    Xeon Owners Club

    Oh man... loved my 1650 as well... also did 4.7. Also loved my 1680... not as fast but 8 cores. Still have them sitting in cpu cases on display. If I was a gamer... wouldn't have gone 2697. Oh well, the high speed xeons were fun....

    NVIDIA DLSS Support Added to Valve Proton

    josephhunn please stop. Neither do you. Also TheinsanegemerN, lots of us linux users play online games. Modern games. And full Windows games. Linux has come a long way. So has wine which is what allows us to run modern windows apps and games. Unless you both spend several years learning...

    NVIDIA DLSS Support Added to Valve Proton

    Heh, well for one, these are windows games running under linux... so no cross platform issues. And for 2, you don't need steam to have this. HansKristian makes vkd3d-proton, and you can go to his site and manually install it into your wine prefix after installing dxvk as well of course...

    Easy2Boot. I can,t get it to work

    Innosilicon's Fenghua GPU Based on Imagination Technologies IMG-B Series GPU Cores

    "3d Mark" Is It a Relevant Test?

    Heh, turbo button started with XTs. From 4.77mhz to an astonishing 9.54mhz! From what I remember back then, ocing was done by soldering in a new faster crystal.

    How to get VPN on Linux?

    Make it easy for yourself. Pick one that gives a crap about linux. Airvpn has a single .deb file install, with a full gui interface.

    X79 and/or rampage IV OC'ing thread for those of us still left....

    Just remember, every time you change the bus speed, you have to re-enable Turbo. Or you will be dissapointed! Weird little x79 thing..... Also, enable all c states. C6.. all of it, or turbo won't work.

    The Linux screenshots thread

    Backports give you access to newer kde versions. 21.10 by default comes with plasma 5.22. Adding backports lets you upgrade to 5.23. Backports are coming from 22.04 which will have 5.23 by default.
