Prior to Ryzen 5000..not any more. I was on Intel from i7 920 (after moving from a Phenom 965) until the 9900k so up to that point I never felt that AMD offered what I needed. Today is a different story.
LOL You do know about PBO+CO, right?
With that style of OCIng it still beats anything Intel so not sure what your point is other than "brand loyalty".
Quick run of CB 20 just for a reference. Can Intel do that without burning the house down? 😁
LOL between the lines? I was a 9900k owner and when he did the awards and gave it best overall, I agreed with all he said about the processor. He picked it as BEST overall, nothing to read between the lines. Unfortunately, you seem to be determined to find a reason for Steve's evaluation of the...
Actually when everyone else was bashing Intel, GN still gave the 9900k best overall CPU award so hardly a biased channel but when something is bad is just bad. People need to accept that and not try to blame on bias.
I will NEVER understand fanboys. I was using Intel since the i7 920 (switched from an AMD phenom 965) up to the 9900k because every time I wanted to update, Intel was offering the CPUs that fit my needs best. This time, it was AMD that had the ones that made more sense so I switched. NEITHER...
So, this is odd...yesterday I forgot to disconnect my Quest 2 from the original USB Type C cable and noticed that my Mouse and my Blaster X3 had flickering lights as if they were receiving some power still even though my PC was off.
I even unplugged the power cord and still the same..that REALLY...
Guess if you don't know how to do PBO and CO then you can get some improvement from CTR over stock or bad bios overclock.
But at this point, unless you want to brag about specific benchmarks with CTR, PBO+CO is superior.
Those are very exaggerated claims.
I have tried all betas so far. Its interesting but far from useful for me at least. For instance, you get this settings from the program auto tune and it all looks great then try a quick blender bmw and pc reboots. CSGO... Reboots.. Photoshop.. Reboots.
I wonder if that is what I have noticed in Aircar VR where the game seems to run very smoothly but panning seems jerky or sudden stutters then it goes away and runs super smooth again. I am pushing rendering but still..
So from tests, it seems most games load about the same speed from the SSD as they do from NVME with small differences and both much better than HDDs.
So I figured I could get a 4TB SSD for a lower price than NVME to fill the one SATA port I still have available and move most of my slow...
I am trying to help a friend 5000 miles away with her Asus laptop that is booting to a black screen with a pointer after a Windows update.
Nothing is working so far...tried to bring up taskbar but nothing, tried Reset keeping her files, restore point, but it does not get the work done...
For headphones by far my favorite is the Skullcandy Crusher EVO as i can adjust the bass when i want that visceral impact that complements the immersion levels of VR perfectly.
Feeling the rattle of shots in Roborecall for exame is epic
Now i just need to order my bHaptics to be complete.
Toms review for example
Increased Vampire Power
Poor transient response
Lower than 70% efficiency with 2% load
No Alternative Sleep Mode support
Ripple with 110% load
Such a shame cause the g3 was fantastic.
