        While linux has come a long way with gaming, It has a long way to go. Games do work, but they each have there own annoyances, problems that don't exist on windows 10 or they just don't work at all. Off the top of my head of games that have problems/worse performance/don't work. fallout new vegas, fallout 3, payday 2, arma 3, dayz, dead by daylight, RS6, apex legends, valorant. Even the cherry picked CSGO are disingenous because while you do get higher FPS, It's more unstable and you have more frame drops and lower 0.1%'s on linux.

          i think the steam deck will change these opinions as time goes on. they could have went with windows, but they decided to throw employees time (money) into developing a linux console. the proton github repo was only recently made at `2018-03-13T18:45:27Z' and its affect on compatibility has been incredible since.

          i think we're only going up.

          your points seem more like quirks than it seeming Linux isnt even half way there, which you are implying.
          the largest vidya retailer, valve, made the steam deck, which wouldnt even be a dream if it really had a long way to go
          like if Linux was still trash for games, then it would have elicited laughs if anyone proposed Arch Linux instead of Windows to build their own console. Yet it had millions upon millions of money invested, and got sold out several times
          anon is right, this was huge

      on paper, but unlike your retarded CPU with its extremely long pipeline and extremely low bandwidth efficiency per core means that you're not doing shit at real time, even if its faster for operations that only need really big numbers.

      also a 5950x has nearly the same fp64 thoughput as 10980xe with less cores and it doesn't even have 512bit FMAs hahahaha

      Flash memory usually has a write cycle limit, not read.
      10000 write cycle limit => the entire capacity can be written over 10000 times
      e.g. A 1TB SD card with 1000 cycle limit can basically be written with 1000TB worth of data until the flash memory wears out. However, since they're so slow, most manufacturers don't even bother mentioning this spec. SanDisk has a lifetime warranty on most of their consumer stuff.

    Why is a 1TB microSD card so small when an M2 SSD is like 15 times larger.

      Because:
      1) a SSD using the same density as MicroSd card woud make it grossly expensive.

      2) SSDs are way more resilient to wear, physical damage and electric noise.

      3) MicroSds speeds (about 90 Mbps) are NOT in the same category even than SSDs m.k.1 (700-1000 Mbps), to m.k.2 (easily 7 Gbps) they are 2 orders of magnitude apart

      4) if microsds want to become faster they also need to have a longer read/write life wich in turn would make them bigger, ad then the power managment even bigger and so on

    I'd be astounded that everyone in society has a pocket computer with as much power as my 2000s desktop computer. I would also be disturbed that everyone is constantly staring at their pocket computer when they are out and about, since that didn't really start (by my recollection) until around 2013 or so. 2011 still had normal social interactions by comparison.

    Incidentally, I knew someone who did peace corps around this time, and they were weirded out by that exact thing. It went from "oh yeah one person I know has an iphone" to "everyone is using and staring at a smartphone all of the time in public" pretty quickly (like 2011 to 2014).

      I've been a hikikomori since 2009 and only go out ~1 time a year (some times skipping a few years) for bureaucracy that I can't avoid, and it's weird as fuck every time.
      I also feel like a weirdo, sitting in a waiting room and being the only one not on a phone the entire time.
      Also huge screens everywhere.

    I think I would be most impressed by what AMD has done. I just bought a 6 core processor that will boost to 4.6 Ghz at 65w TDP for $270. That is kind of crazy to me without the coma.

    10 years ago was 2011 so honestly, nothing. Nothing would impress me. Everything we have now was the same in 2011. Ok, 1TB microsd is cool, but not impressive. It's like resolution on a monitor, its inevitable they'll make something with more of x. I won't be impressed in 10 more years when a microsd has 100TB or my monitor is 32K.
    In fact I have extremely high expectations, so if we don't have brain-interface devices in mass production or a colony on mars already I'll be extremely let down. Technology is moving too slow for me to be impressed.

    integer scaling done by gpu.
    feels good being able to use the 1080p resolution on a 4k screen and it looks just as good as 1080p on a native 1080p screen.

    I can store entire TV show episode collections, tens of thousands of episodes, hundreds of shows, on a hard drive that fits in my pocket, and I can view them on a fucking pocket phone with a higher-quality screen than the TV I had in 2010. If that doesn't make every kid who grew up with James Bond think that they're in the future, then I don't know what does.

      related to this, actually working television watches/telephone watches. Shit still blows my mind. Also, that I can, through online TV services, watch TV from across the world through my computer.

    Surprised no one here is talking about blockchain tech. Every big tech company is at risk of a decentralized version coming up and rendering their most reputable obsolete. Facebook, Twitter, Uber, all of those could be recreated purely through smartcontracts and eliminate censorship and in Uber's case, increase the salaries of drivers significantly since there's no middleman to take their cut.

    This thing is the single most impressive things to happen in 10 years.

    The fact that not only it launched and succeeded, but the fact that it's an actual, useful, driveable car, that it's economically viable and that a lot of people are buying it. And I don't mean just Tesla, I mean most EV that are produced now. If you said an all-electric vehicle would be viable in 2010, people would call it a fad and call you a looney and joke about having to pull a plug behind you. But here we are, every time I drive, I spot a lot of them in the wild.

    Another impressive technology is wireless charging. Not that the tech itself is impressive - we knew about that for years, but the fact that it's used in consumer applications is impressive.

    USB Type-C is another impressive tech. Well, 2011 was a year before Lighning was introduced, but back then the only widespread symmetric connector was the TRS jack. To think that such a simple idea as having a cable you could plug any way was not made earlier actually impresses me.

    Bitcoin and crypto price and popularity, too. Back when I heard of it, in my wildest dreams I thought it would reach the price of like 100-300$ and could be used as a universal currency, but as of now it's a huge asset with 5-digit values, and there is a myriad of crypto trying to mimic it's success.

        True, but you can easily drive them to work, grocery store and back home without a single charge, and then charge with the cheap electricity (depending on where you live).

    I stopped caring about new tech at around that point anyway. Smartphones peaked at around 2014, but who cares; they also brought social cancer.

    Nothing really, it's been the same shit since 2011 but with more censorship and surveillance.
    Honestly the most interesting thing is cheap drones and actual VR headsets (of which I've never tried one because they are prohibitively expensive in my country).
    Large monitors were already affordable in 2011 and cellphones peaked in 2015 just to become enormous bricks full of googleshit (yeah yeah rooting, whatever. You can't root the 6.5" size out of the devices though).
    I'd be kinda impressed at AMD's performance, but that's just an incremental update and it would be actually kind of underwhelming to see we're still at something like 8 to 16 cores when 4 core CPUs were already the norm in 2008.
