  1. It might, but likely won't. Just stick to NVENC then.
  2. Try to use QuickSync instead, it has better quality/bitrate and runs on the iGPU, a chip you're likely not using.
  3. What software are you using to stream? There's likely been something that disabled hardware acceleration. Just go into setting and set it to use QuickSync, VCE or NVENC.
  4. 8GB of DDR4 dual-channel vs 12GB of DDR4 single-channel If I can get +20% by doubleing my effective RAM speed, I'd rather buy 2x4GB sticks, but if it's more along the lines of 5%, I might as well just take a singe 8GB stick and run with it.
  5. I'm looking at this from a laptop's point of view.
  6. I know that integrated GPUs scale with RAM speed, as they use it as their framebuffer, but I can't find any benchmarks on this matter. I'm looking for gaming benchmarks that test for correlation between performance and RAM speed/channels. I found a test from Anandtech about this, but it was on DDR3 and Haswell. Do you know of any tests that were run to test this?
  7. a 2013 PC will do absolutely fine with CEMU, but that's not what 2013 consoles have. That Kabini thing over there is overshadowed by the strong IPC of an Atom, runs at slow speeds and it's only saving grace is its core count, something emulators can't use properly.
  8. Someone ported an emulator for the XBONE, you'll have to pay 20$ for developer account or whatever.. Not sure what emulator it was,and besides, the XBONE is too weak for dolphin
  9. Would've thought so, but GPU utilization follows CPU's, so it's not the CPU bottle-necking the GPU in the normal way...
  10. Thanks for the graphs, I wish anyone asking for help would provide that much information in the 1st post. Anyhow, it looks like power issues, might be GPU VRM overheating or hitting TDP limits, the MoBo's VRM is likely fine, but the PSU might be tripping on OCP or something...
  11. Strange, The error you posted is an EFI error. I guess try flashing the bios with an up-to-date one...
  12. Dude, I already told you the UEFI settings are fked up. Just reset those and it should be fine.
  13. Yes, return them. It is getting better in DX9-11 games by the day, but since DX12/Vulkan SLI is on the devs to implement, we can all wave goodbye to multiGPU configs.

    Free MMORPG?

    More a looter than MMORPG, but give Warframe a shot.
  15. With the Ubuntu USB in, what boot options does it give you? There should be ways for said live USB, BIOS and UEFI. If one doesn't work, try the other one. Or you could just pull out the CMOS batter for a few minutes...
  16. Go for it while it's stable. While RAM speeds aren't directly linked to core speed, they are linked to inter-module speed inside the CPU, a small quirk of Zen. Airflow from a CPU cooler is enough to cool RAM, besides, memory chips, unlike most ICs, like running hot.
  17. Looks like UEFI is fked up, try disabling it and boot only using BIOS. It may not be a fix, but it could patch your issue. (look for BIOS or Legacy boot in UEFI(BIOS) settings)
  18. I'm pretty sure Wendel is running a Surface, thus Linux on it should be no problem. For your use-case however, you\de be better off with an XPS 13 or perhaps one of xiaomi's notebooks. A touchscreen for programming only gets in the way and while for coding alone, a taller screen is a plus, you\ll be wasting screen space once you open up some movies.
  19. I'm not saying it's a bad idea, I'm trying to warn him about the troubles surrounding dual-channel RAM. He'll have to get the EXACT same module for it to work down the road.
  20. Just make sure you'll run dual-channel with the second one.
  21. Seems mostly good. The PSU is suspicious and I'd take 2x4GB over 1x8GB any day of the week, as it's twice as fast. The CPU is a great choice and you should hold onto it. As far as the GPU is concerned, as JaegerB stated above, the 6GB variants actually have more CUDA cores. Shitty buisness practice, but what can you do.
  22. Turbo boost is limited by tempreatures and power over time, that's why after runnning for a while on low speeds, it can boost way up, but it's not allowed to stay there. just don't forget, that more power on the CPU shortens the battery life.
  23. If you want more CPU performance in sustained load, you can download that intel tweak app and just increase the TDP, to help it hold it's boost longer. The temps look like it would do fine with more power, just make sure to enable it only while plugged-in, it will feast on battery. I never actually used the intel tweak tool, so it might be able to lock it's settings to windows profiles. (AKA only run that extra boost while being charged)
  24. I was recently forced to do something similar to my HyperX cloud. The reality of it is, there's no standard for audio cable wire colors like with USB or Ethernet. If your cups are screwed together, you'll be best off just opening them on looking at how those wires are soldered at that end. otherwise you'll have hope the biggest one (likely pure copper in your case) is ground than try which wire is which and potentially swap them around. Edit: Is it a 4-pole jack headset?
  25. I don't have a PayPal account, and I don't want one. Is it possible to subscribe to floatplane using a regular debit card? I know it has been promised, that the new site will support card payments, but I'd rather lock into the $3/month $30/year deal, as from what I understood, once the new site launches, it will be more expensive. So do I have to create a fake card using privacy.com to register a PayPal account so that I can buy 1 or 2 months of floatplane before the site launches? If there's no way to pay via a card, can we get like a one week window on the new site to lock into the $3/month deal?
