  1. That's pretty neat. This is the first time I am learning of this. Thanks for the explanation! I was also wondering, would it be a big difference between the performance of 8GB dual channel and 12GB single channel?
  2. Hi people! I have an Acer Aspire A515-51G laptop with the following specs: Intel Core i5-8250u Nvidia GeForce MX150 2GB GDDR5 1TB WD Blue HDD 240 GB M.2 WD Green SATA SSD 4GB soldered 2400MHz + 16GB Crucial 2400MHz I just installed 16GB 2400MHz RAM into the only slot in the laptop that came fitted with a 4GB module. Earlier, the 4+4 memory was running in dual channel mode, checked it via CPUz. I was afraid that me purchasing the 16GB stick would probably make the RAM run in Single channel mode, but I went ahead with the upgrade since it would have helped with my office work when I have to run multiple applications, multiple instances of Visual Studio, Chrome tabs etc. However, I installed the RAM, making a total of 20GB, fired up CPUz, and low and behold, the Memory tab still shows channel # as Dual. What happened here? I read everywhere that I would have to get a same speed, same size and same latency RAMs in order to make it run in Dual channel mode, but here I just have the RAM with same frequency and latency. Then how is this still in Dual channel?
  3. Even if it does turn out that I am running in single channel, I am still leaning more towards RAM capacity as compared to dual channel. I don't think it would be worth to buy a similar 4GB stick to get dual channel config.
  4. I will try CPU-Z when I get home. However, I do not have another RAM stick that matches the original's speed, timings or capacity.
  5. Wouldn't 20GB be more, sorry have to use the F-word, future proof? I could probably also take this stick to any new machine that I would be upgrading to around Dec 2020-Jan 2021.
  6. Yes. Task manager shows the RAM running at 2133MHz.
  7. Hi people! I have an Acer Aspire A515-51G laptop with the following specs: Intel Core i5-8250u Nvidia GeForce MX150 2GB GDDR5 1TB WD Blue HDD 240 GB M.2 WD Green SATA SSD 4GB soldered 2400MHz + 4GB ADATA 2133MHz DDR4 I recently found out that the only RAM slot in the laptop has infact only 4GB stick, and other 4GB is soldered onto mainboard. I was thinking of upgrading the RAM, however I am confused about what RAM capacity to go for. If I got an 8GB stick, it totals to 12GB, which I do not think to be an upgrade enough from current 8GB. If I got a 16GB stick, i totals to 20GB, which would be a significant upgrade, but costs about double the 8gb stick. I play games and multitask a lot, not at the same time though, and some games that I play such as BFV and NFS Payback/Heat stutter sometimes, even if installed onto the SSD. Also, I play a lot of BF1 multiplayer. Which one do you think would be better for my case?
  8. Oh that's sad. I actually liked Cortana when I was using a Windows Phone. She was really fun to talk with and had a great natural speech, at a time when Android and iOS assistants still sounded robotic. I hope they keep it optional on Windows 10 though.
  9. Measurements of? You're gonna need to be more specific then that. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
  10. Yeah. Sure. But I meant that from a UI and installed apps perspective. OP specifically mentioned hating the interface on Pixel devices because of being bloated while wanting to own a Samsung device which are known for their clunky UI and multiple apps for same purpose, one from Google and other from Samsung.
  11. Wow! That's the first time I have heard about Pixel phones getting bloated by Google. I mean, Pixels are probably the cleanest Android phones that you can find. And also, you are considering Samsung phones, even though you dislike clunky interfaces? Have you tried a Samsung before?
  12. Mediocre in what departments? I mean, the performance will surely be better in GV62, in case of thermals and overall build quality, I guess it just is a necessary sacrifice if OP cares about performance aspect only.
