76  Hardware / Power Supply - PSU / Re: BFGTech ES-800 800w Power Supply - Review by [H]ard|OCP on: March 03, 2008, 08:00:47 PM
Wow.  Pretty hard to hear this coming from a member of the Fudzilla Crew - after all, you guys are all about the latest and greatest.  I think this BFG 800w PSU will give those 1 kilowatt "gotta have it" enthusiasts a run for their money.

Do you think i messure power-consumption for fun? Smiley
If you read the E8400 review and calculate a second HD3870 into the graphs, than you will get about 90W more for the second card... but be sure I will check that out, when I have some spare time.

Anyone using more than two graphic cards or more than one dual-gpu card, has either too much money and does not care about the costs, is just stupid or he (girls would not do such illogical buys, except it's shoes or bags Wink ) needs a dick extension. With most games, they don't scale that well with two cards, three or more gets only worse. In autumn we get RV770 cards, which will wipe the floor with 8800/9600/9800 cards, except so called "nVidia only" Games, where the engine is programmed only for nVidia architecture such as Crysis. Of course games can be slower or faster on some cards, but that much difference means they have optimized the engine for nVidia only... and personally I do not support such unethical beheaviour and that's one more reason for me not to consider nVidia at all.

I was also very glad that ATI broke the chain of hardware "optimisation", but nVidia continues now with software-optimisations just to get the dick some points longer... they should concentrate on bugs and better interface.

77  Hardware / Hard Disk Drive / Re: Samsung F1 - 2 x HD502IJ, 2 x HE502IJ, or 1 x HD753LJ? I Need A New RAID Co on: March 03, 2008, 07:44:15 PM
Ahh, that's very good news.  I'm just about ready to order two of these for my RAID0 setup.  But should I wait for the RAID Edition to be released?  (HE753LJ), or will it not matter?  I really want these as soon as possible, but I don't want to risk any performance loss or failure down the road.

Good question, my 500GB are working since 1.5 years 24/7 (not always, but most of the time) and they did not crash yet. I would anyways suggest to make a backup anyways. Another question is how much it will cost Smiley

78  Welcome to Fudzilla Forum / General Discussion / Re: UK prices are a joke! on: March 03, 2008, 07:40:41 PM
don't get me wrong - the Anglo-Saxons are part of Europe Cheesy

Eliots point of view ("more warranty - more expensive") is quite true I guess. That's sometimes also a reason why we get products later here in Euroland - more regulations for the companies concerning health and quality standards before they can release a new product - and that's a matter of cost also, and we have to pay for it.

They don't produce for U.S. or Euro, they all produce for Euro if they want to do worldwide. Two different lines do cost more in production and warehousing. Also Japan and even China are implementing EU regulations concering health-issues. The problem is/was/will be always the U.S. with such corrupt and stupid politicans working there. (That does not mean, in Euroland the politician are better Wink)

79  Software / Programs / Re: (U)EFI - Extensible Firmware Interface on: March 03, 2008, 06:18:38 PM
if you read about EFI, it's always the talk about intel and apple, but what about amd ? do they plan to implement the "next generation" of BIOS ? and if so, when will it happen ?
i believe i won't get an answer like " hi thank you for asking, the date will be ... " but maybe you will ?!

at some point they will, but it's a question of cost too.
While a standard BIOS can fit inside 8Mbit, you need at least 32Mbit for EFI... It does not do anything better except some icons, which AMI already invented in the dark ages of 486. The only advantage I see is to implement a small linux where you can play videos, listen to music, browse the interweb without the need to boot up windows... They could also turn the PC into a game-console which would be fun  Cheesy

80  Hardware / Notebooks / Re: MSI GX600 on: March 03, 2008, 06:14:21 PM
Oh yeah you can only oc the CPU, Im sure they could find a way to push a button and oc the GPU.

The problem is not to overclock but to get rid of the heat... while CPUs don't get hot much more when only slightly overclocked, due the masses of transistors a GPU uses, heat goes up really fast... So you need to increase the airflow of the cooling solution, use more heatpipes, use more space generally speaking... more space increases the hight of the notebook which isn't what the people want. So be patient, MSI is trying hard to accomplish that, but they need first to develop a better cooling solution to do so.

81  Hardware / Power Supply - PSU / Re: Dell PSU on: March 03, 2008, 06:07:37 PM
What do you guys think about Dell Powersupplies? I have a 305 watt with 22amps on dual 12v. Anybody think I can push a 8800GT? I heard Dell underrates their psus too.

why not?

depands on your configuration, but Dell does not stuff their machines with lots of harddics....

cool, just another PSU the masses don't need....
they should do a 250W PSU and I would be happy...

I have some 750GB F1 Samsungs in use, but not yet heavily due no spare time.

The drive is indeed extremly silent, it gets not that hot, but I would not suggest to put in small cases without air cooling. The price is under €100,- now, which makes it the cheapest harddisc per GB in Euroland.

84  Hardware / Processors - CPU / Re: Difference Between Q9450 Part Numbers BX80569Q9450 / BX80569Q9450A ? on: March 03, 2008, 05:45:10 PM
But back to topic - when do you guys think the intel Q9450 will be available - I am waiting for about 6 weeks now ... Sad

We don't expect it for some weeks... Maybe in May ... as long Intel can't ramp up 45nm process, it will be a bit longer - and they don't need to rush, because AMD has no competitive offer.

They are also have always some "optimizations" to speed up fps in trade for quality.

I also have an ATI card and for not that hardcore gamers and HD3850 or HD3870 is just fine.

I thought we have 12 month of "Gewährleistung"? ... (sorry for non-germans & non-EU citizens  - there is no english word for it, it's a kind of "guarantee by law" that can't be lowered by companies - but additionally we have the "normal" guarantee from manufactures in the EU as you might know it)
Juergen

You have "Gewährleistung" for two years, but after six month you have to prove the fault on the product was there when you purchased it... Nobody is able to do so, so "Gewährleistung" is quite useless after six months.

87  Hardware / Processors - CPU / Re: Intel's Core 2 Duo E8500 Get's Tested on: March 03, 2008, 05:00:46 AM
safe? you mean save? Well im trying to save for a 3850.

Yes I mean that, english isn't my native language, but I can all write in German if that helps Wink
3850 is quite cheap anyways...

88  Hardware / Processors - CPU / Re: 45nm - So much better than 65nm? on: March 03, 2008, 03:39:48 AM
Well, back in early 2006 many people thought that AMD's new Socket AM2 was going to completely skip DDR2 and move straight on to DDR3.  However as you can see, this wasn't the case.  They're tending to back out on a lot of new technologies recently..it's becoming one of their trends - both in the CPU and GPU markets.

I wrote: IF I'm AMD I would...
So there is no connection to what happened before or what will happen ...  Wink

89  Hardware / Processors - CPU / Re: 45nm - So much better than 65nm? on: March 03, 2008, 02:51:12 AM
Even if it came out, DDR4, nothing will support it for a while.

I know, but if I'm AMD I would completly skip it  Wink

Yeah the Pentium D came with my crap Dell. Its really slow even though it has a high clock, pisses me off. I should upgrade to like a Core 2 Duo @ 1.8 for really cheap but im saving for a graphics card. 

Hmm... E21x0 are very cheap... you get 3GHz... so how much money you need to safe?  Wink
