Been playing a few games lately, basically Fallout 4 & Skyrim nothing real new but some of my favorites so gave Horizon Zero Dawn a go. Overall much impressed even though I don't like 3rd person games. Judging from the reviews got some PC port problems but personally not having problems after about 4 hours of playing on the hardware I'm using. Game has a built in bench that I tested at game default for my hardware and at the highest preset for 1080, which are shown below. I'll do some 2K results in the next couple of weeks but 4K ain't going to happen. If I was 20 again I might be interested in better sound and video but at my age you reach a point where you're not one of the 5 or 10 percent that actually notice it. Although we can argue the last statement.
Default settings applied by the game.

zila1: If you liked that mouse that much another type or brand may not suit you. If you can find another one, I would get it. Maybe two more if you can swing it and put one away.

ShrimpBrime: Any suggestions, or should I just get another of the same mouse? I did get a lot of years from it....

ShrimpBrime: I dislike my new mouse. Need suggestions. Was spoiled for a long time with a Razor mamba tournament edition. The mouse wheel has 4 buttons on it's own, I liked the side to side page scroll feature it had. The lazer wigz out occasionally.

antinomy: So if you lack of sex, VIA's here to help you

antinomy: Nano has twice performance for same clocks against the older C7. But compatibility is a bitch. Bench(f**n)mate won't run on it, W10 didn't run too (maybe there is some build that will), some benchmarks are finicky about VIAs.

antinomy: The architecture has changed a few times. C3 is like the stone age. Superseeded by C7. Don't remember about IPC but the bus changed from P6 arch (Pentium 2/3) to quad-pumped (Pentium 4/Core2). Then it has been replaced by Isaiah architecture (VIA Nano).

austin86: yeah the c3 was a slow chip, some of the zhaoxin CPUs use VIA architecture too.

Macsbeach98: And dont go much better either

Mr.Scott: I have a few VIA's. Not much different than PIII's.

ShrimpBrime: No, haven't gotten into VIA processors actually. Figure try and recoup the spending on the board even though I really like it.

austin86: Have you ever played with VIA CPUs? they have some very low TDP. many are sub 20w
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:33 GMT -5
austin86: Cool idea. the b660 is a good chipset albeit a little simple. I do have a Asus csm board so my experience could be gimped.
Aug 3, 2022 8:30:06 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Try to build a sub 100w system. Then maybe sell it. Just a thought at this point. Bit have a B660-I it would work perfect with.

austin86: I almost got one of the faster Pentium's, what will you be using it for?
Aug 2, 2022 9:05:30 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: I was thinking of building with a celeron or Pentium gold. Like 59 bucks for a dual core lga 1700
Aug 1, 2022 20:25:13 GMT -5
austin86: I got my 12100f on ebay for about 96 dolors before tax/shipping. its a lot of CPU for the price
Aug 1, 2022 8:09:56 GMT -5
ShrimpBrime: Celeron and Petium gold are both under 100 bucks. 12th gen.

george: my workshop 5600G been really rock solid, not one hick-up so far, pulls good. wife's old i3 still pulls good also, though I do not have experience of the newer i3's though.

ShrimpBrime: the kids 1st and 2nd get chips to 5000 series. APU for my Daughter I think and 5600X for my youngest son.
