  • On the MBP M2s, the 512 is also suffering the same drop in chips and subsequent perf hit. Not as severely as the M2/256, but still considerable. see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvfO8CHIUC4&t=729s ...
  • that one is a bit of a double whammy - 1.5 generations out of date, and 16G laptop sodimms were unusual in that time. where you typically got 8 and had to be happy with it, short of going to the ...
  • I saw a different conclusion,   2% faster in LR, 40% slower in video tasks.   Runs hot.   And costs less than $100 less than a good price on the Studio. Maybe future software optimizations will ...
  • the article is interesting, but its claim about Studio level performance is belied by it losing the the listed Studio in nearly every metric.   Only at the bottom do they switch from an Studio ...
  • the metrics embargo ended Tuesday, so we're starting to get information.   The big development seems to be that getting the base side SSD means a terrible drop in performance compared to the prior ...
  • Those sources are as good as it gets, so likely true.   I wouldn't try to put in 2x4 unless I had them for free.   DDR2 memory now is hard to come by. That said, I've put 12 and 16 GB into QNAP's ...
  • the intel data sheet and perhaps the chipset specs are the true determinants. very old memory can be pricy (or dirt cheap used), so going too high can be a mistake.
  • The highest numbers will come from tests that copy a single giant object, like a DVD image.  Those are the ones that are advertised, but it often doesn't apply much to the experience of the user.  ...
  • There's a common sizing target of 100% over normal load, so it spends most of its like serving 30-50%.   This gives headroom as it ages.   If you're at 10% most of the time, it's much less efficient. ...
  • And many of those are illegal/non enforcible.  Owners have a general right to service/modify their property and vendors cannot use this to skip out on their warranty obligations. QNAP owners can ...
  • whoops!  read that as 3070ti vs 3070.   Makes a lot more sense with a 4. damn eyes.
  • I have an old XPS13 I'm inclined to do that for, to use as a sacrificial travel laptop.   The only downer is it's completely incapable of viewing 4k gopro videos.  But when I travel with ipad ...
  • on what valid test?   5-20% seems much more likely. As for the OP, was there a question in your post?    The die has been cast, so the opinions now have little value. I would agree with others that ...
  • as opposed to the legions of fanatics who post gushing non videos, and then take it personally when any critique is raised? Your own words - it was a video comparing to a machine that hadn't even ...
  • the Studio is cheaper with these specs, I believe.   You pay a lot to upgrade from 16 to 32 on the mini.   It's standard on the base Studio.   Pure CPU seems to be slower than at least the 12/19 ...
  • but which one?  10/16 or 12/19?
  • Sony coverage with housings was a lot spottier in the early 2010s.    Can you find a housing for any other model using the Alpha mount?   But even then, do you have suitable lenses for UW use ...
  • A lot of popular utilities like this try to monetize the eyeballs, and worse are the slimy sites that try to piggyback on this.   With those, there is always the risk of a malware substitution, so ...
  • It appears that the M2 pro might be a 30W TDP, but they're never that explicit about this sort of information and TDP has become a rather grey figure anyway.   The topic to confirm is whether or ...
  • why would I watch a video that purports to talk about comparisons with a machine he doesn't receive until tomorrow, and when I can already read I5 (versus I7 or I9) and 3060ti? Time is money, man.  ...
