The extra money comes from tax. From their website: Pricing All prices in EKWB web shop include 22% Slovenian VAT that is applicable for all Slovenian and EU customers. All other international customers will be invoiced price without VAT. International B2B customers from EU with valid VAT number don’t need to pay the VAT if valid VAT number is provided. All prices in EKWB web shop exclude shipping costs which are payable separately after delivery address is...
They caused quite a disruption by releasing an affordable HEDT processor on a mainstream chipset. Despite Ryzen's current quirks, such a match-up doesn't leave much room for another product line due to its all-encompassing nature. Granted, it doesn't do them all exceptionally well, but at that price, it's enough to undercut the demand for Intel's HEDT lineup. If this is true, then we will most likely find out at Computex what "X399" will bring. Prosumers may be in for a...
Did X58 last this long? This August will mark 5 years of being on X79 and I still don't see any chipset worth upgrading to. Quad channel DDR3 still offers gobs of bandwidth and throughput, we have plenty of lanes, overclocked Sandy's and Ivy's won't bottleneck at 4K (probably stock too unless you're running poorly threaded games), R4BE can use PCIe NVMe, and we still have really good I/O options.
Good results for a stock cooler. If you squint hard enough, you'll see that all of the benches were done at 100% fan speed. So, it might have peaked at 63C on the TimeSpy benchmark, but it was pretty loud in the process. Hybrid/AIO coolers (EVGA Hybrid/ GB Xtreme Waterforce) should achieve the same clocks but at lower temperatures and much lower fan speeds. I was thinking about getting Vega, but these numbers are looking really good. My stock 980Ti scores 18385 in FS...
I believe it's not the TIM that causes high temperatures, but the glue holding the heatspreader to the PCB. It increases the height of the heatspreader, and therefor the distance between the heatspreader and the die The bigger distance you have, the less effective heat transfer is. People have also noticed a temperature increase over time with non-metal TIM due to a pump-out effect. The surface of the die is extremely smooth, smoother than your typical aluminum/copper...
Ivan doesn't explicitly say that the monitor supports DP 1.2a's adaptive sync, but instead explains that it has 1.2a and that one of the features of 1.2a is adaptive sync.
I read their product page and manual, and you can't select Freesync in Radeon Settings. If it supported DPAS, they would have marketed as such - a Freesync monitor. But don't take it from me if you're the type that won't be satisfied until you have cold hard facts. Contact LG. Their response should be proof enough
You'll have to contact LG for the specifics of the hardware they use in their monitors. You also have the firmware to take into consideration. While AMD's FAQ does generalize a bit, I believe they explain what needs to be explained clearly. Adaptive sync is just a feature that DP has. Freesync is able to use that feature, but in able for it to be used, certain requirements need to be fulfilled. You need a Freesync monitor, or a monitor that has DP1.2a or above and the...
SImply put, a monitor can support a displayport standard, but not be able to use all of its features due to hardware limitations. In the case of this LG, even though it uses DP1.2a, the scaler in the monitor doesn't support adaptive refresh rates, and as such, it isn't marketed as one. This is essentially a 32" tv panel with a typical monitor OSD and connectivity options. Adaptive sync and Freesync are different, but related. Adaptive sync is a VESA standard, and...
I remember playing around with that a couple years ago. It was pretty hit or miss on the videos, and when I could get it to work, I didn't think it was good as SVP. Maybe things have changed since then. Maybe if Vega is good I'll test again.
