seems like their claim of an optional client is a slight misnomer in regards to their recent addition of free games. The "get for free" button in a web browser does nothing, but in the client adds to library for easy downloading. GOG Galaxy isnt bad for a beta though. Quickly DLed all the manuals, songs, etc. Purhcased NWN2 as a thank you for their generosity Thanks for the headsup. Will test their DRM free claims, as I hope to play with a friend at a LAN, and I dont...
If Linux is more your thing (as is mine), Bonnie++ does a decent job at benchmarking storage. I used 10 instances and concurrent semaphores to link them. Formatted Ext4 on same system, running Ubuntu 14.04 with 3.19 kernel. Code: bonnie++ -p -1 -u 0:0; bonnie++ -p10 -u 0:0; export COUNT=0; while [ $COUNT -lt 10 ]; do export COUNT=$(( $COUNT + 1 )); bonnie++ -d /mnt/ -s10G -r5G -u 0:0 -ys > /tmp/bonnie$COUNT.log 2>&1 & done Code: Version 1.97 ------Sequential...
Benchmarks are in! SN100 = SFF 2.5" variant of SN150. http://www.overclock.net/t/1617500/hgst-3-2tb-sn100-nvme-benchmarks/0_20
I got my hands on some ludicrous storage. Lets benchmark it Test Setup: AS SSD 1.7.4739 Windows 7 SP1, 64bit Xeon D-1581 32thread CPU at 1.8-2.4Ghz 64G DDR4-2133 ECC Ram 1RU LogicSupply MK100 chassis Intel S320 Series 80G OS drive, circa 2013. HGST 3.2TB SN100 SFF 2.5" NVMe SSD (connected via PCIe 3.0 4x adapter) Testing with AS SSD, on HGST (secondary storage) and Intel (OS, for comparison). Formatted NTFS. HGST: Intel: Out of the box, the SSD is rated for 25W,...
yeah, i just activated a windows xp VM last week. xp would be better than 98, due to networking and USB drivers. SATA support is native to XP... just some HW required additional drivers via F6? prompt during install. switch to IDE mode (instead of AHCI) to avoid. not good for SSDs though. Having the drivers on a floppy or usb drive is easy. Most new 'useful' ISOs of Windows could have all those drivers slipstreamed into CD for you
a quicky, letting the Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon intro scene with the helicopter play through, at 1200p, ultra settings. Crossfire enabled through Radeon Settings 16.40.3111.1002-161103a-308532E.

thanks for a wonderful time guys, indeed too short (we missed playing AOE2!). Will post SSs once I go through them (I accidentally bound "D" to Fraps), do you know how many times you press D in an FPS? Also very happy to have traded in my AMD 7970 reference for a new Radeon Card #BetterRed, however, I always forget to bring old cards with me.. I even have a Geforce 430 (shudders) from work, I was going to trade in. History: Trident 1.25M PCI HIS ATI 7000 VE 64M AGP ATI...
Of course and I also have a one-click installer
Tf2, l4d2, wc3 ft, sc2, can't wait Grab blur racing if you can. Its fun smash em up racer If anyone needs a last minute ticket i have an extra (i believe eventbrite sales close)
Now that they have a stake in the HW sales, they want Pixel to have an exclusivity period, to boost sales. Once that is over, im sure the Nexus (Nexi?) will get it too.
