So a 1650 Super is "recommended spec". That's for 1080p high with no RT, but for what FPS nobody really knows. You're basically between minimum and recommended so I'd probably try Medium to start and

Yep, it's the MsMpEng Microsoft Malwares Protection binary.

Well, it seems that their malware software is causing other programs to hang which annoys me a lot. I didn't even use to see the white icon in the right corner of my taskbar since I use Kaspersky and that used to disable the Microsoft sh*t. Now it seems to be on all the time which is annoying.

 

Is there any point in using Kaspersky then? I mean it seems to block more stuff, especially online, but I'd rather save some CPU cycles in those moments when a new file is scanned or something.

 

Edit: The Microsoft stuff seems to take more CPU resources when it scans random files compared to Kaspersky.

You can disable via services.msc, just change "Microsoft Antimalware Service" from "startup" to "disabled".

I'd say the MS Antivirus is good enough, as long as you don't download some shady crap from the Internet (cracked .EXEs, etc.).

 

It is a bit annoying to use on a HDD and can cause some lags, so I have it disabled on my main PC. It works just fine on my laptop, which has an SSD.

Have any of you rooted your phone? What's your experience? Did you regret it? What did you use to root it?

 

I am looking at maybe using OneClickRoot to root my S8 as the reviews on it are good and looks simple enough to use but just wondering what ya'll experience was.

 

I have various reasons for why I want to root my s8 one of them having the ability to completely block ads as they are getting really out of hand that was the one thing I like about my iPad I downloaded a VPN Ad Blocker and it blocks all ads in broswer and apps.

 

I tried using the DNS699 app which is also a VPN to block ads but it doesn't work sadly but like I said I have a few other reasons not just ad blocking.

Rooting is great. I have done it on just about every device I've owned. Beware though: if you use Snapchat, they will ban your account if you try to log in while rooted. Not sure if any other apps do that.

It doesn't allow you to do that. Not anymore it seems.

Try running services as administration so you get the UAC prompt.

I've fixed the MSI Afterburner issue.

 

In order to start it, I have made a macro command using a certain key. I would tell you which key, but I can't coz if I press it, Afterburner will start lol.

 

This eliminates the need to alt-tab out of games.

So you eliminated your problem by substituting it with one that is a lot worse?

Lol I'd rather just alt tab than have to worry about not hitting a key when typing.

if you couldn't set it up natively in Afterburner I'm sure Windows Task Scheduler would have been the significantly easier method.

Yes Hardstyle you're correct. Blaze I have no idea what that even is.

 

I've fixed the problem properly this time, I set it up natively through Afterburner's settings. Turns out selecting the Windows icon in the Afterburner menu isn't enough.

So i'm starting the process of builting a new gaming rig and I have a question about my CPU...

 

What are the chances of the i5 becoming obsolete in the next 5 years? and is there much difference between the 8400 and the 8600? beside the $70 price difference? and how easy would it be for me to upgrade my CPU in the future if need be?

Considering quad cores have held up for about a decade now I'd say those chances are very slim but you can never be sure in this business, five years is a long time.

 

I'm guessing you're talking about the 8600K and not the normal 8600. If you don't do any overclocking the difference is 300MHz at every turbo level. Probably not that noticeable. At stock speeds the 8400 is king when it comes to bang for your buck.

 

Upgrading CPU in the future is literally a easy as taking out the old one and putting the new one in. Nothing else.

That's assuming there will be new CPUs for the motherboard in question, which in the case of Intel is debatable. Edited by yojc

a new CPU upgrade will most likelly come with a new motherboard upgrade aswell. lets say he is going for the i5-6600k, in the future when its time to upgrade again will he upgrade to the 7700k (the best for z270/370 chipset) or to the newest chipset at the time? this goes for AMD aswell, not just intel.

Yes of course. I only covered the physical aspect as I understood the question to concern upgrading from a Coffee Lake i5 to a Coffee Lake i7 in the future.

 

If you want to upgrade to a whole new generation of CPU in the future then you also need to check for compatibility which, considering Intel has already confirmed new chipsets, will most likely not exist.

