Yes, but with SSDs you still have a divide between "random" and "sequential" access, based on the size of the access. Anandtech does 4KB reads/writes for their "random" tests, and 2MB reads/writes for their "sequential" tests. One thing that holds true for all SSDs on the market so far is a high sequential read speed, but significantly slower random read speed.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Haven't we been through this before? Nobody has taken the cross platform capabilities of Java seriously since "All Your Base" jokes went out of style.
What you say?!?
Even if there's no serial port, many motherboards still come with a serial header; the white header on the bottom of this board is for a serial port.
How about a change back to the advertising format of Jack Benny?
You have it backwards. Crossfire works on pretty much any motherboard with multiple PCIe slots, provided they have sufficient bandwidth between them. SLI requires the motherboard manufacturer to purchase a license from Nvidia to support SLI on the board.
If I'm not mistaken, Intel's X58 board was the first Intel-made board to support SLI, and I don't think anyone made a P45 board supporting it.
I don't know. The things most keeping me from using FreeBSD instead of Linux on the desktop are closed source, ironically (NVidia blobs and Cedega, mostly)
I'm not a BSD user, but wouldn't you be able to use FreeBSD's binary compatibility to run Cedega, at least?
The guy didn't have a machete; it was a scimitar.
Maybe you're thinking of my next film project, "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash vs. Indy"?
Ever buy an Olive at Olive Garden, nope, there ya go "The Garden" it is.
Just make sure you accentuate the "R" sound, otherwise you'll confuse Bostonians who will think of The Gahden
"'The Grapes of Wrath'? I don't get it."
"Here's the grapes, and here's the wrath!"
"Yes, yes, very good wrath."
I've only seen the first three movies, you insensitive clod!
Please send a link or something; I want to read this.
The problem with that experiment is that most wifi devices make some kind of noise when turned on, and most devices supply at least some power to the antenna when turned on, even if wireless transmission is off.
I can hear my router in a quiet room, even though it's fanless. Mostly due to the LEDs making noise.
without things waiting in some weird limbo for three days
This phenomenon is usually known as a "weekend".
If you order on a Friday, your order won't likely ship before Monday, because they don't work weekends.
Rush processing applies for orders made before noon, and if they don't ship your order that day, they refund the rush processing fee.
One of the towns in my area uses meters for the spaces immediately in front of the stores on Main Street, but then there's ample free parking within two blocks.
Do you like this solution? Why or why not?
Then you find the nearest Starfleet Academy shuttle bay, steal a shuttle, and head for the sun. Hmm... something's wrong with that plan, but I can't quite put my finger on it...
Simple. You need a metaphasic shield installed first.
