In Topic: Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to Steam

Hi mom!

I am extremely hyped for this. Halo 1 on the PowerMac G5 was all I played back in the day. CTF on Blood Gulch on the 1EV server. Literally played every day for a few hours. I am also looking forward to being able to play coop with my dad and brothers. We all played coop Halo back in the day and it'll be nice to be able to do that again.

Yeah, I considered that, but I just find it too stupid having to resort to such meassures just to get storage space. And I dread having to use Symlinks all over the place to be able to have my apps on the system!

There is no need for symlinks. You are booting directly off of the external SSD and it would be your primary drive. The only annoyance is that you have to have an external drive plugged in.

The internal 5400rpm HDD would just show up as a 2nd drive and I would probably just use it for time machine backups or media storage.

I know it isn't a great solution, but you can just plug in an external USB 3.0/TB3  SSD and boot off of that. Adds clutter but massively cuts down on the drive upgrade cost.

Sounds like your windows install got corrupted somehow. You could try repairing it with a windows bootable USB, but I would be careful when doing a startup repair that you don't ruin your macOS startup disk as well.

In Topic: Apple CPUs to Replace Intel in Macs?

01 August 2018 - 06:05 PM

Intel's 10nm Cannon Lake process has been an absolute disaster for them. They were originally planning to release their 10nm chips in 2016. Now they are saying "Holiday 2019" for the new chips, which likely means Q1 2020 in reality. Because of this massive delay their huge performance lead on AMD has essentially vanished.

AMD is actually matching Intel in performance per watt with their new Ryzen 2000 chips and AMD has their 7nm chips (made by TSMC) planned for both CPUs and GPUs in 2019. TSMC's 7nm process is already operational by all reports (newest iPhone chip will be using it this fall most likely) and if that is the case Intel will have to release their 10nm architecture or AMD will gain a significant advantage in performance per watt.
