    What do you mean 'others'? 
     
    Literally anybody who is slightly in the know about PCs know that anything under a 'Z' series chipset will limit RAM speeds.

    I doubt Intel are going to change anything, considering this has been going on for 5+ years.

    So thank you so much for your attention. You're so awesome.

    xFluing reacted to APasz in Nvidia card for physx on an AMD system   
    Running AMD and NVidia drivers at the same time isn't really an issue anymore. Windows' stupid DM accounts for the majority of issues.
     
    It's possible to specify which processor will do physX work. iirc it can even be specified on a per app basis.
     
    Some games will have problems with physX and rendering being done on different cards. Only solution is to run the game and physX on the same card.

    When you boot ryzen for the first time. It may take up to 2 Minutes to post dont be worried, Get fast ram it helps with the infinity fabric and grab a X570 mobo with a good vrm and make sure you have sufficent cooling

    GPU is a good place to start. After that, look at an i7-4770K and another 8GB of memory. Couldn't hurt to throw in an SSD as well.

    xFluing got a reaction from JordenForkKnife in Show off your old and retro computer parts   
    This old Quadro FX 3450 (equivalent to a 6800 gt, I think, it's the same form factor so I assume it is) I used to game on this until 2015, so yeah you can tell it was a nightmare with games like path of exile being one of my favourites back then, even Half Life 2 would have issues with it.
     
    I couldn't use it in a retro system even if I wanted to sadly, because it suddenly started artifacting by itself after 2 years in storage.

    Research papers written in 2006 warned about it and Intel disregarded it. They have been known for a long time Intel didn't give a shit

    xFluing reacted to GoldenLag in "Multi-Core" graphics cards   
    The issue lies in connecting 2 dies that can function just fine on their own. Which is what the zen approach is. Due to differences im memmory distrubution and cache such an approach is not possible. 
     
    They would have to make "CU" dies to be fed by a "cache" die that will feed the different "CU" dies. Something that intel can apply with their different node tech. 
     
    This approach would also probably involve an active substrate. Something AMD is currently working on

    I should upgrade the RAM before those 5 years, also the SSD is 240GB in size.

    xFluing reacted to LAwLz in That's not how graphs work, Linus   
    I've said it before and I will say it again, LinusTechTips is not a channel for information.
    Even their "informative" videos are often riddled with factual errors which leaves the viewer less informed than before they watched the video.
     
    If you want to learn something, stay away from LinusTechTips and their other channels. If you think their videos are entertaining then go ahead and watch them, but never use them as a source of information.
    Their graphs being inaccurate is the least of their issues.

    xFluing got a reaction from LAwLz in That's not how graphs work, Linus   
    Then why make the takeaway point seem like some rigged graph, again, either have them of variable length without rounded numbers, or without any number altogether, or have them at the same length if rounded, it's not about the point they're making, it's about the implications of such a small error, this is how misinformation gets spread, through small errors everyone copies.

    Whoever did this needs to be fired STAT, is his editor an Intel shill or something what happened here, why do the Ryzen 3 results have smaller bars than the Intel ones, even though the numbers are the exact same? This isn't just a fluke, it's in all of the graphs in the video, see for yourself:

    Thought it might be, but why not just give the non-rounded numbers, otherwise it can cause uproars, like this had already done.

    This still doesn't absolve them of this goof, either round the numbers and have both bars the same length, or DON'T round the numbers in order to keep bars at different lengths.

    xFluing reacted to Pangea2017 in That's not how graphs work, Linus   
    if you plot 97 they have to be the same size. Otherwise you have to ask what is the point of writing 97 and not something like 96.85 when the precision is better?
     
    What would be nice if they have a error bar or some where at the bottom the uncertainty listed like +- 0,5 frames for 3 sigma.

    I was going to say it looks like just an honest mistake (OP's complaint looks bad but there's others where AMD is ahead due to misalignment so clearly no bias there*), but a mistake nonetheless, although this could very well explain it.  Hadn't thought of that.  Personally I would advise them to add an extra decimal point in cases like this for clarity, even if it's not a significant difference and may well even be within the margin of error.

    xFluing reacted to peredv in That's not how graphs work, Linus   
    If the bars are the correct sizes then here are the "derounded" numbers:
     
    one px = 100/56px = 1.79% of a fps
    The Core I7 8700K scored a 17 + 26px meaning it got a score of (26px * 0.0179) + 17 = 17.46 fps - when rounding this would still be 17 but just barely.
    The Ryzen 3 1300X then scored a 16 + (47.5px▲ * 0.0179) = 16.85 fps
     
    ▲NOTE: I know pixels can't really be half but the last pixel of the ryzen bar is of about 50% opacity, I took this to mean .5 of a pixel
