    I've been looking around at specifically, trying to compare different versions of the XT 6650. For instance ASrock's OC version of this card recommends only a 550w PSU, it has the same clock speeds as the ASUS version. Which I cannot wrap my head around why they would be different?

  • Why does the exponential growth feel so slow? Is it really doubling every year?
    These are just apples to oranges comparisons. It'd be great if someone tried to write an elaborate methodology to attempt to quantify such a comparison more accurately, but that's definitely not what's being done by Source: over 1 year ago
  • Intel ME failure? Older machine, Dell Precision T7610, will hang indefinitely during the Windows splash screen with the spinning circle freezing. Doesn't seem to matter what version, W10-W11 Legacy/UEFI MBR/GPT.
    I was able to install Windows 11, but my video card seemed to be incompatible with UEFI (Nvidia K420), even after updating the bios firmware on the gpu from a source. The initial Windows install had to be done with mbr/legacy, not gpt/uefi. I have a newer GPU (5700xt) to test UEFI functionality, and with all the UEFI, TPM, and secure boot turned on + newer gpu I can boot into a test install of... Source: over 1 year ago

Also the minimum processor the game suggests is 27% more powerful than yours. Save up, and upgrade to a pc. I have a 8 gb 1070 and a i5 8400k, and I still have to put the game on low-medium on 1080p.

  • Moving from G6 to either X5 or Fiio K7
    I was this close to buying the K7 when I read the X5 review on I didn't know this product was about to go on sale here in the US. The X5 might be a little over-priced in comparison, but I trust the quality and sure wouldn't mind the bluetooth once in a while. Source: over 1 year ago

  • AMD RX 5700 XT strange clock speed limits
    Firstly, that there is still warranty for this card is wrong if the first user modded the bios? And secondly, how do I find the correct BIOS for my card?

So I am again at the point where the card is working but... Source: over 1 year ago
