  1. I think we could use a video about GPU undervolting. I've seen increasing discussion about it recently because the Diablo II Resurrected and New World betas were really hard on GPU temperatures. Some GPUs died. Some people were too scared to run the games because if their GPU dies they can't afford to replace it. I've seen this conversation dozens of times: Bob> why is my gpu 10c hotter in this game than other games? Dave> mine too Steve> your cooling sux, git gud I saw a video of someone limiting their gpu voltage in New World and they
  2. @Martijn van P that bug is already logged at https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/issues/362
  3. If YouTube cared about security there wouldn't still be usernames in the urls of old accounts.
  4. Laptop webcams should all be required to have sliding covers for privacy. Don't mind webcams being included as people usually expect it, but do it repsonsibly. Moving from 720p to 1080p is overdue too.

  6. It'll be a new version of Windows, just like Windows 10 was to Windows 7.
  7. Risk when changing BIOS to UEFI or CSM=Disabled: NVIDIA 10-series and earlier GPUs can end up with no display output with CSM disabled/UEFI boot enabled. This is because the outputs are prioritized DVI->HDMI->DP. For example if you use DP and lose display output you can plug in an HDMI monitor to recover. Then you can install DisplayPort firmware update from NVIDIA.

  8. This needs a warning because sometimes after updating this firmware the next boot results in nothing on the display on a previously working system. After a hard reset due to lack of options the second boot was successful for me. Just making the point that this is not without risk as people are scrambling to meet Windows 11 requirements.
  9. @Tib44 maybe the same as this: https://github.com/rcmaehl/WhyNotWin11/issues/57
  10. Yeah pretty annoying fixing the thing and having it still say not good enough.
  11. Microsoft have removed references to hard vs soft requirements. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/windows-11-specifications https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/windows-11/ And they are doubling down on the CPU list on twitter. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors https://twitter.com/dispensa/status/1408478280848527360
  12. If you have this issue please post what monitor you have. If you tried another monitor and it worked post that model too. Mine: I disabled CSM and my monitor stopped working. Had to plug in a spare monitor to get into the BIOS and enabled CSM again. Monitor: ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ (DisplayPort, G-SYNC Compatible) Spare Monitor: Dell U2715H (HDMI) GPU: NVIDIA GTX 1080
