Comment Reuse materials (Score 3, Insightful) 222

It stands to reason, though, that if they want to make phones from reused materials then they have to strip everything down to the raw materials so they can reuse them, no?

> After sorting, the materials are sold and used for production stock in new products. No reuse. No parts harvesting. No resale.

Sounds like they're recycling the raw materials, just not the parts. Not 100% ideal, but it beats them winding up in a landfill.

I can't tell if you're complimenting the Doom 2016 programmers or trying to say this stuff is easy compared to Back In The Day.

I *can* tell you that this stuff is not easy *at all*, and the fact that the game gets such good performance across such a wide range of hardware, while still maintaining a high level of visual fidelity on lower end machines, is impressive in its own right.

That they put in the effort to write a Vulkan renderer is itself proof that they're trying to squeeze as much performance out as possible, and not just lazily relying on the hardware to make up for slow/lazy/incompetent programming.
