    Setting 4k sector size on NVMe SSDs: does performance actually change?

    I do not think it matters for SSD's really, as those do not write in sequential manner. They write in rather random behavior based on free space and wear level mitigation techniques. Yes it applied to spindles, hands down 4K is a default... 512 were for floppy magnetics and super early five...

    The official thermal paste thread

    Stick with MX-2 or MX-4 and call it a day. Seriously NT-H2 is one of the worst pastes for long term usage.

    Norton crypto

    There's no such thing as an exKGB officer, and nobody would ever allow him to develop his company without the tight cooperation of internal organs... to say it in more precise vintage manner. Kaspersky is banned for usage in our government organizations, as advised by MoD. Knowing the mentality...

    Norton crypto

    Introduce? What if it was theirs from beginning. I support the the idea that most of viral/trojan codes was and is made by antivirus companies itself, especially Kaspersky.

    The Power of AI Arrives in Upcoming NVIDIA Game-Ready Driver Release with Deep Learning Dynamic Super Resolution (DLDSR)

    This is the only and ultimate way of getting proper AA without ill side effects like shimmering, vaseline smearing etc... especially if the game doesn't support any of it.

    TOPPING E50 DAC + L50 Amplifier Stack

    There the thing, that I trust Amir with his experience and gear more than any sticker on something, that's more likely just a sticker and nobody bats an eye in those labs even without powering up the units, just like WHQL drivers are being stamped.
