    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    Haven't completed the transition but I'm going brickless with only 5.78 liters total volume ;)

    And with two 2.5" drives! :thumb:

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    ^ Yeah, that second idea is basically a different case altogether. Not something to replace L5.

    Completed Lone Industries L5 - 4.6L Mini ITX

    Hey Lone, you know I'm a fan :thumb: Combined with my experience with the Realan e-i7 case, I'd like to humbly make a set of recommendations for your next iteration: I believe the front fan positions are not optimal. Airflow in that direction is broken by the DIMMs and it's clashing with the...

    Windows 10 version 2004 (May 2020 Update) is now available.

    That's really not fair. I've been using Edge as my daily driver in the last month, and I'm not looking back. Besides, isn't Chrome known for terrible memory optimization? Not that I'd know, I haven't used it for years now...

    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    @CubanLegend No, I'm not saying we have to include memory or storage benchmarks. The point is, taking the geometric mean of whatever number of benchmarks is the way to go. At this point, CPU and GPU measures are sufficient, I agree. TimeSpy is totally relevant and should be used IMO. But CB...

    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    CPU, GPU and Volume? Well, not exactly... It's about "Performance" per "Liter". Liter is easy. So, we need a good definition of what "Performance" is. Brainstorming: If we start counting the performance of components in a computer system, we should then start talking about Memory and Storage as...

    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    Thank you for actually getting it! ;) When you keep the numerator constant and keep changing the exponent of the Volume in the denominator, you will certainly impact the rankings. I truly believe PPL measure should be Performance / Volume, as the name implies. Then, one just needs to define...

    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    To begin with, I'm not angry, just trying to tell you that you came off too quick and in fact wrong by telling me that what I said is incorrect. It is clear that you do not know what you're talking about, or insisting on misunderstanding what I said. I'll walk you through it. First off...

    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    I think you should read more carefully. I didn't say the formulas are equal. I said, and I quote "rankings are equivalent". That means both formulas would produce the same "ranking" of systems. I'm not sure what you think is incorrect in what I wrote... I said to use directly Volume (measured...

    Discussion PPL - Performance Per Liter - Round 3 - Compute Edition...?!?

    Multiplication already balances CPU and GPU measures. No need to take a square-root there. Not saying it's wrong but it brings nothing to the table. Plus, going with your formulation, volume becomes much much more important. Your ranking is equivalent to ((CPU*GPU)/(Volume^3))/100 Compared to...

    Production Velka series cases for ultra compact and portable desktops

    From what I read on the website, both Velka 5 and 7 will now use internal GPU connectors to route IO to the back (2x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0). This means they're using a 90-degree folded flexible PCI-E riser, since the motherboard will have its IO out the back.

    Looking for SFF case suggestions

    I don't know if I would look beyond M1 with those requirements.

    A little update before we wrap this round up... After some RAM tuning and GPU overclock: (9643*3951)/(6.6^1.5)/100 = 22470 https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/46584239
