  Navy pilot recalls encounter with UFO

Navy pilot recalls encounter with UFO

Retired Cmdr. David Fravor spent 18 years as a Navy pilot, but nothing prepared him for what he witnessed during a routine training mission on Nov. 14, 2004.

"I can tell you, I think it was not from this world," Fravor told ABC News. "I'm not crazy, haven't been drinking. It was — after 18 years of flying, I've seen pretty much about everything that I can see in that realm, and this was nothing close."

Fravor's stunning retelling of his encounter off the California coast with what appeared to be a 40-foot-long wingless object that flew at incredible speeds in an erratic pattern comes as U.S. Military admits existence of program to investigate sightings of UFO's.
The program was shut down in 2012 because of other budget priorities, according to the Pentagon.
"I have never seen anything in my life, in my history of flying that has the performance, the acceleration — keep in mind this thing had no wings," Fravor said.
He recalled flying his F/A-18 fighter on a training mission on a beautiful Southern California day 13 years ago when things started to get strange.
Controllers on one of the Navy ships on the water below reported objects that were dropping out of the sky from 80,000 feet and going "straight back up," Fravor said.

  Intel Inside Program Suffers Budget Cut
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 12-14-2017, 05:31 AM - Forum: General Hardware - No Replies


Quote:"We're hearing that major cuts are coming throughout Intel's marketing and channel programs," a top executive for a major Intel partner who has been informed of the cuts told CRN. "The marketing funds have been moved to other groups within Intel that aren't channel-specific or PC-centric. The funds will now go towards driving the business in data center, giving more to the data side of the house instead of compute. A lot of dollars are moving to other areas or kept in house to improve Intel's profit and margins." Whether Intel needs this added funding to be added to its bottom line, however, is always a matter up to debate.

  Titan V Async Performance
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 12-14-2017, 04:36 AM - Forum: Video - No Replies


Quote:Given that overclocks in D3D11 applications produce performance uplift of ~20% (in some instances), it would appear that the high core count becomes more of a burden than a benefit. The GPU needs the faster clocks, and can’t access or leverage its high core count in a meaningful way. The result is that the Titan V begins to tie with the Titan Xp, and that the 1080 Ti closes-in on the Titan V. In lower-level API games, however, the Titan V pulls away by large margins – 27% to 40%, in some cases. The gains are big enough that we retested numerous times on numerous cards, but they remained. Our present analysis is that these applications are better able to spin-off multiple, simultaneous, in-flight render jobs across the high core count, whereas the tested Dx11 titles may function more synchronously.

As for the Titan V specifically, it can certainly be used for games -- but only in the context of, "I bought this thing for work, and sometimes I play games." If you're just gaming, clearly, this isn't the right purchase. Even for those users who have non-scientific uses for their scientific cards, the Titan V does appear to have some frame pacing problems that need to be worked out. We are not yet informed enough on the Volta architecture to root-cause these behaviors, and would suggest that it's either drivers or related specifically to the Titan V.

That’s what we think right now, anyway, and that may change. This is still early in Volta.

A long story of AMD's early access treatment of both the Vega Frontier Edition and neglect of LTT's concerns. Shoddy promotional material, BSODs, and more.

  HBM3 And DDR5
Posted by: SteelCrysis - 12-12-2017, 04:42 AM - Forum: General Hardware - No Replies


  • HBM3 should come in 2019 at the earliest
  • HBM2 has had issues with yield, which could get worse with HBM3 due to greater complexity
  • DDR5 should come in 2020
