    2 is, in fact, better than 1.
     
    Why do you ask?

    I think some other link redirects to the MKBHD one as well. I don't remember which one though.

    Notlttstore.com redirects to Austin Evan's channel too. It's a joke from the troubleshooting tech stream from a month or so ago

    Keep it vertical if you've full cover blocked the GPU. Just run the cables more conspicuously.

    I had no problems running it on Proton. The launcher made it a bit of a pita, but it worked in the end.
     
     
    EDIT: Maybe I will download it tomorrow and try with a controller.

    I found it did take a bit to get used to Elite Dangerous's controls, but overall I enjoy the game.

    And there's your #1 advantage to ED. Sandbox mode is completely available. If you don't want to pop, you simply won't. If you are ok with the risk, you have the option.

    Absolutely do not play Elite Dangerous with keyboard and mice. It's absolutely playable on a controller. But a HOTAS is ideal.
     
    P.S. I have good eyesight, I can read that, and you're not alone. I play both, appreciate both as VERY different types of games. I am CEO of my own Corp in EVE, and I have way too many hours flying in ED. I love both, but I spend more time in ED as I like to fly instead of just click around space...

    Personally I found the controls to be extremely off-putting, at least in the tutorial. I highly recommend against it unless OP has a good flight sim setup.
     
    although i suppose i fit the stereotype of "eve online player who hates elite dangerous" lol

    RobFRaschke reacted to mao91 in To Z390, or to X570?   
    I think both companies offer plenty of cores and threads. Compared to my current 6-core 12-thread, anything higher is an upgrade by at least 33%. 
     
    IPCs are pretty solid. I am curious how Zen3 will pan out. There really are no performance reviews for my workload, so it's difficult to gauge. 
     
    Frequency is certainly important. My 5820k is currently overclocked to 4.4GHz and has definitely shown me a real-world performance improvement over the stock 3.2GHz. (I attribute its longevity at this frequency to my NH-D15). If I'm remembering correctly, isn't 9th gen the first to regularly boost to 5.0Ghz since 4th gen? 
     
    I'm not worried about upgrading my CPU in the same motherboard, as the incremental performance increase from one generation to the next is not enough for me to justify upgrading that quickly. I genuinely prefer to wait at least 5 years between upgrades. Features like PCIe lanes and bandwidth are pretty important to me, so if Zen3 can close the performance gap (or get close enough, say within 5%) of 10th gen, and the price is competitive, then that's most likely what I'll go with.

    I am also waiting to see what Zen3 yields. If raw horsepower is competitive with Z490 or even Z390 at a competitive price point, I'll probably jump on it to get both the raw CPU power and the future-minded amount of PCIe bandwidth that I want.

    This, and frankly, at 3700X cost, I would ether drop down to a 3600 and put the money somehwere else in the system, or at least go 10600K on z490. Most programs will lean more heavily towards either raw speed, or towards more cores. If what you run needs cores, go x570. If 6 cores or 8 cores is more than enough and you use Adobe products or other programs that are better served by all the Ghz, go z490. That is the decision this generation.
     
    All that said, we're about a month out from Zen3 announcement, so it would be silly(at best) to buy now when 4-6 weeks will give more information, and probably price adjustments, at least from AMD on the 3000 series.

    I plan on getting a 3080 so I'll probably bump my monitor to 144Hz since I usually just run at 120Hz as it's more consistent for my current hardware. I don't figure it being too much of an issue for at least another year or so, which is the entire reason I'm planning out ahead.

    RobFRaschke reacted to JaronOdele in Single M.2 NVME vs Hardware RAID 0   
    I wasn't looking to upgrade my existing 1TB NVME, rather I was wanting to put my games on a separate drive/array (With the main, existing drive serving as the seat of my OS and misc files as well as anything that, for reasons that I cannot comprehend, "ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO BE ON THE MAIN DRIVE HURR DURR!!".) and was wondering what that setup should be. But you covered everything excellently. Between what you offered and WereCatf pointing out that RAID is always going to be higher latency, this question is solved. Thank you to both of you.

    Measurable performance improvement in what?
     
    Benchmarks? Probably.
     
    3D animation? Yes.
     
    Games with a 6600K and 1080? Not unless you're playing a particularly CPU and memory intensive game, no.

    You'll get 1080p at 60fps, I'm sure, it just depends on how much eye candy you need. Try running ARK in a private local server and see what you can hit it with if you want to see where you move the load from CPU to GPU.

    that budget is better spent elsewhere in most cases
    like a better GPU or smth, though your i5 already has a 1080, which is a good pairing
     
    put it aside for your next upgrade
