The PNY Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 2GB PCI-Express Video Graphics Card

Hi everyone, Today, we will be seeing the PNY Nvidia GeForce GT 1030 2GB PCI Express Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). This weekend, I didn’t write a post since I spent it diagnosing an issue with my Gigabyte GeForce GT 1030 D4 2G, where it seems it “died”, at least partially, on Windows. After diagnosing the issue and trying it on another PC, I realized that the card may have an internal malfunction preventing the Nvidia Windows drivers from working with…

EVGA will not make next-generation Graphics Cards. A look at my EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Superclocked

Hi everyone, EVGA is reportedly quitting the graphics card market and will not make next-generation cards. With the NVidia GeForce 40-series reveal right around the corner, those who wish to upgrade their cards must make the switch to a new GPU vendor, like ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, and Zotac. I myself got my first EVGA card back in 2016. It is the EVGA GeForce 1060 3GB Superclocked version that costed just about $200 dollars at that moment. This GPU is…

Hi everyone, In this post, I’ll show you how to change the CPU governor in Linux to the Performance mode. This will allow your machine to run to its full potential as the CPU will be running to its maximum supported clock regardless of the load. Normally, we can choose between these CPU scaling governors: Therefore, if we want to get the maximum performance, we should use the performance governor. Some Linux distributions may also use another governor called schedutil…

Changing our Virtual Machine USB Controller Model from qemu-xhci to nec-xhci

After attempting to pass a USB Audio Class 2.0 device using the generic Standard QEMU XHCI controller, I was having some sound issues, particularly with constant pops and distortions while bistreaming audio. After checking for solutions, it seems we can use the nec-xhci controller. This is what I did, and it fixed the sound issues I was having. Before doing…

Passing the BIOS information from our PC to our QEMU/KVM Virtual Machine

Passing the BIOS information from our PC to our QEMU/KVM Virtual Machine

Hi everyone, In this post, we will see how simple it is to pass our physical machine BIOS information to our QEMU/KVM Windows Virtual Machine. Apparently, this is a way some software checks to see if it is running behind a VM and adding a simple line of configuration will pass our real machine BIOS info to the VM, so the software will read the real info rather than the one from the virtualized BIOS. Here’s an image from CPU-Z…
