    Slow and high ping connection

    I'm really sorry, and I had to look that up (I've heard of AT&T, due to part of my childhood being in the US, but not of the U-Verse branding), but I had meant what speed are you paying for, as in, what package do you pay for? For example, here we are paying for a 40Mbt/s download, 3Mbt/s upload plan.

    While I do not 100% agree with you, unfortunately many things are now dictated by fashion, without any care for the truth.

    Slow and high ping connection

    Sorry. Long story short, replace your WiFi adapter as soon as possible, since drivers for Realtek WiFi are so horrible it's not worth even looking at products that utilize it (such as your WiFi adapter). If you do this, I cannot recommend enough the Fenvi+Intel combo I had listed. And regardless of whether you go WiFi or ethernet, I'd recommend you to get either the Xiaomi Mi 3G or the D-Team NeWifi D2 (probably the NeWifi D2, to make things less complicated) for the network range extender, and immediately replacing the operating system on whichever of the two you buy, since this way you will get much better performance. I just saw the PCIe adapter you had posted, and there is next to no difference between it and the Fenvi+Intel option, aside from the Fenvi+Intel option giving you more bang for the buck. Update: Yeah, the Asus option gives you next to no benefit over the Fenvi+Intel combo (the adapter itself is practically the same, and the card is older (8260 vs. 9260). Update2: Never mind, it appears that Fenvi's Amazon store is not as complete as their AliExpress store, so the Intel 9260 (and the 8260 as well, for that matter), is nowhere to be found, so go for the Asus option, since it's price is low enough to be worth it, and has very good antannaes to boot. By the way, what network speed are you paying for?
  4. Correct, that is what I had seen on all "s" variants

    No wonder your connection is so bad, your adapter is using a Realtek chipset (RTL8811AU), which only supports up to 150Mbts on Wireless-N, and up to 433Mbts (though in reality not more than 200) on Wireless-AC). Realtek's drivers though are horrible, and unless you have a very powerful PC (yes, they put load on the CPU), you will probably not get anywhere close it's rated speed. https://wikidevi.com/wiki/EDUP_EP-AC1607 My advice, buy a Fenvi FV-102 M.2 to PCIe adapter and either a Intel Wireless-AC 9260 or a Intel WiFi 6 AX200 (more expensive, supports WiFi 6/Wireless-AX, not needed at this stage). The Intel Wireless-AC 9260 supports 2x2 MultiMIMO, as opposed to the RTL8811AU's 1x1 SIMO, which allows it to support up to 300Mbt/s on Wireless-N, and up to 1.73Gbt/s on Wireless-AC (using 160Mhz bands). The Intel WiFi 6 AX200 is pretty much the same, except that it supports up to 600Mbt/s on 2.4Ghz Wireless-AX, and up to 2.4Gbt/s on 5Ghz Wireless-AX. Both have Bluetooth 5, if you care about it. As for the extender, you're better of with either a Xiaomi Mi 3G or a D-Team NeWifi D2 (also known as NeWifi3), they all use Mediatek, however the Mi 3G and the NeWifi D2 have a better one, plus they cover a wider area, with higher speeds (Netgear EX2700 - 300Mbts on Wireless N, Mi 3G/NeWifi D2 - 300Mbts on Wireless N and 866Mbts on Wireless AC). Just make sure you first flash OpenWrt on the NeWifi, or X-Wrt (for now) on the Mi 3G. Edit: In any case you should get one of the routers I had posted, since they support up to 1 Gbt/s ethernet (probably not applicable to internet speeds, but has less chance of being a bottleneck), as opposed to the 100Mbt/s on the Netgear EX2700.
  6. A follow up on Linux compatibility (if you are interested), AMD, with their newer GPUs, generally have better compatibility than NVidia on Linux, though NVidia should have solid performance once you install their closed-source drivers. With NVidia, the issues are mainly moving to newer software (such as from X-Server to Wayland, etc.), due to them trying to force their own frameworks as opposed to working together with the community.
  7. ROCm is AMD's OpenCL platform for their GPUs. You could call it something like an OpenCL library (except that it does not replace the standard libraries).
  8. Sometimes you can get better support on other distros. I personally use Solus, though you try Ubuntu or Arch, if you wish.

    A bit of a problem

    Yeah, Q-Flash it is. My recommendation, put the file (after you extract it) on the root of the flashdrive, and boot the computer with the flashdrive already connected.
  10. Yeah, hardware support on Linux could vary from unusable, to way better than you could ever expect on Windows, depending on the level of support from the manufacturer, and/or from the community.

    A bit of a problem

    Than you definitely need to upgrade the firmware. No need for an external site, you just need to start the built-in firmware upgrade utility (should be something like F8, though I do not remember by heart) and navigate to the file. Possibly, it may also appear in the firmware (BIOS/UEFI) settings. If you can wait, say 6 hours or so, I should be able to verify on my sister's computer (GA-H77-D3H Rev.1.2).
  12. While I am far from an expert, It appears that you had gotten some models that were problematic from the start (as in, that got bad support). And have you tried Linux? AMD's OpenCL performance (and general performance) there is way better with the newer GPUs than on Windows. I'm not an owner of A Radeon VII, so I cannot say anything about it, however at least on Linux, it would appear to be working pretty well. I'm also pretty sure that you could get more accurate answers than mine over on Phoronix, especially since Michael Larabel (the owner of Phoronix) himself has one (though his specific unit appears to be a faulty one).

    A bit of a problem

    Correct. I'm surprised it is not labeled "beta", but it shouldn't matter. What version are you on right now? As for the server, the only difference will be in the network speed. Looking at the other thread, you shouldn't be getting video from the iGPU when the dGPU is connected, regardless of the "Init first" setting, since the iGPU is disabled in such a scenario. The only way for that setting to be relevant, would be if you had turned on the "Multi-GPU" (or something like it) on.

    A bit of a problem

    You need to update the firmware (BIOS/UEFI), with the latest version (should appear as "beta"). The RX series require a newer UEFI version to function. And updating the firmware is not as risky as you think, so long as you understand what you are doing. My recommendation, when updating the firmware, make sure to do a "full" upgrade (Gigabyte has some odd naming in the firmwares).

    Unsual Radeon HD 7570 with 4GB GDDR5

    It's been quite a while, however a (possibly final) update: My card has become defective, with the card no longer properly recognizing monitors (and keeping the maximum resolution at 1280x768p), and DVI not working at all anymore. Note, my motherboard may have also become defective, since I am having RTC issues, which no amounts of firmware resets or reflashes (even via recovery flashing) change, so I do not think that the GPU is the cause (it may, but I do not think so). So for the time being, I am back on iGPU, and temporarily, also a different motherboard (MSI H61M-P31/W8, with an i3-3220).
