If you have already registered, but not yet selected for vaccination, you will see your status listed as BEING PROCESSED, before changing to PENDING.

If you have been selected and have accepted the appointment, this page will show you the date, time and location of your COVID-19 vaccination.

 

After Acceptance : How To Check Your Appointment In MySejahtera?

After accepting your COVID-19 vaccination appointment, you will be able to use MySejahtera to check the vaccination date, time and location.

  1. Make sure you update to MySejahtera 1.0.30 or later before you proceed.
  2. Open MySejahtera.
  3. Tap on the Close button on the upper right corner of the default Check-in screen.
  4. You should see the MySejahtera main screen, and it should show you a COVID-19 Vaccination option.

  1. Tap on the COVID-19 Vaccination option and it will show you this information display.
  2. Tap on the first option – Vaccine for [your name here].

  1. In your vaccination details page, tap on 1st Dose appointment to check for your vaccination appointment date, time and location.

How To Report Vaccine Side Effects In MySejahtera!

After receiving your COVID-19 vaccine, you may experience side effects. Find out how to report these side effects in MySejahtera!

 

Why Report Vaccine Side Effects In MySejahtera?

COVID-19 vaccines are designed to mimic the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus, to kickstart your immune system into recognising and defeating it.

This naturally triggers side effects that are really the body’s natural reaction to the perceived COVID-19 infection.

All approved COVID-19 vaccines have undergone extensive trials with hundreds of thousands of volunteers, and have proven to be safe.

However, it is very important to keep tracking side effects and look for very rare side effects that may not show up in those trials.

Hence, people who have been vaccinated should report any side effects they may experience from the vaccine.

NVIDIA Reflex Guide : How To Reduce System Latency!

NVIDIA Reflex is being integrated into games, reducing system latency for GeForce graphics cards.

Find out what NVIDIA Reflex is all about, and how to use it to reduce system latency in supported games!

 

NVIDIA Reflex : What Is It?

NVIDIA describes Reflex as “a revolutionary suite of GPU, G-SYNC display and software technologies” that measure and reduce system latency.

System latency is basically the click-to-display latency – the delay between a key press or a mouse click to the actual action appearing on the display.

It is important for competitive e-sports gamers, because high system latency can impact their performance :

  • Delayed responsiveness : When you move your mouse, but your aim on the screen lags.
  • Delayed shots : When you shoot, the shot and weapon recoil lags.
  • Delayed enemy positions : peeker’s advantage is impacted by system latency

 

NVIDIA Reflex : How Does It Reduce System Latency?

A careful reading will reveal that the key to this technology is the NVIDIA Reflex SDK – a new set of APIs for game developers.

The NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer, which is being integrated into the new 360 Hz G-SYNC Esports monitors, is only eye-candy, and not necessary for Reflex Low Latency Mode to work.

Once integrated into a game, the Reflex Low Latency Mode adjusts the game engine work to complete “just in time” for rendering. This eliminates the GPU render queue, and reduces CPU back pressure.

Like NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency (NULL) mode, Reflex prevents the CPU from processing faster than the GPU, eliminating extra frames from being queued up for rendering, which would normally increase render latency.

The difference really is this – by integrating with the game, the NVIDIA graphics driver can control the amount of back pressure the CPU receives from the render queue and other later stages of the pipeline.

This makes NVIDIA Reflex superior to NULL, but only with games that integrate the SDK.

 

NVIDIA Reflex : How Much System Latency Does It Reduce?

This NVIDIA chart shows the amount of system latency that Reflex shaves off in the first four games to support it.

The biggest improvement was seen with Destiny 2 and Fornite – system latency was down by about ⅓.

System latency was down by 22% in Apex Legends, and 18% in Valorant.

 

NVIDIA Reflex : Requirements

Reflex is only supported by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 900 series graphics cards onwards, using the GeForce Game Ready 457.09 driver or newer.

It is currently supported on these games :

  • Apex Legends
  • Destiny 2
  • Call of Duty : Warzone, Black Ops Cold War
  • CRSED : F.O.A.D.
  • Enlisted
  • Fortnite
  • Mordhau
  • Overwatch
  • Rainbow Six Siege
  • Valorant
  • Warface

 

NVIDIA Reflex : Automatic, With Max Performance Option

There is really nothing much to set for NVIDIA Reflex. Games that support it will enable it by default, if it detects the presence of a compatible NVIDIA graphics card.

