Its March 2023 - Whats new?

Unread post by element6 »

Any news out there? How are your systems?

Im running my I5-12th gen with Intel ARC770GPU and doing some casual gaming. Correction, my daughter uses it for Roblox gaming.

her:"What is FPS?"
me: "First person Shooter....what are you playing?"

after some context,

me: "Frames per Second"
her: "Im running Roblox at maximum. Its really cool!"
me: "You see that blue light inside, thats what is doing it.".

hahaha. that's awesome.

my Kids are still doing well Son (15) and Daughter (13), Daughter (17months).. the youngest is just now starting to stand on her own. took 2 brave steps yesterday...

Work is nuts. putting in a lot of hours to fix/recover a few projects. We'll get there...

For the systems, we have a few decent builds here in the house. Few intels but mainly AMDs..

in my old CoolerMaster HAF X case
Mix of Roblox, Minecraft and actual games
24" 1080P 75hz display

R7-1800x Running Stock Clocks with Noctua NH-15D big cooler
Asus Strix 1080Ti - Stock Cooler - repasted

Sniper Elite, Division 2, Minecraft with the kids, Insurgency (including Sandstorm), Metro and anything else I want to thhrow at this...
monitor is an 27" Asus 165hz 1440p unit I got 5-6 years ago. looking to upgrade to 32" 4K with HDR..

Kids builds were done a few years ago.. mine was done nearly 2 years ago...

I have a few intel rigs Folding (2060, 2080 Super, EVGA FTW3 3090 and just acquired an nVidia 2080Ti to add to the folding pool) pulling on average 12Mil ppd...

whem I'm home and tune in the 3080, I'll pull 16mil ppd and with the 2080Ti I can hit just over 20mil ppd.. nuts to see numbers like that cause I remember running my GTX580 and getting 45k ppd and thought that was awesome...

Beyond that it's laptops and a few surface tablets.

I still have a lot of my benching gear... just don't have time for it.
