OT - Western Digital admits 2TB-6TB WD Red NAS drives useshingled magnetic recording by [email protected]
**** why would 2 TB be shingled? Look we had 4 TB drives for ages before helium, shingles and other advances. Even the slim 2 cm thick drives should manage 2 TB without that crap.

CPU temp hits 80C then cools back to 55/60 [memtest] by [email protected]
I was running memtest on an LGA2011 system that seemed to have memory issues. I noticed that when memtest starts, the core temperature is up to 80 Celsius. Then it drifts back to 60 (with full 8 DIMMs). Testing only 2 DIMMs at a time it goes lower to 55 Celsius. This is single-threaded test. So...

A strange weakness in all MS Windows versions by [email protected]
It contains no real/decent programming language, unlike ms-dos that did contain QBASIC, and the C64 which also contained BASIC. Something is better than nothing. How will "our" kinds now learn to program ?! It's a bit strange. I would recommend Microsoft to think about what they could add to...

Advise for intel about integrating RAM onto chip. by [email protected]
One more posting though about the "RAM" integration attempt of intel and others onto CPUs/chips. It seems Intel is trying to be "nice" about it and trying to create an "eco" system for other RAM manufacturers to deliver "RAM" chips for integration on top of the Intel's CPUs. This tactic/strategy...

The future of the PC and especially processors and software. by [email protected]
I will write one more post for now with my thoughts on where the PC is going and also processors and software. AMD has recently proven that it is possible to place 64 cores on a chip and this is going to revolutionize the software industry. At least it has the potential to do so. Multi-threaded...