The latest GeForce Experience also comes with an automatic performance tuning option, that will turn on low latency options for supported games.

NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency mode is still there, to support games that do not support Reflex.

It is recommended that you enable NULL by selecting the Ultra option. Reflex Low Latency mode will automatically take priority over NULL in games that support it.

There is, however, a “hack” of sorts for those who want to squeeze every last microsecond of latency out of the pipeline.

The NVIDIA Control Panel has a Power Management Mode option that defaults to Adaptive, allowing the GPU to clock down and save power when the load isn’t high.

You can set this to Prefer Maximum Performance, to override the power saving feature. This forces the GPU to always run at the higher clocks, reducing latency in CPU-bound instances at the expense of higher power consumption.

MKN : Work From Home Directive Still Applies!

MKN just confirmed that their Work From Home directive still applies!

Here is what you need to know about the Work From Home directive for RMCO and CMCO areas!

 

MKN : Work From Home Directive Still Applies!

On 11 December 2020, the Malaysia Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) confirmed that their Work From Home directive still applied for CMCO and TEMCO areas.

On 2 March 2021, the Malaysia National Security Council (MKN) cancelled MCO 2.0 and later, lifted inter-district travel restrictions.

On 9 March 2021, MKN confirmed that the existing Work From Home directive would continue in CMCO areas, with 30% capacity for office / management staff.

Therefore, businesses are expected to continue implementing their work from home policies. This is only optional for RMCO areas.

 

MKN Work From Home Directive : What You Need To Know!

Here is a refresher course on the MITI Work From Home directive, based on the latest 23 October 2020 FAQ :

1. Is WFH Mandatory?

WFH is compulsory for management and supervisory staff in CMCO and TEMCO areas, including those involved in tasks like:

  • accounting
  • finance
  • administration
  • law
  • planning
  • ICT.

WFH is not compulsory for employees of these sectors, who are allowed to work as normal :

  • retail stores, grocery stores, convenience stores
  • food stalls, food courts, restaurants
  • plantation and agriculture
  • transportation – express bus, LRT, MRT, taxi, e-hailing
  • food delivery services

2. What If We Need To Be In The Office?

Up to 10 per cent of management and supervisory staff can be in the office, limited to 4 hours only – from 10 AM until 2 PM – for up to 3 days a week.

If the company has 10 people or fewer in the management and supervisory group, only one (1) person is allowed to come to the office at one time.

The company must issue an authorisation letter for each employee who is allowed to work.

3. Can We Rotate?

Companies can create a rotation system for their management and supervisory staff.

The company should maintain the rotation schedule, as well as a list of those who are working from home, and those who are allowed to work in the office.

4. Can We Change The Working Hours?

No, MITI requires companies to comply with these rules for management and supervisory staff :

  • maximum of 4 hours a day
  • from 10 AM until 2 PM
  • maximum of 3 days a week

5. Do We Need To Get Tested Before Working In The Office?

COVID-19 screening is not mandatory for staff who are working in the office. It is only mandatory for :

  • foreign workers in the construction sector
  • security guards
  • all workers from red zones who are symptomatic

AMD Smart Access Memory (Resizable BAR) Guide

Find out what AMD Smart Access Memory is all about, and how to turn it on for a FREE BOOST in performance!

 

Smart Access Memory : PCIe Resizable BAR for AMD!

Smart Access Memory is AMD’s marketing term for their implementation of the PCI Express Resizable BAR (Base Address Registers) capability.

What does that mean exactly?

CPUs are traditionally limited to a 256 MB I/O memory address region for the GPU frame buffer. This of it as an “data dump” for stuff like textures, shaders and geometry.

Since this “data dump” is limited to 256 MB, the CPU can only send texture, shader and geometry data as and when the GPU requires them.

This introduces some latency – delay from when the GPU requires the data, and the CPU send them.

Turning on Resizable BAR or Smart Access Memory greatly expands the size of that data dump, letting the CPU directly access the GPU’s entire frame buffer memory.

Instead of transferring data when requested by the GPU, the CPU processes and stores the data directly in the graphics memory.

Graphics assets can be transferred to graphics memory in full, instead of in pieces. In addition, multiple transfers can occur simultaneously, instead of being queued up.

While this AMD graphic above suggests that Smart Access Memory will widen the memory path (and thus memory bandwidth) between the CPU and GPU, that is not true.

Smart Access Memory / Resizable BAR will not increase memory bandwidth.

