More info here: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/samsung/odyssey-g5-g51c-s27cg51 It's pretty average even for VA standards. I suppose…

I have the 8845HS version and it gets about 5-6 hours with general usage, 100% screen brightness, performance mode. In silent mode you…

The BIOS says there is a second drive but I've not opened mine (8845HS version).

Definitely improved my temps by quite a bit upgrading from an NH-D14. It was 14 years old though.

780M is so good that it makes the 3050 6GB look a bit redundant. Dedicated VRAM is nice though.
18/05/2024 - 10:56
I mean it's just a drop in upgrade (maybe a BIOS update) and you're getting a huge increase to gaming performance, much better single core…

If you don't mind going AMD and willing to pay an extra $400, there's this:…

Even better grab a 2nd hand GPU like the 5700 XT for $200~ which will outperform the 6600.
05/05/2024 - 14:39
Check your motherboard page and download/update the BIOS. If you bought the motherboard back when the 2600 came out then it definitely…

5950X literally sips power compared to Intel.
28/04/2024 - 15:50
The average doesn't tell the whole story. The 5800X3D can be +20% faster in some games. 5950X is a decent gaming CPU though, Zen 3 saw…
28/04/2024 - 15:49
5950X has 16 cores and 32 threads. Absolutely demolishes the 12600KF in multi core.

Don't compromise on the screen. $200 well and truly justifies the OLED screen but you can probably get cheaper alternatives which still…

Is one of your monitors high refresh and free sync? Possibly disabling free sync may help. It can force AMD hardware to run at high clocks…

The 8645HS has the 760M. I'm using the 8845HS and it says 780M.
16/04/2024 - 19:16
With the 780M being fairly close to a 3050 in performance, it's a pretty pointless combo. Only advantage is dedicated GDDR6 and CUDA (and…

50% is the best case scenario too. Commonly only 10-20% faster which at 30-40fps is almost indistinguishable.
16/04/2024 - 12:27
It won't have any problem running Terraria even at 2880x1800. The 8845HS version has a 780M which is the most powerful integrated graphics…

The Acer Swift Go would fit your requirements. 8845HS, 2.8k 90Hz OLED, 14", good build quality. $1.3k at Officeworks.
12/04/2024 - 19:28
I use a screen saver and it goes to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity. Takes about 5 seconds to turn back on from a cold boot. Also, you…

It still boots faster than my dedicated computer monitor even without the LGTV companion.
11/04/2024 - 12:43
Yeah. I can test a Lenovo charger with less wattage. How long till yours locked up?
10/04/2024 - 12:23
What temps? I'm using balanced. Saw no performance difference on performance mode. I just ran a few rounds of Cinebench 23 on battery and…
09/04/2024 - 19:41
I noticed that too. It's the little rubber things on the edge of the lid.
09/04/2024 - 19:30
Fortunately the settings seem fairly generic and you can do them manually. Hide the taskbar, set a screensaver, make windows transparent,…
09/04/2024 - 19:30
Do you have any OLED care settings in Acer Sense? I just reinstalled Windows and installed the application on the support page but the…
07/04/2024 - 15:45
I'm paranoid and I like the feeling of starting fresh with a clean machine. Only takes an hour to do nowadays, just need to grab the…
