  1. ??????

  2. I just switched from my Galaxy S7 to a OnePlus 5T. And to address your biggest concern, no, none of my SMS messages transferred over to my new phone. I set up my phone by using Tap and Go, which was introduced back in Lollipop. When I setup my new phone, pretty much everything transferred over. Photos were previously backed up by Google Photos (however, they are not stored locally on my device), for music, I already have a subscription to Play Music, so music could redownload quite quickly. Apps were all downloaded and reinstalled as soon as I first booted up my phone. Contacts were already ba
  3. I think there's a serious disconnect between an SoC's raw performance versus the Real World User Experience of a phone. OK, the raw performance of the phone under benchmarks didn't change, and that's still good, but benchmarks are not the way to measure a phone's smoothness (or how much it stutters). I wish the researcher would have contacted one of the writers at XDA-Developers to learn more about real world UX and tools to investigate how smooth a phone really is, such as GPU Profiling
  4. I think "BOTH." is a very valid answer. To be honest, Broadwell was just for mobile CPUs, and there were very few desktop CPUs on that platform. In my mind, it was practically just a skip in generation. They could have just done that again, and not waste time and resources on a KABY LAKE REFRESH. Instead, just delay Coffee Lake a little bit so we can get that 6-core goodness
  5. This is exactly why I'm confused about X299 replacing Z270.
  6. So I've heard about Intel's insane Skylake-X lineup, from the Core i7-7800X all the way up to the Core i9-7980XE behemoth and their X299 platform. Another thing that I found interesting are the i7-7700K and i5-7600K refreshes, the Kaby Lake-X i7-7740X and the i5-7640X running on the same X299 platform. If the Kaby Lake-X refreshes are supposed to replace the 7700K and 7600K, (you know, to move everyone over to X299 (with a slightly more expensive motherboard) for the future upgrade paths) what does this mean for Z270? Does Intel expect everyone to hop over t
  7. I googled when Infinite Warfare was released. Nov 4, 2016. It's only been 7 months. Goddamn that game flopped.
  8. Hey, you wanna watch U.S. Politics with me?
  9. Oh no, I have a spare 1 TB hard drive in storage. I'll be using that to store everything. I just wanted a boot SSD.
  10. I'd prefer a MicroATX computer, as I have a firm suspicion that I will be lugging this computer around with me to college.
  11. Unless I can update the BIOS without another LGA 1151 CPU, that is a problem. I don't want to get a skylake CPU just to update the BIOS. If I can download that BIOS update from my dying X51 and stick it on a USB stick, that's fine. I just need a guide for that, as I've never flashed a new BIOS before. Do you have a specific card in mind, I don't want to spend much more than 600 dollars.

  13. So I dusted my PC out yesterday. And it's still crashing, especially on Rainbow 6. Funnily enough, I expected it to crash while playing comp CSGO, but it didn't. I'm going to call Alienware support tomorrow and see what they can do for me. Do you think it's the power supply? Do you have any further advice for what I can do?
  14. I'm actually surprised that Apple responded.
