If you want help:
>State the budget & currency for your build
>List your uses, e.g. Gaming, Video Editing, VM Work
>For monitors, include purpose (e.g., photoediting, gaming) and graphics card pairing (if applicable)

CPUs:
>G4560/G4600 for non-gaming (light tasks) or bare minimum gaming builds with a dedicated graphics card
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (best with OC + fast RAM)
>i3 8100 - Better budget CPU; extra cost of the currently available Z mobos lessens the value of the CPU
>R5 1600 / i5 8400 - Great gaming or multithreaded use CPUs
>R7 / Used Xeon / Threadripper / i7 - Heavy Multi-Tasking / VM Work / Mixed use

RAM:
>Check your Mobo's QVL before buying RAM or look for user reports

GPUs:

MacBook Pro exploded

>2011 MacBook Pro
>gf's secondary computer

It wasn't touched since last night. Suddenly 10 minutes ago it exploded. Followed by a second explosion.

What the actual fuck is happening?

I don't smell anything and there was no smoke. Is it possible that there is toxic smell-less gas coming out? The fuck do I do?

AlphaGo Zero

No.62997853 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
It's over, humanity is finished.

>AlphaGo Zero, a version without human data and stronger than any previous version.[1] By playing games against itself, AlphaGo Zero surpassed the strength of AlphaGo Lee in three days by winning 100 games to 0, reached the level of AlphaGo Master in 21 days, and exceeded all the old versions in 40 days.[2]

> Demis Hassabis, the co-founder and CEO of DeepMind, said that AlphaGo Zero was so powerful because it was "no longer constrained by the limits of human knowledge".[4] David Silver, one of the first authors of DeepMind's papers published in Nature on AlphaGo, said that it's possible to have generalized AI algorithms by removing the need to learn from humans.[5]
