The Xbox One X, Teraflops, and the GTX 1070

With the Xbox One X (Scorpio) on the horizon I've heard a lot of talk about teraflops and how the One X will perform the same as a 1070 because they are close in terms of teraflops. I'm going to try and shed some light on the subject.
First off, what is a teraflop? Well, it's a measure of floating point operations per second. Or in layman's terms "how fast a GPU can do math." So that means higher numbers are better, right? The higher the number the faster the device can add, subtract and multiply numbers.
Well not exactly. Teraflops are really only a good measurement of performance if you're only running complex math and doing nothing else (think bitcoin mining or physics simulations).
For example: The rx 480 has 5.8 Tflops and is a pretty capable GPU. However, the 980Ti only has 5.6 Tflops. Now wait a second. The 980Ti wrecks the 480 in any gaming benchmark. How come a GPU with a lower Teraflop rating can outperform one with a higher rating?
To quote EuroGamer:
Teraflops are a very basic measure of computational power, separate and distinct from all other aspects of GPU design.
Teraflops really have very little to do with gaming performance, because there are lots of other things that impact gaming performance (vRAM bandwidth, cache, etc).
In short, the Xbox One X probably won't perform on the same level as a 1070. The One X has 6 Tflops, but seeing how the 480/580 (which is very similar to the One X's GPU) stacks up against the 1070 we can't reasonably expect the One X to do much better.
*Edit: Of course the Xbox isn't out yet, so have really have no idea on how it performs until it gets in the hands of Digital Foundry (or similar channel) who has the ability to analyze it's performance in. And just to touch on Forza, the only it was running at 1080p60 on the OG One was with the dynamic resolution and settings. I suspect that will be implemented on the One X with Forza 7.

Nembutal Pharmacy and King Express Delivery FAKE- BIG BIG SCAM- WATCH OUT!

King Express Delivery is based in Ukraine but all the payments I made, whether sent by MoneyGram or directly by wire transfer, were to people in Poland. Also, the person I sent the money to for Nembutal is also one of the people that I was told to send the money to in King Express Delivery.

THE SHORT VERSION
Here is a summary of what happened. If you wish for more detail and copies of the emails that were sent to me, scroll down and have a look.
Basically, I ordered from Nembutal pharmacy which gave me a tracking number for King Express Delivery. Then King Express Delivery keeps emailing me telling me I had to have some sort of documentation to allow the parcel to go through. They started with a 300$ Import Drug License, a 500$ Phytosanitary License, A 600$ DEA sticker + 150$ Customs Clearance, and finally a 980$ FDA license. So they worked me upwards.
For the DEA sticker and FDA license, they said if I didn't have these then the parcel would be opened and examined and I would be called in to the drug office at the airport for questioning. Nembutal is illegal in my country (I didn't know this at the time of making the purchase), so this is the last thing I wanted to happen.
I made all the payments, but then they come up my ass about a final check before delivery and tell me my parcel has been opened and sent to a lab for testing. I shat myself.
After this, they sent a very long email telling me that the cops were going to come to my house very soon to look for more information, but that if I paid 3000 Euros, they could sort the issue out and nothing bad would happen and I would get my sealed parcel finally. That's when my friend sent me this:

https://www.trustpilot.com/review/ghgenotropinpfizer.com

And we figured it was a scam.

THE LONG VERSION
I ordered an item from Nembutal Pharmacy (https://nembutalpharmacy.com) to treat my insomnia. I didn't know it was illegal in my country Lebanon, but when I found that out the parcel had already gone. I have had insomnia since I was 16 and the typical methods and medications didn't work. Nembutal Pharmacy then sends me a tracking number for the company King Express Delivery (https://kingexpressdelivery.com/) . Tracking took place to Romania, Bulgaria, then at Turkey, the shipping company emails me and tells me to send them a copy of an IMPORT DRUG LICENSE and that if I didn't have one, I could pay some fees (300 USD) to get an IMPORT DRUG LICENSE.
Ok, great! Now?

At the Lebanese airport, the shipping company King Express Delivery asked for

Phytosanitary license (500 USD)

I didn't think much about it. I just thought it was standard procedure, so I went ahead and made the payment.

After this, they come onto my ass with the need for a DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) sticker or else the custom's agent would open the parcel and that's absolutely the last thing I wanted because Nembutal is illegal in Lebanon.

DEA sticker 600 USD + 150 USD customs clearance = 750 USD

For the DEA Sticker, they had this to say:

"The customs is insisting to open the parcel before it could be cleared due to the lack of the DEA License sticker which is a very serious sticker then the DEA sticker is the evidence that any parcel arrived from aboard into the Lebanon territory has been verified and approved by customs authorities.
Our services couldn't approve the opening of the parcel by the customs, then this could lead to a customer's compensation in case of any damages occasioned during the opening of the parcel. You shall need to pay for an express DEA sticker which cost $600 USD (then you parcel is classified on category B which is medicinal drug Highly controlled) and $150 USD to CLEAR CUSTOMS, both are $750 USD, so that we could send it to the Custom office for confirmation and releasing of the parcel for an immediate delivery on April 05th before 6:00 PM as on the delivery schedule."

