    Where does SSRTGI need to be checked on?
  • R
    Hmm I tried but failed. The latest game ready driver but I don't see SSRTGI or anything like it in Game Filters when pressing ALT+F3 in the game. I look on nvidia's page for Freestyle too and don't see God of War listed so maybe that's why...

    Any RTX, I have the Studio driver installed so can't try SSRTGI right now but am about to install the game ready driver and give it a go as it looks cool. I've been told it gets even better a bit later on too so I cannot wait.

    Before it came out on PC I knew nothing about this game, hell I knew nothing about it even after I bought it other than watching a trailer and liking how it looked and reading forum posts. I'm only 7.9 hours through but it's nice and fun for...

    The funny thing is the Samsung Magician app reads only one temp, so you'd assume it was the controller but in actual fact it's the memory chips if checking side by side with an app that reads more sensor data like HWINFO64. Here's mine currently...

    From my understanding in recent times since upgrading my OS drive from a SATA Intel 730 series 480GB Skulltrail SSD to this Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1TB is that NVMe SSDs are designed to run hot for the memory chips whilst the controller should not...

    That is quite a lot to take in! Interesting though and yeah since those days of talks about SSD endurance being a thing, things have moved on drastically for the better where as you say, it's a total non issue now and SSD endurance is often...

    Speaking of SSD long term reliability, Puget have now released their rundown of what they do each year, Samsung SSDs come out top for reliability, basically 0% failure rate. https://www.tomshardware.com/news/hardware-reliability-puget-systems-2021

    If it was a real world issue then can you imagine all those USB flash drives out there that would be empty on a daily basis because most people don't use them all the time?! He'll even some retail drives that come with bundled software on the...

    Ahh a bit of confusion there oops!

    I take back some of the info in my last post! I had to fact check myself lol and looked at the Samsung website again, the 870 QVO uses MLC chips: "Samsung V-NAND 4bit MLC" -...

    That is probably what I read about then! yeah my old Corsair AIOs all had round plates!

    My 8TB SSD is a Samsung 870 QVO, so QLC 3D Vnand or whatever the terminology is for them. It has an 80GB write cache buffer though so as long as I'm not writing a large chunk of data in one go that is above 80GB then it won't slow down to around...

    Hmm can only speak from my own experience in the reads/writes department as have been steadily upgrading the OS SSDs on the same Windows install via cloning for years ever since SSDs became a mass thing. The last SATA SSD I had on this Windows...

    Yep that's the one! I saw it talked about on reddit but don't know exactly which models that applied to at the time as I had already ordered the Arctic Freezer II.

    I had no need for them any more really, there were 13TB in total and I wiped them over the course of a week (dban, natch) and sold them on Facebook marketplace where they were picked up within a day or two of the ads going up lol. Once the 5TB...

    Gigabyte has this option set to auto by default but auto is off it seems until the BIOS deems it worthy? If I manually set it to enabled then Cinebench R23 takes my 12700K to 100 degrees fairly quick. With it on Auto the temp does not go above...

    Someone on the OcUK forums recently took off their Dark Rock as it had mounting issues and used a Noctua air cooler they had which fit perfectly. Temps were 30 idle and 70s running Cinebench. So a single or smaller AIO cooler is definitely...

    With Gigabit internet I decided to ditch the bulk of my media storage drives and go 99% solid state as anything I need can be downloaded quickly or just streamed, so now my storage is 8TB Samsung SATA SSD, 1TB Samsung NVMe, and a 5TB USB 3 WD...

    When new paste brands/models come out. When I was using Arctic Silver for example years ago, Thermal Grizzly didn't exist, now my build has Grizzly's Kryonaut paste which is sublime and unless they release something that's even better in years to...
