#28 Harassment in this community: It needs to stop. in TF2 General Discussion

This is honestly just sad at this point.

Visyou should not be so sensitive - this is the internet, you cannot expect it to be totally friendly at any given time.

Its much harder to ignore constant targeted harassment than a random person on the internet saying a slur. She did block him and call him out, and he kept on doing it for over a year.

Vistrigger a chain reaction from different leagues to speak up about this

How many times before people get it? I’ve seen a variation of this thread like 4 times and nothing ever changes.

ScratchhKAT isnt a real thing, its just some stupid joke to begin with, designed specifically to mess with you.

Is that honestly your defence? You don’t need to believe in it to be transphobic, it’s about the impact not the intent.

I was about to go through a point-by-point rebuttal but stopped midway cause I know people will just laugh and post memes here, and nothing will change. I’m just tired. Honestly just do what countries did with SA during apartheid to force them to change. It's a tiny community, it's pretty simple to do.

#12 Help me decide on a new monitor in Hardware

After a brief search on panelook and a couple other sites, the monitor you want won't be coming anytime soon. AUO does have 24.5" 1080p 144Hz and 240Hz IPS displays coming feb/march 2019. IMO it's better to have 1440p over 24 inches. For 27" you can go for Acer XV272U, VG271U, XB271HU. There's also the Aorus AD27QD which has been pretty hyped up but I don't know much about it. Shame that you can't really wait, both Samsung and LG showed some great monitors at CES but don't expect them before fall.

The GPU is just a stand-in for the upcoming GTX 1660Ti, also you can check if you want to reuse your case. Or if you keep your PC under your desk and don't care about noise you can save a little money, get the Silverstone RL06 case or the upcoming RL08 instead and drop the extra fan. PCP doesn't have it priced, but you can get the Corsair TXM series PSU for cheaper.

#99 RGL 6s league in TF2 General Discussion

In CSGO, pros complained about the ability to track enemies through smoke on the radar, and though the general majority was against it, the devs understood that they should defer to the pros because they know more about game balance. Within 24 hours of a prominent player voicing his opinion, they introduced a patch to change a mechanic that's been in the game since 2012.

As for RGL, while I do think testing out broken shit can give feedback on what must be tweaked, I don't believe any amount of tweaking will let 6 pyros vs 6 snipers ever be competitively viable. I think the rules of the game should be changed to adapt to our consideration.

#23 Decent GPU+CPU to get above 250 fps? in TF2 General Discussion
SetsulRyzen is not better than Intel for x264...Ryzen is significantly cheaper for the same number of threads

That's what I meant. I was specifically talking about 2600x and 8600k, not as a general statement. x264 is software encoding anyways, so hardware doesn't matter.

#19 Decent GPU+CPU to get above 250 fps? in TF2 General Discussion
aieraimagine using cpu encoding in 2018 + 1

NVENC is not a godsend. x264 has better quality at the limited bitrates for twitch streaming. TF2 barely uses 4 threads and there's little to no performance hit when using ryzen. Modern games might get a 5% performance drop, but ryzen is still better than intel for x264.

#12 #13 Here's a sample part list, but you should really post on the build thread and consult Setsul before making a decision. If you want to go Intel, you need to add 150+ for the higher cost for CPU, motherboard and cooler, and it's only justified if you decide to overclock. As I said before, there are better uses for your money when you already have 250+ fps. You can upgrade to a 2700x, get 16gb ram (unnecessary for games), get a 144hz IPS instead of TN/VA, mod your mouse (paracord/teflon skates), get a mechanical keyboard or just buy groceries.

#15 Decent GPU+CPU to get above 250 fps? in TF2 General Discussion

I would suggest getting the 2600X since you want to stream. You have the option of upgrading to ryzen 3000 down the line without upgrading your motherboard. 8600k performs pitifully if you want to stream. The rx580 is slightly better than the gtx 1060, but the difference is marginal so just buy whichever is cheaper at the time.

#11 Decent GPU+CPU to get above 250 fps? in TF2 General Discussion

The ryzen 3000 series will drop this summer, so you can decide if you want to wait that long as we get more news about it in the coming months. If you want to build a PC now, you can make a post on the build thread with your requirements and use case.

Every modern intel and ryzen processor can get over 250 fps, and unless you only play TF2 or have money to blow the GPU is far more important. You can play modern games at high graphics 1080p with gtx 1060/rx 580. Go for 1070ti or better only if you are playing at 1440p+. Prioritise getting a 144hz monitor, good headphones, mouse and keyboard in your budget, as they have a higher impact than a difference between 250 and 300 fps. Get a ryzen 2600 if you don't have 144hz, get i5 9600k if you do.

#10 Bad FPS New Processor/MOBO in Q/A Help

Tested out impact of RAM frequencies on ryzen. R5 2600 + RX 580. Benchmark results are on benchmark_test demo and mastercoms medium-low config. Radeon Version 18.12.2

3200 MHz: 4812 frames 16.847 seconds 285.63 fps ( 3.50 ms/f) 38.188 fps variability
2933 MHz: 4812 frames 18.437 seconds 260.99 fps ( 3.83 ms/f) 33.665 fps variability
2666 MHz: 4812 frames 19.041 seconds 252.72 fps ( 3.96 ms/f) 32.059 fps variability
2400 MHz: 4812 frames 19.595 seconds 245.57 fps ( 4.07 ms/f) 31.527 fps variability
2133 MHz: 4812 frames 20.594 seconds 233.65 fps ( 4.28 ms/f) 29.221 fps variability

The 2600 is on 3.4GHz, turbo to 3.9GHz, and 2700x goes from 3.7-4.3GHz. The biggest jump was from 2933 to 3200, so you should get a 3200 kit or a 3000 kit and OC it to 3200. 3600MHz kits are too costly for minimal performance bump. 2133MHz is pretty bad even for Intel.

Also, are you completely sure you removed all bloatware in windows? The last time I tested it had a 30+ fps difference. Did you disable all tracking when windows prompted you to give permission during the install process? Also there's lots of useless services like xbox and fax running in the background, you can find many guides for it. Enable high performance plan on windows. tf_use_match_hud has a large impact on fps. I can try out impact while streaming if you really need it, but unlike Intel, Ryzen barely has any fps loss while streaming

#7 Bad FPS New Processor/MOBO in Q/A Help

AMD generally likes fast ram, so that can be part of the problem, but it shouldn't go as low as 100 fps average. On an R5 2600, I went from 260-270 avg fps to 285, going from 3000 to 3666 MHz. However it doesn't scale linearly and you should see more improvement going from 2133 to 3000-3200 or so. See if you can overclock it, or borrow some from a friend for a few hours.

What fps do you get with -default -autoconfig, fully stock TF2?

#5 Bad FPS New Processor/MOBO in Q/A Help
pyxelizealso is there any chance you're not using your gpu and are using integrated graphics or something?

2700x doesn't have integrated graphics.

Edit: its possible he may have disabled SMT and the threads launch option can fuck it up. Otherwise just that launch option can't account for 200 fps delta.

#4 Bad FPS New Processor/MOBO in Q/A Help

What is your ram's rated speed? Did you plug your ram in the correct slots? Check if it's failing from prime95. Is your pc overheating? What is your case and fan setup? Check the temps while running cinebench. Did you reinstall the OS after changing processor? Did you change any settings in the uefi?

Launch options are useless, remove them. There's something clearly wrong, but its not AMD. You should be getting 200+ fps at all times.