  13. I see you have not mentioned Flipkart.com. Is there an issue with flipkart? Or personal preference. Becuse there are many more choices for laptops with 1050Ti on flipkart and under very reasonable prices. For Example - Asus TUF Series i5 8th gen availale for 79990 INR Oh and this one looks almost perfect with 16GB Ram i7 8th gen and a 1060 - MSI GV Series available for 87990
  14. I use TrueCaller to find out unknown callers on my Android device but without the app since it builds its database off of people's contacts. So if a person has saved Grandpa Linus as a contact name for some number, it is very much possible that I may see the same name for the number if I search in Truecaller. So does this mean an end for such apps (eventually Truecaller) for the iOS devices? That might be pretty hugh since Truecaller is a big name in caller ID apps.
  15. Inb4 people selling these fake RAM as legit RAM sticks on ebay for their original price and calling it a day. ?
  16. Yeah well! I guess I'll get a wireless USB adapter then, since the WiFi mode seems to be working fine. And then hop on to a new router if there's any trouble there. Thanks for the help!
  17. Thanks for the quick reply! I am already on the latest BIOS available for my motherboard, Gigabyte H81M-S, and the ethernet controller is built into the board itself. So, it looks like the router is at fault right? Also I have noticed this has been happening since around the time my ISP upgraded the internet speed to 10 mbps. Earlier it used to be 4 mbps. Yet the router is connected to internet for days without fault except when I start up my PC.
  18. Hello everyone! I have been having this strange issue lately with my setup. I have a Dlink 2750U modem + router that is connected to my PC using ethernet and the rest of the devices connect to it via WiFi including 1 laptop and 4 smartphones. So as soon as my PC starts up, my internet goes down, the indicator lights for both link and internet turn off and the router tries to reconnect to the internet.Sometimes I even have to restart the router manually whenever this happens as it is not able to connect to the internet. This happens almost all the time. And it only happens with my PC and only when it is connected via ethernet. This happens when my PC starts up either from hibernate mode or shutdown mode, restart does not cause this as it already has when the PC first started up. I have tried resetting the router, reconfiguring it, checking if DHCP is on, reinstalling Windows, reinstalling router firmware but nothing works. Also, I thought it might be an issue with the PC but connecting it to the router using USB tethering on my Android which is connected via WiFi, works just fine. I have also tried changing the cable, trying all four of the ethernet ports that the router provides to no avail. Since it never happens when other devices that connect using WiFi start up or shutdown, I am starting to think this might be an issue with the ethernet portion of the router or it might be going bust. It is around 4-5 years old. Anyone of you ever faced this? Any help would be appreciated. I am thinking of buying a wireless USB adapter if nothing works, as I cannot just keep restarting my router every time I have to use my PC. Thanks in advance!
  19. Yeah. This one might actually be a great use for it. But damn man! That's honestly a pretty bad condition when one isn't even able to talk to get services( that's what the AI is aiming for right?). I feel real awkward talking to people face to face. But I give 'em hell talking on the phone lol. Not being able to see how they are reacting actually makes me confident in my speech. But to each their own I guess.
  20. So it is somehow easier to say "make an appointment to hairdresser between 10 to 12" to an AI, have the AI call the Hairdresser, than it is to call the hairdresser yourself and say the same thing to them? I mean its cool and all but you're basically going to say the same thing to both of them, why not call yourself?
  21. oh boy! Quite a few things actually... An SSD Usb C device Mechanical keyboard Blu-ray disks Xbox PlayStation Home assistant Anything above 1080p
  22. I wonder then, why is it named Black Ops? The game types in multiplayer do not justify the title. I mean previous game titles suggested what the campaign was based upon. Should've just been called Call of Duty.
  23. So, did they start the rollout and then stop it, or they stopped it before anyone could get it? I am asking this because I have an update lined up for installing since early morning yesterday (11th April) which I thought would be the Spring Creators or Next update. So what is it then? Says Cumulative update for Windows x64 in the settings.
  24. So, I have a GT 730 Kepler variant (the one with the GK208 chip and GDDR5 memory). I hope it still qualifies for future updates. Not that I would run latest games on it, but in general fixes as Windows 10 evolves. I'm expecting a couple of years more for this card to reach its EOL.
