    vmware 6.7 U2 released.

    Are people aware VMware dropped the vmklinux driver stack and as of 6.7 U2 only native is supported. This means a lot of older kit without native drivers won't work on u2.

    Noob help - PCI passthrough

    Passthrough for graphics isn't as easy as normal PCI Passthrough. ESXi needs Quadro for this to work so unless something changed that I'm not aware of, it won't work without some hackory. You'll have better luck with KVM/qEMU, which is currently in your ballpark with Ubuntu.

    Odd wireless issue

    My wireless interference isn't bad. I was thinking of MTU however, my devices are 1500, but I am going to investigate this. MrTroy03 - I'm not sure if I have explained myself well enough. When connected via wireless to my local network speeds are about 240 Mbps download, however to the...

    Odd wireless issue

    Yep, its the same on either AP. Wireless drivers are up-to-date. I don't have anything else AC, but am going to test with a Mac tomorrow, as I don't have that right now.

    Odd wireless issue

    Hi Guys, I'm battling my ISP regarding broadband speed issues and I've been doing a boat load of testing, I also have a new laptop, which doesn't help as its an unknown factor. This is not the reason for this post but to give a little detail, when I use speedtest.net it threads at 32...

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    I agree with the practical application, however with a lot of boards we don't have the practical use of 40 lanes but rather 36 and I'm finding boards, where the practical application is poor. Agreed, we can only work within the confines of the board design, which has compromise and is were...

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    Thanks to the above diagram and digging around including techreport, which has some other boards with block diagrams. I'm finding a lot of boards are only using a maximum of 36 lanes of 40. I now understand some of the reasoning’s (including compromise, poor design or nerf), but as mentioned...

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    I should have suspected that, so thanks for pointed it out. Anyway, the ASMedia ASM1142 uses either PCIe2.0x2 or PCIe3.0x1, this is on the X99 Tomahawk. I'm going to dig around a little more. Thanks for your input.

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    I've been reading the manuals and have just been looking at the MSI X99 Tomahawk, but it doesn't specify conflicts or shared resources. That board is throughing a curve ball at me, I beginning to believe the manual is crap. Do we know if USB 3.1 gen 2 is taking PCIe 3.0 lanes? it could be...

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    I have a feeling its USB 3.1 gen 2 that is taking some pcie 3.0 lanes?

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    Thanks for the response, I understand that 8x should suffice from a graphics point of view, but I’m lacking the understanding of were 8 lanes go (8, 16, 8 or 16, 16, 0 totaling 32 leaving 8 lanes left) or why if I have 3 cards installed (not specifically graphics), why I cannot run 16, 16, 8 or...

    X99 - Shared PCIe Slots, lanes and total cards?

    Hi Guys, I feel this is a daft question, but I'm stuck in a loop on this and need some help getting out of it. I'm wanting the most flexibility in expansion and performance. Ultimately I intend to have the following: Processor: 5960x PCIe: 2x GTX 1080 (PCIe 3.0 16x) 1x 10gb ethernet...

    Renew to BitDefender 2017 or move to Symantec Premium 2017 ?

    If your talking for Home, I would not go Symantec. Enterprise is a different story IMO and a different use case. I haven't used it, but I have people that have deployed several BitDefender in enterprise but I am unsure were the line is between its Home and Enterprise counterparts. Symantec...

    Radeon R9 390 in crossfire

    Hi Guys, Has anyone got any stats/benchmarks of an R9 390 in crossfire? I already have one and would consider crossfiring it with another 390. Thanks,
