It's always been like that, but they are in fact not drivers.
Extract the intel chipset utility, look at the inf for any relevant 'driver' and...
There is no such thing as chipset drivers.
What you are referring to is an inf installer, which basically means it correctly names every device...
Always update drivers for security reasons if nothing else.
You mean Killing floor 1 right?
KF2 is pretty well optimized.
And how do you go about testing that?
Artificially limiting CPU performance by disabling cores?
That's not realistic nor does it make sense to test.
DX11 is a stuttering mess but not DX12.
Works pretty good for me in DX12 mode.
Hope you aren't trying to run all ULTRA on that system.
This is one of the few times I've been affected by a windows bug.
Setup the laptop on 1903h and it updated to this latest version.
Unless you are having real problems, I suggest you ignore benchmarks.
I've got well over a 1000 hours in the game and there are no problems with that section for me or my buddies i used to play with.
If you have an Intel system with latest bios since then, you may be affected by the microcode updates to protect against things like spectre/meltdown.
Not without editing the BIOS; minimum fan speed is set by it.
Be warned that some fans won't operate if they are too low if you decide to go that...
Those fans aren't too good performance wise.
I know you wanted RGB but something like noctua NF-A12 would be much quieter and much better...
That does not matter.
Early NAND had the chance of losing retained data when stored over a couple years without being powered on.
Newer NAND is...
Inrush current happens occurs for only a few milliseconds, besides this isn't 1998.
Components are built to handle/reduce inrush current effects....
Not true in the slightest when quality components are used.
In fact, hardware dies faster when coupled with cheap components like a power supply....
Unofficial spec limit for 8pin EPS is 336w, a high quality motherboard can in fact draw more than that if BIOS is configured to do so.
There is no...
A single 8pin is more than sufficient for an OCd 9900k
2080Ti or keep what you have
Generally pre-applied stuff is at most 3-5 w/mk but you can't know for sure.
