SMART isn't always reliable, at the very least back up anything important off the drive.
i believe he means re-binding keys.
could be motherboard too, i've had friends/ex-housemates systems do that. on the mobo side, disabling all power management in the BIOS fixed...
each build has two numbers, for some stupid reason.
power settings in windows, crank up the idle timer for hard drives to 60 minutes or so.
this has been an annoying 'feature' since XP
Just as a possible alternative, quit or minimise these programs and see what happens - right before i left AMD for my Nvidya 970 i saw oddness...
he likely meant performance per watt, myself and my brother do that as well.
after dealing with 7970/280x crossfire and the heat/temps that...
This is what i use to delete system partitions, since windows often wont let you....
Nice to see winners scattered across the globe - congrats guys!
at a recent LAN, we noticed from my 64GB USB 3 thumbdrive that all the win10 systems transferred files a lot faster. Win 7 was the slowest, most...
well when maximum is anything but the highest recorded number, it brings into question the validity/usefulness of the test.
are these results backwards?
the original testing was Nvidia + intel IGP, seeing ~10% gains. Definitely going to be popular, considering how common intel/AMD IGP's are.
apparently we have 72,040 members at present.
lets blame this one on garden gnomes and move along then, seems to be fixed.
someone needs to make a benchmark with a few variations:
0%/50%/100% async, for direct comparisons.
click your name on the left of your post, its the number in the link. you're 153156, i'm 1746
those numbers are definitely after the porting to the 'new' forum. I cant remember the full story, but the old crew (w1zzard, urlyin, erocker?)...
You've been very unclear.
my CPU isnt even on that website (athlon XP 2500, barton core iirc)
scary when you see things like "1800% faster in multi threading"
what on earth are you talking about?
cant remember tbh - but this is its second forum. Fuzzy on the details but i recall when the original was ported across to this one, and...
actually, some hardware never got faster. Just did benchmarks on someones 'new' quad core AMD (FM2 socket) and it actually came up slower than a...
if you wanna feel old, try and remember what PC you had when you signed up here, and compare its performance to modern day stuff.
i had a PC with vista (i know, i know) decide windows wasnt activated and locked me out of the system, effectively keeping my homework from me.
