    Graphic problem with Windows 1903

    I cannot recommend any cable. They should (SHOULD) all be the same made to a HDMI standard. Cheaper ones Are however worse. but any Mid range HDMI cable is as good as a high end cable. I would just buy Any new HDMI cable from a Computer STORE (not ebay)

    Graphic problem with Windows 1903

    Graphic problem with Windows 1903

    looks like refresh rate or pixel clock issue. (gpu or connection, possibly monitor) did you have a overclock enabled on the monitor which needed a pixel clock patch before the update? if you did re apply the pixel; clock patch.

    Bulldozer Core-Count Debate Comes Back to Haunt AMD

    never did i nor will i see these chips as 8 cores. But given AMD went back to using real cores now have decent cpu's again and this law suit is now settled.. Maybe we can get back to having AMD vs Intel And both being Really viable choices. If nothing else comes of this we can see that even...

    270x Downgrade bios to 7870 for M91p motherboard.

    I dont know if that system has the same white list (but probably does due to it being from the same basic line) i did have a quick look and all i can see is they came with Intel integrated gpu (igpu on the cpu) or a radeon discreet gpu. Unfortunately it does not say Which radeon gpu. on a side...

    i7-3930K overclock from stock speed to 4.4 ghz caused Cinebench R15 score to drop?

    Microsoft Brings DirectX 12 to Windows 7

    i remember when ms that it was impossible to get dx 12 on 7. that annoyed me immensely at the time. It seems i got over it though because hearing that you can have dx 12 after all really should aggravate me more than it does. ( i think its because i never believed them to start it)

    Microsoft Brings DirectX 12 to Windows 7

    that entirely not true. if i provide you with a blank text document, which you then populate with data and private information, It is not your fault if software decided to read that text file and send it back to a server without permission. the API is there so Users CAN if they want to allow a...