Well, at least in the case of AMD (assuming they keep their promise) all their AM4 motherboard should be compatible with the upcoming 3000 and 4000-series Ryzens. That's not much, but at least it's something I guess...

This may sounds like a stupid question, but... Today I realised something.

 

Back in the days of 2001 - there were games that played well on PS2's 32mb RAM PS2 (like GTA3). But, if we wanted to play it on PC - we needed at least 128mb of RAM.

 

But now, PS4 have 8 gigs of RAM and I don't recall any game on PC that need more RAM than that.

 

So, the question is - Are developers getting lazy and they doesn't push it to the limit of consoles hardware or the hardware is so unified and consoles are just PC?

 

PS. Yes, I know RAM is just one of many things that have impact on perfomance.

1. Current-gen consoles have pretty much the same architecture as PCs, unlike older consoles which were entirely different.

2. Some of the RAM on PCs is reserved for the OS and background programs - not so much on the consoles.

3. On current consoles the memory is shared between CPU and GPU. On PC each one gets its own memory (RAM and VRAM).

4. There are PC games that will happily make use of 16 gigs of RAM, mostly titles based on EA's Frostbite engine. They don't necessarily require that much, but it will make some difference.

#2 Actually...

 

A new source familiar with the matter has provided additional information to Digital Foundry that confirms only 4.5GB of the PS4's 8GB GDDR5 memory pool is guaranteed to game developers right now, while also clarifying how the PS4's "flexible memory" works in practice.

In real terms, an additional 512MB of physical RAM may be available in addition to the 4.5GB mentioned in the SDK. Flexible memory consists of physical and virtual spaces, and the latter introduces paging issues which impact performance. In our original story we combined them together.
For practical game applications, the correct figures for this story, as we understand it now, are a guaranteed 4.5GB for development and a further 512MB from the flexible pool. We have updated the headline accordingly.

 

---------

 

But still. Any computer with 4 gigs of ram and 2 gigs of VRAM can handle any PS4 game on same quality i think?

Actual processing power is so much more important to consider than the amount of RAM to judge performance in any machine.

 

Yes, but for machines like PS2 or PS3 is almost impossible to verify actual processing power I think

I meant that since console system software is more specialised and focused on specific tasks (gaming), it might be able to achieve lower resource consumption compared to a more open-ended desktop OS. Should've worded myself better. Edited by yojc

Current generation of consoles basically run identical game code as the PC version. It's not like back in the day, when you had to write a lot of code from scratch to get a console port going. I've worked on XBOne and PS4 ports of a couple of PC titles. XBOne almost compiles out of the box. The biggest problem was getting asynchronous HDD access set up, IIRC. PS4 is a touch trickier, since it has a more *nix like API and a completely different graphics library. But even that wasn't anything remotely like a total re-write.

 

The biggest problem with current console lineup is that they have abysmally bad cache performance on CPUs. All the RAM in the world isn't going to help you if you can't get to it. A cache miss on PC hurts. But a cache miss on XBOne is just devastating. And PS4 has additional cache issues with interlocked operations, which makes matters worse. I seriously don't know how they managed to screw up this badly, but here we are.

I was just thinking instead of building a whole new rig right now I'll just upgrade my graphics card and my IHD but I have a question the current card in my desktop is...

 

Length: 5.7
Height: 4.376 inches
Width: Double Slot
Is Double Slot & Dual Slot the same thing?
If so the cards I am looking at are single fan with the following specs so will a card with these specs fit inside my desktop?
Height 4.38 in. (111.15 mm)
Length 6.80 in. (172.72 mm)
Width Dual Slot
I have a ROG Desktop and a lot of the parts aren't interchangeable just the HD and Graphics Card and the slot where the graphic card goes there is a metal bar that stops anything bigger like a two fanned card which I tried before but it didn't fit so I had to sell it on eBay for $100 less than what I pad for it

Yes, they are the same thing. The new card would be 1" longer than the new one but unless you have the smallest case in history a 7" card shouldn't be a problem. Measure if you want to be sure.

 

There's more to upgrading a prebuilt than physical dimensions though. Depending on how old it is and what card you are planning on buying you also need to make sure the BIOS will support it and that your PSU won't collaps if the new card is more demanding than the old one.
