    Re: Computer Will Not Stay in Sleep Mode

    HDDs still have one major advantage: price per (Giga)Byte.

    System/boot drive should always be on SSD for performance. Commonly used apps/games should be installed to SSD for maximum performance. ...

    Re: Computer Will Not Stay in Sleep Mode

    I've read numerous "studies" and analyses about this topic.

    Cycling surge power is indeed a little rough on your computer - mostly on the PSU and on all the power regulation hardware (including...

    Re: The Future of Sound Cards?

    Motherboards have had decent integrated audio forever (AC'97 codecs since late 1990s, Intel HD codecs since 2004) but dedicated audio cards are still going strong and still being sold twenty years...

    Re: Malware on TBCS?

    I don't get it. My Symantec and Kaspersky machines (now) seem happy with this site. My Avast machine does not. Nor does my coworker's Avast machine. Could it be a regional thing?

    Still getting big beep beep "Threat Has Been Detected!" warnings from Avast here.

  7. Re: Will PCI-Express-Based Solid-State Drives Become More Popular in the Near Future?

    Multiple PCIe SSDs in RAID0, lol.

    I see new Seagate Nytro XP7200 (3.8TB and 7.7TB capacities) which use PCIe3x16 NVMe, rated up to 10GB/s sequential Read. An enterprise product at enterprise...
  8. Re: Will PCI-Express-Based Solid-State Drives Become More Popular in the Near Future?

    huge lol,

    PCIe SSDs (in which I include M.2 SSDs and NVMe SSDs) have been available to consumers for years now. There's many offerings, but Samsung and Intel dominate the consumer market - partly...

    Re: CPU Fan Error

    Intermittent or recurring failures usually indicate the part is approaching end of (useful) life. That fan might continue to work for months or years, with or without signalling any more errors, but...

    NVMe requires a PCIe slot. And for now NVMe implementations are still limited and buggy, included by motherboard vendors as add-ons, not as part of the core chipset - but I agree that it's likely to...

    Re: Tech Mergers that You Would Like to See

    I agree that the tech world would be a better place if Samsung absorbed AMD.

    AMD can no longer compete with Intel's or NVidia's raw technical superiority, but AMD still manages to hold a good...

    Re: LT1304 controller can handle this situation

    This Micropower LT1304 part has around 50%-85% power efficiency, while other parts typically offer 70%-90%, so it's not really the best choice for many ultra-low-power circuits. It also requires...
