    Unigine Heaven 4.0 Benchmark Scores Part 2

    Hi, Nice effort in collecting these. And is quite an effort: not many people listened to how to run the test, or report the data....:-} Couple comments about the data in the compiled lists: (1) One comment about a few cases where the entries are recorded as Multi GPU's. I think they should be...

    Cpu low usage but high temp

    Actuallly.....no. If you found them strange tangents, then I suspect you didn't read my reply very carefully. Although if anything, I'm maybe a bit guilty of hijacking the thread a bit, but it was in response to Cucker Tarlson's comment that: "All coolers lose liquid". Initially I didn't see...

    Cpu low usage but high temp

    Heh heh heh.....well, go ahead with that opinion...... I dunno what your background is, and no offence, if you've got a fundamental foundation in physics or engineering. It's no problem if you don't, it just determines the level at which i can use to explain things. In any case, I'm writing...

    Death Stranding Benchmark Test & Performance Analysis

    Yeah, very well done Review. I'm not a gamer, although maybe now I've seen some of the games out there now, it's a good addition/substance abuse issue to add to the list....like running after sheep nekked at midnight on the Yorkshire Moors was exciting the first few times, but maybe is time for...

    Cpu low usage but high temp

    I dunno where you lads have worked, but you can classify cooling systems in two types: with poor instrumetation and with good instrumentation. That's going from computer cooling, to automative to industrial grade in refineries and such. The former costs you about 10% less up front, and then...

    Cpu low usage but high temp

    In terms of solving the issue, these are good suggestions. But before you start changing stuff, you should benxhmark where you are now, so you know what the issue actually was, and how bad it was. Because it can occur again, and maybe it's not what you thought it was, and you only "corrected" it...

    Cpu low usage but high temp

    Actually, that's not the case if you have enough permeable material in your system. Work through the calculations and you can see for yourself. In any case, I'm not saying that this is what's causing the OP's issue, I was showing that water loss over the course of a long enough time can indeed...

    Cpu low usage but high temp

    I saw this by accident, and it got me interested. When you say that "all coolers lose liquid eventually". They are closed systems, and very low pressure, so unless someone screws up and has a leak, the only realistic way is by diffusion through the plastic pipes. I was curious, so I...

    Sequential R/W vs Random R/W

    Hi Messieur Escape Artiste, Not sure if you have read me response yet, I trust you followed it OK. I tried to edit my first post, and I think it's been closed to edit for me automatically after a certain time. Important point: your question was posted in the STORAGE part of the Forum, and I...

    Sequential R/W vs Random R/W

    Hi, In order to define Sequential and Random, it's better not to use a specific example of loading software, especially since you have added in Read and Write. Therefore, think of it as how they relate to the transfer of data to or from one "place" to the storage disk. I say a "place", because...

    SSD Temperature Measurement

    Was thinking more on this topic, and how I would be using an FLIR camera to review SSD's. I think it would be useful to see how a given SSD handles a given load, either Read, Write or Mixed. In terms of both TOTAL power used, TEMPERATURE of key components (controller, DRAM and NAND), and an...

    Needed: Reviews on 2TB SSD's

    Hi Cucker, I'm not sure what you mean exactly, but thanks for the feedback. And i'm not saying there are any hard and fast actual values for where you stop gaining some benefit from extra OP, or from leaving empty space. I just used 20% OP, and 80% full as a rough ballpark. And indeed, you...

    SSD Temperature Measurement

    Thanks, i'll see if the automotive aector ones are any better. I was interested in the application, and was researching it, and can see the funamental difference between a standard low light sensor, usung a CMOS, and one specifically designed for quantitative thermal measurements. My interest...

    Needed: Reviews on 2TB SSD's

    I see. And i'm not so interested in an isolated single metric from a 2TB drive, but in a thorough Review. Like the ones you usually do. And I'm not expecting to get information about long term, or short term, performace from the tests that Reviewers do for Reviews, but I AM interested in the...

    Adata's Confusing lineup

    Thanks. Well, I didn't do it for the OP. I did it for me. I was interested in the data myself, and did a search, and didn't find much. But I wish that there was a site that archived info about SSD's like TPU's GPU archive. That's the gold standard. Very useful.

    Needed: Reviews on 2TB SSD's

    Thanks for the feedback. So let's not gewt distracted, there are two points here. Maybe I should have posted two separate points. The FIRST is that for various reasons I'd like o see ore revies of 2 TB drives. For many reasons, The SECOND point, is that for those people who actually NEED a...

    SSD Temperature Measurement

    Correction. I'm wrong about being able to use the ON Semiconductor Avnet AR1820HS sensor for a DIY thermal camera. It will make a very good low light imaging camera, but it does'nt have the right type o sensor to give the precise measuremwnts you need in an FLIR system. The type of sensor you...

    Needed: Reviews on 2TB SSD's

    There is a general lack of Reviews on 2TB SSD's (and I'm obviously only referring to variants where that exists). I'd bet that there's at most a 30% coverage (or worse) of 2TB SSD's. I'll welcome disagreements with any data to back them up. But my survey shows that. And I'd argue that with the...

    Adata's Confusing lineup

    Well, I see it's now 8 months later. And I still don't see any Review on an 8800. Do you? So, although I am a believer in enlisting Mr. Google's help, I think there's nothing there to LOOK up. Easily or not. Seriously, I wish there was a database for SSD's like the GPU one on TPU. Reviews on...

    Not sure if you'll see this now, if not I'll repost. But I would still like to know the answer, please. I have various benchmarks from a wide variety of reviewers, and you can indeed get a useful idea of results if you know a bit more infomation. I've made estimates for these two items, and...

    SSD Temperature Measurement

    OK, thanks. I haven't used any of the FLIR type yet, but I think in terms of specs vs $$, the One Pro is best. As much because it saves money by connecting to a smart phone for a lot of the electronics/display etc You can buy the FLIR sensors themselves that are used in the more expensive...

    SSD Temperature Measurement

    Hi fellow inmates, It goes without saying that TPU is the best review site overall for SSD's. And especially for thermal throttling effects. Two related questions, if you please: (1) Which FLIR system are you using? I'm thinking of getting a thermal camera, and not sure if I'll buy one ready...

    I'm pretty new to this site, and I see no problem with having the potential of paying for a subscription. Except that I'm not sure it's a good idea to cut-out the advertisers to subscribers, except perhaps to the very top tier. Because you might find it harder to get advertising revenue then...
