    I don't think that's supported either, some 7xxx and higher end 8xxx Radeon cards onwards by the look of what I read on the AMD Catalyst page.
    So, Ok for single monitor work to take the load off the IGP, but nothing more complex.

    5xxx series is the oldest with supported W10 drivers. But even then they're old ones - 15.7.1

    Most of the stuff she does with a PC is because it's easier to do w/ keyboard & mouse than on a mobile device.

    Even the most basic pre-built PC would be "5x too powerful" (sic) for what she does on a PC... Heck; most flagship smartphones are probably more powerful than her PC.

    On Tuesday I learned Pythagoras as I needed it to work out Power factors and Phase Angles as they use triangles and it all ties into Inductance & Capacitance (Z - Impedance)

    I've had a few, "duh" moments lately as I come back to Disney movies for the first time since I was a child (as my own children watch them).

    Little Mermaid - In mermaid lore, sirens would deduce sailors into the sea with their voices and then drown them. In The Little Mermaid, Ariel must give up her voice and then seduce prince Eric. It seems unfair, but taking mermaid lore into account, Ursula is actually just leveling the playing field.

    Peter Pan - Peter Pan and the lost boys live in a place where they don't age and won't die (unless in battle). Captain hook has his hand cut off and fed to a crocodile and subsequently feeds a ticking clock to the crocodile so that he can hear it coming. The crocodile represents the passage of time and our inevitable death. Captain Hook is often faced with the fact that he is an adult and that death is around the corner in the form of the literal ticking clock inside the croc who wants to eat him.

    Stranger Things 3 is basically Half-life, with kids.

    TIL that when a bee hive becomes too full, bees will form a "Senate" comprised of older, more experienced bees to seek a new location. When a bee finds a good spot, it begins dancing to motion other bees toward it. Then, they vote on it by dancing as a collective until a consensus is reached.
