are two 7970s enough for 4k? by HamiltonFuckinghall.hex - Mon, 18 Jul 2016 09:21:13 EST ID:dqcKkp8+ No.119452 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Had a computer with one gigabyte 7970 and an i7 quad core extreme with hyper threading for a few years now and it's served me very well

If I add a second 7970 in crossfire will it be good enough for 4K gaming? I've heard conflicting opinions in Google about how they might not work well enough in crossfire for it. Thanks for the help

But wasn't this whole thing about whether or not games used different textures for 4k?

No, it's about VRAM usage with 4k which all theory aside ranges from not much more than 1080p to a fuckton more. Depends on the engine/programming decisions.

Nope. It all goes back to >>119455 saying different textures are used at 4K resolutions, which is what most of the posts in the thread have been about. Guy never even mentioned a single game that does what he claimed "most" games do.

Except no. That post never once said that Different resolutions use different texture sets, it only stats that running 4K textures are gonna be an issue. If you're playing a game that's optimized for 1080p, you're probably going to be looking at textures that range from 512-1024 but modern games built to optimally support 4K will have support for at least 4096x4096 textures which simply aren't feasible to run on 3GB of VRAM without sacrificing quality and detail. Honestly, 4K just isn't worth it if you can't achieve the level of detail that resolution can provide.

When buying a used HDD, it can be a crapshoot because you don't know much wear it's been through and how much it's degraded over time.

But is this the case with SSDs? Since they aren't mechanical, I'm guessing a used one will work just as well as a new one (undamaged, that is), right?

SSDs have a limited number of write cycles, so there's that to worry about. It's normally intelligent about how it fails and there's no real danger of losing your data, but the amount of life left in the drive is still a crapshoot. I would never buy a used either one of them, given how cheap new drives are becoming. Unless it just came with a cheapass computer and I was planning on replacing the drive anyway.

I'm looking for a tablet.I had the 1st gen iPad when it came out. I used it to take notes during class and as a study aid;for Art History. I also streamed Netflix on it. Then it broke unfortunately.

This is no means a replacement for my laptop. So I want it to be light and portable.

So now Im wondering what will be the best tablet to buy once I find a job.
The only difference in usage is I want to use it for digital rendering. I guess the two main contenders would be iPad Pro and Surface Pro. With Samsung Galaxy tab somewhere in the running. I also may use it for word processing for last minute editing of reports.

Bare in mind that that guy's reviewing the SP3. The SP4's pen has 4 times the levels of sensitivity the SP3's had. In terms of stylus latency, they're all within the same margin so that aspect is a wash and it ultimately comes down to sensitivity levels and features like on-pen buttons and tilt awareness. None of these devices are clear winners of the others and each one is more or less geared to a slightly different niche.

I didn't realize that none of these tablets has a high sampling rate. Me is thinking what good are all those features if the sampling time resolution is so slow that what you are capturing are not the pixels the stylus passes over but a poly-line connecting some of the pixels in the path.

The think is lol microsoft, they have made the worst product for digitizer usage because they don't even apply their own research:
Keep in mind this has been done many years ago so if they'd put in the effort it would be in current products:

More on how that works:

Considering how this is probably implemented (A discrete ADC for every row and column) it would be to expensive for general purpose tablets, but the wacom should have it, considering the pricepoint.
Too bad the research there hasn't got a transparent touch surface implement yet.

Lately my computer has been running extra slow when loading things, like snail slow, and windows event viewer is showing a few errors mostly bad sectors detected, I have been doing chkdsk scans and looking at the drive with other software to search for issues but cant find any.

Is it windows that is fucking up my drive or something? I recently installed windows 10 and about a week after it started doing this, I also moved recently but kept my HDDs in my personal backpack so I don't think they were damaged.

Should I just backup data and completely reformat the drive and reinstall windows?

hdtune (the free version, not pro) will tell you if you have lots of bad sectors (look under drive health, reallocated sector count)

personally, I'd consider a driver or controller error if it's happening on multiple drives, since it's unlikely they fail at the same time.

Legally the carrier has to do this (for a fee) in the US if requested. Not sure how that system works if the phone is stolen or what the fuck an insurance block is... If the IMEI is clean you should be able to replace the SIM card with an activated one from another carrier on the same band using an unlocked phone and have everything work. Maybe you simply can't insure the device?

Banning happens at the network level. The only company that knows a phone's status before an activation attempt is the company that banned it in the first place.

At a minimum, the phone has to be paid for and you need to be a customer in good standing.

I just wondered, I have never heard of a microscopic telescope. By this I mean a device along the lines of a large nature-style camera lens or traditional telecope that is able to zoom in to the target area of a physical item and produce a 3d environment of that area through the lens? Surely theres an infinite amount of detail from a physical item We have all this advanced astronomical technology these days to look at things that lie in the distance. What would happen if technology was put into microscopic telecopes thanks everyone

He's right about the price gouging though. Even major retailers like Newegg do this shit with everything they can. The RX 480 8GB was supposed to be $239 but since launch day they were $259 to $269. The GTX 1070 FE was supposed to be $379 but it's been $449 since launch. Same shit happened with the last 1151 CPUs when they launched. Considering prices are always a big part of their marketing, it would be nice if they would do something about keeping prices more inline with what they pitch prior to their release.

I'd like to get a cheap computer for a poorfag who doesn't give a shit about high-end graphics, so long as it looks better than PS1.

For things like Doom, Age of Empires 2, Quake 3 and Max Payne (all on low),
and just browsing, listening to music (and porn for sure).

Do you think Desktop-Computers can run this kind of stuff?

Have an eye on
PC HP Compaq 8300 Elite SFF Intel Pentium Dual-Core G640 2x 2.8GHz
PC HP Compaq 8200 Elite SFF Intel Pentium Dual-Core G630 2x 2.7GHz
can get it for 100 bucks.

He could spend 200 max.

I'm going through my bin of 'old shit i never use' and this guy is still working after 10+years. it's not the best for wear, it's wifi stopped working some time ago, the disk drive is just a coaster (i pulled out the spindle a while back and put a nice thin corkboard on it) one of two usb 1.0 slots doesnt work. Instead of XP it's got ubuntu 7.04 (lol) on it (its currently upgrading to 14.04) and gosh dang if i dont tear up a little thinking about all the shit me and this guy went through.

anyway i can pxe win10 into it no problem, but idk if i want to. I found replacement disk drives and i'm fairly certain i can get wifi up and running again, i'm just kind of on the fence.

If you had this hardware what would you do? I already have 2 desktops, a laptop, and a tablet, it's superfluous but the insides are still goin strong, keys have a great click to 'em and the screen is great and i just dont wanna chuck it.
