    ADATA Launches XPG GAMMIX S11 Pro and SX6000 Lite SSDs

    Should land somewhere between $120 and $140 in US. Its predecessor, S11 is currently selling around $100-110 in US, or $120-130 in EU and CES for 480GB model. I bought a smaller 240GB SX8200 not too long ago, but now I'm thinking I should sell it and get a 512GB S11 Pro instead. Quality is good...

    Ok, got it. Had to enable/disable high-contrast mode for all changes to take effect. Now it's better!

    How's your dark mode is better than my dark mode, J? :banghead: My menus and toolbars always stay beige, and the highlighted items in treeview have light background and white text, which is unreadable o_O Tried to change it several times with different main/highlight colors and different...

    Anyone here knows how to get the 1809 update?

    Just got an update this afternoon. So far so good. Sound is working, documents are all in place, no blurry icons in taskbar(at least for now). Dark mode sucks balls: awful contrast in Explorer menu, not usable with custom color schemes, not all UI elements follow the scheme even if they are...

    Do you have insider previews enabled?

    Anyone here knows how to get the 1809 update?

    Basically all power-saving features are turned off. CPU is at max possible P-state, peripheral devices always on, sleep and hibernation disabled. Initially it was added to Win10 Pro for Workstations, but can be manually enabled through powercfg. EDIT: blogpost for a corresponding insider build...

    Corsair is selling dummy RGB RAM sticks

    Lol. I think that's what I paid for my 2x8 DDR4 a few years back (used).

    Is Turing the first step that nvidia took to bring their GPUs to consoles in the future ?

    Jesus fucking christ, do I really have to explain to you the difference between the actual physical memory(chips located on PCBs) and memory addressing physical or virtual (the thing you both meant in your posts)? I'm outta here.

    Is Turing the first step that nvidia took to bring their GPUs to consoles in the future ?

    And? That's the whole fucking point I'm trying to make : consoles don't move data around, it's all in one big shared pool.

    What we are talking about is fundamental differences between PC and consoles, which you seem to be unable to grasp. You still cling to the fact that CPU is the same, GPU is the same, and oh-my it even has and OS, just like a PC... But the difference is in how it all works together. No amount of...

    Dream machine on my wishlist

    4K random for most users is irrelevant. If you do gaming and multimedia - you won't notice the difference. I'm still on an old Samsung XP941, which is relatively slow PCIE2.0 drive, and in any real-world scenario did I notice that it's any slower than my new ADATA SX8200, which on paper and in...

    Dream machine on my wishlist

    It has no M.2 slot, but it does support NVME. You can buy a PCI-e adapter for your machine when you need it, or better: sell that H110 board and get a decent B150 board w/ M.2 slot and 4 RAM slots. Used SKL/KBL boards are cheap nowadays. Not too long ago I sold a B250M-HDV board for $70 or so...

    Dream machine on my wishlist

    No. Just get a normal SSD. $100 can get you something decent and big nowadays, like a 480-512GB NVME SSD. Just yesterday I've got a 480GB Kingston A1000 for one of my customers (he wanted to upgrade his 2013 macbook pro retina). It's trending at $110-120 right now, but I was lucky to find it on...

    GPU-Z on Steam?

    But that's what security is all about - you miss it once and you are f#$%ed. Even computer-literate people do stupid things. We had a field tech who was stupid enough to disable UAC on a work laptop and install some shady music streaming software, which got him infected with a cryptomining...
