Random thought of the Day - Geek Central edition
 
I think this thread is pretty self explanatory. :p Post whatever random thoughts you're having about geeky topics, such as computers, video games, or science, or even mathematics, lol. I'll start:

The Intel Core M is absurdly fast for such a low power chip (max TDP: 4.5W) at a clock speed as low as 1.1 GHz, with a maximum of 2.6 GHz. It has a 3065 on Passmark. For comparison, the also-low-power Intel Celeron N2840 (max TDP is 7.5 W), which runs at a base clock speed of 2.16 GHz & a max of 2.58 GHz, has a 1073 on Passmark.

Yeah I know the Celeron is much cheaper, but I still think it's interesting to compare them. The Core M is like an Atom, except it's awesome.

Damn you Nvidia! Why do your display drivers keep crashing all the freaking time when I am trying to play Watch_Dogs?

It's really bugging me I keep flicking between games, I just can't find anything that keeps me interested these days

I wonder if its time I revisit an MMO, FF14 perhaps..

part of me wants to just rush through the rest of witcher 3 since im kind of ready for a new game, but theres soooo much to do that it feels like "why am I rushing instead of enjoying it"


I don't even know what I want to play after this. I waited this long for batman, itd be dumb to buy it full price

This game needs a day/night + weather cycle.

To become an admin for the HG Counter Strike clan, I have to know how to bunny-hop backwards. **** I thought scripts were not allowed on all HG servers, or is possible to do it without them?

I gotta say this android phone makes a darn nice portable gaming platform now that i hooked it up with an Xbox controller. Guess its time to invest in a better battery though.

I guess now we know why they named it Windows.

I'd always wanted this thread to exist, and thought about making it many times but always decided not to.

I went against Kyle maysc in Rocket League today and actually was able to hold myown, we lost though. People that are familiar with Rocket League know Kyle maysc is one of the best players in the game, recently winning against the dominant Cosmic Aftershock.

The Cynthia Nendoroid releases tomorrow on the Pokemon Center website. I hope it isn't too expensive.

I'm still refusing to upgrade to windows 10, it will never happen! Lol, I'm a loyal user of windows 7, all the way baby. >:) But for real, it sounds like a lot of people have been having tons of problems with it, which makes me thankful that I decided not to upgrade. Besides it feels like a smartphone OS... it's like if I wanted a smart phone, I'd go buy a smartphone, not an operating system.

The upgrade suggestions felt intrusive, the supposed data reporting may be as well. Upgrading to a new windows os often seems foolhardy until the dust settles. If it wasn't for gaming, well you know what I am going to say.

I do game too, but I haven't really seen that much evidence that the software that supposedly makes it better has really had any effect. I've seen it Windows 10 in action on a friends computer and I wasn't impressive. In fact they just seem to be getting more and more problems by the day.
