I improve the airflow in my case, and I add one Peltier (80w) on the backplate of the GPU. The result is more than 10 degrees low that I transfer for better overclock :D not bad for a ~10$ upgrade :)
The Peltier is connected with Molex outside of the case so I can unplug it when I do not need...
The most intriguing here are did they use their new tool for auto memory overclock because they used in the presentation DDR5 6000@CL30 which one is not common RAM (and in specs).
Because this can add performance in this 15% too.
Maybe you are right, but maybe you don't.
If we can make 5800x3D to boost to 5GHz it will be very close to the next-gen in gaming. You can be sure that AMD doesn't like that.
What happens to 5600x ? They lock the boost to up to 200MHz and no more. Why ? Is there an official statement about...
There is a problem with RSR, it does not work well with Wide Screen monitors, because it uses recommended monitor resolution, and to work the height and width must be different to start upscale.
In my situation, my monitor is with 2560x1080 and the upscale do not work because it must upscale...
That's dependable from the played game.
There are games where computation will be half or less, there are games that will hit the watt wall.
As I show in post 119 SotTR can stay at max power limit most of the time, so the heat will spread from the PC most of the time during gameplay.
For Time Spy this are my settings which is far from normal gaming settings:
If I want more I need to set a higher power limit. And if for benchmarks this is fine, for normal gaming is near to pointless, because perf/watt will become really worst.
Especially for Time Spy, I go for lower MHz because I hit 324W and a bit more voltage.
But this thing (TC) is synthetic software and it just uses as many resources as it can get so it is irrelevant.
For example, I hit this result in Shadow of the Tomb Raider Benchmark with these settings which...
OK, I test it for you, and you can see a fast check.
22.1.2 and 21.4.1
Do you see now the "fine wine", 9-10% or... nothing?
There is no "improvement", but they just clock your card via the driver.
In the last several years, AMD never had a driver that is ready to use at the launch of the cards that they announced.
Four to six months after cards' launch they normally released fine working driver. If you count this as "improvement", ok.
After this time, if you overclock your video card to...
That's true (probably) only for the stock cards, if you overclock them you will get improvement from the driver if it fixes a problem with a game, which one is very, very rare and specific for a few games.
For me, this 'fine wine' is a myth. And this is very easy to be tested, I did it with my...
As Gamers Nexus said in a private video (Patreon), 6 to 8 cores are enough for gaming for the next 2-3 years.
So yeah, you can buy more cores but the benefit is too small, better get a 6-8 core CPU and invest in the fastest RAM/Mobo/Video and optimize them.
Here is just an example of what can...
Indeed, they lower settings to get more FPS, and if they turn on FSR/DLSS (upscale) they will get more FPS but do you know why they don't do it?
Because they need to see where is their enemy, and not somewhere there because the crap effects over the whole picture ;)
Screenshot cannot show what...
I use e-sport just to describe it. If you want you can see the noise in every game, if you don't care about it - never mind :)
But I, can't accept buying an expensive video card, which will lower quality on the games that I play just to get a few FPS more - it's pointless for me.
So, it's a...
I replace my Seasonic FX 850W with NZXT C850, 850W 80+ Gold (Seasonic too) because I had problems with overclocking and sometimes restarts on my RX 6700 XT.
The card can't run on PCI-E 4.0 but on 3.0 never mind what I did but after I change the PSU it automatically jumps on 4.0.
Now I can run...
LG 29WK600-W 2560x1080, so it's not full 2k.
And I prefer quality instead of a few FPS more.
If I can get from 30 to 50-60 FPS then it will be not bad, but in this situation, to lose quality for 5 FPS is nothing more but funny :)
Thanks for this info, OK, I tried it and I can said:
It's a bit worse than I expect it, I was supposed that on Ultra Quality the loss will be not so noticeable.... and everything down is... shit.
On Ultra settings from 30-31FPS with UQ, I jump on... 35-36 and I got some things blurry :D
Numbers, people are always excited about them :)
FSR and DLSS are interesting technologies that I explore and for which I read a lot, but I never think to use them.
And yes - AMD did it far smarter this time than Nvidia.
Some people waiting for Linux to become more popular than Windows maybe in the last 15 years.
Each OS has pros and cons... use what you like, it's simple.
If this "leak" is true and the Start Menu is in the center, will be the first time that I will start to use theme manager to change UI ever...
The Cave is the place for hiding :)
I hide what I can, but most of all I use as lees technologies as I can drop. And this helps not only to hide but it helps me purely psychologically and in this way, things clean my mind.
But after all, we are humans and we can't just sit and look in one dot...
