    Radeon RX 6800 XT Hits 2.8GHz Overlock On LN2 To Smash 3D Mark Fire Strike Record

    ^ I'm with Zarathustra. It used to be that we here at the [H] didn't really respect an OC unless there was a screenshot showing 24 hours of Prime95. I'm not sure what the equivalent would be for a GPU - Furmark, maybe? There's a completely different level of insane between "Holy cow I got it to...

    No volume control through HDMI-CEC?

    I just bought a Sony A8H to replace our ancient TV. I can't get the Xbox One to send any volume commands to it via HDMI-CEC or the TV to accept any via IR. (IR out on Xbox connected directly to IR-in on TV.) Power on/off works just fine through the Xbox. It's just volume that's wonky. I'm not a...

    Apple M1 SOC platform discussion

    Laptops nothing. Those scores are damned near on par with my 2019 Mac Pro. That's bloody impressive no matter how you cut it.

    Frustrating Apple calendar issue

    I'm guessing it's sync'd through iCloud. Turn off calendar syncing on iCloud then delete it from every iCloud device you have. Then delete it from . Then wait a few minutes and re-enable syncing.

    macOS Catalina

    For what it's worth, as of last night Apple fixed the issue. Also, getting Windows 10 installed on a PCIe drive was surprisingly difficult. I had to: Boot into MacOS Create a Windows installer USB thumbdrive Format the PCIe drive for GPT/HFS Boot into recovery mode Enable booting from external...

    macOS Catalina

    I finally found an issue with Catalina. It's un-installable. I blew away the onboard SSD on my Mac Pro 7,1 and found out when I went to reinstall the OS that it can't be installed right now. Apple's servers are having issues pushing out one of the files (InstallESDDmg.pkg). You can download the...

    Post Your Mac Setup!

    I bought the CalDigit TS3 so that I could use my single Apple monitor instead of the three 1440p 144Hz "gaming monitors" I was using. I'm probably the only person in existence to go from a triple monitor setup to a single, without any size increase, and to pay extra for the privilege.

    What's next?

    I've not paid attention to GPUs in about 5 years. Looks like nVidia's got the 30x0 series coming out soon. AMD's last card release was the 5700XT a year ago. Is there any news from the red team, or are you pretty much stuck on team green for the high-end market? edit: My Google-Fu was weak...

    [H]ard Forum Storage Showoff Thread

    Damn, electricity where you live is expensive. This pulls about 10-11A (120V) under full load and our electric bill for the whole house is only like $150/month: It idles at around 9A, so your 3A per server estimate is actually pretty much spot on. edit: Ignore me. I see what you were getting...

    ._ files on NFS prevent use of share

    If I recall correctly, MacOS doesn't support NFS v4.1 or higher. I also recall reading that Apple's not putting any further development work into NFS support, and that any support will be deprecated soon. I thought it was going to be in Catalina, but maybe whatever page I was reading was jumping...

    ._ files on NFS prevent use of share

    This is an odd one for me. I'm connecting to a CentOS 8 NFS share from a MacOS Catalina box, and I've noticed that if any ._ files exist on the share, I can't use the NFS share. Even connecting to it times out. If there are no ._ files, I can connect and get a directory listing without any...

    Netflix Test Varying Play Speeds: Makes Filmmakers Mad

    I'm one of those people that watches at 1.5x speed. Specifically, anime. Look, I don't understand the language anyway, and I can read the subtitles in 1/10th the time it takes the character to speak. The rest of the time, I'm watching a still frame with a moving mouth. It's frustrating. Imagine...

    "Always on" tweak for Apple Watch?

    Looking for a way to keep an app running on my Apple Watch series 3 all the time without the screen dimming or turning off. The wrist-flick motion works about one in four times, and it's annoying as hell. Since you can't do custom watch faces, I've been using something that is basically a...
