The majority of the American population has advanced beyond the primitive belief in a superior people

Except us, I cite American exceptionalism.

As with advancing towards representative government and away from Ruling Royalty, was not a belief in exceptionalism.

Advancing away from the belief in Superior People. Is also not a belief in exceptionalism.

Just an understanding of the difference between good and evil.

Why is the red period there? Your phrases do not make sense. The subject and I assume the predicate are not linked.

The majority of people in the USA, have correctly dismissed the majority opinion of the Old World.

American exceptionalism, in other words our s**t doesn't stink but yours does.

First remember that a GPU is useless without a PC host whereas a pi is a complete if rather slow computer.
Assuming you have a PC to host the GPU then I would look at the nvidia family not the AMD family as the nvidia offerings appear to perform better and require less effort to get crunching than the AMD offerings at the same price point.
So which group of the nvidia range to look at? Nothing older than 7xx is worth considering as they are now well below the power/performance curve. Of the 7xx only the 750(to) are worth looking at, but they are now at, if not beyond, their production life. Which leaves us with the 9xx and 10xx sets. The 1050 and 1060 are getting good reports for price/performance.
But it really comes down to how much you want to spend in terms of both capital and running (energy).



Been looking at the Palit GeForce 1030 with a drain of 30W and powered by the PCIe Slot.

What do you make of this card and I'm guessing its got to be better than having nothing.

I'd spend $30 more and get https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=gtx1050+video+card&N=-1&isNodeId=1
Edit: The GT 1030 has 384 Cuda cores, the GTX 1050 has twice as many, 768

That sounds like uninformed choice making to me. An informed choice would take into account inequities and equities.

A discrete GPU crunches the most, somthing like a GTX1050 costs ~ $120 to $150.

What are your proposals to ensure that Maniac and Unstable Kim is stopped?

My post had nothing to do with my opinions but your redundant posts. You are clogging the servers with spam.

Maybe some of these "heroes in their own mind" should grab their assault rifles with their bump stocks and go and see their hero Trump to get transport over there and let their actions speak louder than their words. ;-)

Cheers.

Manac Kim is the problem.

Those who state that words my unhinge Kim. As many state. Have , perhaps unintentionally, acknowledged that Mass Murdering and Enslaving Kim is Totally Unstable.

Since Agreements regarding Nuclear Weapons with the Kim Family have always been spit on by them. What to do now?

Allow, as some have championed, Kim to terrorize the World into silence and submission to his will?

A preemptive strike against the now acknowledged unstable Kim who possesses nuclear weapons?

A possible agreement with China. Who is not Pro Kim, but Anti a Pro American Government on their border. To remove Unstable and Maniac Kim from Power?

Perhaps another option?

Some how IIRC I have read this litany many times, quite stale and totally unproductive IMO.

It doesn't seem like a place I would like to visit much less live. Most of his populace knows nothing else. That will change over time, if the orange one would to think in decades not weeks.
