  1. Χρόνια Πολλά!
  2. hey

    Γεια σου!
  3. CAPS: I am too old for this shit.
  4. I don't think I'll be taking the expert computer advice from my local news.
  5. First of all ... Καλή επιτυχία! Well it philosophy might have existed in ancient Egypt too. Thales traveled to Egypt and studied geometry and philosophy (so they say). A good article to read. http://maat.sofiatopia.org/hermes1.htm As a Greek I am proud what my forefathers archived and thanks to them we are what we are today. I would be interested to share your thoughts about it.
  6. First of all : patience is a virtue. AMD FX is not dead. https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=zh-CN&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.mydrivers.com%2F1%2F305%2F305092.htm&sandbox=1 (translated). We don't know if its on AM3+. Time will tell. RAM is always needed. For virtual drives to games to cad-cam software. DDR4 is a massive step forward and companies already have them manufactured http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9247500/Hynix_reveals_world_s_first_128GB_DDR4_memory_module AMD will begin supporting DDR4 with the Hierofalcon SOC in 2014. Intel's 2014 Haswell-E roadmap revealed the company's first use of DDR4 SDRAM in Haswell-E CPU.
  7. Γειά σου!
  8. Drunk to much tsipouro.
  9. Hello!
  10. Today I am going to test a Samsung Evo 840 120GB in rapid mode. My company which I work for gave me as a gift a Samsung SSD. The SSD is performance-wise is nothing differendent like the others in the same category: Sustained Sequential Read 540MBps Sustained Sequential Write 410MBps 4KB Random Read Up to 94,000 IOPS 4KB Random Write Up to 35,000 IOPS So I wanted to see what rapid mode delivered. What is rapid mode? So it uses your RAM of your computer and it uses a lot of it, about 1 to 3 GB. But is it a price worthy to take? In today's computers its not so much of a deal to sacrife this amount of ram, but older PC and laptops will have an issue here. Anyways. So how secure is it ? Will youy lose data if you have e.g a power-loss? Well I would not put my hand in fire on this. I think if that RAM is always a risk when it comes to reliability issues. Bad RAM, bugs and other things will always be something to watch on and I would not recommend rapid mode in crucial data handling. (my opinion). Does it work as it says? YES! Windows 8.1 sky rocket. Startup time is about 5 seconds and I don't see the welcome screen anymore (I don't have a password.). Software and internet applications fly and games are fast too. Here are my benchies with and without rapid mode: I used not Samsung's benchmarks but Crystal Disk Mark and AS SSD. Clearly rapid mode works and its very very fast . I recommend it when you have a modern rig or laptop it will make your day. If you have questions about it I will pleased to answer them. -BigTree
  11. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/raviparikh/lie-with-data-visualization_b_5169715.html Interesting article on how data visualization can deceive you. What do you think?
