  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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. 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.
  8. Hey look no flashy BS RGB but actual good-looking cards. Now waiting for a Vega version...
  9. PCIe riser issue with Phanteks Evolv Shift?

    So, after running my system with no issues on the motherboard box for a while (Ryzen 5 1600@ stock, 16GB LPX3000@2133 ASRock AB350 Gaming ITX/ac, Vega 56 UV to 1050 mV@ 1530MHz) while waiting on the case I got my system finally installed in my new Phanteks Evolv Shift and I ran into problems the moment I turned it on. First it wouldn't boot at all. Then it would sometimes boot but the screen looked like a dia show with massive tearing left and right, even in the BIOS and finally it would sometimes take ages to even get to the post screen, even though the monitor was showing a green light (aka GPU is sending data of some sort). Took the system out of the case again, plugged my V56 directly in the motherboard and whaddayaknow, no issues at all. Put it back in the system, it works for a couple of boots, but as I'm typing I can definitely feel the system being sluggish, and booting up PUBG (which ran at a solid 100+ fps most of the time on stock CPU, 2133 RAM and UV GPU) it was barely braking 40 fps average, jumping up and down between 20 and 60 multiple times per second. Running Unigine Superposition (which also run fine before case installation commenced) and GPUZI can see the GPU clock jumping up and down between 1530 and 1300-ish and power usage jumps between ~200W (normal for UV Vega) and 130W, indicating some form of power delivery issue, and that's with 50% extra power limit. I checked the riser cable with a multimeter and every connection gives that highly annoying beep when you touch the contacts of the multimeter, so no cable breaks or shorts are present to my knowledge So I can currently think of two things here that could be wrong, both have to do with the cable Panteks ships with the Evolv Shift. Either it's something in the data transfer from the CPU to the GPU making the whole thing feel sluggish or the GPU isn't getting enough power over the PCIe slot due to bigger-than-expected power losses in the cable causing severe power throttles. Is there something else I forgot here that coule be it? Browsing the Phanteks forums I can see more people with other cases that have a Phanteks riser cable with issues, which is why I think this is a similar issue.
  10. 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. Hey a headphone jack.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. You know you're doing good when you're landing too many rockets so you purposefully crash-land rockets in the ocean because you can't recover and store them. And then of course it's extra showing off when said rocket survives the impact on the ocean surface ¯\_ツ_/¯
  18. Paragon being shut down amid Fortnite's success

    And then they have this thing called Unreal Tournament in alpha stage since what, 2014?
  19. How to intentionally brick a gpu?

    How bad do you want it to be? Sure you can flash a corrupt BIOS to it to "brick" it or you can do physical damage but then it will never ever come back. The more important question really would be:
  20. If OEMs really hate miners they'd start making custom RX cards with custom BIOS chips (which AMD allows) that throttle the card to a standstill when it detects a mining load. Then AMD re-releases the Vega FE for Blockchain Pioneers that doesn't do that and sells that at $800 a pop, no group discounts. They make their money's worth, us gamers get the cards we want.
  21. OnePlus "secure" checkout isn't so secure as it seems

    Please, make some OnePlus news when something about them is actually secure and not dodgy as fuck because then it's actually news.
  22. Ryzen Price Drops

    What's a 2200G for $99?
  23. Add a 60%+ performance hit for Skylake to that. Would also like to point out AMD CPUs aren't hit with this bug at all, as stated here by AMD engineer Tom Lendacky: https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/12/27/2
  24. Sauce: Elon's Insta: Alongside that there are two more just to show the sheer size of the rocket. Spoiler alert: it's massive. I mean I have nothing to say, really. Just amazed by the scale of the thing, even though it's "just" 3 Falcon 9 boosters strapped to each other. First launch is predicted to be January 2018, and if Elon keeps his promise, the cargo will be his own Tesla Roadster.
  25. Because he can indeed. Here's a direct pic:
