    Just bought a Mobo with 2 ethernet Lan ports, have a server/plex streaming question)

    Unless whatever youre streaming from is teamed up or connected at more than 1Gbps, no. Regardless, the ~highest bitrate you'll really ever see with 4K is 100Mbps.

    AMD "Renoir" Die Annotation Raises Hopes of Desktop Chips Featuring x16 PEG

    The point is, assuming you can sustain the clock speed (which alot of laptops can, when the TDP is unlocked) you can get significantly more performance. As for 20 PCIE lanes, its something for people who are interested in it, more is always better I guess. There really isn't a reason to dunk on...

    It's a issue with the cooler likely, these cards are known to throttle and even shut down due to not cooling the GDDR6

    Help me build my father a computer

    Ok, but my point was you're overspending where you don't need to, if you're going to spend $4K it better come with a 2080 Ti, if not just chop off the unnecessary stuff. You don't need to waste a quarter of the mans budget on useless audio gear, you didn't even address my other points

    Advice for a entry level gaming laptop

    GF65 with a 2060 for $900 is a steal, don't let anyone tell your otherwise, I'd look at notebookcheck reviews to see how bad the throttling is and if you can stomach thats one of your best options atm

    NVMe question

    If it's M.2 SATA, you can just grab a M.2 SATA to 2.5 caddy. If it's M.2 PCIE, you can get a riser card but whether it will be bootable or not will depends on your board. Regardless, it still show up as a storage drive in your OS

    What is the oldest piece of continually running hardware you currently use with your rig?

    Was a OCZ Vertex 4 (MLC 512GB SATA SSD), just sold it to a friend for a good price, so after that, probably my HDD's? If not my GPU, but they're all fairly recent. If we're including monitors and the like, definitely my HP ZR30W, got it for a steal a couple years back and it looks amazing still.

    Potential Laptop feed back

    Assuming you can configure it, buy it in the lowest end config possible (aside from GPU) and then upgrade it yourself, it'll likely be cheaper

    AMD Ryzen 7 4700G is "Renoir" Desktop AM4 Processor: 8-core/16-thread with "Vega" iGPU

    In high end gaming and consumer laptops? Joking aside, these look like promising chips or HTPC's doing CPU encoding, which I could see MASSIVELY benefitting from this.

    AMD Ryzen 7 4700G is "Renoir" Desktop AM4 Processor: 8-core/16-thread with "Vega" iGPU

    So far from what we've seen in laptops, its faster than the previous gen by a fair bit.
