I haven't noticed any issues yet..
I'm using a Corsair HX620, yeah old school modular. I am using two seprate 8-pin's each going to their own plug on the power supply. HWinfo says the vega is sucking 244 watts max. I set the +50% on the power with the undervolt at 1050mv.
Got the vega 56 friday so had some time over the weekend..
1. Used wattman to undervolt and set the fan to run higher. I left the clocks the same for now as the ASUS is already factory OC. (1583 mhz)
2. Fan at 100% is quieter than the twin frozr 7950 at 100%. I play with headphones so that...
Yeah I game at 1080P. It should be a speed improvement over the 7950 at least. Will give me a reason to upgrade everything else later.. lol.
Nice! I had the 7970 PCB on mine also.. ran it on air at ~1.1Ghz.
Be careful in the store. Observe how the sound system is set up. On the systems that they are trying to push, there is probably sound treatment, optimal space/layout of speakers, etc. The other speakers may be too close together, cramped space, hot spots where the sound will reflect. It may...
Preferable if you can use Roland MT-32 for these old sierra games, some great sound! I bought a used one for a bargain. You need a soundcard with a MIDI port (most vintage soundcards have this) OR something like a usb->midi adapter. 25 pin.
General Midi games probably sound better on a sound...
During one of the VMworld 2018 presentations, one of the vmware employee's said using the memory alert is mostly a waste of time. When you do a memory reservation, vcenter will always see all of the memory "in use" because it is "reserved". NO way around that. Free annoying alerts! Yay...
We have a digi 4 port USB in our environment. Use it for USB license dongles and have it passed-through to a VM license server. Used to have a physical license server with the key plugged in the back, not anymore! Works great.
Just for kicks I have also passed-through a usb to serial port...
I bought a used one a few years back, was able to plug it in and get it working pass-through to DOSbox. Great to play all those old sierra games with an MT-32, no way I could have afforded one when they were new!
I have completed Phantasy Star 1 start to end at least 5 times, usually getting all of the laconian items on the way. (Sega Master System and also a couple times on emulator years later)
Phantasy Star 2 for genesis, I played pretty far into the game but did not complete it.
Have not played any...
Fallout 1 & 2
half-life 1 & 2 (I usually play through once on each difficulty)
Pool of Radiance
master of orion
Knights of the old republic 1 & 2
Total WAR series of games.. you have to beat it with every faction right ?
