    Kon-Tiki reacted to Stahlmann in Question about DLSS   
    It's a software feature that needs dedicated hardware, so basically it's both. Who knows what DLSS 3.0 will bring if it will ever get to that. 2.0 is still brand new.

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from PedroAssuncao20 in WiFi Antenna   
    You need an antenna with a SMA connector if you want to continue using your onboard WiFi. A "USB antenna" in the sense of it only being an antenna connecting to your onboard wireless card does not exist. Instead those "antennas" are actually USB WiFi cards with the card built into the antenna itself.
    Go for whichever option you like best but if your onboard card works you could just as well get an Antenna with SMA connector and continue using it (should be more reliable than a USB connected one).
     
    Edit: There are also antennas connecting right to the SMA connector on your card without a cable, might be worth a look.

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from CowsGoMoo32 in SSD not formatting "The format did not complete successfully"   
    I've had a similar problem (only with a thumb drive instead of a SSD) using the graphical formatting tool. For me the following procedure helped:
    Open a terminal window/ command prompt and type "diskpart" (without the " at the beginning and the end). List your system disks with the command "list disk". You should see a list of your attached storage devices. Choose the SSD you want to format (be careful to select the right drive!) by typing "select disk <disknumber>" Remove any previous partitions with "clean" Create a new partition table using "create partition primary". After the process is finished you can end diskpart by typing "exit" Now you should be able to format the drive using the standard GUI option I hope that resolves your problem

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from eskamobob1 in why do my wireless headphones sound terrible in wired use?   
    It could be an issue with your mobiles/ PC's DAC, so a dedicated one might be a/ the solution to go for. Before you run to Amazon and buy one, however: If you have the chance to go to a local audio shop (provided the current COVID situation allows for that) I'd try to test out an external DAC before buying one blind sighted. They might also have a known good 3.5mm -> 2.5mm cable lying around that you can test your headphones with.

    As long as it has not dried up it can be used with a new SSD.

    For what you described 2GB seems fine indeed. I haven't worked with video that much unfortunately so that isn't something I can help you with. A google search will, however, guide you to a lot of DIY guides on this topic.
    As far as ad blocking is concerned I've made good experiences with Pihole a while ago. It's easy to install and maintain and does the job really well. For a NAS you could go for OpenMediaVault. It has a powerful web-based administration interface and makes configuring different shares relatively easy (once you've gotten the hang of it). There are also good tutorials out there about how to set it up.
    Time controlled boot has to be implemented via external hardware as far as I know. But again, Google (or any other search engine of your liking ;)) is your friend in this regard.
     
    All the best with your project
    PS.: Don't forget to take care of a backup of you NAS regularly (can be configured in OpenMediaVault using a second drive)

    I agree with @BrinkGG. It should be no major problem, of course under the assumption that you're not going to serve a whole company network off it
    Generally the Pi 4's CPU shouldn't let you down for most tasks, obviously depending on the workload. If you're planning on doing a lot of media encoding/ decoding for your Cameras (multiple cameras running simultaneously) while having a lot of traffic from the network tracker you might run into performance bottlenecks, though.
     
    That said, if this is what I think it is (a home network project ) then I'd see no reason why it shouldn't work. Take @mahyar's advice and go with the 4 GB version and you should be off to the races good to go.
    As far as stability is concerned: It should be no problem, at least I find my Pi 4 to run as a server very reliably.

    Adblocker and NAS: yes. Easily.
    Camera viewer and Network tracker: no... well it depends. I wouldn't trust a single rPi to run all of these services at once, but if the usage is small enough, I see no reason not to.
    Do you have any idea what you want to run specifically for each workload?
    (piHole for adblock, motionEYE for camera, etc)

    Kon-Tiki reacted to jaslion in Late 2020 VR Build   
    Same story ryzen 5000 is coming out so well wait for it. Amd always discounts their old stuff pretty aggresively so good deal anyways.
     
    Waiting for the new cards isn't really an issue as nivida does it to build up stock and well you'll have 3 gpu's launching in quick succession + the current rollout of 3080's and 3090's is slowly saturating the desire so stock shouldn't be much of an issue.

