  1. Oh god, finally! I had to switch to Apple Music nearly two years ago tho so I'm not sure if I will go back to Spotify since it would be a lot of work organising all my playlists...
  2. To listen to music when out running. I'm pretty sure you can't download 500 songs on that manual watch
  3. This is very disappointing... Hopefully, with Apple starting to move more and more of their supply chain out of China, they will soon be harder on Chinese demands, ideally just like in the rest of the world!
  4. Sorry. Yeah, that was too much text. Okay. So, I have never really monitored Task Manager that closely but I sometimes look at it a few times a day to see if there is any weird program sucking up performance but I have never really found anything. The only program I've seen sucking a considerable amount of RAM when not gaming is Chrome tho, up in the 3-5GB range sometimes but I still have like an extra 18GB available so it should not be a problem then. But, when the system starts slowing down, Task Manager stops monitoring so then I cannot see if any particular program is eating R
  5. iCue, Razer Synapse, Afterburner, Steam, Discord and Samsung Magician is always running. I have reinstalled both iCUE and Synapse several times when figuring out ''high'' CPU usage before, in which they combined uses 2% CPU, lowering Cinebench score about 2% as well but I do not know if this is relevant for this protracted slowdown problem. If I do remember correctly however, Google Chrome has always been open when the slowdown starts so that could potentially be causing it. I have not found any weird program sucking up performance in Task Manager tho. Yeah, hopefully it is not some mining cra
  6. So, I have had some weird crashes on my PC ever since I built it in mid-december. It is not really any straight forward crash, like a BSOD or anything like that. Instead it is a protracted slowdown of the system. Here is generally how it happens: At first, usually when I'm watching YouTube, the video starts slowing down (audio is fine), then speeds up, slows down again and freezes, audio from the video keeps running tho. The YouTube tab stops being responsive as well and every other tab too, although I can switch between the tabs without problem. I then try to close Chrome, usuall
  7. I'm actually not sure if the M2 chip will be the one with all the extra cores. I feel like it would be the replacement for the M1 chip, although potentially with 10 CPU cores, four little, six big, and 10 GPU cores. The one with like 12 CPU cores and 16 GPU cores would make more sense for a X-version, like M2X. For example, MBP 16'' starting with M2 with the upgrade option for M2X would be my best guess. I do however also believe that the M2 will be considerably better than the M1, even tho I don't think it will be a 12 CPU core chip.
  8. It will probably crash when you least expect to be honest... Sometimes it seems stable but then suddenly isn't a few days later. But it seems like you have gotten a very good 5900X for it to be working that well!
  9. This is great although I can't find what VBIOS my GPU is running so I'm not sure if I'm supposed to download F3 or F11... It says that you are only able to update to a VBIOS within the range F1-F9 or F10-F19 so depending on what VBIOS you have got, you need to download the right series of new VBIOS. Guess I will not be able to use SAM then, because I don't want to guess my VBIOS and potentially brick the card.
  10. Only took them 4 months too long... But, as long as it fixes the USB issues, I will be happy!
  11. Okay, I'm keeping my scuffed 5900X and B550 board for a bit longer lol. Hopefully Alder Lake is good or AMD can fix all the USB issues and BIOS glitches!
  12. Thanks god they are publicly investigating this! I have had a lot of USB issues since I built my PC in December... I bought a 3.1 USB-hub and changed to PCIe 3.0 which almost solved the USB issues, but not completely so I'm really happy they now have said that they are looking into it. Hopefully it is not a hardware issue tho...
  13. My 5900X can't seem to use more than a 10 offset, we are probably just unlucky. Or it will get better in a newer BIOS down the road.
  14. It's still working fine? I'm getting issues with just my keyboard now in some games but my other devices seems to be working over USB. Hoping AMD/ASUS will have a fix out soon since I would like to use PCIe 4.0 and even with it disabled it's not completely perfect.
  15. Yeah, I don't really see how there would be enough capacity for Intel this year, unless it's just a few low volume chips. Do you know if N5P are completely new wafers or the same ones but just updated/redesigned? Since Apple are moving to N5P later this year with their upcoming A15 chip. If N5P are seperate wafers then that would definitely free up some N5 capacity.
