what does "Revision: A1" mean? is it like "stepping" in CPUs?
how can you tell before buying a graphics card which revision you are getting?
Yes, but graphics cards aren't often revised. Most stay at the initial revision throughout their lifespan. The GTX 780 is one exception, and the B1 revision models overclock far, far better than the A1 revision cards. Most B1s can get up to 1400MHz+, putting them above any 970.
A crystal ball.

Microsoft has inadvertently demonstrated the intrinsic security problem of including a universal backdoor in its software after it accidentally leaked its so-called "golden key"—which allows users to unlock any device that's supposedly protected by Secure Boot, such as phones and tablets.
The key basically allows anyone to bypass the provisions Microsoft has put in place ostensibly to prevent malicious versions of Windows from being installed, on any device running Windows 8.1 and upwards with Secure Boot enabled.
And while this means that enterprising users will be able to install any operating system.
The golden keys were found by MY123 and Slipstream in March this year. They've just posted, on a rather funky website, a description both of Microsoft's security errors and of its seeming reluctance to patch the issue. The researchers note that this snafu is a real-world demonstration of the lack of wisdom in the FBI's recent demands for universal backdoors in Apple's devices. They wrote:
The researchers seem to have found the golden key—which isn't a PKI-type private key you would use to sign binaries, but rather a way to alter the tasks executed by UEFI at boot—bundled in dormant form on retail devices, left in as a debugging tool by accident. Now apparently available online, it should allow any user to turn off Secure Boot.
Secure Boot works at the firmware level, and is designed only to allow an operating system signed with a key certified by Microsoft to load. It can be disabled on many desktops, but on most other Windows devices, it's hard-coded in. The golden key policy seems to have been designed for internal debugging purposes, to allow OS signature checks to be disabled, apparently so programmers can test new builds. In practice, it could well open up Microsoft's tablets and phones to serious attacks.

why are Pascal graphics cards (GTX 1060 1070 1080) selling at like 20% above their MSRP? is Nvidia having manufacturing problems and cannot keep up with demand?
Why aren't you running Ubuntu Touch in your Lagxus yet? Still suffering the Lagdroid curse? Don't you want convergence?

Memes aside, I'm just interested in peoples opinion about it. I run a dual-boot Win7/Kali, was tired of working in a VM so I bit the bullet and installed. Also opinions on systemd.
kali is great when you're learning, but you should really work on finding the tools you need and then installing the latest versions by hand. some of them will require compiling from github sources and that means manual library dependency installation. you'll figure it out.
There is literally no reason to install Kali. If you want to be le cool haxor then you should run it on a live DVD/USB stick. If you actually want to use Linux as you primary OS or dual boot then install something else.
Currently only have speakers in my monitor to rely on for sound.
Bought these Yamaha NS-AW1s for my surround sound system, but I never use that shit anyway.
Was wondering if you guys have any recommendations for a cheap amplifier so I can use these as bookshelf speakers for my computer.
Also, should I even worry with it or should I just go buy some shitty computer speakers and call it a day?
Just going to mount the amp to the inside of my desk where my legs go so it's easily accessible and out of sight, so it doesn't have to be pretty.
Does that particular amp come with a power adapter? I was reading reviews on Lepai amps earlier and all I could find negative was that they don't include a power supply.

It's like you're asking to be fucked. It's so incredibly easy to just sneak shit into the installer. 1 download and now your computer is on an actual botnet.

Good anons of /g/, can you give me the low down on TV boxes? If I want one to pirate movies and TV shows off the internet, would Kodi and android TV boxes be what I should look for? Or are the big media firms plugging all the loop holes and finding ways to pirate these shows a chore?
Why don't people just use a stick computer these days? I don't understand using a shite box when you can have a computer running your TV.
All right /g/, I've had Intel computers all my life, and while every other component like HDD, RAM or GPU has at least once failed on me, ALL the Intel CPU's are still going strong, why is that? My dad had an AMD computer and the processor literally shit itself after 1 year, but the Intel ones just keep going.
Is Intel that based or am I just lucky, has anyone here ever seen an Intel CPU fail?
Anyone have any tips on why my CPU runs so hot?
Have an Evo 212 Cooler and currently OCed to 4.6GHz. At load it's close to ~85C and when I boost to 4.7GHz it's hitting 100C and throttling.
Seems way too high for what it is
What is /g/s census on technology? Do you cherish power over privacy? Do you believe in freedom to do whatever you want to your computer? Or do you prefer performance and convenience?
Not that much of a /g/ anon but i think you can still have POWER with PRIVACY
But since the big guys got sold out by the goverment(s) now they want to put "power" by using "privacy"

So windows 10 just crashed and when I rebooted my computer one of my hard drives is no longer listed. It was my 3tb drive that I stored my games on. So I guess my hdd killed itself. Is there a way to get it back or at least recover the files?

I changed the RAM speed settings in my UEFI and now I can't get it to boot at all to change them back. I know with BIOS you could remove the CMOS but am I just fucked now?
nah, there's (should be) a clear cmos button on your mobo that should fix it.
Or, if it doesn't have that, then there are two pins that you need to short out with a screwdriver or something like that, in order to reset it.
where does one go to find a decent powerful laptop that isnt ridiculously overpriced, im aware that laptops on average are more expensive than desktops but alot of "gaming" computers are way through the roof too expensive
