    AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution

    ATI was bought by AMD. They have a new one under 400 when Nv has the 2000 dollar one. 6 core Intel on my desk vs 2 core AMD on a new build. Intel was winning in core benchmarking. But in the end total AMD was only 12 points behind. The AMD 3000g APU would load a game and play. Intel would just...

    VirtualBox VM x86_64.iso OS scroll very jumpy

    All my lappy's are not happy with the tracpad. But if you use double fingers it scrolls smoother. If I am just turning on and updating, whether Mint, Peppermint or MX, I use pad. If I am actually doing things I use a mouse. On desk a regular mouse normally, and also have a little travel mouse...

    What is your favorite pi OS

    I tend to take Wiindows laptops and remove that and install Linux. Why would I mess up a perfectly good PI with bloated MS?

    I was never an nV fan. Always hed better luck with (ATI) AMD. ATI was always better with Linux.

    Your PC Won’t Support Windows 11? Maybe It’s Time to Try Linux

    So you have to have a TPM chip or be able to enable it in Bios. But you may not even have a CPU that is new enough. Someone made a comment about the centered Menu, "If I wanted it to look like Mac, I will just buy a Mac." It will be able to run Android apps, and looks like it belongs on a...
