    TP Link Gigabit Powerline- 800Mbs down to 15Mbs

    I temporarily caves due to work being busy and so I've been using a wifi adapter. When I get some more time this week I'll try some more things. Would be nice if the powerline adapters started to behave again.

    TP Link Gigabit Powerline- 800Mbs down to 15Mbs

    Unfortunately while there is coax drops in each room, there are two coax runs into our unit with one drop feed rooms on one half of our unit, and the 2nd drop feeding the other half. These two seperate runs don't cross over, so I wouldn't be able to utilize that tech. My condo was built in...

    TP Link Gigabit Powerline- 800Mbs down to 15Mbs

    Model is - TP-LinkTL-PA7017P AV1000 I should have been more specific yesterday as I couldn't use a power bar last night (although now I can) So what I did was take the recieving adapter and I moved it to the same room and wall that the other powerline adapter (one connecting to the router) was...

    TP Link Gigabit Powerline- 800Mbs down to 15Mbs

    Thanks for the detailed reply, appreciate it. So I did what you suggested and plugged both the adapters so that they would be on the same circuit. Speeds increased to 160-180Mbs, so a heck of a lot better. Not 800, but at least I can assume that the adapters are "ok", and the culprit is most...

    TP Link Gigabit Powerline- 800Mbs down to 15Mbs

    I picked up a pair of TP Link power line adapters to solve the wifi issue my condo has with 8" thick concrete support walls. I have a mesh network as well which works great, but for main PC I wanted hardwire, so I gave the powerline a try. It's been flawless with me getting between 800Mbs-600Mbs...

    Lian li GPU Riser issue & RMA

    I picked up a Lian Li X1 GPU Riser for my card, however I could not get the card seated. The GPU and riser are about 1-2mm off and I really tried to get the GPU seated without using G forces that would break the GPU. After I surrendered, I looked at the GPU riser closely and noticed that I had...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Exactly this. Nvidia probably wants to announce first so that they set the price tone --before AMD has a chance to. I don't see Nvidia wanting to lower prices, if anything I think they got a taste over the last 2 years of what people are willing to pay. They'll want to be their own middleman...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    I'll have to plug the 6700 card back in my system later today and go over all the settings again. Appreciate the suggestions.

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    Yeah, I never downscale, always record full screen and full resolution.

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    From what I understand their encoder isn't as good as Nvenc but so far I've found the quality pretty decent. Playing horror games with a lot of dark scenes and fast moving action, the quality has been on-par with recordings made in the same game with an RTX card using Nvenc. I'd probably have to...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    Not sure what you mean by that... In AMD Relive, my recording settings at AVC and 30Mbs but I've also tested HVEC with same results. If I could just get this text issue resolve I'd be golden with this AMD card, it's doing everything amazing so far. Text issue aside, the recording feature works...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    Monitor is Viewsonic Elite XG270QG 27" 165Hz nanoIPS. I don't know what adjusting cleartext would do since this ONLY shows up in recordings with Relive. Again, everyday games, desktop text is clear. It's only in the recordings made by AMD Relive. Also I've tested a RTX card in the same system...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    It's not just the overlay as in the picture posted it also affects all the text in the record, not just in game or overlay eg; desktop icons, folder and file text, and in game text.

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    Looks like I already have that set. It's only the recordings made with AMD Relive that turn out like this. When not recording, and even during recording, the FPS counter, and Desktop text looks normal. It's only when viewing the made recordings from AMD Relive that the video has this distorted...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    I just took these snaps from recordings I made with AMD Relive. Top part is from a recording in Metro although any game produces the same effect. You can see the Afterburner FPS counter has distorted text colors. Bottom part is taken from my desktop, also recorded with AMD Relive. You can see on...

    Did.... did AMD just extend the life of my 1080ti by enabling FSR?

    No, you miss what I'm saying. FSR looks good, very good, and I do personally hope it catches and more game devs implement it. Also I am fully aware that it will be very easy to implement. But... that said, you underestimate or don't at all, the far reach Nvidia has into both large and small game...

    Did.... did AMD just extend the life of my 1080ti by enabling FSR?

    lol, as much as I love AMD, my thoughts exactly. The reason I don't think FSR will become too mainstream comes down to one thing. Nvidia's ability to work with *cough* bribe game developers both large and small.

    Is 2077 finally worth playing?

    Thanks. Maybe I'll give it a go then. From everything I've heard about it, I was weary to pay full price, but seems you can get cheap GOG keys now so I'll give it a shot. I can understand how for some people it didn't meet their expectations, or they expected a certain game, and so that crowd...

    Is 2077 finally worth playing?

    Before 2077 launched I was pretty excited for it, but I didn't buy it immediately and the more it was reported to be a hot mess I stayed away. Fast forward to now, I'm tempted to pick up a cheap GOG key and play it, but are most of the kinks ironed out? Is the game still a buggy mess, or can...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    Just to add a few more points about the AMD driver debacle over the years... Personally, as mentioned I've never had an issue and find the AMD drivers rock solid for a drop in gaming experiencing, but that said most friends and family prefer Geforce and with good reason. For example; I gave my...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    I just record never stream and usually at 1080p/1440p. With Nvenc I was using CQP 14-15, and while the files sizes are large I don't mind because the recordings were pretty awesome. With AMD Relive, I am using AVC with 30Mbs and overall, it looks okaaay... As for AMD and OBS, I'm pretty sure I...

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    From a strictly gaming perspective, AMD drivers are pretty solid and performance is right there with the nvidia counterpart. That all said... the only grip(s) I have with AMD is their encoding crap, and recording with Relive. I guess I was spoiled with Nvidia's Nvenc, because I've had nothing...

    PC Locking up

    I bought a RM750X but haven't installed it yet. I always use DDU when uninstalling, especially when swapping from Nvidia to AMD. I don't have the 1660 anymore so I wouldn't be able to test it unfortunately as that would have been a good idea. thx

    Are AMD drivers really still terrible?

    lol, yep. https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/question-how-did-ati-get-this-rap-for-bad-drivers.437090/ But in all seriousness AMD drivers are very good. You could go back and forth all day with issues Nvidia has had with their drivers (Stopped responding :D)... and issues AMD has had. Pointless.

    PC Locking up

    I have a computer that was running ok - or seemed ok - until I installed a 6700 XT reference, and since then for the last week it's been constantly locking up. Before you say wrong thread, I think the memory is the culprit due to testing but I'm wondering what could be the issue. So to explain...

    Upgrading laptops with LPDDR4X

    Anyone know if LPDDR4X is available anywhere to purchase, or if most laptops using it will just have it soldered? I've tried Newegg and a few other sights but can't find it, at least not 3733/4266 speeds. Was looking at getting one of the newer LG Grams, and in all the 2020 Grams there was 1...

    Cyberpunk is Available - Lets share how your GPU/CPU is performing

    Still mulling over buying the game, but I think I'll grab a copy from GOG. With my current setup I was hoping for Ultra settings at 1440p (I'd be happy with 30-40fps), but obviously with my 6800 there is no RT support yet in 2077. I bought a Trio X 3060ti on release but haven't opened it yet...

    Simple question for anyone who has upgraded from Zen 2 to Zen 3...

    I don't think an OS re-install is necessary just for a CPU swap, unless you're moving over from AMD to Intel or vice-versa, then maybe... But even swapping from an older AMD x370 chipset to x570 I still wouldn't consider the OS re-installed necessary, nor should it cause any issues.
