  • Thunderbolt, eh? I'm guessing that's still a wee bit above what I usually need/pay. I'd like it if you made a vid about how viable Thunderbolt is today because last time I looked it wasn't very viable (in the sense that you had a very small amount of options, to the extent that you had to chose between thunderbolt or some other functions) as well as how far gaming mouse industry is from changing to USB-C (or at least include an adapter), considering how the laptop industry seems to exclude the A more and more.

  • Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:7 [KJV]) ::*:: When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. (Mark 2:17 [KJV]) ::*:: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:13 [KJV])

  • An email i just sent to dell Case number 101******** It has been a couple of months working on this case. First it was a simple gpu issue, then in spite of knowing that I had to go through all of the company processes that took days of calling back for that to be verified. Fair enough you want to ensure its a hardware problem before sending out replacements that makes sense. A few weeks pass while dell is finding a replacement part to send to a technician. Eventually the technician actually contacts me after quite some time of customer service telling me that the technician tried to call and left a message. Non of which there is evidence for on my end. We set a time and date for the repair to take place. The technician comes and asks me what the issue is. I think "he should know, I guess he's just double checking". So I explain there's an issue with the gpu. He tells me that that's odd because he's been sent a motherboard. I think "oh God. This man has never worked on a laptop in the past 10 years... maybe its just a small blind spot" eventually the repairs begin. He tugs on half of the battery not knowing that its separated into two parts both of which have screws. I think "wow he didn't even look at a video tear down of this laptop...I've done more research than a dell sanctioned technician" he has me hold what I believe to be some kind of audio daughter board rather than unplugging it. Loses some screws doesn't order the screws meaning the safety screws could end up anywhere...ect. At the end the base plate won't go on and the back lighting doesn't work. They say that they'll order replacements. Later I discover that it won't charge. I ask for a refund or replacement. Days later I'm told replacements are impossible so refund will be done. I send my laptop off I ask a few questions as to time span... no response. A touch of background on me: one of my jobs at a company I formally held work at was fixing servers both software and hardware. Dell servers in fact. I didn't quite understand why when the warning read "please contact customer care" we would try to fix it or just throw it away if we were unable. I now understand. Another part of my job was software and graphic development... that I needed that laptop for... I no longer work for that company. So can you A. Answer my questions in a timely manner and or B. give me job as your technicians are less knowledgeable and more destructive to devices than I have ever been. So I might be an improvement.

  • Crazily expensive RTX 3080@4K 60... but only 10GB video memory. Just for starters, even an ancient game engine like Fallout 76's uses over 12GB of video memory sometimes at 4K ultra textures on my 16GB Radeon RX 6800 GPU. Since I still have more video memory than even that crazy texture memory useage, no jitters or slowdowns when you turn around in a high detail area. Less video memory = jerks and stutters when you turn around in a high detail map area. Just say no to nVidia's memory cheapness.

    VildaVildaپیش 10 روز
  • I'm sorry AMD you have done well but my money is still on Intel. I'm waiting for 8 Core Tiger Lake H 45W CPUs with Thunderbolt 4 for eGPU. I could even wait for Alder Lake P. Intel should really have adopted PCIe4.0 for Thunderbolt 4 so that eGPUs have more bandwidth. Still I have more faith on Thunderbolt on USB-C. We might even get PCIe 5.0 on Thunderbolt with Alder Lake.