What it does is let the CPU directly access the entire GPU frame buffer memory, instead of using the usual 256 MB “dump”. That reduces latency because the graphics assets are now accessible by the GPU at all times.

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : Performance Gains

According to AMD, enabling Smart Access Memory will give you a small but free boost of 5% to 11% in gaming performance.

Here is a summary of the test results from our article, RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory Performance Comparison!

You can expect up to 16% better performance in some games, but no effect in certain games. But overall, you get a free boost in performance. There is simply no reason not to enable Smart Access Memory.

1080p Resolution (1920 x 1080)

1440p Resolution (2560 x 1440)

2160p Resolution (3840 x 2160)

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : Requirements

Since Smart Access Memory is just an AMD implementation of PCI Express Resizable BAR. Therefore, it can be be implemented for all PCI Express 3.0 and PCI Express 4.0 graphics cards and motherboards.

However, AMD is currently limiting it to a small subset of components, having validated it only for their new Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, select Ryzen 3000 Series Processors and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards.

So this is what you currently require to enable AMD Smart Access Memory :

Hardware

Software

  • AMD Radeon Software Driver 20.11.2 or newer
  • Latest Motherboard BIOS (AMD AGESA 1.1.0.0 or newer)

AMD currently recommends these X570 motherboards, because they have updated BIOS available :

 

AMD Smart Access Memory : How To Enable It?

If you have all of those supported components above, and updated your motherboard BIOS, you need to manually enable Smart Access Memory.

Now, the method will vary from motherboard to motherboard, and it probably won’t even be called Smart Access Memory.

Instead, look for variations of Above 4G Decoding, or Resizing BAR, or Resizable BAR, or Re-Size BAR Support.

AMD Generic Method

AMD has provided these generic steps to enable Smart Access Memory :

  1. Enter the System BIOS by press <DEL> or <F12> during the system startup.
  2. Navigate to the Advanced Settings or Advanced menu.
  3. Enable “Above 4G Decoding” and “Re-Size BAR Support“.
  4. Save the changes and restart the computer.

Step-by-Step Method For ASUS Crosshair VIII Hero

In our guide, we are using the ASUS CROSSHAIR VIII Hero (AMD X570) motherboard, as an example :

  1. First you will need to turn off CSM (Compatibility Support Module), or make sure it’s disabled.Go to the Boot menu and look for a CSM / Compatibility Support Module option.

  1. Set CSM (Compatibility Support Module) to Disabled.

  1. Go to the Advanced menu and look for the PCI Subsystem. In other motherboards, look for PCIe / PCI Express configuration options.

  1. Enable Above 4G Decoding.

  1. This will give you access to the Re-Size BAR Support option. Set it to Auto.

  1. Now go to the Exit menu, and select Save Changes & Reset.

  1. It will ask you to confirm the changes. Just verify both, and click OK.

After the motherboard reboots, AMD Smart Access Memory (PCIe Resizable BAR) will be enabled for your Ryzen 5000 series CPU and Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card!

 

CSM Warning For GIGABYTE AORUS X570 Master

AMD currently recommends these X570 motherboards, because they have updated BIOS available :

CSM is disabled by default for the ASUS, ASRock and MSI motherboards. However, it is enabled by default in the GIGABYTE AORUS X570 Master.

If you installed Windows without first turning CSM off, it will be configured as non-UEFI. It will NOT boot if you enable Resizable BAR Support (Smart Access Memory).

You will need to reinstall Windows with CSM support disabled.

Telegram : How To Move Chat History From Other Apps

Telegram just introduced the ability to import chat history from other messaging apps.

Find out how to move your chat history from other messaging apps to Telegram!

 

Telegram Now Lets You Move Chat History From Other Apps

Telegram has been very active trying to encourage disgruntled WhatsApp users to migrate to their messaging app.

On 28 January 2021, Telegram introduced the ability to import chat history from other messaging apps like WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk.

This feature works for both individual chats and chat groups, and leverages the export function already available in those messaging apps for years now.

Before you proceed, we should warn you about the security risks of moving your chats to Telegram :

  • it lacks end-to-end encryption for all chats, except Secret Chat
  • your data – chats and files – are all stored in their cloud servers
  • your data is encrypted in storage, but Telegram has the encryption keys

You can read more about the risks in Why You Should NOT Move WhatsApp Chats To Telegram!

