  • Regarding Irfanview, my understanding is that it doesn’t do color management by default. I believe it needs to have a specific plugin installed and a checkbox in its options ticked in order for ...
  • Taking a quick look at the user guide for your monitor, it appears that it is an HDR-capable display with specific controls for turning its HDR mode(s) on and off. Just to be certain everything is ...
  • According to the link below, Chrome has…or maybe had …a setting available in the preferences file that would kill the Quick Launch shortcut creation. Link is for Chromium but I saw old mentions of ...
  • FWIW check the "High speed negotiation" section at the article below. To me it kind of looks like the negotiation might take place pretty low down in the USB protocol stack. The info is a good bit ...
  • Total knee-jerk reaction here, but I would guess that for starters the M.2 connector is probably not designed to withstand anywhere near the same quantity of physical insertion/removal cycles as ...
  • I can confirm that I used my Win 10 Pro retail license key to activate my current Win 11 Pro build. A recent Ars Technica article also stated bluntly that to date Win 10 keys have been  ...
  • From what I’m seeing, the USB-IF’s standards for USB-C have specific criteria within which the USB-C connector must include an “E-Marker” chip within the connector itself. This chip apparently ...
  • Replied in What GPU?
    For the sake of completeness, what GPU are you using? I'm very much assuming you have a seperate discrete GPU since the 5600x does not have an onboard iGPU.
  • GPU-Z is one of those utilities that you might find being advertised for download at multiple locations. To the best of my knowledge, the app is created by the team from the site TechPowerUp and ...
  • From my perspective, the HW-Info screenshots you posted kind of make it look like your GPU is throttling based on cooling capacity and/or power draw. The cooler on that Quadro card does not seem to ...
  • I like the T-cam as well. I just wish they'd pull in the reins on the early 2000's video game style graphics they've been overylaying on that view.

  • While you did say maxing out the TV’s capabilities, I personally don’t see much point in worrying about 120 Hz support if you do not game on it. To me 4K/60 + HDR would seem to be the logical goal ...
  • I’d bet most anything that the plain white cable actually isn’t bad or faulty. It’s probably just built to a significantly lower spec than the black cable. Thanks to the self-serving idiots at the ...
  • We all have our own likes and priorities I guess, but wanting smooth footage from an in-helmet driver’s eye perspective just seems odd to me. It’s like saying you want to see what the drivers are...

  • Replied in PC Part Picker
    Most mentions of PC Part Picker are targeted at selecting components or checking compatibility between them. But where cases are concerned, don’t forget that the site also offers extensive ...
  • Can you confirm where specifically in drive C you tried to paste the test BMP file? Was it the “Pictures” folder for your username or some other folder? Regardless, I would definitely suggest ...
  • I can only speak for myself here, but it’s unclear to me what your actual display situation is. You mention your laptop having 1920x1200 resolution running at 1920x1080. That’s clear. But in the ...
  • It’s been a while since I had any need to delve into it, but the driver store is definitely among the most opaque portions of Windows I’ve ever attempted to deal with. In my case I think it was in ...
  • Anyone else recently finding that Microsoft is placing a shortcut for Edge on the desktop for all users? I’m guessing this is taking place when Edge is getting updated, but I don’t know for sure ...
  • Secure Boot may or may not need to be active to install Windows 11. I don’t know for sure. The capability of Secure Boot being present in the UEFI firmware is very much listed by Microsoft as a ...
