    Hi guys. This isn't really a hardware post...just want to pick your brains. I want to create a similar video to these guys on YouTube. Does anybody know what software they are using to create and record the quiz presentation? Thanks in advance and

    AMD Briefly Shows Off Zen “Summit Ridge” Silicon

    Budget AMD Sempron 1.8GHz outperforming the "high end" Northwood 3.2C and Prescott P4 3.0E Hmm so a expensive high end CPU cant outperform a low end CPU with 50% the clock :) It takes a 3.2Ghz Prescott (P4E) to match a budget AMD Sempron 1.8Ghz by a 0.2 frames per second. hmm. You mean the...

    AMD Briefly Shows Off Zen “Summit Ridge” Silicon

    Malarkey? It's truth. Durons and Semprons outperformed P4 Northwood at lower cost. P4 Northwood were popular because Intel was more mainstream had a stranglehold. They used to force retailers to push their inferior products and punish manufacturers for using AMD parts. Anyways I'm talking raw...

    You mean the P4 Northwood that was getting handily beat by the lower clocked budget AMD Duron and AMD Sempron?

    AMD "Summit Ridge" Die Pictured?

    I agree. But you are talking about a specific P4 now, before you was clustering all the P4s together. The Willamette were criticised for showing little gain over the P3s By the time Northwoods and Prescotts and started breaking the 3GHz barrier and started pushing 3.8GHz the P3 wouldn't be...

    AMD "Summit Ridge" Die Pictured?

    Blanket statement which gets recycled. It depends on which version of the P4 we are talking about. There was many iterations.

    Sound blaster zxr or?

    You have misunderstood what I meant. The Auzen X-Fi card's (Prelude, Forte, Home Theater HD) have always had their drivers built and maintained by Creative. The fact Auzentech has gone bust doesn't effect those products. I had the Auzentech Forte too and downloaded directly from...

    Sound blaster zxr or?

    I wouldnt' let drivers deter you. The X-Fi Auzen driver's are built and maintained by Creative not Auzentech. The other Auzentech cards should have compatible c-media drivers. Saying that I agree the OP should stay with his Sound Blaster Z.

    Sound blaster zxr or?

    Analogue better on 5.1 is subjective..Everyone has their own opinion on what's better. Generally speaking digital would be better under DTS or DD encoding whilst gaming or watching movies which already have 5 audio channels.. Analogue would be better for listen to music in 2 channels. The...

    How to get DTS sound over HDMI

    Not enough information. What realtek board do you have? What speaker system do you have? AV receiver? Home theatre in a box (brand / model) If DTS works over optical cable just leave it. The quality wont improve over HDMI.

    lag in new tomb raider

    Try the new AMD 16.2 beta driver http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2630/amd-crimson-16-2-beta-win-7-8-10-64-bit/ Lots of people are complaining about Rise of the Tomb Raider. I think its just one of those badly optimised games. You might have to turn the resolution and/or detail settings...

    lag in new tomb raider

    Need to be more detailed than that. What resolution are you playing at? What detail level are you playing at? What is the minimum, average, and max frame rate? Are the specifications in your system spec the rig you are playing on? Have you got the latest AMD drivers? Are you having this problem...

    Need help to set up 5.1 on my PC - i know nothing about PC

    Not true. This is why Dolby Digital Live and DTS Connect was invented. Had many soundcards with both technologies and never had an issue. DTS Connect is not Creative software. The DTS Connect technology is licenced by DTS, Inc. DTS, Inc has licenced-out their technology a bunch of soundcard...

    Need help to set up 5.1 on my PC - i know nothing about PC

    What brand and model is your AV receiver? Make sure you're using a digital cable. It won't work if you use analogue connection. I've used DTS Connect feature on a few different soundcards in the past and in conjunction with a couple models of receivers. DTS Connect always worked and the DTS...

    New speakers comparison

    This is a fantastic forum for general audio advice, but most users are focused more on computer hardware. For in-depth home theatre advice I would try AVS Forum.

    Need help to set up 5.1 on my PC - i know nothing about PC

    Asus Maximus Ranger VII supports DTS connect. So you can get DTS 5.1 to your receiver using that feature. Chapter 4, page 27 of the manual.

    Need help to set up 5.1 on my PC - i know nothing about PC

    It looks different because the software theme has changed over the years. The screenshot I gave is old. Do as Aquinus said and uninstall your audio drivers and then download the latest from ASUS website. The feature is definitely supported as its listed on your motherboard specification.

    Need help to set up 5.1 on my PC - i know nothing about PC

    Download Realtek's latest audio drivers from ASUS website. Once installed you will be able to select DTS Connect from Realtek's audio menu. DTS 5.1 will work as Mussels described in everyday audio. Then you can select Dolby Digital for actual DVDs and Blu Ray discs using digital out or SPDIF...

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7, 8,10 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    No. Dolby Digital can only pass-through a digital connection. You can use your receivers and MBs analogue connections. Buy a RCA to 3.5mm connector. You will get PCM Stereo as default. But you can apply the "Dolby Prologic" feature on your receiver to up mix it to gimmick Dolby Digital.

    Building a Quality Gaming PC for around 400$

    Tiny budget. Focus on the CPU, GPU and RAM first. CPU fan isn't important as it comes supplied, case isn't important as it doesn't add performance, a decent sized SSD would be difficult to squeeze in that budget.

    How to copy files from a dvd which doesnot copies?

    Most commercial CDs and DVD will have copyright protection. You can use software like Alcohol 120% or Deamon Tools to bypass the protection. You can try using a ISO creation software like Magic ISO to covert the DVD into an image file. Then upload the image to a virtual drive. Then use the...

    Looks like SteamOS could be dead in the water already - up to 58% less performance than Windows

    I have been running my Athlon X4 620 Propus since 2009 and it runs all my games fine, still looking for an excuse to upgrade because the performance is still there. Good thing I didn't listen to the Intel fan boys telling me to get dual core E5xxx. But they were FORCED to upgrade when their...
