Plenty fast indeed I don't doubt that, people say it's hard to notice the difference with SATA SSD but at times I notice how absurdly (almost aggressively
) instant some tasks get on the NVMe.
Almost wanna utter calming 'eaaasy boy, there, slowly...you don't have to jump around it's only a shrubbery' like im riding a nervous horse.
I'll enjoy loading and moving large things soon though, the relief will especially be around where my GIS hobby involves working with raster and vectors, and though I'm still a novice I don't know exactly why but some of the material means 10's of GB to load before I can comfortably do my thing, which was an absolute torture on HDD, and not even much fun on my laptop's cheap SSD.
Dunno if it will help with very large pictures and video editing, though i'll enjoy moving and editing them faster than ever before, I guess.
The reason for mine slight concern was if these discrepancies vs. the online dreamland, could mean something's not working properly on my system.
(you know, im right in the 'exaggerately triple-check everything' phase of noob-level building)
But everything seems fine AFAIK.
Here's the most common one, which is the easiest to compare to others (tho I read it's not very honest but I don't mind for now)
The ones that are noticeably lower than most benchmarks out there are the randoms at the bottom.
edit: are these the figures that point at the Samsung's sometimes mentioned poor power efficiency ?
Windows 7 -> some install that on current motherboards, using the same image modding app, and, apparently they're mostly fine drivers-wise.
So...just how much of their designs and code do Intel and AMD recycle with each of their so-called 'new' generations of products ?
I mean there's mostly common generic drivers included in that image modding app.
And there you ask people around 'Can I still use my old OS and stuff on this new hardware
?' and the inevitable 'NO! IMPOSSIBLE, ABSURD, HERESY!
' comments typically pile up first, like 8/10 times.
I'm not much of a technical person and yet it always seemed to me almost everything is possible with machines, lol, whatever.
On a different note, I have also tried XTU and although the i7-9700 maintains 4.35 GHz on all 8 cores without breaking beyond 70°C (had to set two Turbo Boost sliders to 'unlimited' otherwise it would quickly throttle down way before that),
I have also accidentally dowloaded and tried a profile that pushed it further like 4.50 GHz on all 8 cores, with temps beyond 75°C and close to 80°C this time...
...and of course I haven't written down the original default settings.
Well I have simply reeuced the main voltage and got the same orioginal performance back, but I wonder if there' s a simple way to 'reset' CPU settings without hassle (?), I mean without resetting the bios or something annoying.
