  • Biography
    Once upon a time, in the American States that are United, there lived a young Dr. Swag, ignorant of the wonderful pcmasterrace. He lived his daily life and was happy, but not as happy as he would have been if he was a part of the pcmasterrace. He liked math and science and whatnot, but was ignorant of the wonderful pcmasterrace. He wasn't as bad as some techies, as illustrated in Experiences with non-techies, as he knew the monitor wasn't usually the computer and what RAM did and that it really made a difference to your PC if your RAM usage was at 100% (though we cannot confirm if he knew that more RAM isn't always better), but he wasn't that much of a techie. He thought that jigahertz was the only thing that matters in a CPU, and had no idea what the term "CPU core" or "dual core" or "quad core" even meant. This was the reason why he thought Apple was absolute trash, as the CPU in their new tablets and phones were still way under 2 ghz while some Android phones had CPUs over 2.5 ghz! Then, one day, his friends at school began playing a game named Team Fortress 2. Because of that, he started playing it too. It was a 3d game, and since it needed a lot more horsepower than Minecraft, his mid-2012 Unibody Macbook Pro couldn't run it that well. He dealt with it for a while, but eventually it became too annoying. He decided that after the next school year started he would get a gaming laptop. However, after the next school year started he realized his laptop was enough, and he didn't really need a laptop. Then, young Dr. Swag recalled that he had two friends that had built their own PCs for gaming. Why couldn't he do it too? He decided that he would build a gaming PC. He created the PC on pcpartpicker. It may not have been the best PC at the price, and looking back now he definitely has some things he would like to change if he could, but it was still a good PC, and hasn't run into any issues to date. Dr. Swag ran into some issues building it, but he solved them all either by himself or with the help of some helpful members of the LTT Forum. It was quite fast, even though it didn't have an SSD (which he is planning on putting in his desktop very soon). After building his PC, Dr. Swag didn't just begin to abandon the pcmasterrace, like many of his friends. Instead, he began to become more and more interested by how PCs worked, why they worked, what the different parts of the PC did, how those parts worked, how the communicated, etc. He began watching many videos from not just Linus but other youtubers too. He began reading very informative reviews from sites like Anandtech, which caused him to learn very much. He has learned a lot in the time since he built his first PC, but he still doesn't know that much. He is currently beginning to look at CPU architectures and how they work. Today, Dr. Swag has become an active member of the LTT Forum, and has helped many people with planning new builds, figuring out what GPU or CPU to buy, and troubleshooting problems with their PC. In his journey to becoming one of the pcmasterrace, Dr. Swag has learned very much, and he hopes to, in the future, learn even more and, after he eventually gets a degree in college, possibly design GPUs or CPUs for companies like AMD, Nvidia, or Intel.

  1. I find it interesting that a ton of people are suddenly blowing up about multi core turbo with Coffee Lake when it's been around for a couple of generations.

     

    A bunch of z170/z270 boards had it, but no one was talking about it then but now all of a sudden they are.

      MEC or multicore enhancement, on the i7-8700k (default mode), locks all cores at 4.7GHz. I believe that this feature can be configured on ASUS motherboards. And yes, this feature has been around for a couple of generations, and I think people have finally realised what performance increase this has, and it explains why the benchmarks were different in lots of other youtube videos.

      People? I think you mean AdoredTV aka AMD Shill :P

      AdoredTV is an interesting guy. It can't be denied that he does some pretty deep diving on some stuff, but he's also amd biased. He claims that Nvidia and Intel aren't bad companies in some vids, then comes around and publishes videos like the history of Intel video.

       

      I stay subbed to him because it's sometimes interesting to see what he has to say, but I always have to hand that mindset of "this is from an amd biased person" whenever I watch his videos.
