  1. Today
  2. You might have already covered that but have you figured out what GPU(s) to use, or do you plan to mount a temporary one until AMD, NV (& Intel Xe?) spring their latest workstation/prosumer offerings ? BTW, AMD 6800 looks very good ...and AMD 6900 might be mega...
  3. How about a quick trip to London ? (4K png converted to jpg...best viewing with 'open in new tab') Leaving Haethrow...check out that puny A380 compared to my bird... Order ! Order !! ORDER !!! ...so that's how that bridge looks like from the bottom... ...time to visit the O2... ...time for a night flight back...switched to s.th. a bit faster
  4. IME, when AMD drivers mess up, they REALLY mess up. Mine have been solid for the most part, but there have been a few releases that never should have been released to the public.
  5. A lot of anti science people here for a computer forum. Take the tiki torch back to the flat earther convention.
  6. Yesterday
  7. I used to run crossfire in the 1800 days when you needed a master cards lol. Plus a handful up through the 5870s. I never once had issues. I won't discount others experiences but I never once suffered from bad amd drivers.
  8. Exactly this^^^ Not the quality of the cables. It's analog vs digital to the receiver. The sound quality is good using the rca cables, but the hdmi audio sounded a little bit cleaner.
  9. That is how my laptop will end up :). It has an internal battery!
  10. I don't know about a laptop, but this is what happens when you crunch World Community Grid on a phone.
  11. Ok there Jensen....lol Seriously though, I've ran a myriad of cards since ATI, nVidia, 3dfx; you name it, chances are I had one. I have two AMD cards now; a 5700xt and a 5700. I experience NONE of the issues people were discussing. Over that past 7-8 years I've had 2x R9 290s, a 980 ti and 1080 ti and more recently the 5700 cards; one at work and one at home. I've never really experienced any driver issues with any. I think the "AMD drivers suxor" is vastly overblown. Are AMD's software features up to nVidia's? Of course not. But it's nowhere near the probl
  12. AMD drivers are not the best. Up until recently, when I purchased a 2070 and a 2070 max Q, I was an AMD user. I started with Quadfire (4 x 4890XXX Black Edition), moved to crossfire (2 x 270x), and ended up with a single 280x. I was plagued by driver issues for years. This whole AMD FineWine (tm) is not my thing. Since I moved to NVIDIA, everything just works.
  13. banned...coz, after sweet small children and cuddly, fluffy pandas, who is left to ban ?
  14. ^nice ! ...per above YT clips I posted (GTX 1070 / 1080p), it is certainly possible to play at lower resolutions and with older hardware. However, per original post, I wanted to focus, albeit not exclusively, on '4K Ultra / dense objects settings and SLI - CFR' in this thread...basically max on what is possible, including in low flights Speaking of 'dense object' settings in MS FS 2020, I will probably dial back car traffic (which moves, has headlights at night etc) a bit...highways are getting crowded...and I already showed 'too much' ship traffic
  15. Thanks for the clarificaitons!
  16. What I was trying to say: if you know how many Points Per Day the CPU and GPU produce together, you could check what the GPU produces alone. Compare those results and you might find out that it's more efficient to run GPU only. Less heat most likely means that the GPU will clock a bit higher resulting in lower Time Per Frame so more (bonus)points! 1.4 million on a laptop is really good! Those temps are not bad at all, I was expecting a bit higher
  17. I have banned small sweet children just for smiling, this will be easy.
  18. It is, I've watched it and it's brilliant.
  19. Intel have some deep digging to do and quickly, assuming they don't want to sit in second place for too long. Love that the underdog is coming back BUT as always we need competition to keep prices in order, does us no good if AMD were to easily hold the crown.
  20. ...how about some cute & cuddly Pandas instead ? I dare you to ban those ...
  21. That is actually not that bad considering the fact its a laptop. Nice going.
  22. If I unleash both CPU and GPU to their max clocks, it will go up to 85 centigrade with fans spinning at 4700 RPM. If I put more juice on the GPU and less on the CPU, it will stabilize between 72-77 centigrade with fans at 4500 RPM.
  23. Nice ! How toasty does it get ?
  24. Hmm I might need a dictionary to understand what you said. Laptop GPU Power
