    KaitouX reacted to Mister Woof in I9 10900F vs I9 11900F ?   
    I'd probably wait for Alderlake 12th gen at this point. Should arrive within 2021. If you can hold out, do it. 
     
    10th gen is stuck on PCIE3 and 11th gen IPC/overall performance sucks in a relative sense.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Pasi123 in How big of a difference will be between 50~100$ MB and over 350$   
    Some cheap Intel boards fail to even deliver stock performance of some CPUs with higher TDP, so what you said isn't entirely accurate.

    KaitouX got a reaction from InfernalClaw in is it worth it to raise power limit of my gpu?   
    I personally undervolted my 3060Ti so it uses around 160W, decent drop from the stock 200W while performing around 3% worse in the worst case I was able to find, lowering the power limit usually lost more performance in my tests, but it required basically no testing on stability.
    In my case, undervolting actually increased the performance in games because at stock the GPU can't boost as high after some time due to the temperatures, so most long tests have the undervolt performing better than stock and it's a lot quieter too.
     
    In my tests with the 3060Ti:
    Power Limit at 83% = ~163W power consumption ~5% worse than stock on average on the benchmarks I did. Lowering more results in big decrease in performance.
    Undervolt 1860MHz at 850mV = ~155W power consumption, around same performance as stock in my tests, longer tests it was faster while on shorter it was slower.

    KaitouX got a reaction from tryton-vanmeer in Swapping to Linux, which distro and how is the hardware support these days?   
    Depends on what Photoshop is used for, but Krita can also be a good alternative.

    KaitouX got a reaction from Filingo in Is LG 27gl83a-b good?   
    It's good for the price if you're willing to deal with the bad Contrast Ratio and Black uniformity.

    For other options probably the slightly more expensive Gigabyte M27Q but with the (possibly big) drawback of being a BGR display, or the similar priced Gigabyte G27Q which is a more "balanced" version with better contrast ratio and black uniformity than the LG and RGB display but with slightly slower response times.

    You can check other reviews from HardwareUnboxed and Rtings if you want more alternatives they are usually pretty good sources of reviews about monitors. And you can use the Rtings Compare tool to compare the models to check the strong and weak points of each model in the Rtings review.

    KaitouX got a reaction from NZgamer in Q: What are some MacOS features that you wish Windows had?   
    The amazing part about this is that Windows had everything in a single place, it was just a matter of organizing and maybe modernizing the interface, but they somehow created this ridiculous Settings and Control Panel war.

    KaitouX reacted to leadeater in AMD adds FSR driver support, discontinues support on older GPUs/OSes   
    Part of AMD's problem is they use all sorts of architectures within product generations so they can't just say for example all GCN 2.0 and older cards are now legacy as even RX 500 has GCN 1.0 cards in that lineup, where the main architecture for RX 500 series was GCN 4.0. 
     
    Nvidia on the other hand don't do that, GTX 10 series is Pascal and every single product within that generation has a Pascal architecture. Nvidia may however choose give certain particular cards an extended life span but those are typically very low end model for OEM or such needs. The last mixed architecure generation on desktop was GTX 700 series, GTX 900 series had 2 very low end mobile models that were Kepler rather than Maxwell.

    You could also try using the "Everything" search software and sort by date to check all files that were created recently and try to find it.

    KaitouX got a reaction from rice guru in How much difference is there between onboard solutions   
    Most people should be okay with most modern onboard solutions, but the ALC1200 should theoretically be better. In reality it's extremely dependent on the implementation by the manufacturer, and due to the fact that almost no one really tests onboard audio, in general it's extremely hard to tell if it's actually going to be better or not.

    KaitouX got a reaction from jaslion in All Xbox Hame pass PC games have low in game sound.   
    If you think the sound in the Forza intro is fine, I'm sure the rest is really quiet, that intro is like 5x louder than everything else.
     
    Make sure the volume of the games is correct in the Volume mixer, and if possible try testing other outputs to see if the problem applies to all outputs.

    KaitouX got a reaction from thechinchinsong in New implementation of graphene based technology could multiply the storage density tenfold on HDD's   
    Depends on the use case, if you aren't using them as emergency backup or to replace a raid HDD and only using them to store games and other similar things there are no issues filling it, I was able to fill my 2 8TB HDDs without any issues as i had no requirement for it to be done in less than a day/week.
    And quite often if the content used to fill the HDD is coming via internet, the internet speed or server speed is going to be the bottleneck, not the HDD speed.

    if it for internet usage only, I suggest go Linux.
    Don't go Windows 10 if you're on HDD.

    A used 120GB SSD only cost like $20-30, even less for 80GB.
    It will give you much faster and responsive system, definitely worth the extra money.

    Ehhhhhhhhhh that is way too strong a statement. AA is not made equal, and game engines are not either. Plus without knowing how close they are to the display with FOV/PPI, saying anything is automatically wasteful is excessive.

    Much like the 2080ti, 6900XT, and 3090 .. the 3080ti is an overpriced money grab targeting those without money sense or market forethought.
     
    For those interested, here something i posted back in September last year about the price history of Nvidias top end cards. Add the 3080ti and see just how disgusting the latest generations have been price wise.

    KaitouX got a reaction from NZgamer in The creators of Humble Bundle are suing Valve for monopolistic behavior in a class action lawsuit   
    You don't need to compare to Steam, Epic is lacking basic features that Origin, Uplay and GOG had within 1 year after release, if not from launch. The fact Epic can't match those even when using that much money and in over 2 years from release is laughable.
    Also Epic is not trying to compete, they're trying to establish a monopoly. Epic is literally acting more like a monopoly than Steam ever did.
    WTF, a DRM that isn't complete shit like what was getting popular isn't innovative, but exclusivity deals are?
    People didn't like it, but the alternative was going the way of ridiculous DRMs that limited number of installations, always on, DRMs that installed in the system like drivers and a bunch of others, so not sure where you got "more intrusive form of DRM" it was in no way more intrusive than the alternatives that were getting popular at that time. As much as I don't like DRMs, publishers seem to consider it a requirement(see the amount of AAA titles on GOG as example), but at least I can crack the Steam DRM in a minute, so it's the same as if it doesn't exist, while things like Denuvo and similar have the possibility to lock me out of the game without having any way to reasonably crack it. So that is about as much DRM as I'm willing to deal with.
    Epic client is out for over 2 years at this point, and it still lacks features that Origin had at release in 2011. At this point I feel like they should just had bought the client from someone that actually can make a decent one, money doesn't make the project faster, but it does give alternatives.
