  2. What do you have right now? For 1080p you can get away with a cheaper rx 580.

    AMD Ryzen 3000 rumours are Adored

    It would be a big jump, but I think a lot of people have forgotten that new architectures are a lot easier to improve than long established ones. Everyone got used to the last ~5 years of Intel giving <5% bumps to IPC and clock speed and forgot that the first few Core generations had much more significant performance boosts. That, and a lot of people probably don't want to get their hopes up, especially poat-Vega. While 5Ghz is certainly not guaranteed, I don't see anything outrageous about it, especially as single/two core boost clock.

    Can I get files off of a smashed phone?

    The screen is smashed and was half black half green then the oled started leaking in the green and the back glass is smashed. I'm pretty sure the only broken parts of it is the screen and glass I think the internals is fine, after it smashed I was asking google how the weather was and all seemed fine. If the internal main board with my data is fine I will carry that over to the new phone body along with the camera, fingerprint, etc

    Programming - Real world projects to practice

    Try to write a C++ console application that plays a wave sound file. (The hard way, not by using the winapi "playsound" function) Open the file and parse the header to get the sound format/bitrate, etc. Teaches basic file IO and parsing. Read the contents of the file to memory (hint: std::vector) Use SDL audio to play back the audio. Teaches including and linking against a external library, reading documentation in figuring out how to use said library, etc. Write a neat RAII lock to engage when handling callbacks. Basic sample rate conversion when the wave file sample rate and the sample rate you got from SDL don't match (simple sample duplication/dropping will suffice). That'll get you going for a fair bit.

    Buy it yourself. Jeebus this seems insanely entitled.

    I don't understand my brother's question.

    I would just get the Vega 64 Nitro+.. The absolute best thing your going to get for $399 is a more power effecient card.. That's it. If there is a Navi card close to $400, I highly doubt it will beat the Vega 64 after a good undervolt/overclock.. I also doubt it will be a premium 3 fan design at that price and performance. The Nitro+ is the absolute best Vega 64 (non liquid cooled) you can buy and it's also now the cheapest. If anyone thinks that AMD cards are going to be drastically below the price of Nvidias, you're fooling yourself. You might save a few bucks and yes I think AMD will undercut Nvidias pricing, but anyone expecting 2070 performance for $300, I have some land in Florida for ya.. Nvidia raised the price ceiling, so thank them by not supporting them mmk? If you have a decent power supply, make the smart decision and get a Vega 64 Nitro+ while they're still on sale.
  12. These "issues" stem from high frame rate gaming and Battlefield 5. That's it. False, and don't put words in my mouth. Here:
  13. Im doing a pc upgrade and im wondering if these are good choice? Also right now i have 8 gb 2400 DDR4 ram . Should i upgrade too 16gb 3000mhz ram? A Im mainly thinking of doing 1080p gaming nothing more .

    There was a time when here in the EU if you installed Win7 you could chose between IE Firefox and Chrome (maybe even Opera?) as the browser you wanted to be installed. Good old days.

    would these work together? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XJ5LT72/?coliid=I1TVFGQW05F4FX&colid=9YCQ8F1AQ24P&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it&th=1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BH56G9R/?coliid=I35I3DK5L5XHRA&colid=9YCQ8F1AQ24P&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

    Can I get files off of a smashed phone?

    Since you couldn't post link: https://rossmanngroup.com/ @Jessentis Data recovery services are an option, getting a replacement screen and having a local repair center is more likely a better option. Most places I've dealt with will not reset devices when just replacing a screen.
  17. I've decided that I'm just gonna stay at 1.4v and 4.7ghz just to be on the safe side, as tempting as it is. Just for fun I bumped it up to 1.45v just for a second to see what I'd get, 4.9ghz completed Cinebench and scored 960 points, and 5ghz kept ALMOST wanting to finish, but couldn't quite. No bluescreens, but the program would crash. So... 1.4v 4.7ghz seems fine. Though, if anyone else has had experience running at higher voltages, I'd still really value your opinions!

    Goodbye Antergos

    Yes, that doesn't mean someone couldn't have a personal preference for Antergos - they also had some extra repos with some stuff that would be in the AUR otherwise, a wiki and a forum. There are plenty of things in the Linux world that seem like unnecessary alternatives but that's part of the beauty of it. After all you could argue there's no need for a graphical Arch installer in the first place - the CLI version does "basically the same thing".

    If you have any version of a Windows OS ... you already have IE so that skews the numbers just a bit.

    Edge is... actually GOOD now!?

    VPNs have never been more popular meanwhile people are also using Chrome more than ever. Yikes

    There's a good reason for that. Z390 will allow RAM speeds of 3000MHz+. There are titles which show up to a 16% improvement in FPS going from 2666MHz (which is what the B-boards are locked to) to 3000MHz. It also will allow a real upgrade path to the 9700K and the 9900K, whereas the B-boards all have far weaker VRMs, cutting off any upgrade path. The UD is only $20 more than the B365 boards. It's definitely worth it for the RAM speed boost and the upgrade path.
  23. It's not wasted money, 4c/4t CPUs have issues running some games right now, do you honestly think they won't be worse off a few years from now? You still have yet to provide any proof that these games are actually poorly coded. Running worse on less capable hardware =/= poorly coded. Except it's not. You're essentially arguing that something is no longer mid-range literally just because it's more capable than the previous generation. Apply this argument to GPUs or any other product and you'll see how dumb it is. Where did I fear monger? It's a fact that hexacores are more capable, it's fact that they get better performance in games, and it's a fact that they multitask better than quad cores.

    Most IE usage probably comes out of Microsoft having old agreements with companies that they have to use their products I think, but I should try to find some ststistics on that.
  26. How is it even possible for them to be this incompetent. I've shopped on extremely niche hobby websites that had totally functional shopping carts with coupon codes and shipping calculators and the whole shebang. Anyone with coding experience: realistically how long would it take a competent programmer to implement a very basic but functional shopping cart into an piece of software? Surely it couldn't be more than a few days to get working and then maybe a week or two to test and double check everything, right? Even if they give zero shuts about their PR or the user experience, why would they not just throw one or two software devs at it and get it over with? They are throwing around millions of dollars like it's pocket change, how have they not just contracted out to a small team to make their store functional on a basic level?
