  1. New to vr, some performance questions gtx1080

    Utilities only measure the load averaged over very long periods of time, like many milliseconds or even a full second. That's an eon when modern desktop CPUs cycle 3-5 times per nanosecond. So you could have periods of 100% load intermixed with periods of lower load, which then becomes an average load of 80%.
  2. No problem. The heatsink isn't really necessary as DDR4 produces very little heat. But if you like the way it looks, that's a nice bonus.
  3. It depends on the price, I guess, but the G.Skill 3200 kit is significantly better. Not only is it faster, it's also Samsung B-die, which has much better chance of working well with your Ryzen chip at the full rated speed. You can tell from the SKUs. 3200 CL14 and 3000 CL16.
  4. Intel revisits 22nm amidst 14nm shortage

    Face, meet palm.
  5. 4930k or i7 4790

    Instructions per clock. It's how much work a CPU core gets done per clock cycle. Combined with the clock speed that determines how much performance you get per core.
  6. Running DLSS on a 640x480 base resolution

    It's anti-aliasing, it's not magic. It can never make 480p look like 1440p.
  7. 4930k or i7 4790

    The 4930K is based on an older architecture with lower IPC, but since it can OC and the 4790 is locked, that should at the very least cancel out the IPC deficit.
  8. PCIe Lanes && NVMe

    Depends how the motherboard is configured, but not necessarily. The chipset actually supports up to 8 SATA ports, so even with 2 shared with an M.2 slot the board can still have 6 regular SATA ports independently. That is the case with your board. The second M.2 slot does, however, share a PCIe clock with some of the PCIe slots which will be disabled if you install a PCIe drive in that M.2 slot. But that's not an issue with a SATA M.2 drive.
  9. NVMe questions

    The M.2 slot on that board only offers a PCIe 2.0 x2 connection. NVMe drives will work, but you're only going to get moderately better performance than from an M.2 SATA SSD.
  10. Buy 1080ti now or wait for 2070?

    Speculation only at this point, but my guess is it'll be slightly faster than a 1080 (but not close to a 1080 Ti).
  11. Yes. I'm not saying it's impossible to find, but often it's unnecessarily difficult. It does sometimes feel like they try to hide the information.
  12. Did the EU actually ban memes?

    Russia Today. Please, tell me more about how bad the EU is, Mr. Putin.
  13. Did the EU actually ban memes?

    1. They didn't do anything yet, this was just a vote on whether to move forward and negotiate with the commission and council. The final vote will be in January, and then if it passes it will take several months for member states to actually pass the laws that implement the directive. 2. There are various copyright exceptions that would cover most memes. Though it is definitely possible for a legitimate use (including memes) to get blocked by mistake.
