    r5 2600x vs i5 9400f (100$ difference)+

    If you're multitasking then Ryzen

    i5 9600k v i7 8700k / 9700k

    Mainly Adobe products such as Premiere, Photoshop and some After effects. OBS for streaming / capturing Then many different IDE's for different platforms. I am looking to get the build complete this week so not really looking to wait unfortunately.

    Gaming Build - is this good??

    Well, you know. Lets look at every core i5 and core i7 CPU. Last time i checked the performance gap has increased beyond the standard 15-20% (in HT favorable tasks) that HT offers. And especially in the 0,1% lows. Its not as if we dont have historical evidence to look at.
  6. When you download a game on steam you have several things to consider. A) The server you're downloading from. They could be limiting bandwidth to ensure availability to all. B) When downloading said game, its also installing so you will have slower times while it writes the game as to the drive. Mechanical drives will reduce it more so than an SSD. C) Consoles are never accurate and do NOT give good results and thus should not be trusted as a source of speed testing or measuring.
  7. Let's praise them, well done apple for giving a small percentage of users a 1 day turn around on a problem that should have been fixed for ALL users 3 bloody years ago. Even $500 Acer's have a better after sales service record than this. Imagine what some people would be saying if Samsung had of done this? I can guarantee you it would not be "good for Samsung to do that".

    Gtx 1660ti or RX 580

    I mean they're in different price brackets. If he's happy playing 1080p high settings for the next year then medium for a couple after that, then RX 580 should be fine. 1660ti however is a much faster card, more comparable to Vega 56 (a bit slower granted, around 10%) Now it'll do ultra settings today, high settings next year and maybe the year after that, then medium a year or 2 after that. So basically it'll last an extra year or two over RX 580. Personally, RX 580 is basically an overclocked RX 480, which is a 3 year old card at this point. Now it runs good still, but it's getting pretty long in the teeth and is what I'd call a budget card rather than a midrange card. I wouldn't buy a 3 year old card if I could afford a 3 month old card.
  10. So I have a 50mbps plan, when I do a speedtest I get around 48mbps, which is normal, but when I actually download something my speed is way way lower. E.g., I was downloading a game from steam and the max Dowland speed I got was around 2.7MB/s, being less than half of the 6MB/s I should theoretically get. I'm connected via ethernet and tested this with a playstation as well. I'm really confused right now, am I missing something?

    Gpu only using half of dedicated memory

    But i just don't understand why it's running at 99% if it's not using all of it's memory.

    550W or more?

    Thank you both! Since I have already placed an order for the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550W 80+ Gold, but it's not been shipped yet, do you suggest me to cancel it or will it work just fine for my build?
  13. So I have bought Mk11 and yes it's no surprise that there's been plenty of issues with it on launch. My issue is odd to say the least. So when I launch the game I notice that the controls keep flickering between xbox and pc controls even when my xbox controller is disconnected.Whenever I try move to the left or up in the menus there seems to be a delay or it feels like its not registering the inputs every time. I then go in a game and my character keeps jumping and the game ends up crashing. I really am at my wits end and idk what to do I have contacted WB support but I can imagine they are extremely busy atm so the reply is going to take ages. If anyone has any suggestions please say it would greatly appreciated. Below are the things I have tried myself. 1. I have completely reinstalled the game and reset the data for it on my pc. 2. I have tried using just mouse and keyboard the problem still persists. 3. I have updated my drivers and Windows 10 and checked my direct x version which is 12. 4. I have tried big picture mode in steam. 5. I have checked the integrity of the game files on steam. 6. Used MSI Afterburner to check usage and it is fine. 7.Tried another game with and without my controllers they work fine so the issue is solely with mk11.

    Performance issues with HDR

    Hi Guys So i just wanted to get some feedback on if any of you have had the same issues as me, i found just last night that i shave performance issues when running games in HDR, the problem doesn't seem to be the HDR its self but seems to be to do with my desktop resolution and what i think is a bug in windows. So my situation is that when playing any game i lose about 30% of my performance, i have narrowed down a work around of: Run a lightweight program like HWinfo and then turn HDR on while the game is running and then back to HWinfo and then alt+tab back to the game. In Assassins creed origins i have noticed a 33% uplift in performance. I have done this with a few other games and for example Metro Exodus nets me a 10% performance increase. Things that i have noticed also, as mentioned before if my desktop resolution is not set the the in-game resolution this will not work, the same resolution but not trying the workaround doesn't give the same result so i know that this alone is not the issue. Anyone have any ideas what i'm facing and if anyone else has had the same problem.

