    Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2: Benchmark Test & Performance

    The game may be kinda shite in many aspects, but the fact they're using CryEngine, which is dated, get such great performance with graphics better than Battlefield, COD etc. is still amazing. I wonder when them AAA publishers will learn you just can't slap some effects on games and get...

    Radeon RX 6900 XT Overclocked to 3321MHz, Breaks FireStrike World Record

    Well, technology has come a long way. Sometimes David wins versus Goliath. All the technologies AMD has been using are open source. So make your Ngreedia peoople have some leverage *oooooooooops*

    AMD Radeon RX 6700 Series to Launch on March 18

    No. All of the wafers are the same. Then they just have certain parts of it disabled. They don't make wafers for each card man.

    Wafers don't work like that.

    Weird Power Draw data during Gameplay

    The GPU is throttling itself all the time so this shouldn't be a problem. If you're not experiencing any issues like stuttering, you should be fine :)

    Weird Power Draw data during Gameplay

    I mean, are you experiencing any problems or is it just a weird monitoring graph? I think you need to explain your problem further. What do you mean with "the choppy part"?

    (SOLVED) I've locked my Start key (Genius Scorpion K9)

    I've already tried the manual and it says nothing about this function. FN+F12 opens the calculator, FN+F11 which says "key lock", locks the whole keyboard :( FN+Win key is Scroll Lock I believe, an arrow pointing down lights up. And yeah, basically no info on the net :( Fixed, thanks @animal007uk

    (SOLVED) I've locked my Start key (Genius Scorpion K9)

    Guys, I need help! I have a Genius Scorpion K9 keyboard, and it has this function to lock the Start key, so that you don't press it unintentionally while gaming. Well, I accidentally pressed the key combination to do so, and now I can't unlock it back. Does anyone have the same keyboard or...

    Reviving an old HP laptop for my mom!

    When she mentioned she found an old PC and wants to use it, I was actually quite happy to work on one of these, and I already knew what had to be done before I got it. Lovely little machine, let's just hope the capacitors last :D

    Reviving an old HP laptop for my mom!

    I did go with an SSD right away, I was planing it from the get-go anyways. :) And another 2 GB stick of RAM is coming so it will be fine :D

    Reviving an old HP laptop for my mom!

    The platform doesn't support more than 4 :D Ma' is used to Windows, she gets Windows. Also Microsoft Office etc. I think she won't be doing anything more than browse the web or read some PDFs anyway. :)

    If I get a replacement chip, I'm changing it, too! If anyone has a compatible one available let me know!

    Reviving an old HP laptop for my mom!

    I'll just upgrade the RAM to 4 GB and I think the PC is more than enough for light office work I'll be sure to check that! Thanks for pointing it out! :toast: The old HPs were fantastic, especially these bulky models. I hope this one lasts!

    Reviving an old HP laptop for my mom!

    Hey guys! i wanted to tell you about breathing some new life in an old laptop. The story: The company where my mom works was clearing out some stuff and she came across an old, almost unused laptop. An HP 6910P, a gem from the good old days with basically no signs of use. It was sitting in a...

    iiyama Releases the GB3461WQSU Red Eagle Gaming Monitor

    It's kind of HDR, but not the full range. I believe HDR Ready is HDR600 and Full HDR is HDR1000 or HDR10+?

    FX-6300 OCed to 5 GHz

    I was able to push 4.9 GHz from mine back in the day. Actually it was getting better and better each year, because games started supporting more than 2 cores :D

    AREZ STRIX VEGA 64 OC BIOS

    Yes, I used the newest one and it "just worked" with a force flash. The vendor is different, that's why the System ID is different I presume. EDIT: The BIOS file was given in the thread already, go up ;)

    New GPU, should I replace thermal paste immediately?

    Just as @lexluthermiester said. It not something you have to do, it's just peace of mind I guess. And as far as my experience goes, there's always at least a two or three °C difference. If you ever popped a cooler of a GPU you may have seen all the shit that can be found under there :banghead...

    New GPU, should I replace thermal paste immediately?

    I always do that, force of habit I guess. The TIM manufacturers used before was usually crappy and applied horribly.

    Overclocking my memory

    Performance difference is only apparent in heavy all core usage such as rendering, because I got to increase the CCX speed and I'm really happy with it. Single core performance got up a bit by getting CAS to 15 and I think that's all I'm getting here. Stuck on 2933 MHz CL15 and that's more than...

    Overclocking my memory

    But SOC reading with default settings on my BIOS page shows 0,95 V, is this correct? :eek: I don't want to fry anything :D I think I've reached the limits of my CPU/RAM combo and I'm pretty happy with the results. Lowering the timings further yields a black screen and so does trying 3000 MHz...

    Overclocking my memory

    My sticks are Micron B-dies and when I input my frequencies, the latencies I get from the calculator are horribly high so I decided to do stuff on my own. Here's what DRAM Calculator gives me, and as you can see in the right columns, my latencies are way tighter: SOC voltage being VCORE...

    Overclocking my memory

    I've tried to lower the CAS timing to 15 from 16 but that doesn't work too well, haha. My desktop icons dissapear and things stop opening after a few minutes of usage. Well, since the sticks were cheap and are rated 2400 MHz I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I'll try to bump up the...
