  1. Yes it CAN take that long. It all depends on what kind of encryption they used. Stuff like AES-256, good luck getting like 10k tries per second. MD5 can easily hit 1M tries even on older hardware.
  2. Oh yea has happened before. He knows that. Madison even said that to him straight up her teacher did that
  3. Dear rx480 of mine. don't die or i'm screwd. If even Nvidia goes like, it's all inflated so we gonna straight up ask stupid prices you know it's going to take years to change that. Like, they aren't hiding it anymore or lying about it. It seems like they accepted reality and went "this is how it is, we know" without any fake optimism or anything like that which they have done in the past.
  4. December 2019, that's when i switched from Intel to AMD so clean install was a very good idea. Probably would have worked anyway but still, clean install was to be on the safe side
  5. You don't HAVE to go wireless. That's up to personal preference. And yes BT call quality, not that good. Even with BT 5.0 these days being a MASSIVE improvement compared to 4.0, it's still ass. But you can get one that does both. The one I have can be used with a normal USB cable which turns it into a normal wired headset. Great for calls + music. But if I only want to listen to music and walk around the house, switch to BT and off you go. I have to say if you only listen to music, BT 5.0 and a good headset is really not that bad.
  6. Unless you want like RGB look-at-me gaming whatever. Buy one for the commercial market. I use a jabra evolve2 65, absolutely NOT for gamers but for meetings and calls all day long. And it's great! I honestly would never go back to gamer headsets.
  7. What happens if you only use the second monitor? Just as a test.
  8. 4k 120, even for a gaming display that's some steep requirements. If you use it for mainly video editing, drop the 120hz. If you don't want local dimming stuff, you should probably go for OLED or QLED panels and i don't even want to look at the prices for them... And I think QLED still uses local dimming, maybe? What graphics card are you using?
  9. The run are 17-30 seconds. Doesn't that mean it can do the whole benchmark while being in the turbo timeslot where it won't stay during actual gaming? I'm gonna wait until guys like GN review these things because something seems off...
  10. Y not ask the google? https://askinglot.com/what-is-the-subnet-mask-in-dotted-decimal-format
  11. Depends, you can also find LiPo batteries these days. Powerbanks don't need to deal with high-current loads (unless it's a very strong one, but those usually don't discharge to 3V) while in devices, you can easily see loads of 1.5-2A, you don't want those loads to happen at 3.1V. They are usually spikes, not constant loads which batteries usually don't handle very well because more amps usually makes the voltage dip. It's better to be safe than sorry. Just don't take the risk and upgrade the battery.
  12. Well there is a reason why you shouldn't discharge a phone battery to 3V because if you do, they can go poof (and they will, experienced it before, you don't want that). If you want more battery life, give it a bigger battery. The device shouldn't care about size, only voltage.
  13. Why not hook an LED up to the battery until you have 3V?
  14. Are there any plans to test the iGPU on these things? Not that they are fast but, are the drivers like, functional? Xe graphics drivers were not there when the cpu's launched and the flickering of the intel laptop at 1:03 has me worried...
  15. This might sound like a stupid idea but. If you physically move the whole thing to a different room, does it still do that?
