    Back on the stuck pixel thing... I don’t think that’s what we’re seeing. I didn’t notice them watching through, even though I’m watching on a 4K projector and a pretty big screen — like 12ft wide. ...

    I melted the D700 GPUs twice on the same 12-core trashcan Mac. My other two were 8-core units and in one system I swapped the 8-core for a 10-core CPU just because. Never had a problem with either...

    It’s not that they don’t use commodity flash memory in the Redmags, it’s that they use the ones that pass their required QC tests. Off the shelf media does not undergo the same level of QC and for...

    But it’s not. The 3223 only has 16.5MB cache. They’re probably using the W-3243, which has the 24.5MB cache listed in Apple’s specs and the 3.5GHz base clock and 4GHz turbo. I don’t have a price...
