    RTX Voice problems

    The DSP chips inside Creative audio cards can do a lot of noise filtering using that DSP, not the system CPU. Also, at some point at the end of 2009, it was a talk at Creative to use CUDA cores for this processing. "Fermi is great for that". That would be cool because you could drop in an...

    How to get best surround sound experience?

    I game now with headphones in simulated surround. I used to game in a real surround setup. The main difference was that in the real setup I can turn my head slightly, to better discern where the noise was coming from, and the sound was changing naturally. With headphones, turning the head does...

    How to get best surround sound experience?

    Gaming and movies are very different things. Gaming produces surround sound in real time (if they are setup so in their audio settings), so it will create 5.1 uncompressed PCM audio streams. To get those mapped correctly to a pair of headphones you need a software that can apply a HRTF function...

    Realtek DCH Modded Audio Driver for Windows 10

    Alan, Is there a similar mod made for the Creative Audio ZxR type of cards? That card has the older type of Creative SBX software (same functionality), had DDL and DTS Connect, but I don't have any of the other goodies that you have unlocked for the Realtek drivers. I am not even sure if it is...

    The Ultimate Realtek HD Audio Driver Mod for Windows 10

    I got that too. The driver doesn't recognize the headphones as headphones, but as a line out (speakers).

    Realtek DCH Modded Audio Driver for Windows 10

    Alan, I have installed your drivers and I am missing the front sockets. When I use my original drivers, the front of the computer socket has sensing for the headphones. The rear has speakers connected to it. So I can switch between the two in the Windows 10 selection (taskbar speaker). With your...

    Realtek DCH Modded Audio Driver for Windows 10

    The Creative Panel says "device is not recognized". This is what Audio Device detects. Any ideas?

    Better monitor vs higher in game settings ? What's more important for prettier and more immersive experience in your opinion ?

    I am using my 4K, 10 bit, monitor at 60Hz and FreeSync (DP cable). There is absolutely a difference in how a game "feels" when that FreeSync is active or inactive. People that claim that you need more Hz just didn't see FreeSync/G-Sync in action. Now that nvidia allowed me to use FreeSync too, I...

    Testing monitors at nvidia

    There are some kids here that balk at every hint that a company needs to sell something for profit. They think that everything they want should be free or at the most, sold at cost. That line was for them.

    ARM Revokes Huawei's Chip IP Licence

    Nobody said they are stupid ;) Probably they didn't plan that US elections to turn this way. After all, they prepared on a different outcome: https://nypost.com/2019/05/11/the-troubling-reason-why-biden-is-so-soft-on-china/

    Testing monitors at nvidia

    Even for one unit per model, can mean a lot of hours. And nvidia doesn't do this just for fun, they are a business, they need to make a profit on this too. Only Venezuela doesn't believe in profit ;)

    [Buying advice]Budget 450-500USD, need waterproofing, wireless charging, rooting (A MUST!), and custom rom support. Been out of the phone loop.

    Then don't get that carrier. Also, they can detect it even if you are rooted most of the time - based on TTL values in the packet. Only "unlimited" plans are stingier with the tethering now days, because... their "no limit". There are people that try to use the cell as whole house Internet and...

    After a Windows 10 Update Today Overclocking is lost. WTF Microsoft and Intel???

    I have Ivy Bridge-EP generation CPUs (two of E5-2630 V2 on one board) and I didn't get the update. Last OS update was yesterday an I am still at version 1809, build 17763.529

    "Need the hotspot for emergency". Huh? Like 911 emergency? Hotspot is used only when you use the phone to give Internet to a laptop or tablet. My experience: I am on TotalWireless, running on Verizon's network. Hotspot works on S7, S9, S10 unlocked or Verizon firmwares. VoLTE is working too...

    Has Radeon VII caught up with RTX 2080?

    I was thinking a little bit more about the FPS issue, I wonder if the fact that my monitor has Freesync active makes a difference. I have used it with a RX580 for a while and now with a GTX1080 (after Nvidia enabled Freesync on their drivers). Maybe it's not a issue of frequency, but beats...

    I am using an S10 right now, unlocked version. Since the S7, I feel that I don't need to fudge anymore with unlocking the bootloader... Did that on Moto and Asus and I was disappointed. Apps that I don't need? Disabled. Ad blocker? For browsers, checked. For apps? In house I use the PiHole as...

    Has Radeon VII caught up with RTX 2080?

    Sure it is... I prefer my games to look good, 60FPS is plenty for any human reaction time (of 0.15 sec). But this "you need 144Hz" is another myth that I don't feel like discussing.

    Has Radeon VII caught up with RTX 2080?

    Only if the software uses OpenGL exclusive. That's the case on Macs, not so much on Windows, where some apps can use either OpenGL or DirectX. Most of the editing apps are CPU bound though, in real life the GPU effects are not that heavy used. Also, a lot of "professional" software doesn't use...
