As someone who still has three 18.4" Alienware laptops there definitely is a difference in screen size.
Personally I ended up throwing RTX 3000 GPUs in my M18xR2 & AW18 to keep them relevant in todays time. Packed with 32GB RAM, MXM NVMe SSD adapter, they aren't too bad.
However, so far there...
I know Onkyo has a option for their own EQ software that might do something similar however, I have not seen any option in the DIRAC live app. i'll have to take a look to see if it was updated. I did all my stuff back in Dec 2021.
Honestly I was surprised they let me RMA it but the process went smoothly. I'm sure the 2nd gen version will be much better, but this one isn't bad as long as you don't need to send it back. The fan on my new one seems to be louder but everything else seems fine. I'm just waiting for Valve to...
Ah I forgot about this thread. I've been using my Onkyo TX-RZ50 since December. I ended up giving my Denon X4700H to my brother. I like my Onkyo much better (my previous receiver was Onkyo TX-NR838).
Running 7.1.4 set-up. One out to my 4K TV and second out to 4K projector.
Haven't had any...
I had to RMA my first 256GB Steam Deck I received 2 weeks ago. had a dead pixel in the middle of the screen.
Valve had me send it back and sent me a new one. No dead pixels. Kinda want to see the 512gb screen in person. My brother has one ordered but won't get it until next month.
OC 3090 Kingpin vs stock 3090Ti FTW: https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/27316113/spy/27316490
I wouldn't upgrade unless you need the VRAM.
Seems like your PSU was fine for 5950x + RTX 3080Ti. Then again I used a 875W PSU from 2014 on my 10980XE + RTX 3090 and it was fine. I upgraded to a EVGA 1200 P+ but the 875W is still used in another build.
Did you end up selling 2080?
I have a similar issue. Only card I was able to buy is a EVGA RTX 3090 Hybrid so the 240mm radiator was stuffed into my 5.25” slot area lol. I’m using an Alienware Aurora R4 case so there’s no room for a radiator like that.
I’ve also always bought the Titan card of each generation (only didn’t own black, Z and RTX). Luckily the 3090 was cheaper than the RTX Titan and little did I know the GPU supply would be bad this long. The 3090 was the easiest to buy so I guess it kinda worked out for my personal build although...
Even if crypto crashed tomorrow I don’t think GPU supply and prices will come back anytime soon.
This has become a cycle really. There’s crypto years where it’s booming and there’s years where it’s down. But the chip shortage has caused lots of delays and production issues.
I can agree on battery life. My iPhones have always gotten worse battery life compared to my android phones. I think iOS just shows up what apps want location whereas Android is starting to do that. There was a change in iOS 12-14 somewhere where the location request was shown for every app that...
I used to switch back and forth every year or two between iOS and Android.
I’m on my second year of iOS right now and am getting a bit of iOS and might switch to Android this year or next year. I bought a cheap Note 9 to play with Android and see if I will switch.
Main issue with iOS:
That’s good to hear the issue was solved.
I’m currently running Intel Core i9 10980XE + RTX 3090 XC3 Hybrid on a 875W PSU (Alienware Aurora R4 dell oem).
I have an EVGA 1000 G5 on order but had no issues with my setup for months (all stock).
Really seems to depend on psus
I can’t remember my CPU progression (had too many) but these are what I have today:
Intel Core i9 10980XE (desktop)
Intel Core i9 9900K (Alienware Area-51m Laptop)
Intel Core i7 3920XM @ 4.2Ghz (Alienware M18xR2 Laptop)
Intel Core i7 2637M (Alienware M11xR3 Laptop)
Intel Core i7 8850H (Dell...
I pre-ordered the Onkyo TX-RZ50. I currently have the Denon X4700H and they finally sent me the converter box to fix xbox series x and rtx 3000 issues.
I can finally use my xbox with VRR but I decided I preferred the options and sound of my previous Onkyo TX-NR838 hence the preorder.
Yeah that's true but I don't think we really had a shortage years ago during 20 series. And if any of rumors are to be believed Ada Lovelace (40 series) should be a decent deal faster than 30 series.
Not to mention right now many people are looking for 30 series and if that's still the case...
Windows 11 doesn't seem to be much of an upgrade from 10. I just feel like they took what was supposed to be 10X and newer builds and renamed it to 11. Perhaps they will move back to the original licensing system to make more $$$. They did give 10 away for free lol
I totally agree with this. I...
I just hope manufacturers don't start using the pricing to increase MSRP of next gen GPUs.
If a 3090 is $1499 and 3080Ti is $1199, who knows if they will increase it to $1999 for a 4090 and $1499 for a 4080Ti since so many people are buying GPUs at those prices like on eBay.
I think AMD drivers have gotten better over the years.
I still prefer nVidia drivers without geforce experience just because its lightweight and simple compared to AMD's AIO package, but the drivers themselves were stable.
I upgraded my desktop with Intel Xeon E5 1660 V3, upped the RAM to 32GB DDR4 3200Mhz, added a Radeon VII from a eGPU I was using, and bought a Noctua NH-D15.
The older parts (i7 5820k, 16GB DDR4 2666Mhz, 120GB SSD, 600w PSU, GTX 980, 120mm AIO) will go into a spare PC case I have laying...
Lots of companies, such as Dell , offer the same support for the lower end models as the high end models too, just gotta pay a bit more to get it.
I do agree though that for many companies this is an issue. For Apple, it doesn't matter which product you have.
I just returned my 16" MBP. I had the $2,799 model.
When compared to my 2013 retina MBP 15" it performed 2x faster at things like rendering, but in everyday tasks and moderate loads, there was almost no difference.
I decided to give my 2013 some fresh thermal paste, new battery, and fresh...
We have a bunch of Dell's at the house (Latitude and Precision series only), lots of Alienware's (Area-51m, M18xR2, M14xR2, 13 R3) and some Mac's (Macbook Pro 15 Retina Late 2013, MBP 13 Late 2011) all have been solid.
I think more importantly is the class of laptop. I don't normally buy...
I was literally in this same situation!
I went with the Epson 3100.
The BenQ was on sale for $599 on Cyber Monday, after tax it was around $653
The Epson was on sale for $699 on Black Friday. I found a site selling it and had a 10% off coupon. Got it for $629.10.
I was thinking of ordering...
