Quote from: bertie97 on August 02, 2016, 07:23:15 AMSo far I don't like the win10 network & app function embedding esp with the new batch of ransomware doing the rounds. I've seen 2 systems completely screwed & no way to recover without paying up or wiping. Clearly there are still a lot of backdoors & workarounds that just aren't being covered. CryptoDrop sounds like it might help...Virtualization seems like a better solution with a VM just for the internet etc. But W10 doesn't like stuff like a virtual desktop apparently
QuoteThis ransomware stuff is just another form of malware, so the same practices apply - Don't download/run things unless you are *certain* you trust the source.
Quote from: bertie97 on August 09, 2016, 10:25:38 AMThanks for the replies JC.I have yet to be convinced on W10. Some things seem OK but http://www.techrepublic.com/article/windows-10-anniversary-update-watch-out-for-these-nasty-surprises/?ftag=TRE684d531&bhid=19840393881837288397181766470674 (http://www.techrepublic.com/article/windows-10-anniversary-update-watch-out-for-these-nasty-surprises/?ftag=TRE684d531&bhid=19840393881837288397181766470674)--theres still aggravation to be had! I esp don't like the way things like run & the old control panel & MMC commands seem to have been sidetracked. OK not everyone looks at that stuff often but if you want to tweak something & you are used to typing xxxx.msc in the run box - it now often just slaps me in the face They really want the data mining to be front & centre.Really don't like the new double qty of ads thing either. Aren't we bombarded enough?I notice that you cannot fully disable the apps side either as it will kill the start button. I have installed 1 game on w10 so far & it runs fine, beyond that I'm digging around & trying to break stuff. I am not surrendering my w7 yet tho!
QuoteI don't use Edge at all, for maybe last ditch backup (use IE11 more), I have not noticed any timer requests.
QuoteI never run max settings, I find in many games ultra doesn't give any HQ that I would notice while I am moving around, so I don't set things up for best quality more usable quality, at least what a 970 can handle at 1600x1200.
Quote from: BenYeeHua on August 11, 2016, 04:23:37 AMYup, the feature is a lot, but it is unstable for new feature, so it is indeed beta. At least the old feature is not broken, and the IE has added some new feature from Edge too. Yup, no flash, no issues. Ya, the max quality is unstable, it is there because that's artist want to show you how they designed their game, and that's how it should be look like, but you will feel a lot stutter if your CPU is not strong enough. This should be change a lot after many games start supporting DX12, and, using it correctly.
QuoteYeh, right now most Dx12 games are ports from Xbox, not ground up dx12/vulkan for PC.
QuoteI think both those low level API will help low to mid range CPU even more, you can see it now with dx12, but you don't see it mentioned much as the combo is low end CPU with high end GPU, were this shows the most.Not a realistic user system really.
QuoteThe whole dissimilar multi GPU support I am not sure on, might be more trouble than its worth except maybe Intel integrated+ dGPU, where integrated is doing some post processing rendering affects.
QuoteAMD +Nvidia GPU doesn't sound to be high% user base as you need both drivers installed, which to me is asking for trouble.
