Some time ago i told you about awesome Vortex Race III keyboard. During the last month of my workflows i’ve noticed that desperately feel the lack of numpad and other extended keys, which are common for full sized keyboards. After not so long thinking i’ve decided to switch keyboard. Yesterday i’ve received full-sized, but still compact Vortex TAB90M keyboard, based around the same Cherry Blue MX switches. Build quality is rock solid.
Like leaksters say Radeon 6950XT refresh will bring new 18Gbbs memory sub-system and 8-10% to performance . I’ve decided not to involve myself into GPU race and stick with plain 6900XT. It is a performance banger under Windows 7 environment. Imagery by spacedrone808
Back in the 2017 Amd broke intel’s rule of low core count CPUs and now they are delivering large enterprise-level cache to consumer products.
Some already confirmed facts about 5800x3D:
▒ FPU OPERATIONS COMPARISON Tested with the latest version of AIDA64 v6.60 / Windows 7 x64 ESU. FPU JULIA FPU SINJULIA FPU MANDEL QUEEN Z-LIB RAY TRACE 32 RAY TRACE 64 AES SHA 3 As you can see blue cpu’s eat dust in terms of FPU performance, but it is worth to note that memory wise we have backwards situation, thanks to shiny new DDR5 memory subsystem, which blue team is already exploiting.
Previously i already wrote about Chinese audio manufacturers and their quality products. Till today i used quad driver FiiO FA7 earphones powered by my trusty cameraphone Nokia PureView 808 . After some not so long considerations i’ve decided to try out something new with bigger puch and almost randomy selected Shanling M6 DAP paired with FiiO FA9 6-driver IEMs. I know that using Nokia 808 was quite limiting factor for quad driver earphones like FiiO FA7.

I bet some of you are already tired of ugly g monopoly with their telemetric data mining platform os-called operating system. As for me, i fixed myself on Android 8.0, last operating system without support of neural networks. These nets help to fingerprint your personal data and send it to marketing companies later on. I’m pretty sure that people in sane condition will not like such behaviour at all. Pinephone is based around Linux and not android, it doesn’t track or profile you.
¶ PREFACE NOTE Finally i have won the battle with my laziness and forced myself to complete this so looooooooongish project. Enjoy!

Finally, I’ve managed to finish my retro DOS/Windows 98 build machine based on powerul Athlon. By finish i mean assemble parts on the table without any case. Why no case? Answer is simple: i’m lazy. And it is more convenient to me to keep it as open testbed for weirdo experiments of my own. Collecting items took almost four months to accomplish this project. Puter consists of multitude parts, which were acquired around the globe.
A small note on how to make things rollin'. Default configuration of Keenetic Ultra makes XZ1 Compact to stuck in a loop during authorization process. If you can’t pair your XZ1 to 5Ghz WiFi network just switch router network to channel: 56 And you are good to go. Yeah, simple as that. See you around! Imagery by spacedrone808
Previous owner of my main laptop installed the most modern intel WiFi chip, AX200 to be precise. Unfortunately, chip does not have drivers for beloved Windows 7. Yeah intel dropped support in 2019. So, i have to downgrade wireless card. Found on eBay compatible Dell WiFi 1820 : the last one to support Windows 7 operating system. I always loved Dell’s Precision series for super easy installation of hardware upgrades.

In one of the first posts I’ve promised to do a quick overview of this awesome laptop. So here it is! FRONT VIEW I/O SYSTEM KEYBOARD UPCLOSE SIDE PORTS CLOSED LID COMPAQ LOGO I like the overall aesthetics and design of the casing. Computer easily handles any DOS software. Keyboard is nice too, like tactile feel of it. My copy has a wobbly keyboard on the left side, but this due to it’s age of course.
CURRENTLY TEST IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR MOBILE VIEW! ▒ DIRECT COMPARISON In the very beginning of the test I underline the fact that we are comparing only resolution and not the dynamic range. In this category older FSI sensor is an outsider, for sure. Today’s rival is Samsung S22 Ultra with 1/1.33" sensor. A lil’ smaller than mighty Nokia 808, which comes with 1/1.2". Now let’s see how Nokia will hold up in such situation.
UPDATED ON: 2022-02-18 CURRENTLY TEST IS NOT OPTIMIZED FOR MOBILE VIEW! ▒ DIRECT COMPARISON In the very beginning of the test I underline the fact that we are comparing only resolution and not the dynamic range. In this category older FSI sensor is an outsider, for sure. Today’s rival is IPHUCK 13 PRO HYPER MAX with unknown sensor, even GSMarena don’t know actual size of it [after some research i find out that it is somewhere around 1/1.

FAQ ver 0.1b ▓ PREFACE This comprehensive guide will be handy for those of you who can’t figure out why hp printer is not detected by windows using usb connection and for those of you who are asking himself/herself “why do i need to do usb plug to setup device for wireless work?” hp is notoriously known in terms of really s#cky printer drivers. During all my career of system administrator i’ve constantly ran into driver related problems with hp devices.
Previously i was adept of japanese keyboard Topre RealForce RGB . Device relies on high-end rubber-dome capacitive key switches, which distinguish Realforce from generic rubber-dome keyboards. Solid construction is also included. However double shot ABS keycaps were not so durable in the long run of almost two years of heavy typing. So, i’ve decided to switch to something more reliable and compact. My search brought me to Vortex Race III RGB .
Most modern marketing smart-phones are mumbling about support of really large SD cards. But only on Hi-End models. I’m not even speaking about pathetic iphones, which are disabled in terms of external storage due to the greed of executive directors. In this note i will check old mastodonts like: Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact  Nokia PureView 808  for compatibility with such ENORMOUS storage device.
▒ SOME PREFACE WORDS …. Is it really possible? Read on to find out. Windows 200 is known for very fast performance, even compared to Windows XP and famous for absence of preinstalled bloatware. However, lack of drivers and software cripple system a bit. I was curious about ability to use this old operating system in 2022, maybe not as daily driver, but as a backup machine for secondary tasks.
