>It brings dramatic boost in performance
Good ole marketing bs..
The real truth is that unfortunately it's not too exciting since the previous generation was already fast enough to saturate the sata 3 connection anyway..so it's the sata 3 spec that's holding SSD's back now and until we get sata 3.2 we are kinda stuck

>It brings dramatic boost in … durability

That's nice on paper, but durability was already high enough to allow most SSDs to survive decades of normal use and you would have long past upgraded before it failed anyway.

I tried overclocking my nVidia GeForce GTX 580 1.5gb GDDR5 384-bit to 900MHz core clock at a voltage of 1100. It reached around 70c while playing Watch Dogs. Is that still safe or no more?

I overclocked my FX-4100 to 4.0GHz but it still keeps throttling down. CPU-Z says it goes down to even 1.4GHz even if I have my C1E and Cool-n-Quiet settings off. Will liquid cooling help? If it stays cool enough, will my CPU's clock not throttle down when I'm playing?

Also, I have a 1600MHz CL7 RAM. I realized that it's always been running at just 1333MHz. So, I tried overclocking it to just 1600MHz but it says that I can't boot at that setting. So, I turned on Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) and put the memory ratio up to 8. It's now running at 1600MHz but then, my games keep crashing at a point and from time to time, Google Chrome crashes and auto-restarts.

Now, I put the RAM back to 1333MHz with XMP off. It doesn't crash like that anymore. Though, I'd like to utilize the entire 1600MHz (which my 970A-DS3 supposedly can take, even up to 2000MHz given an AM3+ processor like my FX-4100 is used). Also, the throttling down is disturbing me when I play Watch Dogs in ultra settings.

Dozens of things could be happening.
You might have been sold ram that is actually 1333mhz, ooops.
If could be your motherboard (not all are OC friendly)
it could be your power supply (might need a bigger more OC friendly model)

This is why I don't OC, like I said
if you need more power, buy more power..amd processors leave a lot to be desired compared to intels latest for example.

Liquid cooling probably will help, yes, but again, for the cost and trouble of all of that, I would have just skipped amd and went with intel to begin with.

Given that, I suggest taking your questions to a dedicated overclockers type forum. I'm sure there's more people familiar with your exact specs that can pinpoint some things that might be the issue.

I got my 1600MHz RAM from a legit store with too high a reputation to fake it. I checked out the product too.

My motherboard's said to support up to 2000MHz:

I have a bronze Antec 750W true-rated power supply. You think it should've been 1000.

Thanks but I've been searching through a lot with no help. Stable overclocks at stock voltage for my 3.6GHz (with 3.8GHz turbo, which I turned off) on my FX-4100 was said to be possible until 4.2GHz without heat changes. Mine's really great at 4.0GHz but after 15 mins or so, you'll feel the throttle down. That's why I thought I might liquid cool it so it never reaches "throttle point".

You're right. I plan to switch back to Intel since they announced that new i7 8-core 16 threads, I think. I'll get it with DDR4 and obviously a new motherboard. That's why I haven't ordered the Evo 840 from Amazon yet.
To be clear, whether I overclock or not, it throttles down to 1.4GHz.

>To be clear, whether I overclock or not, it throttles down to 1.4GHz.
The processor? Sorry, it's hard to follow because you've so far talked about memory, processor, and gpu all throttled down lower than spec.
Lots of CPUs throttle down as a power saving option (at factory settings)..they also throttle down when they get too hot, so yes, it sounds like it's getting too hot…but bumping down to 1.4 sounds like it's going into power saving mode… however It could be as simple as the heatsink/fan are not big enough support the OC
OR you have screwed up the application of the thermal paste on the processor..it's a bitch to get right and too little or not enough can really fuck you.

I'm really not sure what to tell you about that RAM

>I have a bronze Antec 750W true-rated power supply. You think it should've been 1000.

I'm not sure, you should invstigate the power specs for all your components. 750 sounds like it should do it, but I'm really not sure.

Yeah, I was talking about the processor. I'm sorry for the confusion. Here's what I mean. See my multiplier? It's at a 7-20 range. 7 is 1.4GHz and 20 is 4.0GHz. When it was not overclocked, it was a 7-18 range. That's 3.6GHz, the base clock. I prefer that it's just 20… or maybe like 16-20 and I'll just get a liquid cooling thing for the CPU. I saw one that's 3,200 Php (around 74 USD) only. Though it would've been better if both my CPU and GPU are cooled, my GTX 580 doesn't reach 80 degrees anyway.

When I tried the Asus power testing site thing, I included the other components I still want aside from what I already have. My power requirement was only about 600w.

I've been having problems with the internet on my desktop. With my other devices, even my tablet that runs the same exact OS, my connection is more than good! So, I decided it's my USB WiFi adapter.

I wanted to buy this Asus PCE-AC68:
It's already running on the fastest dual-band AC1900 protocol: that's Wireless-N up to 600mbps and Wireless-AC up to 1300mbps (AC3200 doesn't really count cause that's just a single 600mbps Wireless-N 2.4GHz band and 2 1300mbps Wireless-AC 5GHz bands). Plus, it has 3 antenna which can optionally be stationed on a separate base, away from the desktop if need be to be place somewhere with the best reception! Plus, you know that it packs a punch with networking performance cause they had to give it its own heat sink, that red thing that looks soooooo cool! This thing is about $130 here.

