  1. THIS IS INCORRECT. If you are using an Intel build, you will need a fourth generation Core processor-- so Haswell, or better.
  2. I don't see why not, it worked with a ryzen 3 2200G. There may be a pcie bottleneck if it only supports 8 lanes, which was a problem with the 2200G and is why I switched to an Intel build instead. Double check how many lanes the 3200G has available, I can't recall off the top of my head.
  3. Well... sorry, I guess? Both builds were absolutely Win10, as I haven't touched Win 8 for three or so years now. I wasn't claiming to find out anything revolutionary, I was only providing statistics between an Intel and Ryzen build.
  4. It sounds like a hardware problem. DDU your nvidia drivers. Check to make sure your P106 is powered and its fans are spinning, and maybe re-seat it on the PCIE slot.
  5. That's right, 4th generation Intel Core or higher. I used a Gigabyte card with my own minor overclocking and it works fine.
  6. I did not. I was using Windows 10 for both builds.
  7. I'm gonna bump this old thread. A while back I built a Ryzen 3 2200G build using this card, and used it for a handful of games like Apex, PUBG, and R6S, but in the end I decided it was too much of a headache and switched to an RX580. I strongly believed that it was being held back by the 8x lanes afforded by the Ryzen processor. Since then, my P106 has been collecting dust. Well, I've moved recently and left my old PC behind and I decided to bring my P106 with me. I bought an old Dell Optiplex 9020 and through a real feat of engineering, managed to get the P106 working with it. It's not pretty, but it works. Anyway, I re-ran my Heaven benchmark and it does indeed seem to improve on the scores I attained on the Ryzen build. So, keep that in mind, y'all. Ryzen 3 2200G results: Intel i5-4570 results:
  8. Yes, it's been said about a hundred times in this thread, you need a fourth generation Intel CPU or higher.
  9. You'll probably want to go with a 2400G or higher. I can't tell if it's because of a PCIE bottleneck or if it's just a CPU bottleneck, but a card like the P106 should be easily capable of handling games like Insurgency Sandstorm and Monster Hunter World at 60fps. However, my frames hovered around 40-45 for both titles while using a 2200G. Again, I'm not sure if it's a PCIE bottleneck, or if it's being bottlenecked by my CPU performance. Changing my P106 to an RX580 did not improve my frames for either title, so I'm going to assume that it's the base CPU that's the problem.
  10. You can download 3Dmark and compare them to my results, which I attained with a 2200G-- the bottleneck is real, and you should get far better results than me. You could also run some Heaven benchmarks, I have them lying around somewhere too.
  11. I've been having computer lockups every once in a while where the whole computer will fail. The screen would freeze, all audio will stop, and the computer becomes non-responsive. The computer has to be hard-reset. I was wondering if any of y'all get the same issue. It always happens when I'm in the middle of a game, so I'm pretty certain it's a P106 problem. I'm still on 416.34, and I should probably update to 417.22, but I wanted to know if I was the only one getting this problem.
  12. You're going to need a 4th generation or higher chip, my friend.
  13. I would install the Intel driver first. Make sure your iGPU is set as the primary GPU in your mobo's BIOS.
  14. Here, lemme know if this works, I have like a bajillion of them. nv_dispi.inf nvaci.inf
  15. I'm using 416.34, I was able to get the nVidia control panel to show up both when modifying the drivers as per Linus' original video, and as per the Chinese github instructions that I had shared ages ago in this thread. IIRC you were the one that was modifying the driver right alongside me when we were first figuring this stuff out, haha.
