  1. An update: I sent back the 5500xt and got a refund. Today I found a used RX580 nearby, I went and tested it and it was ok. Now I'm home and it's been running furmark for 30 minutes and it's stable. The issue was the other GPU. The box that it came in had a small puncture and it probably slightly damaged something on the card.
  2. I've also noticed the fans make a weird sound around 2200RPM:
  3. Wattman is AMD's utility for tweaking the gpu parameters (clock speed, voltage, etc). After a crash it's pretty normal to reload the default settings.
  4. I tried to see if things are any different on Linux, since I had a clean install there. 10 minutes into Furmark, same black screen crash, with the fans on maximum.
  5. Did that. Now I'm not getting the same black screen hard crash anymore. Cyberpunk just crashed and I got sent to the desktop. The AMD drivers detected a driver timeout. Edit: nevermind, just got another black screen crash I -also don't think temps are an issue. GPU temp is around 60C and junction temp is around 70C.
  6. I've just bought it and I can return it in the next week. The problem is that there is nothing else to buy. It doesn't make sense for it to be the psu since my old 560 sucked up more power. As of now it's been running MSI Kombustor for 30 minutes without any issues.
  7. I've been running MSI Kombustor for a while and it wasn't crashing. I kept thinking it might be the PSU and I decided to also run Prime95 and it crashed in like 5 minutes.
  8. Hello everyone. I've recently bought a new 5500xt as a replacement for my aging gtx 560. When playing Cyberpunk, after 10-15 minutes, the screen goes black, the GPU fans start spinning at full speed and the system becomes unresponsive. I have to power off the pc and turn it on again. I've stress tested the GPU with superposition and unigine valley for 2 hours and I've had no crashes. I've also played Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order for an hour without any issues. Right now I'm thinking of a few options: - nvidia old drivers were not uninstalled
  9. Yes, the reason it doesn't work is because in C an array (eg. int v[]) is almost the same as a pointer (int *p), but the array is allocated on the stack and not on the heap. When you declare a vector int v[] = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4}, v is a pointer to the location in memory where the beginning of the array is found. You can view the exact memory location if you do something like printf("%p\n", v). To be exact, the only difference you will see between a declaration like int *v or int v[] is that int *v sizeof returns 4/8 bytes (the size of a memory address, 4 bytes for a 32 bit
  10. Quick update: Today I've seen a local retailer restock the RTX 2060. Unsurpisingly, it's quite expensive: (roughly 600 EUR)
  11. It depends on the execution. I didn't read all the specifics of the patent exactly. Another somewhat similar examples are QLC SSDs. QLC store 4 bits of information per cell and is much slower. Most drives offer an SLC cache for decent performance. Are QLC SSDs bad? Not necessarily, they provide a larger storage space at a really low price.
  12. You coud probably make a context free language for some simpler situations. Eg: ADD(+x, offset) is something like: >offset +x <offset (assuming positive offset, it's reversed for a negative offset) However, it doesn't cover situations where you have inter-weaved + and - eg. +---++--+++--+-+-+- Generally, it should be something like: ADD(x, offset) >offset w <offset , where the number of "+" in w minus the number of "-" in w is equal to x That's pretty complicated and kinda useless (why would you do ++++--- instead of
  13. I've had a 200R for some years now and didn't think to remove the front fan to see if it makes any difference. I will try to do it and observe the results. I have one issue though. A few months ago I moved my PC and I now get a weird, but faint sound coming out of the case. It's annoying and I don't really know where it's coming from. Usually a bang in the side panel fixes it. I think it's either the front fan, the side panel, or the drive cage.
  14. Summary Among the GPU shortages of these days, NVIDIA has plans to reintroduce more RTX 2060 and 2060 Super cards into the market, even though the 3060 is planned to be released next month. The prices are expected to hover around 300 EUR for an RTX 2060 and around 400 EUR for an RTX 2060 Super (in France). Quotes My thoughts I've wanted to upgrade my GPU for quite a while now, but I, like a lot of other people out there, don't want to spend a big amount of money on a GPU. Right now, most mainstream video cards, such as the 1660 supe
  15. So it seems a SATA 3 port on my motherboard is somewhat broken and that's why the SSD showed up as SATA 2 (with Intel Rapid Storage). I plugged it into another port and it works fine now
