  1. Without cache, CPUs would probably be an order of magnitude slower. The cache is needed to workaround the Von Neumann bottleneck: https://www.techopedia.com/definition/14630/von-neumann-bottleneck It does help games. More cache generally does improve performance because it can increase the hit rate for cache. "Optimal" performance would be from having a 100% cache hitrate (or arbitrarily close to it given that a small number misses are necessary to fill cache), but optimality is not feasible. As for whether a better hit rate would translate into a better framerate in a game, that dep
  2. They turned off 2G years ago. If I recall, T-Mobile made a big deal out of how they would still have 2G until 2020 and tried to acquire all of the customers.
  3. This is the biggest news. My guess is that they are adopting fortnite’s predatory business model, which Valve does not permit third parties to do on Steam.
  4. It is single channel. Any 3200MT memory in dual channel would likely outperform it.
  5. You don’t need a Nvidia card. Just use sunshine: https://github.com/loki-47-6F-64/sunshine
  6. Am I the only one concerned about how a commercial company whose only product is free streaming software is trying to compete with an OSS project that does the same thing? https://moonlight-stream.org Where do they get the money funding this? Why should we trust their closed source software to not be malicious in some way when we already have OSS doing this?
  7. You could try adding the PCI-E ID to the intel graphics driver to see if trying to use the Intel graphics driver makes it work, but the chances of it working seem very low given that it is expected to be a completely different architecture from Intel’s other GPUs.
  8. I went from a GTX 1070 to a GTX 1080 Ti and I was disappointed. A 50% increase in performance was not noticeable to me. You are more likely to be disappointed than I was if you go to a RX 5700 XT.
  9. I recall that in the past, ECC and non-ECC were around parity. It does not seem to be the case anymore. The prices of everything are rising. Anyway, that RAM uses the fairly popular Micron E-die chips that are known to overclock fairly well with tight timings. I paid $86 per stick of it last year before Kingston did a product change notification saying that it was switching to 3200MHz grade Micron E die chips from the 2400/2666MHz ones previously used: https://media.kingston.com/pcn/PCN_KSM24ED8_16ME_C1.pdf As I wrote on reddit, they went to 3200MHz without
  10. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BGFXV62/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  11. You could just use eBay to get components for a new Ryzen build. For example, there are plenty of B450 motherboards and PSUs for sale on it. eBay. RAM wise, I know the following will overclock to 3200MHz with 18-21-21-39 timings at 1.2V: https://www.amazon.com/gp/css/summary/edit.html/ref=dp_iou_view_this_order?ie=UTF8&orderID=113-0987911-7938631 AM4 motherboards will happily use ECC RAM and the ones that actually turn on the ECC function can use it to make your machine more reliable. Watching for memory error reports can be useful when overclocking RAM.
  12. How did a CRT damage your eyes? My eye doctor claimed that looking at a screen could not damage one’s eyes. That being said, they probably spent the money that they could have used for new hardware on sports programs.
  13. Supply and demand most likely. There is not enough supply and too much demand.
  14. If they had developed a 5nm version of Zen 3 just in case, it would be much more likely. It would have cost more, but having a second option can pay off in times like this,
