    need guild on wow

    I'm on Dalaran Horde. I'll make an OverDosed Community thing tonight so people in the clan can talk and meet each other. I don't think there's much traction with the Silvermoon guild unfortunately.
  7. I had one of just a few perm B Tals back in... 2009ish? That was quite expensive. I don't remember how much, though.

    M.2 Drives... The more you know...

    Tons of people are still using Z97 and Haswell / Devil's Canyon processors. Like.. probably a lot more people than are using Kaby Lake or Coffee Lake processors. I think your timeline is off. PCIe 3.0 debuted in 2010? PCIe 3.1 was 2013/2014. Haswell / Devil's Canyon processors were end of 2013/2014. These are all relevant: Also, PCMark simulates the actual applications. Such as specific games or applications. Not just arbitrary reading/writing I said M.2 is dope. I didn't say NVMe is dope. M.2 != NVMe. NVMe is silly.

    M.2 Drives... The more you know...

    Anecdotal evidence is irrelevant. My quite old W10 installation takes ~13 seconds to cold boot to system ready with several apps loaded on startup on a Samsung 850 Evo. I read the article. It's interesting, but it presents a test bench that is unrealistic for the vast majority of users and uses benchmarks that are synthetic, thus also irrelevant to the average user. Synthetic benches cannot be compared and projected to real world applications. Feel free to break the topic.

    M.2 Drives... The more you know...

    Yes I think all 3 of us knew that... I was only addressing the statement that m.2 are much faster than normal SSDs. They're not. They're exactly the same in SATA mode, which is how most of them are run by most people. If you want a faster drive, you want NVMe. Unfortunately, NVMe is only actually faster in very large read/write sessions. Think 4K videos. Also, m.2/NVMe drives can get very hot and have even seen thermal throttling depending on case airflow. M.2 is dope, though.

    M.2 Drives... The more you know...

    Those are estimates. They're not accurate. At all. Real world application has SATA and m.2 SSDs being basically identical. Especially in gaming. NVMe m.2 drives are another story. Maybe that's what that graph is talking about? By graph I meant table.
  12. I have so many inputs... I want proof of the highlighted bits please.
