I have put in HOURS working on my Notion, and it’s paying off, and I feel like I have super powers. But there is a lot of work to make this usable, hopefully by tomorrow.
I also bought a pair of AMD Radeon Pro WX 4100 graphics cards from an unused HP server that someone got from their dad’s work (they are coming off of 3 year leases now!).
It’s basically a 4gb rx460/rx560, but super tiny and limited to either 35 or 50 watts. It can’t do much, but it can power monitors, which my 3400g was failing at.
Anyway, these two things are making me optimistic. Great life upgrades.
Even having these tiny graphics cards allows me to upgraded my 3400g to a much better processor, if the opportunity somehow arises in the future. That was the point of building this “upgrade ready” machine…buying new cpu’s or gpu’s is incredibly difficult, but I can take advantage of either with this setup.
These will also work on lower powered “office” computers that don’t have great power supplies, because they are powered off of the motherboard.
Anyway, graphically, it’s probably as powerful as a 3 year top tier Macbook Pro x2, because I put both of them in my PC.
I would love to ideally have a lower powered pc that is good enough to DO the work, and then a beast to render and to use when I need the heavy lifting. For working on music editing, do I need more than a WX 4100? Heck no…
Do I regret selling my 1080ti? A little. Do I regret selling any of the rx480 or rx580’s I used to get for $80? Yes! I can’t wait until those prices return.