 

Telegram : How To Move Chat History From Other Apps

This video example demonstrates how to migrate your chats and files from WhatsApp to Telegram on iOS (left), and Android (right). It should work the same way for the other apps.

Moving Chats On iOS

  1. Make sure you have the latest versions of WhatsApp and Telegram.
  2. Open WhatsApp.
  3. Open Contact Info or Group Info.
  4. Tap Export Chat.
  5. Choose to Include Media or export Without Media.
  6. Select Telegram in the Share menu.

Moving Chats On Android

  1. Make sure you have the latest versions of WhatsApp and Telegram.
  2. Open WhatsApp.
  3. Tap on the ⋮ icon.
  4. Select More > Export Chat.
  5. Choose to Include Media or export Without Media.
  6. Select Telegram in the Share menu.

As you can see, it’s pretty simple. But you have to do it for every chat or chat group.

You cannot do a mass export and import of all chats from WhatsApp (or other messaging apps) to Telegram.

Many Nokia 3.4 users are complaining that their camera stopped working around New Year 2021 – either on the eve – 31 December 2020, or New Year’s Day – 1 January 2021.

Specifically, the Nokia camera app would crash within a second of opening it. Those who managed to take a shot before it crashed would only get a photo of a grey square.

Like the camera failures affecting the Nokia 8.3 5G, the problem partly due to the recent firmware updates, but the problem only manifested around New Year 2021.

In fact, it will affect brand new Nokia 3.4 phones that were sold and opened up on and after 1 January 2021.

 

Nokia 3.4 Camera New Year Bug Workarounds

Restarting the phone won’t help, and even a soft reset or hard reset won’t work.

It appears that the Nokia 3.4 camera malfunction is a date bug (like the famous Y2K or Millennium Bug) affecting their Camera app version 97.10.1400.01.

Nokia says they are working on a fix, but until they release a working update, here are two ways to fix the Nokia 3.4 camera failure.

Use A Third-Party App

The Nokia 3.4 camera is still functioning – it’s just their Camera app that’s broken.

So you can use a messaging app like WhatsApp or Telegram to take photos and videos.

However, you may not get the full resolution or quality since these apps use a much lower photo and video resolution to reduce file size.

The best option is to use a third-party camera app like Open Camera or the Google Camera port.

Change The Date

Another way is to change the date on your affected Nokia smartphone :

  1. Go to Settings > System > Date & time
  2. Turn off Network-Provided Date & Time.
  3. Change the date to either :
    a) 30 December 2020 or earlier
    b) 2 January 2021 or later

After that, the Nokia camera app will run properly. But it won’t do to keep running with the wrong date.

  1. Open and then close the Camera app
  2. Go to Settings > System > Date & time
  3. Turn on Network-Provided Date & Time.

This should let you use the Nokia 3.4 smartphone with the proper date, and a usable camera app, albeit with Scene Detection disabled.

Nokia 8.3 Camera New Year Failure : How To Fix It!

Nokia 8.3 5G users received a New Year surprise, when its camera stopped working from New Year 2021 onwards.

Find out what happened, and the two workarounds you can try!

 

Nokia 8.3 5G Camera Crashes On New Year 2021!

Many Nokia 8.3 5G users are complaining that their camera stopped working on around New Year 2021 – either on the eve – 31 December 2020, or New Year’s Day – 1 January 2021.

Specifically, the Nokia camera app would crash within a second of opening it. Those who managed to take a shot before it crashed would only get a photo of a grey square.

At first, they thought it might have been the October or December 2020 update, but oddly enough – the camera only failed on either on 31 December 2020, or 1 January 2021.

Two different people also reported that they bought the Nokia 8.3 5G on 31 December 2020 and 1 January 2021, and the camera on both phones didn’t work either.

Restarting the phone or soft-resetting it won’t work. Even a hard reset that a German user, Gabriel Steinecker, tried did NOT work.

Eventually, it was discovered that the Nokia 8.3 5G’s physical camera was working fine. It was the Nokia camera app that did not work. Third party apps like WhatsApp and Telegram, for example, could still take photos and videos.

The Nokia 8.3 5G camera malfunction seems to be a date bug (like the famous Y2K or Millennium Bug) affecting their Camera app version 97.10.1400.01.

In fact, it could be affecting more than just Nokia 8.3 5G users. The problem also affects the Nokia 3.4 smartphone.

Nokia says they are working on a fix, but until they release a working update, here are two ways to fix the Nokia 4.3 camera failure.

