    Does ryzen 5 2400g bottlenecks my rtx 2070

    What motherboard do you have? Also, why would you buy an APU with good integrated graphics that's sole purpose is to be used mainly without a dedicated GPU and pair it with an RTX 2070? The bottleneck shouldn't be that bad if you OC'd the CPU because it's still a hyperthreaded quad-core, however it would be a lot better if you had a 6-core or an 8-core Ryzen chip.

    Thread moved to General Discussion, this is not tech news.

    GTX 1070 ti needs a CPU..

    It's probably something he read but it was related to the AMD FX-series processors. Nowadays it's Intel which run hot and draw more power though. As for OP's question - The choice should be AMD in ~90% of cases with the current lineup that's on the market. What do you need the CPU for? What will you be using the PC for?

    DaFuq? Ryzen Ram Compatibility??

    Yes. It's a component of the motherboard that converts supplied power to the CPU to lower voltages.
  5. Morgan MLGman

    DaFuq? Ryzen Ram Compatibility??

    Pretty much all DDR4 RAM should work on this board (unless aiming for 4000MHz+ overclocks or something of this sort), however I'd recommend finding a board with better VRM for an 8-core Ryzen chip. Also, you should look for RAM around 3000-3200MHz for the R7 1700, it's the best price/performance choice.

    Used GTX 1080 Ti Benchmark

    No, this is exactly why you have 3 scores - Graphics (GPU), Physics (CPU) and Combined (CPU+GPU) - the Physics score in this screenshot is actually quite high considering my overclocked 6700K scores somewhere around 14400 and here the Ryzen 7 2700X does almost 22000 It's a multithreaded test though so that's expected.
  7. Morgan MLGman

    Used GTX 1080 Ti Benchmark

    That's not true. It depends on which score you're looking at. When you're looking at the Graphics Score then the CPU pretty much doesn't matter. This test was done with a 2700X which is a lot more powerful than the 7700K, this is why the Physics Score (CPU Score) is so high here. It's the combined score that might be a tiny bit lower on the Ryzen chip, but it's not affecting the overall score in any meaningful way. In this case you should be looking at the Graphics Score ONLY which looks okay for a stock 1080Ti, mine when overclocked does over 32K of Graphics score so it seems legit.
  8. Just wanted to point it out for budget GPU buyers, an RX 570 was recently re-tested by HardwareUnboxed under 2019 Adrenalin Edition drivers and here's the result against its direct competitor at the moment:

    Guess which one is more expensive? The 43% slower 1050Ti (chart below sorted by price [ascending]):

    TL;DR Do not buy a 1050Ti because it's terrible value.

      1050ti should be a 99$ card with these amazing AMD prices...

      150USD is damn too much for this kind of performance IMO, it'd be an EXCELLENT card at 99USD which would have destroyed AMD's lineup that's below an RX 570.

      I gotta say that these prices for 1050Tis are ridiculous when you look at its performance...

  9. Unfortunately no more information is available at the time as the investigation is currently ongoing, it's a very fresh news even in Poland so I'll definitely update the thread with specifics. I honestly have no idea why would they spy in this country, besides the fact that it became a huge market for chinese phones though so it might be related to that. Xiaomi and Huawei/Honor became the most popular phones in Poland over barely 3 years. Other than that, there's nothing here that other developed countries do not have. And it's DEFINITELY not military secrets because our military is a joke. Possibly, however I somewhat doubt it as it's three different people working in three different places (although in the same industry field) that were seemingly unrelated to each other. My bet would be on someone reporting the issue after seeing some suspicious activity, however it's only speculation because no other information is available at this time. I'll definitely update the thread if something new pops up.
  10. I put this part in the post: Some of this information was only present in Polish sources at the moment of writing so I added more information than what CNBC reported... All three people were connected to both Huawei and Chinese government as it turned out so I mentioned Huawei in the title, it was in no way my intention for the title to appear clickbait-ish or something of this sort... Thanks for your input, I'll take that into consideration and will consult this matter with other mods.
  11. That's relevant so I'll add @leadeater to this response too. Funnily enough, two guys I know (and went to high school with) recently (early November) got arrested for the same 3-month time period for having weed in their house and selling it to some their friends until they await trial Which is worse, espionage for a foreign government or selling some weed to friends? Apparently there's no difference to our law system...
  12. Response below: Also, Huawei has been accused of spying by multiple governments and companies so this is a new instance of this occuring and there are people who find this interesting. You might not, and that's fully understandable
  13. Actually not, it's a stupid law in Poland that allows the Police to hold someone in arrest for up to 3 months for any crime (of course the more severe ones). It includes selling drugs etc and espionage falls under that law too. The problem with that law is that it's stated as a "preventive arrest" - i.e. to prevent any further crimes from the arrested person until the trial etc. And because of this fact, this 3-month "arrest" is not technically imprisonment because the person has not been legally sentenced. And as a reason this 3-month arrest period can be extended pretty much indefinitely, there were cases of this arrest period lasting almost 10 years (!!!). I suppose for the same reason as the previous thread that reported the arrest of Huawei's CEO daughter.
  14. Well, I could argue with the bolded part as a Polish native, especially considering our current government, but yeah, I'm in the IT industry in Poland and I've heard from inside sources that it's quite a serious deal so I decided to post news about it
  15. So this is today's news that's quite hot in Poland and just barely got posted on international sites. Original source (in Polish): https://www.wirtualnemedia.pl/artykul/abw-aresztowanie-dwoch-pracownikow-huawei-orange-polska-i-uke-sa-podejrzani-o-szpiegostwo English source: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/11/poland-arrests-huawei-employee-over-spying-allegations.html So once again an important representative from Huawei was arrested under charges of espionage for China. The charges are "spying against Poland" which can mean up to 10 years in prison. At this time, all three men will be held imprisoned for AT LEAST 3 months until further charges are pressed. The men were arrested because the Internal Security Agency in Poland determined that they were in constant contact with Chinese Secret Service. This Sales Director responsible for Polish market is a Chinese citizen named Weijing W. The other two people that were arrested are Polish citizens, one of which works for the Polish department of a large French telecom company named "Orange S.A.". The other individual was an employee of a Polish government agency that has responsibilties similar to the F.B.I. in the U.S up until 2011. The English source doesn't mention the 3rd person involved, however the Polish one does and it's definitely more up-to-date. Official response from Huawei: Conclusion? Well, this Polish security agency stated in December 2018 that they have no plans on ditching Huawei in terms of developing 5G network in Poland, I suppose this might be a subject to change after this news. We'll see how the investigation goes, I should be kept up-to-date by our local media so I can update this post when more news break out on this matter. Your thoughts on this? [UPDATE] @Sauron An official statement from a government agency has appeared, it's brief but might answer your question: In rough translation it means: From what I found out, the Internal Security Agency was on the case for some time, gathering evidence after receiving "reports" possibly pointing to those people and the Chinese government. The ISA also searched HQ of Orange Poland for additional evidence who complied with all of their requests. The ISA official said that the espionage was related to the telecom industry, not military or security. They also said that no further information will be released at this time as it's a part of a current investigation.
