    jooroth18 reacted to SafyreLyons-5LT in Pop-os error 23   
    I got what Error 23 is: 
    This is from one of the Pop!_OS developers. You should try reflashing the flashdrive with something like Rufus or Etcher (if you did not already). Also if that does not work try verifying checksums.

    jooroth18 reacted to 5x5 in CPU for best value (gaming and 3d modeling)   
    None - the Ryzen 5 3600 is about 190$ and is much faster than all three of those in everything.

    jooroth18 got a reaction from Falconevo in Pfsense: WTF is going on?!?!?!?!   
    The ARP hint was extremely useful to me for another issue, as i had another problem where i couldn't find my UniFi access points, as they wouldn't show up in the DHCP leases, or on the Ubiquiti discovery tool. I saw them listed in the ARP tables and i was able to enter the correct IP's into the controller. I can finally control my access points again!

    jooroth18 got a reaction from GriffGaming in What hardware does hardware encoding use exactly?   
    Software encoding uses the CPU to encode and hardware encoding uses Nvidia Cuda through NVENC. Generally, Software encoding looks much better but hardware encoding is much more efficent. Since you have a ryzen 1700, with 16 threads, just use software encoding.

    ** this post has been edited. To see the original, a post has been made below.
    *** at the time of writing this editorial, no news publisher reported on this. So I wrote an article myself, here you go...
     
    GPP, also known as Geforce Partner Program, was a “voluntary” program by nVidia that promises to help gamers make the right purpose when buying a graphics card. On nVidia’s blog post it states:
    However, Kyle Bennett, from HardOCP, wrote an article on the Geforce Partner Program, stating how it impacts consumer choice. In his editorial, he states:
    This was talked about in the press, and later in the article, Kyle conducts an interview with several AIB and OEM partners, and they have developed a similar consensus:
    The quote above were just statements on an editorial, and even though Kyle has a reputation in the industry, these statements could be taken with a grain of salt. However, most of the press have chosen to accept these statements as true. On nVidia’s blogpost, they state it is voluntary, however at the time cryptocurrency was a big hit (it still sort-of is) and GPU supply was weakened. So, if an AIB partner didn’t sign up for the Geforce Partner Program, they wouldn’t be treated by nVidia as well as a brand who did sign up for GPP. If a new run of GPUs came off the process node, the AIB’s and OEM’s that have GPP would be favored and would probably have more share than those who didn’t sign up, therefore threatening their businesses overall which really affect manufactures who rely on GPU sales primarily.
     
                    GPP affects AIB’s and OEM’s by forcing them to separate the branding that these manufactures like to use on their products. Say for example Gigabyte, they use Gaming X as their branding for both nVidia and AMD cards. With GPP, now they must remove the Gaming X brand with the AMD cards. This makes it so when a buyer types in Gaming X because he/she knows that is the high end for Gigabyte, that user will only see nVidia cards now.
     
                    Now, nVidia had pulled the plug on GPP, in their blogpost stating:
     
    So, this is good right? Not so much. In the time GPP was active, Gigabyte was ripping the Gaming X brand off AMD cards, which is an easy fix, just put the Gaming X back on. However, for ASUS, they planned to launch a new brand called AREZ for their AMD products. Now that GPP is over, ASUS must decide to keep the AREZ brand or just use the ROG brand. Since ASUS already spent time and effort to market the new brand AREZ, and they already began removing ROG branded AMD graphics cards in place for AREZ, they have to choose to keep the branding, put back the ROG branding, or use both. I speculated that they would use both, where the AREZ branded cards would be the budget-oriented cards and the ROG branded cards would be the Premium cards.
     
    It turns out, ASUS as it appears, has opted for the ROG branding only. In their twitter post recently, they stated:
    This looks great on the outside, however that has significantly impacted ASUS internally. This has now wasted the time and money that ASUS spent on marketing the new AREZ brand, stopping production of the newly branded cards, and restarting production with the old ROG branding, and now, ASUS has to figure out what to do with the AREZ branded cards. So far it looks like they aren’t selling any AREZ branded on the retail stores such as Amazon, NCIX, Newegg, Microcenter, Fry’s, and Memory Express, ( off topic side note: Memory Express doesn’t even have a mobile site. What!) are gone, so it’s up for debate on what they will do with the AREZ branded cards, let alone the money wasted on the brand.  ASUS has to deal with all this, all because nVidia wanted to get a little more market share, which they definitely needed. Overall, ASUS and Gigabyte have now effectively a way harder job on their hands thanks to the amazing Geforce Partner Program, brought to us by nVidia.

    ***************************************
    Posts from here on should coordinate with the updated post.
    **************************************
    For archival reasons, here is the original post:
    It appears after the revocation of the Republic of Gamers branding that coincided with all of ASUS's premium gaming products  on AMD GPU's, it appears that ASUS has chosen to stick with the old ROG branding. AREZ was originally intended to be a new brand for ASUS after nVidia, a compeditor to  AMD and their GPU's, unveiled a new program called GPP. Standing for Geforce Partner Program, this new "volentary" program was intended according to nVidia to "help gamers know what they are buying when shopping for Graphics Cards." Kyle from HardOCP, a reputible publisher, has uncovered the true hidden details in the contract not stated in nVidia's blog post. This was part speculation, but started to become true when asus unveiled the AREZ branding for AMD GPU's. Since all the public backlash for this potentially illegal contract, nVidia decided to kill the Geforce Partner Program, stating that "it was all because the media/press spread misleading information." ASUS has now already created the AREZ brand, so it was up to ASUS's decision weather to keep the brand or to get rid of it. As per my speculation, I suggested that ASUS use the AREZ brand for more budget products, since they already spent the marketing efforts to bring the brand out, but it looks like asus plans to get rid of it, as ASUS recently posted a marketing AD on twitter mentioning their ROG Radeon RX Vega cards. ( https://twitter.com/ASUSUSA/status/996179635158339586?s=09 ). Also on Amazon, all the AREZ branded cards are gone and there are no other cards branded AREZ. ( https://goo.gl/xQZxP4 ). This also repeats on other retail stores as well: NCI... err.... Newegg ( https://goo.gl/LXoRkN ), Fry's ( https://goo.gl/jhkDPE ), Memory Express ( https://goo.gl/u7aJ7t ) (off topic note: Memory Express dosent even have a mobile site...), Microcenter: ( https://goo.gl/5oaTJ7 ). All of the listed sites no longer have AREZ branded cards, and it appears that ASUS will be scraping the brand, even though they spent money on marketing and rebranding the products. This does have a negitive effect on ASUS as they now effectively spent money on nothing and now have to recoup that cost wasted.

    If they claim in the listing title non overclocked in bold letters. They are probably lieing. If youreally picking it up ask if you can test it in your own rig or in their rig before making the sale. Test it in game and note the fps and compare it to the benchmarks and see if they fall in the margin of error. Also check any oc utility if the settings are normal.

    @Plavi and @willp3, you have 72 hours to respond to the DMs I am sending you right now. If we do not receive a reply in that time, new winners will be chosen!

This does not mean that we're only giving away one laptop...)
     
    Thanks everyone.

    Alright, so @Plavi has officially claimed the New Blade! Congrats on winning
