Not sure if any of the tips in the link will help; https://www.back2gaming.com/focus-st...ows-8-and-8-1/

Drivers up to date?
Older SSD?
Brand/model?

Still pretty solid numbers.

It's a SanDisk unit IIRC. I'll pull out details. But last time I tested it for speed during benchmarks it was rating fairly high and had damn good transfer rates.

Disabling the page file is a great way to break a lot of programs with hardly documented error codes, sometimes nothing at all. On machines with plenty of ram, you could give them a meg and the program would run just fine.

Also, 7.6 is about what I get with a single Samsung 840 pro on windows 7. Seems about right, to be honest. Wouldn't let it bother you much, those numbers don't mean much.

A few months ago, I did a minor refresh of my home machine just before updating to Win10. Maxed out the RAM at 16 GB and installed a new 240 GB SSD as the boot drive.

As I'm limited to 16 GB of memory as a function of the motherboard, and I tend to have a lot of stuff open, the page file gets a workout- no way around that. But since I had my old 120 GB SSD, formerly the boot drive, now just sort of lying around surplus, I decided to do an experiment. I put that drive back into the system, declared it to be drive P, and moved the page file (set to 32 GB) to it, with nothing else.

This was done mostly because I wanted to avoid putting a lot of write cycles on the new drive (I'm still a tad superstitious about that), although it also has the theoretical benefit of allowing writes to occur simultaneously on the OS drive and the page file.

I can't think of any way to conduct an A/B test to gauge whatever performance gain or loss is realized by doing this (the new SSD has somewhat faster ratings than the old one), so it's not the most conclusive test in the world, but I'm pleased with the performance, and no longer fret about the workload I'm putting on the shiny new drive.

Thats because the windows index is garbage and mostly wrong. Thats why they got rid of it in win 10.

Use 3DMark11 if you want good tests.

yes I know you can get the tests via command line


but i also know that it's silly to download questionably sourced benchmarking apps no matter how legit toms hardware says they might be.

Yes, all 3+GB of it... + load STEAM.

Not to get into a big MT debate about the relevance of any of it but isn't 3D Mark more about graphics? That is unless you want to go "all in" (as in spend $$$ to upgrade)?

3d Mark tests everything, cpu, ram, physics, graphics etc.

On a side note i received teh q502 today.. the seller fucked up the listing. He claimed it's the USB model. Nope its the standard non usb model so i'll try it but there's a good chance i'll return it.

MX Master is the most amazeballs (no *****) mouse ever.

Though the MX Revolution might have had a better thumb wheel.

Had a MX Master before this one and i always liked that one. This one is also nice accept the button for the page forward, its a little to small and on a little difficult to push

As I put many hours a day on my mouse, I'm not willing to compromise on price. Plus I make work pay for it (this time.. the first one I got).

it's like a bed. invest the most in the things you use most.

Replaced the EVGA GTX 970 SSC in the HTPC / VR rig for an EVGA GTX 1080 SC. Super sampling is a god send in VR, so the new card's been amazing in Assetto Corsa and Dirt Rally VR. Also pre-ordered the Oculus Touch controllers, can't wait to play Budget Cuts.
