  1. Consider the Acer Swift 3 SF314-52G (i7-8550U, MX150). The display is a bit dimm (~220cd at max) but it has over 7 hours of runtime. srgb ~55% If you can live with the display it packs quite some power.
  2. Nobody till they are actually revealed?
  3. I remember the Acer not having the best thermals. Have to look at the vivobook before I can say something more dedicated. EDIT: The acer does not have bad thermals. It looks like a great allrounder.
  4. The fridge would have to be running all the time (which most dont because that is loud). Otherwise it would be cooling stronger, but not more efficiently. If one would go that far it would probably better to build a custom system for cooling with a fluid like in the fridge (I wont go into details here). EDIT: not more efficient because you have another part to power, the cooling itself would be amplified
  5. Ok thanks. Then it seems I misunderstood the actual influence of bandwith.
  6. I meant without bottlenecking the GPU too much. (I now hate the word bottlenecking) It would be unreasonable to use a GTX1080 on a PCIe 2.0 with a x4 bandwith. Thus I am wondering how much bandwith the lower end (GT1030) GPUs actually need not to be limited in an unnecessary manner.
  7. Hey there! I wondered if anyone knows a GPU which is using the bandwith most effectively. (Use in case you wonder is a dual gpu setup where one runs Linux and the other a Windows emulation, got the idea from the video about gaming on Linux with Wendell from Level1Techs).
  8. I would recommend waiting a week till the new nvidia gpus are announced and look if its worth waiting for stock of them to arrive. It is hard to plan with a wildcard like that in the next few days
  9. I think you would need to upgrade both not to make a great bottleneck.
  10. The gold processor is not bad or anything and I think for a 1050ti it should be sufficient. What loads do you get during games?
  11. Phantooks Evolv mini-itx (kind of cheating because it sadly is quite big for mini-itx)
  12. not too much because they are holding back the new series anyways
  13. Start off with new thermal paste, you could also try clean your fans and look if they are still running smoothly.
