  1. (I can't understand or read Chinese) I'm holding out that the 11900k is more efficient then the 10900k, I don't need 10 cores but if they can make an 8 core chip with higher clocks/IPC and less power draw I'm all for it. What I found odd is the massive difference in temps and lower FPS? Seems very weird, I'm not expecting huge generational improvements (this is Intel we're talking about :P) but I wouldn't expect it to be worse. It doesn't make any sense that the newer chip would run 20+ degrees warmer while performing worse... not to mention they are at the same clock so If Int
  2. interesting, my experience with Samsung's warranty on the S20+ was them telling me 'because I opened it the warranty is void and I needed to pay for the repair' even though it was under warranty...
  3. I replaced an S20+ 5G's display (with embedded fingerprint sensor) and didn't have any issues, though I don't know what security patch it was on. Edit: There are forum posts about other A series (I saw A50 and A70 at least) having similar issues so it's very possible it happens on S series devices as well on the latest security patches
  4. Summary tl:dw After swapping genuine Samsung parts between 2 Galaxy A51s the fingerprint sensor fails to read and doesn't allow you to enroll new fingerprints while displaying a message about how the sensor 'needs calibration' (there is no way for someone outside of a Samsung service center to calibrate it themselves afaik.) This only started happening after a security patch update (September) meaning it's most likely either a bug or some form of software limitation rather than a hardware incompatibility. After downgrading one of the phones with a replacement scre
  5. I prefer stock android because from my use of it, it just feels way snappier and has many more customizations like themes (from Swift/Substratum etc) and custom roms add their own interesting and useful features like partial screenshots/date in the status bar clock/lack of bloatware/etc. OneUI can do just about all of these either natively or with tools like FireFDS though so that's why I've been using it for now. I also like Google's app design compared to Samsung because Samsung doesn't let you shrink the display scaling small enough for my liking and if you do it's basically useless. Here
  6. Idk yet, it's not that I won't use Samsung because they removed these features, it's more that I only used Samsung because they had these/similar features. I vastly prefer the 'stock' android experience on something like a Pixel or Oneplus device but Samsung used to have so many more or just better features compared to other devices that I tolerated the not great software (and lack of support for updates). I chose my Note9 over a long list of other devices because it had almost everything I was interested in, OLED display, large battery, support for all the LTE bands, Wireless charging, wate
  7. Yeah, as Samsung releases more and more devices it just makes my Note9 look better and better sadly. IMO Samsung went from the best hardware (with pretty bad software) to now just mediocre hardware and mediocre software. Probably leaving Samsung once my Note9 needs to be replaced.
  8. can you enter fastboot commands while on that screen? that is the screen I was talking about right before the fastboot commands.
  9. Install ADB (if not already done) Download TWRP for your device (should be an .img file) enable ADB (in developer settings) on your nexus 9 open a CMD window and run adb reboot bootloader your phone/tablet should ask you approve the ADB connection, you might need to run it again after that prompt. it should reboot to something like this: now go ahead and run fastboot oem unlock and then run (might reboot in between) (replace TWRP.img with the actual path/name of the TWRP image file you downloaded) fastboot flash recovery twrp.img you should then be able
  10. The latest WAN show talked about the rumours from TechpowerUP and noticed that these numbers might not be as far off as even I thought. Though TechpowerUP does have higher performance than these estimates. Also to touch on Linus's quote: "it could even get to the point, in fact it probably will, where you could have like a chonkier laptop design with an RTX 3070 MAX-P that will be more performant than a thin laptop with a 3080 MAX-Q even though the thick one is cheaper." this has already pretty much happened, the difference between a 2080 Super Max-Q and a 2070 Super Max-Q is
  11. I believe Google's Family Link can do this, though it's targeted more for restricting a child's device.
  12. from my very limited testing I couldn't get more than 4 displays (on an RTX 2080S) with MST hubs, so I would assume if it's limited to 2 displays you probably won't be able to get more with an MST hub (though maybe Apple has a different limitation).
  13. Update before I get rid of it. It was a good machine, I didn't have very many complaints. Mine has a weird issue where is randomly forces hibernation because it thinks the battery is dead (just running the command line thing to disable critical battery hibernate fixes that though). This is my first experience with liquid metal and it didn't seem to last at all... I'm already having issues with the CPU thermal throttling and heating up the cooler enough to cause the GPU to reach it's max temp as well. I much prefer the fingerprint reader to windows hello (but that's just a pref
  14. Yeah, My mother's laptop has 20GB because it has 1 SoDIMM slot (with a 16GB stick) and 4GB soldered on the board. It's a Flex5 or Flex15 I don't remember which.
  15. I've never had problems with Dell, I had an Inspiron 7559 and that thing ran super cool and quiet, after that I replaced it with a Precision M6700 which I absolutely loved. All of the Precision M6X00 laptops are awesome and have tons of ports and even the dock making easy to dock and undock. Not a huge fan of them anymore because even the 'precision mobile workstations' are lacking in ports and upgradability. Just got a Clevo (X170SM-G) and the port selection is amazing, starting to see why people like Clevo so much XD (noticed you didn't have Clevo/Resellers on you list btw.)
