Actina computers change practically every year, as they have to evolve with the times. We will often verify the performance capability of new video cards, processors, memory types and cooling systems before their official release, so that we can offer verified solutions to our customers.

All these components often incorporate innovative technologies, and as such these come with our PCs. And we will often roast these as well, provided that they look promising to our expert.

The latest discovery we had was the NVIDIA Broadcast, supported by RTX graphic modules. This application can cut out the background from your camera view in real time. It can also change the background and improve the sound quality produced by your mike, removing any unwanted noise in real time.

You can also clean incoming sound from noise. NVIDIA has some samples, e.g. of an air conditioner, which it can eliminate from the other party’s background.

There is also the NVENC encoder streaming, which lets you achieve a quality level previously available to processors only. However, these streams are tougher in terms of hardware, because gamers would most often try to save money on CPUs.

Therefore, NVENC can be a perfect option for many to start heir streaming careers; together with NVIDIA Broadcast, it is a perfect composition that will further improve the stream quality.

As far as streaming is concerned, AMD has its proprietary encoder, too, for video streaming, but the quality is not so perfect here, particularly at a lower bitrate. In terms of software, Radeons have already come a long way, but they still have a lot ahead of them to get to the top.

Yet the reds are very keen fighters on the processor arena, with their currently strongest proposal for esport gamers on the market. Well cranked up units from Intel are still close to Zen 3 in terms of gaming in general, but no approach to CS:GO.

Besides, AMD is great in professional applications, particularly with a properly customized profile. If you want to maximize your processor’s full potential in rendering, you can use a utility that will automatically find the best overclocking profile for every core.

In our computers, we will only crank up the processors through an advanced BIOS profile. For AMD products, we change Precision Boost Overdrive settings manually, so as to get higher frequencies during gameplay.

We do not need any special settings for Intel. Core i5-10400F seems to be a really solid competition for the 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 3600, even without any cranked up memory or cheap Z490. Thus, we are left with the XMP profile only.
