Yeah, I think battery life is mostly it. Projection onto a clear surface in a well lit room....that's prob going to require some serious juice (relatively speaking). Definitely more than a smartphone...

Microsoft HoloLens holographic computing, holograms, augmented reality

I've heard them say the same, but yeah, they are misunderstanding it. When Paul heard about one OS, he interpreted it meaning win 10 would be monolothic, exactly the same OS everywhere, just...

Yeah, it's somewhat semantic anyway. All I mean to say is that it's not a different version in the same sense that it used to be, where they're forks and on completely different tracks. So it's not...

From the way theyve been describing it, it's not so much two separate versions of windows anymore, but a common core across all devices and then specific functionality built on that. So each version...

Oh is that still bay trail? I figured everything coming out from them by now would be cherry trail. I thought CT wasnt much more than a die shrink of BT, CPU performance about the same, but way...

That's basically what's in the Intel compute stick. Plus their HPU or whatever, I'm guessing some kind of FPGA. It would be nice if it was modular but it doesn't sound like any of the components are...

Well, I can tell you for sure the 970 can output up to 7.1 over HDMI. You shouldn't need to involve any optical cables or the onboard sound, the GPU itself is the sound card. When connected the TV or...

Heh, I'm just imagining the look on my wife's face when I tell her that she needs to use an app to get my attention when I'm in the same room as her. :p

To start with I think they really need a...

That presumes you know for a fact that you can go 45 mins uninterrupted though. Like I can't overstate how dead you are to the outside world. You can't hear your phone, you can't hear someone yelling...

I doubt anyone with a desktop gaming PC would use it, it's mostly intended for laptops and tablets. One of those cheap Intel compute sticks or probably even a raspberry Pi could handle this, so it...

That should run directly through the PC. I don't think PC voice chat is in there yet but eventually anything you can do on an xbox you should be able to do on PC.

HTPC Gaming case options

Yeah, your requirements are completely at odds with each other. You want it quiet and slim, but you want to stuff a lot of components in there, and passive too? It just can't be done.

Yeah, if anything NVLink is just a better SLI bridge. It's not relevant outside of that.

Ya, GoW got me back into console gaming too. Mostly it was Xbox live and the ease of getting in a party with friends, it was a million years ahead of PC in that regard.

I still notice games loading significantly faster on a SSD vs my 3x RAID0 3TB drives. Both can sequentially read at 600mb/s, but the access time on the SSD is still way ahead and RAID actually makes...
