  1. With the YouTube settings menu closed when playing, CPU usage drops to 3%. I had to make 2 forum posts because of the 20MB file size limit.
  2. That test in OP's post is bollocks. I have the same GPU (1080 Ti) and a CPU that is 3½ years older than the one in the original test. They've clearly messed around with browser settings, or they have Windows Update running at the same time. Playing an 8K 50FPS video in Chrome:
  3. On the AutoHotkey forum, 'aph' has created a script to allow middle click scrolling in File Explorer. I have started using it and it is working well. https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?p=198334#p198334
  4. Thank you, GoodBytes. I appreciate the information. It means I can start looking for a mod that allows it, instead of trying to find a non-existent setting. Skype and Discord also have middle click scrolling. I picked up the habit of using it and it now bothers me when I can't use it in long lists in File Explorer.
  5. I'm trying to enable middle click scrolling, like we have in Google Chrome and other programs, in File Explorer. For example, here it is on the Linus Tech Tips forum. When navigating folders in File Explorer, I keep pressing the middle mouse button expecting to scroll down quickly, and being disappointed every time I remember it doesn't work there. Help on how to enable this would be much appreciated.
  6. There have already been a number of huge fines handed to organisations by regulatory authorities over data breaches due to insufficient security and encryption since GDPR's implementation date on 2018-05-25. It would be ironic to see more organisations experiencing data breaches if a new law forced backdoors, which would lead to more huge fines.
  7. It's rather unlikely that encryption will be required to have backdoors because The General Data Protection Regulation (a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area) requires that organisations encrypt communications and peoples' data using the latest standards of encryption with no flaws. A new rule allowing backdoors would break that law.
  8. Hi everyone, I had thought that Google's search engine was intelligent enough to properly sort through websites and order them in the search results with the higher quality websites first; I read that this is especially done with phone screen compatibility to make sure that users searching for results on a phone aren't given websites that don't display properly. In the last few months I've seen that more and more Google searches I do are giving me dead websites in the first 10 links. Yesterday, even the first website in the results was dead. For example:
  9. Thanks for your post. I found it interesting. Yes, the thermal dissipation solution for these SoCs is almost nonexistent in many devices. My Xiaomi MiPad 2 tablet can now play 1080p 60fps YouTube videos smoothly since the modification, although with the occasional dropped frame if I look at the 'Stats for nerds' menu. The tablet couldn't handle this at all before, but 1080p 60fps videos played on local storage using PotPlayer have always been fine. I sometimes use a Chrome extension called Turn Off The Lights, which allows me to block 60fps and play the videos at 1080p
  10. Well done @Edzel Yago on the painting. The case looks beautiful. Also, the people at Unraid's explanation and Linus' explanation of the problems of using AMD CPUs and motherboards (including 3rd generation Ryzen) for virtualisation describes exactly what myself and many others who have worked with enterprise systems have experienced. The compatibility and uptime is just not acceptable and causes projects to be halted and restarted. It's unfortunately something that those who push for Ryzen based systems ignore, or simply aren't aware of, but causes massive headaches for those invol
  11. You're derailing the thread. OP's question was about pricing, not about 'Whether Vitamanic thinks it's worth it or not'. Don't pay for it if it's not for you.
  12. It sounds like your firmware update was interrupted. This is the reason why it's important to have both the gimbal and phone batteries charged before starting, and you shouldn't be trying to use your gimbal or phone for anything else during the update process. If you cannot turn on the gimbal after charging it and long pressing the power button, I recommend you speak to Gudsen's support staff to try to find a solution. https://www.gudsen.com/support
  13. Thanks for your comment! During the control Cinebench R20 test, the maximum clock speed reached on all 4 cores was 2,240MHz, and the 4 cores stayed at that frequency throughout. The reason the average is lower is because before and after the test the SoC's CPU cores were idling at 480MHz. 2,240MHz is the maximum clock speed achievable by the Intel Atom x5-Z8500 SoC. I was surprised that it wasn't throttling, even while being so close to TjMAX. However, when I used the tablet to multitask for long periods, my impression was that the SoC was slowing down. This
  14. I noticed the Xiaomi MiPad 2 tablet I have was regularly reaching 82°C on it's highest core when multitasking. This tablet uses a Intel Atom x5-Z8500 SoC with 4 cores / 4 threads at a clock speed of 1,440 - 2,240 MHz. It's an interesting chip because it can run both Windows and Android natively without emulation. I'm running Windows 10 on it. This system on a chip (SoC) has a TjMAX of 90°C, so whenever I multitasked it was only 8°C away from its maximum functioning temperature. This temperature was measured in Spring when the temperature is mild. When I had previously d
  15. When playing HDR videos on your TV from your computer, test to see if an HDR video looks washed out when playing in a PotPlayer window, and also test it when PotPlayer is in fullscreen mode, using the Madshi Video Renderer both times of course. I came across this post, so that's why I'm suggesting this test: https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1810891#post1810891
