    Are we talking mobo headers or the USB3 connectors used for portable/pocket external drives? Because ones used for external drives are so utterly shit, insecure and unreliable...



    Such a piece of shiiiiiiit

    Can only agree with that, how come they're so much more loose than Micro USB? (Which is already dreadful)

    I get the need for going thinner compared to standard USB A since devices are getting thinner too, but making them shorter was dumb because then they just disconnect too easily.


    You need to go DEEP to ensure it fits well and leaves both parties satisfied.

    Is that an Innuendo?

    Just finished that new Tomb Raider game, was quite suprised that I was interested enough to continue playing. As i haven't had much patience with single player games over the latest years. Never seen such fluent controls/movement in a TR game to date, really nice. Just not going to even attempt the multiplayer though.

    Gave my 670 a kick in the nuts though at ultimate preset (custom ultra shadows), running it only at an avg of 52fps.

    Got a new WD Caviar Blue 1TB to replace my mechanically failed hard drives thanks to the motherboard power fail issues a couple weeks back. Even though my data is all lost, for the most part, unless I have $1,000 or so... I am making it through.

    Check out this benchmark though... O_o

    Isn't that technically impossible with HDDs without RAID? I mean, that's heading for SSD territory.

    Technically impossible based on what? :P

    Hard drives can improve as technology improves, as well. :P

    The speed of a hard drive increases as the density on the platters increase.
    Those kinds of speeds looks like cached data to me, not necessarily SRT but maybe the HDD-cache.

    I don't know, we'll see how it holds up.

    90MB/s at 4k = ~23k IOPS, not possible with a mechanical drive, either the benchmark is flawed or it is indeed cached data as Tetris suggested. Even the fastest mechanical drives only reach about 370 IOPS.

    You can compare the numbers to this 1TB 10K RPM VelociRaptor.

    Actually that disk is a 1TB platter version or in other words WD10EZEX which is currently the only 7200rpm with a single TB platter. Nowadays the WD10EZRX even outperforms the WD black series..

    With that density the head/header (?) needs to move less so more performance.

    Maybe all the Deltrus's bad karma has finally reached it's limit and he got a dream drive that performs like nothing else. ^_^
