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...
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...
Also: Is the FireCuda 530 the fastest NVMe yet?
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).
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...
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.
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...
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...
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.
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...
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...
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...
