A friend of mine recently bought a 2015 macbook pro (running OSX), the i5 variant. Just for fun we ran a quick python script on his macbook pro and my 5/6 year old thinkpad x201t (running Ubuntu) to see who completed the task faster.

>Generate a random, 10 million integer long list
>Each integer had value between 0 and 10 million
>Sort the list into ascending order

My thinkpad is running a dual core (with hyperthreading) i7 @ 2.00 ghz. His macbook pro is running a dual core i5 @ 2.7 ghz (iirc).

>Macbook pro took ~21 seconds to complete the task
>Thinkpad took ~17 seconds

Some things to note: Linux designated the task to a single core, which was 100% utilised. OSX showed that two cores were each 50% utilised. Now, this is a singly threaded task so I'm assuming that OSX was switching between the two cores and not using two threads to complete the task faster.

Despite the overhead required to switch between the two cores I'm shocked that with ~35% higher clock speed a single core still took ~25% longer.

This isn't a jab at Macs, I assume it's a similar affair with any ultrabook of a similar price. I'm just amazed that after 6 years the raw processing power in 'high-end' laptops doesn't seem to have increased at all. (Yes I'm aware there are power consumption improvements and other improvements).

Old thread: >>48140565

Not sure what private trackers are all about?

Check out the wiki and update it yourself you want to add more instead of complaining like a fucking faggot. https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php/Private_trackers

How to get into private trackers (and survive): http://pastebin.com/ecGRiQhk

What.CD Interview Notes: http://pastebin.com/dWBU7ZXs
https://www.whatinterviewprep.com/

Use https://boards.4chan.org/g/#s=ptg as a link to find the /ptg/ thread

Remember the following:
>staff read these generals and have posted here before.
>staff pretend to be normal users asking for invites and when you invite them, they ban you for inviting strangers
>people report emails and other personal info posted here to staff to get you banned.
>most of the invite offers here are people trolling you with false hope

Don't be a faggot. Join officially instead of begging. Almost nobody gets invited to trackers via /ptg/. We're mostly about private tracker bros helping each other out with requests, sharing information from other trackers, adding bounty, etc

My brother's old Dell 2305's motherboard likely died, and now it's been out of action for about a month and a half. My father and I are trying to figure out how to build a gaming rig for him capable of running World of Tanks and the like at a reasonable (30-40 fps at medium settings) speed, for as cheap as possible. We know we can pull the 6 GB of 1333 MHz RAM and the 500 GB hard drive out of the old computer to recycle it and keep costs down, but Dad also wants to see if he can recycle the processor, an AMD AthlonTM II X4 610e from 2010. Should I suggest the "Minimum" fit from Logical Instruments with the G3220 as the CPU, or should I try to recycle the processor and figure out a different mobo?

Can anyone point me in the direction on learning to program/hack

>> No.48166167

It depends on what you want to do.
If you want to do web development, you should probably look at HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and later Ruby, Python, PHP, or some other language for server-side web development.
If you're interested in web scraping stuff, Python is popular, but I'm sure there are other good languages and toolkits out there.
If you're interested in data analysis, there are a handful of mathy/stats languages, including R, Matlab, and some others.
If you want to make something high-performance, there are tons of lower level languages (C and its derivatives, Java, etc).
There are some weird but cool languages that have their own niche uses (haskell, prolog, erlang, etc) if you're into that.

Why not go to nearest university/college that offer bootcamp/seminars/tutorials for CCNA? It's about 3-5months and some of them give discounts for the test.

Then you have enough to buy a decent TV. You should look for Sony and Panasonic TVs in that size and price range on review sites. I'm not going to spoon feed because that wouldn't teach you anything about buying TVs. Look at CNET's TV reviews too. TV Reviews are one thing they can do pretty well.

trend setter. it's pernicious but knowing about it means that when a power factory goes all screwy we immediately suspect malware, which isn't how stuxnet's designers *wanted* it to operate.

The assumed goal of stuxnet was weak. I mean, if I was going to construct a cyber warfare weapon I would want it to completely disable a country's nuclear capabilities.
