[quote]I had no idea about the cap. Guess I know now though! [/quote] What's weird is that I didn't find it out until I had crossfire 290s, yet prior to that I was running 3-way crossfire with my 7970s and 280X, which scores higher than the 290s. I'm almost certain I was running those centered w...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
It's possible that the wrong XMP profile was flashed onto the RAM sticks. Doesn't affect performance by manually setting the specs, but it would definitely make it a pain in the arse for people who don't know what to do or how. ...

re: Intel i5 or i7 chip...huge difference? - ILikeLSUToo
I wouldn't necessarily chase after the latest and greatest for a browser/netflix/office laptop. But in general, CPUs get faster, lithography smaller, and they use less power. Integrated GPU gets improved incrementally as well, depending on the model. The popular i5 being used in modern laptops i...

I just looked that shite up. Blue said that, not me! :lol: Back then, I actually had no idea there was a difference. Wasn't until I had cards that noticeably exceeded 120fps that I realized it was capping....

[quote]I think the first one was stretched and the others were centered. [/quote] If so, that is 100% the problem. If you run it centered, the frame rate caps at 120 so the benchmark assumes that's the best the cards can do. Not a big deal with weaker cards that can't reach 120, but an SLI setup ...

re: PC Discussion - Gaming, Performance and Enthusiasts - ILikeLSUToo
Can you use OSD or some other tool to monitor your clock speed while benching? The difference in graphics scores between 23567 and 23334 is negligible enough to be standard deviation. It's the big drop from your initial benchmark run that is strange. Do you remember everything you did (software inst...

re: Siri, Cortana, Droid knockoff? - ILikeLSUToo
I didn't realize Siri had location-based reminders now. I was using an older version of iOS to keep my jailbreak. For the other stuff like reminders and opening apps, I wasn't saying Google is better at it, but rather responding to the question "does anyone use virtual assistants." Mainly, Google...

[quote]It fluctuates just a little but on it run was slightly higher. The graphics score dropped from 29,6008K to around 24,500K. [/quote] One thing that annoys me about these Maxwell cards is their overzealous focus on power consumption. When they hit their TDP limit, they automatically throttl...

re: Siri, Cortana, Droid knockoff? - ILikeLSUToo
I used Siri heavily for reminders and such. Now that I have a Nexus, I use the shite out of Google Now. It is superior to Siri in pretty much every way. I don't use it to read e-mails to me or send texts, but reminders are a lifeline for me. Location-based reminders are the tits. Also good for openin...

As kingbob said, the primary difference is hyperthreading. Both chips have the same single core performance, which will be most important for the basic stuff you said you'll be doing. The hyperthreading would likely never be used....

re: 120gb SSD for $20 after rebate - ILikeLSUToo
[quote]Q. Is an OCZ SSD a bargain at any price? As I recall, they went bankrupt and were poorly regarded all along. I'd stick to Intel, Samsung, Crucial, and Sandisk.

This is not typical of the rebates I'm used to seeing on computer parts. Generally, it's: - Fill out our stupid form with your info and product info - Cut out UPC and paste it on form - Print out invoice/receipt from place of purchase. - Stuff it in an envelope and wait a couple of months. ...
