Being from Australia, it probably could kill you 3 ways...

Is there a way to resize inline photos on mobile? Every time I post from my phone, the pics come out HUGE. And without a mouse, there is no way to drag the edge to shrink.

Does pinch to zoom work?

the TPU app is discontinued, so this would be a feature of whatever browser you use - you'd need to investigate the options

You're joking! ;)
I was being a bit of a smart-alec, but no I wasn't joking. Use a PC(Windows, Mac, Linux). Cellphones are cellphones. They are not meant or designed for use as a primary computing device. While there are a growing number of people who use cellphones as their only computing device, such does not change the fact that it is not their purpose. They are meant to be a mobile supplement to a main computing system.

Yes - I was being a major smart-ass. Sorry about that.

@W1zzard the “recent discussions” box does not appear to show topics originating from the intel arc sub forum of graphics cards. I can see other topics shown in the recents from nvidia and AMD but not the Intel one even if a thread is dated newer than what is displayed.

IE: 7730m not working

Is showing which originated from the AMD/ATI sub forum.

The Intel GPU drivers that are pulled also seem to just go by version number instead of architecture. The links for the stable and beta are here until they unify them.

Stable:

ARC:

iGPU:

BETA:

ARC:

iGPU:


The "Latest" 31.0.101.3413 that were posted this AM on the site, are the unified drivers for the iGPU only. These dont include ARC.

This illustrates why I keep a browser bookmark for the Intel iGPU driver hosted on the Intel site. I can't be sure that a third-party site (TPU, Guru3D, et al.) gets this right.

Same with Nvidia, AMD video card drivers, AMD chipset software, etc.

In my opinion, there should ALWAYS be a link to the original source, even if it's hosted locally. The nomenclature should be cut and pasted from the source.

At least one site refers to Adrenalin Optional installs as Beta (or worse doesn't mention that they are Optionals); just call it Optional if AMD calls it that. And sites everywhere need to be crystal clear if something is beta.

TPU does a nice job at packaging up Visual C++ packages and offering DLSS dlls though.

"optional" means "beta", amd is just afraid of using the word "beta" and hides it behind something else, which misrepresents it imo

It's your site, you're going to do what you want.

For what it's worth, I completely agree that in this case, AMD's "Optional" = "Beta". However it should be up to the individual reader to do that interpretation themselves. Not have to read someone else's assessment and then decide whether or not it's the correct conclusion or not.

Facts should clearly be facts. Opinions should clearly be opinions. In this case, it's opinion not fact.

There are other well known tech sites that make no obvious distinction about AMD's Recommended and Optional software which is even worse. If everyone just used what the manufacturer writes, it wouldn't be an issue but this is the Internet in 2022 and I'm powerless to do anything about it other than use browser bookmarks rather than click through hyperlinks on third-party articles. That's twice the work since I read one posting on a third-party site, then have to go to the AMD site to read their post. Clearly I am making some poor decisions on the sites I frequent.

Nvidia doesn't get into this conundrum since they don't post GeForce hotfixes on their main driver page.

I just thought this thread would be a place to air such feedback regardless of whether or not you agree.

I apologize for taking up your time, I won't do it again. It's a waste of everyone's time: yours, mine, and everyone who read this conversation.

I feel like AMD is betting on people to be uneducated, the files used to be stored in a folder ".../beta/.."

Also their own datasource for the driver updater uses "beta": https://download.amd.com/drivers/xml/gz/driver_09_us.xml.gz

Facts should clearly be facts. Opinions should clearly be opinions. In this case, it's opinion not fact.
The fact is that the files are marked with WHQL test signing, not actual WHQL, which means they do not go through WHQL tests, which makes them "beta"

I apologize for taking up your time, I won't do it again. It's a waste of everyone's time: yours, mine, and everyone who read this conversation.
Not a waste of my time, I very much appreciate feedback from my readers, especially if they disagree with me, and always happy to explain why I'm doing something a certain way

Intel GPU drivers
This should be fixed now? I create a 2nd download for Arc specifically and moved the Arc drivers
