AMD + Freesync vs NVIDIA + G-sync GPU-Monitor COMBO

I am reading about next gen GPUs AMD vs NVIDIA as in techradar

https://www.techradar.com/news/computing-components/graphics-cards/amd-vs-nvidia-who-makes-the-best-graphics-cards-699480

And as AMD is better for
- Mining
- Vulkan
- LiGNUx

And specially

- FREESYNC

And as you play with a monitor

And there are TN ones as cheap a my Samsung U28E570DS

https://www.amazon.es/Samsung-U28E570DS-Flicker-Free-FreeSync-met%C3%A1lico/dp/B01LZ882YU

249 € - 19/11/2018 - for 28" 1ms and 4k

with this review

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/samsung-u28d590d-4k-ultra-hd-monitor,4033.html

That I use for gaming in 1080p as it does not get better with higher resolutions

as Linus and others explain very well







I know AMD is a little bit worse at general gaming tests with some price GPUs
but as it is better with cheap and good enough 1ms TN Freesync monitors

The combination AMD + Freesync is the winner for me.

Or the AMD Freesync COMBO wins.

And I actually own a Nvidia GTX750Ti that I bought for 100 € and…

The cheapest new laptop: EASY install any liGNUx as Manjaro on your old one

Your old laptop is already trash for you because it is very slow.

If you can recycle it to a computer that works, even if it is for giving it to charity, do it.

As liGNUx OSs desktops are much faster than MS Windows OS - MS WOS - probably you can delay to buy a new one, and years, and be "your own charity" saving money.

As EASY as to

1.- Download any Manjaro ISO plus Rufus or YUMI, and a 4Gb or bigger pendrive or SD or burn the ISO to a  DVD if you still use them.

2.- Start Rufus - or YUMI - to make a install media - pendrive installer - from the manjaro ISO or burn the ISO in a DVD

3.- Boot with the pendrive or the CD-ROM install media

3A.- Boot with the drive plugged and boot from it. IF NOT

3B.- Reboot and press they key to access your BIOS or UEFI - F2 or Supr usually - and setup the pendrive - or CD - to be the first media to boot - as EASY as to choose a MENU OPTION inside your BIOS or UEFI - and after that press the Save and (re)boot optiom

4.- Choose AUTOMATIC INSTAL…

COMO USAR EL MÓVIL COMO SUPLETORIO DEL FIJO (Movistar fibra, configuración SIP)

Si tienes FIBRA - el teléfono se conecta al router - puedes hacer que tu móvil sea además un supletorio del fijo, o configurarlo en tabletas o en el segundo móvil - sin tarifa plana - para usar la tarifa plana al menos a fijos, o móviles así configurados.

Aunque como es usando datos - WiFi o WiFi mas datos móviles - Ring Telegram o Whatsapp para los allegados seguirán siendo mejores.

Que conste que me ha costado ser pesado con el 1002 y pedir a la operadora que pregunte a alguien que sepa, tras larga conversación de besugos donde mi interlocutora que dijo ser ingeniera de telecomunicaciones - no me lo creí - cuando le pedí que me pusiera con un ingeniero pues no me entendía o hacía que no me entendía demasiado bien para ser una ingeniera instruida en el maltrato a la clientela espabilada,

Tuve que escuchar que NO SABE si Movistar lo permite, y que NO HAY SOPORTE, repetidas veces pidiendo que preguntase a alguien QUE SEPA, al final me han dado los datos, - copiados de su superior, al…

ARM laptops another great opportunity for LIGNUX desktop

MS failed with ARM phones because it's - not so - New Tech kernel is very slow compared with POSIX ones as Android's Linux and IOS?s FreeBSD.

ARM SoCs are working very well with LIGNUX in the devices that allow it as the Raspberry Pie and others.

Unfortunately no anti monopoly legislation ask for public drivers - no need to be FOSS - for LIGNUX as a requisite to be able to sell SoCs, and many SoCs have no LIGNUX drivers, including of course firmware.

But as Chrome OS is much faster and better than MS WOS and even more in ARM devices despite the last MS efforts, and they are close to have Crostini working with real time GPU virtualization with almost the same performance as bare metal one, probably the new good and cheap ARM laptops  will offer Chrome OS at least as a choice.

And then with that offer it will be easier for OEM and SoC malers to offer LIGNUX drivers, and probably some OEM would like to offer RHEL and or Ubuntu pre installed as DELL already do, probably because it…
