  2. We're seeing 1TB SSD's coming in at $120 now. The hard drive manufacturers must be starting to sweat. Reports are that costs of flash will fall even more next year. I hope the hard drive manufacturers get thrashed by cheap SSDs, for not decreasing the price of 2-3TB drives much at all in the past four years.

      @Jaxa, yeah that was my primary reason for getting one. On the Sustained reads/writes - I had to reimaged my PC last night so coped my games folder (200gb) to my Crucial P1 1TB, and sure enough 75% of the way through the write speed dropped off a cliff, 400-500mb/a down to 95mbs (that speed I think is only slightly faster than my old WD mechanical HDD.

      @Jaxa, when the SLC cache is maxxed out the perf of QLC falls to below that of a mechanical HDD. So in that instance its is a massive order of magnitude worse

      @All, you guys/girls need to be aware that the reason these 1TB are cheap is because they are using QLC nand. It has some major drawbacks -

  8. Updated my Uefi the other day and suspend to RAM finally works correctly! It took more than a literal year to be fixed. But I suppose I should be happy it got fixed at all.

      And lastly, rule of thumb, only have kb/mice plugged into any USB ports if you can help it.

      UEFI is a blight on the computer landscape, due to how inherently insecure it is - but we cant do much about it now. And regarding ASrock, I will only consider buying from them when they start offering 3yr warranties.

      So T3eD is very heavy on the modelling side then. And Ive read that 3DS max 5.1 will only run on windows Xp or below due the licensing server being 16bit native.

      That is very impressive @Judith as you have done some TDS mapping, how much of a culture shock is T3eD compared to DR..?

  22. Just in case it hasn't been mentioned here before; For Linux mappers - Dark Radiant is now part of the Solus Os software repository.
