i have a ton of hardware i need to test and my friend has 3 dell optiplexes that needs testing so im wondering how i can test hardware and not have to go through the process of uninstalling drivers, i know of DDU for GPUs but idk on ram, CPU, WiFi card and mobo and also how do you swap a drive from one PC to another easily without drivers interfering asking on behave of my friend that has 3 optiplexes to test but only has 1 drive.
i know youtubers edit that out but i seen some dude revert windows on stream took him like 10 mins i dont know how to do and yes i see that for some people windows will just detect and install the drivers for the newly installed hardware but i have tried and either it brings me to safe mode because of change or it gives me a BSOD or other errors becuase i do have to switch boards cause im mainly testing CPUs.
I know it is a bit early and we need to look at the next 12 months before we can conclude this. I do however feel that the 4a is a product launch from someone who actually understands hardware. Some of the problems Google has had over the years (and frankly continues to be plagued with) are as follows:
Overpricing. I think we can all agree with this
Trying to immitate Apple in the wrong things - price, storage options, etc, while not making an attempt at emulating good aspects like excellent customer service and products that are well tested and without flaws (eg pixel 2 screen issues)
Lack of availability outside USA and EU.
Quality control issues
The 4a launch does not guarantee that the device or distribution will be flawless, far from it in fact. However, the one thing they have absolutely nailed is having a single SKU. This may sound like a mundane silly thing, however it offers a lot of benefits:
I hate long good buys.
Article from videogameschronicle: https://www.videogameschronicle.com/news/a-new-nintendo-switch-model-will-launch-next-year-a-new-report-claims/
The only interesting part is the first section, which says.
>"Taipei-based newspaper Economic Daily News claimed on Tuesday that the new Switch would enter production later this year, with a launch planned for Q1 2021.
>According to the publication, the new Switch model will feature upgraded “interactivity” and improved display quality.
>The report cites various hardware manufacturers responsible for the Switch’s Flash storage, Joy-Con controllers and more."
Despite the name, Economic Daily News is taiwanese and the article seems to specify that the hardware WOULD enter production this year, but that may be a mistake on a translator's part.

I’ve been sexually harassed a lot while playing this game. If you get caught cheating once you get hardware ID banned, but for you to get any punishment for sexual harassment you need to have dozens of people report you.
Riot is willing to spend millions to fight cheaters. I want to see them save and review recordings of voice coms if they are flagged for com abuse.
When people tell me that they are going to find me and describe details on how they want to rape me, they should get hardware ID banned.
He claims that SOCOM has been in development and will be a PS5 title, maybe even launch title.
This is interesting because SOCOM has been rumored from insiders as a title that the Guerilla games second team has been working on, as far back as 8+ months ago. Other leakers have said that Guerilla games had a second team working on a 3rd person shooter around that time aswell. As a matter of fact we know Guerilla is working on a multiplayer-focused shooter game based on multiple job listings in 2019. With some hints in the job listings indicating a SOCOM-like game over other potential games.
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this turns out to be true. Thoughts?
Historically, NVIDIA has been a hardware gaming company. This is still the impression most people have even nowadays when they think of NVDA. NVDA has been fighting this image, claiming that they're just as much a software company or an AI company. If you've been paying any attention then you'll have noticed that this is true. But what would "officially" make them primarily an "AI" company? By making more money from data center than from gaming. Of course this is a generalization, they're nowadays already implementing AI in their gaming GPUs (DLSS 2.0, RTX voice), but details don't make headlines.
The big growth stories for NVDA have been data center and self driving cars. Surely also their gaming revenue can be expected to grow but it's not what has been driving NVDA's high PE. Self driving cars haven't taken off yet, they're even expected to decline due to covid, but the story is intact and NVDA has been making progress and partnerships.
Data center meanwhile is already now turning... keep reading on reddit ➡
PS: I originally posted this on /r/DestinyTheGame but someone recommended I share this here too.
Have you ever wondered what PC settings the top Destiny 2 players use? I know I have and while I found a ton of Pro settings lists for Fornite, Valorant, etc, nothing for Destiny 2!
So I went ahead and reached out to my favorite content creators and the content creators they recommended too.
You can find the Destiny 2 Pro Settings list here.
As Destiny 2 is a different beast, this “Pro settings” list is different too. Instead of covering the settings of only professional PVP players (as is done for CS: GO or Valorant), this list covers the content creators and streamers the Destiny 2 community looks up to.
The list includes the following settings/hardware:
Just a small rant about the piss poor quality of Microsoft hardware.
