    At least they thought to give PC gamers the option of a console input (was very useful in Skyrim for spawning NPCs or items that had bugged - and also useful for less constructive use, like spawning in 100 dragons or filling a pub with turnips). I wonder if they just thought "I can't be bothered fixing that for the few gamers that will buy the game for PC, I'll just give them access to a "GM" console so they can fix it themselves."

    In other news, external PCI-E enclosures are coming...



    That one only has a 250W PSU and drivers are an issue, but imagine if you had one with full PCI-E 2.0 16x or even PCI-E 3.0 - have a portable rendering box with a couple of graphics cards in it, or rather smaller enclosures for a portable PCI-E sound card to go with a portable beamer.

    They've been showing concepts since early 2011, so about time they materialise.

    they've had them for much longer, the new ones are just thunderbolt

    the only ones that have ever truly worked the the infiniband links for rack mount setups

    could that work as an external GPU option or would TB lack bandwidth?
    would make high end laptop shopping way easier and turns it into a monster performance machine when needed? (only needs a good CPU/screen/ssd then)

    Thunderbolt can do up to 10Gb/s IIRC. Enough for a graphics card.

    ultrabook during school and a monster gaming rig at home? now that would be a worthwhile investment for many gamers likely.
    also QQ deal i spotted on a gtx 690 changed status to reserved -_- (if i'd be any good ofc)

    well if you want to game, you would have to use a PCIe expansion with infiniband, there really is no way around it, but none of that plugs into a laptop

    infiniband is up to 300Gb/s with extreme low latency, it's used for connecting modules in a supercomputer

    but you can find it in PCIe expansion boxes

    well, if you wanted to run say a 690, you would need 16Gb/s, TB is only 10 and has overhead

    it's possible to create a laptop PCIe slot expander, but that wouldn't be usable on most laptops

    It's like the Korean sellers have a portal gun or something.

    Didn't expect it to arrive this fast, it's already in Greenland. Going to pick it up at the post office tomorrow.

    My instinct is always to follow the mouse.
    Seems like good value. I take it you bought five?

    Okay, so I'm rather perplexed, and I think I've asked this before, but...

    Can y'all think of a reason my C drive (SSD, if it matters) is seemingly randomly filling up? I've lost about 5 gigs that I can't account for (it generally goes bit by bit, probably a couple hundred MB at a time, when I notice it). I use CCleaner regularly, I delete the cache (and, well, basically all options in CCleaner) in Firefox, I delete the items in my downloads folder... I just can't think of where the data is going. Any ideas, guys?

    Assuming you have your SSD optimized (hibernate/pagefile/etc disabled), add up the folder sizes in your Program Files and see which one is bloating...sort by date modified. Can't think of anything else : /

    System restore images take up space on a storage drive, but tend to be hidden from view. Until I realized what it was, I had about 500GB usable of my 1500GB external, even if I deleted everything.
