    This is always infuriating -- many of the support techs, even at nVidia, don't know what the SLI bridges truly do. They have nothing to do with compute operations or using multiple GPUs for CUDA,...

    Some larger SSD's are starting to hit the market. The largest 2.5" SATA SSD I know of right now is the 1.6TB from Intel and it sells for just under $1600....

    Yeah, the 2012 thru 2104 Macbook Pros are using M.2 PCIe SSDs with customized firmware. I think some of the newer Samsung and Crucial SSDs can drop in and work, but capacities are no bigger and...

    I take Jake's "yep" response as confirmation of the last question -- meaning the cameras would be functionally the same. And they are. The one issue you may find if you buy an upgraded Dragon is...

    Thunderbolt licensing is free, other than the certification process. It is in fact cheaper to license and certify Thunderbolt devices than USB devices as USB requires licensing fees to use their...

    This latest Macbook Pro 15" is only about 8~10% faster in overall CPU performance (real world) vs. the original 2012 Macbook Pro 15" retina system. It offers an updated GPU which is a nice step...

    I have been talking about this in the other X99 thread here recently, but figure this deserves its own thread. The following is a case study in the assembly of a new, and reasonably practical,...

    The bit-ness of the operating system has nothing to do with it, as that has no bearing on the drive formatting itself and none of that differs between the OS versions. However, the partition mapping...

    Yes. You can use a current GPU, GeForce, Titan, AMD R9, etc.. via a Thunderbolt expansion box. With one HUGE caveat. It works under Windows. It does not work via OS X or Linux. This is in part...

    Sadly, you basically just have to connect one switch to the other and the link between the two will be 1G. If your 1G switch has a designated uplink port, use that to connect to one of the common...

    [/FONT]
    With only one Xeon CPU installed in the Z820, you won't be able to use all of the PCIe slots in the system properly. You must have two CPUs installed if you want to access all slots and...

    Yes guys, I was referring to the integrated LSI SAS controller in the Z8x0 workstations, I guess I was making the assumption that is what was being used when LSI SAS was mentioned. Those integrated...

    Why the desire to stay AMD? I realize there are political preferences at times and that's fine and all, but you're going to get more CPU horsepower with Intel.



    With 24 cores, you will need...

    In your BIOS boot configuration, do you have the internal SSD listed first in the boot order? If they're both connected to the LSI controller, you don't get the luxury of that configuration choice,...

    It is possible to put 32GB in a laptop if the CPU and chipset combination support it. The Macbook Pro does not, not directly. It can use a secondary chipset extension to move from 16GB to 32GB, but...

    The bad news here is this probably means Skylake for the iMac and Macbook Pro is probably 8+ months away at this point, most likely a full year. These are reasonable refreshes based on what is...

    I will probably go RAID-5 with only 6 drives, but will be testing various setups. I'm actually thinking a RAID-50 implementation might have some value here. Not sure how well the Areca host will...

    Er... I guess we'll find out when I get it put together, but that differs from the info I've gathered. If they suck that bad, I'll send them back. ;)

    I'm going with the i7-5960X CPU and a SuperClocked Titan X GPU. I'm planning to add a second Titan X SC, but figure I'll get everything up and running first. I'll start a dedicated thread for it...

    The only fully functional Thunderbolt card I've seen working with my own eyes on dual Xeon systems is the HP one for the Z workstations. And it works great! I know SuperMicro has one, but not sure...