    That's again why I said if the trends continue. The 2600x, right now, with it's 15-20% extra performance is performing worse than the 9400F, even in games with more threads. Could that change? Sure. Do we have any concrete evidence that it will? No. Do we have any evidence that suggests that it might not? Yes, Assassin's Creed (12 threads) and Far Cry 5 (8 threads).
  16. Passed yet another Mondeo on the way to Uni lmao.


    For something which apparently didn't sell well there seems to be a decent concentration of them around here.

    Dr Su will present Zen 2 and Navi at Computex 2019 (May 27th)

    Its just a shame they don't have the same level of confidence from network admins as Intel. If companies were confident they could upgrade fleet systems and servers to AMD with little risk of down time they'd be able to capitalise a lot more.

    Gtx1070ti or 1070sli

    You could do it as a favour for your friend, but if it were me and was only concerned with my gaming performance I'd just sell the 1070 run with 1 1070ti. Sure 1070 SLI CAN be faster when it works, but SLI has been going downhill for the last few years and I wouldn't bother messing with it these days.

    Except people dont care about either. They only care about noise and the 2600x isnt known as a especially noisy CPU. Edit: nor powerhungry And this small sifference of 15-20% performance increase has shown to be critical in longevity when it comes to CPUs. Especially in a shifting market as shown with every 4c/4t CPU from 2nd gen to 7th gen. And bow we are moving to 10/12/16 cores on the high end in a shifting market. That HT is going to be more important than during the dormant CPU age between 2010 and 2017

    Which display?

    Even if you are not a competitive gamer you should not settle for a 60hz panel especially when you have such a capable GPU. I think you should go for a 144 hz panel for without HDR ( You can go for the Samsung CHG70 curved 1440p with 144hz and HDR for 450$. It is a bit expensive but you can wait a little to save some more money and make no compromises) Hope this helps. monitor link-https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824022583&Description=HDR monitor&cm_re=HDR_monitor-_-24-022-583-_-Product
  21. Cheezits...Nvidia Turing has been a complete mess.  The new GTX 1650 is an entry-level card with an acceptable performance boost and TDP, but horrible pricing.


    I can't wait for Navi to come in and shake things up... :D

    what are you running this speed test to? Try running it with iperf on the local network.
  23. I am planning to do an upgrade to the 3rd gen ryzen cpus and with that I will change my case(at least try to, it depends on cpu+mobo prices) to the corsair crystal 280x with the h100i aio cooler and 2 LL120 RGB fans and I would try to still use the fans than come included with the case(doesn't come with rgb fans) adding to a total of 6 fans(aio on top(x2 ML120+ 240mm rad)+ x2 LL120RGB at thefront + x2 ML120 at the bottom). And I haven't found any stores(in spain) that sell the corsair hub other than corsair's web site. But they do sell other fan hub like this ones: https://www.pccomponentes.com/aerocool-project-7-p7-h1-hub-controlador-rgb-para-ventiladores https://www.amazon.es/Thermaltake-Commander-FP-Concentrador-Ventiladores/dp/B015KG6HP0/ref=asc_df_B015KG6HP0/?tag=googshopes-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=82853727250&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=639400820513735638&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9061047&hvtargid=pla-260963482478&psc=1 I've also though of using something like this and connect it on to the mobo. https://www.amazon.es/DEEPCOOL-Fan-HUB-Multiplicador-ventiladores/dp/B008YD7B0M/ref=asc_df_B008YD7B0M/?tag=googshopes-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=301006161094&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=639400820513735638&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9061047&hvtargid=pla-404766633119&psc=1 Does anyone know if this two methods would work. Thx

    Gaming Build - is this good??

    Its got good enough VRM to hold it stock. And the 9900k and perhaps a theoretical 10 core 14nm CPU during the summer. As the only upgrade paths. Now i havent doublechecked, that looks an awful lot like the exact same VRM as the B450 parts use. Though dont quote me on that one. Its either that or the budget X470 board.

    Gaming Build - is this good??

    Yes, but it's not making a difference right now. Assassin's Creed USES 12 threads and yet the 9400F still wins. That's why I said IF these trends continue. Also having 12 threads doesn't really mean much. The end performance numbers are what matters. SMT/HTT doesn't mean you actually have double of anything tangible. It's just a fancy way of saying that the chip can force the cores to do more work between their "down time" (in between clock cycles), and at the expense of a lot more heat and power consumption.
