    Daniel Z. reacted to bellabichon in Are my CPU temps supposed to be this high in Minecraft - Ryzen 5 3600   
    55-65C is well within tolerances for your CPU. I'd only get worried if you were hitting 90C+. Minecraft isn't the best optimized game, and it can be reasonably CPU-heavy, but your temperatures are fine.

    Get the i5 10400F or 10400, it's great value right now

    Daniel Z. reacted to Mister Woof in 10100 vs 2600 vs 10400   
    10400F is better than every option right now at ~$150
     
    Ryzen 5 2600 isn't worth getting unless it's dirt cheap, which it isn't, and no overclock will make it better than the 10400. And Ryzen 5 3600 isn't worth $200.
     
    I3-10100 is fine for lower end gaming and will be fine for your chosen gpus. I use one and it actually games better than my Ryzen 5 1600 even with an overclock.

    If you want music performance you should get a Sennheiser HD 599 or something like that. Out of the headphones you listed, the MH751 is probably the best

    Daniel Z. reacted to cm992 in Will Apples M1 Chips cut off the platform even more?   
    They wont drop x86 support from macOS for a very long time. For example the oldest MacBook Air that supports the latest macOS (Big Sur) is from 2013. Thats 7 years of support and considering how Apple actually still sell lots of x86 Macs right now its going to be a while before x86 support is dropped.
     
    The MacBook Air is the only line that you can only buy new with an M1. You can still get MacBook Pros in 13-in and 16-in with Intel processors. As well, all the iMacs are Intel, you can still buy the Intel Mac mini, and the Mac Pro and iMac Pro are Intel.

    Daniel Z. reacted to BiG StroOnZ in Samsung to manufacture NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 SUPER Series GPUs next year (Updated)   
    NVIDIA looked to Samsung rather than TSMC for the production of its RTX 30 series GPUs. The decision to go with Samsung has caused issues though, not least poor yields on its 8 nm process. Nonetheless, NVIDIA will continue to use Samsung for its RTX 3000-series SUPER GPUs, according to a new report. The RTX 30 SUPER series is due next year.

    I find this particular story quite interesting, because it makes the lack of supply issue "suspicious" (because of the timing). In that, what if there really isn't a supply issue per se, but they are in actuality preserving the best dies from current yields for this upcoming SUPER series release. Despite issues with production, they (NVIDIA) seem to have still renewed a second deal here with Samsung. If they are stockpiling the best binned dies for the SUPER series release of the 3000-series, that would make sense. Nobody suspected AMD to be as competitive with big Navi as they were (RDNA 2 / RX 6000-series). NVIDIA probably figured it would be best to rush the SUPER refresh parts to gain that slight edge over AMD's competing offerings (thus EOLing non-SUPER parts, and going straight to SUPER parts). With Turing though, once the SUPER series launched, quite quickly, non-SUPER parts went EOL (perhaps instead of refreshing stock of non-SUPER stuff, they forgo it altogether and pivot to the SUPER refresh parts immediately). Here though, if the Ampere SUPER parts prove to be slightly faster (5-12%) than their non-SUPER counterparts (as did with Turing), this is "justification" for charging even more or slightly more (rather than the same, especially if demand allows it). Which begs the question, is the scalping going to in actuality be even worse then, than it is now...? Or will supply meet the demand this time around because Samsung has been prepping for this refresh all along?

    It will run just fine. 1080p ultra at 60 fps with occasional dips in the 50's. High would be a more stable setting for constant 60 fps.

    Daniel Z. got a reaction from AkoSiAdam in is it worth it to upgrade from an rx 570 to a 1660 super?   
    If you want to run 1440p or 4k for those games you'd need way more than just a 1660 Super. GTA Online is fine in my experience with my 1440p 165hz, 3700x, 1660 build because the FPS caps out around 80 anyways. AC Valhalla and Cyberpunk would be impossible with a 1660 Super at 1440p 144hz. However, they could be played at 1080p 75hz with the 1660 Super. I'd highly recommend waiting for the 3060 Ti to be in stock, or waiting for the 6700 and 6700 XT.

    honestly doubt this, as you need some sort of storage media, then you would need to get the user to launch some sort of program with admin perms. also this is a physical example, not code.

    What resolution do you play at? What games do you play? In general, I'd say no, but if you're just using a 1080p 60hz panel I guess it's a decent upgrade.
