G-Tec

I've got an external 1tb raid made by G-Tec. I've used it in software raid o for about a year and a half without any problems, and it's been adequate for my purpose so far. It seems to have done ok...

That's good. I think it's nice to have that option.

RE: Wow

Great stuff. I think magnetic hard disks will be a thing of the past before all that long.

RE:Esata Raid

I'd go with ESATA. I think Caldigit has a good reputation but it's a bit expensive for what it is. For about $200 you can get a 5 bay external esata enclosure with a port multiplier. Meaning that...

RE:Drives for Raid O

I think for Canopus HQ and what you want to do with HDV, you do not need 10,000 RPM drives for your raid. Don't scrimp on the drives however, as there are a lot of drives out there that don't have...

RE:Time for me to hang it up.

Yep, I'll hang it up here too. I agree that Xeon has long been top dog for some computing tasks, and not for others. I once owned one. At this particular moment in time however buying one would...

RE:Xeon

Right now I can run my $289 i7 substantially faster than any Xeon in the majority of computer tasks. In select tasks which may be the primary focus of most people on this forum, I can run it as fast...

RE:Nehalem Technology

RE: Don't need i7 965

Point is you don't need a i7 965. It's a big waste of money. You can buy a i7 920 for $289 and run it at 3.2 no problem at all on the stock fan. I run mine on an after market fan at 3.6, and edit in...

RE: I7 vs Xeon

Just a point that i7 has hyperthreading so it has 4 actual cores and 4 virtual cores. Also i7 architecture has the memory contorller on the chip, and a new way of shifting data around. There is a big...

Yep, I assume whatever Intel comes up with for newest server will be quite substantially faster than any single i7, but I think that fastest new i7 likely is not that much slower than current 8 core...

RE:Xeon vs i7

Yep, I agree Xeon may make sense for some people, mostly professionals who are earning money with NLE. I don't have any figures on this, but I doubt that most people who have a NLE setup on their...

NLE Problem

Not much software is well optimized to make use of all those cores? In the real world how much faster is Xeon 8 cores over I7 4 cores in applications? I really don't know the precise answer, but I...

RE:Xeon Overkill

I think Nehalem dual quad Xeon machines would be pretty useless overkill for Edius, or even anywhere near normal use of photoshop, or even AE. My i7 920($300) running at 3.3 with 12 gis of 1600 DDR3...

RE:Edius NLE Monster Box

I higly recommend the new Intel i7 processor. The 2.6 is by far the best buy at about $300. It can very easily and safely be clocked to 3.2 on the fan that Intel ships with it.

I want to buy Edius 5 and Spark. I see that if you buy Edius 5 bundled with the spark, Titlemotion Pro is not included with Edius 5 package, as it would be if I got Edius 5 software only. To...
