    "Memory Drive" no longer possible?

    You mean a ramdisk? No, it's quite the contrary.. With memory drive, you can use a very low-latency ssd (Optane) as RAM.

    "Memory Drive" no longer possible?

    Hi folks. I noticed that the Memory Drive software for Optane ssds in no longer downloadable from the Intel's site. Has it been dropped, or it's just that I'm unable to find it?? Thanks.

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    I ended up picking a Samsung 983 ZET 480gb on ebay.. Couldn't resist, it was quite cheap (203 bucks shipped). Used but with less than 2 Tb written. In the end, I managed to get some kind of poor man's Optane drive :D Will use it as system drive and for swap and the smaller datasets. As main...

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    Mhh, the review is a bit suspect TBH.. Firstly, note that the guy seems to just pay attention to seq performance. Then, in the review he says "uh, the pc all of a sudden became very slow". Still, he was getting over 6Tb/s versus the original ~7Tb/s. No way that he could have "felt" this without...

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    That's spites me quite a bit.. It seems that there is no reliable source upon which one can make a "best buy"... :-/

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    Guys, I was eyeing the P5510. Top-notch reliability and PLP. It's not an Optane drive, that's for sure, but look at the review.. Intel P5510 NVMe Enterprise SSD Review It does over 700K IOPS with a latency of just 165 microseconds at low loads (presumably, low QD and threads). That's mazing...

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    Mh, no, as a matter of fact. I thought that a power loss could break any ssd if it was writing something at that instant...

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    Of course an Optane would be the ideal solution. But I need 2Tb bare minimum, and I have 500 EUR budget. At this price, not even heavily used units on ebay can be had, sadly. As I imagined. I can live with the shorter life of the consumer ssd, but one thing that pisses me off is the absence of...

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    Thanks for your reply. Indeed I should have provided more info. It's an AI workstation, I work mainly with tabular data and NLP/NLU, so the ssd will read/write a lot of very small files. Queue depth will not be more than 8-16, but more likely it will be 1-2-4 the vast majority of times. What...

    Understanding IOPS vs. Latency (in Random read/write)

    I was wondering if you could help me understanding the importance of IOPS vs. Latency in SSDs. Allow me to give a bit of context. I'm trying to decide between Firecuda 530 and Samsung PM9A3 for an AI-gpu workstation. These are very different beasts, the latter being an enterprise drive, but...

    EU Gigabyte RTX 3090 TURBO 24Gb - with accessories

    Hi Folks. I sell the video card in subject. Very slightly used, no scratches, dents, or defects whatsoever. Honestly, it had spent almost one year sitting in my workstation and doing nothing, for I have access to a DGX station owned by my employer. Additionally, I can include a sealed...

    3060 12gb

    Hi. I was wondering how does the 3060 12 gb perform in DL tasks. The card is tricked so that is limits itself upon detection of mining tasks, but it's unclear whether the same stands for NNs training/inference. Any information about that would be very welcome. Thanks.

    EPYCD8-2T Serious issues

    That's a damn good setup! May I ask which temp does the coolant reach during the hot months? Is there a mounting frame, or you just built it by yourself? That's very interesting and wise, and indeed many people recommends to do so. May I ask you for a pic, so that I can have a look at the...

    EPYCD8-2T Serious issues

    I somewhat imagined a Mo-Ra, but I thought you went for the 420. It's remarkable that even the 360 can handle something like 1500W worth of heat. Is it the EK-revo dual? Also it would be very useful to know which case you employed for each of these systems, if I may ask. Casing is a delicate...

    EPYCD8-2T Serious issues

    Your setups are quite impressive. My compliments :) May I ask you about...: 1. Details/components used in the waterloop for the 7-2070s machine. 2. Would you tell me/us more about the above-4G decoding that prevents using multiple gpus if not turned on? 3. What do you do with these machines...
