    Need new drives to upgrade our 10k SAS 6Gbps 2.5 hotplugs; recommendations?

    Man, I missed that completely, lol. I meant to say RAID 51 and 61!!! So mirrored RAID arrays, not striped. Good catch, my apologies for the mistake. I still had RAID 10 in my head.

    Looking For Ideas On Server Software Architecture

    I used proxmox for a while; it's pretty powerful. I recently dropped it in favor of just running Ubuntu with docker which works just fine for my needs. It had a lot more features but I just didn't need them. I feel docker is much simpler for my use case and I can easily build my own docker...

    Wtb midrange gpus 1050-1660 Rx550-580

    Free bump for good seller, I would have had one for you but I recently sold my old rx560 for $40 shipped.... (it was a 2gb < 75watt version that didn't need the external power connection). I have some older cards, like a 280x, that's a bit larger but in the speed realm of the cards listed (much...

    Nvidia drivers

    It shouldn't be overheating while my professors are not even hitting 5%. The laptop was barely warm to the touch (and I mean barely warmer than ambient). More like it was almost in idle state. I don't know if non ISV drivers are available, but in my business i doubt we would be allowed. I'm...

    Nvidia drivers

    Just venting, please feel free to ignore. I run AMD in all 6 of my desktops and both laptops. Everyone always talks of AMD drivers and how bad they are. Granted I've had a few minor issues, but nothing that lasted long or really affected my use. Got a sweet 9980hk laptop with an Nvidia...

    AMD raytracing techdemo

    Yes, the official cross platform has been officially released. It's based on RTX with a few (minor) tweaks that can now be implemented by anyone. This was my original point; they don't have to wait for M$ for anything. And they could even implement the current DXR if they do desired as well.

    AMD raytracing techdemo

    It is an extension written by Nvidia. The same is true for many extensions. Nothing is stopping AMD from doing their implementation in Vulkan. This is pretty common since opengl extensions be existed:. You have to test somewhere and vulkan / opengl support vendor specific extensions, very...

    Security Implications of AMD’s Cache Way Predictors - funding by Intel

    This was the point, this is a sensational piece. Real exploits are another story. To say it's "severe" and then state that it required custom kernels modifications to exploit an already mitigated exploit seems to be misleading. In reality the original (mitigated) cache issue should have been...

    Security Implications of AMD’s Cache Way Predictors - funding by Intel

    It does matter when it's a complete BS piece. They used an already mitigated issue and had to use a custom kernel mod to do it. Sorry, but if someone is already modifying your kernel you've got more issues than this.

    Security Implications of AMD’s Cache Way Predictors - funding by Intel

    That's the thing, it's using already mitigated things,.it's not even a new vulnerability, just another way to use an existing one that has since been patched. Calling it severe or new is misleading at best.

    THIS! NZXT Gets It Right Asthetically! All White Enclusure for its MB.

    Wait, they went out of style?? Say it isn't so. And to the OP, I don't think that looks any better than a regular old clean MB. I wouldn't waste $3 on a plastic cover for my MB. I use my computer, I don't need eye candy, it doesn't make it faster or better in any way. I'm more the type to...

    AMD's graphics DNA splits into two

    i9 10900k, are we having high hopes for this?

    So, that all aside, I don't have high hopes. New motherboard/platform, same IPC, 2 more cores and a crap ton more power required. Sorry you've have so many issues, but you're not likely to gain much by waiting (unless you need more cores for a specific workload). If you want back to Intel...

    AMD's graphics DNA splits into two

    Lol, no.. more likely 1 company. Like I said, the only possibility I could imagine was if they had a very specific piece of hardware (not general purpose), that they may have a reason to spin off. But even that doesn't really make sense to split. They would rather sell the server CPU + GPU +...

    AMD's graphics DNA splits into two

    https://www.intel.ai/nervana-nnp/ Just an example, if it was the same thing Intel would not be making these + gpus. The hardware can be specific to the underlying neural network rather than being more general purpose. It also doesn't need a frame buffer, texture management, hdmi support and a...

