chip shortage is severe, so maybe DIY won't get it in time.
i'm impressed that the Intel Xe 96eu beats vega on the cezanne.
i just wish they could squeeze the same thing into alder lake.
alder lake will only have 1/3 the power
zen3 apu has last year's gpu with a speed bump.
I know it's faster than intel, but lacks the latest hardware decoders.
that's a big issue for me because the last AMD A6 I gave my mom could only decode 1080p60 h264/avc max.
everything above that was choppy and killed the cpu
then youtube came...
i bring up mobile because it should be even less appropriate to hold max turbo, but it does.
I also played with a cheap lenovo ryzen 4300G desktop, and it holds max turbo indefinitely too.
I'm just trying to figure out how likely it is for me to get max power on an intel system, as I haven't...
well, if i'm gonna get a mobo, it better support all-day turbo.
The lenovo ryzen 4500U I played with could also do all-day max turbo at 4ghz, despite being a 15w chip.
11400 benches leaked, and...
$149 isn't an unreasonably low price for a 6 core.
considering a core i3 4/8 is only $99.
4 core $99 should always be the standard, and everything should be proportional to that.
if stupid intel didn't gimp the 11th gen core i3 with a refresh, I'd buy that 4/8.
But I need native hdmi 2.0 and...
sucking china's tiddies doesn't hurt. We've been doing it unharmed for decades.
shit's not gonna get better, according to nvidia and amd.
stock nonexistent until the summer, at least.
The alternative is to get a 3060 laptop for $999, remove the bottom panel, and OC that bitch.
I have my...
in default Windows install, you make a good size partition for system and apps and documents.
I dunno how ssds technically work. But if this partition gets heavily used, is the nand gonna get worn out faster in just this partition?
I thought ssds spread out all the data writing over all the...
for me, it's a choice between the cheapest rocket lake and the cheapest 4-6core ryzen APU.
i5 11400 vs r5 5000g
I don't really care about a little IPC advantage.
only price and availability and features matter to me.
rocket lake Xe has current video acceleration support, ryzen is behind, with...
