[Re: config.sys de Shohei Yamada]Sachiru Gravo –PC Watch

Hardware and software are the two wheels of a computing device. No matter which one is missing, computing will not work. Likewise, the CPU and the GPU are two wheels. How much processing performance of this GPU is enough? I want to know the saturation point.

The reality that you don’t feel sluggish because the way you use your PC doesn’t change

Intel launched a series of new products with Arc family technology as A-series as cutting-edge creative graphics. With the so-called external graphics, mobile SoCs will be available on the same day and desktop expansion cards will be available this year, i.e. in early summer 2022.

Unless the graphics on the PC are used for gaming, mining and encoding for creative purposes, the idea that integrated graphics with an integrated processor is sufficient, not, the future of PCs . Given how it’s used, there are two ways to think that higher performance is needed because performance is still insufficient.

Of course, Intel is thinking about the latter, and that advanced communication in virtual space in the future will become more and more important in the post-corona world, and advanced graphics processing performance is expected to make a great contribution to this.

Personally, I use Windows normally, and looking at the GPU usage in the Task Manager performance graph, it looks like even though I’m using that power, it looks like the integrated graphics are enough.

Of course, you can see how it supports processing in scenes like browser drawing, various video playback, photo data development and video encoding, and the GPU performs for rich GUI even in the daily operations.

Being able to work comfortably is also an important factor in the performance utilization of a PC. However, in many situations the process terminates instantly and doesn’t seem to keep occupying the GPU. It would be a problem if it wasn’t there, but to be honest, I don’t need something that good.

If you keep saying it too much, you might think the way you use your PC hasn’t changed in about 10 years, and you’re skeptical of yourself. As a member of society who uses a PC as a tool, I wonder if that’s okay.

However, looking at NVIDIA’s announcement of GTC 2022 the other day, I really see the future, and the day I can see such things, I want GPU vendors to make more money and invest more in the future. . To that end, GPUs need to keep selling at high prices so they can keep making the money they need for R&D.

Of course, I hope that Intel’s decision to throw stones at AMD and the two yokozuna will have a huge impact on the two existing companies, and I hope it will lead to happiness.

Is there no other choice but to wait for suggestions from the PC scene?

Perhaps what we can do now is think more deeply about new uses for PCs. So instead of trying to get the power you need right now, one way is to start by thinking about how to use the extra power in front of you. Think about what you should do to use it if it’s not enough.

When I use a PC as a daily tool every day, I get used to its existence, and if it continues to work stably, I feel good.

Once, when I first got my PC and started using it, I never thought about it. I was wondering if I could do this, what about this, and I wanted to do something like this. I often thought it was late. Personally, I have to reflect on the fact that I don’t do that anymore.

By the way, the reason I’ve been using PCs for a long time and felt it got surprisingly fast was when I first used the HDD, when I used RAM disk for the first time and when I first used ADSL. This all goes back more than 20 years.

On the contrary, I felt the PC was slow and unusable when I used JustWindow, a single window system created by JustSystems for the Ichitaro word processing software in the MS-DOS era, for the first time to turn a virtual machine into a PC Is this when I installed and tried it? I remember writing a long document in Word at the time and finding it unbearably heavy. I feel less emotional and angry.

This manuscript was written on April 1. The third spring came in the middle of the crown. Since it’s the new year, many people will have started a new life. The younger generation, who will carry this country on their backs, could start using their own PC then.

I think it is difficult to choose the first PC. But take it easy and find a good companion to work with for the next few years. I never say anything together, and as I always say, the PC world is a no-speed-limit society, so it better be as greedy as possible.

That said, in the end, it will be a cost battle, so the cash balance is important, and there is no choice but to do your best to seek it out.

By way of preliminary knowledge, I would like you to keep in mind that the advantages that GPUs bring to PCs, even if they have nothing to do with graphics, are great, and this trend will become even more important in the future. In this sense, a homemade PC can be an important experiment in various situations. However, it is difficult to transport, so it is unlikely to be ready for action. Also, the total cost is high, which is a problem.

Does the crown end first, or the arrival of a new virtual space first?

As Intel says, it’s unclear how long it will take for GPUs to be used for future virtual spaces and the so-called Metaverse to have another significant social presence.

Maybe some people are already enjoying such a world. The so-called XR (AR / MR / VR) requires unlimited computer resources. I can’t imagine how much it will be, but I think it’s probably much shorter than the last few years Corona has suffered. That’s why you have to arrive on time.

By the way, today April Fool’s Day I removed the “Radeon RX 480” video card that I used on my old PC for over 5 years and attached it to the Core i9 machine 12th generation called Alder Lake. As a result, it failed with a serious error. The system did not recover when I removed the card and it turned blue, but eventually recovered by system restore accessible from the boot error. Let’s try again when we have time.

I kept challenging how far I could go with just integrated graphics, but with Thunderbolt 4’s multi-monitor connection of multiple 4Ks, I suffered a lot of momentary interruptions, which is the same trend for computers laptops. , I’ve come to believe that it will take some time to stabilize due to driver improvements.

That said, it’s hard to get an expensive video card just to add a port, so I tried to use the old parts as they are. Was it a wand that thought the power of the old video card I bought and continued to use five years ago was superior to the integrated graphics card of the latest processor, but that was a little uncomfortable?
