    Can ransomware locked files be reversed with bit comparison to prior copy of a file?

    Quick question for anyone with any good knowledge regarding ransomware or if they can point me in a forum to post my question: I was hit with a ransomware, I notice that my HDD with 2TB files encrypted. I notice that many large files like the the hundreds MB to several GB has the same...

    You definitely have to spend significantly more than $170 to get any recent amd or intel cpu that can do faster 8+ multicore than dual 2696/7 v2. and even if we are talking about single cpu, you would have to spend significantly more than $80 to get any recent amd/intel cpu that can beat one...

    Marginal improvement in multicore. Here's the bench for 2696 vs 2695 v2 . If you can score a pair of 2697 v2 with great price and able to sell your 2695 v2 at good price. https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/12105972 https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/12107701

    I thought 2697 were supposed to be the "better" one since it's more expensive than the 2696 and also have more MB compatibility and is not OEM and is guaranteed to work on more MB?

    I can definitely confirm that they do run at 3.1ghz all-core speed as well as 3.5ghz single core speed. If you have a good (doesn't even have to be great or liquid or anything fancy) cooler, they will stay at 3.1ghz all day long for max multicore tasks.

    At least you can brag that you have a pair of 12 core cpu...lol... but that cpu is not much than a ryzen 4500U 15W 6core 6 thread notebook cpu ;) Btw, what case are you using for that Z9-PRD12 MB?

    My dual 2696 v2 is inside a box with the asus z9pe-d16 MB with 256GB 1333 ram 16X16GB . so it's definitely not as fast as yours memory bandwidthwise ;) This is the benchmark fo my system. Not the best but it gives a rough idea of the performance: Asus Z9PE-D16 Series Performance Results -...

    Whats the benchmarks? I was expecting the seller not to accept my offer.....lol... oh well.. ;) It would've been nice to be able to use this in the lenovo s30 but that's not the case. I do have two D30, one with dual 2695 v2 and another with dual 2667 v2. I guess this will replace the 2695...

    just made an offer for two 2696 v2 at $79 each. With tax to my state on ebay (you suck for starting to collect tax on EVERY state), the total came out to be $169 and change for two 2696 v2. So not too bad I guess.... YMMV 1950X multicore performance for $169. even one single cpu multicore...

    Until you have a breakdown, then you will appreciate the lenovo near complete usage of generic components ;)

    Good information to know that 2696 v2 works with the HP z820 which i am a little surprised because i figure hp might not support oem cpu since this cpu is not on their z820 cpu list. I know it also works with Lenovo D30 which i have. I personally prefer the Lenovo D30 (dual socket will work...
