    ThomasJacobsen got a reaction from Mad153 in Huawei laptops and privacy concerns.   
    I mean, are you a person of interest? if no, then no.
    You're already sharing so much data to Google, Facebook etc. 
     
    Also on a side note;
    Nothing is proven from anyone that Huawei spies on you, its just USA and their witch hunt imo (note imo)

    Dont see price cuts coming. AMD's "response" is hardly competitve so Nvidia can charge as much as they desire.

    What games are we talking about here?
     
    Is RX 590 reasonably priced? 1070's like nope, it's slower than 2060 and doesnt have RTX features at all, no reason to buy it at that price.

    A sortlist of the last 18 months GPU value from best to worst

    So just add that 25% to each of all the GPU prices on the list, no?

    I wont be bothered with ray tracing for now, I treat RTX like a gift code for an unreleased game. I know it's there, but I dont know if it will end up being shit. I dont know if it will eventually evolve into something decent like No Man Sky.
     
    It can do 1080p 100fps high settings at least in most games though, that's what I care. Add a Freesync / Gsync monitor and it will be great.
     
    It is, but weaker GPUs can't do what you want (or for very long). It's better to push hard on one side and fix the other later.
     
    3rd gen Ryzen's coming when the North gets warm (early Q3) so not a good time to buy new CPUs anyway

    All the closest 2060 competitor from the AMD side has much higher power consumption (over 200W) while the 2060 is only 160W, this means difference heat they produces..

    in performance 2060 is slightly faster, so I'm still leaning towards the newer card.

    Not quite, as the site sometimes gets prices from Ebay.
    Used cards cant be compared to new ones..
     
    But obviously if i'm going for the mid- range cards its going to be the 2060, as it stands out in bang for buck like the site says!

    Mid range cards like the RX 590 wont be very good at 144fps average for these games. Even 100fps means cutting down quality (I mean, even the well optimized Dirt 4 needs it). You'd better aim higher.
     
    Seeing the games you listed, no.
     
    but a month for an RMA is just frustrating isn't it?
     
    I have a 1070 and it plays high settings in most games I played (Watch dogs 2, Assassin's Creed Origins, Dirt 4, Project Cars, Far Cry 5 and Ghost Recon Wildlands) anywhere from 70fps to 100fps. As you can see, all (except FC5) are pretty harsh on hardware. That's why I think you should aim higher.

    I'm in British Columbia of Canada. Taking taxes into consideration then 2060 cost about $500 CAD which is $375 USD. 1070ti and 1080 both cost more than this back then, so good deal for people in my region. I only play at 1080p so I dont care about 2GB less memory

    ThomasJacobsen reacted to Slottr in how to install windows on new ssd?   
    You won't be able to clone it because of the size difference. You'll have to use Microsoft's Windows ISO Tool, create a bootable drive and install windows fresh using that. 
     
    I'd stick the new SSD into the laptop you want it in, then install Windows to it

    ThomasJacobsen reacted to Slottr in First build hookup. nothing happening   
    You have to short the front panel power pins on the motherboard to turn it on, the power supply just provides the machine power, but doesnt actually turn it on via the button

    Im not a expert, but newer games will have ray tracing so the RTX is a obvious choice if the budget doesn't matter.
    If it breaks down, you will just get a new one on warranty!

    I just ran Benchmark again and had HWMonitor open, maxed at 59c while GPU maxed at 53c. I put a corsair fan in instead of the OEM Bitfenix one when i got the case so i have decent airflow.
