  1. Hi all, I have been encountering this glitch for over 2 months now, and it appears totally random to me and can be fixed with one or two refreshes. However it is getting very annoying, and not only happens to YouTube but also Google Slides presentation. Does anyone encountered a similar issue before? Whenever I press fullscreen, the page just turns like this, with blurry text and buttons as if they were enlarged, and video also look lower quality. Same will happen for Google Slides. Searching on google did not return anything valuable. I did not update or modify any driver when this issue started and even updating both intel and nvidia's driver till latest did not help anything. My system: Lenovo Leigon Y7000 2019 laptop i7-9750H 16GB DDR4 1TB SSD GTX 1650 1080p 60hz 15.6inch screen Windows 20H2 19042.423 (Insider slow ring) I do have an adblocker named Adguard installed as a chrome extensive but even removing them did not help anything. I tried reinstalling chrome also did not help. Chrome is updated from the settings page.
  2. Im looking at 4K 100Mbps H265 footages, that's probably the most demanding ones. Besides, I plan to use After Effects for simple motion graphics for a youtube channel intro. How will you say about the impact of installing the OS onto the slower 1TB driver instead? Does the extra speed that 970 provides matter for OS?
  3. I'm building a system mainly for video editing mainly using Adobe suit and Davinci Resolve, and photo editing using Lightroom. I bought two SSDs, one is 500GB Samsung 970 Evo Plus, another is 1TB ADATA GAMMIX S11 Lite (dont worry if you cant find this model on Google - will explain that below) My current plan is to install the OS and softwares onto the 970, and dump video files and photos onto the S11 Lite. However I read that the media scratch disks for the cache of preview files should be on the fastest drive that the OS is not installed onto. I am in a dilemma now on deciding which drive should I use for scratch disk and installation of OS and softwares? Does it really matter for scratch disk to be the same drive as the OS and software drive? And another related question, I know that the sequential read/write speed is not very meanful to daily usage snappiness and responsiveness, but which benchmark result should I be looking that actually matters? Is it 4K read speed or IOPS or what? Thank you Regarding the 1TB ADATA GAMMIX S11 Lite, it is aprantly a China only model that's why you cant find it on ADATA's offical english website, but it is indeed on its Chinese website so its definitely a legit model. The website stats are: 3D TLC with SLC cache PCIe Gen 3 X4 Read: 2000MB/s Write: 1600MB/s 4K IOPS Read/Write: 188K/156K 5 year warranty or 600TBW In case you need, my motherboard is MSI B550M Mortar, it has two M.2 SSD slots with one of them being gen 4. CPU is 3700x, gpu is rtx 2060 super.
  4. Well maybe it dont matter for PCs, but for a laptop with really weak iGPU, it do matter. The 30% fps increase is on their offcial product page and also tested by my friend in League of Legends, where fps increase by more than 40. However, the thing is I cant be sure whether this benefits all apps or only some full screen games.
  5. Hi, I saw on lenovo webiste that their Leigon Y7000 series supports this thing called Dual Direct GFX, which allows the user to switch between iGPU output to screen and Nvidia GPU output to screen. They claim that with a straight connect from Nvidia GPU to the screen, they can get up to 30% fps increase in games, due to bypassing the Intel iGPU copying performance loss. However has anyone tried it for video editing and exporting, and does it help also? I'm not concerned about the gaming fps increase as I dont game at all, but I do 4K HEVC video editing. Google searching it returns no valuable results. Thanks a lot!
  6. Hi all, I'm looking to buy a laptop that I will be using for mostly 4K video editing, the most I will do is color grading and very light After Effects, and I wont touch RAW video, frenquent photo editing in Lightroom, and very light games (league of legends). Besides those, I also watch 4KHDR blue ray rips that are 50GB+ per file. Due to some reason, I have to use the laptop as a blue ray player and have it HDMI connected to a 4K OLED TV. On my old laptop, it can play back such videos with a bit of lag, but once connected to the TV, it became so laggy that its unplayable. Thus I would also like to ensure that the specs im looking at is sufficient for it. I'm upgrading from a HP Pavilion 15 with 6700HQ and GTX 960M. I have a budget of 1500SGD, and I can buy from reputatable retailers from China which are typically 200-400SGD cheaper than local market, therefore feel free to recommand me models that are slightly above my budget as I may be able to get it below 1500SGD in china. Currently, I have locked on a few models. Lenovo Leigon Y7000: i7-9750H, GTX 1650 4GB, 2x8GB 2666 RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD at 1548SGD Dell G3 3590: i7-9750H, GTX 1650 4GB, 2x8GB 2666 RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD 1465SGD HP Omen 15: i7-9750H, GTX 1650 4GB, 2x8GB 2666 RAM, 256GB NVMe SSD + 1TB 5400rpm HDD 1485SGD My max weight perference is 2.3KG. No perference of brands but I do plan to use it for at least 3 years so I need a durable laptop. I live in Singapore so major brands should have their service centers here. From what I researched, the Dell G3 series has very bad cooling, and the Lenovo Y7000 has the best cooling, and HP Omen sits close to Lenovo. Anyone who has experience with these models that can kindly confirm this for me? A small question: is 5400rpm hard drive much slower than 7200rpm? I cant find any laptop within my specs and budget that runs on a 7200rpm HDD. I currently have a 7200rpm and after 3+ years of usage, it is very very slow. According to UserBenchmark, my HDD is at the last 7% of all the same models... Also, is it worth for my use case to buy a GTX 1060 and a i7 8750H instead? I can get the Acer Aspire Nitro with 8750H and GTX 1060, 16GB RAM and 512G SSD+1TB HDD for 1465SGD. I read that the NVENC chip in GTX 1650 is the same as GTX 1060, and it is not the upgraded turing chip, which I am not sure if it matters to me. I uses Adobe Premiere and export 4K videos using NVENC (through Voukoder) on my current laptop, which is blazing fast compared to intel's quick sync. However, is the generation gap in CPU worth it for the extra performance of GPU? Also, does the new turing NVENC chip matters a lot to my use case? It wouldn't be wayy out my budget to get an GTX 1660Ti, but given that the games I play can run smoothly on a 960M, I doubt the need to upgrade the GPU. Also, anyone knows or heard when Intel will release a H-series grade 10th gen CPU, or is it worth to get an i7 u series CPU, namly 10710U for my use case? I have to get the new laptop by end of december this year so I doubt I could wait for 10th gen H-series. I saw benchmarks and there is definitely gap between this and the 9750H, however I'm interested in the usage of AI and DL Boost technology which from what I know, Lightroom actively uses it. How much performance gain can I get from these techs, and is it worth to compensate for the loss over 9750H? Should I wait for GTX 1660 non-Ti on laptops, or is Nvidia not even gonna make it at all? To me 1660Ti is surely overkill for gaming, but Im really interested in that new Turing NVENC chip. I'm sorry if I cramped too much questions into 1 thread, but most of them are sort of linked so I thought it would be better if I list out my current questions together. Thanks for reading!