I realized that having an ethernet cable instead would be waaaaaaay cheaper plus a lot more reliable than absolutely any wireless solution. The problem is that it's practically impossible to find a 10,000 mile long ethernet cable to connect the router to my desktop which is all the way to my room.

So, I got this instead - a Tenda W900U:
I figured that it's okay since it's already dual-band AC1200: being with a 2.4GHz Wireless-N band up to 300mbps and a 5GHz Wirless-AC band up to 900mbps. It's perfect cause our router is AC1000: the difference being it giving off only 700mbps of Wireless-AC in a 5GHz band. Plus, it only cost me about $25. So, I thought that was cool! I just hope that it's not having an antenna won't be a problem.

My secondary phone has always been an S40 Nokia then always a BlackBerry. It's nice to trade in my 1.2GHz-running 9900 for a Snapdragon 800 device! Also, 1200mAh to 3450mAh is a significant upgrade for me! My 24/7 data is killing my current BlackBerry.

About their software in general, I really believed that BlackBerry 10 and Nokia Symbian^3 had a chance! They both could do the same kinds of apps already that iOS and Andoird could. Though, Nokia gave up on that latter platform and went for Windows. Now, sadly, Nokia's completely going to face out as a name and become Microsoft Mobile. As for BlackBerry 10, I really wanted to get the Z10 because of the cheap data plans worldwide now with the capability of more functional apps like Android and iOS. Chloë going to the Z10 event was sorta a deal breaker but I ended up getting a Samsung Galaxy S4 instead for some reason. Sadly, it was the better choice.

First of all, Nokia may be making monster 41-megapixel PureView cams but yours is still top-of-the-line material.

Well, Nokia is known for their build-quality! Before my Galaxy S4, my primary phone was a Nokia N8. I've been using and loving Nokia forever. My primary phone was always a Nokia except once when it was a Sony Ericsson P990i. Even that was running Nokia's Symbian OS.

I had my hopes up for BlackBerry and Nokia when the BlackBerry 10 and Symbian^3 OSes were released. They could finally keep up with the kinds of apps. They just had to get more developers! Hardware wouldn't be a problem cause right now, the high-end Nokia and BlackBerry phones use Snapdragon 800 processors already which is more than enough!

I'm sad that Nokia gave up on their self-made OS though they're now successful with Windows Phone which isn't (in my opinion) quite as user-editable as Symbian. It's sad cause I wanted to support Nokia and that platform forever. BlackBerry couldn't pull it off the developer thing too. I wanted to get a BlackBerry Z10 (an idea which excited me more after Chloë showed her support for it) but it ended up that, given both brands' scenarios, Android was what I felt was left to fit my needs.

Hell, I was excited when the Nokia X came out. I wasn't satisfied with its specs but it gave me hope that I'd return to Nokia one day. But, it's sad that Microsoft decided to immediately stop that line for obvious reasons, and is slowly transitioning the Nokia name into Microsoft Mobile. At least, that's what rumors say and the upcoming Nokia Lumia 830 announcement will tell.

Though, I'm not keen on having a Windows Phone 8-running primary phone, I'm now really interested in trying out a Lumia 1320 or 1520!

This isn't a complaint against Apple but a comment on evolving technology. Look at how the iPhones are longer than the Galaxy S4 and Note 4, even if by just a little. :|

Yes, I didn't use the S5 as an example because aside from the disappointingly insignificant upgrades, they coupled in a much more significant size discrepancy from the previous model in the hopes to wow us with the S6 that they were able to make it smaller… like what they did with the S4 from the SIII… which looks much better than the S5 I keep mistaking for Grand 2's and China clone phones of something else.

Errr…. The iPhone was the last flagship that wasn't in this bigger size category. I'm saying that that era has gone.

About the size thing. In 2013, Samsung introduced the Galaxy S4. It has a 0.2" bigger screen than the S III but the phone itself was a bit smaller. Now, the S5 is significantly larger than the S4 even though its screen is only 0.1" bigger. I think they did it on purpose to introduce a smaller Galaxy S6 in the hopes of giving the illusion that they've once again perfected the technology of making their phones smaller at a certain screen size.

I was also complaining that because of their little stint, I usually mistake the Galaxy S5 for a China clone phone or Galaxy Grand 2 when I see it in person… and, not to come off boastful, but that's saying something.

274United States!No.7//JDvE
GTX Titan is horribly overpriced. It accomplishes one thing: it separates a load of money from gamers that can do nothing but see Specs on a piece of paper and "DROOL". 12GB is overkill as all fuck for a gaming card for now or the foreseeable future. That's the kind of memory needed on pro level cards doing complex 3d simulations, not for current vidya games.

Hopefully you've learned a valuable lesson before making such an expensive mistake. Always check trusted reviews, benchmarks (and benchmarks are not always everything either), and comments from actual owners. Bigger numbers on the box means absolutely nothing.

