    The TB host integrated with X99 only works on a specific 4 lanes, which is going to make it the bottom or last X4 in 99% of all situations. To re-work it into another slot position would require...

    The limitation on the # of Red label drives has to do with their firmware and onboard communications abilities. These features require a host controller that supports and allows for communication...

    No point in using the Red label drives in that configuration, that's not what they're purposed for. The Red drives' strength is their inter-drive communication and balancing, however this only works...

    The mini mags are newer, faster, smaller, better. It is an investment to switch, but I have switched and I'm not looking back. With Dragon the 1.8" mags are fine, but I highly recommend the 512GB...

    It's not possible. The E-Mount mirror less system holds the mount very close to the sensor -- I think even closer than the distance between the OLPF surface and the sensor of the MX/ Dragon. Never...

    That VF plate Bob shows is called the "Stealth" plate -- as is emblazoned on the side of it. Nothing against Brook and I like some of the stuff he designed along with ViewFactor, but VF still owes a...

    There is an optional 1-year warranty as well. I recently sold my second EPIC after upgrading it to Dragon and the buyer was able to get a 1-year "transfer armor" warranty.

    6GB is useful if you're working in Resolve or Nuke or other apps with 4K+ source material, whether you're monitoring at 4K or not. I don't know if I'd want to go from a 780 6GB to a 980 4GB. ...

    The 980, and presumably the 970, are limited to 10.2Gbps output. They support HDMI 2.0, but it's bandwidth-crippled. This is the semi-official info I've got from one of their developer support...

    Lots of unanswered questions there.... Sounds interesting though.

    I'd really like to see USB, Thunderbolt, DisplayPort and HDMI all converge into one singular interface to rule them all. Give...

    It was a special unreleased version back in the day. Now it's just the old version of RC-X Pro (v23). Newer versions of RCX don't support RREncoder. :-(

    Those are some nice results and somewhat surprising to me, given the lower clock speed. I think the added throughput with DDR4 is making a significant improvement on the X99 / E5v3 platforms.

    980 looks like a nice card. The HDMI 2.0 is nice and it seems to offer similar performance to some of the existing 780 cards, edging them out in some aspects, falling short in others. Much lower...

    There are visual attributes which come from larger imager sizes and a whole set of nuances we can't easily achieve with 35mm or smaller imagers. But for the most part it is subtle and the casual...

    DP1.3 should rear its head with the next round of GPUs from nVidia and AMD. Probably Q2 2015. There were no announcements of note at Siggraph last month, but DP v1.3 wasn't finalized until just the...

    IMO, the push for tiered internet models and bandwidth "fast lanes" is nothing new and only a legislative quest to legitimize what most ISP's and network owners have been doing all along. Where I...

    There is enough demand for OVF and mirror systems to keep DLSRs around for a long time. That said, I think we're going to see implementations similar to DMD surfaces used in DLP projection systems...

    And it only works to a select few displays such as the Sony 4K monitors that support that mode -- it's non-standard. His Samsung display actually does support this mode though. :)

    HDMI 2.0 compatibility was always on the table, but the HDCP 2.2 compliance was up in the air. I'm glad to see they are...
