    Async compute gets 30% increase in performance. Maxwell doesn't support async.

    Yepp, kick him when he's down - these are you're orders? /disgust /hardocp

    Part Identification Help

    The part you are talking about is PCB mount, the one from the picture is obviously panel-mount. IMO, the problem piece is a used one; knowing that the movie industry is all about image, I give 90% chance that it isn't in the catalog(maybe in one from the mid 70's). To give you some ideas to...

    Part Identification Help

    I'm pretty sure that the connector what the OP is asking for is the one on the same picture, on the pilot left chest; the difference is that the top is mounted facing front, and the bottom is mounted facing back.

    How do you label small cables?

    It's a transparent protective label; I've used to cover some sh1tty printed labels. As performance: it is recommended for harsh environmental conditions(think mines, or oil sands), and it survives, sticking; I've seen some after a few(~5) years in the field, and they done a wonderful job...

    Samsung UE590 & UE850 FREESYNC monitors

    According to the monitor specs, it supports 4k over HDMI 1.4a, which is 4k@30Hz. It is or it isn't included in FreeSync range - until official specs are out, anybody's guess is good, but it shows that the monitors are capable of 30Hz.

    Generate Fan RPM Signal W/O Fan

    From the Mouser page: Supply Voltage - Max: 6 V; If you want to use something on 12V, I would recommend to look in the 4000 series, something like the CD4010BE.

    Good (but cheap) Display for a DIY Arcade cabinet?

    Well, I've carried a few of these, and they are 4:3, and do 1080i.

    The MHz keyboard, next gen thoughts

    AFAIK, HAL sensors doesn't need debouncing, you can service interrupt to the micro immediately. If you can, give them a try.

    LG is coming out with a 34" 21:9 monitor that supports Freesync

    Intel is very much on board of the adaptive sync technology, since the iX-XXX mobile series. Read: the Intel iGPU's support the VESA extensions since the introductions a few years ago.

    It's official, Nvidia will not support Mantle

    Both of your paragraphs are referring to the same test, so no "out of context" excuse here. Care to comment?

    It's official, Nvidia will not support Mantle

    I believe him. Honestly. The only remaining question is: what did he programmed? VCR's? Alarm clocks? Thermostats? Because even these would be a serious chellenge for him... :D

    Mantle pushes FX-8350 to beyond i7-4960X performance.

    I'll take that as confirmation that you really enjoyed the taste of your own medicine. Glad to serve you back, and I hope that every flame-bait of yours will get returned to you with interest, something like this:

    Here, I've corrected for ya'.:D

    Mantle pushes FX-8350 to beyond i7-4960X performance.

    My main point would is: the sponsorship agreement is never for just one subject, there's always more. Here's two examples: 1. AMD paid EA $8mil to implement Mantle in BF4. 2. Nvidia paid Ubisoft $5mil to lock out AMD from the Watch Dogs optimizations. Both statements have equal quantity of...

    Mantle pushes FX-8350 to beyond i7-4960X performance.

    What about when mentioning the EA&AMD deal, tell about the copies of BF4 included in that deal, which later was bundled with the "Never Settle" promotions?

    Mantle pushes FX-8350 to beyond i7-4960X performance.

    Post is according to the chosen title(Bulls[H]it Master). All windows benchmark(eting) are optimized for Int-el(yes, I tease them); once when you enter onto the leveled playing field, the situation is radically changed. Enjoy...

    how to completely turn off my motherboard's USB ports?

    You can try to set windows to turn off the USB devices with a registry entry: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\usbhub\HubG] "DisableOnSoftRemove"=dword:00000001 Save the coded part as something.reg, then add to the regsitry...

    1. no comment 2. the small yellow cap I would estimate @35-50V 3. the manufacturer of the IC's was National Semiconductor; see the 8250 UART on the side for a clear shot of the logo.

    PicoPSU Adapter Advice...

    I've mentioned the 360 PSU because: 1. It's a good chance to get it cheaply/free; 2. Building quality is better(even the aftermarket ones) then the no-name power bricks. One more thing which i would consider(my similar build has been modded) is to replace the cheap barrel connectors with XLR...

    PicoPSU Adapter Advice...

    If you don't look for a real silent build, you can mod an XBOX360 PSU, which I'm sure that you can get it for less, maybe even in your neighborhood; those PSU's are 130-200W, depending on model.

    PicoPSU Adapter Advice...

    Unless the fans are extremely high powered, I don't see any problems to power that build from that brick; as advice, I would use power bricks with class V or VI efficiency, which - indirectly - show you the quality of build.

    ASUS A88X-PRO AMD Socket FM2+ Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Well, that's not an explanation; the times are changed, maybe it's time to change the testing methodology - pretty much that was my "question/request". And if you have nothing but e-whine, better keep it for yourself.

    ASUS A88X-PRO AMD Socket FM2+ Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I would estimate that ANY Intel quad to be faster than the tested AMD APU, there's no competition. But the fairness would ask to level the playing field, otherwise anybody can point out (imaginary or real)bias.

    ASUS A88X-PRO AMD Socket FM2+ Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I don't see why it can't be applied to CPU/APU's too; care to explain? And about YOUR reading comprehension: Fail, even in the cherry-picking.

    Any conclusions?

    ASUS A88X-PRO AMD Socket FM2+ Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Well, proper way to compare APU's/CPU's is in the same platform(MB+APU) price bracket, IMNHO. And where is the usual "maximum playable quality" settings test? I was expected something better from [H], this is more like a fail.

    Well, a quick search on the site for "e12" revealed the following link: http://www.dx.com/p/sencart-e12-3w-6500k-270lm-smd-5060-6-led-white-light-bulb-white-transparent-ac-85-265v-170340#.U0Ytzlcv0-U Now you can complain about the price :P

    Mantle sparking some competition - DirectX & OpenGL getting Low-level Access

    Your example is one of the DX functions. How many DX functions exist? High tens? And what about OGL? PS: If you have nothing accurate to say then don't post.

    Mantle sparking some competition - DirectX & OpenGL getting Low-level Access

    One thing, which DX/OGL will never do well, but Mantle is designed around it: multithreading.

    from what it looks like, Is Mantle a game changer to you?

    You forgot to mention two IMPORTANT facts: 1. AMD get the MS support for Server 2003 on x64 AFTER publicly stated FRAND licensing for the x64 architecture; yes, even VIA is using it. 2. Intel NEVER intended to license IA64 to any competitor. And I'm happy that monstrosity is dead, with no...

    Does Y Adapter Split Voltage?

    One: the Y-adapter what you originally linked is good for max. 5A with some goodwill; I'm more pessimistic than Lunas, and I would say the cable is 22 gauge. Second: There's a possibility to use a 19V brick for both the computer and the monitor, but you will need to change the Pico PSU to...

    Mantle Interview With AMD's Guennadi Riguer

    Hmmm... In which function call can I specify the QUANTITY of memory allocated for a task? Because none of the above will let me specify such a basic thing.
