chelz: are there any noted benchmarks showing a speed difference for common tasks on 32bit vs 64bit linux?
chelz: aha found a few phoronix articles
chelz: good stuff
chelz: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=macosx106_ubuntu910_final&num=1 is nice
thansen: anyone here know if I can power a 2560x1600 monitor with a nvidia 230M with hdmi out?
GNU\colossus: thansen: I _think_ supporting that resolution is mandated by the HDMI spec
redeeman: but not the first hdmi spec, right?
GNU\colossus: redeeman: correct
GNU\colossus: I'd be surprised to find anything lower than 1.2 on today's video cards though
Fujk: would you guys say yes or no to an intel ssd?
Riotta: does anybody knows is it worth getting into DDR3 on AMD platforms nowadays? is DDR3 improvement is noticible?
bkero: It's noticible if you're using shared vram
bkero: Otherwise not really
bkero: If your use is limited by memory bandwidth, yes. Hint: It's probably not.

Kano: hi bkero
Kano: hi redeeman , look at the link too, 195.22
Kano: redeeman: VDPAU now allows multiple streams to be decoded at once, without the need to set any environment variables.
Kano: you should be happy when you decode 1 correctly with fglrx ;)
redeeman: yes... though practically useless given it doesn't work properly
Kano: did you try it?
redeeman: i meant vdpau in general
Kano: i have got no problem with vdpau, as soon as i get a gt220 i will test it more often
redeeman: it stutters sometimes here
redeeman: ffmpeg just doesn't do that
Kano: at the beginning of a file i have to press space
Kano: but then it works
Kano: in that case
Fujk: what does the monitor require to run dual setup? two dvis or, one dvi and one hdmi?
maligor: Fujk, what do you mean by dual setup?
Fujk: maligor: monitor
Kano: 1 monitor 2 pcs?
Fujk: 1 pc two monitors...
Fujk: hd 5870
Fujk: do I need two monitors with just dvi, or any other connector to make it work. like displayport or hdmi or is dvi enough?
Kano: dvi is enough
Kano: hdmi is just dvi with audio
Kano: would not hurt however
Fujk: alright, thanks
Kano: but i would use 1 big monitor, needs less power
Fujk: thats not a big issue
Kano: michaellarabel: did you try 195.22 on ion yet?
michaellarabel: bkero: Any update on GnuPG patch?
