  1. Weird little update. I've gotten the HomePod mini to play music when powered by my PC although it is blinking orange (indicating it isn't receiving enough power) and it is unresponsive to commands and the touch screen isn't working... The HomePod mini drivers on Windows 10 seems fairly scuffed. It might work if I add a Thunderbolt card to my PC although that is not worth it. I guess I will just have to power it with the included power brick, I just don't have any outlets free...
  2. Okay. Yeah, I mean, HomePod's and PC's are definitely not made to work with each other so I should have expected some problems. I will see if I can find some way to change the device ''type'' tho. Thanks for the help!
  3. Okay. Yeah, that would make sense. Do you know of any way to change the device to be recognized to get power? I will search online if not tho. (I forgot to post the picture of the ''other devices'' so I have updated the post with it)
  4. Hello! So, I just got a HomePod mini and were planning to power it through the ''USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C'' port on my motherboard but it is unfortunately not working... I had originally thought the port would be able to provide up to 100W but when searching more for it on the internet, I seem to get some conflicting results about how much power it can provide. Does anyone know how much power a ''USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C'' port can provide? The HomePod Mini is working with the included 20W power brick and my 18W power bank so there is nothing wrong with it. It could also be so
  5. Apple usually is the risk production partner so they will likely use 4nm chips this year. But, yes, Q3 is probably too tight for the iPhones, it's usually Q2 for A-series risk production so I'm guessing the A15 and Apple Watch S7-chip are on N5P to launch in September and N4 is for the M2-chip* in the new MacBooks, likely launching later in October.
  6. 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...
  7. To listen to music when out running. I'm pretty sure you can't download 500 songs on that manual watch
  8. 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!
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. Only took them 4 months too long... But, as long as it fixes the USB issues, I will be happy!