Yeah, those are extremely fast but extremely expensive. SATA hasn't been able to keep up with SSD's very effectively, and each time a new revision of SATA is released, the newest SSD's quickly saturate it with little trouble. It's time for a new solution that can keep up, but we are a ways off still. These PCIe cards are extreme..and actually the PCIe connection is what many ultrabook manufacturers (like the macbook air) have moved to in order to get better performance out of their SSD drives.

There's been rumors of it being free or extremely cheap (~$20) to upgrade to entice as many to move to it as possible, but I don't think those rumors hold much weight yet. I think the real benefits will be had from mouse/keyboard users anyway.

Here's a much better article on this "802.11ad"


Samsung talks a good game, but until we see this work in the real world where houses have real walls I'm not buying their claims at all with 60GHz barely being usable from more than a few feet away. Also, there's already a successor to 802.11ac called 802.11ax that runs on the much more realistic 5GHz band and pushes similar speeds plus will run multi-band too. 802.11ax will be the standard everyone else stands behind.

>64-bit 2.3GHz Intel Atom Z3580 processor

Beware of any android tablet running on intel architecture because almost all of the android software available is compiled to run natively on ARM architecture hardware (since most android devices are running ARM based processors). The software will run, but will take a performance hit because it's running in a software based compatibility layer which will also often time stress the battery more too. It's not ideal at all.

Actually, before you said that, and if I was still in that period that I was looking for Android tablets, I would've bought this one. It seems like a great product for an amazing $249 price! Plus, it's Nokia. I really believe in them and would want to support them. Also, I wouldn't be carrying the same Samsung tablets or iPads that everyone else is.

Even when you said that performance might take a hit, I would've been willing to go through that given that it has a powerful enough processor that might make up for the discrepancy. For example, let's say performance will take a 20% hit. That might be the same performance or let's say 10% less than ones that would be running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805. What bothers me is the extra-battery consumption if that's the case though. As you said, that would be an issue but only real-life testing would tell if it really is.
>I wouldn't be carrying the same … iPads that everyone else is.
uhhh, well that N1 is almost an exact clone of the current iPad minis down to the speaker grills and button and port placements and materials used so if you are looking to be unique that's probably not the best tablet to do it with lol

>As you said, that would be an issue but only real-life testing would tell if it really is.

Exactly, gotta wait and see..I know the newest gen intel SOC's are much better, but only time will tell with real world use.

Yeah, I did kinda get that it looked like an iPad Mini… but more with the finish of the iPhone 3G and 3G S. Though, that's not what mattered to me. I didn't wanna be aesthetically different. I just wanted to be that one in a million who use Nokia. :D

But, like I said, I got used to my tablet being my laptop-replacement already - hence, running full Windows like my current Acer Iconica W4. I do really wish that Nokia does a similar one. They've the hardware to with this one anyway.

here's my contribution. Avoid Android 5 like the plague. not that Android 4 series was all that great, because it wasn't. It was pretty shit to be honest. I just got the new Nexus and let me tell you, it might be a great device in and of itself but Android is like all of the worst things about all of the worst operating systems distilled into one everlasting pile of shit. Its like they took everything that everyone hates about Metro from windows 8 and said hey let's make an operating system based on those exact design principles.I'm seriously considering shelling out the extravagant restock fee and getting rid of this piece of shit ASAP.

This baby was announced today. It's a budget phone with a sort of 2013 flagship set of specs and features. Its main attraction is the $160 price tag for the budget-conscious.

>5.5" IGZO Display with 1080p Resolution (400 ppi)

The screen technology is relatively new and is said to have excellent quality, similar to that of AMOLED. As for sharpness, it has the same screen size and resolution as that of the iPhone 6 Plus Retina display.

>64-bit MT6752 Chipset with an Octa-core 2.0GHz Cortex-A53 CPU

MediaTek's processors aren't as robust as the ones made by QualComm, Samsung (both Exynos & Apple A-processors), and others. But, having 8 cores clocked at 2.0GHz theoretically gives you as much power as a phone running the other high-end quad-core processors more or less. My Samsung Galaxy S4 has an AnTuTu benchmark score of a bit over 29,000. The Galaxy Note 3 has one of around 34,000. A device with this specific MediaTek chipset was said to score 36,776. You can safely round that down to 30,000-35,000 and it's still a great performer.

>Mali-T760 GPU

This GPU can be compared to the Adreno 330 GPU. That's saying something considering that the 320 can still handle all if not most of the most graphic-intensive games today in full settings.

>2gb RAM

Multi-tasking shouldn't be a problem. This is the same amount of RAM used in phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8), and the 2014 Motorola Moto X.

>3,140mAh Battery
The Galaxy Note 4 has good battery performance. Considering a 3,220mAh battery powers its 5.7" 2K screen, this battery should do the 5.5" 1080p screen phone just fine. The Snapdragon 805 chipset on the Note 4 is also known for energy efficiency, but the MediaTek processor on this phone shouldn't be too far off to make a big difference.

