    I've actually talked about doing this for years but this is the major problems. The first thing as you pointed out his lag, so each state must have its own dedicated data center in addition each data center must be connected to each other with dedicated fiber optics. The actual infrastructure is just not there. You're basically rebuilding the internet as a giant LAN network for gaming. The next problem is user bandwidth limits and data speeds. My download speed is 5MB and I guarantee you I'm not going to be running any kind of 4K especially with a 1MB upload. The only way this technology is going to work is by purchasing a small console and it'll probably be one year lease agreements with a contract. The next thing is we need smart game engines. The brand new title Battlefield 5 running in 4k should be able to run on of 128MB of RAM on Windows 95 computer with the right GPU. The problem is the developers have made the game engines so complicated that 90% of the processing is waste. Think about Battlefield, Call of Duty, World of Warcraft what do all games have in common textures. When I installed a video game there should be a C:\Program Files\Textures which is universally shared across multiple games to reduce hard drive space. The game industry only cares about maximizing profits and putting out stupid titles every 6 months. when they should be focused more on expansion packs that are free. The only way a device like this would ever work is if it has on-board storage. So all the GPU processing and everything is done at the data center. However when the information is sent to the user it just looks like complex mathematical codes on the user end. But then apply the texture package and you eliminate almost all bandwidth and you then have high-end 4K graphics. This device is basically security cameras on steroids, the receivers at the data center, the monitors at your house. If game developers redesign their video games a game like World of Warcraft would probably be less than 500mb in size hard to believe.

  • General Obi Wan Kenobi

    the 1080 has 8GB of dedicated video RAM. Do you really need two of them to get you up to 16GB? I've got a 6GB 1060 in my machine and it makes the latest graphics heavy games its bitch. There is also a lot of room for improvement. In a couple of years I can upgrade the CPU with a faster i7 and swap the 1060 for a 1080 which would extend the life of the system by years. I've already had a look inside and it looks easy enough to do. In a few years when the 1080s and faster i7 quad cores fall in price this system will get a new lease on life. OR maybe I'll just buy a newer more powerful Alienware 17, but if prices drop as I hope they will, self upgrading would be cheaper I believe. Just the prospect of being able to make these upgrades has me looking forward to that day.

  • General Obi Wan Kenobi

    "Wow, this thing is THICK!" - What my wife said the first time she saw my erect penis.

    Also, that system in this video looks to be only a little bit thicker than my old Alienware 17. My much newer Alienware 17R4 is significantly thinner but without compromising cooling while tripling its gaming power over the first AW17.

  • superlinux
    superlinux 4 days ago

    What Linus did here is breaking a CPU GHz limit similar to trying to break the speed of light. I guess it was like 4GHz or a little more, but not 5GHz. I say so because I read once in a programming book about multiprocessing that there is such limit which forced the manufacturers to build SMP CPUs (i.e. multicore CPU) just to keep the CPUs cold and not melt down because of the generated heat. This is what should have Linus tried to seek and research. why not make a true freezer box ( like in the freezer of a refrigerator) instead of just using a fan and see whether Linus can go 6Ghz on 40 degrees Centigrade .maybe use liquid nitrogen to get things colder :)
