Damn, I could've used that calc very well. But well, Felice asked first, so tough luck I guess ;)

You need a Ti-Presenter to put it on the big screen!
yeah, if someone could use that machine it's utz!! I think felice can be persuaded to let you have it :)

CPU: Core i7-7700K 4,2GHz
Mainboard: ASUS H270M-PLUS
RAM: 16GB RAM 2400MHz
Graphics: PNY GeForce GTX 980Ti OR NVIDIA 900-1G611-2500-000 GeForce GTX Titan X (Pascal) PG611-A00
OS: Windows 10 64bit with latest stable NVidia drivers and June 2010 DX Redist

Still not 100% sure about the new GPUs as they're still held at customs, but we're confident that they will arrive in time.

Just a little nitpicking:

If the Titan X is really the one with the Pascal architecture then that's the NVIDIA TITAN X (and not "Geforce GTX Titan X", because that's the Maxwell architecture from 2015).

Yeah, blame nvidia for the confusing names :)

Ok, thanks :)

Since we don't have the GPUs yet and all we know are the SKU numbers we pulled some info from the 'net for now. We'll update you asap.

actually, the Titan Xp if i'm not mistaken...
No, that's a THIRD one :)

GeForce GTX Titan X (9xx)
NVIDIA TITAN Xp (10xx, but higher bandwidth, etc.)

We created a GPX file for the 5K run to make sure all runners find their way to the beer & schnapps break and back to the E-Werk on Saturday morning: download.

Can you clarify if the nvidia drivers will be "the latest" (whatever that will be on friday) , or a specific version? I just installed version 381.65 on my laptop and it fixes an issue I had, and I would prefer to spend the remaining time more productively than by comparing driver versions...
added on the 2017-04-10 20:14:59 by Seven Seven
I also just updated the driver to 381.65...just to be sure my intro runs on the latest. It does.
Can we settle on this version maybe? I won´t have a computer with me this time, so no chance to fix anything on place! ;) (I don´t think there´ll be a new driver until next weekend anyway, tho!)

Rant: Last time i updated my Driver my Game i was working on didn´t work anymore...until i deinstalled the 3D-Vision-Driver i don´t need anyway, which was buggy as i had to find out via google-search.
This time it kept failing installing the Driver every time, but had deinstalled the working driver already of course...which let Win7 decide to install some generic Driver then. Had to reboot twice and only then magically it installed!
WTF, NVidia, could you stop acting weird already, plzktnxbye? (using GeForce Experience)
fast forward plz!
JSYK: nvidia PG611 is the boadname for the NVIDIA TITAN X (Pascal)

Have to agree with Seven and Hardy, can we get 381.65, previous ones have a few GLSL compiler bugs I would rather not work around :(

If you (yes, that's YOU) have unarchived Amiga demo floppies, and don't have the time/motivation/hardware to archive them yourself, please bring them to Revision if possible. I shall do my best to be of assistance and make sure that any scene rarities/obscurities are made available to the general public.

Ah, proper breakfast
oh, you got the new ones! :D
Splendid News!
Those are real beasts! About two times the power of a regular GTX980 if i´m not mistaken.

Put the old ones as extras to the compo-prizes! ;) Just put a sticker: "used" :)
I could really make use of an upgrade! ;) (hmm, now i need to win a compo somehow...*googles "buy fake-couch-voters"*)
Due to several health problems I'm not able to attend this years Revision. :(
So I will be a sofascener this time and I wish all of you a great easter-weekend.

Gaspode: awww, that sucks :( Take care man!

gaspode noooooooooooooooooo :( Get well soon!
Oh no man, that sucks. You need someone to add a cowbell to a tune so it can get released?

Thanks for the offer. :) But I couldn't work on demoscene-things for months now because of the health problems. So there is absolutely nothing there that could be released. Unless a tune with only a bassdrum and your cowbell can make it through the preselection. :)
