I have an Nvidia 285 GTX not the most hungry card but still it was top of the nvidia line at one point. at idle it draws 1.05 volts. on tranquility it draws 1.15 volts. on duality(CQ test server) it draws 1.15 volts. it was a whole one degree hotter in station on duality vs tranquility. 85 vs 84
Watts, Jesus Christ, Watts and even then your figures are way way off.
Ehm… you know that those are perfectly normal voltages for that kind of graphics card, right? And that adjusting the voltage is a pretty standard thing to do to if you want to squeeze a bit more out of your card (or CPU for that matter)?

…granted, seeing those kinds of voltage fluctuations based on the software that's running is kind of worrisome.

Weeeeee!!! Scotty! I need more power!!

An interesting take on the "Internet Spaceships are serious business" line of Anti-Incarna thread. In the end it makes no sense for them to continue to support 2 interfaces for the same tasks. Down the road that's 2 code branches to keep updated and bughunt on and frankly they just may not work that well together.

I don't know if "don't do anything" really counts as a code branch…

It doesnt affect me, but i dont see the reason to force those new hardware requirements on everyone just because of the new isolation cell feature that does nothing for 90% of eves playerbase and gets boring after 1 week.

When they add new ships that isn't optional, they can shoot you, I am happy to have people in space and NON optional, it is a game that is growing. I think lacking avatars is the greatest weakness of eve.

When they add new ships, they aren't automatically loaded and displayed if there's no need to load it: unless you actually come across one.

Why should this environment be loaded and displayed when it's not needed?

Its going to be required because its beta testing the Twilight game.

While I do believe CCP intended for it to be optional back in 2008... back then it was designed from the ground up to be part of EVE online. Now, EVE Online only exists to feed/test the uninspired mess that is WoD.


^^

So very sad, but so very true.

edit: oh apart for it being developed for Eve..... Incarnia never really had anything to do with Eve.

These claims bug me. Why would anyone with half a mind go through the effort of trying to combine the functions of Incarna with Eve when the purposes of testing an engine for avatars for a separate game based entirely on avatar gameplay? In the time wasted trying to make Eve and incarna work together they could have internally done all the alpha test they needed for WOD's engine separately. Even if it wasn't meant to be in Eve, Incarna still seems like dumb way to develop/test WOD.

Honest question, what an I missing?

very funny...

I guess you have never tried to run Minecraft on older hardware - my 2006 MacBook is still good enough to change skills, chat, do some market work or autopilot around (as long as station environment is disabled, all effects are at min, resolution is 1024x768 and you are zoomed all the way out in space); I get maybe 5 fps in Minecraft on that machine.

(that laptop did run EVE really well in classic mode btw Crying or Very sad)

ITT: Lots of *****ing and moaning from people who own piece of **** comps they should have thrown out years ago

Get with the times, it's not like a decent comp is even expensive these days.
If you want to play an MMO on your 2003 spec computer, WoW is that way --->



Anyone else feel the deja vu? It's the trinity whine allll over again...
