a personal invitation from Butler to help test everquest

The United States is the second largest energy consumer (19%) in terms of total use in 2010; China (prc) accounted for 20.3% and global energy consumption is increasing at the fastest pace since 1973.
Consumption in the world's richest countries grew by 3.5 percent, the most since 1984; consumption in developing countries — particularly resource-hungry ones in Asia and South America — logged a 7.5 percent increase.

In the US the majority of this energy is derived from fossil fuels: in 2010, data showed 25% of the nation's energy came from petroleum, 22% from coal, and 22% from natural gas. Nuclear power supplied 8.4% and renewable energy supplied 8% (mainly dams and biomass and to a lesser extent wind power, geothermal and solar energy.)
Energy consumption has increased at a faster rate than domestic energy production over the last fifty years in the US; the difference largely met through imports.
Gasoline is refined from crude oil. No surprise there, but most electricity in this country is also produced from burning fossil fuels. The real question when it comes to fuel economy is which of the two cars is the most efficient use of available fossil fuels?
The refining process to convert oil into gas is more efficient, but the efficiency of the electric car more than makes up for losses during power production. In terms of efficiency, emissions and durability, the electric car has a clear advantage over gas.


To hold 'electric cars' responsible for 'making the air dirtier' is being misinformed and shortsighted at best, at worst being intentionaly deceptive.
Conventional cars are simpler and cheaper. For this reason, they are the go-to choice for the majority of new car buyers. Since the 1830s cheaper gas, better roads, mass-production techniques and a need for longer range spelled the end of the electric car.
Electricity is the natural energy force that keeps society functioning at its most convenient level. It powers homes, hospitals, businesses, farms, factories, offices and transport systems. Electricity is an absolutely essential service.
Those electric cars use a trace amount of commercial electricity. That electricity being derived from black coal, coal seam gas and natural gas fuels. By 2020 many communities aspire for 20% of electricity used to come from renewable energy sources.

A study conducted by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power found that electric vehicles would reduce emissions substantially over 100,000 miles, producing just 75 pounds of pollutants, compared to the gas engine's 3,008 lbs. of pollutants.
The California Air Research Board estimates that electric vehicles will produce more than 90 percent lower emissions than the equivalent gas engine.
The research and results are staggering. The electric vehicle smashes the gas engine in terms of pollution.

Within the next three months you will be looking at us$1000-1500 to rebuild your system for high end +27" display (two or three monitor adds another $600-1000.)

The 22nm HaswellE 6 and 8c unlocked cpu should be out within three months (3q14) along with the x99 Wellsburg chipset mobo (motherboard). the LGA 2011-3 is not backward compatable with the 2011.

data:
Z97-oc able + Dynamic Storage Accelerator (DST); H97-no oc; (posted 1404) will get legacy support for PCI-Express M.2 storage, as PCI-Express M.2 has roughly 67% more bandwidth available opposed to SATA3 (6 Gbps); lga1150, single 16 slot gpu, 2 dimm/ch, 3 display, 6 sata3.

x99 express wellsburg chipset 6.5W tdp, 22nm hi-k haswellE 6 & 8c unlocked, ddr4 ( <2133MHz, 4 dimm/ch, 16 thread, 288 pin, ?1.2v), lga 2011-3, 5 pci3 x16 (two 16slot gpu + one 8slot, 40 lane pcie gen3), 10 sata3 ports, 3q14, clarksville phy Gb ethernet 5Gtfer/s, realtec audio, 20MB L3 cache, hyper threading 16 logical cores, tdp 130-140W;
not backward compatable with 2011 waimea bay platform (x79), ?no 14nm Broadwell sucession 3q14?, 4c no-gpu config dies gone.

May have to get used to the 140W cpu vs my curent 30-40W amd 2c system... going to help to have a window unit AC near modern computers.

Black Desert (BD) is somewhat under the radar for non South Koreans. (no SK id# to register for beta consideration.)
Very little is on its homepage; for the last few weeks, they are even taking a break from their facebook (warning dhs datamining site) page as they prepare for the 3rd Closed Beta.

btw, some HD screenshots and 90 sec video/trailer

ps the ddr4 (2133MHz 288pin) mobo, 8c haswellE (rev 3 lga2011) and 14nm skylake (tABLEt) intel cpu should be out by 2015, when many of the high end systems will be updated, esp if W9 comes out.
dp1.2 supports 2160p @ 60Hz but takes 199% transport stream; dp1.3 32.4Gbps link; 3840x2160 pixel with 10b/ch color @ 60Hz req 16Gb/s bandwidth (eg. dp1.2 [2009] 5.4Gb/s, ~hdmi2 [1309], thunderbolt2)
dual-dvi 8.16Gb/s, dp1.3 4K@60Hz 8.1Gbps/ch (Low Latency, Zero Artifact compression algorithm, beyond Cu bandwidth limitation is 8K res 7680x4320 [16:9] 33.1Mpixel, 8192x4320 [17:9] 35.3Mp) whuxga 7680x4800 36.8Mp; uxga 1600x1200@60Hz 87MHz (@80Hz 116MHz);

sata3 bus (6Gb/s) vs sata express and pcie (16Gb/s) attached (new I/O interface) ssd, e.g. mini pcie (< 100GB) for notebook.

What res display are you using, 1280x720 on a 17" monitor not really need the gpu horsepower that 1920x1080 on a 27" would?
What cpu? 2 or 4GHz, 2 core or 6c
The diference in performance would be about 40% between a 780 and the 660, but at a $500 price. For that kind of money maby a 512GB ssd system drive and doubling the system memory may give beter results.

