What is the mystery. Maybe I can help clarify it.

Well whs I am just a bit peplexed by core clock speeds and so many Gigs of RAM at ?DDR5? and that running at whatever Mhz it states.

Now if that means or would correlate to a CPU plus the RAM in a machine then it's not so confusing. A bit like a machine sitting on a machine so to speak? or is that too simplistic?

I did read something about pipes and the like and got completely befuddled by it all. I did see what was meant about the power demands though some at 400W thats two thirds of my PSU and I am wondering if I would have to up the ante with that too.

Thanks MJF thats reassuring to know as I don't really understand a lot of it except the read and write rates

Maybe your speeds are influenced by the make of SSD and the laptop.
Definitely the case being that my laptop that I got in '09 is sata II, although that's my best guess.
With that in mind the speeds are as advertised, more or less. I'm guessing all of you guys have newer sata III hardware?
I just wish I could improve ON/OFF times just a bit more.

I did a little bit of reading on chipset drivers but for some reason it was confusing, either Intel never issued any upgrades for this processor or I'm just lost.
I might start different thread on how to make sure I have the latest chipset drivers and whatever else might influence speeds.

Thanks

You are right, GPUs can be very confusing they are definitely more complex than CPUs. And some of those GPUs are more powerful than the computers with which they shot Armstrong and Co. on the moon.

I would not get hung up about all the nitty gritty numbers. Best is to study the performance comparisons as a first cut and once you have narrowed it down to ask the guys what they think.

But for any decent GPU you will need a lot of power. Normally a new PSU goes with a new GPU - especially if you work with a stock OEM PSU. But fortunately PSUs are not too expensive - just make sure you buy from a decent company like e.g. Antec.

Thanks whs sorry late reply mate had some clearing up to do outside - storms.

Ok will do just as you said I have the Corsair HX 650 on board but seeing as that one I picked out was 400W perhaps I'd better move to a 750+W to be sure.

In actual fact my mate and I are waiting for the Ivy Bridge to arrive perhaps that might be a better option don't you think?
Then I can start with a clean slate as it were as I didn't realise that amount of power was involved. (Bit of a procrastinator)

Hum I did hear or see somewhere once they the equivalent of a Commodore 64 as the computer on board that spacecraft - thats a scary thought don't you think?

Anyway thanks for your time and trouble everyone who chipped in.

I am not such a fan of brand new technology especially since you will probably need a brand new board too - have been close to the development of that stuff myself for 35 years.. Remember the fiasco they had with the i-series at the beginning. Rumor has it that this adventure cost them 1 Billion bucks.

I think you would be well advised to wait at least 6 months after release of Ivy Bridge - at least that's what I would do. I never buy a new car model in the first year either.

You are so right whs I didn't mean we were going to dive in straight away like you said look at the fiasco (and thats being polite) that surrounded th Sandy Bridge boards.

Plus I never buy a brand spanking new car unless it is into it's second or third "version". Never fails to amaze me how a car gets so obsolete in such a short time. Suppose it is the same with computers the one you buy is outdated as you walk out the shop eh?

Yeah, very right. The wife bought a Gateway laptop a few years ago. But there was something wrong with the ethernet unit. We went back to BestBuy to exchange it for the same model (because other than the problem she liked it). They told us that this was an 'old model' that they did not stock any more - and that was 3 weeks after the initial purchase.
