    Hopefully that's not just under specific workloads due to something like the addition of avx512 that only some programs can make use of. If its General IPC improvement and if they can squeeze some higher clocks out of 7nm things are looking good.
  2. Your right they now have a 1 day sale on the ThinkPad E585 $949 It has a 2500U, 15.6" screen, 256G PCI-E SSD.
  3. Here we go finally found a AMD option seems there is very few available in AU for some reason AMD Ryzen 5 2500U Quad core with AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics $764.1 14.0" FHD IPS (1920x1080) AntiGlare 8GB(4+4) DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM 128GB Solid State Drive PCIe OPAL2.0 M.2 2242 (16GT/s) https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-edge/ThinkPad-E485/p/20KUCTO1WWENAU0 2700u model with a 15.6" display and a 1tb HDD in addition to the SSD $944 https://www.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/thinkpad/thinkpad-edge/ThinkPad-E585/p/22TP2TEE585 Unfortunately these deals end today
  4. These are worth a look with about 3x the GPU power https://www.metabox.com.au/store/Gaming-Laptops/Alpha-Range/Buy https://www.dell.com/en-au/shop/dell-laptops/inspiron-15-7000-gaming/spd/inspiron-15-7567-laptop/z511270au
  5. Main thing you will notice for basic use is the size and quality of the SSD. For any modern games you really want a quad core and a half decent GPU Which laptops are you looking at exactly?

    Smallest, most direction antenna

    How would a cantena go with FM? works well for WiFi Obviously not going to have the signal strength of a yagi but if its only over 300m http://www.turnpoint.net/wireless/cantennahowto.html http://www.turnpoint.net/wireless/has.html

    Thanks Is there a list of these handy little shortcuts somewhere?

    Ah even making new posts. Enter puts text down two lines instead of one using phone or PC. Unless using bulleted list. I may need to reformat the whole thing.

    Just had a look in the parts guide and there is some extra gaps that shouldn't be there SSD Cache Intel Optane 16\32GB $35\69 Cache Real World Review HDD 1TB 7200rpm $55 PSU Corsair CX450 Bronze 5y $62 -OR- SilverStone ET550-G Gold 550W 3y $79 CASE Deepcool Smarter $39 For example if i press backspace to remove the gaps this happens SSD Cache Intel Optane 16\32GB $35\69 Cache Real World ReviewHDD 1TB 7200rpm $55 PSU Corsair CX450 Bronze 5y $62 -OR- SilverStone ET550-G Gold 550W 3y $79CASE Deepcool Smarter $39 As far as i can see the button that revealed the code has disappeared which makes this difficult to fix and I'm unable to copy the thread with all the tweaks to a external text editor.

    Cyberpunk 2077 - 48 minutes preview!

    As apposed to what turn based top down like Xcom or third person? Cant say I like third person myself as a PC gamer but it seems to suit consoles.
  13. Did some tests when I upgraded from 3770k to 6700k which has exactly the same IPC as 8700k but two less cores and doesn't OC as far. https://www.overclock.net/forum/18051-memory/1611359-3770k-vs-6700k-fallout-4-arma-3-rainbow-six-siege-core-cache-memory-scaling-ddr3-1600c11-2133c9-ddr4-2133c15-3000c12-4000c17.html As you can see for some games the 3770k will struggle to maintain the high FPS your chasing but for other games it will do fine. AMD Ryzen 2600 and i5 8600k would be the sweat spots at the moment for value. Once overclocked the 8600k is noticeably quicker in CPU bound games but AMD is competitive again. Intel has a 8 core chip on the way if you really want to pay a premium for something that will hold up like the Q6600 did. For overclockable RAM you want sticks with Samsung B die chips these start at 3200c14 which is what I'm using which hit 4000c17 but there is higher binned sticks like 3600c15 if you really want to push it. You know i use to be a guru I think i may have lost about 10k from my post count aswell. Oh and Nvidia has new GPU on the way but with no competition from AMD there 2080TI will probably cost ~2k AU or you can get ex mining 1080ti for ~!$700 on OCAU at the moment which is rather tempting.

    Wicked. Nice to see some of the best old school gameplay in there vs a lot of the boring modern crap. It will be interesting to see how they can improve on the graphics\lighting that's is lacking a bit in some places. Had a good laugh about the guy continuing to complain about his legs after his head was gone.

    Desktop build

    PC don't start slowing down unless there full of dust and overheating in which case you clean it. If they start fee;ling sluggish its due to software usually viral activity and a heap of bloat in the background maybe a failed windows update creating high CPU usage in which case reinstalling windows is the easiest fix.
