We Forgot About Luke - Switching to Intel Arc Pt. 2

 Share

Part 1 of Switching to Intel Arc ended up being almost entirely hardware-related, and Luke has a lot of complaints on the software side of things only one week into the 30-day challenge. Intel usually makes software that works, just how bad could Arc Control be?

Poor Luke.

 

At least he hasn't been fired 27 times like Colton. 😮

I, for one, liked the way this was done, with the two separate videos, it gave each of them more time to explain the problems and their solutions to them instead of editing snippets together.

 

Keep it up!

I won't get an Arc GPU but I am watching closely to where they take this. I think the GPU space needs a shakeup like what's happening in the CPU space with even more players joining than Intel and AMD and doing well with ARM/RISCV.

 

This challenge will be like the Linux one where the month is probably too short to fix anything, but there will be a lot for Intel to fix and work on afterwards. I've been a long time Linux user and after their videos, there has certainly been a noticable change in the polish of the desktop environment!

And I thought Linus's solution to the pin problem was unnecessarily risky. 😕

I'm still hoping for a Linux on Arc for a day challenge, but I'll settle for a segment on WAN show on whether they thought the OG Linux challenge or this Arc challenge was easier.

To be fair. The intro is one of the best ones in a long time.

 

But splitting the content in two like this were a good idea in general. Gives better time to go into the depths of the individual issues and focus on their respective solutions and issues.

 

Also this video gives a bit of a nostalgic feeling, despite being about something literally brand new. I suspect it is the whole Luke as a host thing tingling a nerve.

I recently won a Intel NUC 12 extreme kit and an A770. Was super excited to use it as my small VR unit only to run into exactly the same issues.

 

Hopefully Intel’s driver that Linus has been given works as my eyes will be very much glued to the screen to find out.

 

Surely Intel would not give him a driver to try that does not work….

Hopefully Intel releases a driver update for VR users, I know a lot of people (including myself) who use VR and would love a GPU of this price, but not being able to use their $1000+ headset because Intel doesn't have support for it yet is an absolute deal breaker. 

 

As of right now, Intel is not looking great lol.

I guess it makes sense now why some people was stuck rebooting due to the whole software being an overlay.

Thought it was just the ingame UI like other overlays, but the whole program being an overlay with so many issues?

Also that you can't download drivers from it... just redirected to their page which could cause issues in itself, as I don't trust intel that much and keep repeating.

I guess it was intel using the AMT, ME, when being on their site.

else its good its free software, but could be a lot better and when some of the UI can be decent in what it tries to do... at times.

I’d love to know more about the issues that were had while streaming with the encoder.

@Slick You presentation skills are fantastic and this video was way too short, I wanted to hear more!

Could you try again but with 1 PSU powering the whole system? Lets be honest 2 PSU's powering the system is a pretty unusual situation and is probably only used in mining rigs.

Differential voltages can wreak havoc on your system causing all kinds of weird (seemingly) unexplainable problems and as Luke said the PSU is so old and has been sitting on a shelf so it could've drifted way out of spec.

I'm also curious whether both PSU's were grounded together. Having differential ground of even worse a differential null is just asking for problems.

Just curious whether some of the problems (some are clearly driver related) weren't caused by Luke's PSU and not Intel.

I'm aware that this has 0 content value but maybe someone on the team could do a quick test and see if the problems are still there and then this can be discussed on the next WAN show.
