In Topic: is 2070 RTX worth it?

Yesterday, 07:09 AM

Both JayzTwoCents and Gamers Nexus say the 2070 is at a better price point than the 2080.

Does it have the 2080 power? No, Can it SLI? No

But for those on a budget is a very well priced card and works very well.

Haven't written up a proper news item on it yet (busy with AC Odyssey) but Microsoft has pulled the update until they can fix it:

Known issues updating to Windows 10, version 1809

Wow!!!!!!!! Nice move MS - appreciate the action - if true.............

Yes, this phenon has been widely reported. In past Win 10 updates I have had my Win 7 games , MS Office and Documents trashed. Part of the problem is also that Defender is always installed even thought I removed it. Defender is notorious for stopping old programs from loading. I have the app to reload Win 7 games and the MS Office installer + the toolkit to reset the key. I am waiting to see how bad it gets. LOL

In Topic: Windows 10 - Internet Explorer Startup on Boot - STOP IT!

Programs can run even if it is not in the Startup folder. Especially when you have the program running but minimized and take down Windows without closing the active program. Win 10 will start that program back up when you boot.

 

In the Registry - regedit -
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

These are the programs that Win 10 will start on boot.

Great review Frank. Appreciate your efforts.

I will be interested to see Frank's performance test of the folding.

Looking forward to it. I do not think you will see much defference.

 

If you believe JayZTwoCents and Gamers Nexis test results then you are not going to get much improvement considering the cost of the 2080. They were, of course, testing gaming and not other platforms like folding or everyday business use. Their conclusion is that there is not enough bang for the buck so users should wait for the prices to come down.
