  1. 28cu Raven Ridge APU appears on SiSoft

    ^^^ This. That's the only reason why X299 CPUs don't support HEVC
  2. 28cu Raven Ridge APU appears on SiSoft

    It could theoretically be.
  3. 28cu Raven Ridge APU appears on SiSoft

    It's like pairing an RX 580 with 10% more CUs with a Pentium or an i3 .
  4. Headphones for Library

    I would advise against open back headphones but most headphones with Active Noise Cancellation are closed back so that shouldn't be an issue. I'd recommend the Bose QC35 Mark 2 but Bose has been exposed for listening on music being listened to on them a while back. Sennheiser has an equivalent product but is slightly more expensive I believe.
  5. I take it nobody is interest in Microsoft's attempt at a MemeDows Phone Garage Sale :P...


    And yes, that device is powerful (Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage).



  6. Windows 10 Mobile Insider Topic

    I'm having issues with the launcher being janky and sometimes skipping animations for swiping to appdrawer even on a Snapdragon 820 device. Amen to that.
  7. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    You can do that. See above for an alternative if you'd rather not.
  8. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    Resetting it after updating should be fine. You could also try downloading the Windows Media Creation tool and make setup files on a USB (You'd need to tell the tool that you're creating media for another PC) and then you could install 1709 over 1703. If you don't install it over the existing install then you might encounter the same issue.
  9. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    You can update using Windows Update (inside the Settings App) and then reset Windows inside the Settings App once you've backed up your files.
  10. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    Windows 10 is a service and all cumulative or non cumulative updates are provided for free to users. To remain supported, users must upgrade to newer versions after a certain period of time. Feature updates are released twice per year (introduces new features etc) and bug fix and security updates are released once per month (minimum) for as long as the OS Build is supported.
  11. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    I'm terribly confused. If you back up your files and then clean install 1709 nothing bad will happen. And you need to upgrade to 1709 (or a newer version as soon as a newer one comes out) before March 2019. If you do not then you will no longer be supported and you won't receive bug fix or security updates. And you'll be vulnerable to viruses and stuff.
  12. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    That doesn't answer my question. Try clean installing 1709. Do not clean install 1703 and then upgrade... If you still have these issues after trying that then please post again.
  13. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    What do you mean you clean installed this? Did you clean install 1703 and the upgrade or did you clean install 1709?
  14. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    upgrade the version? Have you tried backing up your files and re-installing Windows 10 Build 16299?
  15. Windows 10 Home Build 1703

    It's called Version 1703 or Version 1709 and not Build _____ . Build would be appropriate for the actual Build Number like 15063 or 16299. And can you please screenshot this new volume?