After this, I made the payment, and I thought "ok great," but they come out with another requirement.

FDA License (980 USD)

Either I pay 980USD for an FDA (Food and Drug Administration) license or the custom's agents are going to confiscate the parcel, open it, examine it, then I'd have to go to the drug office in the airport and answer some questions. That freaked me out.
The previous payments broke me, so I had to get 980USD from friends of mine. King Express Delivery had this this to say:

"Dear client,
the DEA sticker has been completed, we are now fighting at the customs since 2 days beacuse of Customs clearance on your parcel. Your parcel is blocked by the customs (LCA) that refuse to clear your parcel without FDA license. The LCA (local customs agent) request the FDA sticker before the parcel can be cleared. According to the Lebanon Law Customs agents hae the right to request any additional document on parcel due to terrorism and drugs deal signaled on the the Middle - East.
Due to the lack of the FDA sticker, your parcel shall follow a process with presence of an Lebanon FDA agent. The LCA will deposit your parcel to the Drugs enforcement division at the Rafic Hariri international airport and the parcel shall been examinated by an FDA expert that will approve approve if the parcel's contains is authentic and approved or can be approved by the FDA. Once your parcel is transfered to the drug enforcement division, you will be summoned to the drugs enforcement office at the airport and after questioning and hearing your package will be delivered without any other question, the process is very fast.
To avoid the following process you can pay for the FDA license so that we can complete it fast, clear the parcel and deliver it to your address on April 09th or April 10th depending of how fast is the process.
The FDA license is valid for 24 months and is delivered for personal use and can't be used for a trader or business"

All clear right?

WRONG

Next they wrote this to comfort me I guess. See how believable it is:

"Our agent has completed the FDA as the last document requested by Lebanon Customs. we really appreciate your cooperation and your prompt response. Despite the complications encountered one after another. Our agent in Beyrouth reported to us (from reliable customs source) the excessive control or the reinforcement of the controls exercised by the customs agents. This is due to the recent massive seizure of a large amount of illicit goods of all kind coming around the world to Lebanon which caused a mass search and mass arrest of many Lebanese and led to life imprisonment for some of them. This is why control has been greatly increased at all airports, ports and stations connecting the Lebanon to other countries.
You will be informed soon by the delivery agent after the last check of Lca (local customs authorities) as usual which autotirizes the recovery and the load in the vehicles of delivery.
Delivery charges are free."

THEN another scary email

"Dear Hani Haidar,
we apologize again for the delay and promise to improve the qualities of our services to avoid such situation in the future. Your parcel was supposed to have left for delivery by now but the Final Routine Obligatory Customs Check (FROCC) which is controlled out by the Local Customs Authorities (LCA) before parcels are loaded into local delivery Vans(Vehicles) has been performed. During the Manuel control registered on the date of today, 10/04/2019, 10:38', the LCA found out a suspicious content: a brown vial labeled ''Harmful poison with notice''. The parcel has just been immediately removed and sent to the main customs office and will be send for a fast expertise to the laboratory.
There was nothing required to do until the expertise result. We are really worrying that the situation at this level. we are very sorry for the difficulties encountered and we could compensate the delay or any damage on the parcel once it come out from expertize."

THEN the scariest email of them all:

"Dear Hani Haidar,
According to legit sources, you could be summoned in the coming days if nothing is done. an inspection at your home could be organized by the anti-drugs laws enforcements to search for more information or to question your entourage, so becareful.
We have been indexed in this case as an accomplice and our agent on duty in Beyrouth has just been suspended with immediate application of the law, our vehicles are forbidden to work or circulate. we will be obliged to reveal your complete identity as the main concern if nothing is done. the case is still at the level of the customs officers and we demand to act before it is late.
If nothing is done, we will have to reveal your complete identity. the case is still at the primary level with the customs authorities and we require action before it is too late. A bargaining agreement is going on now and there is no time to waste or will be late. this must be sorted out fastly!
we innocently and naively carried products and have been helping to to sort licenses without any idea of what was really going on.
the parcel was falsely labeled an we are now trapped. you will be informed very soon about what to do, be connected and ready to react. In case you will delay or do not cooperate,
It is still at the primary level and if this most be reported to the Lebanon Government or law then it would cost you big loose and money (+ 30,000 Euros) and imprisonment but, we are out to safeguard our clients and we are always ready to cooperate to sort situation or issue out. We will not allow this to become noisely if we stand together to work this out.
we are waiting urgently to you mail once you read this mail."

And Finally, Blackmail 101:

"Dear Hani Haidar,
Things are updating to the worst but there is an eventual agreement to sort this issue without noise and quickly since It is still at the primary level. If this is reported to the main customs adminstration it would become noisely and you could face big charges and it would cost a big loose and a lot of money and imprisonment.
we have agreed to complete this as fast as possible. we have 48 hours to complete this and close this case forever. You need to complete a sum of 3000 EUROS so that all can be put to an end at this level and your parcel sealed and taken to your address. Please we said it and we repeat that we are out to safeguard our clients so we are ready to help you out if you agree with this , if not then we shall allow them to go ahead and take the case to the head office. Please get back to us as soon as possible then the delay is not favor and we could still extract the parcel from with the LCA and pick up you parcel for delivery.
you need to do this as fast as you get this informations and send us the receipt. we will take care of the rest, This is very urgent and we require high discretion and give you option to pay by the fastest and easiest method that you think it is."

-Wire transfert
-Money gram or Western union or
-bitcoin
-bitcoin cash
We are urgently awaiting for your reply."

"Dear Hani Haidar,
we request a very high discretion from now! No one should be aware of this because we are involved and we do not want our reputation to be compromised. Do not trust anyone or confide in anyone because a leak of information would lead directly to a sounding of thi case, which could make impossible any negotiations agreed with the LCA (Local customs agents).
you are facing your destiny and you must be very careful because it is a very sensitive case.
We are still awaiting urgently for your updates to send the informations to transfert the payment."

Then my friend sends me this about King Express Delivery,

The First-ever BTM Payment in Real World – Instant and Cheaper for Searates Shipment📢

The First-ever BTM Payment in Real World – Instant and Cheaper for Searates Shipment📢
On 22 May 2010, a BTC fan named Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas delivered by Papa John’s for 10,000 bitcoins. While being worth $30 at that time, Hanyecz pizzas would now cost more than $60mln at current bitcoin price. This thus kicks off cryptocurrency’s real-world use as a payment means.
Bytom (BTM), dedicated to bridging the atomic world and bit world with the aim of supporting the interaction of multiple assets, made its first real-world transaction yesterday, October 22 2018.
SeaRates, the world’s largest e-commerce shipping platform, takes the lead to adopt BTM as a payment and settlement tool. The company is the oldest resource dedicated to online logistics based in England, currently with over 600,000 registered users, 40,000 registered carriers and 250,000 shippers. Its site SeaRates.com and mobile apps offer users more than 8,980,000 varied shipping rates across 200 countries and regions around the world.
Comparing to other candidate cryptocurrencies, SeaRates finally seeks to adopt BTM to address such issues as exchange rate fluctuations and exchange costs in US dollar payment. It will also run transactions and check the operability and stability of smart contracts based on Bytom blockchain.
According to SeaRates, if users choose to make shipping payments by cryptocurrency, they are able to check balances and trade history, print and receive freight bills, and most importantly, payments would be completed in seconds. A two-week test of the Cryptocurrency Bytom and crypto wallet on SeaRates showed that Bytom digital payment takes only 0.3 seconds. In addition, there was no loss of value in the overall freight after several USD exchanges with BTM, as BTM will be closely connected with the exchange rates of US dollar, Japanese yen or euro. SeaRates said it would later work with banks in Malta and Swiss to set up built-in exchanges for real-time crypto-fiat exchange, which would effectively rule out any possible speculation operations.

Processing img zqz201jljgu11...
As per logistics information, the bulk garment shipment, from China heading to Korea by sea, has been successfully delivered and received; the whole process cost only 74BTM ($0.23 per BTM as of press time) in total, roughly $17, far less than payment with US dollar under the same circumstance.
As SeaRates site shows, BTM has been the only cryptocurrency that it supports in its online shipping payment, which would enable instant payments for shipping anywhere in the world. In the future, the platform will push hard to implement cryptocurrency payment.
Apart from BTM adoption, SeaRates said it would have in-depth cooperation with Bytom in terms of smart contract. It also announced the first 10 transactions paid in BTM would have a 10% discount(no more than $10,000 per transaction) in an effort to encourage crypto payment in shipping. As of press time, the 2nd transaction using BTM payment is well in progress.
It marks BTM as a digital asset has started circulating in the real world. Currently global logistics of bulk commodity mainly depends on shipping by sea, of which the price is relatively low but it takes long time, during which shipping cost may increase along with the volatile exchange rate. A report in 2016 by a chief economist at Natixis shows, 10% reductions in railway, air and maritime costs would increase trade by 2%, 5.5% and 1.1%, respectively. Adopting BTM payment will effectively avoid the exchange cost arising from exchange rate fluctuations and might even be an effective force for the growth of international trade in the future.
