  1. It's likely Alienware uses Nahimic and Dell got permission to skin over their stuff.
  2. I would imagine including HBM decreases the yield rate. Or at the very least, it doesn't allow for much flexibility. Who knows, HBM could be the future, but at the moment, I'm thinking it's only useful on the top end and will only trickle its way down once GPU designers hit a wall trying to squeeze everything they can out of GDDR. A lot of people were all "lol, nvidia, ur drunk, go home" when they saw the GTX 980 having a "measely" 256-bit bus while AMD was touting their 4096-bit HBM bus on the R9 Fury. I guess it's like they say, it's not the size of the thing, but how you use it.
  3. On the surface all it really means is an application sent a request to it and 100% means its queue is filled up. That request can be anything from "give me 4KB of data" to "give me 2GB of data". You can use Resource Manager (you can open it from Task Manager's Performance tab) in the Disk tab to see who might be trying to ping the hard drive.
  4. Well again, if you're doing your darnedest to match your frame rate to the refresh rate, GSYNC is not for you. GSYNC only helps if the performance of the game is consistently below the fresh rate. And 1440p 100 FPS doesn't appear to be very hard to achieve with the GTX 1080 Ti on the highest settings.
  5. Either photographers are trolling Ajit Pai, or they guy can't do a facial expression to save his life.

      HAHAHAHAHAHA that was a great google search

  6. If you're doing your darnedest to get your frame rate at or above the refresh rate of your monitor, GSYNC isn't for you.
  7. You can crack open the PSU and figure out out which pins go to ground and which go to the 12V rail.
  8. No they couldn't. That would require more bandwidth which would render all previous TVs unable to use the signal. The reason why PAL has a higher resolution than NTSC aside from have a lower frame rate is it has more bandwidth.
  9. Well sure, hindsight is 20/20, and NTSC was built around black and white standards while PAL was developed using color. And rather than make a new standard to screw everyone over who had a black and white TV or was going to have one (color TV appeared to not have been popular until the late 60s, probably due to cost), they did what they did with NTSC. But I agree, keeping it on a digital standard is silly. To which I ask you Europeans why are you still using 50 FPS?
  10. It seems dumb to you now, but back then it's what you'd call a clever engineering solution: I mean, maybe it's dumb now to keep it, but don't knock on it because it's a number you don't like.
  11. There's a Rec.2100, does that mean they want everyone to move to that by 2100?
  12. Goddammit. Everyone should stop polluting the ducking market with this crap.
  13. Try powercfg /requestsoverride PROCESS chrome.exe
  14. It could, but keep in mind that the only thing that would really receive a performance boost is the OS and the applications you typically run. Anything you rarely run will not have a performance boost. So if you regularly rotate playing games or something, they'll likely never see a performance boost.
  15. USB C to an external GPU only works if the USB C port supports Thunderbolt. Not all USB C ports do.
