Intel are now killing off any kind of legacy booting, therefore 11th gen upwards breaks legacy booting completely, there will be no legacy BIOS compatible motherboards or graphics cards from any manufacturer, this means FREEDOS or Any other type of Dos WILL NOT work, in turn forcing people to flash modified uefi’s from within windows (at an extremely high risk)
The pc will still boot to setup using CSM (cant see the point in this) however Dos based flashing tools of any sort will never work, the original IBM compatible Bios as we know it has gone forever. Next manufacturers will encode UEFI files with encryption/high level protection in the end making it impossible to do, and will only be possible via windows update.
Intel and AMD made it pointless to overclock, now theyre going to make it impossible to flash custom firmwares, i am beginning to realise that owning a modern PC is going to be a very boring experience in the near future. And then theres the fact that windows10 and 11 are both completely crap (which all modern pc’s are stuck with) until these companies start to cummunicate more with the end users and give them what they want, the humble PC will end up being killed off.
Apple have now made laptops that are on par/faster than desktop systems fitted with RTX 3080’s which means the tables are going to turn around big time, making apple the new mainstream number 1
Im getting sick and tired of all the antics computer companies are coming up with now, theyre on a mission to lock down computers so much until in the end it will be pointless for enthusiasts to even own one. im to the point now that i would rather use an old 2015 macbook air, especially with great emulators like OpenEMU (which is better than anything on windows)
My next computer purchase will be a desktop Mac Pro, then i wont have to deal with all these stupid problems, you think macOS is locked down? yea well ive never had any virus of any kind on any of my macs, plus the OS itself is 10x better than anything microsoft have ever made. Windows has more bugs than those found in Madonnas knickers.
Yes my friends, the modern PC as we know it has turned to shit.
Its a scientific fact, if you introduce something slowly enough you can get away with anything.
