    Islam Ghunym reacted to SupaKomputa in Intel tiger lake built in thunderbolt 4 support for laptops   
    It does cost to produce, they have to pay licensing fee to Intel if they want to use TB in their laptop.
    (although intel remove the fee just recently).
    On top of that, they have to install a controller chip for it to work. Another cost they don't wanna spend.
    As thunderbolt is now free it will be available as a feature on the next USB4 specification.

    Depends on your exact model of the card. 
     
    I would really suggest to look this up on techpowerup for the exact model you have in mind. 
     
    Also that is kind of irrelevant information, what you really need to worry about is the *actual* power limit, not the % you can set it to, unless there's something I'm missing? 
     
    basically a card with 120%power limit can have a lower power limit than a card with 110%... 
     
     
    And I just looked it up for you, my cards power limit max is 100% and the lowest is 37%
     
     
    for example my 3070 (Vision OC)

    It doesn't matter if you think you have a strong password. RDP is always having issues with vulnerabilities and there could be tons of ones undiscovered which could let an attacker bypass your password and wreck havoc on not just your PC but anything else on your network too. It's a security NIGHTMARE to expose RDP to the world.

    Islam Ghunym reacted to WereCatf in Routing packets to certain ports into a specific WAN and others in the other WAN. (in dual WAN environment)   
    I'm not sure anything even exists. It's far easier to find each device separately and combine them. As an example, I don't have an ADSL-modem, but I do have a fiber-modem, which is connected to a PFsense-router. I have a separate 4G LTE - modem that is also connected to the PFsense-router, so there's dual-WAN. I then have a separate WiFi-router in the living-room, because that's where WiFi-connection will be most useful -- it would be far less useful where the PFsense-box is located.
     
    PFsense can be installed on practically any x86 PC. I currently still have an Up Squared 4GB RAM as mine, though I have its beefier replacement waiting on the side.
    You're kind of wanting options that will cost, no matter how you spin it. Besides which, high-quality networking just simply isn't cheap. I am on a tight budget myself, so I understand and I bought the 4G LTE - modem as used from local nerds and the WiFi-router is also a second-hand item in which I installed OpenWRT -- the original firmware was absolute garbage. Other than buying second-hand, there's not much that can be done and a setup similar to mine will cost you like 400€.
    That's a lot more difficult, since you have to know each and every port the game uses. I've never tried such setup, so I don't really have any advice there.

    You have control over what traffic the router accepts, not over what path the incoming data arrives via to the router. Typically the data would arrive the same route it went out, though, so that's not really an issue in and of itself.
    This is what I assumed from the get-go and why I said you'd need a router with more capable firmware. Such capabilities just aren't typically included in consumer-oriented gear. You could do this with e.g. OPNsense, PFsense or OpenWRT. The feature you're looking for is specifically called "policy-based routing."
    No, sorry. I am of the opinion that all such lower-level networking should be handled on devices meant for it, not on the desktop, and so I've never had any reason to dig into Windows's networking-configurations.

    You have no control over where incoming data arrives, that's impossible.
    You replace the ADSL-modem/router with something with more capable firmware.

    Shunt mods trick the GPU into thinking it's drawing less power than it actually is.
    You can still drop the core clock or voltage if you want to lower power usage.

    But you have a huge overhead,even with my Ryzen 5 2600 sucking 127W i have no problem running my memory at 3466MHz CL16.
    Since your CPU is Zen+ like mine you will have trouble getting to 3600MHz anyway,that's usually the limit for Zen+.

    Not really, so long as you're not getting a really shitty board. Anything with decent VRMs should handle the 8 core chips fine.

    Cool, maybe I can set 2 profiles, one with 4 cores higher clocks and other with all 8 cores. I will see if 6 cores are better. Thanks very much

    3800X is the better binned version of a 3700X, the 3600X is the better binned version of the 3600. I don't know how the 8c power consumption compares to the 6c, but I do know they can fit more cores in the same package with the same power due to chiplet binning (see the 3950X consuming about the same as the 3900X but having more cores).

    Not in the slightest. Intel Turbo Boost is pretty simple, it has a set multiplier it uses based off core load only. It never changes unless you hit throttling temps (around 100C), then it downclocks the CPU to protect itself. It's not "smart" at all, it's just a basic boost. 

    AMD's PBO (precision boost overdrive) that now comes with every Zen 2 chip out there is much "smarter". It takes into account what voltage and thermal headroom it has, then sees what cores and how many cores are under load, and how heavily they are loaded, then boosts accordingly. It's a far, far better boost than Intel's. 

    You've got them reversed, Intel has a basic boost function and mostly gains from manual overclocking, AMD's CPUs have a much, much better boost that usually results in the best performance for everything but a purely all core load with 80-100% on all said cores. 

    You'll be using neither if you want the lowest power consumption possible, so it doesn't even matter. For the use case you've claimed, you need to downclock the CPUs to the lowest clock where they still run your games acceptably, then undervolt as low as you can while keeping it stable. You can use offsets to have voltage automatically drop further when the CPU isn't under load as well, so idle consumption will be barely affected. Ryzen chips on the Zen 2 arch will be much better here, they have a higher IPC (similar performance at lower clocks than an Intel chip) and a very low power consumption for their performance already, and you could manually tune them to pull even less. An Intel chip forced into a power consumption that small would likely clock - and therefore perform - much worse. Especially since Intel's current gen IPC is lower than AMD's, meaning they need noticeably higher clocks to compete performance wise. That and they're based on ringbus, which scales terribly at much above 4 cores (and the 9900 series CPUs are 8c/16t) on both heat and power consumption.

    I can tell you right now that neither of those memory kits will work at the rated speeds in any Ryzen system. For high performance, you need Samsung B-die RAM, and those are not it.
     
    This is currently one of the best performers on the AMD platform: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-16gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232803
    Any of the 3600 with 16-16-16-36 timings (or 3200 14-14-14-34) should get you the best performance for that system.
