    Are NVMe PCI-E 3.0 x4 and NVMe PCI-E 4.0 x4 the same physical size?

    Feeling lazy to do google search but I think they have the same overall footprint but physically the 4.0x4 has greater physical electrical conductor size or contacts. It must be designed to physically elctrically conduct better and this is why to get best conduction you have to have a...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    As I have presented RAID 0 NVME works on my Acer Nitro 5 but only from MS Windows 10 hardware programmed control. My Acer Nitro 5 does have a ene I/0 controller. Photo of ene I/O controller on my Acer Nitro 5 motherboard attached for reference. Southbridge is a type of nomenclature used for...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    I still would prefer to have my main processing progams on the two nvme faster drives and use the Sata ssd for reliable data back up. This notebook is being used as a portable work station and for video/audio/music fun. It's a nice powerful budget notebook but i wish the low level motherboard...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    Thanks. Very informative. I have abandoned ship on my RAID 0 efforts because my motherboard doesn't support low level RAID 0 via BIOS control. I'm going to install Windows 10 64 bit in the P31 0 NVME slot and the other P31 in the 1 NVME slot for programs and S31 in the SATA for back up non...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    The fans on my notebook were observed to be running at very low speed. I didn't have the custom fan control application running at the time of testing but I'm not sure if the notebook's fan controller software operates off of the NVME temperature feed back sensor. Which benchmark did you use...

    SK Hynix Gold 2xP31 RAID 0 1TB + S31 1TB Mobile Notebook Ryzen 5 4600h

    The stock NVME drive used thermal pad and made contact with the heat sink. If I would have left the paper sticker on the P31 NVME without thermal pad it would not make contact with the heatsink. These P31 drives do get hot. Highest temp I've seen is 68C when copying 256GB partion to the RAID...

    Having a tough time figuring out the best RAID 0 configuration for fresh new Windows 10 install on the NVME drives in RAID 0. Coming close to get the software configures. Acer has not supportive information on how to do this in any manual that I'm aware of. Probably the best implementation...

    Gaming PC... designed around storage??

    I'm not sure I've never done it but apparently it's possible with the card. I would use that card for RAID 0 on all 4 slots. The use other storage drive connections on a motherboard using designed interface not part of the RAID 0.

    Gaming PC... designed around storage??

    For a gaming rig or flat out supreme work station storage speed is going to become a bottleneck in processing speed if it is lagging a process. AMD has powerful multicore processing for game loads or any process load. Fast memory controller, HIGH bandwidth PCI express lanes. For gaming...

    ACER Aspire 3 Ryzen 2200u with Samsung 860 EVO M.2

    I'm not sure how i got the numbers. I returned the Acer 3 because the display was terrible. I installed the same 860 EVO in a Thinkpad E485 with Ryzen 5 2500u and it was not able to see it. Wierd. I put a 970 EVO in the ThinkPad E485 and it sees it and works. Note the EVO 970 does not...

    Why is AMD's Zen more efficient than intel's Core?

    R5 less impedance, less load, less heat, same IHS thermal transfer design. Should show improved electrical quality/continuity performance..... Even at 1080p gaming.
  32. SonDa5

    Why is AMD's Zen more efficient than intel's Core?

    Better designed electrical circuitry for flow of electrons to switch 0s and 1s. Better IHS with gold to transfer heat and lower circuit resistance. I think the R5 series will perform even better than R7 core for core.

    AMD Ryzen 1700 on the Test Bench Under Water

    Looks like there is alot of room for improvement on Ryzen water block design. This is how I would design the block for IHS on R7 series. 1. Entire IHS needs to make contact with block. 2. Identify hot spots of IHS under load with infared camera and design liquid flow through input and...

    Ryzen Delid Cooling test: No Significant Improvement

    It might make a huge difference if the heat sink is saturated with heat and not able to transfer heat due to thermal transfer design. The heat sink though large had a very weak fan. Also his results did not capture the same conditions. He should have used exact same cpu with the exact same...
