Can anyone give me a good GPU/CPU review site that doesn't do sponsored content? Like 75% of all articles about RTX i have found have been sponsored by Nvidia and it sucks.

are there any PCs that use an ARM chip?
There are desktop computers with Arm CPUs but they are not aimed at regular users. For example, here is this beast: https://store.avantek.co.uk/avantek-thunderx2-arm-workstation-thunderx2station.html

There are laptops with Arm chips now that run Windows on Arm, but last time I heard about it they couldn't get GNU/Linux on it.

As far as I know, Arm GPUs don't have Free drivers. Do you happen to know about something like that?
>There are desktop computers with Arm CPUs but they are not aimed at regular users.
If you want a arm desktop you should just get a SBC: https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/single-board-computers

>There are laptops with Arm chips now that run Windows on Arm, but last time I heard about it they couldn't get GNU/Linux on it.
This is incorrect, there are many arm laptops that ship with GNU/Linux natively, many Chromebooks are examples of this, they also ship with coreboot by default making them more free than just about anything else. The ASUS C201 being one that can be librebooted, but requires a external wireless adapter and has a low quality keyboard.

>As far as I know, Arm GPUs don't have Free drivers. Do you happen to know about something like that?
At minimum there are many Mali, Adreno, Videocore, and Vivante GPUs with open source drivers available. There are plenty of options.

If you've got a excess of capital and you're worried about performance you could also get a Raptor system with are based off IBM Power: https://www.raptorcs.com/content/BK1B02/intro.html
I just noticed my FSF link there wasn't to actual SBCs just to SOCs. Just to keep the list reasonable and useful I'll list all those computers with open source hardware, which have CPU/GPU combinations which not only are open source but which don't have any GPL violations, and are capable of running a full desktop system.
All the Cubieboards except for 4 and 5: http://cubieboard.org/model/
https://www.raptorcs.com/content/BK1B02/intro.html (this actually goes further than the others here to have a entirely opensource extremely fast CPU)
>>644 Look at the steam hardware survey and go for the most commonly used hardware , this way you will get a system with reasonably good compatibility for most games since game developers use this data when they decide what hardware they should support so that they can have the broadest audience. And if a load of people are using a particular CPU or GPU then that means it is probably not complete rubbish. https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam

General Yuri Discussion Thread Comrade 09/29/2019 (Sun) 15:37:07 No. 11 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is for:
*Screenshots, pages, and discussion about general series, current or old, not covered by an existing thread, be it Yuri, fully automated luxury communism, space or gay space communism. Cosmonauts and others both welcome.
*News reports about things relevant to our interest
*Original content that doesn't fit any specific thread topics
*Pretty much anything that doesn't have or need its own thread.

He made yaoi illegal but legalized yuri.
>In 1934 the Soviet government recriminalised homosexuality in the Soviet Union. On March 7, 1934, Article 121 was added to the criminal code, throughout the entire Soviet Union, expressly prohibited only male same-sex sexual intercourse, with up to five years of hard labor in prison. There were no criminal statutes regarding lesbianism.
Am I a retard if I thought this was going to be a thread to talk about Yuri Gagarin and the Soviet space program?
It's fine comrade, I was fooled by the kosmonaut as well.
Didn't even know what yuri was as a thing before googling it after this thread.

>>5467 Extremely so with Viet gusanos. Being the second most salty bunch about the revolution (only behind Miami Cubans), they get triggered constantly about anything remotely related The communist party. Even try to attack a household for simply using the current flag or having HCM on the altar. Cringe alert https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjIHe5VSHc4 On the whole Wikipedia shit, most articles on the death toll of the war, the NLF (they insisted on calling them the derogatory name of Vietcong), HCM or the multiple made up massacres supposedly committed by the NLF are barred from editing by a bunch of gusanos even when new numbers and data on the war surfaces.

>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsi1at587Ok&list=PLe2h1d1tw-WpIB3io47nmPCm0S4hVxTcd Not anti communist, but more anti 'SJW boogey man'. That doesn't stop how weird the songs are. I know crazy leftist exist, but with songs like 'Antifa HOES' and 'I Like Trump (clean version)' and lyrics like 'Swimming through their sea of marxist tears/ allied with my fellow red pilled peers' you know exactly how much they know about leftism.

Mercenaries 2 lets you shoot up a Texan PMC and later side with based Xi against the American government trying to intervene in Venezuela to promote the Texan PMC's interests There is also the PLAV, or People's Liberation Army of Venezuela, who is armed with all kinds of Cold War equipment you can use as well. Better yet, at the end of the game, if you side with the Americans they stab you in the back, but if you side with the Chinese they keep their word and help you out.
you know I'm trying to get into game development myself, if it goes well, I promise I'll make a cod ripoff but you play as communists all the time.

Starting off, it's sounding like CDDA's 0.F is going to come a lot sooner than the 0.D update came out, maybe coming towards the end of this year or early next year. There has already been experimentation with vehicles that can ascend/descend the z-levels, which may mean that the z-levels finally get bugfix'd and standardized instead of being something that has been mostly neglected for a few years.

Yeah it's probably the best way to get music since oink and what.cd shut down. Funny how it's been around since the days of Napster and LimeWire but somehow flew under the radar.

I am. But AFAIK it's not really peer to peer, is it? The files are stored on regular computers but the index of files is stored on some central servers. There's now something on i2p called MuWire that IIRC at least claimed to be actually decentralised, but I'm not sure. I couldn't manage to get it working anyway.