Intel skylake 1q16 (14nm, low pwr apu for tablet use, pcie 4, ddr4, sata express, successor to Broadwell 3q13 [the 22nm Haswell 2q13 die shrink])

xeon, atom (low pwr, cell phone [burst traffic workload]), quark (last year's 32b system on a chip, i.e. wearable devices, and this year's Edison, i.e. WiFi/Bluetooth wireless networking), core (+performance: sandy/ivy bridge), Sandy->Ivy->Haswell;

barcelona/phenom (4c x86, '03) (K8 a K7 rebuild), 64b extension, memory controller; K9/amd64 2c athlon64x2; K10 4q07 (phenom 65nm), Magny Cours/phenom2 (12c, opteron, 45nm that could max ddr3 1.3GHz @ 42GB/s [wPrime memory bandwidth test]) '08 x3 L2 cache;
bobcat '10 low pwr, thin netbook ambitions;
Given an infinite budget across all vectors one could eliminate all performance/power bottlenecks, but you would likely take an infinite amount of time to complete a microarchitecture design;
taking all of those realities into account usually means making tradeoffs, even when improving a design.
e.g. We can see an example of a clear tradeoff when AMD stuck with a 2-issue front end for 28nm Jaguar vs Intel's Atom. Not including a decoded micro-op cache and opting for a simpler loop buffer instead is an example of another. AMD likely noticed a lot of power being wasted during loops, and the addition of a loop buffer was probably the best balance of complexity, power savings and cost.
AMD also improved the instruction cache prefetcher, not because of an over abundance of bandwidth but by revisiting the Bobcat design and spending some more time on the implementation in Jaguar.
Those IC prefetcher improvements are simply AMD doing things better in Jaguar, not being under the same pressure to introduce a brand new architecture as was the case with Bobcat.
The instruction buffer between the instruction cache and decoders grew in size with Jaguar, a sort of half step towards the more heavily decoupled fetch/decode stages in Bulldozer.


New microarchitecture high perf interlagos/bulldozer (eight 2c modules, 32nm, 3q11, server chip); abu Dhabi/piledriver (Thomas Seifert’s “Project Win” minimum possible job for the lowest cost, 2gen bulldozer, 32nm, 4-16c, 2q11, +10% clock, +15% perf) vs Intel Romley two socket Sandy Bridge EP server line is competitive with the top end Xeon on performance, performance per watt, and performance per dollar; Kaveri/steamroller (3gen, 1q14, 2c x86, 28nm, parallelism, +30% instructions/cycle, 856 Gflop); excavator/carrizo (4gen, '15, 20nm, ddr4) Steamroller cores do experience up to a 20% increase in instructions per cycle (IPC) over the Piledriver cores.

Memory bandwidth can be a huge limit to scaling processor graphics performance, especially since the GPU has to share its limited bandwidth to main memory with a handful of CPU cores. Intel's workaround with Haswell was to pair it with 128MB of on-package eDRAM. AMD has typically shied away from more exotic solutions, leaving the Kaveri looking pretty normal on the memory bandwidth front.
AMD is focusing on powerful graphics capabilities, Mantle using Kaveri APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) has 2.4 billion transistors, and 47 percent of them are aimed at better, high-end graphics. A-Series chips will range in price from $119 to $173, while the power consumption will range from 45 watts to 95 watts. CPU frequency ranges from 3.1 GHz (gigahertz) to 4 GHz.
jaguar/bobcat 28nm vs silvermount/intel; "little/incremental advance in cpu other than efficiency, high single-threaded performance" desktop (tablet, netbook, smartphone)...

? us$700 for a gaming pc?
even a mediocre gpu alone would be $300 (gtx 770 or r9 280x)
a 256GB ssd should be ok for a sysyem drive ($160) sata3
W7 (no sp1 spyware/backdoor)
the 2TB hd ($100) sata2 for archive storage, antique 500GB hd are like $35
not to mention 27" monitor are near $300
plus assembly cost ~$100 since you are replacing mobo
600W power supply 80+ ($100)

tough to get a system for < $1k
ps when the 7970 came out they were $500, the 280x (28nm) is only $300 with over 4Tflop performance at about 65*C, a gtx770 should be closer to 70*.

Indie fighting game Yatagarasu Attack on Cataclysm (AoC) raised nearly us$120,000 on the crowdsourcing site Indiegogo - twice what they asked for - they can not get their hands on over half the cash.


An email from paypal advises that they have ‘reserved’ the funding and will release ‘up to 50% of the funds’ before Yatagarasu AoC is released and the rest only after they have verified copies of paid invoices. What is more, they provide no option to discuss, stating we should ‘contact us closer to the release date beginning of next year’ to arrange release of the funds.

paypal refusing to provide funds legitimately raised to COMPLETE a game until after the game is released is just an attempt to derail the game development.

In April paypal tried the same scam on Skullgirls; Lab Zero raised over us$800,000 so they could make more content for indie fighting game.
paypal froze Lab Zero's account, locking them out of their cash and preventing employees from being paid (part of the cash was to pay the wages of the developers needed to create the content).
Following complaints, including one lodged with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, paypal have since opened up the account, though they are still holding $35,000 as "collateral".

In 2011 paypal froze Goldhawk Interactive's account for 180 days ("to protect against chargebacks") forcing the indie developer to stop pre-orders of its debut title Xenonauts (a strategy sim).

BOYCOTT paypal as the thief bankers they are trying to impersonate.
