  • Windows Server releases also provide ReFS. But point taken. Aside from ZFS, which is mature and widely available, btrfs also has journaling and claims to provide self-healing features.
  • Yes, good point. I guess I want the enlargement aspect without the other treatment of noise reduction and sharpening. I'll investigate the Degradations > JPEG Artefacts filter in G'MIC.
  • This guy wasn't very popular among security software sellers when he said: https://www.zdnet.com/article/ex-top-mozilla-dev-to-windows-users-ditch-all-antivirus-except-microsofts-defender/
  • I'm confused because Geekbench is primarily a CPU benchmark, and Firepro D300 is a GPU. Doesn't really matter - I was not interested in Apple during the Firepro phase. What I appreciate about M1 is ...
  • Ports - definitely. For extra ports on my M1 Macbook 13, I have a Hyperdrive Duo. It really heats up, especially with UHD monitor connected via HDMI. It gets much hotter than the M1 Macbook itself. ...
  • I wonder, why the Trans-Atlantic accent? https://www.theverge.com/2015/4/2/8285139/max-headroom-oral-history-80s-cyberpunk-interview Kryten, the Red Dwarf android, was supposed to have a Canadian ...
  • Throughout the product lines there is only $200 difference between 14" and 16" so it seems like a no-brainer to get the M1 Macbook 16, given the (to me) inconsequential difference in size and weight. ...
  • Created discussion thread Masking in Topaz AI apps?
    Topaz Sharpen has a masking facility, but I do not see it in Topaz Gigapixel. Are there any solutions, such as using Topaz Studio to mask? I'm not sure Mask AI works on M1 MacOS. In this image, a ...
  • You'll have to drill down into the reviews themselves. For example, the MSI Optix MAG274QRF has 100% Adobe RGB gamut.
  • I really like their approach to monitor reviews. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/best/monitors-macbook-pro
  • IIRC, the answer was that you can slightly modify the EXIF and DxO PhotoLab will open it. Also IIRC, the only new feature is a higher-resolution LCD screen. "It would be nice if vendors could add a ...
  • The M1 Macbook 16 is 3456x2234 pixels Retina, so I can drag a maximum 1728x1117 Firefox window to my external UHD monitor. The M1 Macbook 14 is 3024x1964 pixels Retina, so maximum 1512x982 Firefox ...
  • ... and the M1 Max GPU is 4x faster, according to Apple. I'm not sure real-world software can take advantage of 16 and 32 GPU cores respectively, but benchmarks might. Notch for the video camera is ...
  • I did not expect two versions of the processor. The M1 Pro has 16 GPU cores, the M1 Max has 32. Both with 10 CPU cores, 2 of them high performance. No M1x branding AFAICT.
  • Were your predictions wrong? The 14" Macbook starts at $1999 for 16MB memory and 512GB storage. The 16" Macbook starts at $2499 for (perhaps) a similar configuration. High spec options offer up to ...
  • That was easy! Took only minutes. I'll have to read the release notes to discover what's new. Well, I don't like Gnome desktop. Perhaps it can be customized to work as I like it, but I don't have ...
  • Of the distros I have tried, Linux Mint is still the one that requires the least customization because most defaults are good. I was busy over the summer but now I'll upgrade to Uma. Which Ubuntu? ...
  • Thanks Sean, I did not know that the 2278G is similar to the i9-9900K. Xeon is usually matched with ECC because otherwise, why Xeon? The only time I noticed a memory error was way back on an SGI ...
  • It seems to me, in this thread, ON1 NoNoise is doing a better job than Topaz Denoise. https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/65569170 Maybe not - hard to say what else is involved in any of the edits.
  • Do you write machine learning (ML) programs using Nvidia GPU? Apple Silicon has the "neural engine" but I have not seen any blogs about how to use it.
