  1. May I suggest another "check", for "why not windows 11". As I suspect most people very Keen to upgrade to 11 is for the " Directstorage". According to Microsoft you must have your Games on a minimum 1TB " NVME ssd. Not a a sata M.2 My suggestion would be a "Directstorage" check. What's renting space in my head is that I bought a Samsung SSD 980 gen 3  M.2 . It does not use DRAM. ( Not to be confused with Gen 4 980 pro). According to Samsung it uses the CPU somehow ( Host Bus Controller).....this would defeat bypassing the CPU for Direct GPU load ? This is how Directstorage works??? Will my 1TB SSD 980 even work for this ?

      Dram will mostly be irrelevant for DirectStorage. The dram cache is only useful in short bursts, not constant IO like what DirectStorage aims to do.

  2. Yep. Will be fixed in 2.4.1. Microsoft is once again being wishy washy about clean installs now that consumers know about the wipe
  3. Update: Summary Microsoft has completed their review of Intel and AMD processors, and has added one 7th Gen Intel CPU, but no 1st Gen AMD Ryzen. Quotes My thoughts Pretty upset at their conclusions but Microsoft seems extremely set on specific CPU features. Regardless, it appears that if you want upgrade anyway you can do a CLEAN WIPE and NEW INSTALL of Windows 11. Granted, they only told businesses this and aren't telling consumers, but that's good to know. At the very least, Microsoft is finally re-releasing the PC Health Check app. S
  4. To Whom It May Concern,

    Effective immediately, I will be heavily inactive. This includes here and elsewhere. I have been given an opportunity I do not deserve and it will require pretty much ceasing of my online presence. I can still be reached via DMs or Discord but I will likely not reply to either for several days at a time. It's been fun being part of this community and I hope to see you all soon.

      This may occur to me as well sometime during or after September.  Only so many hours in the day and only so much mental fuel to distribute.  I echo @lewdicrous’ s wishing of luck 🙂

  5. You may need to update the BIOS or contact their support to see if it's a known issue. Sub 1GHz is a major throttle
  6. I was able to find ONE used listing for $25 USD. They don't have Canada listed as a shipping destination but it's always worth messaging the seller. If all else fails, reshipping services work as previously mentioned. https://www.ebay.com/itm/384305379664
  7. Just realized it's listed as out of stock, one moment
  8. Looks like it's discontinued outside of the Asia Pacific region. https://www2.razer.com/au-en/store/razer-deathstalker-chroma Goes for $165 CAD and I'm sure there's reputable reshipping service that covers that region if you really want a new one specifically
  9. You can get a brief overview under Settings -> Privacy -> Microphone -> Allow DESKTOP apps to access your Microphone
  10. Googling. Took a bit but was able to locate them. I checked a variety of 2xx and 3xx series and most were HDMI 1.4a & DP 1.2 and I was able to verify these two also were.
  11. All of those would perform worse in gaming. You have a good original choice. If you're looking for something a bit better in gaming look for a 4700U or 5700U.
