Beginners Guide: How To Install / Remove an Intel Socket LGA2011 CPU

AMD Ups The Workstation Ante With A New FirePro Driver  - PCstats.com AMD Ups The Workstation Ante With A New FirePro Driver

"Whether you are an owner of an ATI FirePro V3800 that retails for just over $100 USD, the proud owner of an ATI FirePro V8800 that goes for over $1,300 USD, or any of the FirePro products in-between, you will want to update your graphics driver when AMD puts out their next stable software update. Back in March AMD put out an amazing FirePro Linux driver that increased the performance of their workstation graphics cards already on the market (and the other Evergreen-based workstation cards that entered the market soon after) by an astonishing amount. Our independent tests of this proprietary Linux driver update found that the performance in some workstation applications had increased by up to 59% by simply installing this updated driver while other OpenGL tests had just improved rather modestly with 20%+ gains. AMD though is preparing to release another driver update for Microsoft Windows and Linux that ups their workstation graphics performance even more! We have run some tests of this new beta driver against their older driver with both their low-end and ultra-high-end FirePro products and have found the improvements again to be astonishing."

"The burst read rate on the Marvell prototype drive is able to perform at a significantly higher level pulling 90 MB/s MORE data than the Intel drive. That is a 33% increase in performance over one of the fastest SSDs on the market today. The difference is even more dramatic when looking at the performance of the Marvell drive compared to the standard spindle-based hard drives."
