    What's the most key point when you decide to get a 3d printer

    Quality of the prints. No use buying a 3d printer that is super finicky about working properly just to save a few bucks in the short term.

    i blew up my cheap harbor freight multimeter, what I do wrong?

    I've never fried one of the cheap HF meters. They are great for basic stuff. Then again, I grew up knowing how to use a multimeter. Probably started using one around age 8 or so. Only time I have seen on fried is when a family member was trying to test voltage and had the dial 180 off...

    XeSS sucks :^)

    Maybe I've just had the misfortune of having to fix / reprogram from scratch way too many projects. Then again, I have also worked with a decent amount of open source code and I usually want to gouge my eyes out.

    XeSS sucks :^)

    Heh.. no, the main reason for such small increases in speed for CPUs was because Intel didn't have much competition for quite a while. The main issue with program performance is because of crap programmers and them not caring one wit about performance. Usually, when I look at other's code I...

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    Yep. But Nvidia has shown time and time again that they are more slimy than ATI/AMD.

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    So it is pretty much crap. I remember way back when nVidia had the cheaty drivers where they would skip rendering some stuff in order to inflate the benchmark numbers. But now it is ok to do so because it is a "feature" and they aren't trying to hide it?

    Article: CAMM, Dell's new SODIMM standard

    There are plenty of forums posts (not necessarily here) asking about CPU upgrades and GPU upgrades for laptops. Not so much anymore, but the Dell Precision 4600 - 4800 / 6600 - 6800 were upgradeable.. had the option of either Nvidia or AMD. The 4600 is the newest one I did an upgrade on...

    Nvidia has "Unlaunched" the RTX 4080 12GB

    Supposedly PNY has them already to go. You can pre-order them.

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    I want to see side by side output quality comparisons with it disabled and enabled. If it turns the output quality to crap to boost the frame rate than it is still crap.

    NVIDIA DLSS 3 “Frame Generation” Lock Reportedly Bypassed

    Have you seen the reviews of the RTX 4090 cards? 4k looks pretty crazy playable to me. So much so that the review I watched said to not bother buying one of you play at 1440p or below because you are going to be CPU limited. The results showed that.

    Completely agree... But you are understating how bad it is IMO.

    Article: CAMM, Dell's new SODIMM standard

    I've done laptop CPU upgrades quite a few times. Now with newer laptops you have to buy a board with everything soldered on instead of just being able to upgrade what you want to. All in the name of making devices thinner.

    The CPUs for the most part are already all soldered on, even on the Precision models.

    Article: CAMM, Dell's new SODIMM standard

    Yeah, if the RAM is at least upgradeable then it is a good thing. The lower-end Dell laptops already have some models that have the RAM soldered on. RAM goes bad and the whole motherboard has to be replaced. User needs more RAM... Then they have to get a whole new laptop. The Precision...

    Windows cert manager asking for creds to open?

    I'm not sure how they have stuff set up but managing user certs doesn't normally require admin access. I don't have "god" level admin access at this job so I can't really go look at absolutely everything myself.
