  1. Just had this issue start on my new G502 Hero, a mouse I bought to replace the G903 which has a known issue with cheap, faulty switches. Logitech striek again with their $100+ mouse and 2c Chinese switches... refunding via Amazon and getting a Razer. In case anyone is wondering, this is the 3rd Logitech product line I've had this issue on, and I'm not the only one. Their support forums are filled with people, and had even more threads before their forum wipe. G502 Proteus Core G903 Lightspeed G502 Hero
  2. Hi folks, long time lurker but I've been trying to (not?) justify upgrading my 1st gen Ryzen 1800x (3.7GHz) to a 3900x or 3950x. While I can understand that you want the highest possible single core clock speed for gaming, along with a moderate amount of cores, I still wonder how that actually affects modern gaming when you are paired with a decent GPU (2800 Super here). So my 1800x is never ever capped on any core with any game. Even in RDR2 right now it sits around 40% overall with the main thread core possibly reaching 60%, but none are ever capped. I'm seeing all these gaming benchmarks floating around comparing current-gen CPUs (on the same mobo/ram/gpu) and they clearly show a FPS increase as the clock and core count go up, but why is this? None of them are going anywhere near 50% utilisation on any of the cores so why does this matter? Can anyone provide a guide or something that I can read that explains why clock/core count matters for gaming even when not under full load? Thanks!
