Check out this video to see how the rtx 2080ti fares in bfv with ray tracing enabled.

 

Couple of days and a couple of updates does wonders ;)

I can't seem to get consistent performance from BFV, been playing with the CPU overclock on my pc. I am still wanting to do the CPU upgrade (9900k,z390) so this would probably fix it as I only have 4 cores right now.

 

I was impressed by how they fixed the RTX performance in BFV just I think they should have got it to this stage first as they copped a lot of crap for it haha

Worst time of day too cos the internet slows down in the evenings.

screw that, go with aussie broadband and you shouldn't notice any slowdown during evenings. Another thing I've found is that during the evenings if you have lots of close neighbors the wi-fi airspace can become crowded.

Rtx is still ghey for the price but an improvement is better than the farken arse sucking garbage that was released. Still... you can't use it at 4k which has got to be the biggest kick to the dick yet, not that there's anything wrong with 1440p.

 

Haha I think I'll upgrade in 2021 or thereabouts at the rate this is going.

I got arse raped to the tune of nearly $300 to swap to Opballs from IInut and it'll likely be the same to switch to Aussie BB. Fark it, I will though, cos I've never had my internet line up and suck so many shiny balls, as it has since I moved to Opsack. Edit: Early termination fee is $500. Screw that sh*te!

Every carnt and his dog has got wireless nbn here cos that's all you can get in this dusthole of a town.

My 4790k is oc'd to 4.7 and it is using all "8" cores at around 80%.

just stick with what you've got as you were raving over the increase when you switched... just remember what it was like before the switch and remember how good it actually is :P

Having the internet drop out every day of the week, multiple times per day is reason enough to switch.

 

The speed will be better when I switch as it maintains 50/20 all day and isn't dropped to 25/12 in the evenings. 

 

I guess we'll see.

Puffwagon you there? don't swap. if you there, please reply, so I can tell you why.

 

 

 

@Puffwagon, a mate of mine that lives in dawsville/hallshead has been with IINET for a few years. He does FIFO and when he is in town, he has the internet working so and so. However every time he gets back from the mines, his internet is not working.He had to turn off his modem and then turn it back on. It got to a point lately that it was happening while he was in town as well and get fed up and IINET was not doing anything.

 

He recently decided to go with Aussie Broadband based on a few IT mates of his suggesting to go with them.

He churned over and as soon as his internet was up and running, he noticed that his connection had dropped from 44Mbps(iinet) to 3Mbps(ABB)

also his connection was disconnecting every 15 mins. he had to keep turning his modem off and back on.

 

He has been stuck in limbo land like this for 2 weeks now. ABB have contacted the NBN and they have been to the exchange and have run tests.

They say that everything checks out okay, but they know that there is an issue.

He has stopped playing games. he can't even apply for jobs lately through websites cause by the time the two finger typist is ready to submit the form, the net is down.

I suggest that you do not churn, but get the fukwits at OPBALLS to contact nbn and check out your line. 

 

If you getting drops in speed in the evening in comparison to the day, then it is OPBALLs that do not have enough bandwidth, then moving to Aussie Broadband will help with that.

if your on fixed wireless nbn you're screwed and I advise you to contact your local politician to explain why nbn thought rural users didn't want internet?

 

I drive through some places that they easily could have run fiber to each house and theyve gone and put a bloody dish on each roof.

optus are one of the worst providers on nbn ever. hows your nbn going MR 100mbit on FTTN Marco?

I have been stable for a while which is good, however I recently found out why connection drops down from 84Mbps to about 35Mbps.

The router I have, has been known to cause the issue. it is not IINET or the NBN CO.

so I am on a hunt for a replacement router. This one has served me well for a bit.

 

I might actually call you in a couple of minutes @skidxr6t

When I was complaining about it last night I did a fast.com test and it was going 33Mbit so maybe it's been sorted in that regard? It drops out all the farken time though which is annoying.

 

I'm on fixed wireless and there is fark all chance of any fibre here in the next 10 years. A town 18km away has got it but fark me though rite?!

 

In other news;

 

I oc'd my computer like a mofo today with a portable aircon sealed up with cardboard and tape. I managed 4.9Ghz on the cpu and 2164Mhz on the gpu!!! I went for 5Ghz and 2176Mhz but something shat itself, killed the bios again (it was flashing and had snow through it), killed the ethernet adapter and long story short had to remove the gpu, ram, nvme drive and get it all booted in different slots to get it working again... then set up the everyday oc again. Fml it took ages to fix lol.

 

I got a pretty decent score on timespy though :gamer: Haha 9420 :pimp:

Fair enough ay. I've been frigging around with mine for long enough now that I know where it's rock solid, where it'll go when pushed a bit and today, where it'll go with a bit of assistance. There's a lot of time invested there. 

 

I did a gpu bios mod recently which has helped massively. It'll game at 2114Mhz all day long on air even if it is a bit toasty in the mid 70s.

 

I also liquid metalled the gpu and the cpu which was a bit underwhelming all said and done.

Am tossing up doing that to the lappy.

 

Given the fact that none of them get stressed more than netflix lately though there's not much motivation :(

No need then ay. It barely affected my idle temps but did pull a lot off the top. 

 

What laptop are you thinking of doing?

 

A laptop is a lot more thermally constrained than a desktop so you might be pleasantly surprised, especially if you have ever run into throttling issues.

17", 4K, 7820 CPU, 1080 GPU Alienware A17r4

 

Gets a bit hot and throttles when I push it ;)

Give it a go mate. Do your research etc so the laptop and heatsinks don't get damaged and you should be sweet.

 

The stuff is a bit pricey but if it helps out then it'll be worth it. 

 

I found that the conductonaut kit I bought only really had enough in it to do the cpu and gpu. There is very little left over.

I prefer the safety of non-conductive thermal pastes personally but me and a mate both delidded our chips and his result with liquid metal was much better than the result I had with some thermal paste (I aint re-delidding my chip anytime soon though as temps are fine).

 

id say the laptop will still get rather hot afterwards but I haven't seen any that haven't benefited from having the thermal paste re-applied so give it a go if you're keen as puff said.

I just plugged in my AMD HD6870 gpu and am downloading drivers atm. The resolution is stuck at 1024x768 right now but should be good for some AAA title 1440p goodness any moment.

 

Also apparently there is something you can do where you use an nvidia card to drive the game and an amd card to output it so I can use freesync on my monitor. I'll have to look that up.

Well if anyone cared I got 2 fps on the bf5 load screen and it wouldn't go further as it wouldn't let me click on the update thingo. Other games wouldn't load due to no dx12 or not enough gpu ram. It still horked out youtoob like a champ as you'd expect for 2xdp outputs.

 

I guess I should have sold it for $50 when I had the chance 4 years ago.
