    That's pretty good! Do you have any before/after benchies to measure your uplift over stock?

    Best clock speed I get is about 1965 Mhz, anything more and the computer locks up. That is even with a 50%+ power limit.

    Well, I was bored today so I went ahead and risked the flash anyways. Reset my bios to defaults, disabled the antivirus and other stuff, flashed the bios and wouldn't you know? IT WORKED! :) Seems to be fine so far, without any issues and even...

    I think he was saying you can recover your card if you had a different, working card, to boot up with and run the utility. If it’s anything like nVidia’s cards the utility makes it hard for you to mess it up. I bios flash and when applicable,...

    If its anything like a Nvidia cad you can flash back with a second card.

    Yeah, I wouldn't take the risk without dual BIOS, but it does seem like a fun trick if done right.

    Kind of cool but, I am going to avoid it. No dual bios switch on my 5700 reference and even with the power play mod, I do not get much else out of the card, anyways. Now, on the R9 290 to 290X I used to have and the Vega 56 Reference to Vega 64...

    Haven't seen this posted yet. Not brave enough to try myself, but maybe someone more [H] wants to give it a go. [MEDIA]

  10. dragonstongue liked x509's post in the thread Cost advantage of HDDs over SSDs will last more than a decade.

    Since SSDs are semi-conductors, pricing will probably follow the typical semi-conductor volume/yield/price curves. Years ago, when I was close to this issue, I remember seeing curves showing how yields typically improve over time, and costs drop...

  11. dragonstongue liked chrcoluk's post in the thread Cost advantage of HDDs over SSDs will last more than a decade.

    HDD's will hold for several years at least. Every time you add bits to a nand cell the gains increasingly get smaller, e.g. MLC doubled capacity over SLC, but the gain for TLC was halved, and then halved again for QLC. Samsung's QVO came to...

  12. dragonstongue liked x509's post in the thread Cost advantage of HDDs over SSDs will last more than a decade.

    There are so many different use cases for large HDDs, or I should say, large amounts of storage. DrLobotomy has one use case. Mine is different. I have well over 1 TB of digital photos, which I need to access "on demand." And that's before I...

  13. dragonstongue liked Tsumi's post in the thread Cost advantage of HDDs over SSDs will last more than a decade.

    Pretty much. For anything over 2 tb, HDDs will hold their own for a while. The larger the capacity, the longer they will hold. Below 2 tb and especially below 1 tb, there's no point in buying a HDD over an SSD nowadays.

    True enough, but that argument only holds true in the mid-range and top-end enterprise market. For consumer devices, PC and laptops now, soon enough set-top boxes, it's game over.

    I believe was 80 or 85c for Nvidia(max redline 90c if caps are rated as used to, not want to push up there as kill life of product granted, Nv did very well with Pascal as an example to keep temps down performance maxed out as much possible often...

  18. dragonstongue liked cyklondx's post in the thread Forget Moore’s Law—Chipmakers Are More Worried About Heat and Power Issues.

    I personally feel that going for nanowires or fiber etc is just a marvel - but wouldn't make a good cpu/gpu with our current tech. Jim is taking us for a ride with nanowires. We'd be better to look at indium antimonide - we have exp printing...

  20. dragonstongue liked cyklondx's post in the thread Forget Moore’s Law—Chipmakers Are More Worried About Heat and Power Issues.

    Moore law states that the number of transistors on a microchip doubles every two years. A microchip refers to integrated circuit / a set of electronic components on a single unit. Thus stacking, 3d transistors, chiplets or size still apply...
