    KaitouX got a reaction from Bombastinator in How to tell whether a GPU is new or has been used before   
    If it's cheap and you can test it properly, why not? It's not like proper mining is any worse than gaming for the GPU.
     
    Also make sure you're getting it actually for a good price, for example if it costs around the same as a 2070 Super it isn't a good deal.

    KaitouX reacted to Streetguru in 1080P under $300   
    For only $30 I'd just get the 5600 Xt
     
    but the extended warranties are a scam, either a GPU will break in the first month and the manufacturer will replace it, or it will run fine for years.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Origami Cactus in blue light filtered glasses as everyday wear   
    Not really sure, I think it was Zeiss but it might be other as I had some issues and exchanged the lenses multiple times before I got the ones on the glasses I'm currently using.

    Mostly the same here, but personally the color shift is pretty noticeable for me, it is like going from the Medium Color temperature setting to almost the Warm setting on my Sony TV(I used it to compare how much it changed). It doesn't annoy much, but i end up "correcting" the color shift on the display by making it slightly cooler.

    KaitouX got a reaction from ajmcals in How can i use my rx560x as my main gpu instead of the vega 8 graphics   
    I don't think that would apply to a Laptop(at least that was what appeared when I searched "Acer Nitro 5").
    Not really sure how Laptops do the change though, sometimes i think the software from the manufacturer will do it but not sure. Turning off completely would likely not be that good for the battery life so there should be some way to toggle between the Vega and the 560.

    KaitouX got a reaction from LinkXXDD in Intel and AMD don’t want you to know this… (but your old computer is still fine)   
    Almost all i7 are still good in general, but the issue is everything below it are nowhere near as good, old i3s and (some)i5s suffer in a lot of heavier tasks, and the i7 upgrades often cost way more than what they're worth.
     
    It doesn't make sense to pay so much for a 7700 when you can get a Ryzen 3300X+Motherboard or Intel 10th gen spec equivalent for the same price. Unless you can get a 7700 for under 150 I would say it isn't worth it.
    For ~$160 the 1650 Super is faster, uses less power and is new, but usually the 970 is closer to $100 and even then there are better used options near $100, it isn't even close to being worth $150+.
     
    If you want MH:W to run better the first step would be to upgrade the GPU, and decide if you need other upgrades as you go. There's a chance you would need to upgrade the RAM and maybe the CPU, but that could be after the GPU(and maybe PSU).

    KaitouX got a reaction from kewtz in What’s the extra CPU?   
    As example to help a bit more, here how it looks to watch Youtube at 4k(Linus video so not 60 fps), watch a 1080p video on MPV and video chat on discord and some other things in the background at the same time on a 4790K stock which is slower than the Ryzen 3 3100:
     
    As you can see it basically any modern 4c/8t should do it pretty easily, even more if you aren't playing videos at 4k as dropping the resolution drops the usage too(around 10% from 4k to 1080p, and 1440p60 videos uses around the same amount as 4k30). If you really want to go overkill something like the Ryzen 5 3600 or Intel i5 10400(if you need iGPU) would be more than enough.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Fasauceome in RX 570 vs GTX 970   
    Don't use userbenchmark, I would say that the 570 is better, it is slightly slower on average but newer games that use newer APIs(DX12/Vulkan) will often work much better on it than on the 970, it got actually 4GB of VRAM(and not 3,5) and it's cheaper. Also you should be able to find one for less than $90 quite easily(in the US at least), other options that might be worth looking for are the RX480(faster than both) and RX470(slightly slower than the 570) that would perform close to each other while being cheaper.

    Nvidia Maxwell drivers aren't really better than AMD Polaris ones.

    I don't think that there's a better 4K monitor than a OLED TV in the market currently(if you don't mind the problems when using a OLED TV as monitor).

    KaitouX got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in Free video editing for extremely basic stuff   
    I never used it so not sure on how easy it is to use but OpenShot and Olive might be worth trying, and Blender can also work as video editor but it isn't that friendly to someone that isn't familiar with it.

    KaitouX got a reaction from thechinchinsong in Intel Core i9-10900K Stressed, Package Power Reads 235W, Temperatures 93°C   
    lol
     
    The i5-10600K would be decent if it was closer to the 3600X and not almost the same as the 3700X pricing wise. At least it isn't just bad like previous i5 were due to the lack of HT.

    KaitouX got a reaction from 5x5 in Intel Core i9-10900K CPU Flagship Review ""Leaks"" Out -Wccftech (Much salt needed)   
    What? Does Intel have something better than the Ryzen 9 3950X or than the Threadripper 3990X that I don't know about?
     
