommendations for a fix beyond the things on the first page of Google?
What makes this better than Windows 10?
Should I switch to Irssi? I used weechat for years but I'm considering switching clients.

When did this board become an AMD propaganda site? You literally aren't allowed to say anything bad about AMD anymore. This entire board's sole purpose has become to encourage people to buy AMD products.
Planning on buying this or the V20. Should i just end my life now?
My friend bought a gaming laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 7000, specs below) and is pretty faulty (getting bsod). He's thinking of just exchanging it for a different laptop completely. Any good laptops around this range with similar specs?
CPU: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5-6300HQ (quad-core, 3MB Cache, up to 3.2GHz)
Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M (4GB GDDR5 RAM), Intel HD Graphics 530
RAM: 8GB DDR3L (1,600MHz)
Screen: 15.6-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 anti-glare LED-backlit display
Storage: 1TB 5,400 RPM hybrid drive w/ 8GB cache
Ports: 3 x USB 3.0; HDMI; SD card reader; headphone/microphone jack
Connectivity: 802.11ac; Bluetooth 4.0; gigabit ethernet
Camera: 720p webcam
Weight: 5.67 pounds
Size: 15.08 x 10.45 x 1 inches (W x D x H)
The laptops you'll find for ~$800 will be cheap ones like Inspirons or equivalent HP ones with decent specs but cooling problems that'll get throttled or wont be able to provide smooth framerates at 1080p at high settings.
Think about this: If the mods did their job, this place wouldn't be such an irremediable shit hole.
What does Hiroyuki Nishimura win for letting this place rot to the ground? Isn't all political discussion supposed to never leave /pol/, yet it seems inevitable to DISCUSS TECHNOLOGY without resorting to talk anything remotely related to politics, be it degrading an individuals value based on their race and sex (themes that have nothing to do with technology and don't enhance discussion)?
Why does the other extreme has to be "It's shit and it will always be shit, nothing I can do about it."?
The current circulation of threads seems to be a running gag that was never funny and the people didn't get the memo.
What do I propose as a solution? Tighten the rule and put capable people as moderators, ban a certain range of topics from discussion and eliminate fire starters. Note, I'm not saying everyone should be nice with each other and we should hug and circle-jerk as if it were Reddit, but a zero tolerance rule about select topics is seriously needed (for example, let retards discuss which programming language is 'the best' as much as they like, but ban all discussion that have political/religious/moral standings).
We're all free, but nobody want to be responsible about it.
Don't bother telling me. I know this is useless.
Why I do agree with you on moderation is a fucking joke here. I also believe it's only half the problem. The other half is how politics in general has seeped into the tech sector. Everything that tech companies do seems to have a political agenda behind it and then are afraid to be vocal about it, and if all tech companies want to do is talk politics it's kind of hard for other people not too as well.
I do believe your statement is true, but my solution should take care of it. After all there's still people on this board that would prefer politics out of their technology discussion.
Now, the problem (for whoever benefits from having a large pool of people on a single website exchanging tons of information, be it true or false) with my solution is that [if it somehow works] a lot of people are going to leave 4chan. Which you could argue it's going to kill the damned thing, but I hope it would just reform it.
We really don't know, it could go either way. But I do prefer that over the status quo.
Why shouldn't I buy a $1600 Razer Blade Stealth or a $1750 XPS 15? I don't want to game, I just want a really good laptop that lasts me quite some time without any significative loss in performance. Also, keep in mind I run Parabola as my OS.
>gamer or dell laptops
mate those things will edge so hard and heat up so fast youll say good bye to 1k within almost a year to 3 years. Im also talking about dell laptops, they blow asshole. Try a good brand like samsung or another luxury brand thats built well not a meme top
