  1. I never claimed that it did. I posed the question - "Could AMD have a trick up their sleeve that gives a performance boost to an AMD CPU/GPU combo." No claim, no statement, just a discussion question.
  2. Depends on "few" and the price/performance ratio. I've seen an overclocking attempt of the 3080 that only gained 3% and reports that the 3090 may only be as low as 10% faster than a 3090. Also consider the slight edge that Intel still has over Ryzen for gaming - is that "only a few percent"? If an AMD CPU+GPU pair is only 3% faster than an AMD CPU + NVIDIA GPU for the same price ... it may be enough to tip the scales. If an AMD CPU+GPU pair regains enough FPS to match an Intel CPU + NVIDIA GPU for a lower price ... you would get AMD and get a strong work rig If "few" is a +10% gain, well that's similar to an overclocking, without raising power supply or thermals - and I am sure people would pay extra for that. (3090 price >> 3080 price) Sometimes, that few percent will count.
  3. Humidity also equals mould. Cool and dry is your best environment. I sell Industrial PC's and we use components rated for 0% to 95% humidity, and actively advertise this as an advantage over less tropicalised competitive products that might fail in harsh environments. For your day to day PC .. probably not a a major issue in the lifetime that you will own it.
  4. So we all sit here with baited breath, wondering about AMD's CPU and GPU announcements due in October, whilst looking at the [un]available 3000 GPU's on offer from NVIDIA. I have been wondering if there may be an advantage to a full AMD combo, rather than an NVIDA/AMD pairing. My techie brain says no.... any CPU will talk to any GPU via the generic PCIe bus and there should not be any brand advantage. That said, NVIDIA was talking up RTX IO, to bypass the CPU and read directly from PCIe Gen 4 attached SSDs for faster load times. This sounds like a neat trick to build into the GPU and to take advantage of PCIe Gen 4. Given that AMD supports PCIe Gen 4 (and Intel does not) and that AMD is rumored to have "Infinity Cache" on the new GPU's to compliment the Infinity fabric on the CPU's which NVIDA will not have, it makes me wonder what tricks they may come up with to support a full team red system? Could AMD squeeze out a few extra % of performance when pairing AMD CPU with AMD GPU over any other combination?
  5. It is important to remember that Cas Latency is measured in Cycles, not time, so a higher CL number is not bad, if you have the clock speed to make up for it. The latency (in nano seconds) is Cas Latency in cycles / Command speed in Hz * 1000 noting that for DDR Ram, Command Speed = Clock Speed / 2 Using the example above from Fasauceome we get: CL19@4000Hz has latency of 19 / (4000/2) * 1000 = 9.5ns CL18@3600Hz has latency of 18 / (3600/2) * 1000 = 10ns This makes the DDR4-4000 CL19 just that little bit faster
  6. Hi Linus and Team, Here in Australia we are about to go through the switch from school based learning to online learning. My kids (aged 10 & 11) have made the switch and, since I am a techie, its been pretty easy. I bought them a PC each, 3 years ago, and they are very comfortable with working online. I also gave them web cams, and OBS so that they can make their own videos, which usually means mimicking their favourite YouTubers. As part of the online learning, their teachers have set some tasks that require the students to work in pairs, so the webcams, and the kids comfort with using them have come in very handy. Sadly, many kids do not have a techie parent to help them at this time. I thought of possibly doing a video on advice on getting started with online learning, but really, I do not have the resources, nor the fame to spread this message as wide as it needs. What this idea needs is someone like you. Helpful advice to parents could be: - Choices on a budget PC for kids to use, vs perhaps, a iPad/tablet - Setting up a non admin user account on Windows for a child to use - How to set up a webcam for collaboration to keep in touch with teachers and friends (socialising is an important part of school) - Online safety tips (sitting near kids and watching them like a hawk, not sharing passwords, stranger danger etc) - a health check for your home network - isyour wifi password secure? Maybe some of the advice is not your specialty, but the PC and networking part certainly is. As for any details you lack, I am sure that schools near you would be happy to share information with you on the latest cybersafe practices for school aged children. They might also share the link to any video you make to a new group of potential subscribers. Anyway, I hope that I have sown the seed of an Idea for you, and wish you and the team at LTT a safe isolation period Regards Craig
