  1. I find it a bit 'disturbing' seeing a(nother) former LucasArts' namesake attached. Outlaws (1997 video game) - Wikipedia EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG NtM, this has all the hallmarks of "Modern Audience, Western Developer" https://www.neogaf.com/threads/star-wars-outlaws-main-character-already-hit-with-criticism-due-to-ubisoft-changing-actress-apperance.1669385/ Hot dang! Girlboss Protagonist is just plain nasty lookin'. I feel bad for the model; she's pretty. Even, Horizon's Girlboss player character looks more 'put together'
  2. Thing is, the GRE is faster, generally (in rasterization) and does RT 'fine' w/ XeSS or FSR Scaling (or lower Native-res. 1080p 144hz, here)
  3. "Revised" uArch in the APUs, makes sense. I do wonder if we'll see a Navi 3x dGPU revision, though. (Ala RX 590) ROCm 5.6 has listings for RX 7950XT/X, etc. So, maybe it is in the cards? AMD Lists Radeon RX 7950 XTX, Other Unreleased Graphics Cards | Tom's Hardware WWW.TOMSHARDWARE.COM AMD's ROCm 5.6 lists numerous unannounced Radeon RX 7000-series graphics cards.
  4. mmmhmmmm.... No errors on the 7900GRE this whole time, either. Only the MI25s and the R5 5600 'spat out' bad WUs at any point. (and that'd been corrected yesterday) At this point, I'm assuming my Name and CodeKey is 'cursed' (low-reliability listed?) Next comp, I'll be switching to my other 'handle' of LRK-GT, and use a diff. email for a fresh codekey.
  5. Driver Updates - Unlocked VRAM OCing https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/amd-24-3-1-drivers-unlock-rx-7900-gre-memory-oc-limits-additional-performance-boost-tested.320715/ AMD's latest 24.3.1s have lifted the VRAM OC limits for the GRE, and most-all cards will clock 2500-2600MHz+ https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/amd-radeon-rx-7000-series/amd-radeon-rx-7900-series/amd-radeon-rx-7900-gre Radeon.ID / AmernimeZone 24.3.1 drivers just* released. https://sourceforge.net/projects/radeon-id-distribution/files/Release Polaris-Vega-Navi/WHQL-R-ID-Software-Hybrid-24.3.1-Win10-Win11-PolarisVegaNavi-Nebula.exe/download (*I opened the page to check if they'd been released, <1min after posting. Dunno how I did that)
  6. Funny they mention specifically using less VRAM; nVidia's been skimping us for awhile. Leaves me wondering if even Devs/Studios have been wanting more VRAM/memory efficiency, too. 'Love the concept. AMD's SSG was attempting similar, years ago (no DXR, ofc) At the least, I'm looking forward to more broad use of DirectStorage.
  7. A donated MI25 w/ bad HBM made a bunch of bad WUs. My fault for not 'generically' folding. 1st thing I did was enter my codekey, name, and team. Ended up submitting at least 4-6 bad WUs. Oops. -What I deserve for not thinking ahead lol.
  8. Working on bringing 3x MI25s online in my 'Media Reclaimer' build. I'd take pics, but it's a bit too LabRat even for LabRat there are former mining risers and PSUs involved, with an open side panel, and 2x MI25s sitting on top... Edit: Finally, they're operational. ~100W ea. + the R5 5600 in that machine.
  9. Fixed. Yes, it was the driver. Apparently AMD 1st Party Adrenaline doesn't equip-enable OpenCL. Ended up using this driver package (after clean uninstall w/ DDU) https://www.amd.com/en/developer/resources/rocm-hub/eula/licenses.html?filename=AMD-Software-PRO-Edition-23.Q4-Win10-Win11-For-HIP.exe
  10. Correct. Though, now I'm getting a 'loop' of ready->dowload0->ready->download I've got errands away from home to go run. If it hasn't sorted itself by the time I'm back, I'll fix it then. 23:34:41:WU02:FS01:0x23:Attempting to create OpenCL context: 23:34:41:WU02:FS01:0x23: Configuring platform OpenCL 23:34:41:WU02:FS01:0x23:Failed to create OpenCL context: 23:34:41:WU02:FS01:0x23:No compatible OpenCL platform is available 23:34:41:WU02:FS01:0x23:ERROR:125: Failed to create a GPU-enabled OpenMM Context. Guessing the Adrenaline driver is unhappy/missing ROCm. Will fix on return.
  11. Anything look amiss? (No CPU folding, it *cooks* my 5800x3d lol)
  12. Countdown pulled up on secondary screen :D Haven't been feeling well but, will be contributing AT LEAST my 7900GRE (power detuned). Will have an MI25 or 2 going by end of day too (hopefully).
  13. Media Alert: IBM Applauds EU Parliament's Approval of the EU AI Act NEWSROOM.IBM.COM IBM applauds the EU Parliament's decision to adopt the EU AI Act, a significant milestone in establishing responsible AI regulation in the European Union. Interesting Times...
  14. I'm only on Win11 because of my last GPU setup. 11 was the only reliable way to get AFMF from a 6500XT w/ rendering from a Vega. I know I have a 'dirty install' @ this point and had intended to do a clean single-OS reinstall after my old new case comes in. If you need Windows-compatibility, I highly-recommend Win10 Ent IoT LTSC. -It's what I'll be going back to, now that I'm on a single-card (again). https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/a-multi-boot-adventure-windows-10-x64-enterprise-iot-ltsc-21h2.314847/ Mainstream support until January 12, 2027 and extended support until January 13, 2032.
