  1. Assuming both are the 1050ti/7700hq models, the performance is rather similar. I believe the dell does a little bit better in tempuratures so it would be worth considering that. If your budget allows, have a look at the cost of a step-up model that has a GTX1060 instead as the performance is close to double. Often the price on a second hand one is the same as the 1050ti models new. (I just did this after shopping around for a couple of months)
  2. I just bought an old PSP 1000 a couple of weeks ago so I can play PSX and GBA games on a portable with buttons (unlike a phone). I think there's a place in the market, but it needs the game library to back it up. If I could play games like The Witcher 3 on a portable I'd be all in (Needs more power than the Nvidia Shield family though, they're only really good for Source engine levels of performance).

    Pubg looks like 30hz at 4k

    MIght be worth checking the Nvidia control panel program settings, you may have an override with something like V-sync that only works in fullscreen mode. I've also had an issue with steam overlay causing reduced frames after tabbing out or opening the overlay in-game. While likely not the culprit, it may be worth checking if nothing else is working.

    Skyrim SE mods to make use of my 1080ti

    Vanilla visuals are solid, however the 1080ti should get you into the 100+FPS realm at 1440p so something like Halk Hogan's newly released graphics overhaul would be a great option. http://www.nexusmods.com/witcher3/mods/1021/? There is also a mod (can't remember name, will add if I find) that gives you full control of all the graphics options under the hood, which can really max out the graphics your system can handle.

    Skyrim SE mods to make use of my 1080ti

    There's a couple of mods that overhaul the shaders to 'pretty' up the game. Very subjective whether they're better or not, but a look at nexusmods top files doesn't hurt for good options. http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/top/? Also if you haven't already, I HIGHLY recommend trying out The Witcher 3. Game is gorgeous and had me hooked for 400 hours, and it has similar mod support to bethesda titles.

    Learn Android FAST!! Advice needed

    If you find this thread and are in the same boat as me, I've found the biggest help is to rearrange the IDE components to match what you are used to. For me, this was copying the Visual Studio C# designer style and it's back to familiar ground. The similarities to C# are pretty uncanny once rearranged. This, while I haven't yet faced, will surely rear its head soon. This will probably be just a case of experience and googling. Cheers for the help, appreciate it. also found this video quite helpful for getting through the boring stuff to begin with: layout:

    Learn Android FAST!! Advice needed

    Thanks, you'll probably get a pm or two in the next couple of weeks. I'm hoping the final design will be fairly universal to make things easier.

    Learn Android FAST!! Advice needed

    Yea, I have a small amount of Java experience but I'll need to brush up on that. I jumped in to Android Studio and it seems a little bit daunting though
  11. Hi guys, I have been asked to help a lecturer at uni with developing an Android app for their phd research. It's paid work and would be really good for the CV but I've never done android before. Any advice on where I can learn to use Android Studio in 2 weeks? My experience is mostly in C++ in Visual Studio doing game dev with openGL, SFML and Box2D. Thanks, appreciate any input.
  12. Is that difference in price between products from different regions? if it's $110 hike for the $20 module, there's got to be something else going on. As for a time, I'd expect it to just be another product available at retailers at some point in the next month or two. If they are smart they'd try target the price drops on ryzen pre-threadripper.
  13. As an owner of the C6H, (had 2 Aurus Gaming 5's that failed, this was the 'get away from gigabyte' replacement) I thought that the antennas and wifi module came with the board. I don't use wifi for my system, and honestly don't think most people buying a board of this caliber to so it doesn't bother me, but if the price increase is significant I'd suggest the non-wifi variant would be much more popular. Could be a delayed launch to not scare off customers at the launch of Ryzen with a high price.
  14. Damn. Well, time to go back to 9.10 I suppose..
  15. Found a fix! If anyone else has this issue, I recommend this (after a registry backup): Simple restore registry settings to default for word.
