Way Linux OS Comparison On A Dual Xeon Scalable Gold Server
     Sun, Sep 10 2017 | 9:00A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While we routinely run various Linux distribution / operating system comparisons at Phoronix, they tend to be done on desktop class hardware and the occasional servers. This is our look at the most interesting enterprise-focused Linux distribution comparison to date as we see how Intel's Xeon Scalable platform compares on different GNU/Linux distributions when using the Tyan GT24E-B7106 paired with two Dual Xeon Gold 6138 processors. The tested configuration has 96GB of DDR4-2666 memory and 40 cores / 80 threads to see how different modern Linux distributions are affected with the latest-generation Xeon platform."

Project Build Iris – Part 2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Sep 09 2017 | 4:00P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So last week I went into detail on the case, power supply, and the fans I went with in Iris. Those are cool, but it’s the components inside that determine how fast the computer is going to be. So today I’m going to go over the “go fast” goodies so to speak. I will talk about the reasoning on the motherboard and CPU and what else is going with it. Considering that my wife ends up playing more games than I do, making sure this build was extremely fast was important. I don’t need her getting angry at me when her games don’t work!

NVIDIA's Max-Q design notebooks
     Fri, Sep 08 2017 | 4:04P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Attempting to address the problem of loud gaming notebooks, NVIDIA released a technology called WhisperMode. WhisperMode launched alongside NVIDIA's Max-Q design notebooks earlier this year, but it will work with any notebook enabled with an NVIDIA GTX 1060 or higher. This software solution aims to limit noise and power consumption of notebooks by restricting the frame rate of your game to a reasonable compromise of performance, noise, and power levels. NVIDIA has profiled over 400 games to find this sweet spot and added profiles for those games to WhisperMode technology.

HyperX Alloy Elite Review
     Fri, Sep 08 2017 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The model in for testing today isn’t exactly a direct evolution of the Alloy FPS, though it does carry over a similar style. We’ve now got dedicated media controls, along with a volume-roller, a novel new light-strip along the top of the keyboard, handy buttons for lighting and gaming controls and a wrist rest for added comfort. On paper, the additions certainly sound good, and at only £20 more than the Alloy FPS, it seems to represent good value.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
