    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Yeah, I did this on my last rebuild. It was basically a new computer, new mobo + cpu + gpu. Just kept the case and power supply. Wanted to see if it would even work, so I put in the same M.2 SSD and Windows 10 booted up fine. It took a little longer than normal, but everything was working.

    Yeah, people are running it on a Pentium 4. https://www.pcmag.com/news/no-new-pc-needed-windows-11-runs-on-a-15-year-old-intel-pentium-4-chip

    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    Check these shots I made. You can add FSR to almost any Windows game on Linux. And the results are decent. https://twitter.com/cybereality/status/1450561479816753157 Cyberpunk 2077 loses a little picture quality, but 30% performance boost, and still looks good in motion. Doom Eternal has...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Windows 11 is running great on the mini PC. Got it setup last night, everything seems to work. And the install was not that hard, I used the Media Creation Tool to make a USB stick, and then just needed to add a few registry keys during the install. I prefer this way (as it's Microsoft...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    Agreed. I had a 280X, which was a rebrand of the 7970 GHz, and that was an amazing value card for the time.

    Right. Casual users don't buy OSes. I doubt the retail sales are that significant for Microsoft.

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Okay, so I'm installing Windows 11 on this new low-end mini PC I got. Obviously it doesn't have TPM or Secure Boot or anything like that. I'm using a USB stick. After entering my key, it says this PC is not supported. I found you can open a command prompt, then open regedit, and create these...

    Yeah, I don't like messing with beta either. For something this important, they will probably push right away. There are always smaller updates that come outside of Patch Tuesday.

    I though the Ryzen L3 cache issue was fixed yesterday (not sure, I have Intel on my Win 11 box).

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    I've bought probably like 10 or 15 keys for Windows 10 for my various computers. Granted, I don't buy full retail price, but I'm sure MS gets some money from that. Plus whatever money they make selling private info they gather, or pushing ads in Bing in the Start Menu, or whatever. They have to...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Yes, they did say that in writing. However, they have been pushing for security, and it makes no sense as a business to withhold security updates from customers (even if they are "unsupported" they are still paying customers).

    You won't get the auto-update, and the upgrade tool won't work, but you can do it manually (and still keep your files without a full reinstall). See the instructions I posted here: https://hardforum.com/threads/windows-11-available-on-october-5.2013419/page-13#post-1045166571

    Virtual Super Resolution?

    It depends what your native res is. On 1080p you can go up to 4K, but I think on higher resolutions they cap it.
  18. cybereality

    More DLSS...

    Looks great. Can't wait to try this at 4K once the patch is fixed.

    AMD FSR even in unsupported games

    VSR and FSR are completely different things. VSR has been around for many years. And it works in the opposite direction. VSR allows you to render a game at 4K and play on a 1080p monitor (for higher quality but lower performance). FSR allows you to play at 1080p and upscale to a 4K monitor...

    AMD FSR even in unsupported games

    So I tried DOOM with FSR. It is *really* close to native. Unless looking at the screenshots, it's hard to tell 1080p from 1440p. There are some small issues, noticeably on very thin lines (like the grating on the left) and also the glow on the blue sign is muted. But overall it looks almost...

    AMD FSR even in unsupported games

    Here, I turned the sharpening up to full, definitely looks better. I mean, there is some quality loss (especially on text) but we are talking 30% performance improvement and it still looks pretty nice.

    That's great. Do you have more information about this feature? Link a blog post or something.

    AMD FSR even in unsupported games

    You can adjust it, that was on the AMD recommended setting (there are 5 options) but I didn't mess with it.

    AMD FSR even in unsupported games

    So I did some tests with FSR and Cyberpunk on Proton. With Linux you can add FSR to any game and it seems to work alright. I was able to boost performance from 72 fps to 95 fps, and it still looks pretty good. Text is a bit softer, but not unacceptable. The last image is with the older CAS...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    Yeah, I had triple mon with GTX 980 Tri-SLI and it was crazy. Still probably beats everything even today, 7680 x 1440 res, 144Hz and 3D. It was sick.

    More DLSS...

    Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it. Not like Intel has a great track record for high-end graphics, but you never know.

    Well the spyware was already at 100%, they couldn't add more... But, there are actually many new privacy controls in Windows 11. So if you want to spend 45 minutes unchecking boxes, you can get it a lot more private than Windows 10.
  31. cybereality

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Right. As far as I can tell, everything still works, so it's not like there is a huge danger to upgrading. And the small issues that are there (like with AMD CPUs) will be fixed soon.

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    Yeah, you can stay on 10 if you like. You are not missing much. I think about the only reason that would be worthwhile is the Auto-HDR for games, but I haven't tried it yet. And the WSL2 for running Linux is improved, you can run full Linux GUI apps (but I don't know why you'd want to since...

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    There's not any big new amazing features, but the interface does look nicer and generally it feels more modern. So far everything seems to work, it's basically Windows 10 with a coat of paint. I don't see any reason not to at least try it.

    Windows 11 available on October 5

    There are only a select few 7th gen CPUs supported. You can check this list: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors I'm guessing your PC isn't on the list, so you can do this registry tweak to get past the check...

    High End Graphics Card Stock 6900 XT vs 3090

    Right, the investor calls are good because they legally can't lie as a public company. So it's not marketing BS, you could pretty much trust that they are telling the truth.

    I'm pretty sure Windows 11 is Frankenstein code that is really running on DOS.

    High End Graphics Card Stock 6900 XT vs 3090

    Yeah, I stopped bothering to read those sites and videos. Most of it is probably just made up by themselves, or a regurgitated rumor some rando on Reddit made up. I'll believe it when it is an actual quote from Nvidia or AMD on a reputable website. There is just no point in wasting your energy...
