Why do my micro SD cards always give me shitty read/write speeds? I don't get it, I've tested this in multiple devices and whilst it should get 80mbps (up to), I'm getting 20. It's going directly into my tablet. I've checked the speeds on other devices using the provided SD Card Reader and still it just reports around 20.

It's not fake or some chink shit, it's a Samsung Evo 128GB. Even my previous card gave me shitty speeds but I didn't care then. This time the only reason I shelled out extra was for the speed.

What are optimal test conditions for a Micro SD card? I don't want to go through the hassle of returning this only for the next one to be the same

When I turned my computer on yesterday, it reached the loading screen for Windows, then shut down by itself. I immediately decided to switch out the PSU with a spare (non-modular with lower rated wattage) PSU without any further testing, just to be safe. I guess I just had a bad feeling about the power supply, since I hadn't ever seen my computer shutdown without my input. This problem hasn't reoccurred since I switched to the spare power supply, but I still don't know if the other power supply is faulty, or if there might have been some other cause for the shutdown. If I reinstall the other power supply, would there be a risk that it might damage other components? For what it's worth, the power supply that I removed is an OCZ ModXStream and it's almost 6 years old now.

I have an old machine that can wake on lan but only if it was turned of at the S4 ACPI state (hibernate). I want to use it as a common file server for me and my family. The problem is I can't hibernate the machine, i've tried with pm-utils, uswsusp, with the kernel utilities and non of them have been worked, so my next step is to try tuxonice, but I haven't found any instructions on how to install the patched kernel, and i'm too stupid to figure it out. How can I go and install the oti kernel and make it work?
In the case It does not work either, can i emulate the S4 call to bios so it can wol even if it's completely turned off?

How can I work out how long my algorithm will take?

I'm working on a program to solve a maths problem. It will likely take several weeks for the program to find a solution because it involves very large numbers (millions of digits/ megabytes per number).

I'm going to boot up an old PC and have it do the task, but I'd like to know how long the program should take before I run it.

On another note, are there any good ways of dealing with large numbers? At the moment I'm using C++ and Boost. Was wondering if maybe a GPU could help but I really don't know enough about hardware to tell.

You need to determine what kind of computation it is doing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computational_complexity_of_mathematical_operations

First, determine what it would be classified as in Big O notation.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_O_notation

From this, you can how the time of your algorithm is going to behave as you approach a certain value for time. You may even be able to adjust your algorithm accordingly.

A GPU would help, but if you don't know GPU programming then it's not going to help much.

The thing that would help the most for you right now is threading, if you're aware of how to create threads and how to split your algorithm up into independent sections for threading.

My knowledge ends there. I wouldn't even know where to tell you to go look to resolve that problem.

I do know that if you're expecting OpenCL to function similarly to a C-like language, you're going to have problems. OpenCL is meant specifically for programs that benefit from parallel computing.

Thanks for your help. Seems like GPU accel is something I should explore if there's even the slightest possibility of speeding up the process. I'm not sure about multiprecision/big number support though, maybe it'll be something I have to write myself. All this after I actually sit down and figure out how long it will take with X threads.

I'm looking at a 150 dollar HP laptop with these specs :
>AMD A8 4555m quad core 1.6 ghz-2.4ghz "turbo boost"
>AMD Radeon HD 7600G
>6GB DDR3 SDRAM (2 DIMM)
>750GB 5400RPM hard drive
>windblows 10

My question, or concern is I only really want this laptop so I can play CS and browse /g/ when im traveling.

I emailed the person selling this laptop on craigslist, he said he was using it as a "gaming" pc. So with that said I asked him what games he was playing and what his average frames were in those games, he sent me this back.

>Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (60 fps)

>Call of Duty MW3 (60 fps)

>Tomb Raider (2013) (45 fps)

>Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (45 fps)

So I ended up googling the system requirements for all of those games, im still unsure if the pc actually ran those games at the FPS's he told me though, as the specs it uses just barely meet the requirements for those games.

>Strange Windows 10 issue

So I've had this weird issue where my PC kind of freezes for like half a second every now and then, with no traces of any errors happening whatsoever afterwards.

Normally I'd pin something like this on a hardware fault, but here's the thing: It has only happened in Windows 10, and only in builds 10130 and up. Prior to 10130 this issue didn't exist at all.
During the insider previews I figured it was just another bug that would be fixed, so I reported it and kept reporting it with every new build until the final release.

Now a month or so into the final release this issue was still happening, so I went back to Windows 8.1 and, as expected, never experienced the issue again. At least until now, since I recently (yesterday) went back to Windows 10, thinking I might as well find out if it was fixed with the November update or whatever.

Turns out this randomly occurring issue is still around, and still leaves no trace after the short freezes. No errors or warnings in Event Viewer, no CPU spikes, no HDD spikes, no GPU spikes, no nothing. It just freezes for like half a second and leaves nothing behind to indicate that something out of the ordinary happened.

So now my question is this: Has anyone else experienced something like this ? Or does anyone at least have an idea how to possibly fix this issue ?

I've just now installed the chipset driver from MSI's website for my Z97 motherboard in hopes that a wonky driver might have been the issue, but since it's something that happens relatively rarely (2-3 times a day or so) and isn't possible for me to recreate, I don't know if this has solved the issue yet.

They are, but load times aren't in-game performance.
>HDD/SDD has no effect on in-game performance
This statement is only half right, though.
While it's true that HDD/SSD has no effect on in-game performance since an SSD only improves your load times, some games will actually perform better on an SSD.
However, this only applies to "open world" games that use things like texture streaming in order to not have any load screens, and even then most of these games will run perfectly well off an HDD. You'll only see a difference in very few games.

One example that I have personal experience with is SOMA. Before I got my SSD, that game would choke hard every time it had to load something. I'd see 100% usage on my HDD and the game would drop from 60 fps to like 5 fps for 10-20 seconds. This does not happen on my SSD.

But again, most games won't have any issues running off an HDD.
