    Acer nitro 5 throttling cpu on battery

    Honestly, havent heard of it. I’ll look into it

    Acer nitro 5 throttling cpu on battery

    That doesnt work, i’ve enabled high perfomance everywhere, and its not just my machine, i actually returned my first nitro 5 over this, the store model did it and this one did. And i checked the nearby hp and dell machines equiped with a 2500u and neither showed the behavior the nitro 5 does
  4. Alright so, the new 19.2.3 drivers fixed my apu’s graphics clock problems, now i wana solve my nitro 5’s cpu downclock issue. So. When i unplug this, the cpu instantly drops to a max of 80% usage at 1.58ghz. (0 thermal throttling). Now i have some suspision this has to do with the registry. The bios on this thing is so bare i cant do anything. So. Anyone have any idea where that would be stored in registry so i can make changes?

    GTX 1050 Ti vs GTX 1060 3GB vs RX 560

    It technically is. But 3gb kills longevity. Hence why trying to get a 4gb card of a 570 or 580 is a better bet. Hell if you can try and search around for a 470 or 480 used. Better yet. You can go back a little farther, ie to gtx 970 (a 3.5gb card) or a r9 390x or 290x.

    GTX 1050 Ti vs GTX 1060 3GB vs RX 560

    Pick up a rx 570 or 580, those are going for $150-180 USD.
  7. So, i’ve made an interesting discovery with my acer nitro 5. (I have the 2500U+560x model). you can unlock wattman. Now, how i did. 1. i installed msi afterburner. 2. Enabled unlock voltage monitoring 3. Enabled force constant voltage 4. Enable extend offical overclocking limits. 5. Restart volia! Wattmans there. I have a sneaking suspision that this will work with all Amd dgpu equipped laptops. however i must say right here. There is a chance that this can brick your laptops. The vrms and crap are likely built to run at stock oem clocks of the parts, especally on the nitro 5 which is a value gaming laptop. but, nether the less i did oc my laptop a tiny bit and here. overclocked Stock Now, the most useful feature i found to enable was to raise the power limit to pin the clocks at their max boost. And of course i did this plugged in. I’d probably be a horrible idea to do this on battery. Granted you will likely not be able to go as far as a desktop 560, but this is some food for thought.

    Looking to flash r9 380 bios

    Hello, so i’ve had an r9 380 thats been sitting around half working for a while. I recently tore it apart, lightly cleaned it (wasnt that dirty so i just sort of blew it off), put new paste on it snd it started to work a lot better. With this card, its had an issue where going under any load causes it to crash. Its an XFx double Dissipation card. I dont really trust the bios on it (yes, i’ve rm’ad the card before and xfx got snappy with me, they said it had a 380x bios on it which is why i dont trust its current bios, even though they said they flashed it back.) so how bad of an idea would it be to put for say a Msi r9 380 bios on it. I know it seems odd, since i have vega 56 now, but the 380 is my first gpu and i’d like to get it working again.

    Blender 2.8 binding to bones. Help!

    well, reason why it pisses me off is that I have 3.3k hours in blender and for that to happen pisses me off. so yeah

    Blender 2.8 binding to bones. Help!

    so , so far what it seems to be doing is that, when I parent any object to the bone. it shifts that object up when parenting, I dont know why. but im crossing my fingers hard that this is a bug

    Blender 2.8 binding to bones. Help!

    idk, all I did was press A to make sure everything was selected, copied it and pasted it into 2.79, they use the same file directory so. I guess it just works. not gonna complain though.

    Blender 2.8 binding to bones. Help!

    I was able to get it back into 2.79 by using the copy buffer (how it worked, I dont know) but with testing with a normal cube, it still shifts the object to where ever the hell it feels. this is rather infuruiating. doesn't help that all the damn keybinds are changed in 2.8. I have jack clue wtf they were smoking to decide to change that.
  13. i'm a hair away from dropping blender 2.8 and never coming back to it. so, all im trying to F**king to is parent to a bone. so, I parent to bone and this happens. ive cleared parents and everything, to say that im getting pissed off is putting it as an understatement. I cant even go back to 2.79. to say im already not digging this update. wtf is going on?!

    acer nitro 5 cant support gpu on battey power

    I have 0 clue honestly, im gonna try to wrangle a bios or something out of acer to fix it , it kinda stabilizes in games but is far more stable plugged in. I got this model because I wanted the 2500us igpu so I could game on the battery without killing it In half a second. (that and I prefer amd products)

    acer nitro 5 cant support gpu on battey power

    I updated the bios to its latest version and the same with the gpu driver (which stupidly Is 17.7) interstingly I did unlock wattman for the 560 with afterburner, but nothing for the igpu.
