The theoretical advantage is that, as opposed to high-level APIs like OpenGL and...

    Optimal System Memory Size for Handbrake?

    I have an AMD Quad Core @ 3.75GHz with 8 GB DDR3 1666. Handbrake MAXES out everything (which is good). Only question is should I look to get 16GB or more, or is what I have optimal? Would 16GB noticeably improve my encode times? For example a 12GB Blu Ray rip no compression seems to be taking...

    Anyone else think Nvidia will...

    up their bus width to 512-bit for their next gen card, and be done with it? With the obvious Shader/CUDA Core increase and 28nm tech. 680 can't be stopped even if they stick with 384 bit imo, so who thinks they'll go for 512 bit? Does Nvidia even need a strategy lol?

    If BD's problems remain, will we see a new socket for Piledrive?

    BD seems to have multiple problems running on the backbone of AM3. I remember reading that BD needed wider pin holes for voltage reasons. Yet all it seemed to do was the opposite they wanted and push more voltage/power consumption instead of keep it in check/performance. It also seems that the...
