    KarathKasun got a reaction from 5x5 in FX8350 low performance on Linux need help   
    And you are still comparing a 3ghz (sub 3ghz in some of those graphs) part to a 4ghz part.  Proving my point.
    Oh, would you look at that, in those benchmarks, the performance delta is almost EXACTLY the same as the clock delta.  And there are faster C2Q chips you can pick up from the Xeon line of chips.  Up to 3.4ghz.  And they OC to the 4.4ghz range, resulting in a total performance difference of ~10% in ST OC to OC testing.  In MT, 2x E5450's keep up with the 8350 without overclocking.
     
    Memory bandwidth is a pure synthetic, and the other numbers prove it.
     
    Westmere was not much faster than Core 2, it was primarily brought about to integrate the cores into a single die and address memory bandwidth.  It didnt need to be significantly faster per core or per clock.

    Last I tried, you cant install drivers for Terrascale alongside GCN as they use the same file names.  You have to pick one device or the other.

    KarathKasun reacted to SolarNova in Is this 'normal' for a LED monitor?   
    Sounds like a its an older cheap TN monitor. They have truly terrible viewing angles. Sit back further from the screen and try to be a spot on in front of it as possible. By which i mean don't be looking down or up at it or from side to side, be dead straight on.
     
    FYI LED and LCD are the same. LED was used as marketing to refer to the type of backlight used when it was new. Older LCD's used CCFL backlights, then they introduced LED ones. Nowadays all LCD use LED, so all LCD monitors and TV technically are LED. LED refers to the backlight though, they are still LCD displays.
     
    The difference between displays is the panel type ..or LCD type. you have 3. TN , VA, and IPS.

    Idle temps are kinda odd right now with Ryzen 3000 series.  If you dont see above 70c, you are fine.

    Just leave it for now.  The fix will be in a BIOS/Firmware update more than likely.

    There is not a half installed state.  Its either installed properly or not, if its not it doesnt work at all.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from LienusLateTips in AM4 Servers - Are they Worth it?   
    The Dynatron is rataed to 95w, it will function fine on a 65w CPU.  The Noctua is probably the best choice though.
     
    Water in 1U is... 100% unnecessary.  Ive setup and installed a fair number of dual socket 1u systems with 2x80w CPUs in them.  They used simple passive copper heatsinks and 4x dual stage 40mm fans blowing across the CPU/memory area of the board.  CPU temps never exited the low 80c range with 100% synthetic load.

    Err, what are they talking about with coolers?  3600 pulls less power than the 6700 and has a better in box cooler.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from TechyBen in Trying to not hate Linux   
    IMHO, Linux is a crapshoot on any laptop that uses anything but integrated graphics.  NV Optimus makes running Linux nearly impossible if you want to use your GPU.

    KarathKasun reacted to Bartholomew in Does downgrading GPU reduce CPU bottleneck and help performance?   
    As usual "it depends"; if staying at same resolution, yes.
     
    But getting faster gpu could for example allow monitor upgrade from 1080p to for example 1440p (or ultrawide, or both), making cpu and gpu more balanced again, keeping same framerate from cpu without losing framerate due to slower gpu. In that case it aint lost money since it allows resolution upgrade keeping same fps.

    Ok thanks, I was thinking about downgrading my GPU because of CPU bottleneck for a long time, but now I know that there is no reason to do that.

    LOL, no.  There re cheap meters that wont kill you, and in fact... Fluke makes a capacitive meter that WILL kill you if you happen to touch the capacitive terminal while using its other features.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from shark7760 in My 5 year old, high end-ish rig is still quite relevant today. WTH, manufacturers ?!?   
    Because we hit a plateau of "feels faster" for daily tasks around 2012.
     
    If you do any compute intensive work, there have been pretty massive increases in performance.
     
    Games do not really count as intense work for a CPU anymore.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Hackentosher in Should I buy a Fluke Clamp Multimeter   
    Only buy Fluke gear if you are making money with it.  There are much cheaper alternatives that are "good enough".

    KarathKasun got a reaction from Infensus in Weird electric shocks from iMac and studio gear   
    You could manually ground that instrument to earth ground, and that would fix the issue (connect the ground of the audio/midi interface to earth ground).  Finding ground faults is a daunting task on any room sized installation of gear, patching them up can be even more of a pain.

    Your studio does not have a proper earth ground.
     
    Electrically Earth and neutral are tied together in the electrical distribution box where they both go to earth ground.  Some lazy people will take this to mean that you can just use neutral as a ground at the outlet, except this will allow a person or other equipment to become the shortest path to ground when power is applied.
     
    Thankfully, the loop back to the distribution box has a lower resistance/impedance, you only get a tingle instead of a full force shock.  HOWEVER, if you happen to directly touch the case and something grounded, you can receive a fatal shock.

    KarathKasun got a reaction from SenKa in Getting my old as dirt 5.25" floppy drive working on a modern computer   
    I grew up in that era.  The only limitation is the BIOS in the computer having the code to read from either disk format.  The fundamental signaling schema is pretty much the same, the structure of the data on the disks is different.
     
    In modern PC's the BIOS doesnt need to do anything, as all of that is now software layer level instead of firmware level AFAIK.
