  1. Type: Laptop Model: Aspire 5 A15-44 CPU Model: Ryzen 7 4700U CPU Base Frequency: 2GHz CPU Turbo Frequency: 4GHz RAM: 8GB RAM Clockspeed: 2396mhz GPU: AMD Radeon RX Vega 7 Storage Type: SSD Benchmark A: 1 min 19 Benchmark B: 10 min 4 Benchmark C: 9 min 11 Also ran Benchmark A on my old laptop (Intel Core i5-4210M), that came in at 2 min 6 so very happy with the improvement. Shout out to the advice I received in the laptop recommendation thread. I was recommended to wait for a 4600U when I was looking for a laptop about a month ago, picked this up for £637 which feels like good value (don't say otherwise! ).
  2. Thanks. I'm guessing the 4700U is still better than the 4600U as it has more cores rather than the extra threads? When they're more widely avaliable I will make a decision on which to go for, but I just want to make sure I'm understanding it correctly.
  3. I asked for some advice a couple of pages back and @Gangor advised me that the new Ryzen 4600u could potentially be in my price range so I've been doing some research around the new Ryzen processors. My question is what's more important for FM; the base clock frequency or the number of cores? Secondly, but linked, does hyperthreading make a difference for FM? For example I see the 4600u has 6 cores (12 logical) clocked at 2.1ghz, whereas the 4500u has 6 cores, clocked at 2.3ghz. Could that potentially be better for FM or am I missing the point? Although I try and educate myself when making a big purchase I apologise if this is a dumb question. I've been asking my brother who's a software engineer and understands these things better than me, but he doesn't play FM Your help is very much appreciated.
  4. Hi, Having played a lower league game in this years football manager I have taken to trialling a lot of players as scouts just cannot scout players quickly enough to get to full knowledge (which makes sense). The issue is players who are interested in signing on loan but not transfer always reject trial offers as I assume they are trialling for a transfer rather than a loan. If we could specify that I wish to trial them for a loan deal perhaps they would then be more open to accepting the trial. There could be a default option of trial for either transfer or loan so people don't need to select every time. I realise trialling for loans is less common than transfers but I remember my club, Portsmouth, had Matt Clarke on trial before we signed him on loan from Ipswich so it does happen.
  5. Hi all, I have read this thread over the last week or two as the chassis on my laptop is breaking near the charging port which is making charging it an ever increasingly difficult task. I'm on the lookout for a new laptop and I would really appreciate some advice on what would best suit my play style in my budget range. A new laptop would almost exclusively be used for football manager, I don't play other games, and I still use the 2d engine. I watch goals in 3d and that's it, having a laptop that's better suited to running 3d won't make me any more likely to use it... I'm old skool like that! I think based on the above would mean I'm almost exclusively looking to be able to process the game as fast as possible. My budget is around the £550 mark, but could probably stretch an extra £50. Thanks in advance.
  6. I'm having an issue where I am unable to adjust the panels vertically, horizontal is fine. I've read a couple of other people mention this in this thread, but no solution. Is anyone able to help?
  7. What BBC said. Fantastic day yesterday. Oh and Kitson is still ****.
  8. Tbf the same could be said about the steward who goaded our fans when you scored the winner, then your keeper acting like he just won the champions league final at the final whistle. Fair enough you won but go celebrate with your team mates not wind up the opposition fans.
  9. Why so shocked? We are appallingly **** and we have been telling you all for months!
  10. Their short passing game was so boring on Tuesday night, it's the most bored I've been at fratton park all season. Considering how terrible we have been that's saying something.
  11. I hate Steve Cotterill so much. When Ritchie becomes a good championshi player I'll hate him even more.
  12. He keeps getting dropped for no reason, every time he plays he looks really good. Then he had one bad half against Walsall and he was out, the whole team was bad against Walsall ffs He probably does lack the physical presence to be consistent.
  13. His movement is really good, simple stuff like dropping the shoulder to lose his man and selling the defender a dummy to get a bit of space.
