    ...it doesn't matter how reliable a human is... if the computer fails at least you get a shot to not die if you have a steering wheel. If you don't, you just crash. I don't get the reasoning here.

    VirtualNinja reacted to Giganizer300PRO in Boot time increased?   
    I did some thorough scans: a long Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan, an avast! full system scan and an avast! startup scan.
    Now everything is back to normal, the system boots even a little faster and the animation ends very quickly after it starts.
    :D
    Thank you for the help, I will still run an SSD speed test like @VirtualNinja directed me, just to check. Thanks for all of your help

    I see in your sig you have an 840 EVO. Some of these drives, including mine, are exhibiting slowdowns in read performance in old files which could be a contributing factor. Please note this occured after Samsung "fixed" the issue with the previous patch.
     
    Download and run SSDReadSpeedTester and check your read speeds. (In the 1st post)

    If it is really bugging you you can used DiskFresh to refresh the files on the drive or wait till Samsung makes attempt 2 which is due soon.

    OK download, unzip ( make sure you unzip it to a folder) & run the program from the previous post. It will read every file it on the drive. you will get a result read speed graph with the average read speed when it is finished. It will also put an image of the result into the folder you unzipped the program into. It looks like this.
     

     
    This is the result from one of my SSD's. Average read speed is 227MB/s a health one should be around 540MB/s on a SATA 3 connection. Post your result on here.

    VirtualNinja reacted to Opcode in Microsoft clarifies "Windows 10 free for pirate". It's not!   
    News flash Microsoft pirates don't care as they actually prefer to not get the free upgrade. Reason for this is most of us (PC enthusiasts) tend to like to do a fresh install when a new Windows launches. It won't take long for the new activation protocol to be broke and KMS emulators are updated to legitimately activate copies of Windows 10.
      Actually you do as Microsoft officially publishes the SHA1 of these ISO's on MSDN. When you grab an ISO from the web all you have to do is match the SHA1 to know if you have an official copy of Windows that hasn't been tampered with (straight from Microsoft). You can't fake a SHA1 hash as the algorithm can't be broken with modern hardware.

    VirtualNinja reacted to mr moose in NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X 3DMark performance From [ videocardz ] & [ChipHell]   
    They will, like all competing companies they frog hop each other,  It's just that AMD have had an unstable decade where nvidia and intel didn't.  if you go back ten years AMD were killing it.  In fact you were a fool if you bought intel for gaming.  GPUs have always bounced between the two.  I think the problem at the moment is all the fanboys who make it sound like it's all one way, to prove this If I say what do you think the hottest and most unstable GPU was, if you say AMD you'd be wrong, they have been unstable but not the hottest, Nvidia 480 was both cooking breakfast and unstable at the same time.  But we only think of AMD when we mention hot power hungry GPUs.

    There is no problems buying used.Personally I prefer to buy & sell through forums such as OCAU & Atomicmpc here in Oz, as you will find it is inhabited by fellow tech junkies. All of the equipment I have bought over the years is still working fine.

    They're not going to move stock without dropping prices. Everyone is waiting for the new gen unless they simply don't have a gpu.
    Until the 290x is under 300 dollars it won't move any faster.

    VirtualNinja reacted to Overl0rd in Tim Cook: threat of terrorism should not scaremonger citizens into giving up their privacy   
    The chief executive of Apple is a radical privacy advocate and was on the last leg of a trip to Europe and Israel where he discussed this issue extensively.


    In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, Cook said that it is clear that there are many instances of people’s information being “trafficked around” and that this is something his company abhorred.
     
    "At the moment, however, consumers often “don’t fully understand what is going on", he added. "One day they will, and will be very offended.”
    But it soon becomes clear that Cook’s commitment is sincere; Apple’s views on the subject stand in stark contrast to the position taken by Facebook and most other US tech giants, which are much more relaxed about these issues. It is also entirely at odds with the position adopted by David Cameron and most governments around the world, who believe that they need ever-increasing monitoring powers to combat crime and terror, dismissing the concerns of civil libertarians.
     
    Cook disagrees fundamentally. “None of us should accept that the government or a company or anybody should have access to all of our private information. This is a basic human right. We all have a right to privacy. We shouldn't give it up. We shouldn't give in to scare-mongering or to people who fundamentally don’t understand the details.”

    VirtualNinja reacted to SpaghettiCarbonara in NVIDIA have been hit with a class action suit over the GTX 970.   
    God, this thread... LTT is fucked. I said it before, I'll say it again.


    My 2 cents:

    It doesn't fucking matter if Nvidia lied or not. They were at least misleading and/or did not advertise their product correctly. For an international company as big as Nvidia, this is a big fucking deal! As with any large, international company, give them an inch and they'll take a mile. Nvidia absolutely bloody must be held accountable for their actions, no matter what their intentions were, even if they simply fucked up. If they aren't held accountable, they'll continue to "mess up" or "lie" (whatever you want to call it) and it will only get worse.
     
    Do you want to see shit like this continue with their future products and possibly on a larger/harsher scale? I sure as hell don't!

     
    If Nvidia did indeed lie:
     
    Nvidia is an a very large company. Companies as big as Nvidia are constantly trying to increase profits and lower costs. Sometimes they do this by being dishonest, it's nothing new. As consumers, it's up to us to decide whether this sort of thing from Nvidia is acceptable or not and take appropriate action - like speaking with our wallets.


    Get your head into gear, LTT.
     
     
    I'm sorry, am I missing something? Did AMD lie about something?

    I get the feeling they didn't. As the underdogs, they cannot afford to be caught out lying. It could possibly destroy their company if they were.
