  1. Nope, not placebo. Sandy doesn't support high speed Meltdown fix, instead it does it in software. You can disable the Meltdown fix for higher performance by using InSpectre by Gibson Research.
  2. Roku/Firestick style pc challenge!

    compute stick M3..
  3. you don't need chipset drivers, they're an old concept for back when windows didn't have autodetect for a lot of hardware.

  5. Looking for a laptop for $350

    dell latitude/hp Elitebook/Lenovo ThinkPad used with a 3rd or 4th gen chip (not 2nd gen, the iGPU is useless) should do those tasks fine.
  6. x5690 @ 4.4Ghz scores 1012 in Cinebench (Westmere) E5-1650 v1 @ 4.5 scores 1170 in Cinebench (Sandy-E) R5-1600 @ 3.2 scores 1130 in Cinebench (Zen, ram 2933) R5-1600 @ 3.7 scores 1223 in Cinebench (Zen, ram 2666) Keep this in mind. Sandy offers a decent budget option especially if you have a lot of DDR3 still. IPC is okay. For the mobo situation, these Chinese Huanan boards on eBay are around $80-100usd and can hit 4.4Ghz with a 3930k/e5-1650, which both are around $100USD. You could also use ecc DDR3 which is cheap as chips used.
  7. IS G4560 good for 4 years?

    Gaming? No. Daily tasks? Most likely.
  8. Any Laptop recommendations?

    look for either: ryzen5 mobile, good cpu and gpu performance. i5 8th gen, good cpu and mediocre gpu. 8gb ram+ 256gb ssd+ and make sure it's from a known brand
  9. are you video editing with large files? if yes, go for the 960 evo. if no, go for the Toshiba and save a chunk of change. there is not much difference in the real world, NVMe doesn't accelerate random writes too much which matters more than sequential in the real world.
  10. Intel graphics card? RUMOR

    everybody's bashing on intel's iGPs.. IrisPro580 with eDRAM gives the Vega10 a run for its money.. and that's in a 15W power profile. Imagine if they made it bigger and then let it stretch its legs.
  11. External GPU with a All-in-one PC?

    Incorrect. TB2 systems can use TB3 eGPUs using adapters. It's x2 3.0, which shouldn't be all that bad for a midrange GPU like a GTX 1060 or 1070. It's equal to x4 2.0 or x8 1.1 in this graph.
  12. Notebook for Lightroom. i3 or i5?

    More cores are always, always.. good. Even with stuff like web browsing Chrome and Firefox use multiple cores in an attempt to speed up page loading and JavaScript. Lightroom will utilise the extra cores to their fullest when doing final exports and saves, especially when you are dealing with large files at a higher resolution or RAWs.
  13. Notebook for Lightroom. i3 or i5?

    i5-8250 has double the cores and 4x the threads of the i3, making it one hell of a speed boost over the i3.
