Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Interestingly Australia where I am from is doing pretty well the last several weeks.  Things have resumed to pretty much normal now, but it worries me that they are letting infected people back from overseas while trying to quarantine them, but that is not 100% without risks and as a result there is...

Not sure about the LEDs, but I dislike them are try to get parts without RGB if I can or ones that can be toggled at the hardware level, ie. a switch on in bios. Or worse case just unplug the cable for the LEDs like some GPUs have. Gen 4 is basically 2x the transfer speed as gen 3 for not much more ...

There is some coming for my X 470 as well next month I think but I might sell it and get a B550 tomahawk instead as I want to get a gen 4 ssd and it also has a switch to disable the RGB, my board it's on all the time, no way to turn it off unless I install the bloatware RGB software.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

What version of nvidia drivers are the newest that will run SE 0.991 without problems?

I only get 14-35 fps at my current settings but with lots of stuttering and jerking. I am limited in every way.  CPU, GPU, vram, and system ram.   New PC due in the new year but am going to try snag a 6800XT tonight.  Want a reference model so I can guarantee a water block for it but there is only 1...

These are my settings, ultra but with LOD and loading speed set to max.  It does work but rather jerky and slow but I rather put up with poor performance for the high visuals.

Some example pics with these settings.

Yeah I have a few good canyon shots on here from a while back. I normally set all the graphics settings to max for the screenshots but run high to ultra normally (although at a lousy 14-20fps)

So now that the 30 series reviews are out what do people think? To me it looks a lot like a repeat of the 200 series back in 09 or so. Back then a massive increase(almost double) the FPUs, massive increase in transistor count, big TDP increase but only a modest gain in performance, actually these ar...

Ryzen 4000 when it comes out, probably a 12 core. 

and water cooling will be a must!

Well I don't know any different from water cooling, so of course.

Why is Nvidia recommeded over AMD GPU's?

Yeah I remember well the whole OEM "incentives" intel pulled back in the early 2000s.  One of the reasons I went Athlon instead, well and that P4 sucked and Athlon was way cheaper too. Not sure if i'll go nvidia or AMD for the GPU this time around, still waiting on the release of RDNA2 to...
