  1. I see, there's no reviews of that laptop in that particular spec, but you don't really need that, here's a review of this laptop with the previous-gen Ryzen 4000 series chip: https://www.notebookcheck.net/HP-Omen-15-laptop-Review-Strong-AMD-processor-makes-Intel-tremble.512679.0.html You can check the individual performance of the 5600H and the mobile 3060, and in the review I linked above the build of the laptop is exactly the same this generation. All you may want to check out is the TDP and clock speeds of the 3060 that's in there. Besides that it should perform as in that review the
  2. There's a lot of those, Hardware Unboxed and TechTesters did some as far as I remember. What particular models are you looking at?
  3. What do you guys think? I rebuilt the PC almost entirely, cleaned it and put some good old Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut on the CPU, also reworked the lighting a little - thoughts?

    Also, I ran FireStrike at stock (with PBO & Rage mode) and here's the result: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/25058605
    The GPU score is over 51k... 😮

      ditch the velcro, get a couple cable combs

      Yeah, right now I'm using the bundled-in cables from my RM850x White PSU and those cables are weird man. Gotta get some of the CableMod stuff, sad that it's hard to get it where I live...

      Hmm...

      Do the LED hotspots show up with regular use or no?

      What do you mean?

      What do you mean?

      In the shot, the LEDs in the fans are clearly visible as separate in the fan.

      Can you see them that way with everyday use or is that the camera?

      Ah, I see - Yeah, you can see them because the fans are transparent excluding the fan blades
      I'm using Corsair HD120s, they're one of the first ARGB fans Corsair made so they're not as nice as those new expensive QL-series ones.

  4. Check out this one: https://www.gigabyte.com/Monitor/AORUS-FI27Q-X It does have crosshair overlay, it even allows you to create your own custom one. I've seen a few reviews and it seems to be praised for both image and colour reproduction, as well as its gaming features. It's a fairly new model that launched this year.
  5. So I got tired of waiting for the RTX 3080 that I ordered on 17th of September. It's outrageous that you can order something at launch day, immediately pay for it and not receive it for 6 months (and counting).

    On the bright side, I got this instead - time to do some testing! 😁

      Wow. I would hope after 6 months they refunded your payment!

      Geez. Yeah, the 6900 XT is ending up being one of the more attainable cards due to its originally ridiculous premium. Also helps that it's a bad mining value. About 4 times now I've been able to waltz right into Microcenter and grab one. It's crazy though. When the 3060 launched, there were people waiting outside Microcenter to buy GPUs off of people who got there in time to be put on the list. So a card there was already insane at $500 had offers of $6-700 thrown at it. A 3060.... what a crazy market.

      I played big brain.

  6. How does a Ryzen CPU (apart from iGPU-equipped ones) "heavily benefit" from a dual channel memory setup in a way that's unlike any other processor? Speed is one thing, capacity is completely another. Do you need the capacity? That'd be the first question you need to ask yourself, as if you're strictly gaming, 16GB is enough for now. Another thing is - 3200MHz vs 3600MHz doesn't make that much of a difference. The 3600MHz kit is better, but it's not that much better and usually not worth paying for, especially that you can set a 3200MHz kit to 3600MHz manually.
  7. Agreed, if Zen 3 was on a new process node then I guess it would be possible, but it's a node that AMD knows quite well already so it seems unlikely to be a wide scale issue P.S. I hid your accidental post
  8. Moved to Off-Topic. That's not even remotely tech news...
  9. Then they're effectively identical in gaming, with the Ryzen being better in multicore performance in general, and having AM4-platform benefits like better upgrade path, PCIE 4.0 and overclocking support. As of right now, I suspect the 10400 may be a fair bit cheaper, so it may be a better bang for the buck. Watch this video, should explain everything to you:
  10. Depends on the Ryzen CPU. Ryzen 5000 series CPUs actually deliver better gaming performance than current Intel's offerings. Pricing may be weird, as Ryzen chips are manufactured on a 7nm TSMC process which is in a worldwide shortage right now. What particular CPUs are you looking at and what are the prices in your area? Without that information we cannot say which would be a better value pick.
  11. Look what just arrived... 😉 Got the Phantom Silver one

      @i_build_nanosuits Still no word. The store gave me an option of sending the money back to me, while keeping the order and spot in the queue, and they'll notify me that I need to pay whenever the card arrives to them 😛 I agreed, we'll see what happens

      by the time they get it there might be better options available too...

  12. Because if you enabled HDR in Windows, all SDR content (which is most of what you usually see) looks like washed out crap, including Windows' own UI. Another reason may be that people think they have "HDR" monitors, but they're not really HDR, even if the option is available in Windows. Games need to support it, and there needs to be a toggle for that in options. You can have HDR disabled in Windows, but enabled in a specific game in its settings, so when you launch a game the monitor should go black for a moment and then turn back on with HDR enabled. It's only annoying when
  13. True, but it's up to your wallet and your personal needs to decide, whether those "some other features" are worth $100. For some people they are, for most they are not.
  14. "Worth" is a relative term. Yes, the 1080Ti is faster than the 2060 (actually performs like a 2070 Super) and has almost double the VRAM, but if you already have a 2060 I wouldn't buy a last-gen card. Order yourself a 3060 or a 3060Ti instead and just wait until you somehow receive it.
  15. I think you're out of luck here. I don't know any eGPU cases that have 3x 8-pin power connectors. So unfortunately I'm afraid that the solution may be to buy a 3090 that features only two 8-pin connectors.