Like many people, my company is working entirely remotely. Going in to the office is an ordeal that requires an unnecessary amount of approvals on multiple levels. Despite this, I've found myself going in for an afternoon, or a whole day, at least once a week during this whole ordeal simply because of the rate at which Surface Pro's fail. Usually it's the SSD. Sometimes the LTE card. Once in a while just no sign of life at all. Our end user machines are 90% Dell Lattitudes and 10% Surface Pro. Yet, the majority of the machines I have replaced since March are Surface Pro's.
Looks like I will be going in again this afternoon for yet another Microsoft caused emergency.
Thanks a lot MS.
PS: A side F you to Dell as well. The power systems on your notebooks over the last few years have caused me a lot of headache, especially the rate at which batteries fail.
The way people are reacting to the Trusted Mode is a fucking joke. All I see is narsissistic assholes downvoting those with actual issues. "You're colorblind and having issues seeing without your filters? Not my problem, I'm not colorblind!" "You pay your rent by spectating and coaching with OBS? Not my problem, I just play with my friends for fun!" and everytime someone points out that it only helps a little against cheaters for a big price to legit minorities, people jump in with the "yeah did you read the FAQ, Valve admitted it doesn't stop all cheaters"... No shit, does that somehow make it better??
Edit: Then there's these issues. I have no way of validating all of the claims, but I've seen more than one people claim issues with drivers.
I like clean, sleek, professional-looking hardware, but it's a real pain to get high-end gaming hardware without my computer area looking like a neon lights party. I really wanted to get a gaming-quality mouse for FPS, but ended up having to take apart my brand-new $70 mouse just so I could disconnect the darn LEDs. We really need more style choices...
I broke my ankle as a preteen in April 2009 and had surgery to get a “pin” in my ankle (looks more like a long screw). Recovery was fine, and the stitches were the dissolving kind, so I didn’t need to get them removed. I followed up with the doctor who arranged the whole surgery about 8 weeks later to take the cast off and was told to wear a boot for a while, then I was good to go.
Fast forward a few years and I have chronic aches in my ankle, particularly on humid days. I figured this may be arthritis, as he’d warned if I didn’t have the surgery that arthritis could be a result of it going untreated. After a few years of on-and-off chronic pain, I went back to him in 2019 to see if I had arthritis.
An assistant took me to his exam room, had me do an X-ray, and he came in to take a look with his young assistant. It was obvious he was trying to impress her - he kept trying to crack jokes while I was obviously concerned about potentially having arthritis in my early twenties. He take... keep reading on reddit ➡
Title basically. I apologize if the idea has already been brought up, but wouldn’t it make more sense to offer Game Pass Ultimate members access to your first party lineup made exclusively with XSX and XSS in mind through streaming rather than being constrained to the weaker hardware? It would incentivize purchasing the new console more while still giving people who don’t upgrade access to your titles.
My mother has adopted some of my interest in Bitcoin and recently decided to put in a good chunk of her life long savings in it. A month ago I purchased a hardware wallet for her and helped her transfer close to 1BTC. Today she found out she had accidentally thrown it away. Luckily, I kept the private keys in safe storage for her.
Looks like some of these lessons can't be repeated enough. BTC teaches personal responsibility. Keep your coins safe people.
I've been reading a lot of posts/comments about the pros/cons of cloud gaming, and I realized thanks to the current Control Ultimate Edition controversy that hardware upgrade/maintenance has often been overlooked.
Long story short, Control's publisher only offers free upgrade to next-gen consoles to those who buy the new Ultimate Edition, while the ones who bought the game last year (even the Deluxe Edition) are pretty much F-ed.
On PC, although a high-end GPU is good for the next 4-5 years, you have to bother with driver installations, Windows related problems, hardware maintenance...
With cloud gaming, your gaming session starts as soon as you launch it (especially on Stadia), no update, no crash (or extremely rare), no worries.
Now that hardware acceleration is available for non-wayland firefox stable users, I thought of making a simple guide to enable it.
about:configin address bar.
gfx.webrender.alland set it to
media.ffmpeg.vaapi-drm-display.enabledand set both to
MOZ_X11_EGL=1variable. Or add the same to /etc/environment file

In the ancient times of 2016, hardware wallets were the new thing. Keep your private keys off your computer, they said. Bought several Ledger Nanos (original), only 4 pictured here. Now, I get the message in the Chrome app that Ledger will no longer support this product as of September 2020 -- not even in Ledger Live.
So, I'm going to have to upgrade and buy some Ledger X's. Guessing that 4 years from now it will be the Ledger Y and in 2030 the Ledger Z.
Lesson, keep the seeds safe on metal and offsite or encrypted somewhere. Seeds should still work when aliens sift through our ruins.
