    Video Cards

    I wonder how many video cards were in there. https://www.theregister.com/2021/07/19/malaysian_police_crush_crytpomining_compiuters_with_steamroller/

    Samsung 980 PRO PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD

    Per the Samsung spec sheets 870 EVO uses Samsung V-NAND 3bit MLC and 870 QVO uses Samsung 4bit MLC V-NAND.

    Windows 11

    MS cannot even get the TEAMs to work right. One day we had like 35 people and the stupid system was down. It must have cost more than $50K in lost productivity and opportunity. I would not trust those MS bozos with a 50GB online OS/app VMs any day.

    I know, but it was not in 2017 or whenever. :( That 10-bits did not work out anyways. According to the Windows Report I have 2200 video units, whatever that corresponds with.

    Video Cards

    Thanks. I was advised to get the graphics card for workstation use since it contained 10 bits/color. (Of course I don't have the crystal balls so Virus was a not a consideration.) I don't want to open the computer again to figure out which model, but it is small with one fan and no power...

    Video Cards

    I suppose the next question is whether the NVideo is still progressing R&D to make better cards or if that will be delayed. I don't like the idea of buying mid-2020 RTX technology in late 2021/early 2020 if it will soon be obsolete. What would you do on the Quattro?

    Checking TBW on WD Blue

    I just got some WD/SnaZDsik Blue shipments in July. I was testing with the HDTuner and also data integrity tests in a Nexto. I think it wrote until full (3.7TB) and then a separate CFe copy/write to battery depletion at 1.7TB. Are you saying this is not accurate?

    Video Cards

    What's the deal with video cards in 2021? Last year there was some crap about the Virus or the cryptolith miners, and now six months later there are very few for sale and prices are exhorbitant. I am using an archaic card in the 3950X that was from the old Win 7 system, and then the later...

    Can't you backup the phone every day to your giant NAS or SAN or whatever? Do you trust your data to the Google more than giving it to the Apple?

    Windows 11

    I don't want any computer accounts. I suspect 10 will become 11 without it or they can just not update my PC, which would be fine. :D I always provide the home phone when a number is needed. However, only a few real people use it. I surely don't want another stupid password just to get into...

    Windows 11

    I accept needing Win 11 in 2025, but will a 12th generation Intel desktop CPU/chipset released in 2022 also require Windows 11? If I understand correctly I'd have to buy Windows 11 pro and reinstall on a laptop that was desiged for the 11 homer to use remotely and never with internet. I'm...

    dSLR thread

    No, they are not ending sales. There will be no new cameras designed/introduced. Some cameras like the Nikon F6 were produced for more than a decade after digital cameras appeared. The big problem is the lack of new lens designs or inferior lens designs that don't replace the old ones. Some...

    Windows 11

    IIRC all new CPUs after January 2017 (e.g., Intel 7 series) were crippled so that would not naturally work with anything but 10. Won't they do the same with 11? I don't see the relevance of MS Office or whatver is in 365 now, or is that a requirement to insatll the WINDOWS now?

    Mirrorless Cameras (MILC) and Lenses

    I use the Sony CFe cards in the R5, but I suppose the R6 can more easily get by with SDxC UHS-II cards. I suggest that you think and plan more, and learn to shoot less. That will save time and you will obtain better results in the long run.

    Why are you shooting 2500 frames in a session? Are there a dozen or more subjects, like some events and each needs multiple options?

    I was finally able to upgrade the BIAS and enable the 2.0. Now the secondary is fit for Windows 11, not that it will likely be around in 2025.

    Windows 11

    Yet what diabolicals will they unleash for future processors? For example will 12th gen iNtel or the next (7000?) Ryzens only work with Windows 11? That could be disastrous if 11 will no longer support some of my old programs that are no longer in existence. :sick::cry:

    You must be confusing me with that radio dude. ;) I have older perpetual PS versions that ran on Win 7 and also on Win 10. I use OEM Canon or Nikon software for conversions/focus compositing, then PTGui and some other finishing work in PS. I tried DXO and C1 for my Sony, due to the crapitude...

    Mirrorless Cameras (MILC) and Lenses

    I avoided the early Canon R stuff altogether, though I have plenty of bad experiences with the Sony a7 system as well to draw on. I'm now using the R5 and it is decent, but it suffers from the inherent PITA and critical imitations of the MILD in general. First and foremost it is a video camera...

    So it works like that with any SAS controller, like my old LSI? I might get one out of curiosity.

    Windows 11

    I was able to enable the 2.0 on one BIOS (the older, higher grade x570 mothersboard with 5950X) and passed the Win 11 checker. The 3950X on the newer x570 board still didn't accept Win 11. It only has 32GB 3600 speed RAM and two 500GB NVMe drives (one 980 Pro and one 970 Evos +) as it is a...

    Arrrgh! I am getting a vote of no confidence from the Windows 10 in two computers. Thermopyle is not up to 2.0 level. One setup is only a month old, although the CPU is obsolete 3950X. I have an ominious feeling that 11 will be like the Google phones spying on you and witholding your...

    I received the 3950X in January 2020 and then replaced it with the 5950X a few months ago. Neither create very much heat with the Nocturnal heat-sink fans. The D15 was originally on the 3950X and then used with the 5950X. The 3950X is now in another box with an old D14 modified with a kit to...

    I'd replace it anyway, so maybe one can get lucky with that. Of course by the time the Rhyzome is actually available, the source may be identified as something else. I don't know how it can be confirmed that I am using the post reply during the edit window. Maybe that is also better with...
