    Intel Graphics drivers not installing "Not Supported"

    I used Intel Driver update utility to try to update my drivers, but I get an error saying my system doesn't meet the minimum requirements and is unsupported but clearly is supported. I tried installing the zip and .exe version on the Intel driver website and I got the same error.

    Does Ryzen potentially "kill" the unofficial consumer Xeon DIY PC builds?

    I've recently been following all the historical adulation and love for Xeon CPUs that could directly fit consumer boards (LGA 1366 or 2011) or the more recent ones that could easily overclock via BLCK (LGA 1151 on C232 chipsets), especially the E3 series of quad-code hyperthreading CPUs. From...

    Running 4 RAM sticks on Z170?

    This computer's on the fritz, and it feels fairly long in the tooth, so it's time for an upgrade. Trouble is, I'm looking to have the full 64GB of RAM supported by Skylake, but 2x16GB to begin with. Was told by AsRock that Z170 can't run RAM at it's full rated speed, when using all four...

    Draw Call Performance In Fallout 4

    Riding on the back of my previous thread, where users ran an old instancing demo to investigate AMD's draw call performance, I'm extremely curious as to where Ryzen falls in a "modern" game; lots of draw calls, lots of background processing, and huge draw distances. The reason why, is that all...

    Ryzen-A Fail for Gamers?

    Many have expressed amazement on just how AMD was able to catch up to Intel with Ryzen, especially with the 1800X, in the computing and productivity sectors. However, from a purely gamer's perspective, it is almost impossible to miss the fact that 1800X trails Intel's 7700K slightly to...

    [HELP] When a game doesn't see the GPU

    Hello! I have a problem running UT2004 on my Dell Inspiron 7559 laptop. It works in OpenGL mode, but certain things are not possible there, so that's only a last solution. The problem is that when the renderer is D3D 8, the game only runs on the integrated Intel 530, even when it is instructed...

    [Part 1] Measuring CPU Draw Call Performance

    (Part 2 - Much more appropriate settings!) Before Intel released their Core 2 architecture, their CPUs had the same level of draw call performance as their AMD performance equivalents. Trouble is, Core 2 was several times (>3x) better at handling draw calls then it's predecessors, as well as...

    Bios options in Kaby Lake laptop

    Should AMD spin off high-level SIMD to a separate chip?

    Consider the following: 1) CPUs used to do the work of GPUs. We can see from the evolution of the discreet GPU the advantages of having them separate: a) nimbleness – upgrade GPU without having to upgrade CPU/board b) more chip space – more space to use for transistors from having separate...
