RayTracing on AMD R9 Nano with MineCraft!?

I watched a video from UFD Tech about RayTracing on AMD graphics cards. Thought it looked interesting. I got a piece of AMD R9 nano 4GB with Ryzen 2700X with 16gb RAM. I was curious to find out if it was possible to run RayTracing on just such a hardware as AMD’s R9 Nano with GCN 1.2.

For this test, I downloaded the following packages:

Latest version of JAVA
MinecraftInstaller.msi
OptiFine_1.14.4_HD_U_F3.jar
SEUS PTGI E9.zip

And high-resolution textures like this one:

Stratum-256x.zip

Higher resolution than might be overkill for AMD’s R9 Nano as it only has 4GB of graphics memory.
I tested the slightly higher resolution package like this:

Stratum-512x.zip

But it got too much.

I used 32 chunks of render distance with 256x texturepackage and got around 20 fps. If I run without the extra texture packages, the performance was anywhere between 25 to 30 fps

It’s pretty cool that it actually works straight away with RayTracing on such old hardware. It shows something. Perhaps AMD’s Finewine has something to do with this. Hope this was interesting. For me it was really cool to see. 🙂

Power outage

We had power outage at night. Due to the service of power grids. The website plus Teamspeak server with many other services has been down between 23:00 to 05:00.

Now everything is up again.

Gaming controller for Android

If you want a good gaming controller for Android. Check out SteelSeries Free. Works great on Android 4.4.2. Done some test with The Walking Dead Season 1. Works without any special configuration. I’m so happy! Yeeey

Good thing is that it works on most systems. Android, ios, PC and Mac. All you need is Bluetooth.

*Update:
The downside is to buy this one. SteelSeries has discontinued the product.
There is a alternative. Check out SteelSeries Stratus.

Hotmail is Outlook… It shuld be Outlocked!

Well, Funny if you try wrong password to many times you got to put in all the registration data correct, exactly as you registered your account. The funny part that you move along to a different city, you change maybe telephone nr and hasn’t updated the info. Then your out of luck… You have to remember these info’s. Well I don’t. I registered my account for maybe more then 11 years ago.

Thank you Microsoft!
