    I can remember getting upset when some BBS boards make 9.6 the minimum modem speed for getting connected.

    Where to buy Windows 11 RETAIL keys for cheap? Are you using retail or OEM key?

    How do you do that? I have never deleted a device. There was a Windows setting that tied your key to your MS account. I don't know if that's automatic now. I won a copy of Windows Vista, and have not had to purchase a key since. I been through 7,10, and now 11 on probably 5 different...

    4070ti 800$ no thanks nvidia! My 3080 is lookin better and better everyday.

    My 1070Ti gave out on me a couple weeks before Thanksgiving. I was fortunate to find a 3070Ti OC model for 599.99 on Black Friday. I am at 1440P and no plans to go 4K. I am super happy for what I paid. If I would have paid the 749 that most 3070Ti models are selling for now, I would be a...

    Windows 2H22 Gaming Performance Regressions

    I tried it all off except for gpu acceleration. It did not make any difference. Windowed mode still had lower fps on 11. I really need to test borderless windowed mode. I am curious if I see a change.

    Windows 2H22 Gaming Performance Regressions

    I may have found a something a little interesting. I reran Heaven today. In Extreme mode, it was hitting constantly 234fps. I went to custom mode with the exact same settings except I check marked full screen mode. My performance went back to the 245fps I had originally seen. I wonder if...

    AtlasOS, a redesigned Windows 10 version for gamers?

    Windows 2H22 Gaming Performance Regressions

    I did not do a full benchmark suite when I first built and setup this PC. I put on W10 because my 970 Evo 2TB had not come in yet. I had a 5 year old WD m.2 that I put W10 on to install, and do the upgrade to W11 to get the license on my account. I ran Heaven, and 3DMark Firestrike Extreme...

    RyZen Pstate Overclocking, method, calculation and Calculator

    I will give offset a try tomorrow. AMD reported Core Parking was an issue with balanced mode. After testing, I can say it's not the only issue. I get a significant FPS decrease when using balanced over high power mode with the CPU allowed to a 5% minimum state.

    RyZen Pstate Overclocking, method, calculation and Calculator

    Has anyone had a problem with P0 not being recognized? I have changed P0 to 4.0ghz, but the max it will go is 3.2ghz for P1. It will clock down below 3.2 automatically. If I set P1 to match P0, then it locks in at 4ghz and will not drop down to the next P state. Any ideas? I have tried it...

    AMD Polaris .. supply problems abound

    He never said anything about production. You might want to watch the saved stream again. As a mod on that channel, all I can say is you need to listen closer to what he says.

    Yes, it will run as a demo until you buy an unlock code. There is a short demo on my rig on a 7970 that did not support Eyefinity.

    Anyone felt old when around younger gamers?

    Games, no never felt old. When I went out to breakfast and the girl behind the register rang me up and looked at me and said "I rang you up for the senior drink", I felt gutted.

    AMD's Failure Rates, Part Two (2015 Edition)

    Could it be since Nvidia does not have the long term driver support that AMD has, their cards are retired from service at a faster rate and not reported as faulty? Not trying to start a flame war, just posting a legitimate possibility.

    Wait a sec. Intel just said "Screw it, we're out"?

    Maybe they are preparing for the switch to quantum computing. I could totally see the government restricting ownership of quantum devices. This would really affect the shift of most things to the cloud under corporate or government control.

    Having more than 1 Xbox One in the house?

    That speed is fine. You are still looking at 15 minutes the first time you put a disk in versus well over an hour if you down load. MS servers will only download so fast, and unless everything in your house is streaming and downloading at the same time, I think you will have diminishing...
