Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Intel wants you to pay to unlock your processor's true capabilities.

    ... And then we switch to a higher octane and oh look car thread.

    You could be running methanol which is the equivalent of, oh, let's say about 120 octane, and if you lean the mixtures out too much (fun fact, methanol is stoichiometric at 6.42:1, at least twice as rich as gasoline which burns perfectly at 14.7:1), you'll still pre-ignite and burn holes through your nice expensive hypereutectic pistons.

    I think everyone here understands that there's a limit. Nobodies saying "lol lean out to 0:1 infinity mpg".

    You'd be surprised how many people don't know the first thing about the internal combustion engine. I don't want people getting the wrong idea.

    Leaning fuel mixture = more horsepower is definitely the wrong idea.

    I prefer diesel processors.

    The gigahertz might not be as high, but they can carry out instructions more efficiently!

    Diesels have a higher instruction per clock ratio.

    Diesel engines work by - in the words of my Physics textbook - Spontaneous Combustion.

    That's basically all I need to know about them to know that they're awesome.
