Adam isn't wrong, but I think he missed the biggest driver. The E7-8893 v2 is intended for octa-processor systems. Meaning they will have eight of these beasts in a single motherboard. (That's what the first "8" means in the processor number, based on the Xeon naming scheme.) Since having 8 CPUs is such a rare thing, intended for such specialized ...

Different Uses and Environments Consumer-grade Core processors are designed for everyday desktop or gaming applications and are therefore optimized to operate at higher clock speeds. Most consumer applications cannot take advantage of more than a few processor cores and would benefit significantly more from a processor that operates at 4+ GHz than having 8 ...

It should have with sequential / random Reading and Writing speeds to do. A harddrive which is "optimized for survelliance" have optimization on its sequential Writing rate, and a pretty decent sequential Reading rate, but random rates are really crappy. Thus its optimized for survelliance Tools which writes data in a steady nice stream. A gaming harddrive ...

The signals from the graphic card are the same regardless of what kind of screen you have. The light coming from the LCD's backlight, and thence through the LCD, will be the same. (Or, if you have a "pure LED" screen, the light coming from the LEDs will be the same.) The "anti-glare"/matte screen is the same as the glossy screen, except that a matte ...

In theory, any MXM 2 video card will work. As with their bigger cousins, PCIe, any card will work if it's compatible with the slot. The caveat of course is the voltages, but with the older cards they were designed to get all they need directly from the slot (unlike the power hungry monsters today that need direct feeding from the PSU). The other ...

The old system probably has a very small hard drive, so why not make a copy of the entire drive as virtual drive image, and then run that system on another modern machine as a virtual PC? You can do it this way: Attach the old drive to some modern machine that has the same drive connection (EIDE? maybe not so easy to find). Use Microsoft SystemInternals ...

Many complex Windows software suites will not only rely on files copied to designated locations in the filesystem, but also registry entries. Typically the registry entries are not only just simple keys in HKCU/SOFTWARE but may also include numerous registered COM components, type libraries, and classes. Such suites may also depend on other redistributable ...

The i7 series is focused at end-user computation in desktop environments where the Xeon processors are for non-consumer high performance computing, often used in servers, and are optimized for such. For example, see that the Xeon processor can handle around 1.5TB of RAM. Clock speed is not the only factor which determines what makes a processor expensive. ...

The word scan-head simply means the horizontal bar that goes up-and-down along the scanner (for flatbed scanners). It is static for auto-feed scanners. Optical resolution This is often given as a single number say 600dpi and is related to the amount of detail the scan-head can capture horizontally -loosely speaking. Technically, it is the number of ...

Assuming you're talking about a current-generation Macbook or Macbook Pro, the difference in performance between the two models you cited (2.3 GHz w/ 6 MB L3 cache vs. 2.7 GHz w/ 8 MB L3 cache) will make, roughly, between a 2% to 15% difference, depending on the exact workload. It's definitely nothing earth-shattering. But it all depends on how long it takes ...

Generally speaking yes. Given a PCIe 3.0 x16 slot, your PCIe 1.x and 2.x cards will be compatible. And yes, a x16 slot will support x16, x8, x4, x2, x1 cards. Have a look at this: https://www.pcisig.com/news_room/faqs/pcie3.0_faq/#EQ6

Drives that say they are optimized for surveillance should be using a part of the ATA standard known as the Streaming feature set. This feature set places a priority on processing the data quickly, rather than the quality of the data itself. The end result of this is very low or no frame loss, which is what you want in a video capture system. If your camera ...

DDKJ3ALC000 is the part identifier. See here.

There is no technical difference. The trayless ones take up slightly less space but it's harder to get the drives in and out of it. The tray ones have a convenient handle for pulling the drive out of the enclosure. Also the tray models tend to have an activity light on each tray to indicate drive power and access. The trayless models usually have just ...

The Wikipedia article linked in Indrek's comment should be a good place to start for your questions. The integrated graphics processor is located inside the CPU. Here is a picture showing the layout of a CPU die, and the location of the graphics hardware. The regular system RAM is shared with the GPU. It will use as much as it needs up to a maximum ...

Short answer: Newegg has a series of videos explaining some basic details about different components, but it's more about walking through a build than explaining what the components do and how they interact. Here: http://www.newegg.com/Computer-Hardware/Store the videos are in the middle of the page. More time-consuming method: Get your hands on a comptia ...

From the red book it looks as if SATA 2 is supported only with the ServeRAID-MR10M card http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redpapers/pdfs/redp4362.pdf Pages 29-31

To add to what RaveTheTadpole was saying, the systems which have 8+ sockets are used mostly in finance (think high-frequency trading) where they need to keep massive databases in RAM. In this field, Oracle and RISC chips are still in vogue, because they can hold up to 96TB of RAM - while the Intel space can only hold 12TB (and that is with these newest ...
