Why is there such a cost difference between GPUs and CPUs? Which lasts longer? Background info included.
I am going to use the Fallout 4 requirements as an example. Please just hear me out, I just want to understand.
If I put in my current CPU and GPU and RAM, my CPU is way way under what I need to run on high, as you can see here And then, If I put in a brand new CPU that is generations ahead of my current CPU, you can see that it is just over what I need to run the game on high here However, it says that that brand new CPU is now the closest thing to being a bottleneck for me, and to click on the button and it will recommend a new cpu that is a lot better, as you can see here And now, that newly recommended CPU is thousands of dollars….so my question is this…why is it that the CPU that I have currently, a 1st generation i7 is only seemingly marginally outperformed by a 5th generation i7, and yet still there is an even better one that barely outperforms my GPU but it is thousands of dollars?
How long do CPUs generally last someone? Does GPU technology progresses a lot faster than CPU technology? Is this why I will pay so much for a CPU – because it will last me a lot longer than a GPU will, technologically?
It just doesn't make sense to me to but a new CPU, only to have it be the next thing I replace on my system..however on the other hand I don't have thousands of dollars to spend on a really good one. So what gives? Thank you!
TIL that on an island in Indonesia, if a child dies before he has started teething, the baby is placed inside the trunk of a growing tree. The hole is then sealed and as the tree begins to heal, the child is believed to be absorbed. Dozens of babies may be interred within a single tree.
“Saw” is the past tense form of “see” and can be used by itself without a helper verb.
Examples: "I saw a movie yesterday." "We saw you at the park last week."
“Seen” is the past participle of “see.” Past participles cannot be used on their own in a sentence and require a helper verb, such as “has” “have” “had" "were" or "was." It's never correct to use "seen" without a helper verb.
Examples: "I've seen that movie before." "You were seen at the park last week."
Sentences like "I seen a man walking down the street" and "I seen that dog yesterday" are incorrect and should both use the verb "saw" instead.
What is the total cost of the New York subway system, adjusted for inflation?
Been googling and reading about this all morning, with no success. The initial construction was done by private companies but that should surely be a matter of public record once the companies merged and eventually became part of MTA, right?
A path of reasoning submitted by one side that if accepted by both sides removes credibility or viable usage of a near mirror image of the same argument used by that side.
For example, in the guns debate, the pro-gun side says "guns don't kill people, people kill people." But what happens when someone with a gun saves the day and becomes a hero? Can't the other side say,"Whoa whoa whoa! If guns don't kill people then they also don't save people, people save people and by your logic they would have done that with or without a gun. And! by accepting that the gun made it possible or at least significantly more possible to save the day, you are also saying the same for the benefits and advantages the gun gave the perpetrator."