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    I agree, I'm pessimistically hopeful. I don't think it's going to be like ryzen, I think this iteration will be a bit closer, the next iteration closer and eventually on par again. Nvidia didn't stagnate like Intel did, so they aren't going to magicqlly be able to leap frog. They need to fix...

    AMD's graphics DNA splits into two

    This. Yes, different target markets, so some differences (more compute vs more pixels), but the basics between the two will still be shared. It's not like they are doing vastly different things. I could possibly see AMD coming out with an AI card more specific (obviously) to businesses, which...

    AMD's graphics DNA splits into two

    I doubt that it would split into two companies. Two divisions probably, but there is a tremendous amount of overlap between them even if they are for two different targets. I can't imagine them wanting to spin off another company. It would be like them spinning another company off for their...

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    It's not the lack of competition, it's their willingness to step on their workstation profits to deliver something unheard of to the desktop space, but you still have to pay some extra $ for it. I paid $250 for my son's 6600k brand new. It has 4/4... Intel is on the same process (still 14nm)...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Thanks, yeah they are very standard 12v batteries and I can get them on Amazon for cheap. Not very expensive but the UPS is old, I haven't had power drop in about a year, and being a home server I have nothing critical on it, 10 minutes wait for it to boot is the last thing I care about when my...

    Intel Plans To Battle AMD Ryzen 4000 In 2020 With Mass of Hyper-Threaded Processors Including 5.3GHz

    Lol, so AMD please prices are nuts? They give you 16/32 for less than $1k... What did you do before they started offering such performance? You bought 4/8 for $400-$500 and where happy. Now you get 4x the cores for 2x the price and it's rediculous, lol. You can get a 3600x for a very...

    CPU for a home server?

    I have an old power edge, it is loud and sucks down power. I'm thinking about building out a 3600 to replace it at some point to save power and have more single core speed. It's great in threading (dual 6/12 xeons, so 12/24 total with 96gb ram) but a bit slower for single threaded things and...

    AMD Motherboard + CPU Combo for old case? Would like to reuse DDR3

    In think I could use the ddr3 in my wife's machine, not that she really needs more but for the cost of shipping it may be worth an upgrade. LMK, thanks. Good decision on moving to a new platform though, doesn't make sense to skimp and buy old used parts with AMD stuff being so cheap and much...

    Why are you getting rid of it? I may have a 1600 I'd be willing to part with for a small upgrade. I have original box and cooler and I'm pretty sure it's still under warranty from MC (not sure how long). Not really super worried (it currently does it very thing I need, so not sure how much $...

    Easiest Distro to use for File sharing

    Yeah... Let me explain that to the wife on how to browse the server for old pictures of the kids one image at a time.... Or copy the entire directory before she is able to view them.

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Yeah, this would be something I would put in my home server. The only time it doesn't shut down safely is during a power outage. And if I know there is bad weather I will shut till it down (reminds me I need to replace my UPS batteries one of these days). I haven't had it drop due to power...

    Easiest Distro to use for File sharing

    That is horrible. I used winscp for transferring some small files once in while, but that's not file sharing. I don't want to have to install and configure it on all my machines and have to copy entire folders around instead of just creating a shortcut. I get sustained read/write or about...

    WTB - removable drive bay swing out door cover

    Yeah, a picture would be helpful, or part # or you know, maybe what brand , any information may help. If it's just a plastic piece you may be able to find it pretty cheaply or even get it 3d printed on the cheap (if you don't care if it's 100% perfect looking).

    Budget madness!

    I understood the point, but you're talking about people who are just trying to get into this stuff and have no clue about prices.

    Intel cuts prices by up to 74% on Xeons

    Those who want intel can still thank AMD for this. Do you think intel would be giving us more cores and cheaper prices if AMD released bulldozer 2.0 instead of ryzen? They are feeling the heat and being forced to actually be competitive again. About time Intel's price gouging is being put in...
