Can anyone tell me what the refresh rate on the RGB LED screens that Dell is putting in their new m6400 precision line? Is it the same 60hz that their screens usually are or is it higher now that they are using LED?
I need to know this answer to decide on if it will work for my application. (viewing stereo images)
I have LED screen, and in Display Settings it is recognised as: "Generic PnP monitor on ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650" , and the only refresh rate possible is 60 Hertz. Question is - isn't it a bit low? Is it normal for that screen?
I recently just purchased and received a fancy Dell e6400 from one of the many dell deals. My eyes are light sensitive from looking at many computer screens over the years and due to this I avoid LCD screens and much prefer flat CRT monitors. My goal is to use the e6400 as my workstation computer while using the VGA out to power my 19in Sony CRT .....
How exactly often do they happen? I plan on getting an FW very soon, I could buy one early Feb, or wait until middle march will be the best times for me to buy one financially wise. My question is if I wait until middle March sometime, do you think there will be some upgrades on it opposed to the current FW390CTO?
I'm using a Studio 1535 here and I have a 16GB Corsair Flash Voyager GT USB thumbdrive. I noticed that the write speed of my thumbdrive is slow when I copy files from my laptop to the thumbdrive. However, the write speed of my desktop is very fast.
I intend to get the Studio XPS 16 laptop ASAP (at least as soon as Dell Hong Kong decides to restock the SXPS 16). However after reading a few posts here am slightly concerned about the dips in frame rate ppl are experiencing while gaming.
Done some testing of chargers and charge rates. My non scientific findings as follows.
Battery start capacity 91.3%.
After 19 minute charge time -
Using 70watt charger :
Off 98% On low power 98% On full power 97%
Using 30watt charger :
Off 98% On low power 97.5% On full power 94.5%
To conclude the larger charger mostly maintains charge rate regardless of load on the computer.
The standard 30w charger maintains its charge rate on normal use, yet go to 100% CPU and charge rate drops by around 50%. It possible this could be far worse with an external USB HDD attached, 3G dongle and so on.
It seems that the computer can consume a little more than the 30w charger can output, but only of use in extreme circumstances.
Even with a larger charger the charge rate may drop if you had the computer consuming excessive levels of power, not sure what point this may occur.
Additionally batterymon charge rate indicator did not support the real world test.
It seems most of the people I know who do a lot of burning and use of their superdrive's on the macbook pros are buying external optical drives because the internal optical drive in the mac is failing (not responsive or working anymore).
I'm just wondering, for expensive as Macs are, why is it that this is happening? I thought with the price one could expect high quality parts and not parts that fail within the first two years of owning the laptop.
I have a HP dv6408nr that needs a hard drive. I have found a Seagate Momentus 7200.4 500GB. I have searched on Google for days and i have yet to find a definitive answer if my computer actually supports the 3GB/s transfer rate that new hdd is capable of. I do know that the drive i have is a 1.5GB/s however i have not checked it for a jumper. The hdd that my lappy shipped with has the 1.5GB/s transfer rate.
I had sent in a ticket to blizz with DxDiog and the MsInfo and they cound out there was some errors in some applications and is now fixed c: I simply just did a facotry recovery since honestly i just have steam, wow and a drawing program installed so it was nothing huge lose whne i did it. So everything is working just fine right now ! I did try the one with truing off anti aliasing and it did work as well even if my frame rate is back to it's 90+ it jumped up to 100+
So it started last saturday that my frame rate dropped drastically from 90+ to 15- on World Of Warcraft. I followed the steps that i got told with updating drivers and such, but still low and un-playable.
It's really strange and all, i bought this laptop for like 1 month ago and had no problems until now. There was a windows update (i use win 8.1) last week that first messed with my latency at first, but then my FPS.
When i play on steam per say Assasians creed and Portal i have no problem but it seems to only be on WoW.
I've noticed when playing vidoes, the video frames update at a slower pace to the point where it feels that movie is being played in slow motion. Sometimes this conditions stays longer other for few minutes. It does not make any differene if I am streaming or playing a movie stored on the HD (machine doesn't have CD drive).
I've ensure there are no other apps running that might seep power away from main processor/RAM or video processor. All the drivers are latest & greatest and I don't see any warnings anywhere in the system manager.
It has Win 8 and Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 1.6G of video RAM which seems decent enough to play a video file smoothly.
I'm a somewhat pleased (after months of displeasure) SXPS1645 owner *points to sig* but after 5 months of carrying this thing with me to my campus daily (and pretty much everywhere else I go) this machine is heavy and big and bit overkill since when I'm outside I rarely use it for video editing and gaming which I tend to do at home. So for the Fall(ish) I'm going to be in the market for an ultraportable, but after using this machine it's going to be hard to go to a machine with a wimpy atom processor or even a ULV C2D. So I found the Adamo XPS and it appeals to me in the same way the SXPS did, an eye catching design that isn't bulky and still performs well. However looking at the specs currently available for it I was disappointed. It's using a hodgepodge of outdated parts. I wanted to basically start a thread on potential component refreshes for the Adamo XPS, in the hopes that by the time I'm ready to purchase one some of these things will become reality. Also I'm curious about other brands of ultraportables (NOT netbooks) that people use/have used and would recommend.
Maybe I missed it? Since I'm sending my 1645 back and my wife likes her 1340 a lot I was curious if anyone heard anything at CES or otherwise about a refresh of the XPS 13 line.
Would really like to see one with an i3 or an i5 and a 335nvidia ro better with 1gb... but i sort of wonder if they'll wait until after the Alienware m11x is out and loses hype so that it doesn't have any competition.
Dell's has been very quiet on their successful line of business laptops. Is there any news or rumors on yet to be released Vostro's? I would like to see something new other than the A860, 1510/2510, and 1710.
