Gaming: F1 2018

Aside from keeping up-to-date on the Formula One world, F1 2017 added HDR support, which F1 2018 has maintained; otherwise, we should see any newer versions of Codemasters' EGO engine find its way into F1. Graphically demanding in its own right, F1 2018 keeps a useful racing-type graphics workload in our benchmarks.

We use the in-game benchmark, set to run on the Montreal track in the wet, driving as Lewis Hamilton from last place on the grid. Data is taken over a one-lap race.

    Go look at the Adobe CC forums and see what machines are people running, especially for Premiere and After Effects. They're all these kinds of beefy machines, HEDT from Intel and AMD. Likewise look at what people are using for DaVinci Resolve. Just because you don't work in the professions that require it, doesn't mean that it isn't a major use case. Reply

    You are not a professional then (and if you are a professional they made a bad hire), because unless your job requires to walk around while typing a laptop is absolutely useless for the professional world. A desktop will get work done significantly faster with no drawbacks. You're sitting in a chair all day, not out camping. Reply

    If you are so immature and clueless as to not recognize that most professionals - like anyone in sales or management or 90% of other professions have no need for more compute than a 15 watt core i5 delivers you should certainly not call others unprofessional. Reply

    It's about bragging or walking around with a puffed up chest. For some people, self-promotion through the ownership of overpriced, unnecessary computer hardware is an important element of filling up otherwise empty, meaningless lives. Reply

    It's weird, because you're doing that too, only inverted. Your entire argument seems to be that because it's good enough for you and your colleagues it should be good enough or everyone. Reply

    Attack as a means of defense. You're implying I've listed a set of specifications that meet everyone's requirements in order to attempt to defeat an argument that contained no such implication because you can't find another way to discredit it. Reply

    You look ridiculous trying to get out of admitting that you lost the argument. Interesting mental gymnastics though. Reply

    That's funny, because it seems the only one doing that is you! I sense an insecurity coming from you over the fact that you use a tiny laptop. Unless your job requires you to walk around and type at the same time, there is precisely zero reason for any professional to sacrifice power and productivity for useless mobility. You're going to be in the same room all day at work.

    Setting conditions for what justifies or doesn't justify a mobile computer versus a desktop is just an attempt to create "rules" for the silly Calvinball-style game you're attempting to play. "Oh, you can ONLY use X if condition Y exists, so nyah nyah! I win you big meanie!" I know that typing when you're offended tends to limit the ability to think sensibly, but at least pause for a moment or two before you let your emotions get the better of you. Reply
