    The Food Thread

    Is it me getting older or are the Oreo biscuits we get here getting muuuuch sweeter than before? On occasion I get a pack and eating them is like a syringe injection of sugar and it's almost exhausting to finish a pack.

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    Guys, is the Radeaon RX 580 sufficient to drive a worst case of 4 4k monitors, considering there's no gaming involved? It seems to have 5 display outs - with 2xDP + 2xHDMI. I'm beginning to wonder why a 38k-45k gfx card is needed for this setup, if a good 18k one can do the job *without...

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    I picked the BenQ primarily for the IPS panel and the feedback on the excellent viewing angles. I was primarily looking at the LG you mentioned, but saw discussion about how the contrast shifted depending on the viewing angle - especially considering there is so much screen real estate to...

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    I knowwww :( I'm a bit torn. I do really need to get something now for some critical work. Whoa! I didn't realize. Damn, I should hold off a week or so then... sigh. I was gonna order the monitors first now, but now have to wonder. Thanks for this info. I think most of the time, I should be...

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    Thanks! Appreciate the insights. That's a good line of thought. I had basically settled on a 3900X and then forget about it for 5 years (which I think is still kinda okay), but I'll think about your suggestion. The steel legend is without wifi right, at that price? Gonna check out the Asus...

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    Thanks. I actually did settle on a 5700XT in the end. Just looking for decent options locally. Shortlisted Gigabyte, MSI Mech OC, PowerColor Red Devil and Sapphire Pulse - getting quotes for these. The one you listed is only on Newegg, right? That would involve chunky customs?

    Thanks, but as I said above, I'm not looking to do ML stuff.

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    1. What would be a good UPS for this build + 1 or 2 monitors. (Assuming additional monitors don't need to be connected to UPS). 2. The x570 steel legend at this price is the non-wifi one, it seems? Are there alternate x570s that are recommended? I see possibilities in the 'Asrock Taichi' variant...

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    Thanks for the suggestion. This was helpful. Someone else suggested 5700 XT for the GPU. How do the two options compare for my usage? Also, does 3200mhz vs 3600mhz RAM make any difference for my use? (Read about it - no practical difference)

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    Would I really need a threadripper? :oops: I'm also not running any ML stuff. To clarify the querying thing - it's just querying over relational DBs, and maybe some search indexes - ES/solr.

    Budget 90k+ Need a build for heavy multitasking that can drive up to four 4k monitors for work only

    What is your budget? Flexible. 1.5L+ without monitors. Of course I want to avoid unnecessary spending, but I see this as an investment in my work and hope it will last many years. What is your existing hardware configuration (component name - component brand and model) I have nothing :(...

    Myntra to bring back Desktop site after Failed attempts

    Myntra have become a case study now. Ballsy move it was, though I didn't agree with it. Someone had to go the whole distance and try this experiment out - now it's done.

    Other Where's the Mi Pad 2 and the N1?

    I'm in the same boat :/ Postponed tablet purchase for too long. I just want a good large non-ipad tablet within 25k :( I guess I just have to make the dive and get the Mi Pad 1...

    Budget 71-90K [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    I get this hardware info when I query my system: Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) Maybe you can dig a bit to see if that supports ac. I assume that the required support is for standard IEEE 802.11ac? I did a cursory attempt at checking for...

    Budget 71-90K [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    The laptop is great so far. Use it for 6+ hours every day. I love the display (though I'm no expert). I use it for programming with a dark background and my code looks vivid and gorgeous over the dark BG :D. Very good viewing angles as well. Plus screen is FHD, which was critical for me. For...

    TinyOwl’s hostage crisis

    You bet. I spent a couple months helping my company hire developers. We looked at a hiring marketplace and it's crazy what these funded companies have done. Sub-standard candidates with 1-2 years of experience were asking for (and being paid) 17L-20L+ easily. A couple of them had skill-levels...

    Anyone from IT startUp ecosystem ?

    I just left after a 4-year stint at a startup. It's hectic, but I feel like I wouldn't have traded it for anything else. There are pluses and there are minuses, as with everything.