    If by this you mean multi-core applications, they are pretty common for people that require fast CPUs in the consumer space, which are for example: Video Encoding/Rendering, 3D Modeling/Rendering, Compiling, Encryption, Simulations, Image Editing, Compression/Decompression, Gaming, all which often can use multiple cores well, with the ones that don't being often(but not always) due to development limitations and not limitations on the activity itself.
    AMD currently offers the same(~5% or less difference) performance or higher at basically all applications, while costing the same or less. Intel current CPUs just aren't competitive with the AMD ones for most users.
     
    Also as far as I know most of the planned fastest supercomputers to be built in the next few years are using Epyc.

    KaitouX reacted to leadeater in Intel Core i9-10900K CPU Flagship Review ""Leaks"" Out -Wccftech (Much salt needed)   
    Mmmm no not really, gaming is the minority workload more than anything else. If that is your use case then that is what you actually need to be looking at but in the good at one thing right now that is Intel and gaming.
     
    If you do almost anything else AMD is faster and often at a lower cost, also not just talking about video rendering.
     
    You have to take a balance of tests to look at a wider picture which many reviews are doing and right now Intel leads in very few of them. Here's the thing about those other workloads however, things that are not video rendering, are for the user not that big of difference for almost any CPU from either AMD or Intel as the load profiles and the way you actually use the application mean almost anything on the market will give you an excellent user experience. That means unless you do have the need for the extra performance you should be buying the most cost effective option that gives the most broad performance, today that is AMD Ryzen 3000 series.
     
    Intel K series CPU and their top models is only a very small sub section of the entire market and only a very small portion of Intel's product stacks, just because the 9900K has the best gaming performance doesn't actually mean products below that from Intel will actually be better than AMD options for gaming either. And it sure as heck does not mean Intel has a wider and more broad performance for their products either.
     
    Practically speaking right now you could buy almost any CPU from Intel or AMD and be very happy with it for at least 3 years with no significant performance issues.

    KaitouX got a reaction from SpaceGhostC2C in Nvidia hit with a new class-action lawsuit over misrepresenting crypto-mining sales to investors   
    The issue is that Nvidia said the sales weren't from the mining boom. The investors and Nvidia knew that mining would get smaller, that's why allegedly Nvidia lied to the investors saying that mining wasn't the source of the sales.

    KaitouX reacted to Mateyyy in Rx 5700 or RTX 2060 super   
    They're practically identical in terms of performance. Depending on the game, either the 2060S will edge out the 5700, or the other way around.
    I'd say go for the one that has the better feature set for you, or the one that's cheaper.
  20. Agree
    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in Rx 5700 or RTX 2060 super   
    Where you got that 20%? As far as I see it is 10~15% on average(TechSpot, Techpowerup, ComputerBase, etc) with most closer to 10%.
  21. Agree
    KaitouX got a reaction from Mateyyy in Rx 5700 or RTX 2060 super   
    The 590 is barely faster than the 1650S while costing more (in most countries) and using a lot more energy, and for the price of the RX590 the 1660/1660S are usually better. The 5500XT is just bad when compared to the Nvidia options.
     
    On topic: It's helpful if you could add where people can look at pricing, there might be other options that are a better deal, but basing on the "390€ RX5700 Red Devil or 380€ RTX2060S IGame Ultra" I would say that the 2060S is better as it is faster and cheaper, even though the cooler is likely worse, in most countries the 5700XT would be cheaper than the 2060S, but if Serbia it isn't then the 2060S seems the better option.
     
    Also what happened to the 2060 in your signature? If this is supposed to be a upgrade than don't do it, it isn't worth it.

    KaitouX reacted to porina in B550 Motherboard specs released & AM4 for Ryzen Gen 3   
    This slide seems to be giving some confusion. This is the minimum official support. If you have chipset and CPU combinations outside of this, it is up to the mobo manufacturer to support beyond that.
     
    I think I saw reference to the bios size limitations that already exist. A smaller bios chip to keep costs down will result in having to choose which CPUs to support or not. So lower cost B550 boards might be limited to Zen 2 only. More expensive ones might support further back.

    The "market" that you're talking about would also "accept" a $10000 GPU, but that doesn't make it any less stupid. The market isn't only the people that are willing to get ripped off btw.

    I'm pretty sure the market that the 2080Ti was aimed at (enthusiast gamers) wouldn't absorb a $10K GPU.  I'm not sure you understand what's at play here.
