yeah and when companies finally learn that "financial growth" isn't infinite... but sadly, the world economy is hard reset right now, so we're still not gonna learn that lesson and think that "covid" has fucked us up so bad, when really it was the problem with financial growth all along.
@genericname85 Yeah, kinda that. Besides smartphones aren't getting any significant upgrades for like every 3 years intervals. They'll put in new technologies and that's it. Then re-release the same model (but with minor changes, so that it looks different) every year. 2015 it was 4G and Bluetooth 4.2, 2020 it's 5G and Bluetooth 5.2.I avoid planned obsolescence whenever possible.
yeah you can probably survive only having a new phone every 5 years, cause really what are the "new features" you "really need"? xD Luckily technological progress is slowing down to a grinding halt. you see that in pc hardware. you can basically use a 10 year old CPU these days and still play every game you want with it. it's probably just a matter of time till all the hardware and even phones reach that point.
@genericname85 I have my CPU from 10 years ago but my "new" CPU from 5 years ago outperforms it in every way - both QUAD cores. The older one is AMD, the "newer" one is intel.So I wouldn't say that. I do however keep my money to myself for things I actually need. Being a low class doesn't even come with these options as often as the middle class, who own an iPhone.
i have an old i5 and there's not a bottleneck yet. and thanks to overclocking, i litterally have the clock speeds of cpus that come out today, so i litterally have the same performance.
of course not "high end" performance but for nothing i do with my computer i need "high end cpu". just the gpu needs to be a bit newer.
@genericname85 For me my needs are met. I don't drop below 60 FPS. I average on 100 FPS on most games I play.a 5 year old i7 6700K and a GTX 1080 Ti are still kickass these days. I don't see a need to upgrade anytime soon.My phone is also almost 4 years old and although support was officially completely dropped some time ago, it still performs most functions I want it to. I don't see a huge need to buy a new one. Besides the new phones these days are shite anyway.
when i bought the monitor i have now, my choices were 4k or 120hz. there was no 4k 120hz at that time. so i went for 4k. xD so all i need is 60 fps anyway.
@genericname85 I got 144Hz and 1440p :)FPS games look super fluid! 120 FPS becomes the new 60 FPS!
Which one? The ones that are from the 2000s, or the newer ones?
i'm not sure i think the old ones
HaHaHa : )
