@thexsenator Funny. My wife saw this ad while I was browsing tonymacx86 and thought I was browsing "adult entertaining videos."

I'll test the boot-arg.

EDIT: for others who are interested in the boot-arg igfxfw=2, according to this, it is for 9th Gen chipsets (i.e., Z390) or newer only. Our EliteDesk Minis have the Q370 chipset.

@deeveedee : you must have a much more interesting personalized ad experience than me. I'm just getting ads for refurbished Dells and Kohls.

What they heck are they advertising there? "Five"? I only see two....

@tedyun We'll never know. My post has already been censored and modified.

Moderators, if my post was offensive, maybe the ad content needs to be reviewed.

@tedyun The views of this thread just jumped from 102K to 103K. I think we found the formula for increased views.

Hi guys. I've checked and can't see any 'removed' posts from Moderator level. However if they are linked to other posts which are deleted then the quote can be left as an 'orphan' seemingly without a source.

If you see an advert which is offensive or inappropriate then please use the Contact Us link, bottom-left of every window so that it can be reviewed by the site owners, who have ultimate control.

In the past I've seen a couple and reported them. They can be blocked from being served to the feed in future etc.

Yes, I've seen it. I left it in place when it was in the appropriate forum - Site Suggestions - for the owners to review. The above edited post is not though so will probably be removed ... And let's be honest the lady is scary!

Thanks to @thexsenator for posting his EFI with boot-arg "igfxfw=2," I experimented with and without the boot arg. It does appear that GeekBench5 Metal scores are better with the boot-arg than without. If you experiment with this boot-arg, I would suggest doing so by configuring your experimental EFI on a USB drive, so that you can easily recover. According to Andrey1970 in "the other forum," this boot-arg is for chipsets with ME v12 (Z390, B360, H370, H310, Q370, C246 and newer) which includes the EliteDesk 800 G4/G5 Mini Q370 chipset. Note that I'm running my tests with an i9-9900 CPU.
