  1. Deon is being modest: he is a damn good pilot. Can confirm that he is friendly and patient.

      Hit me up with those extra entries! :D

  3. So, Ryzen 5 will be hitting the shelves on April 11th. AMD will be offering two 6 core / 12 thread CPU's and two 4 core / 8 thread CPU's all of which are unlocked. Pricing is as follows: Ryzen 5 1600X -- (6 core / 12 thread) // @3.6 to 4.0 GHz -- $249 Ryzen 5 1600 -- (6/12) // @3.2 to 3.6 GHz -- $219 Ryzen 5 1500X -- (4/8) // @3.5 to 3.7 GHz -- $189 Ryzen 5 1400 -- (4/8) // @3.2 to 3.4 GHz -- $169 -------------------------------------------------------------- The lone performance comparison AMD provided was for the 6/12 1600X was multithreaded performance in Cinebench paired against Intel's 4/4 i5-7600k, and it performed "up to 69% better." This is an odd choice given that no one in their right mind is buying i5 chips for multithreaded performance. In any case, if the 1600X uses the same cores as the 1800X (as one would assume it does), then $249 for a 6/12 chip of this quality is hard to beat. All that's left is for AMD to solve the problem that is causing their chips to lag pretty far behind Intel in 1080p gaming performance, especially considering Ryzen 5 (and the eventual Ryzen 3) are marketed towards lighter workstations and 1080p gaming. The 1800X is as at least as good as if not better than Intel's highest end 8/16 i7-6900k in most metrics, so it doesn't make much sense that it lags so far behind in 1080p gaming performance. (It's probably nothing more than an optimization issue. The numbers simply don't make sense.) The sooner they get this sorted out, the better off all of us will be, Intel and AMD fans alike. Competition is good! Source: http://www.techspot.com/news/68519-amd-four-ryzen-5-processors-launching-april.html

  9. "Oh don't give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit No, don't you give me none more of that Old Janx Spirit For my head will fly, my tongue will lie, my eyes will fry and I may die Won't you pour me one more of that sinful Old Janx Spirit."
  10. My client crashes >90% of the time during the first round on Echo Eleven. If I do make it past the first round, I'm definitely frozen by the third. The map is unplayable for me.
  11. Want to Sell

    Lowered prices again.

  13. From Reddit (upvote when you get a chance!): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzqRi7mEUT0&feature=youtu.be This video is a montage from Imperium's first monthly game night on Saturday, October 22nd. The footage highlights our main event on each game night: a custom-designed scenario mission. Let me give you and idea of what went on: This month, up to eight participants were "hired as mercenaries by a wealthy merchant" and given three dynamic assignments from the merchant: (1) rescue the merchant from pirates holding him for ransom at Yela, (2) wipe out the remainder of the pirate gang at Kareah and recover the merchant's stolen goods, and (3) recover any remaining cargo from the site at which the merchant was attacked and one of his cargo ships was destroyed. They are ultimately betrayed by the merchant: he kills the two mercs onboard his ship just as a number of fighters suddenly appear on radar with the intent to eliminate the escort fighters. Five other members participated in the event as OPFOR. They acted as the pirates in scenes 1 and 2, and as the ambush fighters with a singular goal in scene 3: no survivors! (Yes, it was definitely challenging to get everyone on the same server, but it was a success!) Our next game night is on Saturday, November 19th.
