1W is for standby, idle is 4,6W per drive and this is for 500GB drives. Larger drives usually consume even more due to having more patters, so he was right in saying that the drives consume most of the power.
I'm planing of upgrading my current 3930k to a Xeon E5 1680 V2 CPU which I can get for around 650€ (used of course), it's one of those rare unlocked Xeons.
My current board does support it so I would only swap the CPU - power I don't think will be a problem due to better binning of the Xeon and...
Because that CPU and it's chipset are not mobile, you won't see DELL/HP/Lenovo with such designs.
Not long ago I upgraded my laptop CPU from a dual to a quad - if there was an option of a 6 core I would do it.
It's not moronic, it's about time we get 6 core mobile CPUs at 45W TDP and these will sell especially in mobile workstations (the best you can get now is a Xeon 4 core with high clocks but it's still a 4 core).
I don't care what they call it as long as the price is right.
I'm looking for a ZR30w as well, however I think I won't be able to part with the ZR24w I'm currently running (the only direct replacement would be the new Z24x which is still 16:10, all others are 16:9 AFAIK).
Exactly, it has a full blown Ryzen and not a mobile Ryzen.
Personally I don't care that much about some silly gaming laptops especially with desktop rated hardware which destroys battery life (the whole point of having a laptop) and is held back by cooling - I rather have a normal desktop.
I'm running a SAS controller and an LTO4 tape in my computer (also have an old server with SCSI LTO2 drive) - and also still using a 15k RPM drive as my system drive. SAS became pretty much like SATA - you can connect SATA drives to your SAS controller with no problems (but you cannot use SAS...
Yes it's complex but it's not nice to have a monopoly (ok AMD is sort of back but they need to gain their market share back). Market will take what's cheaper and better it doesn't care much about the brand.
It's not only Boeing and Airbus - that's what you hear in the media the most, Embraer...
Where are you getting all that information from? Soyuz retired? Since when? It's still used (last launch was in beginning of July) and as far as I know it is the only way to get people into space - not to mention it's still the cheapest and the safest.
Sanctions? Those are a joke, the trade is...
I'm not saying it won't run cool but you cannot only compare temperatures, especially since the Titan is air cooled. What is important is how much HEAT is generated - which can be more even if the temperature is lower.
That depends - common rail diesels produce way less soot than old engines (looking at it without the DPF) it's due to higher efficiency of combustion. But for the new petrol DI engines you are completely right.
