    Question GPU Power consumption in games

    While playing Fallout 4 and Far cry Primal I noticed that my RX 460 was not drawing its full 76W as it does in Furmark and other games. It was stuck at 52 W and I got only 24fps. However the GPU utilisation was not dropping much , only to 98% when the drops ocurred. Is this behaviour normal? I...

    Just traded a 7th gen i5 w/ 1060 laptop for a Ryzen 2 system, big mistake with ryzen 3xxx coming?

    Now that WattMan allows you to modify every P-state, has this changed the way you undervolt your Vega?

    Title, basically. Over the past year, I've been accustomed to only changing the P6 and P7 states on my Vega 64. I usually set both of these to 1000mv for my particular undervolt. But now that WattMan allows you to change every P-State, I wonder if I should do something differently? I've noticed...

    Question Threadripper freezes when rendering using Adobe Media Encoder

    So I built a 1950x TR with the intention of it being able to handle pretty much anything I throw at it editing wise. I was having the same freezing issues a while back and someone on another forum said that I was having these issues due to my cpu being undervolted. So I upped it from 1.350v to...

    Question Is it possible that my CPU is giving a false temperature reading?

    Replaced a CPU fan on an HP Pavilion g7-2325dx and the whole install went smoothly, I even cleaned off the CPU and the heatsink with an alcohol pad and applied some new Arctic Silver MX-4 thermal paste.

    Question what is the best RAM for AMD ryzen 7 2700x

    I'm not sure what RAM to use for the 2700x build. Would like to go with DDR4-3000 or 3200. I'm looking at either GSkill or Corsair. I don't really care about LED lights or heat sink colors. The motherboard is an ASUS x470 Strix-F Gaming. Also, I need to run 32gb of RAM. So is it better to...

    Sapphire Nitro Vega 64 $499 @ newegg

    May not be the best discount ever, but it is finally a decent price on a very good Vega card. Sapphire is THE brand to get for high end AMD cards IMO, and this has triple fans unlike the lesser pulse version. Cheaper than powercolor and Asus competitor cards for Vega 64. Only problem is a 1080...
