    GPU sag temperature increase is insane on Sapphire RDNA2 Cards...

    Sapphire is (for me) THE AMD AIB. high quality, decent prices. just great products. but not just the fact that the 6900XT Nitro+ has aggressive and very low power limits (maxed out slider = 303W.. that's 30W less than a Merc 319) and even with 30W less power consumption these cards run very...

    Dirty or broken Pixel? VA Panel

    what do you think is this? just something trapped under the display or a semi dead pixel?

    EDIT: it is only happening in Version 30.6 Build 3 (the newest one currently on the landing page of TPU) every older version runs fine. Prime errors at stock settings. instead of writing a long text: 10900K (sealed CPU delivered today) Z590 Strix F (newest bios, everything at Auto settings, NO...

    Intel KF CPUs have bad cache?

    i recieved my fifth KF CPU today. (another 10900KF) and all of these five KF Processors have the same problem. Cache overclocking is absolutely impossible. i have tested the following CPUs on a Z490 Unify / Z390 Aorus Pro: 10900KF (two) 10600KF (two) 9900KF 10850K 10700K (two) 9600KF (borrowed...

    1440p 27" vs 1080p 24" looks basically the same.

    my current Monitor since around 10 months is the LG GL850B.. basically "THE" 27" 1440p 144Hz Monitor. my friend recently bought an Acer XF3 (or as it's sold with the name: "xf243y pbmiipx") it's a 1080p 24" 165Hz IPS Monitor for around 60% less money than my GL850. side by side (except of the...

    today i thought.. what game should i play through? why not minecraft... i never did more than running around in the creative mode. i went into the graphics settings and turned the render distance to the absolute maximum. my CPU OC: (10700K 4.9 Ghz 1.32V LLC4 which results in around 1.26V at...

    6900xt faster than stock at 235W with some tweaks.

    since i found out how the "Voltage" Slider on RNDA2 works (it's basically a Curve Optimizer from Zen 3 for the GPU V/F Curve) i played a bit with my 6900XT. Stock at 268W the Card has exactly 128FPS on a fixed position in RB6 Siege in 4K Ultra. at 235W @ 1125mv and 2600Mhz target the card runs...

    PSU causing crashes under synthetic stress (GPU Only)?

    so i have a Dark Power Pro 11 (750W) the problem is: a 3080 FTW3 Ultra with the 450W Bios and a 10900k @ 5.2 GHz runs just fine. (in games) a 6900XT is barely stable in (for example the first frame in Timespy GPU 2) where it loves to just freeze and reset the driver. might that be the PSU...

    weird single pixel thick colored lines on screen with a 3070.

    i have a rtx 3070 TUF OC from a friend in my house. he said when he plays R6 Siege he sometimes gets a single line with weird colors on the screen. (it can appear on three exact rows on the screen and nowhere else) it never appears when the PC was NOT under load since boot. but AFTER any kind...

    awful memory OC experience with a 3060?

    my friend bought a 3060 XC (one of the fastest 3060s on the market with the same boost clock as the strix OC) another +140 on the core runs perfectly fine and the card sits at around 2140Mhz in Games. But the memory... oh my. +300 = black lines on the screen, warped objects (for example a car...

    so i bought another 10400f because it was on a sale on amazon. it is a new and sealed CPU. the problem is the following. i get random 1 pixel "thick" horizontal lines on the screen when i alt tab out of something. i get artifacts in games, weird behaviour like texture warping (when something...

    using NVCleanstall on a 3060 completely messes up everything.

    so i got my hands on a 3060 XC and i installed the latest drivers with the "recommended" preset. DDUd, no Internet Connection, blocked updates and installed. after the installation i get massive artifacts in games, on the desktop and in the browser. i get black screens like with a 5700XT in...

    PCIe Gen 3 Boards can't handle as high GPU clockspeeds compared to Gen 4?

    so my 6900XT runs since 14 days at 2720 Mhz Target Clockspeed. (previously on a 5900X, B550 Strix F) the Card was for around 60 Hours of Gaming in Use without a single crash. now the Card is sitting in a Z490 Strix E and a Z490 Prime A. what i imediately saw is that even 2670 Mhz is barely...
