    thermalgoop got a reaction from fluidz in Quake II RTX went from zero to hero on Pascal with 1.4 update.   
    Of course, when they said you can run Quake II RTX on a Pascal card, I had to try it. On my 1070Ti (2010mhz core) I barely managed double digit frame rates at 720p when the game first became available alongside consumer Turing cards. 
    Now, with the new Vulkan RT update, I get 30-45 fps with a bunch of goodies turned on and high illumination (still at 720p). 
    Even at low res, it's kinda neat, and now very playable.

    The best way is to run an Ethernet cable. The next best thing is Moca (But you have no coax), there third option is a toss up between power line adapters and just using WiFI. 
     
    Nothing can be done. WiFi has higher latency. If you want a better connection run some Ethernet cable. Outside of that your not going to be able to fix the issue.

    What's your power supply situation? An underpowered PSU for the components may not just simply trip the overcurrent protection, especially if it's right on the edge of what the PSU can handle. When a computer starts up it sends a spike of voltage to all of the components, which also draw heavy amperage to get started, which is why you may notice the lights dimm momentarily in your house when you start up a beastly rig. If your PSU isn't able to send enough volts and amps down to every component now that the 3090 is in the mix, you may notice strange errors that don't seem to be related to any changes you've made. There may just not be enough power going to the mobo for your RAM to function properly after your CPU and GPU hog it all. 
    If your PSU is multi-rail, you could try reconfiguring which cables your GPU and Mobo + CPU supplementary power are plugged into. If you have an AIO or liquid cooling setup, switch back to the box cooler, and unplug any other unnecessary components like spinning rust and other add-in cards. Undervolting and underclocking your CPU & RAM may help alleviate some of the stress on your PSU. If any of that makes a difference, it is a pretty clear-cut indication that your system needs more juice.

    thermalgoop got a reaction from Kevind4xD in Best way to connect to Ethernet   
    If your issue is that the WiFi signal is weak, or you simply need some ethernet-only devices connected, you can get a cheap used AP that is supported by DD-WRT and use the AP Client Bridge mode. You can place the bridged AP in a more advantageous spot (in a hallway, by the stairs, whatever) for the WiFi signal, and run ethernet cables a much shorter distance. I did this when I was in middle/high school and my dad had the AP in his cave of an office in the most remote part of the house from my room.

    thermalgoop reacted to Action_Johnson in Need advice on how to optimize lights and camera setup for perfect white background product shooting   
    <<Commerical photog with 15 years industry experience here.
     
    If you want perfectly clean on-white images, best is to shoot the product on gray or suspended with clamps/arms/prongs/on-plexi/whatever (so the surface doesn't reflect as much light or color into the product), make a custom white balance to neutralize color and nail your highlights and shadows using a gray card like an X-Rite Colorchecker. Then in post do a clipping path in photoshop and knock it out. Drop a shadow of whatever shape/size is appropriate, and that will let you save the image on any color or shade of surface, be it white, red, even transparent so it can be comp'd onto graphics for ads.
     
    The way you're shooting the product is fine, you don't have any real lighting control with those ebay tents, but at minimum it'll give you a clean enough starting point where knockouts and dropshadows are a reasonable next step.
     
    I also suggest outsourcing that post-work. It's extremely time-consuming and there are many outlets online who can turnaround hundreds of products within a day or two for cents per image. That's what the big agencies do...
