  1. Good evening, I really hope this is the right subforum for a question like this. If not, please tell me. I have question concerning AWS cloud computing. I know there are a lot of texts on the net but they all start from this 12 months free tier option and they won't cover my question specifically. Maybe because that's just automatically happening, maybe it's because I understood something wrong. I'm just really confused right now and no matter what I click on AWS I can't really get any good answer. So I created my first AWS account today. At first you
  2. What I'm wondering about is, although they say the GPU experience is equivalent to let's say a GTX 1080 for the cheapest package, Linus still showed here that they run Quadro Graphics cards. Does that mean that the Shadow user will get benefits of Quadro Drivers when running a virtual machine from them? You know Quadro Driver supports like improvements in some softwares like Solidworks or I think some of the creator aspects of HDR are limited to the use of Quadro Drivers (HDR in open gl applications vs directx,if this is still the case for NVidia). Because then this would be an interesting and
  3. Hi, I'm not even sure if that belongs here, but I guess since it's about external hard drives and an issue it would make sense. So I was trying to copy about half a terrabyte of files yersterday to my friend's mac book. As I'm using Windows and don't care much about formatting new external storage media, I didn't really care for the format and kept it at exFat. He, as a Mac user chose NTFS of course, but we both have basically the same external harddrive vom Intenso. Now, he connected both drives to his USB hub and tried to copy the files vom a to b.
  4. Not really sure if that one belongs here but concerning those ROG build-offs it would acutally be really interesting if the winner of the contest could team up with Dennis to build the PC. Because there is often that gap between the contestant being either too shy or not experienced enough and Linus who then either just gives the correct answer or does it himself. But it would be even funnier to see someone team up with Dennis for a project like that
  5. Did you check the Registry if the Winlogon is still set to Explorer.exe and did you try to install like a USB Virus scanner, yet. I remember when I once had a nasty trojan that would kill the Task Manager instantly and prevent me from getting the explorer.exe, I had this antivirus software whos name I just forgot. Was it superantispyware or so. If I remember correctly it always downloaded with a different name so the trojan wouldn't notice it directly by name. When I ran it and cleaned everything I could open my taskmanager again but the winlogon was still not set to explorer.exe.
  6. I'm a bit confused about those files they were playing in 4K there. At first Linus talked about 500 Mbit/s for all 16 files, so around 30 Mbit/s per file or 3.75 Mb/s. And then Jake said each video in 4K had about 500 Mbit/s or let's say around 60 Mb/s. So we are actually talking about video bitrate here, right? Because I've got a couple of 4K movies on my PC and the MediaInfo tool also tells me about the 'Overall Bit Rate', which is, depending on the compression and format usually around 50 to sometimes up to 80 Mb/s. So that would be within the typical range of a 4K movie file
  7. Okay, little update on the topic. I was able to select a fast VPN from my ExpressVPN list and selected Parsec only and it worked. The quality is astonishing, it's super snappy with practically no visible latency, the colors are all great and correct, no pixels or even bigger chunks, sound is great. I even watched a 4K video that of course had to be converted to 1080p in that process and it was really fluid at probably close to 60 FPS (at least to my eyes) with no visible chunks like you see it in streams. So thank you for all your suggestions. I will probably stick to a combination
  8. Okay so I will try to setup the connection with Radmin tomorrow at work again. I might have just found something. I also got a subscription to ExpressVPN that I'm rarely using. Turns out, you can define what apps should use the VPN. I tried to set it up via AnyDesk on my WorkPC and it actually worked for steam. Without the VPN I could not log into Steam but with the App specific VPN activated it worked! While my IP adess for the browser stayed the same and I still have access to our intranet. If that works out for Parsec as well I just take a fast VPN and set it to Parsec only and
  9. I did as instructed on their website but no chance. I guess I need to enable a VPN on my work pc for that. Steam for example won't launch as well unless I use a VPN, that is something I wanted to avoid because then I'd always have to login to the VPN once I need something from my HomePC. I don't really understand however, why some applications work while others won't
  10. That sounds interesting, what do I need to download, I can see three installations, a portable version, a remote version and a version for this pc. I guess it needs to run on both machines, so can I just get the portable on both PCs?
  11. I know, I just also saw that you can have a free version of it. I tried it, together with Wayke but none of them seems to work for me. Both cannot establish a connection. I fear that the firewall at work might be blocking it? So some options work and some won't I don't get why TeamViewer and AnyDesk work while others can't reach their Server.
  12. Hi Guys, So I've got two monitors at my work and usually I'm only using one of them. That's why I started to use TeamViewer on my HomePC to do things at work and vice versa. This is because I'm often doing things like rendering private stuff at home or doing calculations. Sometimes I even do a calculation on my home pc and then take the result to my work PC as my work PC isn't as fast. On the other hand sometimes I need to wait for a measurment to be finished and I can also do the results at home. As my way to work is quite far I try to use as much time a
  13. Hi, I hope this is the correct forum. After my first two threads my 2070 Super arrived today. I popped it in and (thanks again to everyone who helped me here) it worked! I installed the latest drivers, everything is fine. I did some Benchmarking, the values are perfect and fluid 60 Hz (Monitor maximum). I also changed the display to 10 bpc. At first I could not find the option in the NVidia control panel, then I switched from RGB to YCbcr422 and I got the option now and switched to 10 bpc. I hope 4.2.2 was the correct one. HDR works as well although
  14. Hi, Now having finally descided on what to do with my system I ordered a 2070 Super yesterday. When it arrives I want to be ready to quickly plug it in. So I've got a question about the installation. Generally for NVidia they say that you can just swap the GPU and install the drivers but my jump is quite big from a 780 Ti to a 2070 Super. Can I still just unplug the 780 Ti, install the 2070 super, start off with the 780 Ti latest driver and do a driver update on GeForce experience? And after that do I need to uninstall the 780 Ti driver or even DDU it?
  15. HI, Thank you for your answer. I already checked that site but they won't guarantee that things are compatible. To be just on the safe side I wanted to ask here as well. About that bottlenecking, I have heard about this of course although I think the core i7 is still somewhat okay compared to i5 combinations that some people choose. One question about that however, can this CPU or any other part bottlenecking actually get me lower GPU speed than the original 780 Ti? Because I read about people who upgraded and got less than expected. But I don't know what