Use A Third-Party App

  4. Go to Settings > System > Date & time
  5. Turn on Network-Provided Date & Time.

This should let you use the Nokia 8.3 smartphone with the proper date, and a usable camera app, albeit with Scene Detection disabled.

Pfizer + Moderna mRNA Vaccines : How Do They Work?

The Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines are likely to be the first approved for use against COVID-19, but do you know how they work?

Here is a quick primer on the new mRNA vaccine technology, and how it teaches our body to fight against COVID-19!

 

mRNA Vaccines : How Do They Work?

Both Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are based on new mRNA (messenger RNA) technology.

Unlike more traditional methods of using dead particles, or attenuated viruses; an mRNA vaccine does not come with the parts necessary to trigger the immune response.

Instead, the Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines contain mRNA strands – literally coding instructions for our cells.

They are used by our cells to create a protein antigen. Think of it as a flag that tells our body how to identify a particular enemy.

It is this antigen (flag) that triggers the immune response that teaches our body how to fight the real disease.

 

Pfizer + Moderna mRNA Vaccines : How Do They Prevent COVID-19?

Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna have mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccines that have cleared Stage 3 trials with 95% efficacy rates.

Both rely on mRNA instructions that code for the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. This spike protein serves as the antigen – a flag that lets our body identify the actual SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The mRNA strands in the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are used by ribosomes in our cells to create the spike proteins, and then discarded.

The spike protein – flag – is presented on the surface of the cell, triggering the body’s immune response. Think of it as using your cells to create and wave the enemy’s flag.

Our body then learns to create antibodies that target the spike protein. If we actually get infected by SARS-CoV-2, those antibodies will immediately attach to the virus particles :

  • preventing them from infecting our cells
  • cause the virus particles to stick together (agglutinate), making them easier targets
  • identifying the virus particles as targets for phagocytic cells to destroy

The immune response to the spike proteins will also train memory cells, so that they can respond to a future COVID-19 infection weeks or months after vaccination.

 

COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines : Some Common Myths

We would like to take this opportunity to debunk certain myths about mRNA vaccines, specifically those being developed for use against COVID-19.

False Claim #1 : mRNA Vaccines Can Cause COVID-19

Unlike vaccines using attenuated viruses, mRNA vaccines do not contain any live virus. Therefore, they can never cause COVID-19.

They only contain mRNA instructions to build the identifying features of the SARS-CoV-2 virus – its spike protein.

The immune response to this spike protein may cause COVID-19-like effects (fever, headache, chills, etc.) but that is only your body learning to fight against it.

False Claim #2 : mRNA Vaccines Can Change Our DNA

mRNA strands are read and used only by ribosomes in the cytoplasm of our cells.

They do NOT enter the cell nucleus, which is where our chromosomes (containing our DNA) reside. Therefore, it is not possible for mRNA to change our DNA.

It is also expensive to create these mRNA sequences, so there is just enough in the vaccine to trigger the immune response. There is not enough to saturate our body and change our DNA, even if it’s possible to do it.

False Claim #3 : mRNA Vaccines Stay In Our Cells Forever

mRNA sequences are basically instructions by our DNA to the ribosomes, instructing them to create proteins for the cell to use.

Because the cell’s requirements can change rapidly according to conditions, mRNA are, by nature, short-lived and degrade over time.

That’s why the COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna have a short shelf life, and require very low storage temperatures.

They also discarded after use, just like how you discard your shopping list after you are done buying your groceries.

Once they are used by our ribosomes to create the spike proteins, they are discarded by the cell. There is simply no way for mRNA strands to survive long in our body, or our cells.

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Adaptive Undervolting Comes To Ryzen!

AMD just introduced Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2), which introduces adaptive undervolting for Ryzen processors, amongst other improvements.

Find out what Precision Boost Overdrive 2 offers, and what effect it has on performance of AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors!

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Improved Overclocking + Adaptive Undervolting!

Precision Boost Overdrive is the dynamic overclocking capability built into AMD Ryzen processors, with these features :

  • raises socket power limit
  • raises motherboard VRM limit
  • can override max boost frequency
  • primarily designed to improve multi-thread performance

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2) comes with all of the original PBO features, as well as these new features :.

  • improved single-thread performance
  • adds adaptive undervolting capability
  • adds standalone undervolting capability for AMD Ryzen 5000 Series processors
  • improved performance per watt.
  • can lower operating temperatures.
  • ability to customise voltages and frequencies to a specific processor.