>13 Megapixel Camera with 1080p Video Recording

4K video recording is high-end material nowadays. But considering the price tag, this is very much okay. The sensor is said to be made by Samsung. So, image quality could be as good as or almost as good as that of the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Neat, but you couldn't pay me to use Android beyond the version 2.x series. Android 4.x was utterly atrocious and 5.x is literally the most unusable and grotesque OS (specifically the GUI and UX in general) I've ever experienced in my life. Android 5 makes Windows 8 look like Aqua in comparison. Google has become more evil than Microsoft ever was.

I bought a Nexus a few weeks ago. Big mistake. Gladly paid the restock fee to get rid of that thing. I've never tried Windows phone (not since it was called Windows Mobile), but I cannot imagine it being worse than what Android has become. Android is really awful. People who actually like it are just deluded. IMHO. Not to mention the entire ecosystem is untrustworthy.

I wouldn't have trusted my Nexus with anything. I wouldn't even be comfortable doing email with it. Every piece of that thing from the hardware, to the firmware, to the drivers to the baseband processor, to the OS and the applications which run on it, all completely untrustworthy. Using it made me feel even dirtier than Windows on the desktop.

Anyone with a cs degree and/or in depth IT experience would tell you the same thing. There's a reason why ever well known and top end "geek" from IT guys, infosec, even developers, not only use Apple products but prefer them. Everyone from Jullian Assange to Larry Wall and half of Google. Go to a conference like RSA or even Defcon, it's a sea of Macs. Check out a cs classroom at any decent university, sea of Macs.

The only downside for some people is the price. Other than that, they are objectively the best systems around. OS X is a remarkably advanced and elegant OS and Apple design both the hardware and ever single bit of software that runs on them. From the firmware to the drivers and everything up from there. This model allows for much more rigorous testing than is possible when twenty five million random companies are publishing their own, third party, drivers for an OS. A Mac, for desktops and workstations, is on the same level as a SUN SPARC server running Solaris. I'm a Linux engineer, but even I will tell you that Solaris is (still) a more robust server in a lot of ways than Linux and just about everything else out there. Hell, XNU even ported a lot of features from Solaris. I'm just going to stop there.

Yes it's a matter of opinion, but facts are facts. Perspective is everything and that's the reason why people who understand computers and computing choose Apple products.

Stick to the HTML, CSS, Javascript and photoshop, oh and uh, video games. All of which I have absolutly no interest in or experience with minus Javascript. Javascript is awesome. I think we can probably both agree on that. That's probably all we could agree on, other than Chloë of course. Let's stick to what we can agree on. I like Windows clients too by the way. What would an incident handler do without them? Are you actually in Romania, by the way? I'm kind of scared now considering that like over half of the cyber criminals I investigate come from Romania. You guys are so good (at fraud) the eBay had to open a separate satellite office in Romania just to teach the local cops how to identify auction fraud and other cyber crime. Are you from one of these impoverished towns where kids drive around $80,000 vehicles? Educated people + no job prospects = life of crime.

- full Windows 8.1 64-bit OS (MS Surface Pro 3)
- 8.3" 1920x1200 IPS Display (Lenovo ThinkPad 8)
- 1.7GHz Dual-Core (w/3.3GHz turbo-boost) Intel Core i7-4650U (MS Surface Pro 3)
- 2gb DDR3 nVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE 128-bit (Razer EDGE Pro)

- superspeed USB 3.0 port (Razer EDGE Pro)
- keyboard with touchpad dock, with built-in 500gb external HDD (ASUS Transformer Book T100TA)
- microHDMI port (Acer Iconia W4)

It's too bad that the 640LE's the most powerful GPU that I know exists for a full Windows 8 tablet though.
This would be good in the Lulz thread too, but it's more tech related and it left me in tears.

Also, I have the Fnatic edition of that mouse. I love it to bits!
b-but…u actually believe cas latency (in this case 9ns vs 7ns) makes a real difference in games or anything in the real world? Even in synthetic benchmarks there is little difference. You might get an extra half a frame per second if you are lucky lol

Besides, you also need to understand that the improvements in modern intel memory controllers have all but eliminated any performance boost you could have gotten:

So I totally get choosing some cool looking ram if you are building a gaming PC that will have it on display, but I'm not into that flashy window look at all which should be very apparent by the case I chose. The define r5 will be silent and cool running and while I will keep my cable management clean and neat, I don't worry about making sure everything matches perfectly or not, because that just doesn't matter to me.

The images don't wanna load so I couldn't fully appreciate the link. I was gonna get an 1866 CL8 before but my friend told me that a 1600 CL7 is always the more ideal. He said that that's why they were always out of stock in the stores I was looking for RAM at before, and that's why 1600 CL7 is overclockable to 1866 CL7. In other words, I was brainwashed.

I'm a fan of flashy looking stuff. But, I don't take that all the way to the inside. The only reason I chose that RAM is because all the other 1600 CL7 didn't have prices.

This should help then

Basically the difference between cl9 and cl7 and also any combination of speeds whether it be 1866 or 1600 or 2133 will ultimately lead to mostly non-existent performance gains in the real world…in fact if you look closely at the graphs you will notice that the 1600 cl9 is slightly faster in this test than either the cl8 or cl7 lol, but again it's so minor that it doesn't matter.

