What were you expecting exactly? You're showing us a chart where $300 CPU's are performing on par with $500-800 chips. Clearly a beefier CPU is going to have minimal effect with a GPU bottleneck, as it does in most modern games in 4k.
As someone that does a lot of encoding, the productivity...
It seems like they're mentioning generations and not the refreshes inside of them - the summary of the 1080 does mention the Ti and the performance increase it had. With that said, I personally believe the 1080ti was one of, if not the best card Nvidia has ever made. The card was a monster.
I’ll mostly stay out of this laptop gaming argument, but a quick anecdote as an avid gamer and road warrior that has a higher-end gaming laptop, I rarely use it and know no-one that games on the road. It seems extremely niche to me – if you game (outside of mobile devices), travel or move around...
A couple of months ago, my brother brought me into the custom keyboard world as a birthday gift. I've switched things around a bit.
Here's my current setup:
Logitech G Pro Wireless
IDOBAO ID80 Crystal (75%)
Akko ASA Clear/White caps
EG Aqua King Linear 62g switches
I shut mine off the other day. After electricity costs, I would have maybe been netting $2-3 a day, and that's before ETH dropped another $500. I think my mining run is over - grossed ~$8k over the past 15 months which isn't too shabby for not spending any extra money on GPU's or mining hardware.
All different models and controllers (see red text in image), so it's not the best anecdote, but the ADATA SSD directly under my GPU is actually the coolest by a good margin. The 970 EVO below the GPU is actually wedged between a Thunderbolt card and a 10GbE card, which is likely why it is much...
I'm getting between 70-80 RTM a day with a 5950x and 3900xt which is probably a little less than $2/day with my electricity rates. I'll probably keep at it until I get to sub 50 a day unless the pricing substantially changes, but I plan to just hold the 6k or so I have long-term.
The SK Hynix is vastly superior for laptops because of it's power usage, and it has very well-rounded performance as well. If I recall correctly with reviews, it was hanging with or trading blows with the Samsung's lineup and most of the other higher end drives with random I/O.
Yesterday was the 1st day I made sub-100 (88), but I was gaming for ~4 hours, and upgraded the Plex server to a 5700G, so it was offline for a while. I also seem to have quite a few random stratum hangs while using the Supernova pool, and I sometimes have to restart the mining clients on...
Glad to hear it's resolved. I know the 660 supports NVENC, but I'd imagine it's pretty limited on capabilities. I recall the 1050ti's were the cheaper GPU's of choice for Plex transcoding in recent years, but I doubt they're that affordable for what they are during these crazy GPU times.
I made one sell on Dex-trade, but I'm not a big fan of the site. The rest have been on Southxchange which I have no complaints. You can sell for BTC or DASH.
Yeah agreed. I was making 500ish/day with my 5950x + 2700k a month ago, and it's about half that now adding a 3900xt into the mix.
Yeah if you weren't on the latest version of PMS, the dash may have looked different, but the actual client won't tell you IIRC ('original quality' means you're direct stream/play though). You'd have to look on the actual Plex Server interface under activity/dashboard to see details or the Plex...
Yeah I only mentioned it because I degraded my SSD so much that it couldn't even do 10MB/s writes, but that's not the case here.
The screenshot shows how hardware transcoding is verified via the dashboard.
The main suggestion I can make is if it is HW transcoding, try disabling it and use a...
You've tried most of the troubleshooting/testing I would have gone through.
Is Plex installed onto an SSD on this machine? Do you have any clients that do pure Direct Play (not Direct Stream)? I ask because if you're doing any transcoding (even direct stream + audio transcode), it will cache...
I'm gonna hold. Put $329 into it over the last month, and it's now worth ~$1363. It's all money from mining so I just see it as play money. If I somehow net a few grand from it, I may consider selling.
Seems to have some mixed reviews showing 40MB/s+ write speeds too. Well at that price for 2 and the capacity, it's hard to go wrong. Still will use my Sandisk Extremes, but these may make good high capacity spares.
Damn, I posted in this thread 12 years ago :eek:
An update to my original (main system only):
Pentium 200mhz (1998)
Pentium II 350mhz (1999)
Duron 800mhz (2000)
AXP 1900 (2002)
About 6 Socket A processors ranging from 1700 JIUHB's to XP-M Bartons
A64 3000 Newcastle (2004)

Last I checked, it was mostly the high end Ryzen 3000/5000 series CPU's netting $1+ a day aside from HEDT or server chips. I don't really see the extra heat in my system worth it for my 5950x. It runs pretty cool with just the 3080 mining.
Yeah, my 3080 does +1525, and will max around 103.2MH/s with monitors turned off. Memory stays around 104C. Enjoying the surge... making about $60/day with the 5 GPU's going (the 3080 is about 40% of that). Pre-tax, this rate could take care of my rent and car payment :D
This was at the peak of my daily rate back ~4/20 (~$33-34/day), but I typically sit somewhere between $20-30/day at 250MH/s average while I'm not gaming. I manually use NBMiner to ethermine pools.
-3080 - Main rig
-1660ti - Plex server
-2080max-q - gaming laptop (does nearly 40MH/s @ 80W lol)...
I think most of the benchmarks I've seen had the 5900x running better on average boosts. My 5950x gets a R20 single score of ~615, and boosts between 4.8 - 4.9 during the benchmark, but regularly sits at 4.9 - 5.05 during gaming/normal usage. I'm also running ambient temps about 10F higher than...
Dallas MC (which is pretty busy) has had 25+ 5600x in stock the past few days (since Tuesday I think) - maybe it is regular as the OP mentioned? We'll see. When I got mine a month ago, they had 50+ late in the day. It seems like they get very large 5600x shipments and they do seem to hold in...
This was the setting I had to toggle when I had high CPU utilization with iCUE last year on my old 9900k build. I remember it being higher than 5% until I turned this off using Vengeance RGB Pro 3200 RAM.
