    I have both an Intel HD 4600 GPU (Core i7 4790k CPU), and Radeon R9 285 card in my desktop. Anyways, since the HD is pretty much unused I decided to enable it in UEFI settings for the purpose of running OpenCL stuff on it. Anyways I'm looking for software that can take advantage of OpenCL.

    Smartphone screen size

    I just got a Samsung Galaxy S5 G900V, and I love it. It is about 5.1-inch screen and borders on being a phablet, but still fits nicely in my pocket. It did make me wonder though... what is the limit for the practical screen size on a smartphone? Surely much bigger than this 5.1 inch screen would...

    Intel Core i3

    What is the point of the desktop Intel Core i3? The Intel Pentium is more than enough for mainstream type use, and for other uses I normally see the i5 or i7s used. The PCs at school I go to for example use Core i5 mostly. I rarely even see i3s on desktops.

    Intel HD 4600

    I have one of the Core i7s with integrated graphics (HD 4600). However, it is not being used because I have a Radeon R9 285 dedicated video card installed (for gaming). Is there any way that the HD 4600 could be used for anything? Maybe like OpenCL, etc? Seems wasteful to have it not doing...

    Catalyst Control settings

    I need to reset CCC to default settings without opening CCC. Reason is that I messed up a overclock setting and now CCC when launched causes a green screen. The card I have is Radeon R9 285. Anyways, how can I do that? The PC runs perfectly fine until CCC is launched. Fortunately I managed to...

    Smartphones and cryptography

    I was just thinking... a smartphone would have more sources of entropy for use in PRNGs than desktops and laptops due to having more sensors. For example, my Nexus phone has a barometer and theoretically, noise input from the barometer could be used to generate more secure random numbers. Even...

    Cisco IOS switch?

    Does anyone know what the least expensive (even if used) Cisco IOS switch is? I want to have one for messing around with on a home network. I do have Cisco Packet Tracer, but it would be nice to have a physical IOS device too. Also I should mention that I do not have a serial port on my PC...

    Surface Pro 3: Best performance from tablet Ive ever seen

    I recently got a Surface Pro 3 (512 GB, Core i7) and it is awesome beyond words. First off, I wanted something fairly powerful, but not generate lots of heat as laptops tend to. Also, I wanted something quiet. The Surface covers all of that easily, and the screen is incredible too. Basically I...

    2014 Honda Civic EX

    I ended up deciding to not go with the 2014 Subaru Impreza I originally was looking at due to finding better value in a Civic EX. I have taken it on a few trips so far and got between 34 and 44 mpg. This is what it looks like on the inside. I will get some actual pics of my car at some point...
