    .Apex. reacted to Levent in is readyboost worth it ?   
    Nope, readyboost was a gimmick and the actual cases where it helped are extremely limited. It uses a dedicated USB flash drive as a swap/pagefile location.

    RAM is for sure better. Using Ready boost with usb 2.0 flash drive might be worse than regular pagefile on HDD...

    .Apex. got a reaction from hauch in Corsair TX850M Connecting PCIe to RTX 3080   
    It's because both PCie and EPS (4+4) cables are made up of 12V and Ground, but their arrangement of pins are different, so you need a different cable to make use of each of them, but the port (on the PSU side) stays the same

    So this is supposedly a replacement for the GT710? if it performs the same as a GT1030 then that's not bad at all

    .Apex. got a reaction from DriftMan in AMD RADEON RX 480 only drawing 50 watts max while gaming   
    What games are you running? it seems to me that you have a CPU bottleneck which prevents the GPU from being used to 100%, that's why it's only at 50W.
     
    That FX 770K CPU is ancient and is not up to handle an RX 480 by any means.

    .Apex. reacted to minibois in Why is it so hard to trim a simple MP4 video?   
    Technical reason: MP4 uses interframe compression, which means it compresses not every frame by itself, but it compresses video by looking at the previous frame and only saving what has changed, rather than for example compressing each frame. This means it may be difficult to retain the original quality for programs when cutting a piece out of the video.
     
    Practical solution: personally I like using Handbrake. 

    Like this you can only cut a piece from the video. It does have to re-render it though, which depending on the CPU you have could take very little or a long time.
    You have a lot of options in quality options, so you can make it look as good (or bad) as you want.
  14. Agree
    .Apex. got a reaction from Eigenvektor in AMD RADEON RX 480 only drawing 50 watts max while gaming   
    Depends on what the game is and if it's already performing as you would expect, a 2D game would not stress out an RX 480 to the extent of a 3D game would, or if the game is really old and you have VSYNC on or you're running into a CPU bottleneck, you haven't mentioned your system specs or nearly any details to answer your question properly

    I was not expecting Nvidia to release a new Pascal card in 2021.
     
    Maybe if we pretend like this is a really good graphics card all the scalpers will rush out to buy it, then get stuck with a bunch they can't sell.
    Wow, the GT 1010!? I've been waiting for this for years! This is going to be the best value graphics card on the market! Hopefully I will be able to buy one on launch!

    .Apex. reacted to The Flying Sloth in How do xlr mics work   
    Yeah, but to be fair, everyone thinks they only need one microphone until they have the option to use more, once I got this interface I was constantly finding creative (read : stupid) ways to fill them all up and now I'm looking for at least another 8 XD
  18. Agree
    .Apex. reacted to The Flying Sloth in How do xlr mics work   
    The other major difference is driver support, the UMC22 from memory is USB1.1 (could be wrong) and isn't supported by any first party drivers. If you want to do any serious recording you will be stuck using generic drivers unlike the UMC202HD which has dedicated ASIO drivers. If you're only using it for Discord, have no plans to record anything and don't want to be able to use a second mic in the future for podcasting or anything similar the UMC22 might end up being a decent choice.

    The driver issues, legacy digital connection, fewer inputs and minimal price difference still makes the 202HD a better purchase in my book but if you're not bothered by any of that and don't feel like spending the minimal premium the UMC22 might be for you.

    .Apex. got a reaction from The Flying Sloth in How do xlr mics work   
    Oh yes I understand all those advantages when it comes to the UMC202HD but when all is required is one microphone there's nothing wrong with going with the UMC22, but you're right about the price difference not being substantial enough to warrant all those cutout features

    .Apex. got a reaction from imajerec in why doesn't intel allow OC on b series boards?   
    Mainly no other reason than to segment their product lineup so they could sell more or make more profit on their silicon yields, there's also the argument that there's only a small fraction of people who overclock their CPUs, and if you are into that type of thing then you should've considered paying the premium, it's a ridiculous artificial limitation that isn't necessary but it's there.

    .Apex. reacted to straight_stewie in Python Question   
    Moving diagonally is not hard.

    The problem is that there are four diagonals:
    Down and to the right Assuming that you want to move diagonally down and to the right, the algorithm is to continually increment both indices (row, column) until either one is out of range. Down and to the left Assuming that you want to move diagonally down and to the left, the algorithm is to increment row while decrementing column, until either one is out of range. Up and to the right Assuming that you want to move diagonally up and to the right, the algorithm is to decrement row while increment column, until either one is out of range. Up and to the left. Assuming that you want to move diagonally up and to the left, the algorithm is to decrement both row and column, until either one is out of range.

    .Apex. reacted to Stahlmann in RmX 850 constant idle hum?   
    The RMX series are very high-quality and my own RMX 850W does not make the slightest noise whatsoever. The only thing i can hear from my PC is some GPU coil whine when under load. Your PSU is marketed as silent because the fan will only kick in when it's under heavier load. At idle the fan is off.
     
    But what @.Apex. said could also be true. I never knew coil whine even existed until i really started to optimize my PC for silence. I'm now at a point where GPU coil whine is the loudest part of my PC lol.
