  1. Upgrading to 2 sticks of the same brand/model/size and installing them in the correct RAM slots on your motherboard will make your ram faster (dual channel => more bandwidth). Memory capacity will not make your computer go faster unless you were running out of memory in the first place. If you buy a RTX3080 then you should also buy a new power supply (600W is not enough). Nvidia recommends 750W or more: https://www.thefpsreview.com/2020/09/03/nvidia-reiterates-750-w-psu-requirement-for-geforce-rtx-3090-and-geforce-rtx-3080/.
  2. Unless you are running out of memory, adding more RAM will not make Blender run faster (more bandwidth / lower latency will).
  3. I’m not sure why it’s this slow but you should not expect 3000MB/s writes. According to their marketing material, the drive should be able to write at 1050MB/s. The 3000MB/s write number is for the 4TB model (see attachment; image taken from Amazon.com).
  4. It was probably stuck at some lower clock speed. I had this issue before with an Intel processor and the Intel XTU (overclocking) software. Because of some bug it decided to heavily downclock the CPU cache reducing system performance.
  5. A RX5500 is about the same speed as a RX590
  6. Maybe you could install a separate instance of Windows 10 to your HDD (create a small partition to install it to). Then copy the files in the WindowsApps folder from the new installation to the old installation.
  7. What I'm saying is that it has the bandwidth and devices might support it, BUT it is not officially part of the specification.
  8. According to the HDMI spec website, HDMI 1.4b is limited to 120hz at 1920x1080(so anything above is out of spec): https://www.hdmi.org/spec/hdmi1_4b
  9. I think HDMI 1.4 can only do 144Hz at 1920x1080 not 2560x1080. Following the logic in the top rated post of this Reddit topic the theoretical maximum frame rate is 98Hz (272e6 / (2560 * 1080)).
  10. I'm currently running the RM550x with a GTX1080 (and AMD 3900X CPU) and it's fine. Except for extreme overclocking you should not be running into any issues. I did check with a power meter once and it showed like 250W of total system power usage so I'm not worried at all.
  11. Bought a 2 year old Volkswagen High Up! to drive to work everyday. I don't need a larger/faster car since I'm traveling alone anyways. Just wish Volkswagen would have put a small turbo in it to boost performance (advertised as 60HP but more like 20/25HP at normal RPMs) and to improve the fuel economy on the highway. The fuel usage goes up quite dramatically over 90 kph which means I tend to stick behind lorries, which is quite relaxing actually.
  12. Since this is for professional use you should look at professional hardware. Both AMD as well as Nvidia sell hardware specifically for this use case. Not only do those cards support way more displays per card, they also come with extra features such as unifying all displays into one virtual monitor and bezel correction: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/design-visualization/solutions/nvidia-mosaic-technology/ https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/eyefinity-professionals With some Displayport hubs it might be possible to connect 9 displays to a single GPU (if it support
  13. If I were you I would just contact Asus directly and ask what the exact problem could be and whether it can be fixed with a future bios update. Also, running 3 GPUs on a low-end board is kinda weird already, especially 3 mid-range graphics cards (instead of 1 or 2 high-end ones).
  14. Looking at the manual (page 9 / ix), I think it is expected for the second slot to run in PCIe-3 4x mode: https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketAM4/ROG_STRIX_B450_F_GAMING/E14401_ROG_STRIX_B450-F_GAMING_UM_WEB.pdf The 3rd slot is running of the motherboard chipset at PCIe-2 4x speeds. I assume that with the 3900x (which introduced a lot of changes with respect to I/O) running a GPU over the chipset (on this motherboard?) is broken.