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Curve Optimizer

The new adaptive undervolting capability in Precision Boost Overdrive 2 (PBO2) is achieved through the Curve Optimizer.

The new Curve Optimizer tells the firmware what window of undervolting is desired, and adapts to both light and heavy workloads.

Undervolting, however, will not be done with raw millivolts. Instead, it will be applied with “counts“.

  • 1 Count is approximately 3 mV ~ 5 mV. This range means less undervolting during high loads, and more undervolting when the load is lower.
  • You can adjust the voltage by +/- 30 Counts. 30 Counts would be a range of 90~150 mV.
  • The adjustments can be applied per core, or on all cores.

The Curve Optimizer algorithm is adaptive – so it will automatically underplot when the circumstances are suitable, and restore voltage when it needs to.

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : Performance Boost

According to AMD, PBO2 offers better single-threaded performance than the original PBO.

Enabling it will let the Ryzen 7 5800X deliver 2.6% better 1T performance in CINEBENCH R20, while the Ryzen 9 5900X delivers 2% better 1T performance.

Hardly earth-shattering performance, but hey, it’s free!

Multi-threaded performance also gets a small but nice boost from PBO2.

AMD says the Ryzen 7 5800X should get a 2.2% boost, while the Ryzen 9 5900X gets a very nice 10% boost in multi-threaded performance!

 

Precision Boost Overdrive 2 : System Requirements

Here are the system requirements for Precision Boost Overdrive 2 to work :

  • AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor
  • AMD 500 or 400 Series motherboard
  • Motherboard BIOS based on AMD AGESA 1.1.8.0 or later

The PBO2 update is available for all AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processors through a motherboard BIOS upgrade available in December 2020.

RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory Performance Comparison!

Find out what AMD Smart Access Memory is all about, and how much of a performance effect it really has on the Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card!

 

RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory : How Does It Improve Performance?

Smart Access Memory is really a marketing term for AMD’s implementation of the PCI Express Resizable BAR (Base Address Registers) capability.

CPUs are traditionally limited to a 256 MB I/O memory address “window” for the GPU frame buffer.

Turning on Resizable BAR or Smart Access Memory removes that small access window, letting the CPU directly access the Radeon RX 6800 XT‘s graphics memory.

While the AMD graphics above suggest that Smart Access Memory will widen the memory path, and thus memory bandwidth, between the CPU and GPU, that’s not true.

It does not increase memory bandwidth. Instead, it speeds up CPU to GPU communications, by letting the CPU directly access more of GPU memory, instead of using the usual 256 MB “window”.

RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory : 3DMark

The 3DMark benchmark results don’t show any significant performance difference, with Smart Access Memory enabled.

 

RX 6800 XT Smart Access Memory : Game Performance Summary

But let’s look at its effect on the real world gaming performance…

Let’s start with a bird’s eye look at the performance effect of Smart Access Memory on the Radeon RX 6800 XT‘s performance.

For more detailed look at Smart Access Memory’s effect on each game, please click to the next page.

1080p Resolution (1920 x 1080)

At 1080p, Smart Access Memory improved frame rates by about 4.33%, and does not always give a performance boost to the Radeon RX 6800 XT.

It had virtually no performance effect in World War Z, The Division 2 and Star Control : Origins.

On the other hand, it delivered up to 16% better frame rates in Total War : Troy.

1440p Resolution (2560 x 1440)

Smart Access Memory had a bigger (5.22% average) effect on the Radeon RX 6800 XT at 1440p.

It had no effect in four games – Metro Exodus, World War Z, The Division 2 and Star Control : Origins.

But it has a large 10%-11% performance boost in F1 2019, Total War : Troy, Dirt 5 and Gears Tactics.

2160p Resolution (3840 x 2160)

At the 4K resolution though, the average performance boost from Smart Access Memory dropped to just 3.11%.

Most of the games had insignificant boosts in frame rates of 2-3%. Oddly enough, World War Z received a significant 4% boost in frame rate at 4K.

F1 2019 received the biggest boost from Smart Access Memory – a large 14% boost in frame rate!

Face Mask Guide : The RIGHT Way To Wear + Remove!

Wearing a face mask is critical in preventing the spread of COVID-19, but only if you wear it the right way.

It is also important to REMOVE it the right way, or you could end up infecting yourself!

