  1. Tech Companies move to limit GDPR exposure

    If this is the case and FB knows this, aren't they shooting themselves in the foot right now? I'm an EU citizen, so these GDPR rules apply to me, does this mean the EU could theoretically sue FB for not following these rules and force them to do so anyway?
  2. AMD's official "eff you GPP" response: A Gamer's Choice

    AMD can't open source what isn't theirs. The PSP is an ARM SOC with ARM code so if there's anyone that should be open sourcing stuff it's ARM, not AMD.
  3. Crashing on heavy load: GPU faulty or PSU giving troubs?

    Ok so I ran Heaven with a static cam on lots of moving things, then ran OCCT on all threads. The entire CPU, so cores and SOC, is pulling around 150W. Put the Vega on a +50 power budget to get it pulling 205W (on powersaving BIOS). FPS was stable at 105, OCCT didn't crash, system stayed responsive the entire time. Then again, I'll try again tomorrow when it could be a completely different story.

    0:31 DELL AND HP AIN'T DOWN WITH THE GPP - PCPERSPECTIVE as a title on the TV screen damn son
  5. Crashing on heavy load: GPU faulty or PSU giving troubs?

    Ok, stop using FurMark, got it. To the uninstall button we go. I'll try running Heaven with a CPU load as well trying to trigger the problem. If it does, I'll update.
  6. Scenario: stress-testing CPU and GPU causes the AMD driver to crash. When it recovers, the GPU stress test (any, FurMark, Superposition, Valley, etc) stopped entirely but the CPU happily continues crunching numbers. Setup: I have a Ryzen 1600 at 3.8 GHz, 1.25V that's survived a 4 hour pass of LinPack via OCCT aka it's stable at that speed. RAM's at 2933 1.4 V that's also stable, all on an ASRock AB350 Gaming ITX/ac with the latest P4.50 BIOS. My MSI reference Vega 56 though, that's a different story. As soon as that gets thrown into the mix, even at stock profile in Wattman, the system will pull along for a couple of minutes at most, if I'm not moving the mouse that is (but even if I don't it will generally crash within a couple of minutes). As soon as I even look at the mouse, the screen freezes, goes black for a couple of seconds and when it comes back the driver has crapped the bed. But as soon as I keep the CPU at rest and stress the GPU alone the system stays intact, mostly. I say mostly because it really depends on the mood my system's in. Sometimes it crashes as soon as load is put onto the GPU but most of the time it keeps running for hours and hours without a single issue. My PSU is a Corsair SF600. I've been wanting to swap that out for something quieter as the fan doesn't return to zero RPM when there's no more load on the PSU making it quite load in the process, but I only wanna do that if it also means it'll solve my GPU issues. I don't wanna RMA my GPU that much because a: it's an MSI model and I can't find any RMA info on their site other than "contact retailer" but more importantly b: I bought the Vega 56 from LDLC.com, a French site, because it was the only place selling MSRP Vega 56 in the EU (I'm Dutch) at launch. Sending it back would mean risky over-the-border shipments with a we-no-speak-english company with no guarantee they'll even have a replacement unit in stock meaning I'd be stuck with no GPU at all. I also don't have a 2nd GPU at hand that I could test with which also isn't nice. So what do I do here?
  7. sausy sauce: https://gaming.radeon.com/en/radeon-a-gamers-choice/ Asus is first with the AREZ lineup live: https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/AREZ-Series-Products/ So rather than locking in partners with non-industry standard crap and limiting customer choice AMD's all like "hey, we open sourced this stuff, enjoy it". And now they're doing the same with GPU branding, kinda like GPP, but without forcing manufacturers to join in or face the lack of supplies and marketing and whatnot. It's the official and kind "fuck off GPP" response from AMD. "No anti-gamer / anti-competitive strings attached." sums it up best.
  8. Hey look no flashy BS RGB but actual good-looking cards. Now waiting for a Vega version...
  9. Random color crash

    Get DDU and uninstall all drivers. Then grab the latest from the nVidia site and install those, run Unigine Superposition. FurMark is very taxing on your GPU, you can run it but you'd see temperatures that you won't normally see and it stresses the GPU in a way games usually don't. If there's another insta-crash, it might be good to RMA the GPU. Your PSU isn't of the highest quality but you have a 1050Ti on it. That thing sips on power so it shouldn't stress the PSU at all.

  11. Mavericks: Proving Grounds pushing into the Battle Royale Game Market

    Large numbers sound great on paper, until you realise No Man's Sky did the same and we know how that turned out. Bigger isn't always better in games. This is one of those times.
  12. Brussels court condemns Facebook for violating Belgian privacy laws

    €250.000 is too low. That's what Facebook makes in like 10 minutes. You fine them €20.000.000 per day or threaten to block their operations via ISP blocking. That will move them.
  13. Vengeance LPX 3200MHz Fail - Ryzen 1700X

    The IMC can just not be good enough to accept 3200MHz. Remember, 3200 not an officially supported speed (only up to 2666 is, Raven Ridge APUs and Ryzen 2 can do 2933 officially) and you're operating the thing out of spec. It's called silicon lottery, you may have a lesser IMC in your CPU.
  14. Someone on Reddit made some discoveries. Maybe, just maybe, the center core is still alive, although not in a great shape and SpaceX decided to cut the video just in case things did go whoopsie.
  15. The core booster was mentioned only by a "We've lost it" in the audio-only stream, so don't get your hopes up for seeing that thing standing up. Other than that, fucking hell that was amazing.
