  • Larger Font Styles
    Guest:

    Just a quick heads-up that I've implemented larger font variants of our forum's light and dark page styles. You can select the style of your choice by scrolling to the footer of any page here. This might be more comfortable (it is for me) for those with high-resolution displays where the standard fonts, while permitting a lot of text to fit on the screen, might be uncomfortably small.

    (You can permanently dismiss this notification with the “X” at the upper right.)

Thanks for posting those! An impressive improvement! :)

Is the first drive SATA II by any chance? Interesting that it seems to have a speed cap at around 273? Or do you reckon that’s just the maximum drive speed on the older model?

@lovecakeboy @bghite it should say above the benchmark table if a SATA3 Capable drive is connected to a slower interface. If you want to rerun the benchmark hit the escape key and run

RS.exe /ident

This will specify the drive and interface capabilities.