Learn the RIGHT way to wear your face mask, and the RIGHT way to remove it!

Originally posted on 23 April 2020.

Updated @ 2020-11-07 : Added instructions for wearing a pitta or fashion mask. Various other updates.

 

Face Mask : Effectiveness Of Each Type

There are many kinds of face masks in the market, but we are going to focus on the three main ones that are easy for you to get :

Some Effectiveness : Fashion Or Pitta Mask

  • usually made from cotton or (better) polyurethane, without any specific protection rating
  • includes home-made cotton masks recommended by the CDC and the Czechs in this category

Moderately Effective : 3-Ply Surgical Face Mask

  • usually rated with bacterial filtration efficiency of >99% at 5 microns, and >95% at 3 microns
  • has outer hydrophobic layer, which repels water, blood and body fluids,
  • and a middle filter layer that is designed to filter bacteria, and finally,
  • an inner hydrophilic layer, which absorbs water, sweat and spit

Highly Effective : N95 Respirator

  • has a particle filtration efficiency of >95% at 0.3 microns
  • must be properly fitted with a very close facial fit

In this article, we are going to focus on the 3-ply surgical face mask, which is the most common type of face mask used in China and most of Asia, to protect against SARS and now, the COVID-19 coronavirus.

How To Wear A Pitta / Fashion Face Mask Correctly

Here are some step-by-step instructions for wearing a pitta / fashion face mask correctly :

  1. Clean your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser, before touching the mask
  2. Hold the mask by its ear loops and bring it to your face.
  3. Place a loop around each ear, and tighten them to ensure a close fit.
  4. Adjust the mask to make sure it covers your nose as high up as possible, while also covering your chin.
  5. If your face mask has a nose strip, mould or pinch it to conform to the shape of your nose.

How To Remove A Pitta / Fashion Face Mask Correctly

After use, the mask will be dirty and contaminated and must be removed and washed.

So please follow these instructions, to avoid infecting yourself while removing your face mask :

  1. Clean your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser, before touching the mask.
  2. AVOID touching the front of the mask, because it is contaminated. Only touch the ear loops.
  3. Hold and unhook both ear loops and gently lift the mask away from your face.
  4. Immediately wash the pitta / fashion face mask with soap and water. Make sure you scrub it for at least 30 seconds with soap before rinsing it off.

So please follow these instructions, to avoid infecting yourself while removing your face mask :

  5. If the surgical face mask has elastic bands – lift the bottom strap over your head first, and then pull the top strap over your head
  6. Holding the mask only by the ear loops / ear ties / ear bands, dispose of the mask in the trash.
  7. Clean your hands with soap and water, or hand sanitiser again, before touching anything else.

Google Play Music Is Dead : How To Download Your Music?

Google Play Music is officially dead across the world, and you have until December 2020 to migrate your music library and playlists to YouTube Music.

Find out how to download your music library and playlists from Google Play Music before they are deleted forever!

 

Google Play Music Is Dead : Whaaaaat???

On 4 April 2020, Google dropped the bombshell – they announced that they were replacing Google Play Music play with YouTube Music by December 2020.

They would kill off Google Play Music starting September 2020 in New Zealand and South Africa, and October 2020 for the rest of the world.

Users will no longer be allowed to stream from, or use the Google Play Music app from that point onwards. They will only be allowed to transfer their music libraries to YouTube Music.

Even that migration offer is limited to December 2020, after which the Google Play Music libraries will be deleted and will no longer be available to download or transfer to YouTube Music.

 

Google Play Music Is Dead : Download Your Music Now!

Google offers the option to migrate your Google Play Music libraries and playlists to YouTube Music, but you may not want to do that for these reasons :

  • 128 kbps quality limit for free subscriptions
  • you can’t upload your own music through the app, only using an Internet browser
  • offline playback of your own music requires you to upload and then download the same music

Before deciding what to do next, the first thing you should do is download your music library.

You have until the end of December 2020 to download your music, so do it now!

  1. Open Google Play Music.
  2. Tap on Manage Your Data.
  3. Tap on Download your music library.

  1. Leave Google Play Music checked.
  2. Select to export once.
  3. Select the more common .zip file format, or the .tgz alternative
  4. Select the maximum file size you prefer – 1 GB, 2 GB, 4 GB, 10 GB or 50 GB.
    Google will split your files into multiple compressed files based on the maximum size you selected.
    Newer operating systems (Windows 10, macOS) can support files larger than 4 GB.