That's why I always recommend just getting the amount of memory you need and from a reputable company as first priorities. If building a gaming system where you are trying to match components for display then by all means seek out the appropriate ram to complete the look in your case.

Why're CL8 and 9 faster if the whole purpose of the spec was to be the other way around? Now, I feel a bit like I may have even gotten the wrong thing.

I've a closed case. Anyways, this is my RAM.
This is funny but it's also (apparently real) tech.

Well if you look closely even the 1333 performed slightly better than 1600..and this is a real world benchmark…BUT when you are talking about a difference of less than .3 fps between the slowest and fastest result in the group, what you are looking at is easily well within a margin of error which basically tells me that no matter which spec ram they used, the results with pretty much exactly the same.

Sure, you spent a little more on your ram, but you got some nice looking ram too :)
I wouldn't worry much, but when you mentioned it I wanted to make sure that you (and anyone else reading) were better informed in the future, at least with how ram is handled on modern intel systems. I'm not sure if it makes real differences on amd, but I'm sure if you go digging you might find the answer. My guess is even on a less efficient memory controller that the difference in fps would never exceed more than a a couple fps anyway.

This could solve our energy needs long into the future. LOL

I just meant that if the stats were randomly fluctuating, then I'd get exactly what you mean that the CL doesn't matter. It's just that there's a pattern exactly opposite to what's supposed to be.

Anyways, I'm not worried. I got mine for 4,000 PhP. $100 is 4,400 PhP. Also, I didn't go for the design. That was the only one of that spec available but I'm extremely happy with it… as far as being happy with anything RAM-related goes. Haha.

My Beats are giving up on me already.
564United States!No.7//JDvE
I've owned the ATH-M50's for several years, they are the older model without the removable cable or new color scheme, but are the same headphones where it counts. They are great, but just be aware that if you are used to the boomy bass on the beats, that the audio technicas don't provide that same sound. However, overall they sound much better than the beats sound quality wise and are an incredible value in their price range. It just proves that if you want that punchy boomy bass in a set of headphones, that they have yet to figure out how to have it and good quality mids and highs to go along with it. I like base, but not at the expense of the rest of the sound. Beats are overpriced for what they are. You are paying for the name and the design. Maybe it's just me, but I'm more about the sound than how they look on my head.

>I'm a boomy bass guy. :'(
Fair enough
But you probably gotta get some more overpriced beats then…There's probably some other brands with that boomy bass (that leads to muddy mids and highs), but I'm not sure which ones. Real talk: The companies that are serious about sound don't compromise it by boosting bass to ridiculous levels at the cost of everything else. I also realize sound is a personal preference.

Xiaomi launches 40-inch Full HD Mi TV 2 for $320

Xiaomi has announced a new 40-inch model as part of its Mi TV 2 line-up. As the younger kin of the 49-inch Mi TV 2 with 4K video support, the new 40-inch Mi TV 2 model is more of an affordable full HD version. Xiaomi’s new 40-inch Mi TV 2 will be available on March 31 from Xiaomi website.

The new Mi TV 2 model features a 40-inch SHARP SDP X-GEN display panel with full HD pixel resolution and LED backlight mode with 5000:1 contrast ratio. Xiaomi has housed a quad-core 1.45 GHz MStar 6A908 mobile chipset paired with Mali-450MP4 GPU for graphics.

With mere 14.4 mm bezel the Mi TV 2 supports H.265 with 10-bit hardware decoding. It offers support for several file formats such as H.264, H.265, MPEG4, FLV, MOV, AVI, MKV, TS, MP4, and more.

Packing 1.5 GB DDR3 RAM, it offers only 8 GB on-board storage. By default it runs the MIUI TV operating system based on Android. Xiaomi recently promised to bring the Mi TV in India and that’s how India might be one of the major markets after China to get this new 40-inch Full HD Mi TV 2 model.

You guys have got to see this! The idea is that when a Windows 10 phone is connected to a monitor with a mouse and keyboard, it gives you a desktop-esque interface. Plus, by the looks of it, apps like MS Office are "transformed" into the ones for the desktop!
also, in theory we should be able to wrap the chlomo site as a universal app (for both mobile and desktop) and then you could get notifications when someone makes a new post in the current thread, and maybe even more complex stuff like notifications when a new set is posted

All Americans with a tight budget, looking for a great phone,
take a look at this:

Best Buy is selling Verizon's original Motorola Moto G for only $19.99! That's right, there's no contract included or whatever.

For only freakin' $19.99, you get:
- an HD (720x1280) IPS LCD display
- 2070mAh battery (note that the Galaxy SIII has a 2100mAh one on a less power-efficient processor)
- power-efficient but powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
- 5 Megapixel main camera with autofocus and flash, and a secondary video call camera
- 720p HD video recording at 30fps

- It only has 8gb of non-expandable storage.
- It's locked to Verizon (but since you only spend $19.99 for the entire thing. You've the budget to have it unlocked).

