    Virtual memory with large RAM

    On a side note, the AMD64 screenshot above also appears in Internals 6th, but with one notable difference: The image is cropped to remove the "AMD64" line. lol I hope Russunovich didn't do that. https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/solutions/digital-marketing/

    Virtual memory with large RAM

    The following thoughts have been on my mind for quite some time, I've read Geoff Chappell's blog and atm am about halfway through Windows Internals 6th by Russunovich, and it's brilliant, I really recommend it. Mark used to piss Microsoft right off so I have great respect for him. Just to set...

    Choosing memory configuration, need help figuring out which is the best

    How about you stop posting before I start posting screenshots from Winternals 6 and embarrass you. One of the most common mistakes from novice developers such as yourself is not knowing what a pointer is. Typically the new developer assumes the address being cast to is in RAM, when in fact...

    Choosing memory configuration, need help figuring out which is the best

    Developers work with API's, not the architecture. You go away and read something, Winternals would be good start., That's is a common misconception held by owners of Intel rigs at the time. Up until C2D the only Intel chip which could handle over 4GB was Xeon. AMD partners on the other...

    Choosing memory configuration, need help figuring out which is the best

    There is no 4GB RAM limit in 32bit Windows. The RAM limit is architecture dependant. There is a 4GB address space limit per process. but that's not the same thing as RAM. Your 2^32 calculation assumes the OS is a flat memory model with direct access to RAM, which is not the case. Windows...

    Choosing memory configuration, need help figuring out which is the best

    Windows XP supports up to 64GB or 128GB of RAM dependant on hardware. True.....but u know.....always nice to have more if u can use it.. :) You can keep XP and still take advantage of 8GB if you like, by uninstalling SP2. Provided the board has a remapping option 8GB will then be available...

    UEFI vs Legacy boot mode

    You're all good. With UEFI boot partitions can be over 2TB, but that means reformatting drive to GPT.........prob not something you'd want to do....(or me :)) You aren't missing out on much., as mentioned above. Maybe Secure Boot......bleh :P

    Warn: AMD Radeon Crimson Uninstaller can ruin your system partition table!

    The MBR was corrupted, not the partition table. I had a look at your mediafire folder, just for future reference if you had let Test Disk scan the entire drive it would have rebuilt the MBR using the boot partition and extended partitions it found (the green ones). Anyway fwiw your SSD is...

    ISRT refuses to see my Samsung SM951 128GB M.2 drive

    I would appreciate it if you didn't make assumptions about what I think, and if you're going to accuse me of contradicting myself, at least have the decency to quote me. There is only 1 Cache Hierarchy. The "Hierarchy" is every level of cache on the platform, it always starts with CPU which is...

    App Claims to Blunt Intel's Compiler Edge on AMD Machines

    That's why Cinebench is a perfect test to run on AMD. I suspect this is meant to work like BDC which unblocks x87on Bulldozer based CPU's (though I don't know how this Intel Compiler software would do it). I've tested a patched Phenom II and Piledriver on Super Pi, Cinebench and Games like...

    AMD Announces Radeon Crimson Software

    Depends how deep you want to dive, knowing a bit about debugging would help, as well as having a good grasp of what goes on under the hood of Windows. In basic terms a TDR means the GPU stopped responding, it was given job to do and it took too long to do it. In AMD's case many TDR's are caused...

    My words are getting seriously twisted here.....that doesn't make me wrong mate. That is what makes me really annoyed. I never said CPU cache is the only type of cache, and you know I don't believe that anyway because you and had this discussion, remember I told u CPU cache is not the only type...

    No, I'm having 2 discussions with 2 people about different types of caching. Primo with new Tekkie and Hybrid with Rezjor... This topic stemmed from another thread with Newtekkie which is why it prob appears out of context. If anyone is quoting out of context it's NewTekkie. I'm jumping out...

    ISRT refuses to see my Samsung SM951 128GB M.2 drive

    You should take some reading lessons before posting again. Nowhere did I say SSD's were volatile I said RAM is volatile, I also said clearly SSD's were NOT Volatile, so stop talking shit. Yes, and? You're repeating what I said already. Wrong, wrong, and wrong. Anything can be cached into...

    Jesus man L1 is not system RAM, it's CPU cache. So yes I guess that makes you wrong. Happy? I'd blame the software. So there's no doubt what windows actually does, here is the proof. This a shot of my system after rebooting and opening up PanzerCorps then closing it again. The game is not...

    ISRT refuses to see my Samsung SM951 128GB M.2 drive

    Bullshit, nothing in RAM survives after a reboot, that's how cache is cleared. If you wanna get condescending, so can I. You have no idea how Windows Memory Management works, read Russunovich's Winternals then come back and we'll talk about it... Firstly Primo Cache/Fancy Cache and caching on...

    ISRT refuses to see my Samsung SM951 128GB M.2 drive

    PrimoCache and FancyCache do not speed up drives, none of those apps do, they cache files in RAM. You're not acessing the drive you're acessing RAM. Windows does the exact same thing, I said this to you in the other thread. If u want I can show you a screenshot right now of mapped files sitting...

    Should i buy an SSD?

    That's is not true. I do Windows deployment and I know exactly how much space is needed. Windows doesn't just magically grow by 30GB either. It grows because you've put files on the drive, if you say no then my guess is your laptop is OEM with bloatware on it. Semantics anyhow as you said OP...

    Should i buy an SSD?

    55GB is still plenty of room, a normal system drive doesn't take up more than around 40GB max.. If you got more than 40GB then either you have VMware or Photoshop or Visual Studio or some other huge suite on the drive, or you got stuff on there which doesn't need to be....like movies. Even a...
