    Synology DS918+ 4-Bay NAS

    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.

    Xeon Owners Club

    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...

    Intel Extends the Core i9 Brand to the Mobile Platform

    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.

    Intel Extends the Core i9 Brand to the Mobile Platform

    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.

    Why was I so positive 16:10 was the future of gaming? ... 21:9 is king?

    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).

    Intel 10 nm CPUs to See Very Limited Initial Launch in 2017

    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. What...

    Intel 10 nm CPUs to See Very Limited Initial Launch in 2017

    AFAIK they only launched 4 core APU parts and even those are LP versions (15W).

    SAS controllers and tape drives

    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...

    Intel 8-core LGA1151 Processor will be 14 nm "Coffee Lake" Based

    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...

    Intel Skylake-X HCC CPU Delidded by Der8auer, also not Soldered

    I don't own any of the new chips myself but I can tell you this: Temperature != heat.

    Intel Skylake-X HCC CPU Delidded by Der8auer, also not Soldered

    But maybe it would run even cooler if it was soldered? Just guessing here of course.

    Ageing fighter jets to launch satellites into space.

    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...

    Ageing fighter jets to launch satellites into space.

    So what if it's russian, everyone is using Soyuz to get into space anyway so I don't see a problem...they are old yes but they can reach very high altitudes.

    AMD "Fiji" Block Diagram Revealed, Runs Cool and Quiet

    And? My point still stands that the Titan could be using less power even if it runs at higher temperature.

    AMD "Fiji" Block Diagram Revealed, Runs Cool and Quiet

    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.

    E-cigarettes alter lungs 'at cellular level'

    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.