    Kon-Tiki reacted to jaslion in Late 2020 VR Build   
    The golden thing to do now is wait. No joke 2-3 new gpu launches within a month that would be perfect for your budget + ryzen 5000 which would be better than whatever is out now for the same price.

    Kon-Tiki reacted to HelpfulTechWizard in New pc build. Thoughts?   
    the ryzen 5000 announce on the 8th and should be available to buy on the 20th or 27th. I think you could get a 3080 in there if you wanted, by going for a 5700x (the successor to the 3700x) as you dont need a 900 cpu. also, the xt cpus some pre oced, and thats it, so I would get the normal x cpu.

    Kon-Tiki reacted to svmlegacy in Tell me what I need, fight what I want.   
    This setup is plenty powerful enough to watch twitch. Clean up your OS and remove bloatware.
     
    3900X is way overkill for pure gaming. More than 8 cores is not reccomened from a value point of view, especially when aiming at 60 Hz.
    3080 FE is also major overkill for 1080p/1440p gaming.
     
    My advice is to clean up/reinstall your OS, and wait.

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from Ben17 in My laptop CPU is Stuck in 1.20 GHz After upgrading from Windows 7 to 10   
    Hi R4ZEL
     
    That is a strange problem. As far as the hard drive usage is concerned: During startup your OS loads different data into RAM, so seeing a spike in usage during this time is normal. Especially if you have a spinning disk (as opposed to a SSD) this leads to sluggish behaviour during this time. Your screenshot shows disk usage being in the range of 13% which seems fine to me.
     
    As for the processor I unfortunately don't have an immediate idea about what could have caused it. I'd therefore suggest you check your BIOS settings to see whether some setting seems suspicious with respect to CPU clock speeds.
     
    I hope that helps :)

    Kon-Tiki reacted to Haro in RAM: Speed vs Latency   
    1. both matter, some workloads prefer bandwidth over latency and others prefer latency over bandwidth. but both are important, for example, a 3200 cl16 kit performs about the same when it comes to latency as a 3600 cl18 kit. 
    That's just wrong, 2666 is the base speed for the imc, meaning that anything over that is an overclock to the imc and is techincally not guaranteed, but assuming you are using a Z series board (which you are) you can run higher speeds.

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from rRandomsig in Any idea abt this boot order   
    Hi,
    have you tried reinstalling popOS? If so, did the same thing happen again?
    One possible explanation for the SQUASHFS error might be that you pulled the installation medium too early leading the system to look for something on it that it obviously could not find. I would suspect that it shouldn't be an issue moving on, though, as the installation process should have finished by the point you rebooted anyway. If you want to be 100% sure, just reinstall popOS.
    If you choose to reinstall, wait for popOS to tell you that you can safely remove the installation medium after clicking the reboot option at the end of the installation (something like "Remove installation medium and press enter to reboot.").
     
    As far as the boot order is concerned I don't see what should be wrong with it. As far as the boot logo is concerned I'd not worry if I didn't see it
     
    Hope that helps. Best regards,

    1. Almost certainly not, unless you damage it during installation.
    2. Depends on the model. They do have a lifespan though as the pump will eventually fail. Compared to an air cooler, which can last basically forever, other than just replacing a fan if it dies.

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from Ohsnaps in Ubuntu vs Mint   
    Updating between major OS versions is always something that can fail, independently of the OS. I've updated my system (Mint) four times or so (I believe I started out with 18.3) up to the recent version. And so far it still runs fine

    Kon-Tiki got a reaction from Ohsnaps in Ubuntu vs Mint   
    I've been using Mint for a little over two years now as my main OS and am very pleased. Also, development of Mint is nowhere near of being stopped. The contrary is the case according to the Mint blog. I also haven't heard complaints about Mint being more unstable than Ubuntu.
    Regarding the OPs problem: I'd recommend reinstalling Mint if that's an option for you, or as @Ohsnaps recommended, try a live USB stick with both Ubuntu and Mint 19.3. Be informed about the snap package system being part of Ubuntu 20.04, though. I'm personally not a fan of it (and thus happy that it won't be enabled by default in the upcoming Mint 20).