Samsung introduces 2TB SSD drives in 850 EVO and PRO series

Samsung expanded its 850 SSD series with 2TB drives, in both the PRO and EVO lineups. The company says it has seen increased demand for 500GB and bigger SSDs and the 2TB drives are a “strong driver into the era of multi-terabyte SSD solutions.”

The 2TB versions Samsung 850 EVO and 850 PRO are available in 50 countries right now.
They are pricy though – $800 for the EVO and $1,000 for the PRO – but on the plus side they’ll push the 1TB drives lower. A 1TB 850 EVO is currently $380 on Amazon.

The difference in price stems from different warranty – the SLC-based PRO gets a 10 year or 300TB written guarantee, while the MLC EVO get half for both (5yr/150TB). The PRO drive should also be slightly faster than the EVO, though past results have shown the differences to be pretty minor.

The new drives are built on Samsung’s 3D V-NAND technology and contain 128 individual flash chips. The chips themselves have 128 gigabit capacity spread across 32 layers (hence 3D). The SSDs feature upgraded MHX controllers and a whopping 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM (four 4 gigabit chips built on 20nm process).

Samsung is promising new high-capacity mSATA and M.2 drives too for laptops and mini PCs that support them. The 850 series currently tops out at 1TB in those form factors.

In about 11 days, the new iPhone will be announced. Hate them or love them, Apple's iPhone event is one of the most anticipated events of the year.

The sucky thing is that you can only view the livestream via a Mac or iOS device. This year, they decided to include Windows into the mix. The funny bit is that you can only do so via the Mircrosoft Edge browser installed on Windows 10.

It makes me wonder if Apple and Microsoft had some sort of trying-to-be-subtle marketing agreement for the latter.

Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch goes official with rotating bezel, Tizen OS

After teasing it a couple of weeks ago, Samsung finally spilled the beans on the hotly anticipated Gear S2 smartwatch. The high-end Tizen OS wearable device with rotating bezel and IP68 rating will be on display during IFA in Berlin in two different variants - Gear S2 and Gear S2 classic.

The sportier Samsung Gear S2 will be available with dark gray case with black silicon band, or silver case with white silicon band. The classic model on the other hand, will feature a black case and matching leather band.

Specs-wise, Samsung Gear S2 features 1GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory. The display of the smartwatch is a 1.2” fully circular Super AMOLED unit with a resolution of 360 x 360 pixels and 302ppi.

Connectivity options for the smartwatch include Wi-Fi: 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and NFC. A variant with 3G network connectivity and e-SIM will also be available.

Physical measures of Samsung Gear S2 are 42.3 × 49.8 × 11.4mm, while its weight tips the scale at 47 grams. The classic model is a tad more elegant with measures of 39.9 × 43.6 × 11.4mm and a weight of 42 grams. A 250mAh battery will power both devices - it is rated to last for 2-3 days of regular usage.

The 3G variant of the smartwatch will pack a larger 300mAh battery, which will last for two days of regular use. The measures of this particular variant are 44.0 x 51.8 x 13.4mm, while its weight comes in at 51 grams.

I wanted to get the same one I had, but it is 3x the price of what I paid for it when I bought it, and 3x the price of what I paid for the one I got today
well, the new one looks pretty cool as well
I didn't even know that Cooler Master made mice
I really like it actually
The old one was driving me crazy because the click wasn't working properly
And I didn't know either, I just found out when looking for one to buy

But if anyone is interested in buying a mouse, I recommend the CM Mizar, and its probably the best you can get for the price

That's not the question I'd be asking. They aren't "throwing in" anything. They're just selling you more shit. The costs are included and carefully hidden in the sales pitch. Tell to STFU and give you the TCO. No monthly payment bullshit, I want the TCO and I want it now!

That type of form factor is really common in .edu environments. It's often setup with terminal services / as a thin client, etc. I have a slightly different use case.

I was thinking of putting my orange Cougar LED fans on my Hyper 212X cooler, getting a couple of orange LED Thermaltake 140mm (or 120mm) fans for the exhausts, and a 200mm orange LED Thermaltake fan for intake right in front.

Makes sense. Haha. I don't have one either (yet… I think) but die-hard gamers find it a must.


Damn. That thing actually outperforms the new i7-6700K a bit.
You shouldn't get a k cpu if you're going to put it on a mobo that doesn't allow overclock.
I would strongly recommend getting a 390x and a better PSU, like a 600w Seasonic.
Also, I haven't heard good things about that SSD, the Crucial mx100 is only 200 more.

I'd either get a Z170 or just a 6600/6500 if he doesn't want to overclock
If he buys the 6600k, remember it doesn't come with the stock cooler.

Sorry for the late reply.
>K CPU with non-overclocking mobo
Haha. Funny thing, that build was supposed to be a "cheap build". So, it started off with a Core i3-6300. Then, the GPU was supposed to be some cheaper but still powerful enough one and ended up being an RX 480. Since the difference between the 6300 and i5-6600K in Hungary wasn't too big, it just became "Meh, why not a 6600K". That's why the board doesn't match. Haha. But, thanks.

