Hi vulcan78! Welcome to these forums!
People might be more receptive to you if you don't insult and then continuously point out perceived failures of the OP in their personal test.
The OP is not, after all, a professional reviewer.
A simple request if he could rerun the test with a SATA...
I think you are probably correct in terms of performance. However, I also feel a lot of people don't care, because a lot of people don't care about the RTX 2080 TI price range. If they can get a competitive product below $1000 that would be something I might consider.
Agreed, but foveated rendering is more a GPU technology than a display technology. The display still needs to be 4k, 8k, 16k, whatever. The pixels don't just get up and move to where you're looking :p .
Although bandwidth could potentially be reduced.
Hmmm.. I think anandtech says its 15 percent faster OR 30 percent more efficient.
Well, the argument being made was that average die size has not gone down that much, and power consumption stills hovers under 100 watts. So the thermal watts/surface area has not increased. Why should core counts affect the cooling solution?
what do you mean? What added distance are you...
Just googled some numbers, let me know if I missed anything.
P4 williamette 146 mm^2
Q6600 286 mm^2 (2 dies i think?)
i7 920 263 mm^2
i7 4770k 177 mm^2
i7 7700k 122 mm^2
i7 8700k 151 mm^2
i7 9700k ~170mm^2
Seems like die size hovers around...
I would think a stock 4770k should be able to pump out higher than 60-70 fps BF5 1080p low settings. However, this is just a gut feeling, and I dont have experience with BF5, so others will probably know better.
Dark12 is saying that when you read a study that doesn't mention A, you cannot infer that the study means A has no effect. When you read a study titled "bananas make you poop", the researchers are in no way implying that "tomatoes do not make you poop". It just means that is a variable the...
No. If you increase the graphics settings, and then find comparisons online with the same increased settings, and you find that now the performance is matching, then that probably means your GPU is not the bottleneck.
If you increase the resolution /graphics settings and find that the FPS begins matching what you expect then you are probably CPU bottlenecked. If the new motherboard is cheap it might be worth it to try to overclock the 4770k. But if high FPS is absolutely necessary I would probably look at...
I'm glad they're improving the rendering system, but maybe they shouldn't mess with the textures as much. The one the left is not an improvement.
I'm the opposite. All of my CRT memories are terrible, but maybe my CRTs weren't that great? Terrible blacks, Annoying fish bowl shape, flickering refresh rate (although 85hz was nice at the time), enormous and bulky. Resolution was okay i guess, obviously crap compared to resolutions we...
Well I guess I would argue it's about as different of a concept as it gets, both practically in its application, and in the theory of how it works. But I suppose at that point we are just arguing opinions. :P
Now now gentlemen. Lets at least agree that
1) The orientation pictured is not very common
2) Motherboard functionality does not change with respect to orientation (except perhaps if the motherboards has heatpipes on it, then cooling performance might suffer a little)
I was under the assumption that most of the RTX games are path traced and thats why they need the denoiser? Quake2 RTX seems to be path traced. Minecraft seems to be path traced. Am i wrong?
Multiple rays per pixel+multiple bounces... didn't you just describe path tracing? I thought plain...
I know what you mean! The arctic ocean is ONLY ever the top side of the earth. The country and city labels and text is always written so it's clear which orientation is up.
I guess there is some concern that all of the electrons might pool on the wrong side of the PCB. Usually you want your...
AMD just launched a processor that is a lot cheaper than intel's high end, outperforms intel's high end in multithreaded workloads, and does it with about the same amount of power.
It is surprising that AMD managed to do that. Although I guess we still have to see if they can supply the...
amd rome server CPUs seem to be pretty good.
Never used ADA, and have very little experience with VHDL. I've only been using verilog. Like most other digital designers I usually avoid comparing any HDL to any programming language, because once in a while you see someone trying to create verilog for synthesis as if its a regular...
Yeah, we had to interface an FPGA board to a VGA screen for a college course. I don't remember the details, but the ultimate project was to program a very simplified version of the game "flappy bird" using a digilent basys 2. I don't remember if our board actually gave us color control or if...
Well, to be fair on those two points
1) There was a helicopter crash in real life, but it wasn't the first helicopter, it was weeks later. It clipped its blades on a nearby cable and went down. I dont think it was ever made clear what the condition of the pilot was. And if you watch the HBO...
Well I guess you weren't referring to radio frequencies that cell phones use. The sun comparison in that case is not interesting to me personally. Your radar example is more interesting to me.
I RECOGNIZE that frequencies below visible is NOT ionizing, and SO are probably not going TO cause...
