    Free CCTV server software - what do you roll?

    Curious whether others are running custom CCTV servers for home or small business, if so what software are you using? Not interested in paying a license if I can help it so... I'm trying ZoneMinder but it's a bit rough around the edges and seems very resource intensive (chews up a whole CPU...

    AMD EPYC “Genoa” (Zen4) to feature 96 cores across 12 chiplets, 12-channel DDR5 memory and SP5 (LGA6096 socket)

    Who said anything about AM5 or TR...? :P I want higher clocks on EPYC too!

    Love the fact they are offering even higher TDPs, hopefully that's also the case on the lower core count models to give higher clocks and turbo :cool:

    SAS HBA and expander low profile

    I've had success with an LSI 9220-8i (IT mode) into a Supermicro BPN-SAS2-826EL1 backplane (which has the expander built in) It's only SAS2 6Gbps but that's more than enough for HDDs.

    Work Server Advice

    Presumably there is an existing server for the same system of 15 users - can you tell us what that looks like to compare? What's the current user experience, is there an issue you need to address or they are happy and you just need to replace due to age? Difficult to judge when we don't know...

    Best way to set up 24-drive ZFS NAS?

    ZIL is the log itself and SLOG is a dedicated device that the ZIL sits on; by default if you enable sync writes but don't have a SLOG, the ZIL sits on your pool (hard drives in this case) which is bad for performance as you effectively write the data to the same pool drives twice. So if you're...

    Best way to set up 24-drive ZFS NAS?

    What's the minimum usable capacity you need to provide overall? This might help to narrow down what pool layout options are available to you in this scenario. For example if you need at least 250TB usable, that would rule out a pool of 2-drive mirrors, as (by my calculations) that would only...

    NVIDIA to Drop Max-Q and Max-P Differentiators in Mobile GPU Specifications

    Sorry if not clear, that's exactly what I meant. Not expecting it to be a totally different chip (if it was it should have a different model number)

    NVIDIA to Drop Max-Q and Max-P Differentiators in Mobile GPU Specifications

    What happened to just putting "M" on the end of the mobile version of the GPU? Companies obsessed with coming up with new naming schemes all the time, confusing AF.

    GTA 6 Could Gain This Next-Gen (AI) Intelligent NPC Technology From Rockstar

    You mean like live-time? That wouldn't be practical or cost-effective as there are so many real players, you'd need millions of these employees...! But perhaps you could employ a few hundred people for a few months to just play all the characters in the game over and over, then use their...

    Is a 17" laptop really worth the extra expense over a 15"?

    Personally I wouldn't want to game on a screen smaller than 17" And 17" laptops are not that heavy - in a backpack it's hardly noticeable (unless you're a small child...) To be honest I wish companies would make more 18"+ models, for those who are more towards the desktop/workstation...