Noice! I really like the look on MSi's cards lately. My friend was picking between that and the XFX one. His budget was 350-400 AUD. It was 429 AUD and the XFX was 399 AUD. He said he didn't care about the looks anyway since both cards were practically the same in performance and both had dual-fan coolers. Unfortunately, the fans didn't work. -_-

That's one sweet ride! :O If God told me to choose between any of them super cars or a Land Cruiser 200, I'll always get the latter though. :3 Saving up for that in a customized rust orange paint job.

Also, there's a car thread in case you're interested: >>725
To be honest the MSI was the only one they had on stock besides the reference. I wanted the Sapphire Nitro+ at first. But I'm really happy with how it performs, and after looking around for a bit I think it's the best AiB card. I'm glad I didn't get something like a Gigabyte G1, that one gets really hot.
oh and the fans didn't work? did he RMA'd it?
He's having it exchanged for the MSi one today.

Xiaomi Mi Mix (middle): the concept of a bezel-less phone is actually a good one but I have to admit that when I realized that the screen size of the phone was at 6.4", I was turned off. But now that I know that despite having that screen size, because of the lack of bezel space, that phone with its massive screen is still only as big as an iPhone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL, I think it's darn amazing! :D

Back in 2013, HD screens and quad-core processors weren't as mainstream. Lower end and mid-tier phones still either had dual-core processors except for some more expensive ones. Screens were at 480x800 or, rarely, 540x960 unless you had a smaller phone which was most likely 320x480 or 240x320. That year, Motorola released the first Moto G phone. It brought a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and an HD screen for only $179 (for 8GB and $199 for 16GB). Only catch was it didn't have a microSD slot.

Moto G2: this time, there was a microSD slot and a 4G LTE version was available.

Moto G3: 4G LTE became a standard. The processor was bumped up to a 64-bit Snapdragon 410. RAM was bumped up to 2GB. At this point, HD screens and quad-core processors became a norm even for almost all low-tier phones.

Moto G4 and G4 Plus: both phones were big at 5.5". I really didn't care about these ones.

The Moto G5 was the brand's return to having higher-end features at a low cost. The G5 runs the new Snapdragon 430 processor (which gives the phone an overall AnTuTu performance benchmark rating of 45,000 which is almost the same as the Samsung Galaxy S5's 48,000), has a full HD screen, and has a 2800mAh battery for only $179.

The Moto G5 Plus is a legit flagship killer. It has the same specs as the Moto G5 with a fullHD 5.2" screen but an even more powerful Snapdragon 625 processor, a base of 3GB of RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, and an amazing camera for its price point. The camera has the Samsung Galaxy S7's 12 megapixel sensor with dual-pixel autofocus technology and an f1.7 aperture. It doesn't have optical image stabilization like the Galaxy S7 though but neither did the iPhone 6. All this, you can have for only $229.

Sorta. Yeah.
I just noticed now that the pic is wrong.

Also, I meant that the regular G5 costs $199, not $179.

I wanted an 1800X at first. But, I saw that the 1800X and 1700X thermals were significantly higher than the 1700's. So, I wanted the 1700. Then, I saw that the 1600X (and at times, even the 1500X) beat the 1700 in gaming. So, I sacrificed 2 cores and 4 threads for a sweet spot between gaming and daily tasks. Just saw videos awhile that gaming difference between the 1600X and 1800X was a matter of like 3 fps. So, I'm happy with this CPU!

I was gonna say that you should've bought the Ryzen R7 1700 then for thermal reasons. But, since you're not gonna be hardcore gaming and won't overclock, just get a decent cooler for the 1800X! You shouldn't have a problem. What cooler do you use anyway? I use a 2nd hand Wraith Spire I bought. Can't really say it's 2nd hand though since a guy got it with a 1600 and never used it.

Thanks! That's the beauty of it: it's small on the outside but it gives you much space to work with inside cause of the separate compartments. Plus, the motherboard tray can ne dettached so that you can work on it from outside the case and easily put it back mounted already. Finally, the airflow is just superb!

I was thinking of getting some kick-ass looking cooler later on. I'ma wait for upgrade brackets to get to this country.

I'm got an Xpredator Cube (orange edition :P): https://www.aerocool.com.tw/au/chssis/pgs-b/xpredator-cube
According to the site, I can fit air coolers up to 187mm tall if I do not mount a fan on top. But, I intend to. So, the height limit for my cooler is 162mm now.

I was planning of getting a Cooler Master V8 GTS cooler but have no idea how I'll get a bracket for AM4 in this damn country. Furthermore, I found out that it's 166mm tall. So, if I get it, I'd have to forego mounting a fan on top.

So, I'll settle for a Hyper 212 LED Turbo that already has support for my 1600X out of the box.
I had a Hyper 212X. It was 158mm tall. I thought the Hyper 212 LED Turbo was gonna be the same but it's 163mm tall - essentially 1mm over the limit if I still want to mount the fan on top.