  15. Just got done spending over 4 hours troubleshooting GPU, Power, fTPM, NVME HMB, etc. I was having major stuttering in games like Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, and HBS'BattleTech. 'thought it was a bad PCI-E 8-pin power cable (again) but, no. So, After a bunch of (mostly pointless) troubleshooting, I uninstalled the Update that installed earlier today. Suddenly 'all better'. KB in question: March 12, 2024—KB5035853 (OS Builds 22621.3296 and 22631.3296) - Microsoft Support SUPPORT.MICROSOFT.COM Another person w/ (suspecting) same issue: Anyone noticing U41 FPS issues? Unstable frame rates? Stuttering? (Possibly due to Windows patch...) FORUMS.ELDERSCROLLSONLINE.COM Is anyone else experiencing stuttering or general instability in frame rates with Update 41? My sys specs:
  16. I'd personally prefer the higher CFM of the AUB912VHs. Cumlatively, they're moving more air. (4x31=122CFM | 3x68=204CFM) Then again, I'm the kinda person that puts a 9CR0812P8S03 +12V 5.5A dual-motor SanAce80, on an MI25. (loudest fan I've yet had the 'pleasure' of hearing 1st-hand.)
  17. Edit: The 70mm AUB0712VH appears to be 31CFM (but, I cannot find a 1st-party datasheet) The 92mm AUB0912VH is ~68CFM
  18. :doh: The image might've corrupted; prolly my VPN+network load. Sorry about that. Yes. As you explain(ed) it, 'texture streaming issues' makes sense. After you mentioned that, I was reminded of Id's RAGE. IIRC, you cannot 'configure' over 1200mv, that's correct. As you've seen, certain vBIOS may have the LC V64/FE / 300W-MI25 1250mv max powerstate. TBQH, I'm still impressed this card was non-functional from soap residue not long ago, and now is running like a champ.
  19. Not *quite* stable: Dang close tho. (and, pretty solid 60FPS w/ the settings in Radeon Settings) Since your temps looks *fantastic*, maybe let 'er have a lil more vCore?
  20. EHW Gonzo Journalist Update: It's not *just* Windows support; Win10x86 and Linux will not save your old games. @pio has tested Steam on Linux (Kubuntu), using a Socket 939 Dual-Core Opteron 180 CPU. Unfortunately, just like Windows 8.1-> 64-bit, the Steam Client itself now requires "CMPXCHG16B" (as well as x86-64/AMD64 and SSE3). In addition to these new onerous hardware requirements, Valve cannot even properly prompt the user to resolve the issue! Valve's error message upon attempting to open the client reads as follows: This is notable, due to the fact @pio was using an AMD Opteron CPU at time of receiving the error. Even Valve Software is completely and utterly ignorant and incompetent in the impact and scope of this change to its userbase. Sadly, this means that all games sold on Steam that were compatible w/ systems @ time of sale, are now no longer compatible with their listed system requirements. In my objective opinion, this change from Valve Software constitutes damages to the longest-time and Core customer base of Valve Software's Steam digital distribution platform. Many of us have hundreds of dollars in games, purchased-during and ran-on the hardware listed in the system requirements. This is easily the most anti-consumer move from Valve Software, we've seen yet. Contractual Purchases have been violated, and the damages are easily-defined. I personally look forward to any Legal Action regarding this completely unnecessary and burdensome scenario, precipitated entirely by Valve Software. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Possible* band-aid workaround for Linux users: Steam not run.

  21. AMD Radeon RX 7900 GRE 16GB GDDR6 "The X800 GTO of 2024" Specifications: Reviews: 'At A Glance' AIB Partner Comparison: (Not all retail-available models represented) LabRat's Personal Gallery:
  22. In, LabRat Okay so, I've got 2 weeks to get my F@H machine into a chassis and stabilized. Can Do!
  23. If money allowed/allows (in the future): IMO, a Ryzen APU - based Framework Laptop would be the closest to a 'proper' desktop replacement. Alternatively (and personally), I've always been attracted to the idea of having a 'main desktop' and then a Ruggedized (older-generation) laptop to take with me *anywhere* [or, even leave (hidden) in my car] However, a decent smartphone or older phablet can almost 'stand-in' for those needs. IMO, ARM-Android is so prolific, just about any non-x86_64-exclusive 'function' of a laptop, can be sub'd-in by a 'mobile' device.
  24. Looks like this will be (again) on my list of games to play, while waiting on STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl and MW5: Clans.
  25. I run too much 'old stuff' for Intel's GPU to be appropriate. Intel has precisely 0 motivation to support and improve DX9 and DX10/10.1 performance; and I'm okay with that. Just, it makes the entire uArch-series a non-starter, for me. It is a major bummer that AMD 'nuked' the OCing tools. However, I can see the 'technical excuse(s)', and can empathize (to a degree). Basically, AMD cannot allow another Radeon VII debacle. I wholeheartedly believe end-users should be allowed to do whatever they wish with their owned hardware. However, it's a matter of modern utility and practicality to *not* allow proliferation of such tools. IMHO: The move towards le Reddit-tier 'tech-knowledge sharing/advice' has precipitated this. If AMD lets their users use things like MPT, people will unwittingly spread (drastically) lifespan-shortening 'advice'; harming AMD's product/brand image and giving nVidia and Intel 'an opening' for marketing/attacks. FFS, we live in a world where criminal social media trends are blamed on the manufacturer of the target(s), not the actual criminals. tl;dr: AMD is being practical, in an insane world. Edit: Looks like AMD's open-source drivers on Linux, got a patch to enable legacy Overdrive API support on Navi3x? AMD Wires Up OverDrive Overclocking For Newer RDNA3 GPUs On Linux WWW.PHORONIX.COM For those interested in GPU overclocking, AMD has posted the patches for implementing the 'legacy' OverDrive overclocking infrastructure for newer SMU13-based Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards with the...
