    Also hopefully non-APU Piledriver, though that's looking like it will be Spring/Summer.


    Where are you getting this bullcrap news?

    Piledriver is only a week or so from release Streamroller should be out next summer.
    Some sites have put it up for preorder already.

    I really have done almost none at all read some tutorials on it I can get data and create tables ect.

    But I have been messing with OODB and its made a lot more sense.
    Player can just be a class with stats and I just create an object of it I already did this already this just makes it easier with the DB.

    I will probably go back and learn SQL at some point, but for now I just kinda want to spend more time on the game rather then learning another language to talk to a DB.

    Won't be out for a couple years or so though. So waiting till then is pointless as you'll miss out on a lot of games released prior to Xbox 720 & PS4.


    The Nextbox is not more then a couple months from announcement. MS contacted AMD the year before last to work out some designs for the hardware.

    Windows 8 is not better. It's more restricted and too mac-Like.
    That being said I will not be updating.


    It is not more restricting and its not mac like anymore then 7 if you consider that mac like?

    posted a message on Frustrated with SQL(Java)
    As a small project I have been creating a MMO RPG as a small challenge to my self I don't plan on really ever finishing it just as practice going parts.

    Anyway I decided for login and stats I would use a SQL database a H2.
    I am not liking SQL too much while the options with it seem good its seems to be a pain to do simple little things.

    Before this I was just reading from a YML file, but I realized I hate SnakeYML and really hate using it.

    So just kinda looking for other suggestions of what to do or maybe a better SQL book/tutorial then what I have been using.

    posted a message on AMD A10 5800K vs. i5 2500k
    Quote from Ankenmann2

    Whoever said rendering work, any GPU higher than a 7750 would do better in OpenCL.


    Comparing them directly the APU will win in OpenCL work.

    This is a stupid comparison.
    You are comparing a 130$ CPU and a 220$ cpu they are built for different parts of the market.

    Depends

    For gaming the A10 5800k wins hands down.
    For rendering work that uses Opencl the 5800k is faster.
    For just CPU performance the 2500k

    posted a message on Galaxy SIII, Nexus, or a Droid Razr M?
    Quote from TheFieldZy

    IPS panels may be considered old technology, but their color reproduction supersedes that of AMOLED. AMOLED pentile displays have to share a green pixel for every red and blue, or something along those lines, so the color reproduction suffers compared to the IPS. However, both are fantastic that you can hardly tell the difference between the iPhone's IPS display and the Samsung Galaxy SIII AMOLED Pentile display. Not to mention the materials in the AMOLED degrade over time.


    Not all AMOLED is Pentile even then its not noticeable on a phone. AMOLED when displaying black uses 0 power it turns off the pixel.
    That is the main advantage of AMOLED is the power efficiency. The degrade in materials is not a massive issue in phones due to the fact most people don't have more then 2 years.


    Quote from 16cadrian

    The S4 isn't a bad cpu, sure its old (2 years I think) but it still gets the job done... It would be nice to see a standard in cell phone and tablet cpu/gpu's (I'm looking at you Nvidia)...

    Also Asus has yet to make a cell phone... Knowing their tablets it would probably kick ass...

    Edit: I was thinking of a different mobile cpu, its only 1 year old


    I simply mean that its bringing nothing new we have seen specs like this before. LG is not Motorolla in that they don't have the history of great build quality going for them.

    Quote from BlackStar1010

    I read a couple articles on it.
    http://www.phonedog.com
    http://news.cnet.com


    LG o god LG. I like their other products but their smart phones are just no.

    But I will give LG a chance lets look at the specs.

    "the phone is expected to come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon quad-core processor, 2 gigabytes of RAM, a 1,280x768 True-High Definition IPS display, an 8-megapixel camera, and a nonremovable battery. It will also have no microSD slot and only 8GB to 16GB of internal storage, according to Modaco."

    So it sucks IPS panels are old tech I refuse any phone that lacks AMOLED now.
    Snapcragon s4 old.
    Non removable battery I thought this was a nexus?

    Ya no nothing new here move along.

    they are coming out with a new one? funny, I didn't read anything about it, plus people like phonedog would be all over it by now...


    There have been rumors but nothing confirmed. If it has not gone through the FCC yet its a ways off.

    Quote from CodofMC

    Is that the battery life for your Nexus? Seems pretty good to me. Plus I would be on wifi virtually all the time since I live on-campus at a university so I should have even better battery life. I don't have a use for bluetooth either and I will rarely have to use the GPS since I don't have a car. When the new Nexus comes out I would imagine the old one would get cheaper as well, which would be great.


    Ya that's on my nexus.
    There is no new nexus for a while. Get the s3 its better then the nexus is every way.