The case comes with a 200mm orange LED fan. That was what I was going to mount on top. When I read fan specs (including that of the normal fan the case includes), I see that their thickness is 25mm. The thickness of this big fan that I plan to mount on top is only 20mm. Does that mean that since that is the fan I'm planning to mount on top, my clearance for the air cooler goes from 162mm to 167mm since the fan is 5mm thinner? If that's the case, I can go with the Hyper 212 LED Turbo with no problem.
Nice! I'm looking into a 1600 myself If only I had the money for cpu+ram+mobo
why did you get a 1600x and not a 1600?
my old i5 2500 has been showing it's age for a while now
958United States!CHLOE6iOUo
>only I had the money for cpu+ram+mobo
Yeah. It's a tough time considering a new CPU now needs new RAM and mobo, mostly cause of the DDR4 transition.

>why did you get a 1600x and not a 1600?

Sure, the 1600 has a lower 65w TDP and a stock cooler. But, I was planning of using my Hyper 212X with an AM4 bracket anyway (though I ended up buying someone's 1600's Wraith Spire that he wasn't using cause my bracket was not correct). In the future, I'll buy a better air cooler but I don't plan of overclocking any time soon. With that being said, 30w difference isn't too high in my opinion and I'd rather have the higher clockspeed (boost reaching 4.0GHz) at stock.

Overall too, I checked the gaming benchmarks. The 1600X was relatively better than the 1600 and even the 1700. The latter was the first one I was going for since the 1700X and 1800X apparently get hot too easily. But since I'm not encoding video 100% of the time and want a better gaming experience, I opted for the 1600X over the 1700. Not a bad thing too considering it's cheaper.
ah, makes sense if you don't want to do the overclock yourself
I also have a CPU cooler that I was planning to use with am4 (that's actually the reason why I bought it last year, when they said am3 coolers would fit the am4 socket) but oh well

>I thought the Hyper 212 LED Turbo was gonna be the same but it's 163mm tall - essentially 1mm over the limit if I still want to mount the fan on top.
chances are it will still fit, my corsair case has a 150mm clearance and my cpu cooler is 152mm, and I still have a few mm of clearance
960United States!CHLOE6iOUo
It's not that I don't want to do it myself. It's that I don't want to do it yet cause if I'm getting over 60fps, I'm not looking to go even farther. Haha.

Oh. Thanks! I actually solved that problem a while back. It said it had clearance for 187mm coolers without a fan and 162mm with a fan. So, I saw that Cooler Master, Cougar, Aercocool, Thermaltake, and most common manufacturers make their fans at 25mm (Noctua even makes them at 30mm). The 200mm front orange LED fan is, for some reason, only 20mm thin. So, if I take away the 20mm thickness from the 187mm headroom without a fan, that'd actually leave me 167mm with a fan.

Last week, I bought a 512GB Toshiba M.2 NVMe SSD. It was idling at 65-67 (occasionally hitting the highest 60s) then hitting 77-79 when testing for read-write speeds. The curious thing was that gaming brought it down to the high 50's.

So, I tried force setting the fan speed of the GPU. 35% saw low 50's. 50% saw 47-48 degrees. 75% saw a minimum of 45. I'm guessing that's as low as it would go. At 75% fan speed, testing for read-write speeds got me at a high of only 60 degrees. That and some research lead me to believe that either the GPU allowed no airflow to the M.2 slot that was right behind it, or that the GPU was breathing heat into my SSD.

I seem to be sticking a bit to the latter cause my temporary solution was to set a fan behave the same way as the preset curve except that it'll start at 30% when the GPU is idle instead of 0. Interesting thing is that it stays at the low 50's then goes to the high 50's when I game. It goes back to the low 50's when I stop.

I've someone giving me a PCI-E triple fan I can place in the PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot below my GPU. But, think getting an EK-M.2 heatspreader would be a big help? It might take them weeks to deliver to me though. It's not sold locally.

Woah, they actually did it: http://m.gsmarena.com/apple_unveils_iphone_x-news-27227.php
I'm actually more amazed that they used an AMOLED screen over the fact that they did a bezeless thing.

I solved that problem: idling at 47 to 52 degrees.

Oooooh! Love the board! Why didn't you go a bit more for a 1500X though? Just gonna overclock?

Maybe, you should get: >>975 :P

I've a… Surface… Pro! :D
yeah, it's running @ 3.8 ghz a bit over 1.34 vcore. might try to get the voltage a little lower
i can't justify the crazy high prices iphones get here for the kind of use I give to my phone :(

Oh my god 🤣🤣

What's your cooler? Try getting it to 4.0GHz. You'll be real happy. Haha.

That product isn't as lewd as I thought it would be.
I'm just using the stock cooler, that's why I didn't want to push it that hard even though the 4 cores ryzen don't heat up too much
Like I said in >>959 I have a pretty much brand new Optima CNPS10X that won't fit am4 :(
The whole AM4 bracket thing was a nightmare. But, it's a new socket. What are we to expect? Had to sell my Hyper 212X to a friend. Saw someone selling his stock Ryzen R5 1600 cooler for $10 so I bought it and am still using it. I'm planning to upgrade to a Cryorig H7 Quad Lumi though. I was just admiring how awesome it looks when I read it apparently might also be the best-performing ait cooler to date. Nice bonus for me.
