    Intel Arc A-Series GPU's have full hardware AV1 decode and encode fwiw.

    Deck Accessories? Skins\Shells\Docks\etc tell us what we must have and post what you have. Likes\Dislikes etc.

    I don't know if it's considered an accessory but it was cheaper then some usb 3 hubs. I bought one of those $55 1080p projectors that popped up on S.D. I ended up using it while camping this weekend and played local movies off the deck through Kodi. (powered up decks usb 3 hdmi hub and...

    TIL. I suppose there is some merit if useful.. compared to RGB madness.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang hints at ‘exciting’ next-generation GPU update on September 20th Tuesday

    This is why I like my old Cooler Master HAF-XB's.. never have to worry about video card sag. not that I would ever entertain the idea of a 4 slot card. I wouldn't mind one of those lighted card support stick things though. Sort of looks like a minecraft version of a mini light saber.

    EVGA will no longer do business with NVIDIA

    Hopefully they don't go the way of BFG. IIRC BFG got out of GPU's first and not too long after.. poof. EVGA is more diversified (then BFG was back then) and they'll probably be alright. There are plenty of manufacturers making it without producing GPUs.

    My Arc 380 adventure.

    I haven't tried the A380 in my Ryzen system yet but am willing to see if it's an issue. I didn't even know wtf rebar was until it told me I wasn't running it. Looked it up and saw it was primarily a game boosting feature and pretty much useless in my use case and the ops as a...

    Cheap USB-PD Laptop

    You can find cheap Lenovo T440p's on ebay. (under $200) They're workhorses (they're basically older model business laptops) and everything can be swapped out on them super easily. LCD, cpu, keyboard, etc. You can find the docking station under $30 that gets you all the ports like multiple...

    My Arc 380 adventure.

    fwiw.. I'm not using rebar but stuck my A380 in a H77 w/ 4790K if that matters.

    Vintage USRobotics External Modem & Power Supply

    Not sure it helps but the adapter from my USR .34 dual standard is 20v but no polarity listed interestingly. So looks like an ac to ac adapter like you stated

    Cheap no frills cell plan

    If you just need wifi calling and can use google voice, tie it into a voip box (I use a obihai obi200) and a regular home telephone system. I have 5 handsets spread throughout the house. Haven't paid any monthly fees although all I use it for these days is to find my cell phone.

    Intel rumored to announce Arc A750, A380 desktop cards in late May/early June for 350/150 USD respectively

    not anything that people with intel pc's haven't experienced with modern quicksync support. I had a choice of buying a new mb/cpu or $139 video card. AV1 was just a bonus and hope Plex get's onboard soon. If not.. all the other major competitors support it already. I was using the 1080 for...

    Intel rumored to announce Arc A750, A380 desktop cards in late May/early June for 350/150 USD respectively

    I purposely didn't watch the tech jesus video on ARC driver issues to see what I get without any bias. I had the same jankiness with trying to install ARC control. (found a blurb in the release notes that says install failure is normal, lmao) Latest drivers did install and I didn't have any...
