    Mira Yurizaki got a reaction from Princess Luna in Why you should always keep your GPU drivers (and benchmark scores) updated xD   
    It'd be more interesting to see if the driver improvements happened continuously, or if it happened at one version and then stopped. Most cases for drivers improving application performance, it's typically for relevant applications and rarely improves performance for older ones unless they're still popular.
     
    I've yet to see a case, at least with modern graphics cards, where "not having enough VRAM" contributed to significant performance degradation over simply the GPU not being powerful enough. That is, in a lot of cases I've seen, performance still degraded linearly when the expectation is performance should be a lot worse.

    i can do 1440p/60/High without much issue in most titles. but yea, performance on AMD hasnt gotten much better since probably when that November driver was out. though i can say that recently ive noticed slightly better overall performance and stability on my RX 580 with the recent driver update. nothing major, but at least 5%

    It's a combination of improving the part of the CPU that handles instructions (decoding, scheduling etc.), improvements to cache, and working with software vendors to optimize their code for Ryzen.

    Mira Yurizaki got a reaction from Hi P in Code readability vs length   
    My philosophy is born from this: the whole point of software is to make tools that people use. If the tool doesn't work, nobody cares. They're going to go to someone else who does have a working tool.
     
    Part of what works is not only making sure the software is error-free as possible when running, but error-free as possible when developing. If it's hard to maintain the software or understand what it's doing because it was written in a way that isn't intuitive, then you're just making it harder for the next person who's has to touch the code. And often times, the next person is you. And just because you wrote it, doesn't mean a month or two from then  you'll remember exactly what was going on.
     
    Once you prove your design works, then you can worry about making improvements on the performance end. And even then, you should be aware of what's actually an improvement and what appears to be an improvement and instead is actually worse: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20041216-00/?p=36973

    The former implies you're trying to be smart with code and doing optimizations by hand. Something the compiler is supposed to do.
     
    I live with the philosophy that you don't write code in a way that computers understand what you want it to do. You write code in a way that other humans can understand what you want the computer to do.

    What's the percentage of the battery and how long has it been on battery?
     
    All this is telling me is 48.6% of the battery's current discharge was due to Chrome.

    I was more implying that people have been wanting the "next Crysis" for a while.
     
    Then ray tracing and all that comes out and people don't want anything to do with it. Though I guess in this case the visual quality wasn't that massive of a jump in the first run of things

    240hz is gimmick and placebo.
     
    Just buy a 1440p144hz IPS display.

    You need to qualify the entire argument (the name of the app in this case) with double quotes.
     
    Honestly, I'd rather live with the RGB not being what I want it to be than to try my luck with a poorly written app that can hang up the system.

    Mira Yurizaki got a reaction from The89Lunder in Intel i5 9600K not turbo boosting to its advertised speed, can it be done?   
    Turbo Boost only goes up to the maximum turbo boost speed for a single core. When you load up all the cores, the turbo boost speed goes down.
     
    Your motherboard may have a feature to enable all-core boosting, but this comes at the expense of higher heat and power consumption, obviously.

    Mira Yurizaki reacted to Electronics Wizardy in Combining two 110V AC battery packs in parallel using a power bar?   
    This is normally a very bad idea.
     
    These are called suicide cords.
    You have to get inverters/generators that are made be synced to ac, these aren't, and if they happen to be out of phase(they will be) it will be like shorting them out.
     
    Why not just get a single large inverter and a few big car batteries, cheaper and gives much more power.

    Ryzen processors have four additional lanes for generic use. This is often allocated to the M.2 slot for NVMe drives.
     
    Otherwise unless the NVMe and Thunderbolt are both trying to talk to the CPU at the same time, bandwidth isn't going to really be a problem

    Mira Yurizaki reacted to mr moose in New Sound Blaster AE-9 and AE-7 audiophile sound cards coming soon   
    People don't realise just how much difference the room makes,  the position of the furniture speakers, etc.   The most expensive, top end gear can sound like $20 garbage setup wrong for the room.
     
    Keeping an eye on the temp is important for outdoor events,  It really does make a difference if you setup during the day and sound test while the sun is out, but when you start the performance 8 hours later and the temp has dropped enough that the air is so dense that the sound starts bouncing.  Oh so much fun.
     
    This is why some people are just good at it and others need to work hard to learn it,  It's a complex science that can be like a second nature if your brain is geared for it.

    Performance in your use cases isn't simply based on hardware, but software as well. If software isn't catching up to using the newfangled things hardware can provide, then "progress" appears to stagnate. Case in point, currently no computer setup in the world can run Crysis to 100 FPS on maximum settings, despite being a 12 year old game because the game was designed in a way that isn't scalable at all with current technology.

    What's fun is even the circuitry isn't the entire battle. It's your environment. Audio is a very finicky mistress and even the slightest change in the environment can change how the audio sounds. This can be anything from the environment affecting the circuit itself (apparently temperature fluctuations can alter the sound) to how you're positioned, how the room is laid out, how the speakers are pointed, etc.
     
    Audio is basically the epitome of chaos theory realized.
