    Snowarch got a reaction from himanshusharmazzzz in Hacking Nvidia's Drivers!   
    well, can you use linux? since your gpu is normal, it should work better than a p102. just leave the hdmi or whatever on onboard. 
    for ubuntu boot from usb and install. use these commands
    sudo apt-get add ppa:graphics-team" && sudo apt-get update
    then click dash and search additional drivers and choose most recent one. 450 is beta, 440 is stable. shutdown reboot after the drivers installed, and it should work fine. assuming 20.04/ most recent version. also can't, as far as i know, overclock on 440. i have driver 418 xconfig for intel igpu prime, that can oc, but even less gaming compatability.
    would recommend duelboot or dueldrive if possible. incase this fails.

    Snowarch got a reaction from ShrimpBrime in FPS gradually lowers for no apparent reason.   
    assuming its an nvidia card, if its amd please ignore the green with envy part.
    use afterburner and change your fancurve, or if on linux, mangohud + green with envy to check for downclocking, and in driver settings make sure its set to maximum performance. could be a powersaving thing. try taskmanager to make sure no igpu is being swapped to as well. 9fps consistant sounds like an igpu. i am kinda taking a shot in the dark here so if youre using something like a threadripper that lacks an igpu, sorry.

    Snowarch got a reaction from lairiak in Erratic and unnatural GPU usage on RTX 2060 Super, please help   
    gpuz check that. and check for throttle. your driver settings may be set to adaptive clocking where it down and up clocks the gpu. mines like that on linux at high resolutions. supposedly 100% usage at desktop in 4k gwe(like gpu afterburner), yet games work fine.

    Can you confirm the games not using igpu? sounds way too low fps to be throttle.

    depends on os. theres anbox for ubuntu.
    for windows theres 
    android x86 in a virtual machine, ld player, Nox emulator(if you can find the lagit site) and ko player, and andydroid those are just a few diffrent android emulators i've heard of,
    but asside from android x86 and anbox, the rest i've not personally tried .

    Snowarch got a reaction from idh1oi12jkl31jk2bgve3jk12b in What's the deal with package managers? Snap, Flatpak?   
    appimige: Like a windows app after download. you right click, make executable, and can click from there. then itd integrsted to system.
    snap: like windows app store's netflix. web apps, but they're built into your system's core meaning they update with os and have loops on file system.
    flatpak: you can use it for system utilities, like Gpu overclock tool.(may be wrong on this one) and they take more steps to integrate into your system, as they don't loop like the snaps. 
    Usually apps in ubuntu, can't speak for mint, are in .deb formats. meaning you download a .deb file, then the data in the file will then give a front end/gui to install it. think of the .deb as a " box" for the snap, and the click as a tape remover. or you type "sudo apt install " appname" and it'll do the .deb stuff in one command.

    @cgexe the f in your cpu name means it lacks an igpu. without that you can't make the card work.
    i saw the 1050 and 1030 cards in your system. you could try passthrough with kvm and linux, but its vary difficult. i think theres a guide how to do that somewhere. i've never successfully done it tho.

    Snowarch got a reaction from mineblaster in Minecraft Server   
    well, im on linux(ubuntu, with gui), and would recommend it, uses less idle/ on fresh boot resources
    you need a static ip. the server itself plain vanilla uses about 120-ish mb before a player joins, maybe 50mb per player. mods can use 500mb easily before a player joins.
    i host on a quadcore celeron  with quadcore 1.1ghz, and sodimm ddr3 so yes should be okay.
    • download the minecraft server.jar file, and openjdk. i use jdk 8 but any version should do.
    •put it where you want the server file to be stored. 
    •cd into where the file is: in my case its
    cd ~/Documents/mc2
     then start the server with some ram. 
    • use /stop in the server gui, then add the server ip to server properties folder.
    ••The server must be stopped when you edit the properties.
    for security, you could let your friends join/who you want, add them to whitelist, and then enable whitelist. 
    ° my server specs and ram estimate
    i give 6gb of ram and get about 2% usage on vanilla 1.12.2 , so overkill but something like this should be a good estimate
    120mb + (50mb*number of players) + some extra ram for varience.
    my net speed is about 29 on speed test, and blocks respawn a second then break, so little faster than that. 
    if you have the wrong ip the server will insta crash. you can change it in properties if this happens. host pc can't join the server in my expirence.
    you need to right clock the .jar file and make it executable as program in properies. also theres a command you need to start the server with custom ram ammount. when i say cd and commands all thats done in terminal. leave the no gui out of the command. /stop in a linux terminal causes issues.
    edit: 25565 is traditionally the minecraft port.

    Snowarch got a reaction from papajo in linux friendly benchmark thread(windows users welcome with Opengl mode benchmarks)   
    the ingame benchmarks tend to be inaccurate, at least for me, (60 fps in gta benchmark on old card, 40 fps ingame) but alright I'll change it to "unengine opengl benchmarking thread" 
    and will add a number behind the score by page number of the thread so all this can be seen in the screenshot/format. @papajo
    so scores on main thread will look like this, but since page is known, easier to find.

    Snowarch reacted to Eigenvektor in how to allocate more ram to minecraft server on laptop   
    You have a typo in your command line
    -Xmx6144 - This tells java it can use a maximum of 6144 byte of memory
    -Xms6144M - This tells java to reserve an initial amount of 6144 Megabyte of memory
    That is a contradiction In other words you need to add the "M" at the end of Xmx as well.
