    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from kingmustard in Why do we talk about RAM in Mhz still?   
    I think the most likely and obvious reason is convention... because that's how everyone has been doing it for so long...
     
    It could also be that 3200Mhz sounds bigger than 3.2Ghz to tech illiterate people and that using Ghz for both CPU and RAM may confuse those same people. Just think of how often people confuse RAM and drive space already. But to be honest, I think the biggest reason is probably just convention. It's the same thing with GPU clocks, they don't use Ghz even though they could at this point.

    Why is this a problem, more free features is not a bad thing for consumers. If premium is no longer worth it for you then move to the free version, it’s a win for you.

    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from matrix07012 in Intel falls further behind as ~0nm transistors created   
    Can't wait until we start referring to transistor sizes in angstroms (or picometers)... but to be realistic this tech is still very far away and making something in a lab is very different than scaling it to commercial levels. The scaling issue is probably the biggest hurdle by far and I wouldn't hold your breath for this to appear anytime soon.

    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from Sernefarian in CPU speed gets limited to 0.78GHz   
    I had an issue with my laptop like this where the trouble was a power limitation because I tried using a 60W brick when it wanted a 90W brick. The problem was that even after using a 90W brick, clearing the CMOS, updating/downgrading/reinstalling the bios, reinstalling windows, changing bios/OS power settings, reapplying thermal paste (even though there are no thermal issues), manually OCing, etc... It still refused to ever go back to the proper clock speed. I ended up being able to fix it by using throttlestop and having the service autostart on boot and I now get the expected speeds.
     
    You should make sure there's not another obvious issue first (go through all the possibilities) but this is a last ditch option if you need to. Be careful with it though and make sure you are constantly monitoring temps since it will no longer autothrottle clock speeds and if you get too hot you can destroy the PC.

    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from Hiten Das in Why people choose Intel?   
    They still have a better performance per thread than AMD does. It's as simple as that. Unless your workloads almost exclusively consist of multi-threaded operations (still fairly uncommon, most uses are a mix of single and multithreaded tasks and the parallel computations may still have to regularly wait on sequential tasks before continuing) then you're better off with faster single cores.
     
    I do some bioinformatics work and although many steps are easily parallelized, my scripts still contain many bottlenecks where only one thread must to finish a task before it can distribute the workload cluster and benefit from more threads. I'll often run some of these parts on my OCed home rig independently before sending it to the HPC since the HPC has a ton of cores (24c/48t in total I think) but they're all 7yo, 3.0-3.6Ghz, Xeons they are slow at single threaded tasks. This is the same thing as AMD vs Intel at the moment. AMD leads in raw performance per $ but Intel still leads in performance per thread.
     
    Don't get too caught up in raw performance numbers not linked to the real world performance. If those were accurate then you would see Vega GPUs destroying the Nvidia lineup based purely on FLOPs but that is far from the case.

    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from Misanthrope in CPU Utilization is Wrong   
    There will always be a hysteresis when it comes to that, it’s pretty normal. Heat takes a little bit to build up and dissipate so the temp will lag behind the usage. This is super apparent with beefy coolers and especially liquid cooling where the cooler heats up and cools down much slower than the utilization changes.

    The irony here is that an AIO that allows you to replace liquids are the only ones who will have issues with liquid evaporating (within their lifetimes).

    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from BuckGup in Microsoft rolls out Xbox April Update with FreeSync Support and 1440p support   
    This is a very good thing for PC gamers that I’ve been waiting for for a long time. I was very happy when the latest gen went x86 for the same reason. This means PC ports will suffer much less from being an afterthought on games. This means less work for the devs and builds that are easily ported between all systems with the only major difference being the default settings, not the core code. This also means that backwards compatibility in future systems will not require virtual emulators with heavy overhead since the hardware is all based on the same architecture (x86). The only thing that would keep older games from being compatible on all future consoles is dev decisions, since there will be almost no actual redesign needed to make it work.
     
    Sounds like a win for all gamers regardless of which systems you use.

    Time to RMA... sounds like a defective/unstable GPU. If it fixed itself it's probably not the panel so it sounds like the GPU. If it's still within retailer policy then exchange it at the store, if not contact Acer.

    I've been pretty happy with the CyberPower 1500PFCLCD. 900W max, pure sine wave rather than simulated, 1500VA, 5 battery outlets + 5 surge outlets + 2 USB ports. Also reports power input/output and other info.

    pyrojoe34 got a reaction from Crunchy Dragon in Best option for better temps (8600k, H110i GTX)   
    Your issue lies somewhere else, the cooler should be just fine for that. I'm guessing you have a bad mount on the block or possibly your pump is failing. The delid will help but if you're getting 80+C at 1.375V then you have bad heat transfer to the block as well. Make sure the pump is running and try remounting the block.

    No that's the speed of the integrated GPU (on the CPU). There is no limit to the GPU speed on a dedicated GPU. You are fine to pair it with any card.
