#introductions Hey everyone. I am a PhD Student in Computational Linguistics. My main research interest is computational linguistics for under resourced languages. I am particularly interested in computational linguistics for Bantu languages because of the extremely complex morphology that they bring to the table.
I am also doing research in sentiment analysis on stance detection and irony/sarcasm detection. Most of my research is on machine learning approaches.
Got that rx550 and it works flawlessly. I can even play some games like universe sandbox.
Had to unplug one of the fans though because the bearing was going out and it was really annoying. GPU is still cool and silent now.
One thing I didn't realize was that the optiplexes have a 35 watt limit on the pcie slot power draw instead of 75. The 550 seems to function fine on that much power though.
Running 4k on opensuse plasma with a single monitor is not bad at all.
However, it feels really weird and thick because the integrated gpu in this machine can only do 4k@30 and the difference between 30 and 60 is definitely noticeable.
Now I'm trying to figure out if it makes sense to get an rx550 to put in this old optiplex. There's apparently some issues with compatibility...