  1. Tap Create export and let Google archive and compress your music library.
  2. You will receive an email with a download link when it’s done.

Face Mask vs COVID-19 : Should You Wear One?

Should YOU wear a face mask to protect yourself against COVID-19?

Some politicians insist it is useless. Some health authorities advise us to wear it only if you are sick. Others demand you wear one in public at all times.

What really is the evidence for, or against, wearing a face mask to protect against COVID-19?

This story was originally posted in April 2020, and has been updated due to second / third waves affecting many countries.

 

Face Mask : What Kind Do You Have?

When people say face mask, they generally mean the 3-ply surgical mask, although some may be talking about fashion masks, or even the N95 respirator.

Fashion masks are usually made from washable cotton and are reusable, but they often lack a filter. The N95 respirator, on the other hand, is designed to filter 95% of particles with a median diameter of 0.3 microns.

For the purpose of this article, we are going to talk exclusively about the 3-ply surgical / medical mask, which has three layers – each with very specific functions :

  • an outer hydrophobic layer, which repels water, blood and body fluids,
  • a middle filter layer that is designed to filter bacteria, and
  • an inner hydrophilic layer, which absorbs water, sweat and spit

The 3-ply surgical mask is the most common type of face mask used in China and most of Asia, to protect against SARS and now, COVID-19.

 

Is The Face Mask Effective Against COVID-19?

Now, to be clear – studies are still underway to determine if the humble 3-ply face mask is effective against COVID-19. But here is what we know so far…

COVID-19 Is Generally NOT Airborne

First, we should understand that COVID-19 is generally not airborne, and primarily spreads by droplets, which are significantly larger than the virus itself and fall within 1-2 meters.

COVID-19 droplets can, therefore, be blocked by 3-ply masks or N95 respirators even though the virus itself is smaller than the filter holes!

Face Masks Prevent Face Touching

You can get infected by COVID-19 if you touch your face after touching a contaminated surface with your hand. Hand washing can prevent that, but people often forget to do it, and it is human nature to touch our own faces.

Wearing a face mask helps to prevent face touching, so even if we forget to wash our hands, there is less risk of infecting ourselves with COVID-19.

Face Masks Worked In Asia + Czech Republic

The evidence is strong in many Asian countries, including China, as well as the Czech Republic, that face masks are effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19.

The Czechs are so enthusiastic about their experience, they created this video to spread word that face masks work, even if they are not 3-ply!

Many Asian countries, including China, Singapore and Malaysia, require their citizens to wear one whenever they leave the house.

The Asian and Czech experiences are backed up by a CDC-sponsored study, which showed that surgical masks are as effective as N95 respirators in preventing influenza infections amongst healthcare workers.

This study is important because influenza is a similarly-sized respiratory virus that spreads by droplets too. So it makes sense that face masks would be similarly effective against COVID-19.

 

Why Did WHO / CDC Recommend Against Wearing Face Masks?

Certain health authorities like the WHO or CDC recommended against wearing face masks to protect against COVID-19, because they feared that :

There is also the consideration that when there is limited supply, 3-ply face masks and N95 respirators should be reserved for healthcare workers who have much greater need of them.

Should You Wear A Face Mask To Protect Against COVID-19?

That depends.

No Community Spread

If there is no community spread of COVID-19 in your country, there is NO NEED to wear a face mask.

As long as health authorities can quickly trace and isolate contacts for testing, the virus is “not in the wild”, and you are very unlikely to be infected.

Keep your face masks in reserve. Using them now could mean you run out of face masks when you actually need them.

There Is Community Spread

Once there is community spread, all bets are off. The COVID-19 coronavirus is problematic because patients are contagious long before they show symptoms.

ANYONE can be COVID-19 positive, even if they don’t have symptoms. That includes you and your family, not just strangers you meet on the street.

To protect everyone, this is the time to start wearing a face mask.

In fact, everyone should be forced to wear a face mask, because it would help prevent asymptomatic / presymptomatic persons from spreading the coronavirus.

During Home Quarantine

One way to reduce the need for face masks is a home quarantine / restricted movement / lockdown.

You do NOT need to wear a face mask while you are sheltering at home with your family.

You only need to wear a face mask during the limited occasions you leave your home to purchase food and other essential supplies.

And you should certainly wear a face mask while accepting food deliveries or parcels from a delivery person.
