idle power of 8500 GT by [email protected]
I got a PC which had a Sapphire HD4870 graphics card. I measured the idle power draw of the PC, and it was 249 W. I thought the HD4870 might have something to do with this, as it has two extra power connectors. I have another PC containing this card, and it can get hot. I do not need a powerful...

Combatting Oscillation with randomness for cooling fans and harddisks. by Skybuck Flying[_7_]
Hello, I just cleaned my PC today and I just noticed the fans started humming in sync. They were all running at the same speed. Perhaps the humming is cause by some dust which is on the fan blades, I am not sure, ultimately this build up probably leads to them oscillating in sync. Like soldiers...

what cards can drive multiple 2560x1600 screens? by [email protected]
A former classmate, now working for an oil company, boasted that they have a workstation with 3 monitors - nothing new there. But he said each monitor is 2560x1600. So I presume this system has two cards. And since DVI can only spew out 1920x1200 (unless you choke the refresh rate), these must be...

why don't card manufacturers say how much power it uses? by [email protected]
Is it the case that the GPU model and frequency and amount of RAM will fix the power draw, regardless of brand name? Then I suppose you could trawl through data sheets and figure something out. One might make assumptions of maximum possible power if it is a slot-powered card of PCI express version...

do 2560x1080 displays have an alphabetic *GA name yet? by BW[_4_]
Most resolutions have a designation such as WXGA, QXGA, WSVGA, HD et cetera. I have only seen the 2580x1080 referred to as "wide HD" or "ultrawide" in some reviews and adverts. Has VESA or whoever given up assigning names to these things?

Skybuck's review of GTC 2013 key note. by Skybuck Flying[_7_]
Hello, The GTC 2013 keynote wasn't as exciting as previous years, it was actually quite boring except for a few nice things and even one slightly exciting thing. Many items were discussed which were already presented last year, like path tracing/ray tracing, car sales, remote visualization and...

Hello, After reading all of the negative reviews this game has been getting/receiving I do feel it's time that I write a little review about it. Unfortunately I feel I am not completely in the position to write a full/fair review about it because of two reasons: Techno-ruin/stutter-bable:

I updated my nVIDIA GeoForce 8800GT driver a week or so ago to version 310.90. But I hit a major problem. I use FRAPS (mainly to record Google Earth tours) and the frame rate dropped from its typical 20-30 fps to an unacceptable 5-6 fps. Some googling last night revealed that it's a...
