Win10 ISO on archive.org?? by [email protected]

Microsoft downloads only vomits forth the latest version for punters. If one searches for ISO of older builds, you get...

Intel's Cannon Lake (10 nm) delayed by [email protected]
LONG time coming. Samsung is making 10 nm stuff, but Intel claims their 10 nm is denser than Samsung's. It seems Intel, AMD, Samsung have different definitions of nm lithography. So far, there is a mobile i3. I await something with more grunt. Running Skylake-X on sustained AVX-512 will almost melt...

What is a "Softraid controller"? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
I thought software raid was simply using windows to mirror two drives, on standard disk controllers. So what is this card I have called a Silicon Image Softraid controller? It does hardware raid (as I would name it) - I can set up arrays in it's own bios before an OS loads. So why do they call...

PCI express graphics in a 1 lane slot? by Jimmy Wilkinson Knife
PCI express graphics in a 1 lane slot? Yes I know I can fiddle with extension ribbons, but why have they designed the 1 lane slots to physically not allow longer card to go into them? Is it to stop the user squashing motherboard components which may be nearby? Obviously it would run slower, but...

KEWL by Flasherly[_2_]
Thought my 200-watt amp was like 50-years-old: reality checks in to say it's actually 30 and only made from 1985-88. ...Way back when everything was 8-ohm speaker loads. A number of good amps, however, placed for added feature-minded class consciousness, provided for speaker arrays -- in case an...

I got two Nvidia cards by [email protected]
I got two Nvidia cards at a garage sale, along with a large Dell monitor that apparently was made to go with them. The cord on the monitor is not the usual SVGA connector, it's got 24 pins. (3 rows of 8 pins), plus a large flat pin on the end. These cards look like they were costly. There is a...

Strange occurence with SSD by Larc[_3_]
I have a Samsung 850 EVO 124G SSD that I use for the system drive in my #2 desktop. I recently noticed that more than 60G was being used by the C drive. I hadn't installed nearly that much stuff. A Macrium backup done just 4 days earlier was only 16.5, not nearly large enough for 60+G. I checked...
