    Mystery partially solved, According to this AMD article: NOTE! Wait for Vertical Refresh only works OpenGL 3D applications. When using other APIs such as DirectX® or Vulkan®, VSync is controlled via the 3D application graphics settings.

    AMD crowd-sources evidence for the fast-emerging 500-series chipset USB issue

    Everyone reporting no issues: great, but it is already known it affects a small percentage of users. Just because only 1/10 people have an issue doesn't mean there isn't an issue and that it's no big deal just because you don't have the problem others do

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    If you force vsync through Adrenaline, does it clamp your frame rate to your monitors max frame rate for you as the tooltip advertises? I'm not sure what to do or why this isn't working then. I had a 3080 in this PC before, but I used DDU to remove nVidia things, put the 6800XT in, and...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Does forcing vsync and/or using FRTC (frame rate limiting) in Adrenaline work for anything, for anyone? I've tried using it all 15 or so video games installed on my computer, neither feature works on any video game... both of these functions were available in NVCP on my 3080 and worked...

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    Wait really? They sell open box GPUs like that for a discount? I figured they send them back to the manufacturer to be refurbished and resealed to be resold as new, costing both MC and the manufacturer money. I didn't want to open it because of that. I am curious!

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    I actually was thinking of returning the XT truthfully. I haven't opened it, it was more of a grab of opportunity more than a need for it, since I made that trade anyway. I'll pay a lot for the XT upgrade for performance I don't think I need if I keep the XT (going by the performance of the 3080...

    AMD admits there are problems with USB devices on 500-series motherboards

    In my case my wired keyboard disconnects and reconnects in quick succession at random times, a few times an hour. If I was typing, it would disconnect, reconnect, and the last key that was pressed would repeat until I would press another key. If I was playing a video game and moving in a...

    The amount of hate towards a fellow hobbiest in this thread is nasty. He never claimed he was a master AMD-certified professional CPU sander... just a guy trying to get rid of his lapped CPU. You don't think it's a good-enough sand-job to sell on eBay? Just say so nicely and give a pointer...

    Suggestion: local sales/trades subforum in FS/FT

    Didn't realize people do that (don't really frequent FS/FT in general, just have some things all of a sudden I was thinking of selling and this idea came up). Still, I think it'd be more organized into one thread per area instead of a diasparate of threads, would make people more likely to...

    Suggestion: local sales/trades subforum in FS/FT

    Members can make a thread for their metro area for example NYC, and people local to the area can post their stuff there - for those who rather not deal with shipping and being ripped off that way. Yeah there's Craigslist but this would be a good way to get local [H]'s together and do tech deals...

    3dfx Voodoo 5 6000 Comes Back To Life Better Than Ever

    Black PCB looks just right on a 3dfx card and the idea to add a molex connector for power instead of the 6000's power brick? Why didn't 3dfx itself think do that? 🤔 The 5500 ran off of molex

    Maybe we're being used to do menial work, like chaining up a dog next to chickens to guard them. We already do that to other animals - breed them into their own destruction and they don't have the first clue about it, they're just used to it, that's all they've (we've) known

    Best 27-32" Gsync Monitor?

    Zen 3 Owners 5xxx Series Memory Discussion

    Best way to find out (if you already have the RAM and aren't talking about shopping between two different sticks) would be to just benchmark yourself. But 3600@16 would definitely be my bet to being better. I also did some (albeit synthetic - i.e not gaming) benchmarks between CL 14/15/16 at...

    Not a bad deal. Why would the other party agree to a 5700XT though? I'm confused. Like, they clearly wanted a high end and current GPU, so why would they suddenly want such a relatively downgrade?
