  • What exactly does "work with Affinity Photo" mean to you?
  • Yes, iGPU performance improves. With some searching, you can find a variety of test/graphs. Here's one link that shows the progression: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/intel-core-i9-11900k-pr ...
  • I have not tried GIMP.  I am going to try DarkTable though for RAW editing (unhappy with LR subscription and Capture One price increases).
  • It's time to check out Affinity Photo 2. Quite a bit more capable than CS2, very reasonably priced, great value for your money and not subscription.  I replaced my copy of CS6 with Affinity Photo ...
  • Laptops are so much more of a challenged heat environment than desktops, even gaming laptops. While laptops can occasionally boost to speeds near what desktops can do, they simply can't maintain ...
  • This ASUS page lists their Z690 boards that support Windows 11 (by default). It shows ALL of them supporting it by default. It doesn't say what BIOS version is required for that default support. Th ...
  • No, they were not ASUS (one ASRock, one MSI). If you have any issues installing Windows 11, you can manually enable TPM in the BIOS.  But, I still think it would be foolish for ASUS to advertise ...
  • I'd be surprised if anyone was advertising a motherboard as Windows 11 compatible and then not enabling TPM by default. That's just a recipe for either product returns or support issues when ...
  • Note that your motherboard lists Windows 11 compatible in the marketing materials which it could not do if it needed additional hardware in order to install Windows 11 on it. And, in the doc for ...
  • Your Z790 motherboard will already be TPM compliant.  You will not need anything additional.
  • If you're situation is such that you are so close to your flat screen and it has so much light falloff due to the viewing angle that the sides of the screen are not an even brightness, then you ...
  • My point stands.  What Adobe is telling us is absolutely worthless for the enthusiast who wants a system that LR will perform well on with good responsiveness for sliders and no meaningful delays ...
  • Adobe should be ashamed of how useless their advice above is.  First off, nobody wants to buy or build a system with minimum graphics processor requirements.  An iGPU is probably actually the real ...
  • That isn't really the point of what's being posted here.   If viewing of the monitor is being degraded because of the viewing angle of incidence to the edges, then the monitor is inaccurately portr ...
  • If you already have a great F-mount lens for your application, there's absolutely no reason to fear using the adapter with it on a Z-body. From the optical point of view, the adaptor is just a ...
  • This still isn't clear. Are you planning to use the new NVME drive as a backup drive? Or are you replacing some existing drive? I don't understand what backup has to do with anything in your ...
  • I've never heard that a C: NVME drive must have built-in DRAM cache.  The OS already does read caching for you which is the majority of its disk operations and it will allocate memory for read ...
  • With C1, you could always buy a perpetual license when you exit the subscription.  That's always been a choice.  The difference now is that if you've been a subscriber for awhile, you get a ...
  • Replied in For hobby?
    The tests I've seen show very few applications that show more than a few percentage points difference with DDR5 vs. DDR4 and it is still significantly more expensive than DDR4 (though getting more ...
  • FYI, that Tom's Hardware review isn't the same piece of hardware in the amazon link. The review is about a PCIe3 product which I presume is a prior version and the Amazon link is about a PCIe4 drive. ...
