Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Intel VIIV not really instant on/off - Intel VIIV not really instant on/off
Thu, March 30 2006 | 4:46PM | PermaLink Feedback?
This is good news for AMD fans, its 65nm manufacturing is going well. ATi's R580+ supports GDDR4, whether videocards will use this memory standard is not known though. Dell will ship Blu-Ray equipped systems for the Christmas season. Heh sneaky behaviour from Intel, who would have thought... Anyway its instant on/off feature of VIIV is in question.

So what you have is Intel claiming that it shuts down the computer, but it does not, will not, and was never planned to. If you hit that instant off feature, the machine sits there spinning away at full tilt, or nearly so, sucking down electricity 24 hours by seven. It should be ashamed of itself, needlessly wasting resources and covering it up.
